Comics

I’m just starting to get into them, mostly via the glut of super hero movies lately.

What are your favourites - I’ve been a bat man, so to speak, for many years. I even have the signal tattooed on my shoulder blade.

I’m totally freaked out by the Batman Who Laughs at present. Check it out, it’s freaky as…

I read V for Vendetta online.
It was quite good.
I barely read any.
A couple back in the early nineties that I’ve completely forgotten.

The Watchmen & The Dark Knight Returns both live up to their reputation. Heartily recommend getting the trade paperbacks of both.
Hush is really good.
The Alan Moore Swamp Thing stuff is cool.
If you’re looking for something weird there was a recent run of Transformers vs GI Joe which is truly mindbending. Dr Mindbending if you will.

I remember reading a lot of classic novels in comic form when i was a kid. Probably call them graphic novels these days.

There are a few Asterix movies with Gerard Depardieu on SBS On Demand at the moment.

The Phantom. I used to develop alternative lines about Nadia and her relatuoinshop with the giant Nubian servant Lothar,who seemed far more appealing than the Phantom.

Grew up on Marvel Comics. Start my run of FF from issue 2. Do have X-men from 1 but my favourite growing up was Barry Windsor Smith’s Conan. I’m obsessed with his art. All up, I’ve got over a 1000 comics of varying titles from different publications
