About this comic

You start talking smack, Bruce ain’t havin’ any.

Also, I am kinda done with hero books for a while. The capes and cowls are just not doing it for me lately. Lots of independent books are, however, so I continue down the path of the happy comic book reader.

  1. I have a similar point of view, but more with continuity driven books than strictly hero ones. I still collect Ultimate Spider-Man and the new SHIELD series, but am more than happy paying more attention to Hellboy, Fables and Invincible

    Was never a great capes and cowls fan, more into Judge Dredd, although Batman held some interest. If you are truly sick of the capes have a look at “The Boys” series by Garth Ennis (WARNING:- VERY adult humour) where the capes get a damn good kicking ๐Ÿ˜€

    Wow, Scott, even your much favored Indy super hero “Invincible”? Cuz that series is starting to really ramp up the awesome. And invincible Iron Man is still awesome.

    But yeah I can’t deny how great stuff like the walking dead has become in recent years.

    You nailed his brain short circuit hand gesture.

    Good on ya, Scott.
    I too made the move- rather than following a specific book/hero, I just follow writers.

    Care to share with us the indis that you find interesting? Iยดm looking for something good to read and DC and Marvel are not delivering any…..

    The last panel with just “Hehe…” in it made me LOL ๐Ÿ˜›

      Don’t you mean “hee hee” instead? “He” only refers to a male person, “hee” refers to laughter.

        At the moment I am busy deaicrtong the room for my new baby girl (expected in November!). The basics are black & white and this blanket would be so so SO perfect for her crib! I totally love the print (and the hanging cradle is to die for as well!!!).

    Hey scott, if you are into comics, if you havent allready… go and get the Serenity comics (based on Firefly, joss wheedon you know)

    Really intereting and good imo ๐Ÿ˜€

    Haha. WHAM! Straight in the back of the head. I’ll bet that was the Christian Bale version of a super hero. Meh, I haven’t read superhero comics in my life. Always been more of a motion media sort of geek.

    Old school batman would have a neon SLORCH! or BLAMMO!

    Holy payback batman!

    I’ve scaled back a great deal, lately…but there are some great mainstream hero books out there. You just have to filter them from the dreck.

  12. prion says:

    the comic book he’s reading kinda looks like Super Ninja Santa

    Happy birthday scott !

    I have felt the same way for a year or two now. Batman is definitely an outlier in the DC universe, but even then, I crave less hero. Fables is a great series. Also if you have not read it, Stuff of Legend had some amazing* art and a story that grabbed you. I also agree with Silver above. The Serenity comics are a fun read too. Oh and the Dark Tower series, but surely Scott has read those ๐Ÿ˜›

    LOL…..funny……..btw it is ‘indie’ not ‘indy’…….hehe….

    It’s my favorite comic book sound effect! “SHUNK!” ๐Ÿ˜€

    There’s nothing quite like a batarang to prove your point. ๐Ÿ™‚
