    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    That Miller piece is really odd. Just as it's getting interesting they just switch to Adams, who - after reading his latest Deadman mini - I wouldn't treat as particularly reliable / coherent these days. Interesting that he implies substance abuse. I was convinced Miller had cancer or something equally serious. If it's the former and he's turning a corner, that makes me really happy. He's got plenty left in him if he can harness it. FWIW I really love his art at the moment. It's so pared down.

    Moore is such a creep. Yuck.
  3. Yes. Less throttle makes it easier to get a bead on enemy planes.

    I fear you're probably right. I absolutely LOVE his recent art. The more extreme and distorted it gets, the more I love it. Did anyone see this as well? He's writing a YA book featuring Carrie Kelley - the Robin of The Dark Knight Returns. https://www.polygon.com/comics/2018/3/23/17157140/frank-miler-carrie-kelley-dc-comics-graphic-novel Ben Caldwell art. Loved his work on Prez.

    I've never been specifically into the Inhumans titles, but loved Black Bolt and the Karnak mini from a couple of years ago. There's plenty of stories I've enjoyed where they've been side players though. The first issue of Lockjaw is really interesting and not what I expected. Looks like they're trying to get Lockjaw together with an ex hero who lost his powers and is living a pretty sorry life. Definitely made me want to get the next issue for sure. On a different tack, these are in the Comixology sale right now and are wonderful. They include probably my favourite single issue in the last decade as well

    Saladin's Black Bolt Vol 1 collection is absolutely excellent. Recommended.
  7. I loved this, although I did want to curl up and evaporate in a cloud of existential angst afterwards. As said earlier - those final 30 minutes or so are absolutely stunning. The score is great throughout but in the final sequence it's just magnificent. And I love that it doesn't explain everything. It leaves us so much to talk about.

    I had a 25 year gap of not buying single issue comics, and I'm a few years back into it now. So I think the novelty hasn't *quite* worn off again yet. Looking at the boxes I've accumulated, it's starting to sour for sure. In every other entertainment medium, I've totally embraced digital. I don't know why I find it so hard for comics. I think I like the ritual of it a bit.

    I can't imagine Squirrel Girl without Erica Henderson art. She's made it her own. I'll pick up anything she works in going forward, no hesitation. Waid Ant-Man works for me. (Also intrigued to see who replaces EH on Squirrel Girl)

    I think I'm going to leave the books I read currently on this list (Hulk and Thor) behind after this reboot, and maybe catch up with them in the future on Marvel unlimited. Hopefully Squirre onl Girl will carry on as it is. Who's the team on Ant-Man? Love the character, but it''s totally going to depend on the team for me.

    But... it's exactly like that, isn't it?

    Christ, the state of that. That's not fair. It's just not for me at all. I do pick up a handful of DC books at the moment. Some of the Hanna Barbera ones if it sounds like they're doing something fun/interesting/playful with it. Mister Miracle. Neal Adam's new Deadman mini (which I'm not sure I understand at all... but still enjoy). Doom Patrol. Doomsday Clock (out of morbid fascination and also the fact that it will piss off Moore - personally I think he's a creepy prick these days). But this goth stuff 100% turns me off. Plenty of the Marvel stuff turns me off too, mind. All the Spider-Man stuff bar Spectacular (I'll pick up anything Zdarsky does, and he hasn't let me down yet). Deadpool, X-Men, most Avengers books, Bear in mind that I'm old though. Old enough to have bought TDKR on release. Read into that what you will.

    They sure look it to me on the shelves though.

    All the rebirth books look all "dark and edgy" on the shelves to me. Doesn't help that one of them is called METAL. I'm probably won't but I'm very much turned off by it.
