I read the new chapters of Bleach and Naruto weekly on www.onemanga.com

I just bought the latest JSA book (Thy Kingdom Come pt3) and a Sandman book.
I read Full Metal Alchemist on One Manga. I think I will start collecting the books once I have some space for it.

Fables is great. I recently borrowed book 10 (The Good Prince) from the Library and I have read book 1 and some of Jack of Fables. I'm glad the writers have been given JSA to work with, because they can craft a fantastic story.

I don't follow any particular comics, but I do pick up the odd graphic novel from time to time.
Most recently:
Most of the Tintin Series. (Comic book or graphic novel?)
Watchmen
Road to Perdition


I also follow the various comics at Brickzone.

Hm, I seem to have missed this thread too. Let's see...

I just got three volumes of Uncle Scrooge by Don Rosa from my sister for Christmas. I'm a huge Don Rosa fan. Too bad they don't print his stuff anymore. :cry_sad: I loved Scrooge and the gang ever since I watched DuckTales as a kid, and Rosa's comics are very well written and drawn, and they have really fleshed out Scrooge's character. :thumbup:

I also follow the Star Wars: The Clone Wars webcomic. It's surprisingly good compared to the TV show! :sweet:

And I still read some Garfield and Gary Larsen every now and then. :grin:

And I have also recently "read" the Simon's Cat book, if that counts. I love the cartoons, but the book was kinda "meh" because it reminded me too much of Garfield. Still nice though. :thumbup:

As a kid, I read the entire Asterix and Tintin collection. That was some great stuff. Unfortunately the latest Asterix comics suck, and there has been nothing new from Tintin for a while, but I'm very excited for Spielberg's Tintin movies! :sweet:

My list has changed! I have added

Hark! A Vagrant

Escape from Terra (on Bigheadpress.com)

and removed quite a few, for getting boring/wierd/annoyingly immature.

Hark! A Vagrant is like xkcd but for history and Escape from Terra is a SF series concerning colonies in space.

Nice thread revival!

I used to be a Marvel zombie, but quit 15 years ago and stuck to indies.  About two years ago I started buying some trades, because I heard they'd gotten actual writers working for them.  By far the best was the Captain America Omnibus, which ends with the (highly-publicized) death of Captain America.  Fantastic book.  And I really liked Joss Wheden's Astonishing X-Men.  The other men-in-tights book I really liked was Grant Morrisson's All-Star Superman.  It made a character that bores the heck out of me seem really interesting.  

Last year, I read through all of Y, the Last Man, and was completely satisfied.  The author is now a writer for the show Lost, since season 4 (ie. when it got good again), so if you like Lost, this book might hook you in.

Overall though, I like the stuff written and drawn by one person.  The stuff I bought last year:
Asterios Polyp - possibly the best comic I've ever read, about a divorced architecture professor.
George Sprott - a fictional biography of a small town Canadian television personality.
Acme Novelty Library - every issue/book is perfect.

Currently I'm reading R.Crumb's full adaptation of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, beautiful, beautiful book.

Waiting in the wings is the massive 800+ page auto-biography of underground Tokyo manga artist, Yoshihiro Tatsumi, A Drifting Life, about when he was an up and comer, in the 60's.  Looking forward to it, but it's a real tome, and will take time to get through.

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

I am a Satanist and not ashamed.

Well let me step back about 20 years and I'll let you know what I used to collect.

X-Men
Cable
Superman

and lots of random ones that I can't remember.  I never did find my old comics, I'm not quite sure what ever happened to them. I'd love to find them, and sell them for LEGO money.

I gotta admit: I despise the superhero comics genre in particular, and since it's so pervasive, it's tainted my opinion of comics in general. So I don't read many. That said, I have read a few.

I went through an X-Statix phase a few years ago, it was almost a parody of the superhero genre but eventually became just another part of it.

Years and years ago, I read Marvel Heroes Reborn and collected every issue. It's largely due to that series that I now hate superhero comics, but while I understand that the guy behind it isn't exactly respected in the industry, I still see it simply as a magnification of what I don't like about them, not as an exception to the rule.

I read Watchmen when the movie came out (though I didn't see the movie). I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It's good, it deserves its reputation, but I just read it once and moved on, mission accomplished.

I don't read much manga anymore, but I used to. The last series I read right through was Death Note, which was excellent up until you-know-what happened and still good after that. I liked Sgt. Frog until it jumped the shark. I don't normally go for shoji stuff but I loved Mahoromantic and read the whole thing.

I don't really read any dailies regularly, though Dilbert's good. I also really like Pooch Cafe and Garfield but they're in newspapers I hate reading, so I don't see them much. Historically, my fave would be Calvin & Hobbes.

Webcomics, none.

Ah yes, I forgot about C&H. :classic: I read some of those too, and they're pretty good.
You know, you can always read the Garfield strips on the official website. :wink: Just bookmark it, and hit it up every once in a while, like I do.

Sometimes DC like Batman, not Superman though :sick:
Any Star Wars I can get hold of
Newspaper strips :tongue:
Sometimes Calvin & Hobbes
Any other comics that seem interesting.

I'm reading through the Watchmen "graphic novel" currently, and it's amazing - even better than the film (which is a high compliment from me, even though I expected it would be as such - film adaptations rarely live up to the source material, unfortunately.).

Aside from that, the only normal comic I enjoy is Calvin and Hobbes - most superhero-style comics I don't care for, although I do like to be versed in their lore just so that I can know something about them.  :tongue:  I read a ton of webcomics though, I'll list a few of them:

-Looking For Group
-Planet Zebeth (Metroid Sprite Comic - unfortunately, it looks as if it's slowing down now, but back during its heyday it was amazing)
-Slightly Damned
-Cyanide and Happiness

There's a ton more, but those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head. =P

I'm more of a funnies person. I read them each morning over a bowl of cereal. My favorite is Calvin and Hobbes, but unfortunately, my paper doesn't run it.  :sceptic:

As for webcomics, I only read one so far- xkcd.

I would love that.  I have some Rosa books, like the Life of McDuck, but the only Barks I have are the odd Gladstone reprint from the 90's.  That would be a good investment.

For the others mentioning dailies, Calvin & Hobbes is great, the art, the writing, the pacing.  It's a shame Watterson retired.   But I'm surprised to see Garfield fans.  It seems really generic and repetitive to me.  Plus, Garfield is a Republican  :tongue:
