Do you read comics other than Indiana ones?

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 didn't get into comics until college. I followed the beginning and end of Gen 13. Now it's just Strangers in Paradise, which ends next year.

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.

The Watchmen is the greatest comic book series in the history of the universe.

Prove me wrong.

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.

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.

I read Lara Croft:Tomb Raider comics, Star Wars, MAD magazine's Spy vs Spy, X-men on the odd occasion and even Wonder Woman.

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.

Wikipedia offers a pretty competent write-up on The Watchmen, which provides a good overview of the series. For a more in-depth look, here's a link to one of several annotations of all twelve issues.

I read Aku Ankka in English. (Along with Mickey Mouse and Uncle Scrooge) http://www.gemstonepub.com/disney/

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.

Tron is one of the comics I'm reading from Slave Labor Graphics, and I have to say I'm really enjoying it and I'm looking forward to the next issue.

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.

Wasn't Tron a Disney movie?

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.

The Raven Comic Book Thread

I ran a search and looked through several pages to see if this had been done before and all I came up with was a New 52 thread.

So here's to hoping this become a popular comic book thread.

I know you comic geeks are out there.

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)
Ducktales
Futurama on occasion
Wonderwoman (on occasion)
Avengers Versus X-Men (Guess who's gonna get their copy signed by Michael Bendis next week!!)
