Post Modern comic book thread

Anyone read any of the stuff Avatar puts out? They put out Gravel, No Hero, Crossed, and other brutal comics that just destroy any other mainstream publisher.

If not, what comics are people currently reading?

Last comic was Ambush Bug: Year None. I like super heroes that are not serious. Metal Men are a favorite of mine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.Image

Check out the comic: CHEW by Image.

It's about a cop who is a cibopath (one who gets visual impressions when eating food) who cannabilizes crime victims to find their killers.

Another comic I've been digging is Northlanders: a viking title put out by Vertigo.

They didn't have any issues at the comic shop. I read online they will do a 3rd printing so I will keep a eye out for them.

Yeah the first issue was highly successful. You're able to read the 1st issue for free on Image's website I believe. Image is the publisher of the comic.

I sometimes read SLG comics. I was a huge Marvel fan too until I discovered Metal, then all my money went to CD's and gear for my guitars. I mostly read web comics these days.

DONJON

The english version is called DUNGEON

Very entertaining! Very graphic!
There are 4 (5) different storylines, which all come from the same basic.
The original is about a dungeon (like in D&D) that is stuffed with treasures for willng adverturers to come and get it, but there are also many different creatures and monsters guarding it. All with a twist...

For all those who like Viking-era type stuff, I am currently reading "Northlanders" by Vertigo. I think it's up to issue #22 and the next issue is the last issue of an arc.

Check it out, now would be the perfect time to start getting into it because they're starting a new arc.

Also Reading:

Northlanders
Choker
Cowboy Ninja Viking

The best new series I've found are Choker and Fade to Black, both published by Image and only a couple of issues old. And Frank Frazetta's Dark Kingdom mini series has proved a good read. Also just picked up the first Cold Space too, starring THE MAN, Samuel L Jackson.

Apart from that, I've just been getting video game tie-in's (Army of Two, Dante's Inferno, Modern Warfare: Ghost) and the Supernatural tie-in as my modern stuff.

Chew sounds interesting though :)

'Choker' is really cool.

If you like 'Choker' check out 'Fell' written by Warren Ellis and drawn by the same guy, Templesmith. The art and setting is really similar.

There's only 9 issues of 'Fell' because Warren Ellis lost his flashdrive that the other issues there are. It's supposed to re-start the end of 2010.

Saw a copy of Fell on the shelves today as a collection, but 'twas a bit pricey for my wallet. May have to check it later.

For the laugh, grabbed the first issue of "Whatever Happened to Baron Von Shock" (written by Rob Zombie), and it's actually quite entertaining!

What do you think about 'Choker' so far?

I dig the noir/cyberpunk influence, but I really don't like this whole 'vampire'-supernatural type shit. I think it's making the book kind of 'trendy.'

The latest arc of Northlanders just wrapped up and was awesome!

I was a bit skeptical at first about Choker, but am kinda looking forward to how it turns out with it not being the typical "virus" controlling it.

So far it's been alright though. Good character building (if a little strange in places) and the artwork is superb.

Marvel's adaptation of Dracula has been a welcome addition to my collection, as has the Deadpool: Wade Wilson's War series so far.

The Walking Dead on AMC is going to be awesome.

I've been meaning to read Y-the Last Man- as it got really good reviews. I just started the first few issues after you reminded me about it and love it. It's definitely cool.

tell me what you thought. it was a fun read but the searies didn't come to as big a bang as i thought it would but sorta faded out without a real anti-climax. the last book taking place after the main story is great though :)
