Is this still a thing? I've recently been reading comics for the first time. I've read Batman Year One and Batman The Killing Joke. I've got The Dark Knight Returns and Arkham Asylum to read next laugh Would love to read some other comics. 

Give Y:The last man and Locke & key, only started reading comics recently. Thanks to currierox for the recommendations.

I've just finished Dark Knight – cracking read. The animated movie is available via the Cartoons HD app for anyone who managed to get that.

I'm now ploughing through Y The Last Man.

February is almost upon us so maybe that would be a good time to re-KINDLE the Comic Book Club?
I might not be able to read the book of the month, but it's a great thread for getting recommendations from others.
If it wasn't for this thread, I wouldn't have every been exposed to The Killing Joke.

Totally agree with Adamski, if it wasn't for currierox and this thread I wouldn't have got into Comics.

I will say that I just got Batman Earth One and it makes for a cracking read. It changes a lot about Batman's origin story, even changing the roles that some of the characters have. I'll say I was really surprised by some of the twists in the story.

Also I just got around to reading Long Halloween and Hush. Both absolutely fantastic stories, though the ending if Hush leaves much to be desired, the story itself was brilliant. Jeph Loeb did a brilliant job on both of these. They are both heavily character driven stories, with a. Lot of twists and turns whilst using some minor villains and using them in pretty unique ways (at least for Long Halloween)

Sorry for the rambling, it's late, but I just wanted to put my 2 cents out there. Definitely read these books if you have the chance. I wasn't disappointed by them at all smile

You are right folks, this has been sadly neglected over the last few months!

I have been swamped with work and so I have had to take a back seat on this, it would be good to set something up to chat about things and produce some cool content for both the main site and the forums.

Does anyone have any ideas about how we can spruce things up a bit?

How about we mix things up with something downright dirty and jacked up.

I propose we read, The Boys.

How about we do a classic 1 month then do something up to date the next? Im pretty up to date with books from image, vertigo, idw & oni so I'd be happy to suggest some of the hot titles that are currently ongoing.

My subscription list is now standing at 37 titles per month and will easily pass 40 when the April solicits are up on comixology.

Ok currierox why don't you kick things off and suggest a comic for this month, I've still got credit on my iTunes so I can download comics.

I like the look of "The Boys" – it stirred up some controversy when it was released…

Its currently at a keen price point on Amazon.co.uk http://goo.gl/zut8ih and a little cheaper on Kindle.

The idea of jumping between a newer and a classic title, from month to month is an interesting one, I find it hard to find new titles and seem to go back to the same old favourites. A fresh look at new ranges would be appreciated.

Ah yes, my comic reading buddy suggested this to me a while back…isn't Simon Pegg one of the 'stars'?

Well, I at about issue 14 of Y The Last Man.
Now I've got my hands on The Boys (hooked me in withing the first few pages!).

Quick question, is it acceptable to have multiple comics on the go at one time?
I'm only on book 2 of The Walking Dead, so I'm mixing it up a bit.

How many comics have you guys n gals got on the go at any one time?

I'm following about 7 different current series right now.

Curry follows about 25 or 30 I think.
I tend to marathon through older stuff. The Boys took me about 3 weeks to read the entire series.

Took me maybe a month to read all of Y the Last Man. The entire Alan Moore Swamp Thing took a month or so.

 

I think it's easier to burn through two comics at the same time if their stories are completely different.  I don't think you'll have too much of a problem reading Y the Last Man and The Boys at the same time. But I wouldn't suggest putting Walking Dead into the mix since both Y and WD are post apocalyptic in theme.

 

I made the mistake of reading the Vertigo version of House of Secrets and The Unwritten at the same time and to this day I have a hard time remembering what happened in which book.

OK, so if we go with the first volume of The Boys, we can discuss it on this thread, on twitter using the hashtag #mlgcomicclub or on facebook/Google+ 

If anyone is brave enough to record their thoughts on video etc, fire the details through and we can share them with the wider audience.
