Yeah, talk about comics in this thread. If anyone saw Repo Man (1984), well their coming out with a sequel to it in comic form. It's called, Waldo's Hawaiian Holiday. Read the preview on: http://www.waldoshawaiianholiday.com/

Should be good.

To be quite honest, so far I have only read The Umbrella Academy, but that definitely makes me want to read more of not only that series, but other comic books in general. So nerdy, yet so awesome.

Sandman is awesome... Neil Gaiman is awesome in general.
HOLY CRAP I just googled him and he lives in Minneapolis! I need to go find him..... blink.gif

Anyway, Watchmen is also very good. Alan Moore is pretty badass in general as well...

Watchmen is the only graphic novel in Time Magazine's 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923-Present. Good comic books beat manga. Not shitty Superman comic books, comic books with plots and developed characters and intelligence.

'Comic books with plots and developed characters and intelligence' - it's like a description of manga. Most of them, at least.
Well, to each is own.

Lost Girls is an erotic graphic novel describing the sexual adventures of three important female fictional characters of the late 19th and early 20th century: Alice (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), Dorothy (The Wizard of Oz), and Wendy ( Peter Pan).
They meet each other to tell their stories in 1913.....its really cool and the art is so beautiful!! Well, its an Alan Moore's comic wink.gif

For sure some torrents have this comic to download...even Lost Girls, I saw it in some torrent...just try, Im sure you find it smile.gif and If you like, buy it, because it is a master piece hehehe wink.gif
I buy all comics that I love, I want to have them.....

I have a Special Edition of Spider-Man about the 11/9 ..... its just touching: the cover is all black, with the title in white; it tell to us what all the super heroes were doing that day, how they felt so lost and frustated that they couldn't help, they didn't have time to do something...its really cool!!

Great, I'm gonna look up for some torrents then. I've never used them, but hope I'll be able to figure out how to download them smile.gif

I've never bought any (normal) comic book and I hardly ever buy mangas, I just borrow them from my friend who is a manga maniac. To be honest, the only series I have is InuYasha, which is rather childish, I know, but for some reason I love it. Plus my sister got addicted to it as well, so let it be my excuse, haha.

Hmm the 11/9 thing sounds interesting too... not as much as the previous comic you mentioned, though smile.gif
