Comic books can be entertaining.

My favorites were Spiderman, X-Men and Fantastic Four.

As for the threads, I think we should definitely strive for quality over quantity. there have been a few really crappy topics and I've already seen 2 duplicate threads. There is really no reason for that.

Let's maintain the integrity of the lounge peeps. :cool:

This thread is fine though. I know from the past that a lot of members either read them or have read them. Lot's of people have a favorite super hero or super villian.

I read/collect comics, mostly the books that collect storylines like the Frank Miller Daredevil run and the DC Archives and Marvel Masterworks. Rarely do I buy new comics because the artwork is lousy these days for most new comics, but I bought the most recent Daredevil hardcover collection and thought it was incredible, from an art point of view and a writing point of view.

Good writing is very important too. Unfortunately, with the exception of Daredevil and sometimes a few other titles, when I flip through new comics in the stores, the art is so crappy that I can't even get into the story. An example is Warlord, one of my favorite comics as a kid. DC brought it back, I think as a six issue limited series. When I flipped through the first issue the art looked like it was drawn by someone with two broken arms. Sadly I don't even know how the story was because the art was so horrendous. I remember Sandman started out as one of the best drawn titles with incredible stories like Doll's House and Season Of Mists, however, by the time of The Kindly Ones, I could barely even read it the art was so bad. The Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleev run of Daredevil just wrapped up and I finished reading it a few days ago. That showed what happens when you mix perfect writing with perfect art. Great stuff.

Actually, Judge Dread was a British comic that became successful and the Sandman was written by Neil Gaiman, who is British. Hellblazer is very successful comic that's been around for almost twenty years, has a British main character in the form of John Constantine and usually British writers and artists. Plus, Marvel had Captain Britain in the seventies. ;)

Does anyone remember the great run Iron Man had in the late eighties when he became an alcoholic, lost his corporation to Obediah Stane, won it back and kicked Obediah Stane's ass and later had the Armor Wars where he brutally beat up the villains who he suspected stole some of his techology and then was shot and paralyzed by a crazy female stalker?
Or at the same time when Captain America battled the Scourge who was killing all those barely used villains and then later had his Captain America status revoked by Ronald Reagan leading to a battle between him and the pretender Captain America who succeeded him? Man, Marvel was great in the eighties. Those were the days when you could look forward to the next issue of a book. Sadly they tanked for a good part of the nineties with the whole "Spider Man clone thing" and the Heroes Reborn stuff.

There were different Green Lanterns (in fact there was a whole Green Lantern Corps) with Hal Jordan being the most used and most famous Green Lantern. The black Green Lantern was John Gardner and, for a time in the late eighties early nineties he even had his own book. I don't know what ever happened to him.
I think one of the worst storylines and in the early nineties when the Punisher had a skin transplant and became black for a few issues, teaming up with Luke Cage Garth Ennis started writing it a few years back.

This guy named Joe Quesada became the Editor In Chief of Marvel and he made some major changes to the Marvel Universe such as giving an origin to Wolverine (in an amazing six issue limited series called Origin) and having alot of character's secret identities revealed to the public like Spider Man (in the current Civil War).

I haven't read Civil War, but I've flipped through some of it in the stores. It looks like it will probably be interesting, it has really good artwork. I think it's seven issues and so far only two (maybe even three by now) are out. I'll probably wait for the collected volume if I read the whole thing. When I read about it I was reminded too of Zero Hour, although I never read Zero Hour, just read about it.

The Civil War series is pretty good. Right now only the first 2 editions have come out with a dozen or so tie-ins. I really like the concept behind it. The whole national security vs. civil liberties debate has some interesting real life reflections.

Sounds like an interesting concept. A lot of times those hugely hyped/massive crossover limited series don't match up anywhere near the expectations. I heard DC's Infinite Crisis was like that.

DC has Batman, one of my favorites and they always did a good job with their adult titles such as Sandman, Swamp Thing and The Preacher. As a kid, I loved reading Sgt. Rock and the Haunted Tank. Crisis on Infinite Earths was my favorite of the massive crossover event series for both Marvel and DC.
Marvel probably had more great characters overall but when they fell off in the nineties, I think they fell off harder, although lately they have improved alot.

I know of it , but I remember Blade from the team called night stalkers which from the last Blade movie looks like it may become a spin off movie .....The Nightstalkers is a fictional trio in the Marvel Comics universe who had reluctantly banded together to fight occult and supernatural threats.

It was composed of the vampire-hunters Blade and Frank Drake (who had fought Count Dracula in the 1970s series Tomb of Dracula); and, also from that series, private detective Hannibal King, a "neo-vampire" with vampiric abilities but only a craving, not a need, for drinking blood. They were gathered by Doctor Strange in Nightstalkers #1 (Nov. 1992) to battle an immediate threat, but under his larger, hidden agenda.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightstalkers_(comics)

try telling me Rogue doesn't kick ass!
Powers
Rogue is a mutant who formerly possessed the ability to absorb the memories, abilities, personality, and outward physical characteristics of other beings through skin-to-skin contact. Such transfers lasted for 60 times longer than the contact time, with extended contact resulting in the possibility of permanent absorption. No upper limit had been determined for the number of beings Rogue could simultaneously imprint.
Upon absorbing another's memories, Rogue also gained any associated emotional responses. Rogue was typically able to control such emotions, however absorbing psyches more powerful than her own resulted in Rogueís psyche being supplanted.

After permanently absorbing the powers of Ms. Marvel, Rogue possessed an amalgamated mutant human/alien Kree physiology that granted her a degree of immunity to poisons, and a virtually indestructible body. Rogue also possessed Ms. Marvel's above normal reflexes and psychic "seventh sense" that enabled her to subconsciously anticipate an opponentís moves. Whilst Rogue possessed Ms. Marvel's psyche, her "double" consciousness made her resistant to telepathic probes from even the most powerful mind readers. She also gained Ms. Marvel's incredible strength, and supersonic flight.

After absorbing the powers of an alien Skrull, Rogue began to spontaneously reactivate previously absorbed abilities. Rogue could also tap into the residual psychic energy of those she had imprinted to determine their status and to relive past events from their perspective.

Recently, Rogue has seemingly permanently absorbed the fire-based powers of Sunfire.

Abilities
Rogue could formerly draw upon the combat and espionage training of Carol Danvers by granting control of her body to her alternate personality, a duplicate of Danvers'. Rogue can also speak fluent French.

It's a really good read and if you like The Joker or Two-Face, it's a good showcase for those characters. Plus, it has the best of the Bruce Wayne romances, the romance with Silver St. Cloud.

Civil War is really really good so far.

Its gonna be awhile before Im done with civil war,but intend to read up on a few others afterwards.

-Runaways
is a critically acclaimed Marvel Comics comic book series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The series features a group of teenagers who try to make up for the evil done by their supervillain parents by becoming superheroes.
^sounds intresting

-The Ultimates
Each thirteen-issue miniseries is regarded as a "season" of the same title. The team is a re-imagining of the Marvel Universe superhero team, the Avengers.
^Ive heard good things.

-Wolverine Origins
Origin tells the story of the origin of the superhero Wolverine, best known as a member of the X-Men. Since the character first appeared in the early 1970s his history had often been shrouded in mystery, with bits of information revealed piecemeal over time (notably in Weapon X), but this series was the first to reveal Wolverine's early days and his original background.

I've read most of The Sandman run. It is one of my favorite comics, with plenty of imagination in the stories. It creates its own mythology. The earlier stories are all very strong with excellent artwork. I think later in the run the stories were a bit more inconsistent, sometimes excellent and sometimes not so excellent and the art, for the most part, took a nosedive later on too. If you want to get into The Sandman, I recommend the graphic novel Preludes and Nocturnes, the book that reprints the first eight or so issues.

Well, there are two things you can do. Most of the major well known comic characters still have new issues coming out so you could go to a store and pick up the latest issues and start from there.
The other thing is if you want to read the early issues and see how the series began, you can pick up trade paperbacks that reprint many of the early issues. They are books that collect storylines in one volume or sometimes several volumes if the storyline is a long one.
Also, if you want to get in "on the groundfloor" with certain series, meaning starting with the first issue, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars just to begin. Marvel has a series of hardcover (and sometimes cheaper paperback) titles called The Marvel Masterworks, that reprint ten issues of so in hard cover editions. I have the Amazing Spiderman Volumes 1-5 which gives me issues 1-50 of the original series in full color. They have editions for The Hulk and for The X-Men. The downside is that these editions are $50 each, sometimes you can find discounts on them like I did. DC has their equivalent called The DC Archives. I was able to collect all of the early Batman's and Superman's as they were in the thirties and forties.
Good luck.

Ive been downloading them and reading them on my comp ;] Theres little fan groups out there that scan a bunch of comics,and you can download whole sets pretty easily.

Its not Ideal,but...no way would I have bought all those comics.

Im pretty much caught up with the Civil War storyline + tie-ins.

Ive also been reading the Sandman comics.Pretty awesome.
--------------------------------------------------------------
That Captain America storyline from, I believe #s 332-350 where the other guy became Captain America and Steve Rogers had his own adventures in a backup strip was one of my favorite CA storylines. I wish Marvel would put out a trade paperback of those issues.

Hey.have you been reading the Civil War storyline?

12-12-2006, 04:34 PM
I actually haven't been reading the Civil War stories. I flipped through a few of the issues in stores but I figured I'd wait until it was released in trade paperback form. Does it live up to the hype so far? When is it wrapping up anyway?

jason100x
12-12-2006, 04:39 PM
Oh, I forgot to mention that Marvel has also been putting out some of the Marvel Masterworks in a trade paperback form that you can buy instead of the hardcover form. Those are a lot cheaper, I think around $15. They don't have as many volumes available as they do for the hardcover volumes though. Barnes and Nobles carries those.

If you don't mind going without color, Marvel has their Essential series that collects something like 23 comics in one book; they are like a phone book. DC has an equivalent also, I forgot what they call it.

I like it alot.But Ive been reading the tie-ins too,The Wolverine tie ins and Spiderman tie-ins are definetly the best,and add alot to it.

When is it wrapping up anyway?

Thats what I was going to ask you ;)

and since I havent read comics in a long time,Im out of the loop & trying to track down which sidestories are out,I think the the new Punisher war journals are out,and I have to tracks those down too I guess,but they do look promising.

jason100x
12-12-2006, 05:32 PM
I know that The Punisher has been written lately (am not certain if he still writes it now) by Garth Ennis who does a very good job of combining the action with rather grim humor. He wrote The Preacher and I don't know if you've read that title or not but the Punisher stories I've read have the same feel as The Preacher.

I'm somewhat out of the loop myself with what is going on currently. I've been more buying older stuff. I know that one of the best comics out there now, if not the best, is Daredevil. Brian Michael Bendis just left the title and his run on Daredevil had some of the very best issues (definitely dark adult-type stuff) ever. The artwork by Alex Maleev complimented his writing brilliantly. I can't say enough about that title. Now they are both off the book and I think it's Ed Brubaker who is writing now. I looked at a few issues in the store and it looks like it's still really good even if it might not his the heights of the Bendis run.

I don't know when the Civil War wraps up, I can't remember if it was an eight issue or a six issue limited series. Is it necessary to buy all the tie-ins or can you follow the story with the main series? Like I said, I wanted to wait for it to come out in some sort of collection but if you need the crossovers and tie-ins, then that might be hard to follow.

Can you recommend where to srart on that daredevil comic? What the series titled exactly,just daredevil?

This will help you see which volumes deal with which storylines: http://www.manwithoutfear.com/daredevil.shtml

It's hard to tell you where to start. It depends on what you want to read. You could get into the Brian Michael Bendis stuff, all of which has been reprinted in the trade paperback format. If you want to start with Bendis, Underboss is an excellent starting point and begins the long running storyline that drives the book while he wrote it.
You could start with the Frank Miller run from the '80s, which is available in a series called Marvel Visionaries with Frank Miller. That's three volumes but that storyline is long and intricate. That's the storyline that (in a watered down version) formed the backbone to the movie.
You could also get the Marvel Masterworks of Daredevil and read the series from the beginning. The very first issue of Daredevil is an excellent intro to the series, in fact it's probably my favorite issue of the '60s Marvel.
That website I sent you the link to gives you specifics as far as what issue is what and there are summaries of many of the storylines so you can try to determine what you might want to read.

A word of warning about Daredevil: The series had some of the best storylines I have ever read in comics but in between the good writers, there were many periods where the comic is terrible. You can't wrong with most of the trade paperbacks but there are periods where the comic is in bad shape and a waste of your money unless you want to collect everything. Most of the 300s of series one come to mind and the period before Frank Miller took over in the late '70s also come to mind

That's great that there are plans to come out with a Shadow movie. The one in 1994 was okay at best but The Shadow deserves another shot. The Shadow is another of my favorite comic series. The 1973-1975 series written by Denny O'Neil was an amazing run and I also loved the 1986 limited series and the 1987-1989 series, which featured more "adult" storylines.

There's some good, intelligent comics out there with a good writing & art.

My favourites out of what is currently being published:
The Exterminators - very funny, nasty comic from Vertigo about a bunch of bug killers.
Bomb Queen - ultimate anti-hero.
Fables - brilliant series by Bill Willingham.
The Progamme - one of the most current political thrillers out there, wrapped around a sort of superhero comic.
Almost anything by Warren Ellis - currently Black Summer, but others include Stormwatch, Authority, Switchblade Honey, etc.
Almost anything by Greg Rucka - favourites being White Out, Gotham Central, Felon.
Almost anything by Ed Brubaker - favourites being Criminal, Sleeper, An Accidental Death, Gotham Central.




Older stuff:
Grendel - by Matt Wagner
Stray Toasters - Bill Sienkiewicz
Almost anything by Alan Moore - Top 10 was the last one of his I really got into.
Lots of stuff by Jamie Delano, Grant Morrison, & Peter Milligan as well.


There's a lot of crap comics published, but there's stuff out there & still being published which stands up to any genre in quality.

Aye, World War Hulk was quality.

Yes but Planet Hulk was even better. The Hulk gets exiled (by the Illuminati which consist of Professor X, Doctor Strange, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Iron Man, and Black Bolt) and lands on the planet of Sakaar where he is taken captive, and we see Hulk let loose gladiator style with some all new comrades as they start a revolution. Hulk ultimately falls in love, becomes emperor and is expecting a child, when the shuttle he was exiled in blows up, destroying his pregnant queen and a million other people. This of course sets the table for Hulk returning to Earth with his new friends severely pissed off and looking for revenge.

While all the action is great, the real meat of the story - getting the Hulkís actual view (not Bruce Bannerís) on how he is perceived in a state where he is actually doing what he wants to do is awesome! Just when you thought every angle to analyze the Hulk/Bannerís psyche has been used up - this is actually the most intriguing I have read.

I kinda fell off on the comic scene. But yeah, I came back during WWH.
Planet Hulk was good too. I can see why Hulk was so pissed off.
Got dropped on a planet, was getting his ass whopped, came back as the ass whopper he is, beat the Red King, had a normal life with a baby, with a bad ass alien chick, get's his whole world blown up, and now the Illuminati has got to pay.
WWH: Beat the **** out of all the X-Teams, Dr. Strange got punked, Black Bolt got WHOOPPED, Iron Man with his whole Hulk Buster **** got smashed, and then...
We get a fight with Sentry...:nonono:
I know Sentry is supposed to calm Hulks anger...
But if it was going to be a last round fight, it should have been Thor. Or the Silver One.
I don't know. The Surfer at his current levels, would probably turn WWH into a big puddle of nothing just by blinking.
Thanos needs to return, pimp smack the **** out of Ultron, Warlock, rip Drax's head off, and remind the L.T. if he ever got pissed off, he'd shove a HOTU down his/her throat.
This dude ain't Darkseid. He beat the whole of the Marvel universe TWICE.
This ain't even P.C. Superman stuff. Trillion's of tons?
Thanos was destroying 1/2 the universe with the I.G. As a wedding ring..
It wasn't called "The End" for no reason....

Dude, once again, thank you.
I like the cosmic stories, for the most part. I'm starting to get the Annihilation comics. GREAT ART.

Thats the thing about them. Sure they are expensive as gas these day's, but they take me back. I remember having to do laundry by a 7/11 back in the day.
They had some GREAT comics. I picked up the whole Mutant Massacre on the cheap. ****, Juggs, Mr. Sinister, Wolverine (when he wasn't a unkillable) fighting a awesome Sabretooth, Apoc...
I could go on and on.

Red Hulk smacking Uatu the Watcher With a left hook and telling him to shut the **** up:

To be honest i haven't been overly impressed with the red Hulk storyline so far. It's lacking in any real depth and Red Hulk, as badass as he is, reeks of "unstoppable villain" clicheness.

What happened to the Hulk that would turn him red? I haven't been able to follow comics in a while. :(

Red Hulk isn't Bruce Banner - we've yet to find out who he is.

Yes, Sin City is truly excellent as is The 300. His batman stuff is overrated I think.

I'm actually well into comics, to the point where I've started writing my own scripts.

My favourite comics writer is Grant Morrison easily, who I think pisses all over Alan Moore.

His 'The Invisibles' and 'The Filth' are the most impressive bits of writing I've seen in comics, as well as being outrageously sureal and in 'The Filth' incredibly dark.

I love Miller's Batman works.

Apparently the new batman graphic novel is called 'Holy terror Batman' and he is gonna be fighting al quieda.

Frank Miller is quite nicely ****ed up in the head.
Didn't he and Alan Moore fall out or some ****??

Just got into an Amazing Spiderman kick recently. Hated the original comics (only liked Superman Confidential really), hated the films bar the original and I hate his red underwear. But Amazing Spiderman is pure magic. Enchanting, Vibrant, Brilliant, Quarky, Larger-than-life. These descriptors barely do it justice. Buy this book!!!

Red Sonja has been a fav as well lately.

i tried to get into comics but there are so many universes and storylines of the same characters that it just overwhelms my interests. however, i did get into Y: The Last Man. i'm currently on the TPB book 4 that i bought 2 months ago. haven't had the chance to read it yet though.

Marvels current storyline 'Dark Reign' is fantastic.
If you ever wanted to see the badguys take over the world, you'll love this.

Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps right now, with the Blackest Night storyline, it's the best.

They actually weren't violent enough, cause they had to be alright for kids too.
