Kick Ass - Dark Tower Empty
PostSubject: Kick Ass - Dark Tower   Kick Ass - Dark Tower EmptyTue Jul 29, 2008 8:02 pm

I don't consider myself a comic book reader, I just started buying some issues this past weekend. In Jr. High School I read some and still have the series, mostly stuff like Maximum Carnage and Brood.

Anyhow, I'm totally ignorant to today's comics. I've picked up the Dark Tower's first trade (The Gunslinger Reborn) and liked it so much I picked up the entire second series today (The Long Road Home #1-5). I really like these books and not just because I'm a King fan. I like the story, the emotion in the images, and the world in which they live in.

I also picked up Kick Ass #1 (Director's Cut Issue?!) and #3, I'll hunt down #2 later this week probably. Not much to say about this series except that I think it kicks ass. (see what i did there?)

I guess I'm posting this, now pretty long, thread to see if any of you have been following these issues? I know that Dark Tower has a 3rd series coming out in September, but I need something to fill in the gaps in the mean time. What can you guys suggest to someone that likes said series? The people at the comic shop told me that there is nothing else on the market close to The Dark Tower's style right now, but I'd like to get a second opinion from all of you guys.

I've also checked out Walking Dead and Hack/Slash. I'm also reading the Watchmen paperback right now also.

Thanks in advanced for your time!



P.S.
I'm not opposed to comics with tights in them and I just wanted to use this smiley in a post: elephant .

While I do love me some Kick-Ass and I don't want to disparage the quality of the series, I think there's way too much critical hype surrounding the series.

It's good, but there were critics lauding it as the best indy comic to come out this year after only one and two issues. People have said JRjr is doing his best work on the series, but I just don't see it.

I think if you get a superstar artist and superstar writer and have them do a creator-own series for an "indy" company critics will cream their pants over it.

C'mon, TB... you know you read it and love it!


It's a good series so far though if a bit over hyped.

Even sweet cherry pie? It tastes so good it makes a grown man cry.

The cake is a lie.

Btw, what's a good site to use as a resource for release dates on issues? So you know what's coming out when, ect...

if you haven't found the pull list forum yet, that'll give you your weekly releases on the monday immediately prior.

other than that i just use the publishing company's webpage (marvel, dc, vertigo, etc). they're all extremely user friendly.

Then you've been eating the wrong pie. No one who has had good pie (not store bought) says what you just did.

I've really enjoyed Kick Ass. I think it's been a fun book. I didn't really like the first Gunslinger series just because it was just an adaptation of of Wizard and Glass, but the new series has been pretty good. Keep reading Walking Dead, it's one of the best books out there.

Don't get used to it.
Yes it is my favorite comic right now.
Will it be later? We'll see.
But come on... How often do you get a well written story with likeable characters that happens to be about zombies? Never. Thats how often. This will be the only one that is ever good.
