SO... comic readers/ creators, discuss here: comic strips, comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, etc. Join the group in my sig too. Post your own work if you want, talk about favorites/ least favorites, etc. Anything from "The Spirit" to "Maus," and "Calvin and Hobbes" to "Bone." (those are the 2 GN's I know of enough to name ).

GO.

Personally, my favorite of all time is "Calvin and Hobbes." I have lots of reasons for this that I really don't feel like delving too deep into, for the reason that it basically got me into comics, influenced my drawing style, writing style, vocabulary, philosophy, etc. Without it, I know I'd be a different person, drawing influence instead on "Garfield" or Dr. Seuss.

OK GO. AGAIN.

I personally love, when it comes to newspaper comics, Dilbert, Beatle Bailey, Foxtrot, Zits, Rhymes with Orange, and a few more.

Cynaide and Happiness, not Calvin and Hobbes, right?



I like Dinosaur Comics, the older Married To The Sea's, Achewood, and Diesel Sweeties I read once and it was ok.

Edit- and VG Cats

Are you perhaps refering to the dog who is so angry he cannot move? He cannot eat? He cannot sleep? He can just barely growl? Bound so tightly with tension and anger, he approaches the state of rigor mortis?

May have heard of it.

Warren Ellis, anyone?

Planetary
Thunderbolts (post Civil War)
n.e.x.t. wave
... to name a few.

you can add Fell there...
yeah, i like his new Thunderbolts. its always fun to root for the bad guys.

on more mainstream comics, Thunderbolts and Iron Fist are really written and drawn very well. too bad they dont get much hype (well, they actually dont get any hype at all).

Graphic novel-wise, Watchmen is still the standard imo. ongoing series that are better collected on trades are 100 Bullets, Walking Dead, and probably Fables

Well, me and some of my friends have been writing and creating a webcomic for ages now We're probably going to go live sometime this year, which is going to be kick ass.

One of the most innovative cartoonists of the 80s...and that was a big decade for comics (Berke Breathed with "Bloom County," Bill Watterson with "Calvin and Hobbes," Garry Trudeau was still going strong with "Doonesbury" etc). I don't think "The Far Side" would've been nearly as good if it was a 4-panel...even though sometimes he had to divvy the box into smaller panels, the one-panel kept the element of surprise so well. Space is timing in the comics, as Bill Watterson once said.
