Seeing as my end of year comic awards thread went nowhere (I forgot about it myself till last week to be honest) I've decided to do a personal top 25-50 of TPB's, Graphic Novels and story arcs so I decided I had to fill in a couple of gaps which is why I've ordered Maus and Alan Moore's Swamp Thing Vol 1 this week. I'm hoping to start the thread in the next fortnight or so.

I did remember your thread the other day but then i realised i'll have a hell of fight on my hands trying to choose my best comic of last year! In fact it might be a tie at the top because the output last year was so strong. Anyhow, i look forward to your list, should be a cracking read.

Hopefully it will improve.....I think I need to re-read from the start to remind myself why I loved the series.

I stealth browse in here as well. I didn't check properly before buying this unfortunately - normally I find these several books in. Now I'm reduced to buying the damn thing issue by issue

I also picked up the first TPB of Fables. Is it worth keeping up? I enjoyed it enough, but not as a standout.

Hey nice to see you around these parts, elab! You're right Saga is a fabulous series...and addictive as hell! I just don't have the time to down to my local comic store for single issues so i have to wait till July for the next volume to come out - excruciating a wait as it is (i've decided not to download the issues as i know i'll end up buying it in the tpb format).

I can occasionally make it into Forbidden Planet and I sometimes use their online service. I stopped when I cancelled Walking Dead but I can see this taking me back 

But, I was lucky enough to get into the FP in Glasgow on Monday just when #10 arrived, so I've read everything post TPB. And now sit waiting

I think Fables is a very consistent title. You'll likely enjoy the further volumes as much as the first one. For me, it's not a stellar series but neither does its quality dip very much. It's always... good. The latest volume (volume 18: Cubs in Toyland) is actually probably one of the strongest stories to date in my opinion.

If you like Saga, I'd also recommend picking up Manhattan Projects and check out Criminal if you haven't already. Saga Vol. 2 is due out in early July. The single issues are very much worth buying; it has one of the most entertaining letters pages you're likely to get.

It's ridiculously good value! Well in that shop anyway, most regular comic shops cost a hell of a lot more. I'm mostly getting new releases there these days. There was a lovely, massive copy of Incal by Moebius & Jodorowsky but I couldn't quite afford it at $60. Chose the Sleeper omnibus over it, I'm afraid

Cool - I've ordered the next 3 volumes of Fables to see where that goes

I don't normally bother with the bit past the story in the comics but I'll give the letters pages a go. I did get Manhattan Projects as well, but I haven't read it read. Not see Criminal before though.

We may moan on about them but you've gotta admire DC for letting this go on for this amount of time.

A shame it was an issue which really was not a good send off to the character.

The other book I got was Revival which I also enjoyed. Sadly, like Saga, a recent start so I'll have to wait comic by comic on that one too.

Yeah it's ok. It took me a little while to even realise what was the situation with the characters! I enjoyed the second volume more. Riley Rossmo's art is interesting enough but I think his panel layout/pacing could be a bit better (I had similar issues with Green Wake, his more recent comic). The concept is stronger than the execution, I think.

Garth Ennis' The Shadow Vol. 1 was very good. Ennis appears to be maturing in his recent comics work, from war comics like Battlefields to both The Shadow and Fury: Max. Even his work on Crossed - a series commonly associated with the very worst in torture porn - is made far more noteworthy (and depressing) when Ennis is writing it. Apparently for Crossed he only ever features acts committed by actual human beings, usually during war times (I doubt the same is true for Lapham's work on the title, for example). I think his short arc for issues 1 through 3 was some of his best work (alongside Battlefield: Dear Billy and Punisher: The Slavers) and word has it that Crossed #25 is indicative of this same quality, with a history of British imperialism and the all too human atrocities committed in its name. I'll be picking that one up, though I've generally been giving Crossed a miss if it's not being written by Ennis or Simon Spurrier. I've yet to read his most recent Battlefields series too.

Right. In an ongoing effort to bankrupt myself

- Manhattan Projects. Absolutely loved, gone on to my FP subscription
- Fables - up to book 6 and counting
- Y The last Man - not a fan

I've even started re-reading some of my older stuff.

So - given Saga, Manhattan Projects, Revival, Morning Glories are all I'm reading at the moment - any other suggestions?

Out of all those I've read so far Chew has been my favourite but Manhattan Projects really reignited my love for comics in the last few months. Einstein is fantastic.

I'm hoping to purchase some comics next month

Criminal Vol. 1: Coward (or get the omnibus edition collecting the first three trades)
Glory Vol. 1 (Vol.2 finishes up the story and is out soon)
Daytripper (10 issues, self-contained)
The Umbrella Academy (two volumes)
Prophet Vol. 1: Remission (crazy sci-fi)
Casanova Vol. 1 to 3
Chew Vol. 1 to 6
The New Deadwardians (self-contained, eight issues)

It's pretty great stuff alright! Manhattan Projects volume 2 is out at the end of April. I'd recommend checking out Hickman and Pitarra's previous self-contained series Red Wing if you'd like something in a siimilar vein. It's not quite as madcap as MP but is an entertaining read with some lovely design and artwork.

I'd recommend Epic Kill, Peter Panzerfaust and Sweet Tooth (which I have been absolutely loving so far). I'd seriously recommend Grant Morrison's Happy when the trade gets released as well.

    Why not use the Amazon sellers? Places like Book depository and Aprohead are cheaper and very reliable (and backed up by Amazon if they don't deliver). Most of my recent purchases have come from them and a couple of others.
