I read all sorts of comics, as I'm really into comics. I also write comic book reviews, I'm writing a comic book as well as a novel.
Is anyone currently reading Civil War? That's gotten quite a lot of media attention. I read mainly DC, a bit of Marvel and quite a lot of independent comics. Do you read any other comics besides Indiana Joes comics?
I read comics whenever I can. I have quite a collection of Ultimate Spiderman allong with some oriental comics. One of my favorite indy (as in independent) comics would have to be battle pope. Seeing Jesus in a "What Would I Do?" t-shirt cracks me up
I don't read Indiana Jones comics, though I often will pick up a Superman or Batman, or Spider-man. I like some of Alan Moore's work as well, though I'm not as fond of much of it as others. Like Moedred, I didn't get interested in comics till college. Still not a heavy reader of them, but I wish I had more than I do. ?Unfortunately, my town doesn't have a comics store and our bookstore refuses to stock comic books... crazy I know.
I've never been a fan of comics but if I could find the Indy ones I would certainly read them. I used to have a couple Young Indy comics but they're packed away somewhere and I haven't been able to find them.
Not to scare anyone but this is a list of the comics I'm reading at the moment...
JSA (Justice Society of America)
Legion of Super-heroes
Claw the Unconquered
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Star Wars: Rebellion
Hmm... I can't think of any more for the moment but I just love reading comics!
Gen 13 did an Indyesque story arc with #'s 3-5, collected in the now-hard-to-find TPB "Lost in Paradise." It probably deserves a mention on The Raider because the creative team soon left the title to make Danger Girl. Gen 13 were college-age Gen Xers, with the usual assigned powers (fire, strength, anti-gravity). Writer Adam Warren arrived late to flesh out the characters.
Strangers in Paradise is about lipstick lesbians in Houston routinely hassled by the mob. Actually most the girls are straight. No capes, well written.
Speaking of which, a couple of years ago Disney's updated Daisy for its House of Mouse show. . . .she's now sporting a pony-tail and acts the spunky blonde type. Joe approves. It really helps distinguish her from Minny.
Oh, and the Battle Pope mag was funny. Give roundshort a second and he'll be in here pimping Christopher Moore books.
Also, Slave Labor Graphics is publishing a line of Disney comics that appeal to more grown-up audiences (not that Donald and Mickey are strictly for kids). The best in that line is Gargoyles continuing the animated series from about ten years ago. They're also publishing The Haunted Mansion, Tron, and Wonderland.
Right now, I'm reading Monster. It's a psychological manga, and it's good so far. A doctor in a corrupt German hospital operates on a little boy instead of a VIP and loses his job, then his whole world falls apart.
Yeah. There was also a video game sequel: TRON 2.0
The comic picks up where the video game left off, so there's a bit of a gap for those of us who have only seen the movie. But there's a full text page in the first issue to get us up to speed on what has happened before.

All right, I'll play. I'm currently reading/collecting:
Green Hornet (incl the early 90s comics by NOW as well as the current main line)
Batgirl (New 52)
Darkwing Duck (yes, I know this finished but I always have to wait till the con shows up as the comic store here doesnt carry that title along all the other Disney/Boom studio stuff)
Futurama on occasion
Wonderwoman (on occasion)
Avengers Versus X-Men (Guess who's gonna get their copy signed by Michael Bendis next week!!)
Location: midlothian Illinois just south of chicago
i stopped collecting star wars comics a few years ago and the last comics i bought were the new star wars errant venture series i have picked up the first three books (haven't read them yet) just waiting for some new indiana jones books ?
