    It was pretty awesome, it's the DKR of Superman, imo.

    I'd say the same. Though if you haven't already, check out "Superman: Red Son". Was really impressed by it and is up there with All Star.

    What is it about? I pretty much hate Superman with a passion so All Star was a kind of freak accident, haha, so it has to be pretty damn good.

    Elseworlds story, where Superman lands in Soviet Ukraine instead of the Midwest, as a child. Tbh i didn't really like Superman until i read this and All Star.

    Superman as a communist dick. Hot. I'll download it and have a look, then.

    And good man for the Superman dislike. I wish Wonder Woman had gone all the way and finished him off in Infinite Crisis.

    Well, Marvel is far better with their mainstream work (Morrison's New X-men, Brubaker's Captain America, Bendis' Alias, Bendis/Brubaker's Daredevil, Parker's Agents of Atlas, Vaughn's Runaways) but they just don't have anything like Vertigo and cancel books which don't turn an immediate and large profit, which really hurts their ability to garner critical acclaim and build up new properties.

    Another great team up is Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Spider-man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, Batman: The Long Halloween are pretty damn good. Worth checking out.

    No. Just, no.

    Deadpool is like the piece of shit on a crack whore's broken stiletto. He is not cool by any sense of the word.

    Yeah, Jeph Loeb is pretty good there. Stay away from some of his other stuff though, he can be a truly atrocious writer (Hulk, Ultimates 3).

    Re: ATTN: Graphic Novel/ Comic Book Nerds

    Hmm i've heard he can be pretty ordinary. Is there a specific Hulk series he made awful? Hulk: Gray or something else?

    The current series; it involves 'Rulk' and is bad to the point of hilarity. It's literally one of the worst pieces of fiction that Marvel has ever published.

    Wow...will avoid like the plague, then. I own Batman Hush and Loeb was still pretty decent there, imo. Guess he just went to shit.

    Re: ATTN: Graphic Novel/ Comic Book Nerds

    Woot Conversation!

    I'm a Vertigo junkie myself:

    Sandman

    Lucifer

    Preacher

    Y the Last Man

    100 Bullets

    Transmetroploition

    The Exterminators

    John Constantine: Hellblazer.

    Want to get into Swamp Thing quite badly.

    Also love Moore, but who doesn't?

    From Hell

    V For Vendetta

    Watchmen

    The Girls

    I also love the single format comics or 'back issues' that aren't in paperback form yet. Wildstorm seems the best.

    Ferry Man

    The Damned

    Church of Hell

    Fell (Warren Ellis )

    Want to also read American Virgin, if you go to the Vertigo website you can download the whole first issue for free.

    Independant comics are great too, I stock up each year at Supanova.

    The List

    Doom! Magazine

    Viole(n)t Strike

    Checker's World

    The Cyst: Reborn

    Oni Press:

    Wetmoon

    Lucifer: The Devil's Verse

    Image:

    Sin City

    Ring of Roses

    Dawn: Lucifer's Halo

    The Angry Christ Komix

    I also like IDW comics

    Hell House

    I Am Legend (DON'T SEE THE MOVIE. The comic is 100 times better, as soon as I saw Will Smith in the film adversitments I lost all hope for the movie).

    Stacks of others... All I can remember off the top of my head.

    Well there's a list of my loves and recommendations if anyone wants something new to read.

    Note: italicised are obsessively recommended and will never dissapoint.

    Oh, that reminds me, while we're talking Oni, I cannot recommend Scott Pilgrim enough. It's fantastic stuff and entirely accessible.
