This is how I roll:







Also Green Arrow and JLA once in a while. Currently trying to follow the Final Crisis storyline.

I tend to prefer non-powered superheroes, if you get my drift.

Batman's thighs scare me.

I'm not much of a superhero person. (I wouldn't know where to start!) I like Sandman, Preacher, Lucifer, etc..

I used to read Archie comic books as a kid and I have a Collectible Superman comic book that was my Dad's. That reminds me I should look into how much that issue is worth.

I've picked up bits and pieces of the Final Crisis story arc, but haven't seriously tried to follow it ... I've got a feeling it'll turn into something like Cher's Farewell Tour ... I'm not a Cher fan, mind you, but her Farewell Tour should be titled "The Ongoing Farewell Tour" ...

For the most part, I agree with ya, but I'm a huge Green Lantern fan too ... Guy Gardner, by far, is my favorite GL ... He's proven himself a hero time and time again, with or without powers too ...

There's been a good couple Thor one-shots recently. Ages of Thunder and Reign in Blood were awesome, and I'm looking forward to Man of War, but tragically AoT and RiB came out June/July and MoW isn't going to be done until November.

Also, I need to find copies of The Shadow, because the shadow was the bomb.

That's only a partial list, Rev. Just off the top of my head. But I should try reading more superhero stuff. Know if CIVAL WAR is any good?

Best,
Jason

Honestly, I'm not much of a Marvel reader, but Civil War caught my attention at first ... S'gonna be interesting to see how they bring the real Captain America back alive ...

I loved Thor. I used to have loadsa Superman comics when I was young and have kept a few of the original Spiderman comics..lol. Unfortunately I lent a load out to someone at college and that was the end of those. Oh well, serves me right I guess.


...and I'm a great lover of the Beano....oy.... that humour is still great.

The only superhero comics I read are THE BOYS, which is disgustingly good. POWERS and ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN by Bendis and BATMAN by Morrison, who I think is the only comic writer who can write while using recreational drugs, and EX MACHINA by Vaughan, who I think is the best writer in comics -- at least on technical terms.

Morrison has gotta be one of everyone's favorite writers, but Gibbons and Johns have been doing some amazing things with Green Lantern too ... I thoroughly enjoyed Steve Niles take on The Creeper and Duncan Rouleau's Metal Men also ...

So, fuck, I know comics are hella nerdy and shit, but if you check the last page here, I mentioned a little comic book called "Scalped". And goddammit, I am absolutely in love with it. Best comic I've ever read. I'm bumping this just to say that anyone with half an interest in the medium should check it out, from the start. The first trade is a little bit shonky, still good though - but by the second and third trades, it's just gotten better and better. And it's still getting better. I'm gushing over this like mad. I've been reading other highly regarded comics on the shelves right now, and honestly, the closest one to it - Unknown Soldier - is still miles behind.

I also praised Northlanders, another Vertigo title (I kinda nearly exclusively read Vertigo books) in my post from however many months ago. To be honest, the most recent long arc about the Irish guy running away from Vikings or whatever fucking sucked. I tried to get into it, but the whole thing just seemed to go around in circles and even with the big blow in the last issue, I still didn't give a shit. Good news is, the new standalone is great, so check it out.

Anyway, I just want all you guys to keep talking about comics, because that shit is allllright.
