Do you like comics?

I buy alot of Sgt.Fury comics from the 60's.
Back when I was a kid, I bought comics every chance I had. That and monster movie mags...I still do.

I'm looking at this one now.

I know it's odd that I like war comics I reckon- but I do. I have lots of Sgt.Fury and Sgt.Rock.

I guess I outgrew comic books. They were great when I was a kid. I think the last comic book I bought was Superman vs. Muhammad Ali.
That said, I'd be interested in reading vintage comic books. When I was in Paris (France) years ago we went to some book store of sort. There I found a book with a collection of comic book/art by some French comic book writer that illustrated his work from the late 1960s to 1970s. It was pulp/horror/sleaze with a touch of S&M. Would've been a great coffee table book. I still regret not buying it.

I have a lot of British comics from the 80's and 90's, which alas don't have a lot of collectors value but I like them. Got several collections of older collected works, mostly horror type comic strips like Tale of the Zombie or Hookjaw. I like to keep an eye out for something with Axl Pressbutton being reissued but no joy so far.

Been reading comics since about the mid-to-late 90's.  (A time when a lot of people say comics where at their worst). 

Mostly super heroes, especially Green Lantern.

I do like Eric Powell's The Goon and his recent series Hillbilly, which can be described as Conan the Barbarian set in early 19th century Appalachia.

Love comics.

Mostly into Marvel titles.  Doctor Strange, Howard the Duck, Hulk. 

The Mask comic from Dark Horse was insane, loved that. 

Ninja Turtles.  A whole bunch of comics really.

I love comics. I have about 12 long boxes full of them (actually, a very small collection compared to most collectors). My sweet spot is comics that were published prior to 1990 (most of my collection is 1960s and 70s). I prefer Marvel, but I've been building a pretty decent DC collection in recent years: Justice League of America, Green Lantern, The Flash, The Atom, Action, Superman, Batman, Detective, Brave and the Bold, Teen Titans, Phantom Stranger . . . just about anything.

I'm mostly a Marvel guy and the 80s and 90s were my era.  I really started getting out of it about the time they launched the New Avengers and everything turned into decompressed events.

Hi there!


« Reply #10 on: January 20, 2020, 01:29:03 AM »

Yea I have some comics. I need to get back into reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.
Been reading comics since about the mid-to-late 90's.  (A time when a lot of people say comics where at their worst). 

It's usually the early to mid 90's that they were at their worst imo. For Marvel it was longer, DC got lucky with some of the best stories coming from the mid to late 90's. Image Comics was the new kid in town, and it's flagship comic, Youngblood, had so many delays between issues that it became a joke.

Sweet finds!

But yes, I love comics.

These days I read a lot of graphic novels and comic book collections.

I really love Swamp Thing, both vintage and when Alan Moore took over. Also the new horror/supernatural series, Gideon Falls is really good. I also really enjoy Vampirella, any era of that one really, and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Some of my favorite graphic novels are Black Hole, The Watchmen, and Maus.

I recently finished a read through of ... most of the original Hellblazer series. 

Wonderful stuff, except for the final few years when they introduced a spunky young girl with blue hair as a new love interested and had John marry her.  The series went straight to hell at that point, and not like the good times when the characters would actually go to hell. 

So I skipped ahead to the final issue.  I've checked multiple message boards and nobody can quite figure out what happened in that issue. 

Oh well.

I just started re-reading my Amazing Adventures: War of the Worlds/Killraven collection again. It started out as a great series, but the excitement fizzled out and they never even put any closure to the story. The series just ended with a strange, surreal final issue.
