    Just checked out black road by image comics. Pretty cool. Based in viking territory, somewhere In Europe doesn't really say. The Christians are moving in and doing a conversion. Making people convert to their religion. Pepole that believe in the old Norse gods and other pagans go out into the open area away from the cities and male little villages. One man named magnus gets hired on to take a Kardinal up the black road, north to the coast. On the journey a Christian group kills him. Kardinals daughter saves magnus and you find out that a man named oakenfort was exiled from Rome and started the conversion in the area the book takes place. Magnus and the Kardinals daughter journey north to find oakenfort and kill him. Only 3 issues out so far but the art is dope af and the story is good so far. I thought it was gonna be dungeons and dragons type shit but it isnt. So far at least.

    Does any of the content of those omnibus books get lost in the binding? By that I mean panels aren't able to be read because they are sewn in to close to the middle. Kinda hard to explain.

    Black Eyed kids was cool. Felt like some children of the corn shit. Real eerie. So far, kids are popping up with black eyes killing folks. This kid kills his mom, step dad and almost kills his sister. Becomes a black Eyed kid and follows the other kids around. The biological father sees him do this and takes his wife and runs off to make a plan. A writer gets kidnapped by the leader who is some dude trapped in a kids body. Like a seven year old body lol. He wants the writer to document the end of humanity. Biological father is on the way to get his daughter out of the hospital and make a plan. 3 issues so far.

    Tomorrow I'm going to catch up on the fix by image comics, PowerLine by image, and suiciders: kings of helL.A. by vertigo

    EVERY MARVEL omnibus that i have encountered so far has had great binding so there is not much art loss.

    BY the way is you are not reading vinland saga then you are doing yourself and the rest of the world a disservice. SKIP buying fight club 2, it's total trash, and the greatest dissapointment in fiction i have ever had the displeasure of coming across calling it a COMPLETE LET DOWN would be an understatement... however, if you are looking for a non-comic book recommendation check out a book called the house of leaves it is weird as fuck and very experimental
  • Lou_CypherLou_Cypher E.L.E.: Everybody Love Everybody Arkham AsylumPosts: 46,890 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Damn I was really wanting to check out Fight Klub 2.

    So far, every indie comic I own has been fire. Really interested in what The Fix is about. The Art looks like it was drawn by the people who do the art for Grand Theft Auto covers.

    Get it if you really want to but in my estimation it's complete trash the art is fine the dialogue is good but the plot and overall story is horrible... especially if you read the original fight club or even if you just saw the movie you will hate this sequel.

    ORIGINALLY i was going to wait and pick up the library edition of fight club 2 that's coming out in a few months but after reading it in the format that's out now???? i really am considering selling this shit, it's so horrible.

    Just read the fix. Written by Nick Spencer and drawn by Steve lieber.

    This shit is funny as fuck and cool as hell. Starts out with two guys robbing a man in a senior living facility. Find out the robbers are actually cops who are crooked as all hell. They owe a guy a lot of money and are doing the crime to try paying him back. They build it up to him being an evil motherfucker. He is, but he is also a health freak and a nice guy on the surface but will kill you if you owe him money. I can't explain it too well, but this is an awesome book and pretty funny. Instantly one of the best books I'm following. Highly recommend, art is awesome and the story for these last 3 issues has been good af.

    I'm just now reading the infinity gauntlet.wtf!?!?! Mani have missed out these past more than 20yrs. I used to always see it on comic book stands in drug stores but would bypass it for x-men, spider man and x-force which were hot items at the time e because they were drawn and written by Jim Lee , Todd McFarlane, and Rob leifield. I just read issues 1-4 I might read the other two chapters tonight. Man did I ever cheat myself.

    Unless you collected them from way back when, you can try get the individual issues or try find a site where you can dl the individual issues or trades, but getting trades still a great way to catch up and read the classic titles/storylines.

    Though always better to buy trades online its always cheaper than at comic shop or book store.

    If anyone is behind on current comics or even past comics, check out the youtube channels "Comicstorian" or "Comics Explained".

    Comicstorian is my preferred channel. Both of their voices are annoying, but comicstorian does a good job recapping the stories and the way he reads the comic dramatically to you makes it more entertaining.

    I just watched his recap of Civil War 2 and its tie ins. That Hydra Cap america story is fucking crazy lol, i want to look into that some more.
