Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s ‘The Ultimates’ has got to be one of my fav’s for sure. It’s one of the comics that got me back into comics about 8 years ago. I can reread those ones and never get bored with them.

Titles: Uncanny X-Force, Ultimate X-Men, Secret Avengers, Harbinger, Red Hood And The Outlaws, and god damn I am really digging Winter Soldier now.

I’m going to go another direction while the boys are jerking all over guys in tights books and say that if you haven’t read “Blankets” by Craig Thompson or “Essex County” by Jeff Lemire, YOU’VE BEEN WASTING YOUR FUCKING MONEY AND YOUR EYEBALLS! JEEEZUS F’ING CHRIST PEOPLE!!!! ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE HAPPY! ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE HAPPYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!
Oh… and the stuff the guys recommended IS really great. Crazy that Winter Soldier is a better book than Cap!!!
Oh yeah. If you like Hellboy/Mike Mignola/BPRD, the two Baltimore trades are fantastic! KILL ALL OF THE VAMPIRES!!! KILL THEM ALLLLL!!!!

Rise, Shawn… RISE!!!
No rope allowed.

Jon was beat up a lot as a child….some of that has to do with Archie being his favourite comic.

If I was beat up as a child… what’re you guys’ excuses?!? Daaaamn… You mothafuckas gotta “RISE”!
July 24, 2012 at 10:34 am
I actually did get beat up as a kid. Thanks guys.

Sounds like I have a lot to read!
My top series of all time has to be Y: The Last Man – I devoured it. I probably reread it every 6-8 months. It’s freaking brilliant and it has resonated with me more than anything else has!
July 24, 2012 at 11:15 am
If you like Y: The Last Man then you need to check out Brian K. Vaughan’s latest series Saga. It’s only a few issues in but damn is it good.
July 24, 2012 at 11:27 am
Been reading it! Jon recommended it awhile ago and I’m absolutely loving it.
EDIT: THERE WAS A NEW ISSUE LAST WEEK GOING TO THE STORE RIGHT NOW

i gotta go with the first few trades of Cable & Deadpool since: a) they were the first i ever bought and b) got me reading weeklies.
also shoutouts to Daredevil #223. it was the first comic i ever read after i found it some nerd’s bookbag that i stole from him. really planted the seed.

I’ve also got to give a shout-out to Scott Pilgrim just because I absolutely love the series. They already got my money once and will be getting it again when the series is re-released in color starting next month.

Also love Scott Pilgrim. I can’t believe how much I laughed at that book, and I saw so much of my awkward self in him. Great read.
July 25, 2012 at 12:19 pm
I bought an advanced copy of it at SDCC and got Bryan Lee O’Malley to sign it. This will be something I try to do with each volume of the re-release.
July 26, 2012 at 9:38 pm
That’s awesome. I already own them all, but it would be super cool to see them in color!

Probably my all-time favourite is TRANSMETROPOLITAN by Warren Ellis!
September 26, 2012 at 11:43 am
I’ve heard nothing but good things about Transmetropolitan. It’s on my list to read, but sadly I haven’t yet!
