I haven't seen one of these in a while, so have it.

I'm waiting on Copra Round 3 to come in, then Grayson, and then in February Kaijumax and a bunch of DCYou vol 1s (Prez, Midnighter, Martian Manhunter)

Rec me if you want

These came in today. The Venom minicomics are pretty cool. I like Zacchilli's art. Very raw. It came with some stickers and a postcard as well. The Shaolin Cowboy book was crazy. I've never seen so much zombie dick and vag. Die Wergelder is another book that I cannot lend out to people.

I wonder if Kodansha would be ballsy enough to put out Samura's BDSM art book if Die Wergelder does well enough.

I probably wouldn't buy it but it would be interesting to see the reaction of that art book being released in North America.
>>
>>79027372
its the only one i'm interested in for the class
the rest of the reading list is fun home (one of those indie autobio comics about being a lesbian), twilight los angeles 1992, and the two to kill a mockingbird books. I consider myself to be pretty progressive but teacher is literally white guilt 40 year old sjw trying to entrench herself into black culture and it really shows in her reading list
>>
>>79027631
They'd have to have balls the size of planets to publish that. I probably wouldn't buy it either. Samura's art is gorgeous, but I like my sadism with a side of plot like Bradherley's Coach next.

What's the paper quality like in those white Marvel NOW hardcovers? Is it super thin? Or thicker than single issues? How is the binding? Glued or sewn? I've never looked inside them, but am thinking of picking up Aaron's Thor Vol 1 and Fraction's Hawkeye Vol. 1.

>>79037129
How would you rate Lazarus as a series out of ten? How would you rate that hardcover edition. I love Rucka most of the time. I liked the first issue, but didn't keep up with it. Should I pick it up collected?

And can you sell me on Seeley's Revivial series? My interest is piqued, but am not sure if I should make the investment.

it's the same paper in the TPBs, I believe (so yes, thicker than singles) and it's sewn. At least that's what I remember on my Superior Spider-man HCs [which, admittedly, I don't ave with me right now]

Actually I have Noel on order as well, no idea when it's supposed to arrive. Honestly I'm finding the series kind of meh, I don't have a colossal hardon for steampunk like some people do and the art feels very digital-webcomic tier. If the whole thing was in a bold monochromatic style like the covers are I'd probably love it.

But to answer your question I haven't so I can't really say

You actually kind of did. Talbot has done work over a number of styles, and I was wondering whether this was less genre oriented than something like Luther Arkwright. His famous book is that one about getting molested as a child or something; as "artistic" as that may be, I don't really go for things like that. So thanks, I guess.

That's understandable, you cant tell the difference between good comics and bad comics yet.
>>
>>79044563
Yeah it's only $55 on IST, which just seems absurd.
>>
>>79044488
I'm so sorry anon.
Honestly, it's on the better end of Slott's work, and I started with Spidey when I first tried getting into comics.
That was just before OMD, and it killed all interest in the hobby for a number of years.
Either way, Marvel is good for starting out, on the single fact that they use recap pages. DC's a bit uneasy to recommend for beginners, as Nu52 the concept of the Multiverse take some getting used to. Just avoid Bendis and Hopeless, and I'm sure you'll be fine.

Pick up the pre-Secret Wars trades of Ms. Marvel before you get the new issues.

Good decision. Spock is varied in quality, but good choice in what you're looking into. Ms. Marvel starts up before SW, so that's where you should head. There's a HC of the first 2 volumes out if interested. Also try Spencer's Ant-Man and Superior Foes of Spider-man (the latter is getting an Omnibus next month.)
Also recc Deadpool (Don't read Daniel Way. The Gerry Duggan run is how I got back into comics) and Superman: American Alien (ignore the shitposter, it's an interesting take on Superman mythos)

I think that's always been a thing, advanced search is broken since forever so only the basic search works. Your problem might be because of the language you used, I clicked the English button and that versions frontpage is simply not working.

>>79051401
What's the difference between this edition and the absolutes?
>>
>>79051450
Absolutes are Bigger Omnibuses are Fatter

Is generally the distinction.
>>
>>79051450
2 oversized omnibus volumes. Nice quality with little to no gutter loss. Haven't acutally read the Absolute versions but there are 5 volumes for almost the same price. They are taller but have fewer pages.
>>
Absolutes are for if you really like the art in a book

Modern Omnibuses are typically for crazy people.

If I'm interested in getting Morrison's Batman, are the Absolutes of the parts of his run worth picking up or should I just get the smaller softcovers?
>>
>>79065427
It depends entirely on how much you like the art for those parts.

You should only ever get absolutes if you absolutely love the art in the book.
>>
>>79065427
The absolutes if you can afford it.
They have redrawn pages and extra content that's really worth the cost.

And real sexual quality binding/pages

Currently hunting down all of Hulk visionaries Peter David. Volume 5 is white whaling me.
>>
>>79066676
>>79066703
Thanks! I was wondering about the extras!

As for the art, I loved Quitely's on Batman & Robin, as well as Philip Tan's, even though everyone else seems to dislike his style. Flamingo was a favorite character of mine from the second B&R arc with Red Hood.

Then in Incorporated, Paquette had some impressive work.
>>
>>79066728
>>
>>79066676
This reminds me: when DC announced Absolute Preacher, I wondered why everyone on various baords said they were excited for that.

Preacher is my favorite Vertigo title ever and I truly appreciate Dillon's art, but getting this in Absolute format? Doesn't make sense to me. Especially since I agree with you about Absolutes and getting them for the art.
>>
>>79066744
They need to get to the end of David's run on Hulk. I loved that year's worth especially. I want it collected.

Bought these in my last to Buenos Aires.

I've been wanting to get into Corto Maltes for years, and this collection seems perfect for it. I'll buy the others if I like it. There were like 10 numbers in the bookstore.

Also bought the second part of Perramus. The 1st one was very nice.

And Etchenike, which turned out to be a comic-version of an already existing detective novel, but I didn't enjoy it much.
>>
>>79070515
simonson himself was very disappointed
>>
>>79071751
That's mostly because the backup pages aren't in publication order though, right? Or was there another issue?
>>
>>79071955
yeah, because it probably won't get reprinted in another form he was upset that they shoved them all in the back when they follow up on the issue they were in so people won't read as he intended it to be read
>>
>>79071989
that's a shame, you'd figure they could at least fix it if there was another printing

didio said that they would fix it if it ever got a paperback but seeing as they can't even keep the jack kirby stuff in print I doubt that'll ever happen

Thanks. What are you reading these days? Gotham By Midnight ended and now I'm sad
>>
>>79067969
Smorgasbord is much higher quality but I started with the Omnivore editions so I know they are great also. Chew is my favorite series so I am dedicated. For me it was the fact that I would only need 3 Smorgasbord editions versus 6 omnivore editions.
>>79072727
I meant the quality of the book itself and not the story. Girls deluxe edition is one of the nicest books I have ever owned.

>>
>>79075993
Everyone at the shop reads Insexcts. It's the only Aftershock book we have to reorder. Weird stuff.

I like to spread out my reading to a little of everything. Don't know if you're missing out if you don't try it!
>>
>>79075831
How is The Shield? I like the art.

What is Dreaming Eagles and Black Hood?
>>
>>79076091
Shield is a waaayyyy old character some people consider the original idea for Captain America. Guy wore a big ass shield on hours chest, kinda goofy.
New shield is the first girl shield appears invulnerable and immortal. Goes back to line 1776 with her. Seems interesting so far.

Black Hood is CRAZY.
Dark book about a cop gets his face blasted and gets on pills and starts beating up criminals on pills for pills.
Real sad violent guy. Used to be a hero on the police force.

Dreaming Eagles is a young guy who is almost pro black panther in his thinking, almost (1966 civil rights era) and wants to march with mlk.
His father appears to be one of the first African American ww2 fighter pilots and flashbacks to being in the war. Wants to protect his son and doesn't seem to agree with too aggressive civil rights movement (what he determines to be dangerous to his family)
>>
>>79076303
SOLD. On all three. Is that Dynamic comics?

>>79076340
Black hood and Shield are Dark Circle and Dreaming Eagles is Aftershock

Got a bunch for Xmas and ordered a few books from amazon.ca, it sucks we dont have many options for online ordering but at least amazon has a decent discount on most stuff, and all my books arrived just fine, no damage or anything.

New stuff is

GotG v1 and 2
Man without fear
Atomic Robo
BPRD v4
Fear Agent
Batman: Doom that came to gotham

Should I get the deluxe New Frontier or the Absolute New Frontier?
>>
>>79078530
>>79078530
that's beyond fucked up. i would have laid into that guy about how shitty his dying business must be to throw all customer service out the window in a desperate and angry attempt to coerce people into buying his merchandise. i'd ask for a refund too but i doubt it would happen.

this is just another example of why i have no sympathy for comic book shops going out of business. run correctly this never happens.
>>
>>79083302
I think at one point the Absolute was like 30 bucks on Amazon, no idea if that's still even there but I would just get the Deluxe because iirc it has more content

Reading since 1992, collecting trades since 2002, give or take. Thanks for the props, it really is just a matter of slowly but surely buying each book, and before you know it they start looking like a library.

That Contract with God trilogy looks nice and enjoyable. May have to look into that.
>>
>>79087542
It's a really good book, physically and content-wise and it's pretty important historically for the medium, especially western comics. I'd say it's a must-have even though some bits of it are wooden with the primitive storytelling style.

Got these from my dad a couple weeks ago. He sent them to me from New Zealand. It's feels like a farm version of Garfield, but with the charm of Calvin & Hobbes.

Reading up on the series, there's 27 volumes, and he snagged the first 12 + volume 15. It's out of print and hard to find.

Geat stuff. Just to rehash, those Hellboy LEs are going out of print soon, so might be worth a splurge before they become impossible to buy at a reasonable price.

Speaking of going out of print, I saw this on BC:

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2016/01/15/marvel-clears-out-omnibus-stock-infinity-gauntlet-to-young-avengers/

Does anyone know any retailer that actually cuts the prices on these things?
>>
>>79096696
Mmmaybe if Half Price Books gets their hands on these...

Over the holidays I saw a bunch of DC books for 50% off and higher. I think they went through the same warehouse emptying process Marvel seems to be going through.

Otherwise? I don't have any LCS in my area that would cut the costs.

Slowly making my way through the Udon artbooks I got from IST. Okami and Breath of Fire are pretty good. That Art of HC is damn thick and for some reason I thought there would be less Street Fighter but nope it's over half the book. Now I gotta flip through Y's.

The girlfriend got me this comic called Saltire for Christmas, its about a Scottish immortal during pivotal moments of Scotland's history. It's not bad actually.

I have the first issue somewhere and I think a few other issues. I always wanted to own the full set plus the maxi that followed a few years later. Kirby's art is some of my favorite.

Honestly, as muuch as I loved discovering Tom King in 2015 (Vision and Omega Men are each the best book by their respective company), I gotta say Transformers vs GI Joe rocked my world. I'm not a fan at all of either property, but damn if that isn't the most comic booky comic book that's being made right now. The layouts, the art, the visual shorthand, everything. It's just a fantastic example of why comics aren't visual novels, or cartoon storyboards, and at their best are essentially untranslatable into any other medium. I know, no one is more shocked to be saying that abot goddamn Transformers vs GI Joe than me.

'that shit' happens to look better than most books that come out.

But you are probably right about their reasoning, also you win no favors from fans for doing shit like clamping down on that stuff. They wouldn't really care until it became something like the doujin market in Japan.
