I think a comicbook thread would be comfy. Let's talk about comicbooks, and comic-book related media!


Oh, I have some of my father’s old Superman comics

You guys probably know for certain about the Death of Superman, but I like how they played around with the concept of “replacing him” for a bit. Haven’t read any modern comics, so I can’t compare, and mostly will make assumptions, but I wanna express my love of how they handled it then.


That sounds great!


Sorry, it’s taking me a while to find them

I don’t have as much free time as I used too


I understand! There's no need to rush.


Anyone watch the joker movie yet? If so, how was it?
Anyone watch the venom movie?
I saw the venom movie, cgi was great, story was a bit shakey, over all, 8 out of 10. I LOVE it and i can't wait for the sequel. (I love the fact that eddie was an absolute mess, you know. A regular guy freaking out, jumping in a lobster tank, grimy looking with no time to change to expencive clothing. Just your regular, symbiote possessed average Joe)
Great comic book anti-hero too.
Anyone gonna watch the Crisis on Infinite Earths television event?
How do guys feel about
personally, after all the weird pollitical stuff, i'm tired of modern comicbooks.
Whenever i get the chance, i'm gonna read my first comic book: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
Haven't read it in years, and i might talk about it here after i read it..
I forgot i just read several comicbooks about the silencer, great new dc character by the way, gread series.
Another question i have is : what is your favorite comicbook character?


I still haven't seen it yet. The reason is because I never have anyone to go with. People are always busy.
I'd go alone, but I've never gone to the movies without someone, and going alone just seems weird.


It's not weird




Umbrella academy, and it's netflix adaption is pretty good.
Ninjak (2016) is another great comicbook series.

Comics were pretty good in the mid 80s to early 90s. After that they pretty much turned to shite. Nowadays they're pretty much just SJW garbage 24/7.

All the great stuff - Miller Daredevil/Batman, Watchmen, Sandman, TMNT, etc. etc. etc. is all from that time period.


(I'll post resources to everything below)
As we all know, as the times became politically extreme, comicbooks seems a little less fun to read. Well how does a newfag or even an oldfag getting into comicbooks, Well, get into comicbooks again?
Dont buy comic books. Or grapic novels.
Only buy stuff that you like. If the comic book is priced more higher then a dollar, then it's a ripoff. Why? Because comic book companies started to reprint older comicbooks, which lowered the value. Of course, knowing the GDR system helps.
Grapic novels arent a great deal either. Why? They can put only so much stuff into it, so they might take out comicbooks, and youll miss the full story. Do reasearch into what your going to buy.
Best way to read comicbooks is to go online, or to a library.
I would reccomend that you read by a character by character basis. I.e find a character that your interested in, and start with the first comic book he/she appears in, all the way to the last comicbook. You know, the 1940s onwards. And if it splinters off to another character, and if you like it, keep going onwards.
And finally,
Study the writers, companies, editors, other people connected to the comicbook.


Couple of youtube links if you want to watch vidya instead of reading. Still looking for more, this is what i found so far:
>pretty good guy, covers comicbooks, and controversies from 2014, and upwards.
>he knows whats up. Explains why modern media sucks. Mythology teacher. Likes gettting in to deep discussions about comicbooks.
>WARNING these guys are shills. Only watch if you have strong bullshit dectecting skills.but at the same time, they cover pretty much every single comicbook out there.
>for a deeper understanding of the genre.


I hope, in some way, i helped.
>Comics were pretty good in the mid 80s to early 90s
Man, that justice league run was awesome. Hell, everything with Guy Gardner in it was awesome.


Whoops, not gdr, CBCS rating system

Remember when nick fury said in the winter soldier movie :
>The last time i trusted somebody, i lost an eye.

But it turns out the idiot lost his eye to a cat.


that'll teach him to fuck around with cats


You h8 the cat,
You get the bat


I don't want to spoil anything, but i would HIGHLY reccomend reading scott snyders run of batman. Great for batman newfags. I love the whole "court of owls" story arc. Very iconic if you ask me.
