May 20, 2013 12:54 pm I got into comics through indie books, and they make up about 60% of what I still read today. Fantagraphics just put out Other Stuff by Peter Bagge, a collection of some of his lesser known work/collaborations, etc. Highly recommended! In general most of the things put out by Fantagraphics are pretty great to me. I'm an unabashed Peter Bagge and Daniel Clowes fanboy, though... Of course a lot of Image books and DH books are great now - Prophet, Saga, and Mind MGMT probably being the best known, and the new run of Abe Sapien has been off to a great start. Also thoroughly loving The Massive and Luther Strode (the art alone on LS...!). Very excited to see where Dream Merchant and Dream Thief are going, too.
February 14, 2013 12:59 pm I'm a longtime Hellblazer fan AND a longtime Milligan fan. I'm definitely bummed out that he's ending his run but 50 issues is pretty long for a Hellblazer run, and I feel like I heard him saying that it was about time for him to wrap it up. I'd rather he goes out feeling confident about his work than having it go on too long. Also, to IthoSapien, definitely read X-Statix. So much fun. Just get the Omnibus. Other amazing Milligan work is Enigma, The Extremist mini-series, and Shade. The Eaters one-shot is also pretty awesome.
February 4, 2013 1:05 pm I second that many of the books look and feel the same. Even when someone I really like is writing a book with characters I traditionally like (Peter Milligan and Stormwatch come to mind) it just feels like everything else. There is no attempt at differentiation – and if there is, I suspect the editors are responsible for squashing the individuality. Even books that started off with their own heart and soul such as Animal Man and Swamp Thing (seriously – those first issues got me so pumped) seem to have been streamlined into the damn crossover machine. I think if Animal Man and Swamp Thing (and JLD?) had been launched as Vertigo titles then we could have seen a lot more long term creativity. Going back to Peter Milligan, he's clearly had a lot more freedom on Hellblazer than he ever did for JLD and Stormwatch. Unfortunately, the writing is on the wall for Vertigo... thanks DC.
January 30, 2013 10:34 am Heck yes! I love this book. Pretty glad I've been buying it from the beginning, looks like prices are skyrocketing on eBay already...?
January 14, 2013 1:11 pm Loved this run of Punisher! Also, one of my favorite issues of Black Hole
