I'm starting to discover that a lot of people here like to read American Comics too ( especially X-Men ) so if you'd like to talk about these comics and possibly where to get them as well, shoot. I'm a long time reader of American Comics myself, both Marvel and DC, so I'll help however I can with any questions you guys may have
EDIT: Now that we have an American Comics subforum, this is now the place where you just want to talk about American Comics in general and not the latest releases. If you want to do that, please do that in the Latest Releases Mega Convo. This way we can avoid spoiling anybody with what happened in the latest issues.

some good shit can be found in American Comics. I can wait to see how Civil War plays out and for the record, batman>superman
Check out 300 by Frank Miller (you know Sin City *g*).
It's the story of the Battle of Thermopoly, where 300 Spartan Greeks held out against a 100k (exactly, 100 000) Persian army for three whole days before getting annihilated. It's amazing how Miller takes the historical facts and makes an incredible story out of it. Ancient history combined with Miller's own "graphic novel noir" style - you mustn't miss this
The art is amazing as well,of course
I'm sure you'll find it via Emule or on some torrent site, and you can order it, of course.
I used to collect quite a lot, mainly Marvel comics but you can read some online at
I was learning about greece in a course and i learned, again, about the battle of the 300 Spartans. I really want to read the comic before i see the movie. It shoudl make a good movie now that i think about the story
I've seen that on the shelves at my local bookstore - it does look good. I'll have to consider it. BIG book though O_OOriginally Posted by asmo
Marvel used to actually host that comic at their website, but they probably don't anymore - still, I think Ultimate Spidey was the first comic I ever read online. It didn't really take for me though, but I may have just been too much into the "original" Spidey at that time. Because the original Spidey comics are kinda sucky right now, though, I might check into Ultimate Spidey.Originally Posted by Ulquiorra
But as far as Bendis books go, I still enjoy Daredevil more (or used to).
But overall I think comics in the 70's, 80's and early 90's are still a lot better than today's comics. I just bought a stash of old Uncanny X-Men comics the other day at my store, covering Inferno, The Mutant Massacre, and so on ^^ Good stuff.
old uncanny was so good.
I know the comics at the time sucked but I loved joe Mad's work on the line. His artwork is probably one of the reasons i became a comic fan
Joe Mad did have a very flashy drawing style. Unfortunately I also think Joe Mad's popularity was one of the reasons Marvel became all style, no substance for most of the late nineties... but that wasn't his fault.
I need help finding the rest of the Fathom/Witch Blade/Tomb Raider cross-over (Michael Turner, Top Cow). I have vol.1, but shortly after i came back to my home town and no one here sells it. It came out a few years ago. I also heard rumours that Michael Turner was unable to finish the story arc due to health reasons. Aaaaaargh! I just want to know how the story arc finishes.Originally Posted by Gold Knight
I...I...you're not fair, Ken-chan. T_________TQuote:
The older Uncanny ones are much more better than the recent ones.
Still, I buy only Uncanny X Men nowadays due to my fave charas being there. I'd rather the Ultimate story, but it gets tiring some time or the other. XD
@okyatoks: can't seem to open the link. do i have to type in a password into the web address? btw do you know where i can find Fathom comics? by Michael Turner, Top Cow
'Fraid I can't really help you there, Brede, I never even heard there was a crossover between ALL these three femme fatales, even though I'm a Witchblade fan. Sorry =/
Edit: Looks like you're looking for Fathom #12-14 ( a series I never read, so figures I didn't know about it ) by what I can determine looking up Wikipedia, unless you already have that in the volume you got. According to Wikipedia, though, it doesn't seem like another crossover has occured so if there's been a second team-up, it must be new.
Yeap yeap, I'm looking for #12-14 starring those 3. Sorry for the confusion when I described them as a cross-over Seems like Fathom is now with Aspen (Michael Turner's own company) and a 2nd team has taken over from Top Cow. My friend pointed me to their web site. Now all that remains is to hunt down the actual comicsOriginally Posted by Gold Knight
@ GK: Are you still collecting Witch Blade? I stopped after 30...the story-line started sounding a bit like X-Files. Who has taken over the art work now? If you liked Witch Blade, I think you'll like Fathom as well. Give it a try
