So, what comics have you pursued and what comics have you finished? I have been reading webcomics, but I will allow any type of comic to be discussed here. I have been passively pursuing Cyanide and Happiness (the comics) because I saw the /co/ recommendations. Overall, it's not that funny and I think the videos that are made are better because they have a good twist at the end. I recommend the comics onlyi if you want to pursue a big comic site like Cyanide and Happiness that has a large following already. There must be over 3,000 individual comics though. The second (web) comic I have been reading is Whomp! The reason being was because it was also recommended and I find the main character to be identical to many people I find on wizardchan. He has no social skills and is has many regrets. He could be relate-able to a lot of people from other chans too because he has the cursed beta attitude and is obese. If you haven't seen the /co/ recommended list for webcomics, here it is. There are many recommended lists by the way.
Just downloaded the entire Groo collection I loved these as a kid, but finding them was hard. Now I can finally fulfil my dream. Did you ever read Groo. Do you like it?
https://youtu.be/IwfUnkBfdZ4 Tell me something Off topic /co/ Judging by this trailer, is the plot of this movie respectful of source material? I'm not a huge /co/ guy, I've read some original x-men, some batmans like Hush, Arkham asylum and a little more, so tell me: does this movie have any bad premises that offend you as a /co/ fan so far?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3DWn2OPwvM I honestly feel like they edited the dialogue way too much to really qualify this as a proper adaptation of Alan Moore's fantastic story. What do you guys think?
Invader Zim comic from Oni Press? I've always wondered what the status of the IP since the show's cancellation. Does Nickolodeon own it or Vasquez? We'll see soon enough.
Frank Miller just announced a new Sin City http://comicbook.com/2015/10/09/frank-miller-announces-new-sin-city-series-at-new-york-comic-con/ >"Oh yeah," he said when asked if he had more work planned after his contributions to Dark Knight III. "My next book is set, I'm working on it now, in fact. It's a Sin City, a love story set against the backdrop of World War II."
Hey /co/ I have a couple long boxes filled with comics, most with protective backs and sleeves How would I see these? Some are rare-ish, but most are something like $0.99-$2.99 Should I sell them over ebay or something? My local comic store?
I have this feeling that I have posted this already... but I checked /pc/ and the EVE thread there is empty of this. Anyways, here's a "comic" version of that thing that happened on EVE years ago that made EVE turned it into one of the best MMOs to date.
Bitcoin - The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto https://www.bitcoincomic.org/ https://www.comixology.com/Bitcoin-The-Hunt-for-Satoshi-Nakamoto/digital-comic/169959
HARD BOILED Time for some cool art with shit story. I seriously think that Frank Miller won an Eisner award for Best Writer with this purely because of the balloting mix up back in 1990. Or maybe it was a slow year for comic books back then. Or maybe they just give that shit to anyone. Still, it's an enjoyable read.
New 52 I'm going through the catalog, picking whatever I fancy. I hope this is decent at least. If you read this, what's your favorite New 52 run so far? A lot of people hate how busy the costumes seem to be but I like 'em. Then again, I am max pleb to comics in general.
EMPIRE by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson An interesting cape comic that tells the story of Golgoth, a supervillain who won his war against... well everyone, I guess, and the building of his empire. It only has seven issues but was recently resurrected online by its creator when they acquired the rights back.
ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY'S THE BORGIAS The corruption of the catholic church is such a romantic setting when viewed from afar. With "The Borgias", Jodorowsky pits history with a pint of inaccuracy concerning the legitimate Original Gangsters of yore of the same name. As if the real story needed any embellishment! But considering the fact that this was also painted by one of the best erotic painters in the medium today: Milo Manara, I guess that can be forgiven. A little fanservice here and there isn't bad when it looks as pretty as this.
New Vegas: All Roads This comic served as an introduction to the world of Fallout New Vegas, originally released as part of the collector's edition of the game. Penned by Chris Avellone himself with the help of several different artists. Wish they made more.
So no discussion of this? I never liked comics much, but after reading, I had a great appreciation for them. The bit about how abstraction = universality really resonated with me. Easily one of the best books I've ever read.
ITT I will be dumping XIII by Jean Van Hamme This series is a spy thriller that began in 1984 about a man who awakens with amnesia, remembering not even his name and his only clue is a tattoo of XIII on himself. In seeking the memories of his past he eventually finds himself caught up in a dangerous conspiracy plot You might have heard of this from the Ubisoft game of the same name, or the two live action adaptations it got. There are a variety of releases for it, but your best option is buy the Cinebook release: http://www.amazon.com/Day-Black-Sun-XIII-Cinebook/dp/1849180393/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421470668&sr=1-1&keywords=XIII http://www.cinebook.co.uk/index.php?cPath=187
L' Histoire Secrète (The Secret History) by Jean-Pierre Pécau is one of the coolest historical/adventure epics I've had the pleasure of discovering while delving into English translated French comics. It is the third epic in the "Univers des Arcanes", first being Arcane Majeur (Major Arcana or Arcane Major) and Arcanes as the second. Don't let that scare you off though, as they're pretty much self-contained. The Secret History is about 4 powerful near-immortal siblings that has shaped known history around the world through their desire to survive and guide mankind to what they deem as a better future for all. Knowledge of history isn't needed but it'll enhance your enjoyment of the books if you still remember your grade-school history lessons.
Hey /co/, what are some animated movies based of comic characters that you consider a must see? Things like Return of the Joker and so on picture unrelated

Congratulations on becoming featured, after all the content dumps you deserve it /co/min.
Comic Requests thread. Request comics here at /co/r/. Requesting any, if not all Steven Universe comics if anyone has them.
AFTER THE CAPE I like cape comics but only if they have a twist as I think everything that needs to be said has already been said before in the genre. This is why I like stuff like Garth Ennis' "The Boys" despite some questionable direction it often took (it was still a satisfying read though). Howard Wong's "After the Cape" is like a more mature version of Pixar's The Incredibles only this time, it focuses on a very flawed protagonist and the story can get pretty sappy at one point. It isn't ground breaking (what is nowadays, anyways?) but I love the monochromatic art, specifically how the shadows shape the entire panels. Reminds me of some of Jack Kirby's black and white double-page spreads minus the extra detail, of course.
I know I said I was going to post something japanesey but I looked at my stuff and they're fucking 200 pages or more each. Nigga, I ain't storytiming that shit. Anyways, here's Boichi's "Hotel since AD 2079" or simply "Hotel". He's a manhwa artist but published this particular work in Japan so... that makes this technically manga? I dunno lol but whatever. Enjoy, it's pretty cool and short.
SCENE OF THE CRIME: A LITTLE PIECE OF GOODNIGHT One of the gems I've picked up long ago. Nothing fantastic but nothing bad either. If you liked old school mystery novels like those of Raymond Chandler's then you'll probably like this. Written by Ed Brubaker, and art by Michael Lark and Sean Phillips.
