The thread that lasted for over a year got 404'd, so I had to make a new one.

http://www.mangahere.co/manga/berserk/ - Never read it? Check it out, you won't regret it. But Dark Horse translation is superior because "fan translated hawks scans are famously bad and try waaaaay too hard to make it more edgy than it already is." - /mtv/res/316889.php

http://www.skullknight.net/forum/ - They usually know when a new chapter is coming out.

I think we should get a new chapter during spring.

they advertised this chapter having a color cover, but they covered up 70% of it with text, ads, and pinup girls. lol. good chapter though, I wish mangastream wouldn't filter the art so badly but at least this means we get chapters translated the day of instead of waiting for evil genius to get the raws themselves, which used to be a week or more sometimes. but man I would love to see this chapter's art without the blurry filter mangastream and other scanners use cause the imagery was incredible. I especially liked those femto manta ray flag things

funny how the closer they got the less subtle the symbolism got. giant apostle dickipedes and a forest of organs corpses and needles. but then at the center, it's just this simple bramble mountain, which manages to be the most ominous thing so far. whenever next chapter comes in winter, it's gonna be the darkest one of this arc.

>she doesn't want to be saved. She's pretty much dead.
that's definitely true on some level, but the tiny casca and the dog guts seem to represent her remaining attachment to living. I think tiny casca wanting to hang out with farnese now instead of inside the coffin speaks for that.

that said, they are far weaker elements that the rest of what's going on in casca's mind, that's why she's so tiny and the guts dog is so beat up (though that also represents her watching guts basically killing himself to protect her all these years). finishing the job is gonna be the hardest part of this arc.

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...

Amen. I haven't read Low or Seven to Eternity yet, but they're on my to read list.

I keep expecting Deadly Class to get bad or stupid and it consistently delivers. The reveals and twists are fucking nuts and quite ballsy. It's really refreshing.

Alan Moore's novel Jerusalem pretty much lays out Moore's theories on the way the world works. Providence was much vaguer than Jerusalem but a lot of the confusing parts make sense to me from having read the book. Like, in Providence, when you see something leaving multiple copies of itself behind it as it walks, there's a whole lengthy explanation of how that is what human travel looks like when you are looking down on the 3rd dimension from the 4th. The protags brain is now stuck in gear slightly above the 3rd dimension and he's seeing all those secret truths he thought would be cool that he now wishes he never investigated in the first place. And they only made him gay because all the IRL cosmic horror writers of the time were also gay, so it gives him a reason to be in their social circles. Even Lovecraft, while mostly asexual, is rumored to have had brief encounters with some of his fellow writers, even while being crippled by his deep beliefs that homosexuality was evil. There's a reason all those tentacled beasts he is so scared of look so much like vaginas.

Last years chapters were much more satisfying to binge rather than read weekly, so I';ll prob let HxH pile up and read them when it goes on inevitable hiatus again. If I thought it was back forever, I would read weekly but I know not to get false hope.

I'll admit there's stretches of it where I find it boring. some of the screencaps people post on /b/ and shit crop out the funniest parts and people might go into expecting a laugh a minute gag comic (and sometimes it can be). Not liking it is totally fair though. I almost never enjoy pure slice of life myself. Pretty much just this and yotsuba. unless you count sitcom tv shows, the bits in always sunny and king of the hill where they're just shooting the shit being themselves are really entertaining.

You're right. The most that happens is just like the odd character revelation. the main appeal is their decadent and depraved lifestyle. I agree with you. i don't think it's really funny but i still read it for some reason. I think what keeps me reading is to see how messed up their lives become, despite, yes, nothing seeming to happen.

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?
Question for those who have seen issue 141's cover: Does Carl go free Negan for help on this journey?

I don't really care if it's Eddie, Lee, Flash, Mac, whoever... The symbiote is the real start of the show now IMO. I've been enjoying the series (praised the first issue, lost some steam but still pretty good). The one thing I don't get is Eddie Brock's morality... Maybe they explain it in the upcoming issue, am I wrong or is Eddie not the type to merc a government security type in cold blood to get the symbiote back?... Also doesn't Eddie hate "Venom"? I know a lot of stuff has happened over the years but I thought he was more happy about the Anti Venom situation than the original suit.

I liked Shiver as a kid. Venom literally rapes someone, well...the symbiote rapes someone. And Idk if it's even the same symbiote as "venom" anyway but still. Fucking hardcore. Happens off panel too though. But what can you expect? It's marvel. Anyway shiver is basically The Thing, but with Venom. It starts bonding with people, controlling them/making them mad with power, and then using them up so fast they die and it needs a new host. It pairs with "Run", where Venom fuses with wolverine, the only one who can survive as a host because he heals as fast as venom feeds on him.

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?

X-men should literally be if The Marvel universe was a picture in the top two corners and weaving down like an X and cross each other. There details in the center highlight the sa,e contention or connection they experience in knowing the,selves. And they meet as the martyr and fear that they as the manifestation of not accident/intention/superlative, or cosmic/radiation/alien, but of DNA/genetics. The uncontrollable that makes us different the heroic od of coping, not the perception of onself through the struggles of power and responsibility and loyalty and self madeness like Spider-Man. Not having to work through something that boxes you in that you box out of, not identityand category or the underdog and the chase. The youth and the dream. No the other, and perceiving yourself as it. not as outcast struggling out of categories inflated but perceived as normal, or always having had come from position of the other know going against a thr shelf that says you cannot self doubt anxiety Spiderman outcast.

The biological peripherals of the marvel universe that actually shape and hold the picture steady as well as influence it positively, by being the thing fluctuating even on a biological or even quantam level as in the dna itself. Just as they are mutants.

As they are like the literal interest but just as true in a misunderstanding they are that for fear a literal scapegoat or imagined evil for what is at the center that can't see the origin points fully at the far corners. A subject that haunts the x-men themselves. they face uncertainty that haunts individual heroes in personal crisis and isolation as collective but not always as community. As the gaze of the other but also as the realization of the other through activation or awakening of mutant powers, some handle that differently. Some become like nieztzhe and believe in an epitome or an uber for which they can strive like magneto others don't go through the extremes in process and life for the end or risk it either, instead knowing they have that future underway through a process like Socrates like Xavier.

Being the and building the constants and axioms and in a sense the shared world itself for those who have experienced.

They must always express that in their tie in to the big events they as flux have established or discovered a link or made known to either the reader or the world a way in which that uncertainty or unknown was apart of a building block or stability or heavilynfeatured aspect of the universe. Kind of like getting closer and closer to realizing your whole life is a pathos told by Wolverine's odyssey where the very realtynof that journey is questioned for Wolverine. Big events in Marvel should see that figure who has not only experienced the fluctuations of mutant ability and himself as the other in terms of animal and his journey in coping with, celebrating, and thriving with that, bit in terms of fluctuations in self awareness and transfiguration of self.

And even knowledge of that even being a thing that has happened to him. Come closer and progress. While leaving the idea of it as a future something that is as attainable as a future sought after in life. Like ones search for there roots and ones self understanding.

They should position the position of mutant truths becoming public, and experiment with the dominant or fixed point of view outside the nexus or climax being developed through this.

As well as the locus moving from the norm to the periphery itself as in not just emphasis but for the marvel universe itself.

I would read 616 and ultimate. A lot of the charm of what happens in the continuity of the ultimate universe is how things twist in imagining out of the picture you have of what might happen from your knowledge of the original Marvel U. For instance how important of a character Gwen Stacy became in Ultimate Spiderman.

What do y'all think of the direct market system? Everything I've seen recently seems to show it's pretty outdated and doomed to fall apart. Particularly way shops have to gamble with their preorders and the way shops in general get fucked over except by trades but it's the preorders that determine what doesn't get cancelled.

On that note, is it really true that digital sales have a much smaller impact on what series make the cut? That seems ridiculous, is the digital market just too new to be dependable?

Also, do a lot of people here actually go to physical comic shops? I haven't been in one in years but my preference has always been for trades and online for stuff I'm impatient for. I can see how a lot of people have nostalgia for the shops but I don't think they'll exist in their current form for long. I always hear about how much comic shops are struggling and continuing just out of passion for the comics. Digital is just too convenient.

all the comic shops in my area closed up one by one over the years. it's unfortunate. I think in the future comics will eventually work on digital subscription basis. either for access to a publisher's entire library, a portion of it, or to currently running series. maybe a tiered system offering one or more of those setup. we're a ways off and the industry will resist it, but I think that's where we're headed. digital distribution and the death of serial print comics, though I think physical collected volumes will still be made.

I hear the Marvel app offers unlimited access to a huge portion of their older comics, with only newish stuff being pay by the issue.

For OP, I pirate all my comics. Sucks for the industry, but I do pay for merch for some of my favs, so they need to learn to be happy for whatever they get from my broke ass. If I ever get above the poverty line and have some free cash laying about, maybe I'll actually pay for some comics. Until then, piracy is the new opiate of the poor masses. I just need free entertainment to keep me from realizing I'm alive between shifts at work.

'Been reading Gantz G. So far I don't know know how it fits chronologically but it tells the story of some high schoolers who got to play the hunting alien game with Gantz.

I like the tension mostly between the characters because it reminds me of my high school days, except less violent and over the top, but it's there.

Gantz' creator did the story for this one but it's another guy who draws it.

Southern Bastards (ongoing)
Nameless (complete at 10 issues)
Grant Morrison's X-Men run
The Mighty Thor Vol 1: The God Butcher (arcs after the first 10 issues are lame though)
if you finish Preacher and want more, read The Boys
The Walking Dead.
If you already read and love walking dead, read Kirkman's long running capeshit book Invincible.
Doom Patrol (Grant Morrison run)
Sandman (the first arc is iffy but everything after is mind blowing goodness)
Swamp Thing (Alan Moore run, particularly if you like Sandman)

Good recs tbh. At least the stuff I've read myself.
First instinct on seeing the OP was to suggest The Boys as well. Although Sandman, Swamp Thing & Doom Patrol definitely rank higher. Must-reads IMO.

...Reading those 4 titles back I realized Warren Ellis is conspicuous by his absence. Planetary's fine, but his best work's definitely Transmetropolitan IMO. Longer, richer, far more focused. And a lot more "Ellis" too, absolutely hemorrhages his caustic wit. That'll be my contribution for now.

Scratch that, just noticed Thanos Quest.
It's short, fun and accessible, which is why it gets recommended on its own as a self-contained mind-trip, but it's slap bang in the middle of an epic some 30 years long so you miss out on a lot of context that would make it even better.
As an introduction to the character himself, it cannot be topped. He's been tempered by those first 15 years of experience and not yet condensed by the following 15, striking the perfect balance of complexity & penetrability. But if you have the time, and want to know the WHOLE story, maybe try out his first two arcs first (Quest is the introduction to his 3rd).
Both were published in the 70s. There was his feud with Mar-Vell, and shortly after that his tussle with Adam Warlock. Both storylines featured the Avengers heavily and had issues scattered all over the place, but Marvel compiled it all into "Captain Marvel by Jim Starlin" and "Warlock by Jim Starlin" if you can find them. Alternatively there's an "Avengers vs Thanos" TPB which condenses both into ~1000 pages. It skips some of the Marv/Adam context but includes every issue Thanos appeared in, including one or two that Marv & Adam didn't.

You know what? Read Thanos Quest. If you like it and want to know what happens next, read the classic stuff first. It'll give you all the backstory for what you just read and all the context you need for what follows. Plus Quest's short enough that if you wanted you could read it again with that new context in mind before starting on Infinity Gauntlet.
