I am bored, therefore I shall deviate from my usual wrestling tirades to tirade on comics (which I am wont to do!).


1) Origin (of Wolverine you schluck!): Welp, #6 came out and it was kinda a cool conclusion. I like the fact that Jenkins lets us draw our own conclusions with somethings. Although this could use a sequel...it was a good stab. Get it??? STAB!! Wolverine!! I kill me...


2) Deadpool: Hot damn! Talk about most improved book of the year. Cool artwork from UDON, Funny as Shit writing from Gail, and some new really odd supporting cast (read: supermodel-like chick, a make no sense bum, and a miniature Rhino). Throw out all the old stupid villains (which they did) and you have a perfect mix of random quirkiness that this book needs. I seriously laugh out loud at this one. Add the Taskmaster *seriously underrated awesome villain* and you've got MONEY BAY BEE!!


3) Captain Marvel: Peter David is my best friend for writing this book. ChrisCross is one too for his fab artwork and storytelling. "This is my friend Plaht. We will use his "Plaht Devices" to further along our quest." lol...ah such subtle stupidity makes this book one of the best written adventure books.


4) This new Captain America: Oh yeah! John Cassady draws cool shit...man, you've gotta love his shots of Cap cleaning up during the WTC disasters. Great homage work.


5) Love Hina: If you didn't grab this gem from TokyoPop in its graphic novel form then you're missing out on one of the past year's BEST mangas. Funny, romantic, and absolutely ridiculous. If you like really really good japanese slapstick, this is where to go.


Welp, I'm not bored anymore. I'll be back sometime soon to throw out some more reccomendations.

This is quickly becoming my favorite comic since getting back into comics over a month ago. But one I am surprised you did not mention is Spider-Man: Blue. I know it is only a retelling of an old story, but Loeb using the aspect of the story actually coming from Parker is a nice twist. It gives real insight into a time which isn't mentioned much anymore.

Aw yeah, Spider-Man: Blue was excellent! Those five comics were just the ones I had in front of me at the time.


I'd also like to mention: New X-Men, Transformers, Hawkman, GTO, and Batman: Gotham Adventures as being most entertaining. Nooch

I'm a big fan of Elfquest myself, though the art is rather lame. It's the plot that does it for me, I guess. I never really got into any other comics, except for some of Sandman and Books of Magic.

Here's what *I* read:

Amazing Spider-Man [J. Michael Straczynki & John Romita Jr.] Great, great stuff. MOST IMPROVED BOOK OF THE YEAR.

Ultimate Spider-Man [Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley] Gold!
The Ultimates [Mark Millar & Brian Hitch] Gold!
Ultimate X-Men [Mark Millar & Adam Kubert...I think] Gold!

AND, OF COURSE...Origin. Loved it!

My favorite as a kid was Daredevil. The Elektra stories were great. Once every few years I will pull out the books and read from about 160 to 210. That is some sweet shit going on.

Frak Miller is awesome.

Best book right now bar none, is the Thunderbolts!!! I wasn't that thrilled when Nicienza(sp?) first took over, but he's done a great job and Zircher is maturing into a great penciller and I'm not missing Bagley near as much as I thought.

JSA is a close 2nd.

I quit Amazing Spider-Man after the 9/11 issue. I miss JRJr.'s amazing artwork, but I don't miss JMS' writing at all.

Why doncha like JMS's writing? Spidey's never been better. Alas, it's your choice. Just remember... READ AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #38...best issue since ASM 400.

I mainly just read the collections. I don't have the patience to sit around for a month for resolution to a story. That being said, the best I've read recently has been Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing. Great, great stuff that pretty much set the tone for Vertigo. The story collected in Love & Death involving Arcane and Abby gave me nightmares for weeks.

The series that I loved, but couldn't convince any of my friends to get into was The Invisibles.

Super-hero wise, I've been digging The Authority and Morrison's run on JLA. Promethius is one of the only villains I've liked that was created in the past 10 years.
