I never liked Daredevil or Spiderman comics. I should add re recs that I grew up reading US comics and read them all the way through my 20s as well. So I've done all the older Marvel/DC stuff. I've dabbled since, so I read Kick Ass, had a go at Preacher.

Invincible looks a bit like Sky High - would that be fair? I love this Comixology thing where the first issue is often free


It's kind of like an 18 rated Sky High if we're gonna go down that route.

Depending on how whimsical you are when it comes to comics Bone is a must for everybody in my view. Also forgot to mention American Vampire, which in my opinion is one of the best comics running at the moment.

Was also nice to see you giving the Waterstones on Sauchiehall Street a mention they've really stepped up their comic section in recent times....

The last mention wasn't favourable I'm aftaid - I'd to leave without a purchase the other week because of the state of the GNs they were still charging 'new' purchase prices for - every single GN of Fables has damage to the cover.

Turning a section into a reading room might seem public friendly but it inevitably, I think, means resultant problems with trying to sell what's left over. I like shopping in book shops rather than Amazon when I can, even if I know I'm paying more. But I'm not paying those prices for scuffed, damaged or obviously used books.

I was lucky this time as my purchases were on the shelf and didn't seem to have been messed with. It's not a problem I've ever noticed with general books, just the comics section

Can't say I've ever noticed that, however I am more inclined to buy from Forbidden Planet than Waterstones, like you say even if I have to pay a couple quid more.

It was maybe unfortunate that it was every one of the Fables books and that's what I was looking for.

I'd go to Forbidden Planet too, but it's harder to get there conveniently. I only get to Waterstones when I'm early for the GFT.

Also - did you see todays Obscerver? Ben Wheatley of Kill List/Sightseers fame choose Invincible as one of his cultural highlights

I would agree with you on Bone and American Vampire has been very interesting although it has drifted a little in the WWII storyline.

I haven't seen either of those flicks but hear good things so I'll keep an eye out since he's got such good taste in comics....

I think Kill List is on tonight on one of the channels - Film 4 maybe? It's because Sightseers is out on DVD tomorrow.

Thanks for the link furry, slight problem though it says unavailable, maybe someone ordered it before i could get to it? "damn them, damn them all to hell" !

Anyhow, looks like you finally nabbed that copy of Gotham Central eh? Nice one. And Habibi, wow. Will this be your first reading of said GN? It'll be interesting to hear your thoughts on it. As for me, i absolutely loved it! One of the most beautiful works i have had the pleasure of reading in the comics medium. And Origins was a blast, loved the whole story and Ezquerra's artwork is fantastic. That copy looks slightly different than the one i have, but the good thing being at least they spelt Ezquerra's name correctly, whereas the U.K version has an unforgivable error in the printing of the maestro's name.

Origins is the US edition that was released last week. I haven't read the story since it appeared weekly in the Prog; at the time I thought it was only ok so looking forward to giving it a re-read.

Yup this is my first time reading Habibi. I've read all his other work however!

And Gotham Central is brilliant. Unfortunately the fourth volume was gone so I'm still one short. Interestingly they had copies of the older editions with the old type of Vertigo paper. The difference it makes to the artwork is massive. If anyone is considering checking out this series (and you really should!) then I'd heavily recommend finding the new editions as the older ones really don't do justice to Michael Lark and co.s artwork!

Yeah I've read up as far as the end of Ghost Stories. Was really enjoying it but got distracted by other stuff, will get back to it soon.

Edit: You probably intended that post for Impqueen.

I did

I knew you already owned it, I remember you mentioning it when I got my copy.

Ghost Stories is the best story in the collection but they're all pretty kick arse IMO. I've loved pretty much everything I've read off Lemire so far. Lost Dogs was a very good debut, Essex County and The Underwater Welder are both up there with the best comic books I've read, the 4 volumes of Sweet Tooth I've read so far have been fantastic, his run on Animal Man is my favourite DC title and the couple of issues he's done of Green Arrow so far have been very good considering I'm not familiar with the character. I've actually been tempted to pick up Constantine based on the fact that he's writing but decided against it as I'm buying more than enough as it is. I might pick up the first trade when it comes out and see what it's like.

Really not an Apple fan but I think their issue seems to be the explicit aspect?

Not that it matters - Comixology have already confirmed they'll be selling the comic as usual.

Strange then that the opening page featuring a full page panel of Alana having a back arching orgasm while riding Marko in the last issue was fine. Not to mention the 2 angels in Sextillion wearing strap ons while performing a 69 got through seemingly without any problems. Most of the run has featured explicit or slightly disturbing images (giant ball sack ) so I'm expecting this to be pretty graphic otherwise Apple have a case to answer IMO.

I think it's the erect penis - that's the issue for the film side as well. As many nekkid penises and bits as you want, but yer actual erection is a censorship issue. Sex, upper bits seem OK - bit not erect penises. One of the comments also notes they'd removed one before with up close female genitalia, so it seems a little unfair they're trying to make it a homophobic thing (unless I've blanked and you do see that earlier in the story?

One of the comments also suggests it might still be on Apple but in a different part, one that does grade for that kind of defined Adult content.

Concluding the Saga #12 saga
Posted on April 10th, 2013 - 13:49 PM by David Steinberger
To our customers -

In the last 24 hours there has been a lot of chatter about Apple banning Saga #12 from our Comics App on the Apple App Store due to depictions of gay sex. This is simply not true, and we’d like to clarify.

As a partner of Apple, we have an obligation to respect its policies for apps and the books offered in apps. Based on our understanding of those policies, we believed that Saga #12 could not be made available in our app, and so we did not release it today.

We did not interpret the content in question as involving any particular sexual orientation, and frankly that would have been a completely irrelevant consideration under any circumstance.

Given this, it should be clear that Apple did not reject Saga #12.

After hearing from Apple this morning, we can say that our interpretation of its policies was mistaken. You’ll be glad to know that Saga #12 will be available on our App Store app soon.

We apologize to Saga creator Brian K. Vaughan and Image Comics for any confusion this may have caused.

All the best,

David Steinberger
CEO and co-founder
comiXology
