Hrrrm just finished Y the Last Man the other day was really good and funny and had lots to say about what the world would be like without men in it at all although i do think if there was only one man left on this earth i think all the females would be busy trying to get themselves pregnant than trying to assassinate or use him as a tool.

I thought the art was nice and clean and not as dark and scratchy as most Vertigo stuff which just leaves me cold for some reason.

Think ive seen it about but never really looked at it.

Just read about it on Wikipedia and looked at the images on google and it looks interesting. Might have to look into it.

It's really funny a lot of times the protagonist reminds me a lot of Chandler Bing from friends.

Yeah ive got the Civil War Thunderbolts which i enjoyed. But im abit confused on Venom. Hes in the Thunderbolts yet Eddie Brock's been terminally ill in hospital.

Unless the Spiderman retcon happened before then?

The current Venom is actually Mac Gargan, AKA The Scorpion. He's a much better Venom, IMO, because he's more violent and he's also a cannibal now. He's currently the "new" Spider-Man on the new lineup of Avengers (but you'll find that out once you get around to Dark Reign).

Eddie Brock is now Anti-Venom after the retcon. He's forgiven Spider-Man and he's now an full-time anti-hero instead of a sometimes hero/sometimes villain. His sybiote is white with black instead of black with white, and he got it after touching Martin Li/Mister Negative, and the touch also cured his cancer, and the new symbiote has some kind of healing ability, as well as not having the original symbiote's weaknesses, like fire and sonic waves.

Also, curefreak, is Y a single graphic novel or multiple volumes? I'm thinking of buying it.

Ahh that explains it. I was wondering why in the Thunderbolts Venom was known as Gargan. I was thinking to myself isn't that Scorpion.

I really want to get hold of the Black Edition of Spiderman, apprently its amazing.

The Black Edition is the one which was released shortly after the events of 9/11 and is apprently very moving. Only problem is that it was released 8 years ago and i think its going to be quite hard to find. Unless i start collecting JMS' series from the beginning. But even so going back that far is going to be hard to find the Graphic Novel versions.

Gonna update the rest of my collection post in a few days as i can't be arse to do it at the moment. Took me ages just typing all that up because i had to keep on going back and forth from my room to typing it on here and trying to put it in chronological order.

BTW whats your favourite crossover event for the Marvel Universe?

For me its Civil War and then the classic Age of Apocalpyse which i still have a few first print copy's lying around somewhere. And as for series event its Messiah CompleX (X-Men is my favourite comic) and also Planet Hulk/World War Hulk.

It's got to be Civil War and AoA for me, too. Onslaught was pretty good, though.

Yeah ive got the graphic novel volume of that. The only other volume ive seen about is Volume 3 which i believe is the conclusion and so don't want to buy it because i know ill read it and miss all of the best bits in the middle. Can't seem to find Onslaught Saga Volume 2 anywhere though.

You really should check out Battle Royale though. Its a manga. The story is awesome. Check it out on Wikipedia if your uncertain. Just don't let your parents see it if your under 18 as its VERY explicit. The book (novel) is one of the most controversial books ever written and then manga version is basicly the book but with the controversial artwork included. It borders hentai.

I've never seen volume 2, myself, but I've read a decent chunk of the comics.

Bumped because I just heard that Steve Rogers (the original Captain America) is being brought back from the dead. Now, I was more pissed than anyone when he was offed, but after seeing Bucky in action for the past few months, I'm pissed Rogers is coming back.

I'd suggest you buy the Joker one-shot graphic novel, it's kind of a non-cannon unnoficial Dark Knight sequal centered around the Joker (Batman doesn't appear until the final few frames). It's written by Brian Azzarello and the art is done by Lee Bermejo. It's really gritty and dark and the Joker is kind of a cross between the Dark Knight and traditional versions of the character.

That sounds pretty badass, I might check that out.

I've been reading more manga than I have anything else, as of late. I doubt anyone else on here is a manga fan, though. >.> In before: weeaboo.

Never got into Naruto, really. While the story seems good and it's moderately entertaining, Naruto's voice just pisses me off ridiculously - it's like Sponge Bob with a sore throat. It also seems a little bit cheesy. It would probably be better if I really got into it by watching it from the start; but 220 episodes? Damn. Of course, to be fair I did watch 167 episodes of InuYasha, and I'm currently reading another 100 plus manga chapters to see the ending, so I could probably find time to get into Naruto.

Oh right, this is the comic book thread. Eh, just forget what I said about his voice and pretend I'm talking about the Naruto manga.

Hmm... Title needs to be changed to "Good Graphic Novel/Comic Thread," that'll keep it free of kids in orange jumpsuits who are clearly not ninjas.

I haven't had anything to do with anime/manga since Gundam back in middle school, so unless anyone reads Marvel or DC, there's not much I can say.
