dsrchris 190 Posted October 8, 2010 Share Posted October 8, 2010 EXCELSIOR!! Welcome, true believers, to the comic book thread!! A place where we can discuss all things comic orientated! Read something that you have to tell everyone about? Seen some amazing artwork? Heard a tasty tidbit of comic news? Itching to argue over just who would win out of a fight between Spiderman and Silver Surfer? Then post it here people, and we shall discuss it to nerdishly woman repelling lengths!! :xyx Being as I'm on my phone, I'll just leave a couple of reccommends for the time being: The Walking Dead The Walking Dead is centered on Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse, most notably Rick's. In the beginning of the series, Rick and partner Shane are in a firefight and Rick is shot and enters a coma. Upon waking in a hospital, he discovers the undead are in the building and town. Rick returns home and shortly decides to go to Atlanta, where the survivors were told to await help, to find his wife Lori and son Carl. He discovers the city is crowded with zombies and bumps into Glenn, a scavenger for a band of survivors. Following Glenn, Rick discovers Lori and Carl are okay along with Shane, who is less than happy that his former partner has returned. He also meets new survivors. Yeah it's a zombie comic, but it's so much more than that. Survivors from a zombie outbreak go through all kinds of craziness as their community falls apart. Well worth jumping on the bandwagon now before the TV show hits our screens at Halloween. Invincible Invincible (Mark Grayson) is a superhero in the Image Comics Universe. Created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Cory Walker, the character first appeared in Tech Jacket #1 (November 2002), before graduating to his own self-titled regular series in 2003, as a title in Image's then-new superhero line. Invincible is the teenaged son of Omni-Man, an extraterrestrial superhero of the Viltrumite race. Invincible inherited his father’s superhuman strength and ability to fly and he has sworn to protect the Earth. He has had trouble adjusting to his newfound powers and coping with the reality of his origins. Starts out as a standard supehero story, but spirals out into a much larger story. This book has had me hooked for 77 issues, and doesn't show any sign of letting up. The Boys The series is set in a contemporary world very much similar to the real one, with one notable exception: a number of people have some form of superpower. The series follows a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "The Boys", whose job it is to keep watch on superheroes and, if necessary, intimidate or kill them. Ennis has said that the series will "out-Preacher Preacher", presumably referring to the extreme violence and sexuality that were that series' hallmark. Ennis has recently stated that the series may last up to 70 issues. If you read one thing this year (and next year, and the year after that) then read The Boys. Seriously. I'm a hopeless fanboy for Preacher, and this takes the humour, violence, and morality of Preacher and transposes it to the superhero genre. Welcome to a world where the superheroes are the biggest a*sholes on the planet, and when they get out of hand?? Well...then you call in The Boys.
