GENERAL COMIC BOOK THREAD (MANGA NOT ALLOWED)
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:09:33 PM »
Okay, guize. Here we talk about comics. Of any kind(except JAPANESE manga).

What are you guys currently reading?

Well, I for example, am more or less keeping track of Marvel's Dark Reign event. Also, the Transformers series from IDW and Sonic the Hedgehog comic.

Speaking of which, did anyone here read/is reading the Transformers comic? It's pretty awesome, I must say. All Hail Megatron is a great series, and I recommend everyone to read it.

The only Transformers comic I keep looking out for is pretty much anything related to Beast Wars.  Those are the ones that interest me more than anything.

For me, my favorite thing going on in comics right now is Blackest Night from DC.  The whole event has been 5 years in the making, ever since Green Lantern: Rebirth.  GL has been my favorite comics out ever since Rebirth, and it continues to be.  The Flash: Rebirth is also going awesomely as well so far.  Essentially, anything that Geoff Johns is writing, I'm probably collecting.  His run on Superman is easily the best the comic has been in so very very long.  His update of his origin, Superman: Secret Origins, is thus fan brilliant.  Also, Morrison's Batman & Robin is also another one of my favorite comics out now.  I love Damian.  He's [tornado fang]ing awesome.

So it seems like you are more of a DC kind of guy? Well, I'm more into Marvel.

Also, I'm planning to give this whole "Blackest Night" a go. Tough, not now. I have more crap to read.

Also, you should totally check out that Transformers IDW series, maan.

Oh, I haven't liked Marvel for a long time now.  The last thing I read from Marvel was Planet Hulk, which was an excellent series.  I'll eventually pick up Annihilation too.  As for the rest of the Marvel U, I just really haven't gotten into it at all.  Plus, the majority of my favorite characters are in DC and I'm poor.  I will say though that I did keep track of Captain America since Brubaker took over.  I'd venture to say that Brubaker & Johns are the best two writers out there right now.

I've had plenty of Spider-Man comics, including where he's warped to the future (2010 I think.. I have a whole collection in a desk drawer, so I might re-look into that), and a few more, I loved that series (this kinda makes me a Marvel guy, right?).

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

The last time I read a comic book was a few years ago, it was a simpsons comic. I never really read any DC or Marvel comics.

Currently I'm following Green Lantern.  And any tie-in issues pertaining to the Blackest Night storyline.  I'm also reading Flash: Rebirth, Arkham Reborn, Deadpool, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Invasion, and various comics that just happen to catch my fancy that day.

Mostly Sonic the Hedgehog although I had to stop awhile due to bills. -_- I'm not much for majority of comics due to a... well, lack of knowledge for good comics.

Superman #50 (DC) It says December '90

Superman #669 (DC) September '91

Batman #450 (DC) July '90

Armageddon- The Alien Agenda (DC) December '91

Starting back up in the Outsiders series again.  I lost track of it after the "Checkout" storyarc when my local comic shop closed.  Lots track of a number of series I was following that day.

Great series.  That's one of the classics of the comics medium, like having "War and Piece" in your library.

Flash: Rebirth #5 was [tornado fang]ing great.  You know, Geoff Johns is just an amazing writer.  He managed to make a character I wasn't fond of totally awesome!

Indeed!  I'm glad he's back writing Flash again.  For a while, with his absence, it was actually a bit slow.  Then Johns came back and the Flash picked up speed.

Not to mention that I love Wally's new uniform, giving him the Flash emblem from the Justice League series.  Also, he's made Professor Zoom, the Reverse-Flash, more bad-ass than ever before.
