Reading Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Frank Miller is great. I know that they all pretty much follow the same plot of revenge but that doesn't stop the books from being really good reads.

Among my usual purchases today I bought Frank Miller's new Batman & Robin comic issue 1, and the first issue of Serenity. Looking forward to reading them.

And the latest issue of Walking dead out today too - brilliant as usual.

Give us a capsule review when you've read em. I'll probably wait for the TPBs though, I can't keep up with individual issues any more.

Just read the GLA: Misassembled (Great lakesAvengers) very funny, great spoof on the whole superteam genre and Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe is just genius.

Before that I read Deadpool & Cable which is worth reading just for Deadpool's quips.

I got 'Scott Pilgrim's precious little life' yesterday. its quite funny.

I like it.

In a fit of nostalgia I bought 35 issues of Crisis and 22 of Hate off ebay for a combined price of around 25 quids including P & P.

Of course, I once had complete sets of both before throwing them out. And Deadline.

I am idiot.

Hmmm..Batman & Robin is OK. The first issue seems to centre more around Vicki Vale (who looks like a Playboy model) who has her first meet with Bruce Wayne. Batman himself only appears on 1 page! But he does look very Dark Knight in it

You fool man. I got 60 for issue 1 (or is it 2) with first appearance on Tank Girl. The magazine was great if only for the Jamie Hewlett covers.

Everything Hewlett put his hand to was pretty damn great. With the exception of post-Martin Tank Girl. They were awful.

I've just googled that, something about the title caught my interest. Thanks for the heads up, I now want to buy these.

Are you familliar with Pete Loveday's stuff or the Furry FreakBrothers or are you more into the Superhero pastiche elements of Northern Lightz?

Kinda know the guys that write it, that was their last issue of Northern Lightz. A whole gang of writers/artists/comic dudes meet up in Glasgow on the first Wed of every months. Alan Moore sometimes comes along. In fact theres a new Superman strip getting done through in Edinburgh just now (s'ppose to be good ig your into that kinda thing).

I'm more into anything that (ahem) expands my ways of perceiving the universe. So it ranges from comics to philosophy, intoxication to good food, reading to coding. There was a good comic called Electric Soup out a few years back, you might like that if your into the whole counter comic culture.

Don't know much about Pete Loveday as yet but will look into it. I'm reading Warren Ellis: Planetary just now, thats great, it has a very dark twist on popular comic culture, has a foreword by Joss Whedon applauding it too.

take it easy

Sean of the Dead
I finished Watchmen yesterday. Wow. 'Twas incredible, I really enjoyed it. I'm really intrested in how Rorschach and Dr. Manhatten will be portrayed in the movie.

And I'm definitely getting V for Vendetta at the weekend now.

I used to read my brother's and I'm not brave enough to go to the comic book shop. I just buy 'graphic novels' from amazon. I love the Sandman series and The Invisibles and I wept when I read Maus. I've now got Blue Monday, V for Vendetta, Jack Staff and Ghost World lined up in amazon - any more recommendations?
super_horse
I know it doesnt really class as a comic but i'm in the middle fo reading 'Alan Moore: Portrait of an extraodinary gentleman' its really good so far, its a collection from loads of comic book writers/artists and it gives a very interesting inside view of the comic industry.

Have got all but one issue of Top 10. So I read the first 3 and never got round to getting issue 4 so I could read the rest. Should get off my fat arse and get it, because up to that point it was one of my fave Moore comics.
rebelstar
Just read the Hellboy 2 parter The Island - 'twas good. And now I'm starting the first two volumes of The Losers, which I've had sitting around for ages and haven't got round to.

Isn't there another one where he lands in England? That one's meant to be really good as well.

Reading the TokyoPop Sneaks books that I got free at Memorabilia. Trying to save the Love Hina and Chobits until I go on holiday.

The sneaks book is great - little snippits of manga comics. I now have a long list of manga to buy!

and Monty Python cast member John Cleese. That is indeed the one I was thinking about. It got a very good write up when it was released and I've meant to get a copy for a while. Manybe I'll get Red Son first though.

I notice SFX have a review of an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere this month - does anyone know if there are any plans for this to be issued in one volume at a later date?
Amazongirl

Sean of the Dead
Picked up Batman:Officer Down from the school library today, hope to give it a flick through tonight.

IDW is becoming one of my fave comic publishers.
Not only are they doing Shaun Of The Dead (issue 3 picked up today) and Angel comics, but also bought Shadowplay written by Amber Benson, and Spike and The Keep comics are on the way too.
Injektilo
Well, just got the Sin City DVD/comic boxset, so I'll be reading The Hard Goodbye, Big Fat Kill and That Yellow Bastard tonight!
Sean of the Dead
Picked up Swamp Thing by the mighty Alan Moore from the library today.

also my old copies of young justice (tease me about liking that series and i cant really do anything, but yeah) and x-men. personally i like pheonix better than jean.
Jubei
Has anyone read 'The Walking Dead'? Its a really good comic series, I've read the first three volumes so far. The second one includes a nice article by Simon Pegg at the end as well.

Also, has anyone read Techjacket? Looks quite interesting but I haven't got round to purchasing it yet.

Both are by Robert Kirkman.
