  • Books and movies are inferior mediums compared to comics

    The written word givves you too little, the moving pitcures too much. Comics is the best of both worlds. You get to see what things look like, you can see the expressions on peoples' faces, the beautiful landscape or whatever it is that a writer tries to describe with words. But there's still some for your imagination to add, unlike in movies where you see not only how everyone looks but also how they move.

    Hey, wanna look at my comics? Come here then http://terjelarssonserier.blogspot.com/

    Ah, sorry, it's all in swedish, but you can always look!

    You can also check out my crazy friend Dan's crazy website where he'll teach you to master the guitar in 8 minutes (or days... or whatever).

      On some fronts, I agree with you. Movies definitely leave too little to the imagination.
      On the other hand, if a writer can't adequately involve the reader to the point that imagination fills in the rest, both the writer and the reader aren't trying hard enough.


      That said, what comics do you like?

          Quick estimation... somewhere between 100 and 150 probably.

            Prepared for a long list?

            Peanuts, Lost In Paradise, Dennis The Menace (for the drawings only), Tintin, Asterix, Corto Maltese, Frank Miller's Batman comics (and some of his other stuff too), lots of swedish comics you've never heard of, Black Hole, Ice Haven, everything I've read by Adrian Tomine... well, that's all I can remember now.

                Peanuts is always my favorite.
                Frank Miller's run on Daredevil was exceptional, as well.
                Tintin was my introduction to comic books. I always got a good laugh at Thompson and Thomson. And that opera singer who could never remember Captain Haddock's name.

                  Didn't read Miller's Daredevil. Should probably do that, thanks for the tip.

                  Adding to the list... Borgeon, Sokal, Baudoin, Manara, Crepax, Loisel...

                      Currently, Moon Knight is one of the best books on the stands. Charlie Huston is writing it, and if you want to talk about nuanced storytelling, this is a book to check out.
                      Civil War, also by Marvel is good.
                      On the DC side, I'm enjoying the new JLA ongoing, Green Arrow, Robin and the Teen Titans.

                      I live in a small town with limited audiences, so mainstream stuff is the best I can hope for. Hellblazer under the Vertigo imprint sporadically has some great writing.

                          It was definitely written for a grown up audience as well.

                            Thanks for the tips. Some of this I will definitely check out.

                            I will mention him again... Bourgeon has made a mideaval story that is in three parts and especially the longer last part is amazing. The french really know how to put some effort into it, it looks like every panel is at least a good days work.

                            And anyone who hasn't read Mattoti's Fires hasn't really read anything.
