So far I'm enjoying it. I'm on #20. I think there's only 55 issues if I'm correct. So far I think it's interesting and pretty humorous. It's not mind-blowing, but I think it's a really good comic.

I'll let you know when I'm all done.

Seriously dude... monkey shit? Seriously. Total bummer.

-- Has anyone watched any of the ComicCon coverage on G4? I watched about 2 hours of it and got about 2 minutes of comic book news. The ComicCon has been totally raped of it's purpose by TV, Movie, and Video games trying to get news.

Just finished 'Y the Last Man.' I have to say it's not mindblowing but a great, enjoyable read. Very Escapist, fun, and humorous, but not so much on the intellectual side. I also thought the revelations of the big secrets were let downs. Great read though, not as cool as 'The Walking Dead.' But I can see how this was once the biggest comic in America.

I'm satisfied. I recommend it. Definitely is worth the time and enjoyable.

I'm going to start reading 'Ex Machina.' It's written by Brian K. Vaughn, the same writer as in "Y The Last Man.' It got great reviews and it just had it's last issue a few months ago.

If you can, I'd suggest 'No Hero' by Warren Ellis. He's probably one of the best comic writers today. 'No Hero' is a serialized graphic novel. Pretty cool shit.

I'm also reading 'Northlanders' by Vertigo, which is about vikings.

I picked up the Crossed TPB this weekend, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Didn't put it down until I finished it!

Also managed to get hold of the first 30 Days of Night TPB so will be going through that this week.

I really enjoyed Crossed. I don't like that they have a new writer creating a new arc for the story. It's not as good as Garth Ennis.

Garth Ennis is a legend. Just ordered the TPB's on Punisher Max that he did (I know, I know... catching up), but we'll see how the new Crossed comes out.

At least they've got a decent starting point.

I also picked up Driver for the Dead (John Heffernan & Leonardo Manco - Radical Comics) this weekend, and it's pretty damn sweet

Just read on Comicbookresources.com about a possible 'Crossed' film, and a new arc written by Garth Ennis.

Yeah... I read the same on the Crossed Wiki today. I've picked up the first two issues of the Family Values arc... Will pass verdict when read!

As for more from Garth, he's on record saying that the world he has created lends it's scope to so many different arcs, and can develop new plots / characters, but that he didn't want to write another one for the sake of it. Here's hoping he's changed his mind!

Film could be interesting...

I thought the first issue of 'Family Values' is totally absurd. Interested in what you think.
