Man, the GitS Live Action movie was indeed hard underwhelming and it managed to have an amazing art design while looking super bland and cheap at the same time.

And man, that one thing with Majors Ghost was indeed super insensitive.

Maybe Hollywood just doesn't think Americans can pronounce Japanese names. But it's in line with their initial whitewashing of the character anyway.

I am loving Aja's art in Immortal Iron Fist, though I don't like its style as much as in Hawkeye. I miss those thick lines and lighter colors. But he's still a master of visual storytelling.

I would agree but hollingsworths awful colouring ruined Hawkeye and all of comics for me in general. Even books he didn't colors.

Kill or Be Killed and Brubaker's Image stuff will probably be a good fit if you like that stuff.

Deadly Class, like Messi suggested, is also a good choice. Not really a noir comic or anything like that, but it's certainly grim and something I'd recommend. It's real good.

I'm actually already familiar with Remender and Brubaker and Velvet. Like, I do read comics lol. I just don't stay very current.

I think what I'll look for specifically is the latest of Paper Girls and Velvet (books I'm already into), then Deadly Class, and maybe Kill or Be Killed... Honestly, the premise of that one doesn't hook me. How is it really? Worth a read for sure?

In any case, thanks for the replies everyone. I'm going to make sure they're open on Sunday and hit it up on my break tomorrow if so. It's someplace social that isn't a coffee shop and it's got to beat driving aimlessly or eating at work. I'm excited, and I'll post about exactly what I ended up grabbing later.

Yes all of Brubaker and Philips stuff is worth checking out. Also Velvet is actually finished.

If you like creepy horror then check out Terry Moores Rachel Rising.

You have a good list there.

Cool, yeah I just checked and I'm only missing the last trade of Velvet, so I'll look for that.

Fuck I am almost a year behind reading comics. I very much look forward to picking this book back up.

Which reminds me: any books of note recently? I am just going to pick up from where I left off with all the Rebirth books and Thor + Ms. Marvel.

I heard good-ish things about the Jean book.

Jean Grey, both Wolverine books, Astonishing X-Men, and X-Men Blue are all you need from that line. Ms. Marvel and Mighty Thor are great as well. Secret Empire is bogging down a lot of shit right now though so it's hard to say what else there is. Secret Warriors and Royals for sure. Hawkeye is fun. Infamous Iron Man and Jessica Jones, but I'm not caught up on those.

That's just Marvel. Green Arrow, Nightwing, Super Sons, Superman, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, and Supergirl are all books I'm enjoying a lot from DC.

Black Bolt is a really strong book. I'm also enjoying Daredevil, Darth Vader, Iron Fist, All New Guardians of the Galaxy, and Gwenpool off the top of my head. Flintstones, Supergirl being Super, and God Country stand out to me as well.

I agree with the X-Men recommendations above.

Jessica Jones, Black Bolt, Infamous Iron Man (Almost done, the last trade will be out before Christmas) Royals if you like Inhumans, Defenders and Astonishing X-Men are both off to a good start, Gwenpool is a a great action-comedy with surprisingly strong emotional beats, I would also recommend anything written by Matthew Rosenberg (Kingpin, 4 kids walk into a bank, Secret Warriors and Rocket Raccoon)

I haven't kept up, but I would also recommend, Curse Words, Daredevil, I hate Fairyland, and Deathstroke

Damn, Mister Miracle #1 climbed to number 2 on the CMX EU bestseller list. It beat out Secret Empire in just a few days. The top 10 is usually static after each NCBD when there's not a sale.

I stopped reading it after the big Bat Family arc, when they started focusing on some shit with Azrael instead. But it was really good from what I read.

I find the success of the Superman series post Rebirth with a happily married Clark and Lois funny when DC wouldn't let Kate and Maggie get married because 'heroes shouldn't have happy personal lives'.

Also the image of Bats for the Love is Love comic makes that whole debacle sting all the more.

It's decent. And that applies to both Iceman and Batwoman.

Not in an X-treme X-Men kinda way?

It's a really good team book with strong artistic direction that leads to badass superhero moments with a very strong emotional core immersed in Batman mythos.
