Crossed, I love. It's kind of like if you took The Walking Dead and made the zombies crazed humans. Really, really crazed. This book is over the top in gore and sexual content, it's hard to communicate just how offensive it would be to a lot of people, haha. But I love it. And it has a great survivor story to go with it, much like The Walking Dead's, it doesn't depend on shock value to entertain. But like Kirkman once again again, Ennis pulls no punches with his writing. The sequel series, Family Values, wasn't written by Ennis but is still a great book and sticks with the themes of the first series. It's even more #$%#$ed up, amazingly
Hmmmm must get!!

re: Transmetropolitan for whatever reason, I could never get into it. And it's strange because I really like a lot of Ellis' other stuff, like Planetary, The Authority, The Frequency. Trans just didn't grab me, although everyone else seems to love it.
Thank you!

I was hoping Crossed would be some sick shit. I found Preacher to be arousingly nasty. The Boys is also pretty perverted. Crossed is going in my shopping trolley.

As for Trans... did you make it to book 3? By the time I was through that book, I was well and truly gripped. The 3 main characters and the way they interact is both car-crash and hilarious. Ah well... it takes all sorts, right bro?

I read this one today about an MMA fighter, dug the way it started out and wonder how they will keep it up... Anybody else get it?

Damn you Brian Michael Bendis.

Miles Morales is awesome.

Gangke may be the second greatest character in the multi-verse.

and now the undisputed greatest joins the cast.



I thought I was out. You pulled me back in.

Damn you Bendis.

Am I? I JUST DON'T KNOW

I read comics religiously as a kid, but I've strayed away for the most part, short of the larger story arcs and graphic novels. Not due to a lack of interest, mind you, but rather a lack of time. I still tend to keep up with most things Batman related, especially if it involves The Joker. The Killing Joke is one of my all times favourites, and the semi-recent Joker is a tremendous read, as well.

That said, one thing comic books cannot seem to get right as of late is superhero deaths. I've not enjoyed a tale of a superhero's demise since the death of Superman way back when. Captain America and Batman were complete cop-outs, and I just don't care for the handling of Peter Parker (which I still maintain was done so as to bring in a minority friendly superhero).

Agreed, I'm not a fan of 'deaths' either. Fortunately for Marvel the death of Spider-Man was in their 'Ultimate' universe, and doesn't effect their main comic Amazing Spider-Man.

Will have to look into the Killing Joke, haven't read too much Batman but started getting the new DC 52 Dark Knight and enjoying it.
