Is this your first time in the comics threads? Berserk fan, eh? I own 39 volumes and an info book in Japanese. I love Berserk so much.

I actually find Champions pretty decent. His Avengers is just "okay" though, which is surprising considering how great his JLA run is said to be.

BTW, Fabian Nicieza shade? I thought he did good writing Red Robin before it got canceled. And I understand his Cable and Deadpool series was excellent?

One of my favorite moments was when Foggy Nelson got Matt a special birthday present. He invested in this experimental technology that allows the blind to see for a very limited period of time - and he had a videotape of one of Mattís dad boxing matches. Itís really sweet.

Itís sort of a joke at this point. ĒWhat bestsellers havenít we done sequels or prequels to yet?Ē Deadpool Kills getting another miniseries despite the ones after the first one not selling as well was pushing it but now itís a parody.

The intent for Old Man Hawkeye is a mini, so it's not that big of a deal. Now if they had announced it as is and we weren't sure, then I'd be confused.

Nah, I live in the Los Angeles, which has a Kinokuniya near by so I was able to buy the series in Japanese. As for Manga, I don't actually read much, the only other series I've read and enjoyed beginning to end are Akira, Pluto and Yotsuba! Other series just continue to lose me midway (Monster, Deatnote, 20th Century Boy, Vagabond).

Yeah my Japanese is no good, I can only make out that your saying something about speaking Japanese...man I need to hit the books!

Read the first like 9 or 10 issues of Outcast. It was good but just wasn't my jam.

Never read American Vampire, might finally check that out.

How was Necrosha? Blackest Night was still going when it came out and never checked it out. Does it basically take place during Yost's X-Force run?

I wouldn't recommend Necrosha, if only because it's an X-Force by Kyle and Yost storyline. Just read that book instead, since you effectively get the entire Necrosha story in there.

I mean, I never read X-Necrosha, but I read Kyle and Yost X-Force and was like, "Wait that's its own event? Why?" It's a good storyline, just can't recommend spending money on a separate event.

Thereís Fourteen, which is written by the famous Umezu Kazuo, who lives like a 4 minute walk from me. That series is a little bit silly... because of the villain. If you really want Japanese horror, I genuinely love Itou Junji, but most of his series are contemporary in terms of setting. Sci-fi Horror is quite uncommon as far as I can remember.

That's going to be a good looking book. I'm surprised it took them this long to do something like this though.
