    Archie Comics - Still haven't gotten into the new Riverdale tales, but I will be since I'm finding the show to be a guilty pleasure.

    Harvey Comics - Richie Rich, Casper, Hot Stuff, etc.

    EC Comics - Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror, Haunt of Fear, etc.

    Doctor Who - From the old comics from Marvel to the modern ones by IDW and Titan. Anything with The Doctor is okay!

    Star Wars - I have a large number of the Dark Horse "Legends" comics, but need to get into the new canon books from Marvel.

    Anything Horror Related - Original, movie related, manga, anything. So long as it's horror.

    Sgt. Rock - Best war comic there was, with Unknown Soldier in a close second (I have a crossover book with them, which is awesome), and Haunted Tank in third place.

    Alright, give me some suggestions. I'm always on the lookout for new books!

    "The Hobbit" graphic novel. An extremely faithful adaptation of the book. There were some friends in middle school who didn't want to read The Hobbit, and asked me to help them do a book report on it, as I knew everything about it, and they didn't want the teacher to know that they hadn't read it. Instead, I directed them to the graphic novel, and told them that everything they needed to know was in that book.

    People in some of the Power Ranger groups I'm in go ape sh*t crazy over Boom Comics. The comics sell for alot on Ebay. The covers are nice, but I'm not liking the artwork too much. I'm wondering if I should invest in a few? I use to buy up like Vaults of Horrors, and some Kiss comics. I even have a Megadeth comis sealed, and has a leather cover on it.


    So what I'm asking do I jump on this bandwagon or just say it's a fade and walk?

    I would only say that if you're a Power Rangers fan, go ahead and buy them. I don't honestly know what the resale value is, and I don't buy comics for flipping. Nothing against anyone that does, but most of my collection isn't big price books, outside of some variant covers and a couple of grails. I pretty much buy for reading. I'd say it's most likely a fad, but given the staying power of everything else Power Rangers, it might end up making you some bank if you got a complete run and held on to them for a few years.

    Outside of some Dredd stories, I really know nothing about 2000AD. I've been wanting to pick some up, just to check it out because I know other fans who really dig them. Any suggestions for purchasing?

    Anyone else read any of the Highlander books that Dynamite put out? I picked up the first few issues when they started it up in the early 00s, but monetary constraints made me bow out. What I read was really good.

    The PR fandom is crazy for Boom comics. They buy them and the price goes up cause there's a limited number. I'm just not going to buy into them. I really like the artwork but the value and over pricing is crazy.

    Anyone read this comic?
    I love it. They could make a great tv show out of this.

    2000AD Dan for me. You didn't mess with that incarnation.

    He had been cryogenically frozen, had his face rebuilt, got his command back (unlike Ripley) and said Drokk!! a lot. He had fights with living axes and called his space fortress troops cowards causing them to mutiny and try to kill him. And he ended up with a cosmic claw.

    Actually, now I think of it, he sounds a bit anti social and mad.

    But he still gets my vote.....

    I also liked the later Grant Morrison Dare though.

    Poignant, in a kind of bleak "Quatermass Conclusion" kind of way.....

    You never collected it, but you read one issue and always remembered it!

    From the big publishers to independents who eventually died off.

    From horror to science fiction and everything in between, the only issue you saw of this comic was one you remembered....

    What was it?

    And why do you remember it?

    This is one that I always remembered.

    It seemed to be a load of black and white reprints of American comics, but I have never been sure.

    I don't think it was E.C. comics, but it was certainly cut from the same cloth.

    One story ended with a gang of old ladies who had been gossiping about a young woman and eventually driving her to suicide ending up with their severed heads on spikes!

    I would have lapped all this up, being a Hammer/Universal/Amicus horror fan, but the genesis of these reprints remains a mystery.....

    I know that there were something like three issues altogether, but this is the only one I ever read.

    And never forgot....
