You and i both know that ain't true. Come on now.

The first Punisher was very good, i liked it alot.


If you're talking about the Dolph Lundgren Punisher....!!! Dolph is the man!

Add to the list:
V for Vendetta
Sin City
The Spirit(I'm not sure on this one though)

I know there's another but i can't think of it.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Like the ones that Moore wrote. Because the movie was gay. Black Dossier=SUPER LONG but awesome.

Hey man! Awesome work, love your style. If you're up for it, I have a rockopera in the making that needs equally epic artwork!

If you want, I'd be delighted if you could make an album cover for it. I obviously cannot pay you in anything more than sincere gratitude, but perhaps you can take it as an opportunity to draw for at least a cause.

You have free reigns, the title of the album is "Justice Is Red" and it's about the second World War.

I have an idea of the cover involving a corrupted German general, but you can do what you wish!

-DW

sounds awesome dude. where can i listen to some of the music? it'll help me get the vibe. and the theme sounds awesome as well. i can't give you a set time as far as when it'll get done because I'm currently coming into agreement with a small press comic book company. so i'm not sure how busy I'll be. but i'll be glad to do it free (or maybe you can ship me a cd for free lol let me know what ideas you have

Hey guys, I bought V For Vendetta and That Yellow Bastard volume of Sin City. One thing I'm worried about is, can I read this as it's not the first chronologically, and still get the most out of the book?

You should be able to yes. It's easier when reading them in order but they're all somewhat self contained while being a continuation of the same story. I think with Sin City you might have to read it through twice to pick up everything. I didn't read it in order though the first time. If I remember right it does twist a bit between past events, future events, etc in each book. So the first book might have a beginning and end, but it has a more in depth add on part in another book. So you should be able to read them out of order the first time round then read them in order so it all comes together.

sure thing, recording will start around january 25th, so i will send you something in the beginning of february. and it is no rush, it is going to take quite a few weeks to finish the album eventhough the songs themselves are written.

i could start by sending some lyrics later.

V for vendetta, movie is worse than the book.

Sin City isn't bad. It's closer to the source material.

At the 2008 Scream Awards, Y won best comic and The Walking Dead was nominated so yeah that says something right there.

Could I get them in waterstones or somewhere, or would i have to go to a specialist bookshop, like forbiden planet international?

I've never heard of those stores before, but you should be able to get them at pretty much any comic book store or major book store. A major book store may not have them in stock though but I'm sure you would be able to order them or something.

Y: The Last Man is made by Vertigo

Sorry. I forgot you're not in the UK.
Waterstones is the UK's biggest commercial book shop.

Forbidden Planet international is the local comic book shop in Sheffield.

It was the only one the shop had. Apparently it's the first chronologically but not the first written, so I'm okay there.

That's only really because Frank Miller(The author) lent a big hand in the film.

Forbidden Planet is your best bet. I have a decent sized one near me that has EVERYTHING. In Waterstones they have basically Watchmen and that's it.

EDIT: Also, I'm thinking of starting to collect Fables, because I've heard that it's the best comic currently being produced by lots of people. Y: The Last Man is supposed to be great too. There's already like over 10 volumes of each.

Yeah.

The one in Sheffield's pretty crappy and small..and seriously over-priced.

Comics that are like 2 dollars are like 2 pounds 35. It's quite annoying.

Really? I find that they do actually have WAY too much **** comics like Red Sonja, and they also have way too many Punisher and Batman comics. Obviously they have all the classics though, so that's what I'm looking at right now.

dude, Watchmen is a lot more than that. I never really understood till I read the book. It's mind blowing. It's not your common superhero book. I'm saying this and I've only read the 1st issue! lol Anyways... Alan Moore's so bad ass, so bad ass that he gave up his royalty checks for all the films that've been made from his work. I don't blame him, "The league of Extraordinary GentleMen" sucked ass and gave me a wrong impresison of his work. He even told the current Watchmen director Snyder(director of 300) to just keep his name outta' the movie... he didn't want anything to do with it and sent his royalty check to the artist, Dave Gibbons. Dude's bad ass.

Huzzah! My V For Vendetta has like 2 pages misprinted, so I'm gonna read it and then trade it back for a refund and get me some more Sin City action. I read That Yellow Bastard and thought it was very good, so I'll get some more. Anyone else finished the whole Sin City series?

Or, hmmm, should I start Fables instead?

I've read the whole series, own them all except 6, read it in a library and found it weak, it's a series of short stories rather than a complete narrative.

Actually, think of it as the 1980s, superheroes are commonplace, but they don't actually have powers. They're glorified vigilantes who serve for the common good.

You see into their lives, and, really, how absurd it would be to ACTUALLY have super heroes. It takes a real-life approach to a very fantastical idea.

Sin City, sorry, wasn't clear.

I never read Sin City... all these movies they're making! lol I've only read half the books. However, my arguement is... the X-Men movie franchise wasn't that great. Why? They were too PG... the costumes were off... to me that's the coolest part! The actors were ok except for wolverine and rougue... and colussus... and ice man. I mean, the X-men are supposed to kick ass. Sigh... wolverine should of been played by that "Trabsporter" movie guy, if he could help the accent a bit but then again, Wolvie's canadian. Don't get me wrong, Hugh Jackman's a class A actor... he's just not wolverine. The story wasn't right. The mood. The movie should of been gritty. Everything's so colorful and gay... anyone agree?

X-Men has always been sort of colorful. I've never read any of the original comics but the old animated cartoon series everything was really colorful.

Hugh Jack was perfect playing wolverine. I don't think anybody could play him better.

The first and second X-Men movies i though were really good, the third wasn't that great. Just too much stuff going on in a short amount of time.

With that being said, if anybody can get my a good picture of Wolverine or Iron Man(animated) i would really appreciate it!

Yeah... but if they were trying to go for the "real life" feeling, it should of been darker. Gritty. Watching an XMEN movie's like watching a soap opera with really good special effects. Ana Paquin (Rougue) is def hot... really hot. But she's not Rougue. Rougue's loud, country and uses slang. It just wasn't there. Mystic??? Rebecca Romain's hot too... but she can't act and that Mystic design sucked. IMO. Here's who I think should of played WOLVERINE!!!

Ehhh, maybe he could have been good, but Hugh Jackman like i said played him perfectly. I prefer Ana Paquin and how she played Rogue better, not just cause she hot(cause she is haha) but the slang and stuff really bugged the crap out of me.
