if you want argentine comics check out el cazador, patoruzito and mafalda


After years of reading only manga i want to get into western comics but dunno where to start since it's so massive.
Im interested in the best batman stories/arcs, planet and world war hulk, and classic thor and daredevil stories. I read V2-V3 of wolverine,the one where he fights romulus,and enjoyed it.
Are there any avaible lists for what im looking for?
also spiderman is my favourite superhero;what runs should I run about him?

>also where do i download. torrent?


I don't know about Daredevil, Hulk, nor Thor, but in terms of Batman I can only recommend Hush, Arkham Asylum (illustrated by Dave Mkean) and Mad Love in my subjective opinion.

Dont read The Killing Joke nor Whatever happened to the caped crusader? unless you can stomach the people behind them


is the one where batman is an old man and fights superman with a tech suit good?
i dont remember the name but I like the movie about it i saw

Hard to say, I never saw Dawn of Justice.

There's also Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller but I could never endure the disorganised style past the first few pages.

Anything involving Tim Vigil
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.

>I read comics almost entirely for the artwork.
Same. You should check out Mike Mignola's stuff.


This is really great. Black and white comic art is underrated over here, and yeah I know it was a meme in the 80's.
I've been meaning to get into the Judge Dredd comics since high school.

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


Mignola is a master of the form and I can appreciate why he's so renowned, but his style just doesn't jive with my taste. Highly subjective thing, taste.


I read the court of owls and im going to read miller's batman trilogy
Any other essential modern batman stories i should read?


¿Why the original writer of Thorgal left the comic? The other writer is not a good as Jean van Hamme.


¿Is Marvel publishing Conan comics again? I thought that was impossible. Conan is basically everything the new Marvel writers hate.

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. Jim Starlin had an accident few years ago that fucked up his hand pretty bad but apparently he recovered and this comic supposedly will come out by the end of this month. Let's hope it's good!


I remember reading an Achilles adaptation published by Marvel and written by Roy Thomas. ¿Does Marvel used to publish adaptations of classic books? ¿When they stopped published them and why?


¿The comics written by Brian K Vaughan are enjoyable? I’m looking for some apocalyptic comics, and Y: The Last Man is one of the most recommendable in almost every comic’s site. Also, are Saga and Paper succubi worth reading?


¿How many comics Elric of Melnibone have? I know Marvel published “The Dreaming City” back in the 80s, and I think DC had an Elric comic written by Neil Gaiman, along with other series based on Michael Moorcock work. I think there was an French adaptation, but I don’t know if they are only doing the first Elric book or if they are gonna do the 8.


Anyone here like bone? any recommendations for long, self-contained comics in a similar vein?

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.


Perhaps I mean to say underground comics, not indie comics. There still are indie publishers and comic creators making new stuff.


There are still underground comics just like there are still zine scenes.
It is just hyper niche and they like it that way.
And yeah, indie comics are actually booming right now compared to the mainstream industry. Mostly through crowdfunding.

Jhonen Vasquez's humour is hit or miss, but when it doesn't miss it can be morbidly hilarious

Stop it or I will start reporting you for using ¿This? shit as a pseudo signature.

It ain't cute.


¿ Stan Sakai still does Usagi Yojimbo? The last thing I remember reading about him in 4chan /co/ is was about a cartoon based of the comic. I don’t know if was released or not.


hello is there a conan adaptation that is not SJW or changing the plot to be PC?


I love Conan and read all the original books. Seconding this wizard's question.

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. Robert Howard had the best luck with comic adaptations. Just look at the bunch of conan comics

I had so much fun reading Super Sons, even managed to get a few laughs out of me. Wasn't expecting to be that good considering the main chars are two children, but it made me eat crow, it's well written and the childish aesthethic art synched perfectly with the comic.


>batman fear state event sucked ass
>x-men green was actively morally disgusting
Welp I am officially done with reading current mainstream comics. It's ether bad writing, forced politics at the expense of everything else, or more usually the case both.


care to post some screenshots ?


No I don't.

I re-read the original comic of 'The Mask' not long ago. It's a real trip if you're only familiar with the movie.


Your library has the Moomins comics? Lucky.

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.


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.


Well shit I should've looked up on yt as well, turns out there's a video about it and it's pretty decent. Here it is. This guy also goes into how shitty Conan's main book was. Nice watch.


I didn't realize there was a thread for this already here in /hob/ (so I posted this in >>>/jp/39067 instead). I've been enjoying the rebooted sonic comics. The metal virus arc was nuts.

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.


hey conan wiz, glad to see youre still here, thats all

Boy comics are really dead. Not a single post for a year? I'll have to up this before it's bumped out of the catalog.
I'm reading this right now. All Star Superman. I wanted to read a Superman story and apparently this is very well regarded among Superman fans. We'll see how it goes.

Conan always looks like a caveman carrying off his prey to rape, but oh no, he's actually the hero rescuing her from the real baddies


Conan was always the 'have the cake and eat it too' character. When he works as a mercenary it just so happens everytime the people he's going against happens to be irredeemably evil. Same happens when he's doing some assassination job. It's always some evil wizard or something like it. When he's a warlord in Aquilonia things work out in a way that he's the good warlord. And last but not least, everytime he's doing some thieving, he happens to be stealing from the people who stole the thing in the first place, not the rightful owner.


The dark horse conan is major sjw. You have been warned

I find the protagonist Antimony Carver to be quite erection-inducing.

Dose anyone know a good place to download comics? Libgen and all it's mirrors has absolutely gone to shit. I'm so bummed about this because they had such a huge library of stuff. You could also find foreign versions of manga that had better resolution than english releases. Real loss tbh.


libgen.rs seems fine. There is
getcomics.org or you can just go for torrents if you have anything specific in mind, you can use an add-on like Jackett to help you search.

About manga, I don't know what resolution you want, but it there are several sites with raw, here are some:
The problem is that most of them use some shitty direct download sites, but this itazuraneko mirror has a decent amount of stuff upped in mega: https://djtguide.github.io/library/manga/mangalist.html
Or you can try nyaa.si as well.
