Sea of Red started boring.

Anyone want to read the best part of Sea of Red? Here you go...

Vampirate.

There, that's the best bit. Yes, just the one word. I just saved you three trades worth of reading.

You should get the collected tpb sometime, it's really funny. I probably would've subscribed if I'd known.

I would be doing a better job if I had read more than 25 pages of it.

Haven't exactly been able to work up the mood to read cartoons about early 00s politics.

I just remember the first or second one being a post 9/11 thing which was fine but a subject I'm super bored with so it sat around on my desk unread for a couple of weeks and eventually found it's way back onto the shelf. I've been intending to get back to it, just haven't found the motivation yet.

For me an untapped vein of Pete Bagge is a goldmine, I guess. The 9/11 thing was all of 2-3 pages long, but most of what I've read following it isn't so anchored like that. I guess..I have to listen to a lot of political activists sometimes, and some of the strips remind me of specific instances IRL...

My instinct was of course to pick more X-Men forever, but I'd like to pick a book that might get the attention of the creators. Any thoughts comic snobs?

Why do you keep asking me stuff in PMs and then never responding again?

It was a while ago and I've been kind of "Politics? STFU!" for a while so I'm probably just remember it wrong. I guess I kind of feel like if I'm going to spend time reading Bagge, I should probably re-read Hate.

Billy the Kid for hot Powell/Hotz action or Invaders for the Punchy rage.

JUDE pick a frrakking book. I recommend Billy The Kid's Old Timey Oddities and the Ghastly Fiend of London:
Image
Writer: Eric Powell
Artist: Eric Powell, Kyle Hotz
Colorist: Dan Brown, Dave Stewart
Cover Artist: Eric Powell
Genre: Action/Adventure, Horror, Humor

The world believes the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett, but in reality the Kid is very much alive, the hired gun of Fineas Sproule's traveling spectacle of biological curiosities--or "freaks," as Billy calls them. In their latest adventure, Billy and crew confront their most vicious challenge yet: Jack the Ripper!

In London to visit a true Elephant Man, Billy, Sproule, and the company learn about the Whitechapel murders and the fact that disfigured people are being blamed for the killings and targeted for mob justice. As the group applies themselves to the case, Sproule looks for information at every bar in the city, while Billy tags along to drink whisky and flirt with prostitutes at each one-which might be a better way to find the Ripper than he realizes.

* Includes Goon backups by Eric Powell!
