The invisibles is particularly awesome to be reading given the year we're in...

^i know! i haven't started it yet because it's such a big ass bitch, i'm going to wait until i read the other books
DD 17 was cool...mainly a flashback and probably one of the weaker issues in the series so far, but still good
have you read any grendel or love and rockets? they seem like your type of shit

There are some bits where the art is not as good as other parts (the artists alternate on almost every though phil jiminez draws alot of it and he's quality), but the overall story is fantastic, the ideas are fascinating, the characters are interesting, there's some genuinely weird and creepy scenes/dialogue...even though i guess it's dated now since there are references and scenes in 2012 (and the technology and social evolution is still far beyond where we are now), i still highly recommend it.
by the time i finished it, it was definitely firm in my top 10 favorite comics series of all time, and just you asking me about makes me want to read it again (it took me like 2.5 months to read it initially)
damn, this thread has been dead for a hot minute.
The last 2 volumes of Scalped were cool, although it seemed like Aaron was rushing towards the conclusion, particularly in Volume 10. I need to marathon through that whole series soon.
What is everyone reading these days? I read Nexus Omnibus Vol. One, and that is boss; weird 80s scifi quasi-superhero series, think intergalactic Punisher guided by his dreams if he was a genius, had a girlfriend and actual friends. Orc Stain and King City are also dope, and I think people should check out. Brandom Graham, the artist/writer of King City also has a mini series 'Multiple Warheads' which is awesome. His art's like this incredibly hybrid of Moebius, Vaughn Bode, and Masamune Shirow
and his covers are usually sick
I'll post up the books I've gotten recently that I need to read when I get home.
KZA, do you post at CBR?

Nah I don't post there, I occasionally post at the Masterworks board; the people there are more well informed and people involved in the collections actually post there...one of the guys who put together most of the recent x-men omnibus stuff es of classics (inferno, mutant massacre, claremont/lee vol 1-2, fall of the mutants, x-force) is a regular there.
Most of the CBR people in their Omnibus threads have terrible taste, or post masturbatory nonsense imo...which makes it like wu-corp, except you can't tell people to shut the fuck up or you'll get banned) I think there is someone named Pandemic posting in there, though...I lurk to see when shit is coming out.
Oh yeah, so one of the shops in jacksonville was having a massive sale on their collections so they could stay open and I snapped up a bunch of stuff for about 100 bucks...the two marvel books, hellboy, crisis on infinite earths and the incal were used but everything else was brand new and I'm set on reading material for a hot minute.

yeah reddit can be annoying, most of my friends swear by it
Are you going to get the 70s JRJr Iron Man Omnibus? I'm thinking about it
Definitely going to get the UXM Omnibus when the reprint comes out
