I used to love Moore's Swamp Thing, but I haven't reread it in 17 years
I used to like Killing Joke but I don't think I'd dig it now
I didn't like V For Vendetta at all
From Hell is awesome
Watchman is awesome- except for that Pirate story

I only recently got around to reading Moore's Swamp Thing, and it's pretty awesome.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has been on my list for a long time. I think I'll finally dip in when the new volume comes out.

No. But I want to. Busiek's current run on Superman is meant to be pretty good.

Anyone here ever read Rising Stars? I'm thinking of checking that out, sounds promising.

Been thinking about it. Nearly picked up a book from the library today.
I might grab it after I've churned through a bit more that they've got that's on my list.

I've heard mixed reviews about his stuff outside of Astro City, but the general consensus is that Astro City is good stuff.

I like everything from Sin City to Bone, Carl Barks' Donald Duck (got the fifth book in the series today :smile: ), Sandman, Roman Dirge stuff (kind of girly, but still nice) and Robert Crumb.

I used to read lots of Marvel, and some DC when I was younger. The Incredible Hulk was my favorite. Ive also been a big fan of Andre Franquins work (Gaston Lagaffe, Spirou), Tintin, Lucky Luke and Asterix, for as long as I can remember.
As I type this, I so badly want to go visit my parents, and read old comics all day.


These days Im getting incredible kicks from this guy called Jason. Heres a couple of random samples:

His graphic novels are highly recommended!


Next on my agenda is Watchmen.

I'll probably pass on the chance to walk around with a jumper sporting printed-on pectoral muscles, thanks.

I read a torrent of the first issue. I'm hoping the hardcover version of the book will magically appear in my possession in the next few weeks.

I haven't seen the animated stuff, but I used to love Maxx. I think it's mostly Sam Keith that I really dug. His stuff on Sandman was awesome.
