Nearly finished the Sandman - Endless Nights. I loved Despair and Delerium. In fact, I think I love Neil Gaiman.

Picked up the latest issue of Tozzer2 at Memorabilia last weekend and have read that. Very short, but I likes it.

Lots and lots of Dredd. It still knocks the crap out of most US stuff.

Most recent one i read was the simpsons-futurama crossover comic, though i didn't get the second half so i don't know how it ended sad.gif

I also read Akira, volume 1 if that counts (more graphic novel than comic) and i read it for free in a Borders cos they have all of them on a shelf! Just a few more visits and the whole story will have unfolded

Word. I picked up all the Johnnys and the I Feel Sicks. I'm still waiting for Roman Dirge to put out the latest Lenore. And when is Rob Fingerman going to do another book. I loved Minimum Wage and I want some more from him (White Like She wasn't all that good).

I'm reading Love & Rockets, The Losers, Hellblazer, Walking Dead and Sleeper at the mo. The other book which deserves a special mention is Garth Ennis's 303. Anyone else reading it? It's fantastic.

I'm a fan of the old Dredd stuff. I've still got fond memories of Block Mania and the Apocalypse War as well as The Cursed Earth.

Talking of 2000AD publication, does anyone republish the original Rogue Trooper stories right from the beginning?

Not as far as I know, but I think they bring out old stories from time to time in tpb and in 2000ad monthly.

In trade paperback form would be good, I really enjoyed the old Rogue Trooper stuff, although it was very much a series 'of its time'.

I'd also like to know if "The VC's" are reprinted, I've got the old Titan reprint of volume 1, but I can't find volume 2 for love nor money.

this is sort of a spin off from the 'films to avoid' topic were i talked about the Constantine movie and Hellblazer comics. I just wondered if theres anyone else into the graphic artform and if so u can talk about the oldies, new stuff, crap stuff and good stuff.

P.S sorry if there is another thread like this but i couldnt see one

I suppose i should start then, keep it simple whats the last comic book you read, and was it any good?

Mine was issue 2# of 'Living with Zombies' By Matthew Billman and Christopher Herndon and is setting out to be a pretty cool series

There are too many selecting only one for me but here's a brief overview of some of my favourites:

Dark Knight Returns - Having dropped the mantle for 20 years Bruce Wayne is living a reckless and troubling life. Batman has become an urban myth and crime is on the increase. A mysterious goverment agent who appears to be faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive lurks behind the story. Harvey Dent (2 face) has been cured by large donations from the Wayne Corporation and is due to enter into society again. As ever the Joker and all the usual suspects are about. Brilliant, Tom Selleck must play him if it ever gets filmilised. Book 2 though is shite.

Plantery- Written partly by Warren Ellis this trio of unusual archeologists investigate a reality where fiction appears to sneak in occasionally - not that the public ever know about it, due to the 4. Ongoing stories but as with everything good, you can pick up any story and have a thouroughly good read without any prior knowledge.

The Button Men- A story that appeared in 2000AD back in about 91'. A man returns from his army days. There are no jobs for him and nothing to his life. He is offered a load of money by a wealthy doctor to go to a field. There he finds a gun. Seconds later he is being shot at by two others. He, and others like him, are now pawns in a game set up by the elite of society.

There are loads of others too like Jonny Alpha, Rogue Trooper, ABC Warriors, Sinister and Dexter and of course Durham Red - She had an excellent story where she had to kill a future version of herself that had gone mad!!

Year One, Preacher and The Invisibles are also good. And the full Akira Series are great if you have a month to kill.

I'm up for any suggestions as what to read and await with baited breath.
