Re: Comic Books

I've been rereading Supreme Power lately, Hyperion has become one of my favorite characters, I love the idea of a Superman type being in the real world.

As well as World War Hulk and Star Wars: Legacy

Re: Comic Books

Didn't read much beyond Archie,Snake Tales (aka The Old Timer) and Footrot Flats as a kid and started reading comics regularly with Batman. Which worked well until the evil buggers in DC set about crossing-over with tedious regularity into Detective.

Eventually the completist in me had me reading Batman, 'Tec, Legends, Shadow, Nightwing, Catwoman, Azrael, Robin and Birds of Prey as well as assorted minis and one-shots.

I finally stopped somehwere around the seemingly endless No Man's Land cycle for a number of reasons but mostly because it wasn't as much fun without Doug Moench and Kelly Jones.

(I also claim partial responsibility for the design of Oracle's wheelchair, but that's another story.)

Re: Comic Books

I read all the old ones because my dad has a gazillion from when he was a kid. So I read Spiderman, Superman, Machine Man, Fantastic Four, Captin America,The Avengers, and more but I can't think of them all of the top of my head.

Has anybody else seen the new pics they let out from Dark Knight? My god this is going to be an awesome movie. It's a good sign when you can tell Heath Ledger is rocking the Joker just from a still picture. I can't wait!!!

I just read Batman: Year One - awesome! It's so much fun to discover all these new stories... I wish I'd started reading them earlier, but better late than never! I just bought The Dark Knight Returns, so I'm looking forward to that. Has anyone read Batman: Gothic? I saw it in the store today, and it sounds pretty cool.

Supreme Power has been pretty good consistently in my opinion. I've liked it a lot. Even the minis, which is surprising...

Re: Comic Books

Let me be the first to say that the new Superman/Doomsday DVD is excellent.

Also has anyone else read the Detective Comics issue with Joker driving around with Robin, Such a fun issue I loved the Joker in it.

And if you haven't its issue 826.

Re: Comic Books

Do the Archie comics count? I love Archie comics, esp. Betty and Veronica double Digest. They're the best!

Re: Comic Books

I love Archie Comics and I have read so many of them. I used to read Phantom comice which I use to like and Mandrake the wizard. We get Tinkle comics and Amar Chitra Katha (if that counts) and I used to read both.

That was a great issue - the Detective comics are great. I'm not so into the Blackest Night arc, well not since Final Crisis because I truly cannot deal with DCU sans Wayne. But hopefully that will be rectified soon enough. So while I continue to collect the Detective/Batman issues, I am less than happy. Some of the stand alone arcs have been pretty cool, like Unseen.

The animations are really good as of late tho, which helps pass the time. Doomsday was pretty good, but the more recent Public Enemies was probably the best thus far. Looking forward to the JL: Crisis on Two Earths, that should rock.

Re: Comic Books

One of the things that eventually stopped me collecting regularly was DC's seeming obsession with mega-crossovers in endless arcs. (The others being putting LotDK into continuity, expanding the Batman related titles to about 10 and the end of the Doug Moench/Kelly Jones partnership.)

That said I have been picking up Batman Reborn. Judging by the previews in the back it looks like DC is going through another period of retooling dead titles to see if they pick up a following.

Re: Comic Books

The Bats expansion was a dream come true back in the day. Of course now... (although even I was rolling on the floor laughing at Blackest Night #5 - good stuff - but I'm still grumpy). Not all of LotDK is continuity - at least not yet, lol.

ETA: w00t. The Return of Bruce Wayne, April 2010...

Re: Comic Books

Finally got around to reading Hush. Has to be one of the best in-continuity comics I've read in a long time (of course it helped that I didn't have to read it spread across a year).

Back in the day LotDK was out of continuity (although it was canon telling stories of Batty's early days) and was printed in prestige format like Vertigo titles with the distinctive bordered covers.

It got caught up in continuity in "Destroyer" but was pretty much just anothet Bat title by "Knightquest".
