More Comic Recommendations Required
So, the first hint of snow has started to fall and sure enough, planes, trains and automobiles in the UK have decided to stop functioning. Consequently it looks like this weekend might comprise a fair amount of reading.
I’ve just finished book 7 of The Walking Dead and, at a friend’s recommendation – see below– I’ve bought the first books of Y, The Last Man & Chew to take a look at next.
I’m also going to have a crack at 100 Bullets, The Unwritten, Locke & Key and bash on with the Sandman when I get a few minutes (it’s taking me forever to finish the Stephen King’s Dark Tower novels – although just starting book six, the penultimate one, now).
So, I’m wide open to decent recommendations.
Failing that, I may have to finally unwrap Skate 3, Battlefield and Deus Ex on the Xbox this weekend.
Right, back to thinning out my inbox…
Sorry I didn’t notice your reply to my comment on the other thread… I hope you enjoy your purchases. A friend just gave me back a copy of the first TPB of Elephantmen – I highly recommend it – well written, amazing art and ideas that just make you stop and think. I mean, who couldn’t love reading about human/animal hybrids and survivors of a war fought between Africa and China over the European countries ravaged by the deadly FCN virus?
Belated happy birthday. Let me know next time you are up in the big smoke and we’ll have to check out Forbidden Planet together… or maybe just shoot the crap out of each other on the Xbox 🙂 If you are on Xbox Live, you can find me as ‘SpiderJerusalem’ – which hopefully is a comics reference you do get? If not – Google is waiting…
I can’t quite bring myself to play on Live. Always up for a wander around Orbital or Forbidden Planet though.
And yes, I do know who Spider Jerusalem is thank you very much. Harrumph. (NB – not a huge fan of transmetropolitan actually. Have you read Mr X? It’s old but amazing: see – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_X_(Vortex) )
Have you ever read Ted McKeever? Metropol is ace, as is Eddy Current, if you haven’t.
I’ll give Elephantment a go, thank you.
One more from me – have you tried Miracle Man? I guess so but someone asked me what my favourite comic was hte other day and I had to think but that was my answer)
