Title: What comic book are you reading?
Post by: Nighteyes on November 05, 2015, 09:53:35 PM
Just finished Asterix and the Missing Scroll. I didn't realise the series was still being written. Snorted a few times.

I still have not finished Ape Sapiens and Hellboy in Hell keeps looking at me expectingly.

I also have Knights of the Old Republic on top of my reading pile again.

I'm reading Death Vigil by Stjepan Sejic and I cannot recommend it enough. Fantastic!
"Gifted? Join the Death Vigil in their ongoing war against the ever-growing power of the Primordial Enemy! Only catch is you have to die first. Become a corporeal immortal Death Knight and obtain reality-altering weaponry in the never-ending battle between good and evil."

Also, thoroughly enjoyed Rat Queens volumes 1 and 2 recently.
"Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they're in the business of killing all god's creatures for profit. It's also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. "

I've just finished Darth Vader, an on-going modern series that kicks some butt, and shows Vader's adventures to inquire after Luke between episode 4 and 5.

I've recently finished Batman: Dark Victory and Batman: Cataclysm. Batman is the only "superhero" series I'm interested in, basically because he's isn't a superhero (i.e. human who some fluke of nature is enhanced by some supercharged somethingorother). Earlier I somewhat enjoyed "The Woods" by Tyrion/Dialynas, but I fear it might be somewhat too YA further on. Also enjoyed "Wytches" by Snyder/Jock.

Oh, I totally agree. I don't care for any superheroes, but Batman is the notable exception of being the only one that can get me interested in a story with him.

That's also what I like about Hellboy. He's not actually a superhero, he just looks a bit like one. But the stories are completely different.

That's unfair. There are loads of interesting superhero. Daredevil, who is blind, is a hero by day as well as a lawyer defending the less fortunate, and lives in the impoverished Hell Kitchen. Frank Miller has written some amazing runs about him. Animalman, who stands for animal rights and the environment, but also has his own family and has starred in a seminal run by Grant Morrison. I think also the Hulk is fascinating in the right hands - a modern day Jekyl and Hyde.

Okay guys I also was only interested in Batman but I read Hawkeye: Volume 1 by Matt Fraction and it's one of the best comics I've read, that whole series is fantastic and i haven't got anywhere near going through them yet. You might think why would a comic about Hawkeye be interesting but the great idea they take is that he's not being a superhero in it, the comic is when he's not working with the avengers - he's saving stray dogs, helping neighbours with rent from gangsters, and all other problems he accidentally gets himself into, it's also very funny.

I also recommend Daredevil and the current Ms Marvel with Kamala Khan who is great. And since the Netflix series is about to start, I am desperate to read more of Alias, the comic Jessica Jones stars in. Easily one of the most gripping and original takes on a superhero with a noir/detective feel.

OK, I'll give you Daredevil. I watched the series on Netflix and it wasn't all bad. Same with (Green?) Arrow but they are not "superheroes" according to my own definition. As far as comics go I've never really been into others. Tried Green Latern in the wake of the movie, but not for me ...

Funny you should mention Green Arrow and Green Lantern in the same post.
You need to go in the way-back machine and find the Neil Adams series for a combined GL/GA comic book in the 1970s. Wonderful art and fun stories about American culture at the time. GL and GA, two friends and comrades from way back, take two very different views of politics, culture, etc.

Not at all the GA or GL you see in the TV show/movie.

I have never really got the appeal of Green Arrow.Sounds rather Batmanlite, but one day when UK netflixs gets the rights, I'll give the tv show a go. Green Lantern at its best should be epic space opera surely? Haven't read much GL, but can see the appeal.

Seconded! Matt Fraction's Hawkeye is my favorite Hawkeye. The stories are fun but the dialogue is the best. I've only read the first trade so far (first five issues + bonus) but I will be picking up the next few, once I have some money in my comic budget.

I just hope every future issues starts with "Okay, this looks bad..."

A Snowden stand in character and a satire on Snowden. Def as good as the originals. Asterix is big in Germany I noticed!

From my understanding, Amazon doesn't sell single issue comics (just volumes that combine multiple issues like the Saga volumes), so you'll likely have to order from a Comic store. It's worth hunting down, imho. :)

I also know the first printing sold out right away, but there was a second printing this month. Not sure where that one stands (if it sold out as quick as the first)

I am reading the Tales of the Jedi comics a second time. And turns out my memory completely decieved me. I thought the earlier ones were better before they changed writer, but looking at them all again now, the early ones were just really terrible. Once the first storyline was wrapped up and the new writer started his very own, it becomes sooo much better. Still not great, but not anywhere as terrible as before.

Had a comic book day thanks in part to an Ed Brubaker/Sean Phillips sale on Comixology.

I read the excellent and hilarious Kaptara Vol 1: Fear Not, Tiny Alien by Chip Zdarsky and Kagan MacLeod, which was really enjoyable and very funny. Surprised at the lack of high ratings on Goodreads though, perhaps not in taste for everyone as it is utterly bonkers but I thought it was great.

The Fade Out Vol 1 & 2 by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips is so so good! Such a page turner, unique take on a noir that really delves deep into the character's in a fascinating and entertaining way. I sped through both volumes and was annoyed when it suddenly ended. Which led me to also buying the first volume of Fatale, but I'll save that for another day. :D

Having voraciously devoured Brian K Vaughan's Saga (the volumes thus far, at any rate), I was intrigued by his previous work on Y: The Last Man. It has far more overt pop-culture references than Saga but it's handled deftly and I quite like the unique direction he takes the narrative in. It's also a less than subtle sledgehammer against certain vocal extremists on both sides of the fence politically and otherwise. Looking forward to reading more.

Read Velvet, Volume Two: The Secret Lives of Dead Men by Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting & Elizabeth Breitweiser.

Since it was ages ago since I had read the first volume I re-read that first to remind myself, and I'm very glad I did. A really brilliant spy thriller, feels like what James Bond could be, and someone skilled could make amazing films from these.

Velvet is a mo-fo bad ass. Highly recommended for some spy type thrilling.

I'm now on to Lone Wolf & Cub Omnibus 4...

Been wanting to start that one. I enjoyed it's cinematic incarnation and influences "Shogun Assassin," "Road to Perdition" (haven't read the comic), "The Road" (book and film), and I guess "El Topo" can be seen as a spin on that theme.

Lone Wolf & Cub is good.  There's like 12 omnibuses of around 700 pages each though, so it's a hefty read.

Akira is interesting.  Way different from the movie -- understandable since there's so much more to it.  Someone should adapt it properly into a mini-series some day.

Just read the Prometheus: Fire and Stone collection, and I've gotta say....the scientists in it are just as stupid as the ones in the movie.  Sigh.

Also read Beautiful Darkness (by Fabian Vehlmann), which was creepy, and Lazarus (by Greg Rucka), which is an interesting sort of post-apocalyptic controlled-by-powerful-families story.  Reminds me a bit of Day Men, but with normal humans, not vampires.  Also-also read volume 1 of Pretty Deadly, by Kelly Sue DeConnick, which felt like a super-long intro but was nevertheless intriguing.  Death's daughter rampaging through a mysticism/fairytale-touched Wild West.

Poured through the third volume of Jessica Jones: Alias and it was great as usual.

Now onto reading a classic, DC: The New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke, it is so, so, so, so good. The art is glorious and  I love the setting and the story construction.

Finished The Fade Out by Brubaker/Phillips/Breitweiser. Another completely excellent noir crime story by them, perhaps not the best ending ever, but one that felt melancholic and very human, and quite bitter.

And their new one came out today too :D

Saga: Volume Six
YO IT'S SO GOOD THO HOLY ****

And the new issue of the new arc is out in a couple of days!

Oh and I recently read the first issue's of the new Brubaker/Phillips/Breitweiser Kill or Be Killed and The Black Monday Murders by Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker.

Kill or Be Killed is a really interesting and as ever brilliantly created story, a new take on the revenge thriller and I'm looking forward to seeing where they take this.

Black Monday Murders is completely fascinating, a killer of an idea and concept, and the bumper first issue felt a little like all setup plot and no character (though from what I hear that can be a criticism levied against Hickman in general), so I am really interesting in the very deep, complex and wordy story they're building here, and where it's all going. A truly striking and gorgeously presented comic too.

Ouch.  Does your library have comment cards or comment-by-email?  Graphic novels being a pretty big thing these days, they're missing out on a large slice of potential circulation.  My library system has kids, teen and adult graphic novel sections (all in different areas), plus manga, plus a ton of digital comics through Hoopla, and they're constantly in use.  A lot of libraries accept purchase suggestions from patrons too.

Funny enough, my library used to have it randomly over by like cookbooks or something strange (but was near the SFF section). When I went the last time, I kept wondering around, trying to find it. Turns out they moved it to where the middle grade books are. Yeah. Saga is just what the thing for them!

(my library does have Saga, but evidently not much else. At least not on my list of what to read.)

It's fucked up crazy, like a wild monster story made just to showcase his crazy cool drawing style. A god-warrior's soul stuck in a scarecrow, wielding a huge ass divine sword against the monsters left over from ancient times, in the middle of some dingy human town. Awesome sauce.

I was on a training course last week (and got certification to distribute pesticides, among other things) and got an opportunity to read the first three volumes of Hellsing from my roommate.

After all the hype over all those years, I found it to be actually really disappointing. There are some interesting character designs (Integra, Seras, Bernadotte) but they have no real personality of any kind. And those faint traces of a narrative that stand in for a plot are really light weight. At least for the first three volumes the content is really all just violence and gore action scenes with little rhyme or reason to them.

And this comes from someone who considers Evangelion and Elfen Lied to have surprisingly complex depth and fascinating characterization.

Armies of ghouls in ballistic armor with sub machine guns kick ass, though.

For the last couple of years I have been using this site www.cmro.travis-starnes.com, Marvel Unlimited and various minor purchases to read Marvel comics in chronological order from Fantastic Four 1.  I quickly reduced the pull list to just core books, so I read FF, Hulk, Avengers, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, all Spidey titles, all X Men related titles (Except Dazzler...jeez), and I dip in and out of all the others depending on interest.

It's been an interesting experience, a lot of it in the beginning is almost unreadable...and the classics are classics for the reason.  While I've found the odd issue that shines, most that stand out any average Marvel fan would have heard of FF 48-50 (The coming of Galactus), Death of Gwen Stacy, The Skrull-Kree war, etc.

I've recently just finished the Secret Wars story from 84 and now well into the Mid-80's and the quality is soaring, you can clearly see why it is the golden era of Marvel.  I've just finished Miller's run on Daredevil, which I had read before, and well into Claremont's X Men era (Rachel Summers has just turned up) but stuff I haven't read before, the black suit saga for Spiderman, John Byrne's Fantastic Four, Walt Simonson's Thor run, drunken Tony Stark...its all great.  The art is just starting to modernise, some is still outdated but some real standouts, like the art on New Mutants Demon Bear arc. 

For the first time reading is a genuine pleasure rather than the hard slog it felt like in the mid-70's, there are some truly terrible books in the first two decades of Marvel, and shock horror Stan Lee was not that great.

I'll make some recommendations as I head towards the 90's.

@DaveEllis , a very interesting post. Having read many of those when they first came out, especially late '60s-early '80s, I think my perception would be misted by the age I was and the sense of nostalgia. Cool to hear the view of someone basically new to them and with more modern media as a framework.

There was an issue of Son of Fu Manchu (not a core book) in which nothing happens except the hero and his girlfriend relaxing and making out between adventures. There was almost no dialogue or none, and the panels were "narrated" with lyrics from the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumors. I listened to Rumors again the other day and found I was bored stiff. But at that age, the issue was some of awesome.

How time changes things.

I grew up on the 90's cartoons but never had access to a decent comic shop or the money to read consistently.  Marvel Unlimited is a godsend, although it does have some annoying gaps in the main runs, Daredevil stops when Miller does and then comes back when Miller does, haha. 

I knew going in that the 60's and 70's was going to be more for kids, and simplified.  What I wasn't prepared for was the sexism and the racism.  The former just in the treatment of the women and the love interests, I'd argue its not till Claremont takes over X Men do you actually get a proper female character with her own agency, at least beyond swooning at men (Wasp) or being wifey (Invisible Girl - she doesn't even become Invisible Woman for twenty years) The racism is trying to tackle it, I guess, but some of the terms and language thrown about in a kids comic is downright shocking in the 70's.

I think coming from a more modern sensibility of arcs, crossovers and the lack of the need to describe every singe action, (cos you know...pictures!!)  has coloured my perceptions, which is probably why the 80's are more enjoyable as you get long form stories, better art and more interesting stories.  The biggest change is when Walt Simonson takes over Thor...he still does all the olde worlde language, still has Loki scheming and Odin being an ass...but somehow it just works where before it was just dead boring.

I could go on...maybe I'll write a blog about it.

Meanwhile in comics, I recently finished Exlibrium by Natalya Devova (interesting ideas -- wizards who track down rogue literary characters -- but a mediocre translation), Welcome Back v.1 by Christopher Sebela (again, interesting -- constantly reincarnating destined-enemy assassins, IN LOVE! -- but I don't know if I'm hooked), and The Witcher: House of Glass, by Paul Tobin, which despite never having played The Witcher, I really enjoyed.

Finally read Arkham Asylum by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Dave McKean.  One of those graphic novels that you need to read twice to appreciate and read the script by Grant Morrison. I love Dave McKean's illustrations, he is a unique talent.

Then my first proper fantasy read in a while. The first two volumes of Geis by Alexis Deacon.  Thoroughly recommend to all fantasy fans - even if you don't usually read comics.  A chief matriarch dies leaving no heir and a contest begins to decide the new ruler. Except the matriarch has made a deal with an evil sorceress that uses death magic and all 50 claimants now are bound by geis into a contest where the sorceress will claim all their lives except the winner. It is set in a beautiful fantasy world with some awesome characters and concepts.

I started Yu-Gi-Oh last week since I watched it as a kid and was always bothered how the anime NEVER followed any rules, the beginning was much darker, yugi and joey at least killed 2 people, than when the duel monsters part started I felt like reading and couldn´t believe it, the author is so inconsistent, in the same 20 page chapter where he explained the rules for the 3rd time, he made so So SO many mistakes, like people taking 3 turns at once, never attacking directly, overall tactical nonsense, yugi should´ve lost the first duel in the first tournament according to the rules. I discarded it imideatly because it´s even worse and more illogical and inconsistent than the anime ever was. Now I want to focus again more on books. again

Sabrina by Nick Drnaso.  A very worthy nomination for the Booker Prize, and a very powerful read.  Highly recommended, and I hope it wins and gains more recognition for Graphic Novels.

I've just finished Wytches by Scott Snyder and Jock. Creepy and disturbing, and best of all it makes me think back to my own childhood adventures in the woods.

Not actually comics books, but I found some great fantasy webtoons that are really quite amazing reads (some even have decent worldbuilding, which is pretty rare comics-wise)

Tower of God (fantasy in a unique world): https://www.webtoons.com/en/fantasy/tower-of-god/list?title_no=95&page=1

unOrdinary (Superhero-ish): https://www.webtoons.com/en/fantasy/unordinary/list?title_no=679

Dice (Powers, battle royale): https://www.webtoons.com/en/fantasy/dice/list?title_no=64
