Isn't it funny when you think your story's going one way, and it turns out it was going another all along?

Wow, my list is tiny compared to everybody else's.

Monthly basis:

Marvel's New Avengers
IDW's Transformers titles
Marvel's Cable & Deadpool

Recently, I picked up some back issues of Dreamwave's G1 with Jetfire taking on Sunstorm. Also picked up some graphic novels and other Marvel comics that catch my attention.

... okay, I've read what I presume to be the first trade... whilst I wouldn't go so far as to call it bad (at least as far as the bits without Etrigan in them)... uhm... it gets better, right?

Hells yeh. From the second arc (Ten Thousand Bullets) until Tommy's Heroes is solid gold.

Not a comic but I finally decided to start reading the Thrawn trilogy (Star Wars episodes 7-9, essentially). I'm about halfway through Heir to the Empire right now because I'm a slow reader.

Pretty good, really, though I'm halfway through the book and I just don't feel like all that much has happened.

Good to know.

Have you read the whole trilogy? Which book would you say was strongest?

Bought those a while back, but I forgot about them, need to dig 'em out and read 'em.

Just finished Animal Farm, and was wondering if anyone could recommend 1984. I though about picking it up soon.

Haven't gotten any tpb's or graphic novels in a while, so no comics for me.

Love 1984... probobly one of the best books I read in high school. Lots of ties to what's going on in the world today.

Hate '1984' - it's so damned dead. The prose matches the story, I'll give it that!

Ah, I'll be honest and admit that I loathe pretty much all the C20th lit I had to read to do my 'O' and 'A' levels (anyone out there remember them?). I'm a Medievalist at heart.

Wyndham can be difficult, but I prefer him to Orwell.

*Now reading 'Deep Water' by Debi Gliori and JRR 'The Two Towers'.*

Excellent trilogy. I couldn't put them down once I started reading them and I do hope that if sequal movies were made for 7 to 9, they would be based off these books. Probably really unlikely so it's really more wishful thinking.

I read 1984 a loooong time ago and found it depressing since I see a lot of examples in the real world described pretty accurately in the book.

It's been about 5 years now but I think I liked book 2 best, though there's a bunch in 3 with Luke and Mara that is great stuff too...

There are comic versions. We can pretend to talk about those.

1984 is a amazing book, utterly heartbreaking (and of course a big influence on V for Vendetta and thus apropiate for this thread!).
