All of IDWs Transformers stuff is awesome.

Furman is a legend.

They have started to release TPBs of Best of Marvel UK stuff. Anyone who is a Transformers fan should pick them up as they are some of the best Transformers stories ever.

Of the Dreamwave stuff I preferred Armada and Energon to their G1 stories.

Not read a lot of Marvel recently, but with Nate Grey, the X-Man making a return soon in the Dark X-Men story, I may have to make an exception.

The new Batman & Robin is awesome. Dick Grayson is now Batman.

Oh and Preacher, everyone loves Preacher.



Also Johnny The Homicidal Maniac is a must. It's only six or seven issues, one TPB. Absolutely brilliant.

Moon Knight's current series is definitely darker than the character I remember from the 90's. Liking it alot though:

Also I would be remiss if I falied to mention a character I was thrilled to discover:


Yes, it's a werewolf superhero!

Will have to check out that new Moon Knight series. Read a couple of the comics that were released in the 90s and liking the story.


Another one I'd recommend. Just picked up the first book today and it looks promising.

Hai...
I grow up with comics...but mines were exclusevely mangas, in Italy mangas have an affectionate public of otakus (fanatics) since many years, it's a much older phenomenon that in Ireland, cause we grow up with japanese anime on tv in the last 30 years.
good part of my fave were sci-fi mangas, that are usually quite nocturnal...
some example:

Battle Angel Alita



Sakano



Planetes



Eden



Gantz




These are just a lil lil few of my huge number of loved ones (that are in my parents garage back in Italy, sob...)...I think, generally speaking adult japanese comics can be more "disturbing" that western ones, or in a more subtle way...I dunno how to explain this, maybe if someone knows oth "worlds" they could agree with me...
Awwww...why are mangas so expensive in Ireland? SobSob

Anyone mentioned Scott Pilgrim yet?

Can't believe I forgot it in my first post as it's possibly the most awesome comic ever.

Quote:
From amazon.co.uk

At the end of the grim and barbaric dark ages, one warrior culture reigns supreme in the wastelands of the frozen North: the Vikings.When Sven of Orkney - now relocated to the sophisticated city of Constantinople - learns of his father's death, he returns to his home in the hope of inheriting a fortune. But what he discovers is treachery; his father murdered by his uncle Gorm, who has stolen Sven's birthright. But is Sven still Viking enough to reclaim what is his by right? And will he be tough enough to face down not only Gorm, but marauding Saxons?The all-new series by Brian Wood ("DMZ, Demo") and Davide Gianfelice ("Dylan Dog") is a bloody tale of murder, sex and war to bring out everyone's inner Norseman!

I've recently became obsessed with the work of Jaime Hernandez and the stories of Hopey, Maggie and Ray. The graphs are packed full of beautiful balance emotion and character. Jaime's stories are so believable that it makes it so easy to relate to the characters and I think everybody has lived at least one, if not more, of Jaime's stories.

I got Batman RIP and didn't really like it. The storytelling is too incoherent at times. Next up Batman A Death In The Family, just reading the quotes on the back gives me confidence it will be a great read!

yeah I can see a lot of talent and potential in grant morrisons comics but when I have to do an overall crit of his work, he comes out lower than expected.

like 'batman r.i.p' and 'the filth'......two pieces from morrison.....some great bits in them, but when put all together they lack some something essential.......i'd read them again to find out whats missing but.......meh!

Dark Avengers is ok so far. It's not got the punch of Civil War, despite having "Dark" in the title.

Started reading this on the recommendation of a Boardsie last night, read the whole thing so far. One of those comics where despite super powers etc. The best bits are where they're just satanding round narking at each other.

Oh and the character KK is a steampunk goth so that qualifies them for this thread

Rex Mundi by Arvid Nelson

Has anyone read this series?. Top Notch IMO and also a very apt theme for Nocturnal.

When a medieval scroll disappears from a Paris church, Doctor Julien Sauniere investigates, uncovering a series of horrific ritual murders and an ancient secret society. Julien cannot let these shadowy figures retreat into the darkness, lest they take up their killing once again. His investigation turns into a one-man quest into the bizarre secrets of the Catholic Church.
