    Anyone collecting Marvel Epics, they are cool and collecting runs of major series without the price tag of masterworks

    If anyone's not reading Sex Criminals, change that now.

    My thoughts on why the Bioshock franchise needs to cut back the shooting.

    Listen to CosmicFuzz, for once he knows what he's talking about. Sex Criminals is fantastic and the first TPB collecting the first 5 issues is out now and well worth it.

    I'd also recommend you run out and but Black Science by Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera. Excellent first few issues of that too.

    Just picked up the first trade of Rat Queens - it is brilliant!

    Brutal and funny tale of a band of four rude and raunchy female adventurers in a sort of D&D setting. The artwork is excellent too, which is a bonus - really recommend it. Apparently also being developed into an animated series.

    Preview of the first issue here.

    not a force for good

    Bit late but thanks for the Thor recommendations.

    I liked the look of Rat Queens, another one for the pile!

    I dint think I've heard of any of the stuff in the Boom Studios comic bundle on humble right now. Anyone familiar with them, recommendations?

    Seeing the thread bumped reminds me to I gave the Rat Queens a go and will certainly get the next one to see how it develops.

    Not sure I've completely taken to it.

    I need to check if The Elephantmen vol 6 is out yet.

    Quite enjoying Saga and Drowntown too.

    Six Gun Gorilla is well worth your time and money. I really enjoyed it.

    I think The Woods has been getting good word of mouth too.

    Ok thanks, I might check out the bundle then.

    I still haven't started reading The Walking Dead ones from the last bundle, I've pretty much just been reading Invincible.

    Has anyone read Through the Woods by Emily Carroll. One of my favourites can be found here.

    Out Of Skin

    Thinking about picking up seconds by Bryan Lee O Malley as well.

    Anyone got recommendations for comic readers on android? I've tried comic rack and perfect viewer but for some reason they can't read my epubs. Kobo does the job but it's not ideal because it copies the comic to the local phone storage and ideally I'd like to just read then from the sd.

    Edit: it seems that nothing but Kobo likes epubs so I'll have to redownload everything, sigh. At least the humble app handles books and stuff now too.

    The latest Humble Comic Bundle looks rather good - I'm trying to work out if it's worth the full $15 dollars for the Scott Pilgrim stuff (already read most of the smaller paperbacks).

    I don't know about Scott Pilgrim, but Greg Rucka's modern-day homage to Chandler, Stumptown, is pretty good. If they add his spy book, Queen & Country, later on, be sure to jump on it.

    Guys, any good recommendations for short Marvel stories? I keep reading DC stuff because they seem to have a lot of comics that can be read on their own, like Red Son, All-Star Superman, and various short Batman stories. The strength of these comics is that you don't need to bother with whatever messed up continuity is going on right now in the DC universe. Kingdom Come, Superman Birthright, Gotham by Gaslight, there's a lot of crazy DC stuff that's not even remotely canon, but very good to read.

    Marvel seems to be only releasing comics of the never-ending variety, ie Amazing Spider-Man issue 86512 instead of "What if Spider-Man was Russian?". Don't they do continuity-free short comics? I've already read the Marvel Zombies series, that was great stuff.

    This is exactly what you're looking for:
    Thor the Mighty Avenger
    Out of continuity work that gets right at the essence of the character in a light-hearted way. Not quite as mind-blowing as All-Star Superman (but then what is?), yet a great read in its own right. Great art as well.
    I've linked to single issue to allow for quick samples, but collections exist.
    Here for instance

    Absolutely loving Locke & Key at the moment - the best graphic novels that I've read for a good few months. Still can't get enough of Joe Sacco's work - devoured Gorazde in a few nights and now reading his second Gaza book.

    Anyone interested in the following

    Saga TPB vol one collecting issues #1-#7

    Then individual issues #7-#24 all bagged with backboards in mint condition.

    Its a fantastic comic and value is rising on ebay.

    Indeed it is. Desperately trying to get hold of volume 3 and onwards from my library but it looks as though everyone is going Joe Hill crazy at the mo and reserving all of his stuff.

    F*ck you, Daniel Radcliffe.

    A request for assistance:

    A friend of mine is asking for some good comics for a 10 year old boy that likes the Iron Man films. I'm thinking about stating the obvious and suggesting some Iron Man, but I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for anything more expansive?
    Bear in mind the age, so keep away from adult themed stuff.

    The big fat 'essential [character]' books are always a good place to start.

    Phone book sized compendiums of classic old stories.

    Hey folks, can I interest any of you in a digital download code for All-New X-Factor 1 from Peter David and Carmine Di Giandomenico? Could be a decent taster if anyone was unsure about the series.

    Send me a wee PM if you are.
