I think The Invisibles is my favorite series I've read so far. Something about how confusing and just kind of a mess as far as plot it is really appeals to me. The constantly changing artists add to that feel, but it's a bit distracting in some parts. At the very least, it's a great look at all the ideas inside Morrison's head and a pretty interesting read.

Grant Morrison is writing a graphic novel about WW and he mentioned that he was trying to use the historical basis for her creation as the background material for what he's writing. Also, it's always interesting to see people like Jill Lepore writing about comic books.

I don't know if I have the patience to actually finish a longer story, but sharing stuff with you guys is good for my motivation.

If anyone has suggestions on drawing noses... I need those suggestions

i don't know if i would call it "underrated" per se but people don't talk about 100 Bullets nearly enough

Azzarello's depiction of american crime is up there with Cormac McCarthy's work imo

@jrisk, not as far as I know. I walk by homeless people wrapped in blankets a lot though, and I've been thinking recently about what it is like to be homeless, especially for a long time---it really comes through in the slow, shuffling movement of those who've got leg or foot problems they can't afford to treat, or maybe just those who have nowhere to go and need to keep on moving so they don't atrophy or get yelled at for staying in the same place for too long. I had bedbugs once in college (grrr) and it made me wonder what would happen if this one guy I walk past often, who's always wrapped in insane amounts of blankets and coats, were to get bedbugs and how much it would SUCK :(((( But yeah, it's fiction.

i'm reading the 2003-2004 Inhumans run and it's awesome. So far there has barely been any Black Bolt but the characters in it are good.

it's basically reflecting america at the time it came out. lots of distrust, fear of different types of people, rejection of other cultures etc. a bit basic, but so far the story is not bad.

Kinda looking forward to the Marvel x Attack on Titan comics (not that I'm a huge comic book reader).

Recently read a few non superhero comics.

Anyone read Sex Criminals, Alex + Ada, or Saga? All I've read so far are the first volumes of each.

A friend is headed off to teach in China. I feel like I'm going to end up doing something similar, probably on the sooner side of things, and it's kind of scary for me to think about, so I think this might be my way of dealing with it.

I really enjoyed reading thru this topic yesterday, especially reading @yoyobeat's sketch comics. I was inspired to make one of my own based on a couple of things, the personal perspective of storytelling in yoyobeat's comics and my memories of the first comic book I ever read: Alan Moore's "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?".

I made a shitty meta-comic about it and against my better judgement, yoyobeat convinced me to post it here.

Spoiler:
Image
Image


My main problem with it is that it doesn't really capture what I wanted to convey... I wrote down what I wanted to say and drew the images separately, and lost a lot of it, feels like a boring mashup of events to me to me now.

Spoiler:
This was actually the first comic book I ever read. I was ten or eleven years old and there was this girl who sat next to me in band, a fellow trumpeter. We were friends, as close as friends can be who only meet once a week. I remember thinking she was strange but cool. She had a lot of energy and even though she held her trumpet the wrong way (which really bugged me for some reason) her enthusiasm was a bit contagious. She lived in the city, and her family was wild. She said that once she had cut her hair short and run away from home, on her own (this may have been a few years later), something I had reserved to daydreams. I was impressed with, and scared of, and fascinated by her...

She lent me the book one day during band rehearsal, I don't think either of us were really that interested what we were supposed to be doing. I was there because I had always been there, my dad was one of the instructors in the organization and I had been in his bands since I was eight. I think her mother was just grateful to keep them occupied for a few hours, a single mom navigating a divorce. I liked music, but I didn't like the music we were playing. I played in that band for a decade.

Anyway, she lent me the book in the middle of rehearsal and I put it in my trumpet case. It, like her, was endlessly interesting, because it was alien. Comic books were one of the many things my parents had forsaken. The book was a bit crumpled from its journey with the trumpet. I smoothed it out and read it in my room that evening.

The book was incredible. I only knew of Superman by reference, and was completely oblivious of Braniac, Lex Luthor, or any of the other characters in the book, so this classic finale was my introduction, a completely self-contained narrative. It was incredible, and I remember thinking about the characters and events long after I had finished it. The fusion of Braniac and Luthor was particularly fascinating to me.

My mother discovered the book and made me return it. I didn't mention that to the girl and gave it back the next week. She asked me if I liked it. I said it was okay.

I wonder what happened to that girl. Her mom remarried this old guy, and I think they went around the country building churches. I hope she still reads comics. I would try to find her on facebook but don't remember her last name.

I opened the comic in my torrent client but nobody is seeding.

Glad you decided to post this! Couple off the cuff ideas for conveying the stuff in your spoiler,

- what if you start the story with you two talking while notes play around you and the instructor (doesn't have to be your dad) says, from off-panel, "Trumpets! You missed your cue again."
- Then in the next panel the music stops; you've got a 'sorry' speech balloon out while stuffing a book in your trumpet case (could use the panel you already have of you putting the book in the case), and there's a narrator box saying something like, "I knew my mom wouldn't approve of the book she'd given me."
- Then in the third panel you might show a profile shot of you playing the trumpet, with a little grin and no words, and you can see her also playing the trumpet in the background / on the other side of your profile.
- Then maybe lead into the same bed panel you have in your comic already, perhaps add a speech or thought bubble, "Brainiac...?"
- Then maybe your mom knocking on the door: "Name! Dinner's ready! / Where's the remote? / etc." and you rushing to hide the forbidden book that you're reading.
- Then your "this finale was my classic introduction" panel
- Maybe your mom making a comment about "comic garbage" she saw on the news while you sit at the dinner table. I feel like making this tension between a parent and child of what is valuable could be a good theme to focus on

etc.? Just random thoughts trying to add more elements of your spoilered text, by no means the way you should do it or anything.

Keep making more man!

yoyobeat draw a comic of me trying to get a perfect waywt picture w/my internal dialogue that takes a divergent path along how internet fashion even prizes the appearance of something over the actuality even more than traditional fashion used to.

wanna get this thread back up and going. Anyone else read comic books? I just got into the medium and I gotta say I'm loving it. Between viewing and pirating comics online it seems that comic books are more accessible than ever. I started with some horror (Locke & key, Spread, Outcast, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) but at the suggestion of my friend who is a major comic book junkie I started The Invisibles and I am totally loving it. Think I'll check out more 90's stuff from Vertigo like Sandman and Preacher when I'm done with this school year.

What are other folks reading?
