    Scott Snyder's batman stuff is surprisingly good and a lot darker than I expected.

    Yeah Y is great. If you enjoyed that check out Ex Machina, same writer. Not quite finished it myself but it's really good.

    It's not perfect. It sags a bit in the middle and shits itself at the end and a few other bits and bobs I find annoying.

    Ex Machina is good but its no Y the Last Man. Would love to see a tv adaptation of both.

    @CosmicFuzz I thought I'd finished Ex Machina but it turns out I'm missing one of the books, will have to get that bought this weekend.

    It's enjoyable if you enjoy politics and some of the art is absolutely amazing but I think I agree with Munki that Y is the better series, not by much but Ex Machina just sort of fumbled around with it's story a bit too much, Hundred is a very good character though.

    I've been going to Gosh! in London, nice little shop, Forbidden planet I found a bit OTT and I've never been to Orbital (any good?) or got word on any other good comic shops?

    @munki83
    Y is a fabulous series, would also love to see a TV adaptation.

    Has anyone mention the Prophet series by Rob Liefield yet? Still ongoing, but something that's oddball but likable for it.

    How about Bone or RASL by Jeff Smith (Bone a good fantasy yarn, RASL time travel intrigue)?

    Ex Machina goes total shit at the end - It's as if Vaughan just gave up. Really enjoyed in then threw the last book across the room!

    Fables is my real love - that's been re-invented so many times and still works.

    You would struggle to find a comic more uneven than invincible.

    Better than the walking dead, though...

    I've read the first 80 or so issues and thought it was solid.
  • Deleted user 10 April 2015 17:59:44
    I love the walking dead. I'm currently subscribed to the judge dredd mega collection. 2 hardback graphic novels each month for 20 per month. I think it's great value and the quality is fantastic.

    A few years ago my sister, who is an estate agent was selling Brian Bolland's house.
    She mentioned it to me and I ended up getting a copy of the Camelot 3000 reissue ( very good!) with a signed portrait of The Joker tucked in the dust Sleeve!
    I really should get round to framing it, or if anyone's called James I'll sell it to you for 50quid? ;-)

    Anyway, I will pimp again on here, Message To Adolf. It's an 80s Manga that's been translated for western audiences, I mean it reads like a proper book. A ripping yarn set in Germany and Japan around WW2.

    Also Pinocchio by Winshluss, a gorgeous book that is proper X-Rated.

    Well, I think it's decent.

    I'm away for business for the next 19 days and was looking to download some big series to read on Comixology, something a little different. Tips folks?

    That's a good shout but it won't keep you going for 19 days. It's like crack when you get into it.

    If only there was more Sandman, read it all twice now.

    Try The Boys, if that's on comixology.

    It's not Ennis's best but it is self contained, a decent length (70+ issues) and pretty funny/gross.

    I really want to get into Astro City. The bits of it I've read seem very good...

    Anyone have a recommendation for a start point, or is it all good from #1 onwards?

    I enyoyed that a lot. It's thanks to this thread that I gave it a go too. I blasted through them all in no time.


    So Locke & key are worth checking out then?

    Locke & Key is fantastic. Really great modern day gothic horror stuff.

    I also really enjoyed what I read of Ex Machina. Need to pick up the rest of the books and finish it off. (Written by Brian K. Vaughn of Y: The Last Man)

    Hawkeye by Matt Fraction, Scott Snyder's Snyder's Batman are very good superhero comics. Lazarus, Southern Bastards and Deadly Class are some of the best Image series at the moment. Problem is none are particularly long runs.
