If you’re 11 you’re probably the perfect age for Bone. There’s a black and white version that’s cheaper or you can buy the individual volumes.
Don’t let it fool you with the cutesy art style, it starts turning into an epic adventure on a scale similar to lord of the rings. I first read it at 25 and loved it. There’s been a movie of it in development hell for ages so if you read it now and it comes out you can be one of the cool kids who can say they knew about it before the movie.
For a bit of context, the guy being interrogated (and thus the guy who hired him) is responsible for doing this to Billy's best friend. First Thunder had some really great moments, especially Superman's reaction to discovering Billy's real age.
New Warriors has the same writer (Chris Yost) and many of the same characters as Scarlet Spider, Kaine's excellent breakout series. Scarlet Spider #1 is FREE on Comixology today. Go read the adventures of Grumpy Spider in Houston!
If you haven't, do yourself a favor. The whole thing is stupid cheap to read now https://www.amazon.com/Bone-Complete-Cartoon-Epic-One/dp/188896314X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2NAGQHCAN1U8N&keywords=bone+complete+cartoon+epic+in+one+volume&qid=1571269829&sprefix=bone+comp%2Caps%2C206&sr=8-1
JSA: Classified #1
Pencils by Amanda Conner, and this issue was written by Geoff Johns
Currently collected in <em>Power Girl: Power Trip</em> by Gray/Palmiotti/Conner et al.
The comics based on the Batman 90s animated series are fantastic. The early issues Batman and Robin Adventures issues with art by Mike Parobeck are some of my favorite comics ever. Issue 7 is maybe my favorite Batman single issue story of all time
If you are interested in seeing early Judge Dread work the best way to do that is the Complete Case Files each one covers about a year of publishing work and it’s pretty high quality.
<em>Spider-Man: Fever</em> was a three issue mini-series from Brendan McCarthy.
It's a fairly quick read, but it's a good one.

<strong>Comixology To 10 Bestsellers</strong>:
There is a 80% correlation between BC's Top ten list.
Black Panther #167 was 11th & JLA #19 was 15th.
Yeah. They started reprinting this and the SMW one a few years ago. Amazon has it and I saw it on a shelf at B&N not too long ago.
I see this come up every so often as a low point, but it's really important to remember the historical context.
During those first few months of the aftermath, nobody knew what the hell was happening. The entertainment industry was trying to figure out how to get going again (because everything seemed so trivial) and a lot of artists really struggled to make sense of it and acknowledge it. New York City bore the horrible brunt of the 9/11 attacks; it's the backdrop to the entire Spider-Man story - you couldn't not say something.
It's up to you as to whether it was successful or cringeworthy (and time is a healer that makes it easy to lean toward the latter), but there's sincere creative heart in this issue. For me, it stands as a notable cultural document of the comics industry trying to cope with heartbreaking tragedy and connect with a shattered real world.
For those that haven't read it, it's free on Comixology.
You have broken no code. There are some people who get tired of seeing new reader threads here, but they are not in the majority. That said...
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!
So if you're gonna be a digital reader like myself (benefits include not having to worry about books taking up space and being able to dig up anything you own to reread quick 'n' easy), the biggest site for this stuff, especially if you wanna read Big 2 (DC and Marvel) is Comixology. Kindles are made by Amazon, right? In that case, Comixology should be available on it, seeing as, well, Amazon owns the service.
A good place to start would just be any characters you're interested in. If you love Batman, there are countless classic stories to check out, plus tons of great stuff from the past few years. The big one for Scott Snyder's Batman is The Court of Owls storyline. This is by and large considered the best Batman story of the past few years (not by me, but by a lot of other folks).
It sounds like you like some darker stuff too. In that case, I'd recommend Southern Bastards from Image Comics, the story of (among other things) a small town in Alabama and how the local high school football coach runs it like a mob boss. It's pretty brutal, but if you can handle the Walking Dead, I'm sure you'll be fine with it.
I'd point her towards Lumberjanes and the new Ms. Marvel series, off the top of my head. Those are both great all ages books.
That is not the actual lettered panel. They edited the words. That is part of a page from Superman vol. 1 #680 by James Robinson and Renato Guedes.
This is the original page: http://i.imgur.com/4EfIYbj.jpg
It is addressed beautifully in the YA novel by Jason Reynolds (which I recommend the hell out of, by the way). Jefferson made some mistakes as a younger man and his life turned around when he met Rio. His biggest fear is to see his son make the same mistakes that he made. Between his choices and those of his brother Aaron, Jefferson felt that it wouldn't be right to give his son the Davis legacy and wanted Miles to start on a better path like his mom did.
On a related note, Bendis should have done more research, as the name "Jefferson Davis" is kind of a strange choice for a black character.
It's awful what happened to Finger, he gave us so much, so much of what we know about Batman and the landscape of DC Comics, and he died alone and destitute.
It's crazy to me, also, that Kirby made more money off his Fourth World and DC titles than he did for Captain America, the Fantastic Four, Hulk, the X-Men, etc. But Kirby does get credits inside the comics and in movies/tv now, I believe that change happened around the time Disney acquired Marvel. Same with Ditko, he's finally been credited inside the Spider-Man and Doctor Strange books these last few years.
Btw, this book was made once Disney granted the Kirby estate royalties for his work appearing in other media. It believe the deal was they get $100,000 each year a Kirby creation appears in a Marvel movie or show.
Scott Pilgrim and Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley.
The Sculptor by Scott McCloud, and maybe Understanding Comics if that counts.
Maus by Art Spiegelman
Peanuts by Charles Schultz, though I doubt comic strips are what you were looking for.
These are actually probably the only books I own done by a single artist/writer, other than The Dark Knight Returns (although did Klaus Jansen do more than just inks on that book? I wouldn't call it one of my favourites either way), but I really enjoyed all of them.
Edit: Oh dang, forgot Hellboy. Love Mike Mignola's art.
I read on IGN a little while ago that he has been cast for quite some time but this is the first it is being revealed.
EDIT: Here it is. http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/04/25/thanos-has-been-cast-and-more-marvel-movie-details
It's a cosmic space story about a group of rebels fighting against an oppressive empire using dirty, manipulative tactics. Think of it as a morally ambiguous Star Wars, in which the rebels use tactics that will cause the reader to question their allegiances.
You can read the Sneak Peek (think of it as a #0 issue) for free right here.
This run gets a lot of negativity, but I really enjoyed it. I think it was a fun and fascinating look at the life of a former powerhouse suddenly made average. Like a true hero, Diana still does everything she can to help those around her. Aside from an anticlimactic ending, the run was immensely enjoyable.
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this run (which started in 1968 with Wonder Woman v1 issue #178), DC is releasing a Diana Prince: Wonder Woman omnibus this December.
I think just about all of the Valiant comics in that list (plus more issues of each) are available in the current humble Valiant bundle for whatever you want to pay and DRM free...just saying
I don't see the $50 bundle in the Daredevil sale section
That being said, 37 issues @ $0.99 = $36.63
Also, volume 1 (issues 1-6) of the run is in the sale for $4.99, so volume 1 + 31 issues = $35.68
Archer and Armstrong
A comedy/adventure series published by Valiant. Obadiah Archer is a youthful idealist, raised by extreme right wing parents to be the ultimate assassin. Armstrong is a hard drinking, poetry and party loving, yet well intentioned immortal. Together they fight the Sect: a conglomeration of cults that control the entire world.
The first issue is available for free on Comixology.
Morrison's Animal Man is pretty meta.
and for whatever suggestions you get I wanna point out that B&N has a sale for this Black Friday weekend for 30% off any item
They absolutely did and it looks like Man-Thing had sex with the Hulkbuster armour had sex with a Predator. I want it.
Astro City #1/2 - "The Nearness of You"
It's about a man who can't stop thinking about a woman who, as far as he knows, does not exist.
It's not an oversight, Comixology does this regularly. For example, here is Courtney Crumrin's first collected volume. It contains 4 issues worth $1.99 each separately. For the special price of $9.99.
I'm not sure why you'd buy their collected editions at all. In my experience, the single volumes always cost less.
I love how her realistic her thighs are, real women have thick thighs to hold up the rest of them. I am here and ready for a male superhero with a dad bod.
X-Ray specs, learn kung-fu in your bedroom, Dynamic tension, Sea monkeys!
This book covers a lot of these ads along with what you actually received if you sent off for the products (crushing disappointment I imagine).
Comixology Top 10 Bestseller List
There was a 60% correlation between BC's top 10 and Comixology's top ten.
Batman: Creature of the Night #1 was 15th, Kill or Be Killed #14 was 16th, Mystik U #1 was 18th & Moon Knight #189 was 19th on Comixology's list.
The first volume is one $2 on comixology. I think I'll give it a bite as well.
Moon Knight #188 came in @ 25.
This week saw 90% of the same books on both lists.
(#s "It's a flash back to when Gwen was starting out as spider-woman. she's remembering how peter died.") i mean theres way more than just that in these pages but thats the jist of it. i highly recommend reading it, Spider-Gwen is a fantastic character and The art on this book is stunning in my opinion.
Here's the issue on Comixology if you want to read it.
Pick up "Vision & The Scarlet Witch - The Saga Of Wanda And Vision" which collects the classic stories of their romance and marriage together, which is also appropriate for Valentine's Day!
It's mostly female team; I think Beast and Gambit join for the last arc. It's X-Men Vol. 4, released in 2012 or 2013, by Brian Wood (and later Marc Guggenheim). As for age appropriateness, it's... your average X-title. Nothing too violent or adult-themed, but I wouldn't give it to an early elementary school age kid probably. At least, not unsupervised.
Anyway, you can find the TPBs on Amazon. Here's the link for the first one, and it'll lead you to the other 4. It does crossover with the Battle of the Atom for issues 5 and 6, and that's collected in its own tpb too.
There are three volumes starting with this one (or you could just pick up the single issues listed in each).
It doesn't get really good until book two, but it's a great run that pretty much laid the groundwork for every DD story since.
Comixology Best Sellers Top 10
One of the best comicbooks ever, not even exaggerating one bit. And this issue is proof of it, in just 40 pages Busiek presents one of the greatest relationships between a hero and his archenemy I've ever seen. I still shiver when I remember the ending.
Seriously, if you haven't read it go and buy this one-shot, here it is on comixology. Best 2 dollars you'll spend in your life.
Hi! I'm co-creating a comic set in a fantasy space world inspired by Africa. It's about two cousins who survive by fulfilling all kinds of missions for all kinds of clients. Even the shadiest. I thought I'd come and share it here. You can get a taste of it there : https://gumroad.com/juniba
Look at the number of people who have rated Ms. Marvel #1 compared to Wolverine #1 on comixology (came out on the same day). The number of people who rate a product online is usually similarly proportional to the number of people who buy the product (about 5-10%) Wolverine sold better in print, but Ms. Marvel did wayyyy better on comixology.
Bedlam. It's very good.
The title of the above post basically tells you all you need to know - reformed psychopath playing the Lecter role to a detective's Starling. Hints of The Joker to it at times.
Check a free Comixology preview of #1 if you want to sample it.
Yikes. There's a tall order.
Until the MCU Hulk was always one of Marvel's most prolific and marketable characters, but I really don't know if there's any kid-friendly Hulk material. The dude's a big rage monster.
It'd help if we knew how old she was. Here's a couple things I found doing a quick Amazon search. Hope it helps.
When it comes to writing it's best not to pussy-foot around. It dilutes your point. Stephen King in On Writing says “If you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects. If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered, anyway.”
If Claremont didn't use the word then it wouldn't have the same effect on the reader.
I mean, the robot didn't step on anybody's daughter. It was all pretty light-hearted. The robot even does a dance routine at one point.
It sounds like you're picturing something a little bit grittier than this story. You should Read the excerpt. It gives a pretty good idea of the tone throughout the book.
>1) for this book in particular, does it get better, do I need to read to understand future Guardians stories, particularly, the All-New Guaridans
No and no, it's pretty awful throughout, but Duggan's run can be read completely on it's own. If you want some good Guardian's books though, read the stuff by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, it's the series that made the Guardian's the beloved team they are and served as inspiration for the film.
Here's an Amazon link to the first in the series.
It's part of what was refereed to as "Cosmic Marvel" which was one of the best things to come out of Marvel ever. Here's a reading order for everything involved in it. Though don't feel like you have to read it all, though I would heartily recommend it.
>2) are all of Bendis' stories like this?
It varies from series to series, he is a good writer, but he has some serious weak spots that he blunders into occasionally. If you want to read some good stuff by Bendis try his Daredevil run, arguably his best work.
The art looks amazing! But am I the only one that's done with these 'animated' posts. Just because you put them in some app, doesn't make them animated. That does a disservice to actual animation.

There is no DC Unlimited or equivalent.
Marvel Unlimited is fantastic. They currently have a promotion for a free month if you want to check it out.. Scribd is another subscription service that has a lot of comics from smaller publishers like Boom, IDW and Valiant.
The one set between 4 and 5 is by Kieron Gillen. This link is for Vol. 1 of 4. Star Wars: Darth Vader Vol. 1 (Star Wars (Marvel)) https://www.amazon.com/dp/0785192557/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_JubMAbTD07K2J
The one set between 3 and 4 is written by Charles Soule has one volume and is currently ongoing.

I thought so too, but checked to be sure...TIL: > Many people, unfamiliar with the "reward or punishment" meaning of the word "desert," mistakenly assume that the phrase "just deserts" is properly spelled "just desserts" because of its pronunciation. (The usual reasoning is that a dessert is a type of reward one is given at the end of a meal, so someone who receives suitable rewards or punishments for his actions has gotten his "just desserts.") When one gets what one deserves, good or bad, one is getting one's "just deserts," accent on the second syllable but spelled like the arid, barren lands. (Snopes)
It's from Indestructible Hulk #4; if you've got this trade paperback that seems like the most likely source.

Comic Book DB - The Comic Book Database
Awesome site. The formatting and navigation leave a lot to be desired but the content is great. Basically IMDB for comic books.
So you can search for "Grant Morrison" and see all he's written. So if you want to read "Grant Morrison's run on the JLA" go to his page and look for the JLA title.
Another way is to just search Amazon or something for the Author (or Artist) + the title of the comic. Nowadays most comics are given a volume number and show the creative team. So if you wanted to read Peter David's run on Aquaman just search "Peter David Aquaman" and you'll see Aquaman by Peter David Book One".
Essentially you'll just get into the habit of looking for Comic Book Title + Creative Team and following that pattern.
yep, The one from The 90's with Evil Ernie. She's usually depicted a little bit more Muscular, Savage style.
If you want to know how Jones' storywriting is, you should check out Lady Killer.
It was a great read and I am more than thrilled to see what she will do with the Cat.
It's from this song. There is a much better version of the song on A Sonic Documentation of Exhibition and Banter, one of their other albums. I just thought it was a cool name that fit well for this account's purpose, which is to post comics and music stuff. :)
EDIT: Messed up the name of the album. Here's a link with samples.
On the art side, my personal opinion is that over the years his art has become "flatter" and less dynamic. Just my personal opinion, but apparently some others share it from things I've heard.
On the other side, there have been some controversies over things he's said:
I love Comixology, but there are some things to keep in mind.
You can download as many books as you want to as many registered devices as you'd like for offline reading, but you're limited by the capacity of your phone/tablet/etc.
There is no legal method to "back up" your purchases on your own hard drive. You are purchasing permanent cloud access.
The app in-purchase functionality is different between Android and iOS. I'm an Android user, so I was happy with the latest updates, while many iOS users were ticked off.
I personally find the reading experience to be far superior to the Marvel and Dark Horse apps, as well as CBRs/PDFs. Guided View is a treat. I don't always use it, but it's nice to have.
Your mileage may vary as to what device size is right for you. Personally, I bought the B&N Nook HD+ specifically to use with Comixology. The weight, screen size, display, and onboard capacity (not to mention the price) made it ideal for my comic reading.
Your best bet is to set up an account and try some of their free books. to see what you think. If you don't already have it, Silver Surfer #1 is free today!
I love the Walking Dead one - wasn't sure whether it was going to be that one or the one where [Carl gets injured](/spoiler) which was pretty damn good as well.
My vote's possibly with this from Y: The Last Man (ALSO HUGE SPOILER WARNING), or some pages of books like A Touch of Silver which without a scanner I doubt I'll be able to get on here.
Moreover, I think there are some people out there that simply don't want tons of tiny little comic books laying around. I buy comics now and again, but always in the form of collected volumes that sell for around $10.
Like, I bought the first rat queens collection.
From the previews I'd seen, the art was gorgeous and I'm into DnD so I tried it out. I liked it and bought Volumes 2 and 3 shortly thereafter (the art wasn't as good in these...).
Now I've got three booklets I can put comfortably on a shelf and identify from the side, instead of 15 little tiny magazines that I would probably lose anyway. To be honest I know so little about the industry that I wouldn't even know where to buy Rat Queens singles. And that's just fine, I'll wait until the collected volumes come out on amazon.
I've bought the new Ms. Marvel the same way. Just wait for the volumes.
Let's say I did rush out and buy a single. I'd be finished reading it in a few minutes. That wouldn't feel like a satisfying purchase, even if it might be cheaper to buy individually than in volumes.
I don't know how common my outlook is, but I do know that I don't want to be drowning in paper and that the collected volumes look nice on the shelf. How does this impact sales?
I would recommend this. I bought it a few weeks ago, and all of the stories within it have been very enjoyable. Very much worth the $8
A great modern era Thor comic starting point is J Michael Straczynski's Thor. He reintroduced and sort of rebooted Thor for the modern era.
You can also jump to Jason Aarons incredibly epic run, it's still going.
It's not for everyone, but I love it. It's what I've wanted from a Black Panther book in a long while.
I'd recommend getting the gorgeous hardcover that came out a bit ago as it contains the whole (long) arc and has a great bound.
PWYW Image preview book, Alex+Ada vol 1, Dealdly Class Vol. 1, C.O.W.L. Vol 1, Elephentmen 2260 book one, Minimum Wage Vol. 1, God hates astronauts vol 1, Genius #1-5, Satellite Sam vol 1.

Also wanted to mention, that Humble Bundle has an app, which you can use to DL your comics to your phone or tablet directly when ever you want. Might save you some fumbling around with cables.
>That doesn't stop it from being a ridiculous and insulting term, this is why America gets criticised, ridiculed, and labeled racist by the international community. "People of colour" or "coloured" just defines people for not being white, like it's a crazy or abnormal thing. > >You know there's a world outside America, right lad? Cos you're acting pretty ignorant of it.
We're talking about an American comic company, American artist. It's American centric.
The history of the term makes sense in an American context. You don't think it's at all racist to group people of completely different races, ethnicities, and cultures under one category because they're not white? What, is white not a color?
Like I told you before It's It's not a negative thing. Or racist. I'm black. It's a term of solidarity with other people of color. It's not insulting to us. When you aren't white in this country you get treated as other more times than not. It's just a way to show solidarity with each other.
Hi Ed - My introduction to Hip Hop Family Tree was through this year's Free Comic Day issue. The Marvel 25th Anniversary spoof cover was impossible to resist and I was hooked right away by its sense of fun and enthusiasm. The only thing missing was a soundtrack. :-)
Did you ever get any negative feedback from the artists you've covered so far (e.g., you somehow got the story wrong or some other criticism)?
With two volumes out so far, is there an endpoint in mind for the series?
Thanks for doing this!
For anyone lurking on this thread, if you haven't grabbed the free issue, go get it!
I'd also recommend CDisplay. It's a very simplistic yet fully functional reader. I've been using it for years. I'll occasionally try other readers but I have always went back to CDisplay.
You can find it at http://www.cdisplay.me
Avengers 34.1 -> 34.2
I guess Uncanny X-Force doesn't really count since it was a relaunch, but he sure murdered that too.
I believe this was from Batman Rebirth, the "I Am Bane" arc. I think Bane is beating the crap out of Batman and he says this.
Not sure what issue since I haven't read that yet.
I loved Kurt Busiek's run on Conan. The first volume introduces Conan and how he came to be.
Sounds like you’d be interested in the comic that it was inspired by: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It’s adult horror, and written by the showrunner of the TV show.
I would wager this new series is going to dial that back a bit since the writer is better known for the comedy in her stories.
Edit: You may also like Afterlife with Archie by the same guy, about a zombie apocalypse hitting Riverdale.
Marvels and Kingdom Come have been mentioned as the two big ones.
Uncle Sam, a forgotten but interesting piece from the late-90s.
The books he did with Paul Dini that were mentioned are available as The World's Greatest Superheroes HC
And, Justice and Earth X, but he only had a hand in the art instead of doing it all himself. He did write 'em both, IIRC.
Oh, and he only did the covers and some character design, but I recommend this book to anyone... Astro City.
What stuff, specifically? This collection?
FYI, it's currently stacking with the Dark Horse Weird Futures Sale, which means 50 cent issues or absurdly cheap collected editions for Black Hammer, Aliens: Dead Orbit, and some other stuff.
> There are issues that are months old from the I Am Suicide run hanging tough on the list.
There is a Justice League Sale through the 20th just in time for the movie.
huh... I was under the impression that "I Hate Fairyland" was/is a jab at critics who complained that his style couldn't be gritty or pack a punch. Additionally the cover of Marvel: Now What?, I interpreted to be a poke at "hating" critics as well. I wonder if he enjoys doing the "chibi shit now?"
If you want to read the original story that Snyder first threw the idea out, you can get it for free here. It first came out in the current Detective Comics' issue #27, which they made a big deal and had a whole bunch of people write short stories for it, this has all those stories but the main one from the then-current writing team.
The title was original called X-Men and was eventually changed to Uncanny X-Men (but kept the numbering). Generally X-Men v1 and Uncanny X-Men v1 are the same series. Giant Size X-Men #1 was the "relaunch" of the book in 1975 after they'd only been doing reprints of old issues from 1970 to 1975. They were going to continue on with "Giant Size" as a quarterly title, but ultimately decided to keep with the old numbering and continued on with #94 after Giant Size #1.
If you're looking to get into X-Men, check out my reading guide. It goes through every era of the book all the way up to the stuff being released today.
Lucky for you, comixology is running a sale on Hellblazer collected editions.
SKIP THE NEW 52 CONSTANTINE.
Nice read! Particularly on the complexity of reading some of those early JLA issues with panel crossing, I think it's a solid argument.
I'm not sure I buy the page usage argument 100% though. The first two 'green space' examples come from Issue 1 of the JLA run. In my opinion, especially in the second example but really throughout the comic (and the subsequent issue), we are shown images designed to look like we're watching the action play through the TV (look at the box shapes used), and playing with our 'limited view' (the first page gives way to a full-page reveal). Meanwhile, at the end of the run, JLA #39 would be the poster-child uses badges and motifs which take up half the page (see the 'See Inside' https://www.comixology.com/JLA-1997-2006-39/digital-comic/6890 for an example). And if you look at the Millar/Waid fill-ins, which have similar panel layouts, it may be that was Porter's preferred mode of laying out pages.
That said, it's a lot easier to throw stones at a theory than it is to propose one (heck, I'm sure someone could drag up a widescreen issue from the 80s if they looked hard enough), so good job writing something that made me think. I accept the panel theory and I don't doubt that generally the page usage trend was true. I think Morrison and Porter's JLA does mark a transition towards something new and different, and it's always worth talking about!
EDIT: for sense.
That's no shortbox lol, it's the Crisis boxset.
I really liked it. The art was pitch perfect. The story was nothing all that new, but still perfectly fine. I think that actually works in its favor for new and younger readers so I think the book does what it's attempting to do for the people it's attempting to be for. I also really like how it explored an interplay between Raven's magic and Hoodoo spirituality.
If you liked Raven you should check out Black Canary: Ignite. Much like Raven the plot is nothing all that amazing but the art is good and the character writing is charming. Raven has more stylization and a sharper thematic edge so Ignite is playing st a slightly less high stakes table, but it succeeds equally well at its own intentions.
I really like this new line of books from DC and I think it's a smart way to broaden the world of their characters to non-tradional comic audiences.
It's Batman & Robin during the time when Dick and Damien were the dynamic duo. Joker realizes it's not his Batman and is too disappointed to get up to his usual antics.
Black Panther: The Man Without Fear - Complete Collection
Dare to compare - not just the costume, but the poses as well.
Skin-tight leathers with combat-Waynetech-bits versus simple custom clothes you could buy almost anywhere.
It's a markedly different shift in how DC wants us to perceive the character, and what markets the character is being revamped to target.
I always thought of it as something similar to "tsk-tsk". After I first noticed it in Invisibles I thought it's a british thing but couldn't find anything on it.
But with Morrison it could also be some kind of magical sigil created to shape our collective unconsciousness or something.
Kelly Thompson's Hawkeye is off to a fantastic start - it seems to capture the spirit of the Fraction series while doing its own thing.
injustice year 4 annual 1 This one made me fall in love with plastic man!
You got it!
That said, the Peter from the main "616" universe did get to meet Miles in a special miniseries called "Spider-Men": https://www.comixology.com/Spider-Men/comics-series/8068
The Ultimate Spider-Man series that preceded Miles' run is legendary. Check out the trades from your library or get a subscription to Marvel Unlimited and enjoy. It's one of the greatest Spider-Man runs you could hope to find.
I'd recommend checking out the recent Flash Gordon series by Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner. It's a whole lot of fun and definitely swashbuckling.
You should also check out Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse's Tom Strong, which is one of the best, most fun things he's written.
The place to start would be either Ms. Marvel #1 or the paperback collection Ms. Marvel vol. 1.
AndreaMosaic. The interface is sort of old and funky, but it's got plenty of parameters to mess around with, and it does a great job once you've got the hang of it.
Edit: And I just used good ol' Photoshop to edit all the little images before feeding them to AndreaMosaic.
I looked up how much it would cost to resell. I think I found it on Amazon. If this is the right one, looks like this particular one is for sale for $56*
Watchmen, No. 1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0062OYXTM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_FfBhybZYFQX2D
Edit: user experience may vary. Supply, demand, authentication, etc.
Some non-crime suggestions:
-Local by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly
-The Essex County series by Jeff Lemire
-American Born Chinese and Boxers & Saints by Gene Luen Yang (there some magic realism elements in these books but they're very much based in reality; the latter is historical fiction).
-I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly. There's sort of a fantasy element but it's primarily reality-based.
-De: Tales and Daytripper by Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon. Daytripper has a bit of a magic realism element but it's an incredibly moving story.
-American Virgin by Steven T. Seagle and Becky Cloonan
-Maus by Art Spiegelman
-Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
-Jimmy Corrigan, The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware, if you don't mind something depressing.
-Asterios Polyp by David Mazzuchelli
-Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jom Crow by James Sturm. You don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy it.
-Ghost World by Daniel Clowes.
-Box Office Poison and Too Cool to be Forgotton by Alex Robinson. I wasn't that into BOP, but it's generally acclaimed.
