I'm a fan of Garth Ennis and that series seems right up my alley.

Next on my list of series to start is Walking Dead, I'll probably pick up a few volumes next time we go

Kristyrat wrote:Definitely seen Preacher there, was curious to check it out since I'm liking The Boys so much.
Prodigi wrote:I also definitely endorse The Walking Dead. I havn't checked out the TV show because I'm afraid of what Daniel said might be true: they've taken a lot of liberties with it. The comic for me is an amazing piece of fiction that really pumps you up and gets you emotional about things that happen in it. Very well written and executed. I'm a bit behind on the comic these days though
dwchang wrote:To anyone who is watching the show or interested in the comics, go for it. Unlike the typical zombie tropes, Kirkman is writing the Walking Dead in a "what happens for an extended period of time in these situations?" Most movies have a set plotline where at the end a handful of protagonists walk off into the sunset or something. This book is a "well what happens next?" The zombies are also not really a major point. The main point of the book is to show how human beings would react in this hopeless situation and the lengths they'll go to survive. It's mostly an emotional ride rather than a thriller/horror.

Brad wrote:So I finished up the JMS run of Thor. It was indeed very epic and awesome. He did a good enough job of explaining things about past events that I wasn't too lost, but it definitely has made me curious about reading prior Thor stuff to get more of the story (things like Ragnarok and what-have-you). I'm considering checking out the Walter Simonson Thor run, which I've heard very good things about. Where did the story go from there in terms of like, which writer(s) continued the story or what were the arcs titled? The end of volume 3 leaves you kinda hanging since it seems like it's about to get pretty amazing. Made me wish he had continued it on.
