I looked at that on Amazon. It'd be like reading a Manga version of Batman, which would be awesome. But it's also a lot more expensive than the colored paperback so... probably go with that if I did get it. I still have to get Arkham Asylum and City, and then get ready for the New 52 TPBs in May though ( of which, my list won't stop growing :'( ), so we'll see.

You won't regret it.

The Art is awesome, the story is brilliant and it brings in the vast majority of the characters we'd typically see in a Batman story in a way that it just... works.

GET IT!

Heh. Well, May is still a ways off, so I might try to get it sometime in between now and then.

Alan Moore's pretty much responsible for getting me back into comics during my teenage years.

But yeah, I tend to be a fan of somewhat lesser known titles when it comes to comics. Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, The Demon, Preacher, Transmetropolitan (thanks Bison!), Mirage's TMNT, Hack Slash and Jeff Smith's Bone are all among my favorite titles.

Eventually I need to get around to reading Sandman.

None of those are lesser known titles. HOWEVER you are very welcome.

Second Coming arc by X-Men. I loved seeing all of the mutants standing united and having villains coming out of the woodworks. To see Cyclops stand up and be the leader of a race and make the hard choices that not everyone agreed with. It was a non stop roller coaster from issue 1-16.


Battle for the cowl-To see the reverse dynamics of a positive Nightwing and a negative Damien. I loved the interaction between the two. In a side comic I loved seeing superman pissed off telling him to take off the Batman suit.

Kingdom Come-I love the realness of being a hero in the DC world during the arc, something that DC doesn't dive into that much outside of Batman comics.

So...YAY! My package arrived today, and I just finished reading Arkham Asylum. M Bison was most certainly correct. It is "trippy." Heh. It was good though. I enjoyed it immensely. I think most of the negative reactions were due to it being "too dark." Maybe they started on Adam West Batman? I don't know. I started on Tim Burton's, so I kind of expect Batman to be dark.

Arkham City makes me sad... I haven't read it yet. I'll probably get around to that one tomorrow, but I love the underneath cover and I can't find an image for it online too share it besides this one. As you can see, it doesn't really show it that good.

There are plenty like this: Posted Image

But it's not really the same with the different color scheme.

Anyways, thanks for the advice Hayes and Bison. Arkham Asylum really is a fun read.

I really enjoyed Earth X. Though the 2 sequals were also good they dont compare to the first storyline.

Also, this may interest you, Hayes. Not sure if the fact that it's missing two of the seven digital only issues would've made a difference in my buying decision, but it's too late now. :) But I thought I'd let you (and anyone else interested) know.

So...I just finished watching Green Lantern not too long ago, and I didn't think it was that bad a movie. My reason for posting here, is I was wondering which one of the new 52 Green Lantern series gives Hal the most face-time? If I purchased any Green Lantern titles, I'd be doing it to read more of Hal. The other Green Lanterns? Meh. So, if someone could answer that for me, I'd appreciate it.

Also, this is the only "All Purpose thread not pinned. *hint hint*

Green Lantern focuses on Hal and Sinestro(sp?)

Green Lantern Corps seems mostly about John Stewart and Guy Gardner - as well as other various (none human) GLs

Green Lantern New Guardians focuses on Kyle Rainer(sp?) and members of other Corps

Jim Lee is my current favorite artist. His work in Justice League is great so far. Hush is my favorite of his work.
