If you ask me, Scott Pilgrim laid the groundwork for comics of the 2010's. For better and for worse. And since I don't really like most of the characters from the little I've read, I want to say worse.

I tried to read sandman two times when I was a Teenager, but I left it in the issue where Chesterton appeared because I couldn’t understand it. I finished it a couple of months ago. Just in the issue where Lucifer leave the hell, I realized the bad taste I used to have for stopped reading it. Even if the main characters are abstract concepts with human form, they have feelings and sorrows. And the secondary characters that are just humans are not less interesting just for being normal people. The day by day of the stories flow with naturality that could be boring in other kind of comics or books. The everyday bitching of work, money, relationships, politics and sex that make the Stephen King novels so boring, if you are not from the U.S, Especially from Maine, it’s a part of the comic i couldn’t understand the first times I tried to read it. Now I can’t understand how Neil Gaiman makes possible writing about that without being boring.
The Only flaw I have with this comic is the Issue Where Marco Polo appears. I know an Argentinean comic about him which does a better job. It’s called El Libro Secreto de Marco Polo. The best chapter is where he knows Samuel Taylor Coleridge in the dream Palace of Kublai Khan.

What happened to the huge amount of horror comics from the 50s? Titles like tales of the crypt, or creepy. The only horror modern comic I know is the new volume of Creepy, and some adaptations of horror books of Clive Barker. Horror comics never became a thing again, after Fredric Wertham and Cape comics. The same thing goes for the sword and sorcery ones. Besides of the limited series of Conan and Kull, published by Dark Horse, those types of comic’s remains forgotten in detriment of superheroes comics. Now that the superheroes seem to be useless against a virus, we should probably see a growing in other kind of genres.

Most of those genres are European dominated now.
There are still stories from the US being published but they get nowhere near the attention as the shit put out by the heavyweights of the US industry.

Look harder wizzie, there are a lot of horror comics still coming out and lots of recent stuff. Gideon Falls, Ice Cream Man, The Empty Man, Wytches, Redlands, Nameless, Rat God… Take a look at Vault Comics and Image, they always put out horror stuff, you just have to keep an eye for it.

>The same thing goes for the sword and sorcery ones

To be honest that genre never managed to go much beyond Conan and you're probably never going to see something as good as The Savage Sword of Conan ever again. Hell it's my favorite comic of all times, it's as good as a comic will ever be imo. Marvel is currently publishing 3 Sword and Sorcery titles, Age of Conan, Conan the Barbarian and The Savage Sword of Conan. I haven't been following comics too closely for the past year but there's probably something else getting published besides those.

I haven't dived too deeply into them myself, epecially not the serials, as I tend to stick to graphic novels but a few I read last year were

Anything involving Phillipe Druillet
To a lesser extent Moebius and Jean Giraud
Juan Gimenez I am a fan of
Judge Dredd comics
Nostalgia for old Uncle Scrooge comics

Favorite overall is Tim Vigil I guess, as my only physical comic collection is focused on his work. Don't care about the writing or story. I read comics almost entirely for the artwork.

Three by Kieron Gillen, its basically a response to the bullshit of 300, it presents a more accurate, if somewhat political, depiction of spartan society, from the POV of three runaway helots, spartas serfs, some years after the decline of sparta begun. One of the best things I have read in years

Yes they are. I haven't been following it too closely because there's only few issues out yet and I like to binge but so far it's been more or less the same vibe you get from the original Conan The Barbarian, only the art is current year. The Savage Sword of Conan is also pretty close to CtB, which imo shouldn't be. They should aim to copy the original Savage Sword like CtB now is going for the original CtB footsteps. Going for a more gritty approach, maybe even b&w art, who knows, right now there isn't a difference between the two titles, I don't know who would be purchasing both, but there's always hardcore fans out there. All in all, both those titles feel rushed as hell and are of mediocre quality.
About new Marvel, I assume you're talking about agenda-driven identity politics.

For people with those sensibilities, Marvel is putting out a third series based on Conan's universe called Age Of Conan. It's focused on female characters like Belit and Valeria. Belit was pretty bad but I heard Valeria is decent, I'll check it for myself eventually, she was always too much of a smug swashbuckler for my taste but who knows, I'll give it a shot.

Anyone else waiting for the upcoming Dreadstar comic coming out soon? It's been 30 years since the last story came out. I'm really, really curious about this one.

¿How many comics Elric of Melnibone have?

I added this comic series EO to my collection recently and finally got around to reading it tonight. it is among the wackiest comics I've ever read. These people get exposed to an "orgone energy canister" that was stolen from a descendant of Wilhelm Reich who lives in an underground laboratory and one of the guys exposed becomes an uninhibited sex maniac who starts walking around naked everywhere and fucking people to death with monster penis. He also becomes psychic and can melt peoples brains. I love this wacky shit. This is like Jap Doujin wacky, yet it came out in early 90s California. Interesting that there used to be indie comic publishers and artists in the West who made crazy shit and didn't care what people think, like what survives today in Japan with all the weird grotesque doujins and hentai crap. This comic series EO, was supposed to be 4 issues, but from what I gather it was too lewd and violent for the time and place so the creators stopped at issue 2. This sucks beause I had a blast reading it. It's so over-the-top edgy that it's genuinely funny. Really creative. I'm sad that it stops in the middle. I'm sad, that as far as I know crazy indie comics are long dead in the US.

The images are spoilered for a reason so be warned.

I'm about to finish the Moon Knight series from 2006. What a ride, so much violence and gore, definitely one of my favourites anti heroes. His interactions with others like Punisher or Iron Man are gold as well. Planning on reading his old comics and both 2014 and 2016 series afterwards.

Next one is probably Shang Chi

How many comics based on the works of Lovecraft or any other writer from Weird Tales exist? I know two good Argentinean adaptations, and I think there are a few adaptations of Clark Ashton Smith works in France. Even a Vathek with the fan fiction he wrote about Zulkaïs and Kalilah.

Conanwiz here, I hope some of the Conan readers are still lurking, there are big news around and pretty much nobody is talking about it.

Conan is out of Marvel. It's official. They've decided not to renew the license and his last appearance in a Marvel book is probably going to be around July.

https://comicbook.com/marvel/news/marvel-conan-the-barbarian-rights-leaving-publisher/
https://screenrant.com/marvel-confirms-conan-rights-savage-avengers/

Maybe it's because Marvel doesn't own the character and can't change it to fit its current lineup, maybe the sales weren't good, whatever the case, they're not renewing the license. So this is the end for Conan as a Marvel character yet again. One interesting development of this is the actual license holder for the character, Heroic Signatures, decided to publish their own Conan comic, though details are still pending.

This might be an extremely interesting development since they also hold the IP for pretty much everything Robert E. Howard. If they pull this off right, this is a golden chance to make a Conan comic with the quality and appeal we haven't seen since the classic Savage Sword and that came out in the 70s, so yeah, I think there's some space for big expectations here.

Hey wizzies so while I was looking around for more info about Conan leaving Marvel I came across this series I've never heard about called The Cimmerian. Turns out Conan is already in public domain in Europe and there's a bunch of faithful comic book adaptations of Conan stories being currently published there. It looks interesting, definitely different. You can find them at getcomics as usual. I'll read some sometime soon and let you know what I think.
