"Well, I tore through the TPB volumes 1-5 of 100 Bullets and am trying to find an affordable lot of books 7-13. (anyone wanna sell theirs?). I have a newfound respect for artist Eduardo Risso. Pretty decent crime comic!"
""Are people actually making a living here?"
Well, Cap is a professional journalist and could legitimately claim his comics purchases as a business expense. I could not. I once had a financial advisor who told me that, if I started selling…"
""As everyone must have heard me say a million times by now, one of my highest priorities is reading the Big 3 up to the point where I have read them comprehensively already, which is roughly 1958."
Much the same with me, though I'm…"
"“But my sources were different than yours, Jeff…”
My source is exclusively Diamond’s Previews catalogue, but it’s not as if anything is guaranteed to ship on the dates solicited no matter which source you…"
"I looked up Marvel and DC HCs through the end of the year, with a bonus of DC's omnibuses through June 2020. But my sources were different than yours, Jeff, as they didn't include all of the stuff you have.
Here's the list I compiled…"
"Nice, Jonan! You're in for a real treat. I would like to commit to following along with the group, but I know my reading habits too well to do that.
This morning, I read Land of the Sons by Gipi. It's a European publication about two boys…"
"Flipping through the latest Previews...
Adventures of Superman: Jose Garcia-Lopez v2 - JAN
Aquaman: Death of a Prince (HC) - JAN
Green Arrow by Mike Grell Omnibus - JUN

"I liked 100 Bullets as well... though I never got to the end of it, as somewhere in buying the TPBs I lost momentum...and then lost track of which ones I owned. I love that all the trade paperback titles are references to their number in the…"
"Wow, man. Thanks for your insight and time. After reading your recommend, I tried reading some issues online and will give the series some more attention.
I also checked out Risso and Trillo's Borderline. I'm finding the stark…"
"I thoroughly enjoyed 100 Bullets. I was introduced to the series with the trade collection Six Feet Under the Gun, and read it over and over until it practically fell apart ... and for a guy who's been reading comics as long as I have, it…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
