I just picked up All Star Batman #1. The art for Two-Face is fucking amazing. I liked the twist of Alfred having such a big secret that he was willing to betray Bruce to To-Face in order to keep it hidden. I wonder what skeletons are in Alfie's closet...

I've been digging Green Arrow's Rebirth series, so I went back to some old school GA books. First I read Longbow Hunters, now I'm getting into the famous Green Lantern - Green Arrow series, where they team up literally just for being green. The premise is that Ollie takes Hal on an SJW road trip of America to fight fat businessmen who abuse poor people. Preachy out the ass but that what Green Arrow is all about anyways.

If your going to read Rebirth, I suggest reading Longbow Hunters and then The Fear Machine to get acquainted with Ollie's current teammates and their origin stories.

it seems like we got less than a fourth of the backstory here though. it just makes me even more curious. she admits she can't tell everything, and it's obvious we're getting the the broadest of broad-strokes after listening to her story. that line about the information we didn't hear potentially "ruining" bam was especially ominous. she didn't explain the significance of his name either, I have a vague feeling that "the 25th night" means something sinister.

Let's say Marvel hires you tomorrow to fix the X-Men. (think DC Rebirth in response to the New 52)

In the current world of Marvel comics
  • Where should the X-Men -- and mutants -- be in the greater Marvel landscape? Any big picture ideas?
  • How many books (solo & team) should there be?
  • How many teams should there be in-universe?
  • What kind of writers / artists would you be hiring?

luckily it wasn't a writer inserting shit so the storyline and characters weren't effected, and the outrage is entirely centered on the penciler who inserted the imagery. it can be digitally removed very easily too, and they can always get a new penciler of equal or greater skill.

Funny enough, the creator of Kamala Kahn was fuckin PISSED about this. She ripped into the guy on Twitter, was glad his career is toast.
He already drew for the next issue or two, but they had always planned to have a rotating team of artists, so I guess they can easily remove him without disrupting the series. (Unlike Doom Patrol, which is on hiatus because the artist is supposedly still drawing it)

But you know, I'm starting to think my copy of X-Men Gold #1 will be a pretty decent collectors item one day. Could net me some good money.

What if the x-men were lame all along and it's really the inhumans who were cool?

Seriously though, I find most of marvel impenetrable. So my call would be to tell smaller stories that require no understanding of the universe or limited series free from continuity. But I'd do the something with every Marvel character.

Eh, I think they're about even. Need to wait for the first arcs to end to render that kind of judgement.

Weapon X was average, but I am interested in that new character they're bringing in. I'm guessing it's a new 616 version of Jimmy Hudson (Wolverine's son in the Ultimate universe)
It's kinda fucking stupid though, we don't need all these fucking Wolverines. Nobody wants all these Wolverines. They just want normal fucking Logan. The only reason people like X-23 is because of all the character development she had BEFORE she inexplicably decided to just be Wolverine instead of her own person.

Fucks sake, if youre gonna kill off a character, even temporarily, stick with it. Don't cop-out by making some other character randomly decide to be their successor and/or shitting out a pile of knockoff, dollar store versions of that character.

So i read this weird manga many years ago and I've never been able to figure out what it was. I remember a few things, a convenience store robbery with a clerk watching porn, giant wresters with naked women climbing all over them, a character that grabs a censor bar and breaks it revealing an entire 2 pages worth of a close up set of boobs. No idea on title or anything. Any suggestions?

I figure One Piece will be put under the spotlight now that Naruto is officially over. I was curious as to how many people in /616/ keep up with One Piece. Hopefully this thread will reach the limit like the Naruto thread did. If not, then no big deal. One Piece was being brought up in the Naruto general, as well as the party thread.

If you haven't fucked with it before, it's a pretty solid manga. The fights aren't really memorable, but the characters make up for everything. And SOME of the films were surprisingly good, unlike the Naruto films. However, reading One Piece is a terrible chore to do until Water 7 arc. Alabasta and Skypiea arc were ridiculously long and boring. I promise you that you'll be rewarded for your efforts once you reach Water 7.

Supposedly the manga is at a really good part, but I haven't read it since Sabo ate the Mera Mera no Mi. But I promised myself that I was marathon these chapters once the semester is over.

It wasn't that great until the end. I honestly don't remember if he has ever said it before, but Luffy putting aside his own dream is big. Wonder what is Luffy going to do once he discovers they've got Zeff and Sanji's hands hostage. Considering how dumb this manga gets at certain times, it's possible Judge himself or even one of the Vinsmoke kids is going to directly tell him the situation just because.

Need help guys!

I was never a fan of comics, i've only finished Sandman(wich is really fucking awesome) and some indie shit that i dont remember the name, but then the other day i stumbled into this marvelous mother fucker, and i've simply loved it, read all the issues and then "Elves" from the same universe, and i desperately need more.

Gotta admit, it was the first time google has let me down, searched for hours and didn't find something like that.

What im looking for exactly is this level of art (graphics? im not an expert), and the medieval fantasy setting (dwarves, elves, orcs, the whole pack)

I even asked this to two friends of mine who love comics, but to no avail. Help me out bros, please!

PS: not sure if i can make such a request in this board, but since i've seen nothing in the rules, im assuming it's good to go.

Ooh, recommend thread? I'll give it a shot.

Cerebus The Aardvark, by Dave Sim. 300 issues, culminating in the character's death, was the idea he started with, and he gets kudos for completing the mission, even if he completely lost his mind before the end. Started off as a Conan parody, moved into satire and gorgeous artwork, solid paced storytelling, shot off in some weird directions as the author's sanity started to show cracks.


Vinland Saga.

Bone. High fantasy, with protagonists from the wrong genre. Kind of like if Pogo Possum wandered into Lord Of The Rings, or Cheech Wizard was switched with Thomas Covenant.

Poison Elves.

Den (Richard Corben). Big bald naked guy kicking lizardmen with his cock and balls flapping about. Den kicks lizardmen and fucks their bitches, doesn't wear pants, what's not to like?

Hal Foster's original run on Prince Valiant.

It's a comic from Hong Kong based loosely on Chinese myth or history or something. Be warned; it's over 100 issues. That put me off reading past the opening arc, but that still left a stronger impression than anything else I could name. Maybe I'll man up and try again someday.

RIP old thread.

So, the theory to Alpha's identity was wrong, but that was a pretty good issue. I especially liked one of the entries in the Letter Hacks.

So, that was some drama for nothing with with Gregory (probably?).
That was some pretty crazy shit with the Whisperers... Did Dante say... THOUSANDS? There's no way. No fucking way.
Did anyone else assume Lydia is a liar and manipulator?
They call their leader Alpha, their leader makes her own daughter call her Alpha, maybe rape is a common thing there, and Alpha is fucking nuts and just lets her daughter get raped because if she isn't good enough to get them off her back, she's just too beta?
That ending page with Carl was awesome and him going on an epic quest is also fucking awesome.

Where the fuck is Michonne?

Yeah, the Saviors might say fuck off and gun Negan down. But there's no way this shit ends without some follow up between Carl and Negan's relationship. Maybe Negan DOES turn on them and Carl makes good on his desire to kill him. Don't see it though. I think Negan has bought into the leadership of Rick and they're heading to Ohio with the forces they have with Negan as their greatest warrior. But Kirkman could surprise us, sometimes he goes for shock over good writing... or, what I think is good writing anyway.
I dunno how many of you guys follow Here's Negan, but if you saw what I saw him do in just these latest four pages, he wasn't lying... toughest son of a bitch left alive.

This, Marvel has been shitty with only the occasional good arch or miniseries since the mid 90s. That is also when comics stopped looking like comics and instead became a mess of gradients and poor coloring choices vomited out by photoshop. The art styles also changed from slightly exaggerated and stylized fine arts figure drawing to crosshatched cartoons without bones, thanks to Liefeld, McFarlane and Jim Lee's popularity. I know Kirby and Ditko were wonky at times but after that you had technically excellent guys like John Buscema, Neal Adams, John Byrne and Romita Sr run the show and dictate what to aim for.

Giving Spiderman to Sony was probably even worse. Those movies were successful even before the capeshit craze took off.

I don't think bringing the original characters back will help much if they still keep the shitty writers around and keep the new legacy characters in the books to stink them up.

Jesus, do people really still read this shit? Out of what, nostalgia?
Is Erik Larsen losing his shit like Frank Miller and Wally Wood did, or does he just not care anymore?

I stopped reading Dragon when he realised he could draw the regular book in his 24 hour comic style and people would still buy it.
Also the way he'd kill his female characters for shock value was starting to feel a bit Women In Fridges John Byrne creepy misogynist.
Plus his whole fight with Peter David made him look like an angry German kid freaking out while playing Call Of Duty.

But seriously, this is his dream job, supporting himself making the comic he created when he was a kid, if that doesn't float his boat enough to occasionally bother drawing a fucking background, or a fight that isn't a page of PUNCH PUNCH PUNCH panels, man, you need to try something new. Start a ministry, or become a tuna fisherman, or go to clown college.

See, it all started when Todd McFarlane challenged Peter David to a public debate over whether comics needed writers, which he lost, predictably, as McFarlane can barely string two words together, and had admitted to never reading books.

Erik Larsen tends to go crazy if anyone messes with his husbandu Todd, so he published a four page rant in Savage Dragon's letters page that, after you remove all the insults and repetition, boiled down to
A. He didn't think it was fair that Peter David brought notes to the debate, which he likened to bringing a gun to a knife fight,
B. He didn't like how PD had referred to the Image founders as "tykes", which he took as an attack on his MANHOOD as a husband and father, and
C. That Peter David was a plagiarist, BUT he neglected to specify what David was supposed to have plagiarised.

PD's response was to ask what he was supposed to have stolen, and Larsen wrote another four page rant, which, minus the insults and repetition, was basically NO. PD's response was more or less "No, really, what?", and Larsen writes ANOTHER four page REEEEE which, minus the insults and repetition, boiled down, was that Peter David had stolen a line of dialogue from Return Of The Sinister Six, about The Hulk "giving someone the finger" by flicking them unconscious with one finger. At which point Peter David was all "That's it, I'm talking to a retard, I'm outie." Not in so many words.

Afterwards Erik Larsen drew Peter David in Savage Dragon standing on a pile of shit, drew Peter David surrounded by flies being rude at a restaurant, and probably other crap I don't know because I stopped reading by then.

I think he also took shots at Neil Gaiman over the Angela and Miracleman lawsuits. I wish Todd and Erik would stop lying to themselves and their fans, divorce their beards, and go get married in Canada.

I think in the end Erik Larsen was reduced to calling Peter David a "Fat, overweight, balding ESSAYIST".

Stay classy, Erik.

His art always looked like when he inked it himself. He holds the pen in a really funky way and does not bother with details. He is one of those pencillers that need a really tight inker who isn't afraid to fill in details and add to the pencils instead of just taking away from them. Larsen's panel design and dynamic poses is what used to make his art palatable but he's slipping on all fronts.
