For Christmas I finally got some Hellblazer - why I've never read this before is beyond me. I mean, the guy is a chain-smoking alcoholic, tail-chasing Londoner who has a habit of making his life worse with each passing moment. I sympathise, and yet can't help but castigate.

Also, the Sleeze Brothers, an old Marvel UK title from the time of Death's Head and Dragon's Claws. Very funny.

Oh, and more Invisibles. Pure genius.

Where on Earth (or equivalent in a parallel universe) did you manage to find the Sleeze Brothers? I had my original copies until a few years ago, along with the first UK runs of Dragon's Claws and Death's Head - have they been quietly re-released as trade paperbacks at all? You can, of course, see Death's Head's Transformers debut in the Transformers graphic novels which are out. Might even be able to sort you a good head shot for your avatar. For the right price, yes? cool.gif

Just finished Liberty Meadows 2 - Creature Comforts which I got for Christmas. Great stuff. Now I am ploughing through my boyfriend's PVP collection.

All the Dreamwave Transformers stuff, along with Devil`s Due`s take on GI Joe/Transformers. Not a bad crossover, if a little facile. Still, it`s very readable.

And DDP`s ongoing GI Joe series, a franchise I`m finding myself fall in love with again, after a long time having forgotten about it.

At the moment I'm reading Joss Wheadon's X-men series. It kicks much ass as they say.

Not a fan of superhero comics and stuff with muscles and guns, it's all a little too homo-erotic. I like most of what Jhonen Vasquez has done, 'Beg The Question' by Bob Fingerman is an amazing graphic novel (that started out as comic 'minimum wage') and also Bear by Jamie Smart makes me chuckle.
And 'The Pro' by some guy i cant remember, a hysterical dissection of superhero comics with a prostitute-turned-superhero.

be sure to check out www.lickmyjesus.com their comics are hilarious

anyways...

Does anyone here remember Starblazers? They were small "Commando comic book" sized comics that had about 65 pages, they ran for 10 years and featured Sci Fi and Fantasy storylines.

I've got a complete set of them from 1979-89. The gem has got to be though that this is where Grant Morrison got his first work, and I've got the relevant issues signed by him.

I'm also collecting the Trigan Empire. These were first printed in Ranger, then Look and Learn magazine.

Imagine a world with empires that parallell the Romans, the Byzantines and others, then add in some Flash Gordon style retro tech.

If you're curious check this site out.

For about 10 years I lived and breathed 2000AD. But I grew up, comic got crap or whatever and stopped reading it....

I parted company at around the time of the Judge Dredd 'Dead Man' story. I've read a few graphic novels since, like the classic 'Apocalypse War' but the magic isn't there any more... Have I become too cynical???

I gave up 2000AD years ago as well, round about the time they introduced the Halo Jones character. I remember some of the classics like the introduction of the Dark Judges, and the aforementioned Apocalypse War with Block Mania preceding it.

I was also fond of the first Rogue Trooper series before it got a bit strange, and even the VC's. I've been hoping for a reprint of that but it seems I won't see it. Also, stories like the ABC Warriors and even Strontium Dog were more my liking.

Agreed. Beg The Question is brilliant. One of my favourite comics of all time.
And "The Pro" was written by Garth Ennis, I believe. Which figures...

i used to be a big x-men comic fan, collected most of the comics for around 3 years, then ran out of money and haven't picked it up again. went into a comic shop the other day, read one and went 'what the fuck is going on?' not reading them for about 5 years means you miss a lot!
i stopped reading after the onslaught crossover (which rocked) - can anyone bring me up to speed in a concise yet informative manner?
