Think how much better comics would be today if the Comics Code hadn't been implemented back then.

I really liked what they did with Miss America when they brought her briefly back as a racist.

Rofl, what a joke. Bots do make me laugh.

Spider-Man kinda sucks, too much Peter Parker bullshit, not enough action. Read the five-issue Sinister Spider-Man miniseries (Venom posing as Spider-Man), it's good times. Best Venom ever.

Ubisoft are working as "Ubiworkshop" making an Assassin's creed comic series, which will be out in or stores soon! smile.gif It's is set in a different time period to the games. And is set in Russia/Siberia. Sounds fun. I might have to pick up the first issue.

Pic:

Dunno why, but this picture looks more shogun assassin than Russian soviet :S

Teaser video:

Here is the video they released for advertising.

There was a rumor that Assassin's Creed III would be set in feudal Japan, and now the comic set in Russia has a Japanese theme. Interesting.

Also, while I don't really like steampunk, that arm is badass.

The Assassin's Creed comic project revealed last month now has an official release date. WildStorm's Assassin's Creed: The Fall will land in a pile of hay on store shelves starting November 10, just a few days before the retail debut of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The Fall takes place in late 19th century Russia and follows the exploits of the assassin Nikolai Orelov as he seeks to snatch "an artifact of immense power" from the Templars. It also promises a "climactic and violent showdown with the ruthless Tsar Alexander III aboard a speeding train!" Exciting!

It's hard to keep it straight sometimes. I talk about the Gears of War comic in first person a lot.

I used to collect Spiderman comics when I was around 14-15, forget which one it was (Amazing, Astonishing, etc) but I'll have to try and find 'em out. I had quite a few of them and would be interesting to read. The last comic book I read was Kick-Ass, which is more of a graphic novel, but still counts, lawlz.

Amazing, Spectacular, Web of, and Peter Parker are all Spider-Man sub-headings. Astonishing was X-Men.

Do you like zombies? The Walking Dead just came out with it's 12th book. Give it a read.
