Make someone want to read a comic by posting ONE page from it.
That page literally made me bully my FLCS clerk into ordering this book for me. And then I didn't have time to go pick it up for weeks :/
Deadpool Now changed my opinion on Deadpool.
Everything is so serious and then Badger comes into the panel and just breaks the tension
has /co/ ever storytimed the invisibles?
Not the best quality, but the writing helps sell just how great the classic clarmont x-men was
It's The invisibles, It's a grant morrison work and /co/ tends to either love him or hate him ( for the record I love him) but the invisibles is without a doubt his greatest work. It's crazy experimental though, in terms of structure and layout. Give it a shot.
Yeah, I some how missed the actual text saying it was the Invisibles.
Which sort of explains why it's so nutty. I've really only read All-Star Superman, and I guess Multiversity now too. I should probably check it out.
should've posted this page.
In short The JLA essentally lose there powers as each of them gets divided into two beings One with powers and the other only with the memories and experiences of their civilian identities. This culminates when Plastic man is forced to beat THE SHIT out of bruce wayne to prevent him from killing a graffiti artist.
I know this is cheating but here's the second page
>Happiness is poison to comic heroes
>It's actually super easy to wreck people by knocking them out
>Even mass-murdering psychopaths worse than Hitler powered by Lovecraftian monstrosities can be believably redeemed with liberally applied mind control
Carnageman is love. Carnageman us life.
My mom let me read her old old Tales from the crypt comics when i was a kid. They were the first comics I ever read and I am thankful I had the opportunity to experience them. There's nothing like it anymore in the market
Eh, it was interesting read, but it's definitely Ellis at some his least tolerable.
The Stalk is my fetish.
Okay but this looks. Super generic. Like, if it followed some sort of how2 guide like "How to make a noir comic!"
>A cigarette lit in the darkness!
>A motherfucking GUN* shining in the darkness
>A um, shadow, in the darkness?
>Hobo staring out of a ventilation shaft!
* - that doesn't appear to be any actual gun. Does the story happen in some sort of the future/alternate universe or the artist couldn't bother with finding swipe/reference even for a closeup shot?
Invisibles was just Morrison trying to recapture the glory of his Animal Man run.
Invisibles is probably what burned me out on Morrison, I'd seen it all before but better and more nuanced.
Don't know what comic this is, but I'm sure as shit that I want to read it.
What is this? I definitely need more burly shirtless, though wrapped in American flag, black guys murdering aliens with their bare hands in my life.
>Unless the book title actually IS "Cawmicbooks"
Yes. that happens in the comic.
also our hero is a nazi vampire in hell.
the comic is pretty stupid.
but very metal
oh i forgot to mention, that werewolf is Torquemada.
and here's the scene of the templars losing.
Fearless Dawn is about a secret agent and her friend who's basically Betty Page with a tommy gun who fight terrorist fascists and their army of zombie Nazis. It's in a sort of "punk rock Wally Wood style", for lack of a better description. HEAVILY inspired by old EC Comics titles with a little bit of Dave Stevens and maaaaaaaybe Geof Darrows.
The series started with a trio of one-shots that introduced the major characters of the Steve Mannion Universe, then continued with a miniseries, and now is updated around once (or twice at most) per year with one-shots continuing the main character's adventures from wherever the previous issue left off.

Damn, man. Right in the heart.
Okay what is this? I keep seeing that second page posted on /co/ but nobody ever seems to talk about the comic. Is it any good? Because swords and sorcery comics are kind of unknown to me outside of Conan. Will I be disappointed at the sudden cancellation?
Oh, damn it, wrong again. I need sleep.
It's the Dungeons and Dragons comic from IDW.
Just to contribute...
>I did it for the lols, the lols, the lols. I did it for the lols, lols, did it for the lols lols lols.
Not a comic, but an animated movie.
Superman VS The Elite
unfortunately it was linked to WotC's 4th edition promotional budget. Because the sales numbers on that edition was not what they were hoping the comic got axed along with all other related 4th edition projects.
>Okay what is this?
IDW's Dungeons and Dragons
> Is it any good?
Yes. extremely good
The comic and the movie really weren't great, though. Kelly wasn't in a good place while writing AC 775 and it shows, he sounds more like King Solomon in Ecclesiastes than his usual self. He fixed some of the comic's glaring problems in the movie but the core issue remains.
>there's nothing wrong with liking feel good superheroes with a moral code over edgy kill em all types
Absolutely. The problem is that Kelly was parodying/directly addressing the Authority, but created a bunch of characters that were nothing like them.
I mean Chester's one of my favourite new villains of the century, but as what he was intended to be, he's not great. On his own he's rad.
I've never read the Authority, so I couldn't really understand this complaint. Would it have been better if the characters Superman went up against looked completely different than the ones in the Authority? Like, if Manchester Black was a spaniard with ice powers or something, I don't know.
>I've never read the Authority, so I couldn't really understand this complaint
You should, it's got a lot of heart. Or don't, if it's not to your taste. It's a little similar to Squadron Supreme or Miracleman thematically, but tonally it's very Ellis/early 2000 Millar.
Read the Howard the Duck storytime that's up right now.
You kind of missed the point of ONE page, didn't you?
I still need to read through Prince Valiant. I always thought he was supposed to be a Christian 'turn the other cheek, God will see me through' pussy in the vein of Goofus and Gallant until I ran across this page.
If you haven't read ROM, you're wrong.
If Sterenko can't make someone pick up a series, then no one can.
Someone storytimed it and it bit right into my heart. So much awesome, combined with actual story and character depth.
>Crooked house (top left)
>Streets full of eyes (bottom right)
>Mass execution (even more bottom right)
>A swarm of bats (4th bottom right from the middle), a nameless mob of robed figures, misshapen woman with four breasts
>Etc. etc. etc.
>A bald man with glasses being evil (Dr. Sivana)
FUCKING GENTRY! CALL SUPERMAN!
Gerry Duggan: He so rarely lets that mask slip. He is like so many of the sort of tortured comedians that have left this mortal coil, there is the comedy mask hiding his real feelings underneath. We’ve sort of begun to let that slip a little bit. In the most recent issue that’s on the stands, in fact, we made a very sort of literal visualization, I think, of that on our last page. There is a sense that there is an impending doom sort of in his life. It would be like the doom of his choosing. Not a doom of his choosing, but a doom of his own making. Whether or not that plays out – I’m not sure we could say right now.
crap like this is why I hate Punisher
man Inverted Tony is a complete bastard(really hope he'll be back to normal soon, especially if they sweep this whole pile of nonsense under the rug as hard as possible)
