I'm bored right now so I thought of starting a topic, and all I could think of was something but manga. What else do you read besides manga? other books or comix you all would like to recomend?? Then here's the place to post it. And if u recommend adult stuff we don't wanna know lol biggrin . I read only comics myself so I could try recommend some:

-Bone (u prob know this).
-Jonas Fink (a good comic based on europe in the mid 20th century),
-Conan (luv this one. pretty much a different Berserk),
-Zentak (Sci-fi action, If u liked Jhonny Mnemonic(movie) U'll love this)
-V for Vendetta (better than the movie)
-Sin City (see above)
-Gypsy (a slightly futuristic tale about Gypsy and his big truck)
-Requiem (a hellish tale)
-Sambre (or Sombre -don't remember. Haven't read too much of it, but it seems very erotic and historical. It's from the 18th century).

I've read more but this is enough for now biggrin

I don't read much other things. One I liked was "Watchmen".

Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills! The people it kills get up and kill!

I don't read much of other comics besides manga. I do like "Calvin & Hobbes" a lot, but other than manga I just read books (actually I do read more books than manga, lol). My favourite genres are historical romances, fantasy, sci-fi... and well, basically anything. I kind of am a Harry Potter fan... *grins*

embarrassed comics
oh where to begin...

Silver Surfer
Kingdom Come
The Red Star
Blood Syndicate
Deity ('-' )(._. )( '-')( ._.)
Harbinger (first storyline was nice. was like up to issuse 26 or 30. the rest was meh)
Bloodshot (only read the 2nd version)
Street Fighter

note: liked most Milestone series and Variant/Acclaim although variant tended to mess up their series... and Milestone kinda just died in the middle of all their series

and just gonna name the ones i regularly read anyways (more major titles) <_< >_>

Fantastic Four
Captain America
Iron Man

and if your talking bout comic strips.... i gotta say
Calvin and Hobbs
Get Fuzzy
VG Cats

and for the record comics is where it all started for me ('-' )(._. )( '-')( ._.)

why back in the day we didn't 'download', we had to swim to japan if we wanted fresh anime and that was only if...

I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

Hmmm, other comics I read would be the DC series, but back before all that jazz, I was probably into the Flash series, but now I doubt I still have a gigantic interest in it.

I gave up reading american comics long ago. Back when I read them, though, I read Witchblade, The Darkness, Crimson, Rising Stars, and a few select others.

I came to like manga more than american comics, so I gave them up, as it was getting too expensive to keep both.

30 days of night
Peter Pan ( the french series, it is really awesome
Tank Girls fun,
everything from Bilal
liberty medows,

If you like Conan maybe you should check out Slaine

V for Vendetta was actually better as the movie imo, which is pretty unusual
