Posted:I need something good to read that has pictures because reading regular books has all the fun sapped out of it by overloaded school time. I've had the SIN series and Sandman series recomended to me by friends, and I'd kinda like some other suggestions for good graphic novels / "comic books" out there.

So... anyone read anything good lately?

Posted:star - you can't miss much dirge news if you check spookyland or slg's website regularly.

not sure about dirge writing under other names but i do know that he wrote some invader zim stuff for nikelodeon smile

and if you ever have trouble getting hold of a comic book in the uk, i can recommend midtown comics - very friendly, established, new york comic shop that does well-packed international delivery (obviously you have to buy a few books to make paying for the postage worth it but they are *very* handy for getting hold of back issues of stuff too so its not hard finding more books to buy! smile ).

Posted:I've been reading some warren ellis recently
transmetroplotian is genius and really funny
he's also writing the current story arc in Ultimate Fantastic Four which is actually really good, nice artwork and it's cheeky without being cute
my favourite alan Mooreis TOP TEN to this day one of the funniest books that I've read.
Anything by COM.X I think they're actually not making anything else,

Bazooka jules is brilliant although it has yet to be finished and is the cause of much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Class War is really good and puncture is pretty weird but the art is great

Posted:yeah man - puncture was wicked!

seriously f*cked up crazy mutant bloodline saviour/reaper kind of deal - with added spikes smile



'to hell' is still my favourite alan moore book - its far and away the best account/theory of the ripper to be found anywhere.



and star, apologies for getting all fanboy on you but i'm going to anyway... wink



you are of course right that vasquez created zim but he didn't write every single episode...

roman dirge wrote the zim episode called 'the wettening' - johen vasquez actually appears in the episode but only so roman can kill him off by having him choke on a goldfish biggrin

p.s. if anyone recognises my avatar and wants more burton-esque humour, then you should search out dirge's "the cat with a really big head" - classic black humour that could easily have been an extended tale from 'oyster boy' ubbrollsmile
