im really really new to comic books - but not the history of the main characters..... so my first delve into the world was to get the entire Civil War series, with other stories that fit into the piece, my word is it brilliant....... what would i need to buy after you think to continue the story up until World War Hulk.

Just got...



...and Im so impressed! A plots being introduced very slowly as to not ruin the core idea and its all falling into place nicely, answering questions from the last volume and posing some new ones. Also Risso's artwork has improved in my mind, shilouette work is still great but his linework has improved loads!! Cant wait to pick up the third volume soon.

Also got 30 Days on Night, looking forward to that!

If it's the same edition of 30 Days of Night that I have then there is a priceless soundbite recomendation on the back that goes along the lines of: "Very scary - don't read it with the lights off."

Had it recommended as one of the "100 most important comics of the century".  Got to admit I've only just started it but the rather thickly lined simplistic artwork is quite ugly and the story hasn't really grabbed me.  Still I'll persevere.

I'm a huge fan too man, Bruce Campbell's foreword to the book is hilarious as well and J. Scott draws him extremely well.
I just bought the Danger Girl - Back in Black tpb last week too, not up to the level of Campbell''s own efforts, but Nick Bradshaw's pencils are dynamic and cartoonish, pretty good stuff.

It didn't get any better.  At least it was only £5 off ebay.  Where it shall be returning very soon.



A bit early to really see where this series is going but it looks like they plan to kill off a few more secondary characters in the near future.   There also seems to be some conflict with the events of 52 with continuity being a bit messed up.

This is another one of those comics which you either get or don't.  I sadly don't.

Being a total numpty I bought the third installment in the series so I've avoided reading it for now, however I'll be looking for that quote after work!

Finally picked this up (unfortunately without the bizarre quote) and was pretty let down. I had high hopes due to the praise lavished on it but I had to dig very hard to find anything that really stuck out as ground breaking. The overall story was good but it badly needed chapter breaks to fix its erratic timeline, it was hard to tell if the whole thing took a week or a few hours. Also the characters were as flat as pancakes.

I really didnt get on with Ben Templesmiths artwork. The cover and a quick flick through the book caught my attention when I first picked it up in the shop but when I started reading it I realised just how shoddy it is, Im all for loose style but underneath his 'Photoshop Tricks 101' Templesmiths lineart was terrible, Ive seen scamps with more skill and verve.

Stupidly I bought the sequal before hand (I didnt read it first, I like to read stuff in order) so I'm going to give the series a second chance so I really hope it tightens things up a bit.

I also picked this up yesterday and dont have much to say apart from its another great volume, a bit short maybe but still solid as a rock, if anything Risso's even tightened up his work, its subtle but compare it to volume 1 and its all there. Plotwise, Im getting the feeling that 100 Bullets is a bit like Lost, for every plot thread tied up 2 more loose appear. Im looking forward to the fourth.

The first Manga book I've ever bought!

So far, so good. Although there is 15 volumes, and to buy them all at £6.99 would come to about £104.85...

I  can't recommend this series enough-- it's a fantastic read (though it does dip in quality somewhat in the middle but the final few volumes are outstanding)
Yeah, the price thing is a bit of a problem...I spent over 150euro on the entire thing but I was buying them as they came out so I couldn't buy loads at once but you can, which will be probably be both a blessing and a curse

I'm up to volume 8 now, so I'm about half way through. And yes, its fantastic. But speaking of volume 8, what the fuck? Definatly the most disturbing and fucked up thing I've ever read. No wonder its rated M!

Dang, wasn't sure if I was right about what that volume was and now I'm re-reading the entire thing again...for shame.
Yes, that volume is quite extreme...probably the most disturbing one of the series.

So far, the manga has been worth every penny, if only for the fantastic artwork (at times breathtaking) and the characterization really helps when watching the film. Far more so than the book!

That's one of the great things about the series, it helps to add more to the film but I find that the film is actually quite inferior to the Manga after reading the entire set.
There's actually a sequel (to the manga) but hasn't been punlished in English yet (only a few chapters have been completed) but you can get it in Spanish and French.

Yeah, Blitz Royale or something? I wonder if its better than the film sequel? Probably!

Comparing the first film and manga is quite hard though, as while the film is quite understated and subtle, the manga is very IN-YOUR-FACE  and OTT. I'm only half way through but so far I see it as an excellent companion piece to Fukasaku's movie.

True, it's very OTT but that's one of the things I love about it (even if some of the kids can shrug off the odd bullet or ten and manage to keep going for a while).
Apparently, the manga sequel takes some elements from the second film but (hopefully) won't  be as bad and I'll be quite a while before it's finished and doesn't have the same artist. Oh well...
