    I don't want to read comics about people getting married. I want to read comics about people getting their heads punched clean off their shoulders.

    Based on your guys recommendations I've been burning my way through Black Hammer, and hell yes it's a great comic. At the back end of the first volume now, will definitely keep reading! Edit: Still reading through Black Hammer on Comixology instead of working and just finished Doctor Star. I'm such a huge fan of James Robinson's Starman, I can't believe I didn't know this comic existed until now. Lou, you're right, I had tears in my eyes reading that final issue.

    Bendis is coming all over at the thought of Superman and Batman together at last! The wedding album awkward to sell? Hell, talk about awkward to make! There was Batman, crying in to his cape, saying that no one will ever love him and Selina is just like his mommy and daddy....and everyone was just standing there, looking really uncomfortable. There was no bride anywhere to be found for pictures. Batman's ex-wife Batwoman and estranged daughter Huntress were there for most of the pictures. Batman kept claiming he didn't invite Huntress and that she wasn't really his daughter, "something, something about a Crisis". Several people in attendance kept whispering, "Beard!" about Batwoman....It was a real mess.

    Remember how good Hellblazer was when John Constantine was bisexual, before he got married to that chick? Marriages ruin everything! Good thing Batman got out of that tricky trap.

    But....But....Where's the love, Lou? The love! You're right though, superheroes getting married is icky. I like it when you have a manly man doing his job with a bunch of other guys in tight outfits, and you have some simple-minded female outsider who is always trying to get with the guy, and the guy is like, "No way, sweetheart! I'm going to go hang out with a bunch of other sweaty, muscly men....and maybe even a few underage boys in tight outfits too!". Wait....is this sounding somehow homoerotic on my part?

    Yeah, I read all of Hellboy alone, until the end of "The Storm and the Fury", which effectively ends the Hellboy story, proper, for that point in time. It was followed by Hellboy in Hell. That follows directly on from the other Hellboy comics, and is pretty much self-contained too. After "The Storm and the Fury" ended, I decided to start reading all of the BPRD comics, and other spin-offs. So, it's perfectly readable to do it in that way. Here is a list of the publication order of the BPRD comics. This should help you. I would stop reading BPRD at the end of "volumn one", which ends with the "King of Fear" story-arc. That leads in to the "Hell on Earth" saga, which was long and dull and pretty pointless. It's not essential reading, really, unless you want to read the entirety of the canon. If you really love the Hellboy Universe and want to be a completest, you can pick up from there later. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bureau_for_Paranormal_Research_and_Defense#Publication_history Here are the Abe Sapien comics now. I would only read the first two TPBs worth of Abe Sapien comics ("The Drowning" and "The Devil Does Not Jest and other stories"). After that, Abe Sapien's comic ties directly in to the events of "Hell on Earth", and, once again, I would recommend skipping that, at least for now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abe_Sapien#Collected_editions Witchfinder is set in the Victorian era, and its continuity is usually kept separate from the wider Hellboy Universe, and only ties in when you read the entirety of the Hellboy Universe canon. They're not essential reading, but you can read any of the Witchfinder books at any time, and you shouldn't be lost, or you can just skip them completely for the time being. I wouldn't worry about anything else, for now. These were the classic Mignola comics, from the period when Hellboy and BPRD were at their best, before he started the "Hell on Earth" mess.

    You could read just Hellboy and be fine, They sort of run Parallel with Hellboy crossing into BPRD, but it was always a secondary book. For some reason early on the BPRD minis were always relaunched with #1s but on the inside cover it would say something like "23 in the series" My advice, Just read Hellboy, then if you are still interested go back and dive into the different BPRD/Abe Sapien/Hellboy and the BPRD books.

    I bet* this Graphic Novel will turn out to be the very book that SW Manor was seeking back in the days of Hellazzer. Remember**? That unfinished plot thread? *The Trading Places bet, if you're interested. ** I don't really remember this, just as something that appeared to be leading somewhere then vanished like an old oak table.

    https://www.dccomics.com/blog/2018/06/18/sting-channels-constantine-to-celebrate-30th-anniversary-of-hellblazer Huh, so Sting will be writing the foreword (and even dressed up for the occasion!) to this collection.

    Yay! That should be one of the best comics of the 2000s right there. Morrison and Liam Sharp. I cannot wait.

    I'm willing to give Nalo Hopkinson's book a chance, as well as the Spurrier, based on Hopkinson's work in prose genre fiction. Of course, it's become quite apparent that writing a compelling science fiction/fantasy novel will not equate to an author having any idea what they're doing writing comics. The Spurrier should be worth a read though.

    Yeah, Busiek's Avengers was certainly in that mindset, and definitely one of the best runs ever on that title. It's easier to do with the Avengers though, because they're about being the "world's greatest superheroes", and back-to-basics for them is the strong core team made up of the iconic trio, plus larger than life threats to the very planet, if not the universe. Spider Man is a bit different though, considering that it seems like Peter Parker's life is always moving forward, but when it seems he's growing in to too much of an adult person with real-world responsibilities, the creators decide to step back and move him to a more comfortable place from his time-line. "Oh, Peter is a college graduate now, in his early-30s with a wife and job? Well, what if he decides to go back to college and ends up with lots of money trouble instead?". You know, it's a step backward. How many times can this genius guy end up as a "loveable loser"? Taking away everything that makes the character distinct (ala the end of Slott's run) though, makes taking steps backward not as hard to take. Bringing back more of Spider Man's old rogues gallery, I'm all for that. Marvel seemed to forget that classic supervillaisn are a core part of the Marvel Universe too. Fans come to care about those characters almost as much as the heroes. I can understand running old villains in to the ground (how many times can Spider Man fight Dr. Octopus?). I can understand getting tired of the same story being told over and over. However, Marvel has had a terrible time creating compelling and popular new villains for their superheroes. Most of the villains that fans want to see were created by Stan Lee, or at least before the 1980s. There haven't been that many villains created since the 1970s that anyone has cared about (X-Men under Claremont is probably the exception, but after the Claremont-era, what interesting X-villains have come along? Maybe none). So, without those supervillains, the books have turned in to "Let's make Steve Rogers a fascist!" or "Tony Stark should be George W. Bush!". It's just terrible ideas for any characters who aren't going to be allowed to really change. "Well, sure, Iron Man was a neocon authoritarian just a few months ago.....but, he got over that, and now he's a superhero again. So, read his book and cheer for him!". It's tarnished the characters. That's why "Brand New Start" has been so successful in my opinion, as there is a real feel of nostalgia to most of these books, so far. Like I said, I realize that some fans will complain about comics going backwards again (and it depends on the title for how much nostalgia there is versus an updated version of a classic concept), but after things like Secret Empire, can these fans really say that Marvel had any idea what it was doing anyway? Maybe playing safer, and playing in the sandbox that made most of us fall in love with these comics (1960s-1980s comic books), isn't so bad for a while, in order to rebuild, before Marvel attempts to their next shattering Civil War event.

    So am I, but if it's got Zatanna in it, it's more worth a look than slightly pompous Harry Potter rip off would normally be...

    I'm assuming the bunch of weirdoes who claimed to have created the Doctor(s) a few issues back and the guy Lucy Blaze runs into in the first issue are the Daemonites? Presumably they've been shown as hands off and vaguely benign in a disintereted way so far to make it easier for Ellis to paint the Kherubim as the bad guys, given that he's already made a point of cranking the bar up as high as he can for that one. You're dead right that he's timed dragging Lynch and his crew back in at the right time, though. Wartching Bendix scream and shout while the IO board of directors indulged themselves in bland offs was starting to get a bit tiresome...

    Man, Marvel decided to release a ton of books this week. I guess they were worried that not many people in the US would care to stop by the comic store on the holiday. Unnatural #1 from Image looks worth a chance. Hopefully, Lou won't miss out on the Quantum Age #1, spin-off from Black Hammer. I know I won't miss out on it.

    Yeah, Snagglepuss did not go where I was expecting in that final issue. Brilliant mini-series on the whole, though I can't imagine what the approval process Hanna Barbara must have in place for their comic adaptations. "Flintstones as social commentary? Sold! Snagglepuss as a look back at McCarthyism? Go for it!" At this rate, the inevitable Captain Caveman series will be the next Dark Knight Returns.

    Snagglepuss: Exit Stage Left actually turned it up a notch in its final issue. (When it went meta it blew my mind.) It's an easy best of 2018 for me.

    Thanks Christian, that's extremely helpful! Just going back and reading over some of the stuff in this thread has made me wary of the "Hell On Earth" stuff, but it looks like it would be a long time reading before I make it to that point anyway. Dave, I didn't know Guy Davis was the artist on BPRD, I love his work. His Sandman Mystery Theatre remains some of my favorite art, so I'm happy to hear that I've got his work to look forward to!

    I will say this, those early BPRD books have some great Guy Davis art and might be worth reading just for that. I always felt his work was a great compliment to Mignola; it was very different obviously, but so moody and weird. it really worked for that book.

    Yeah I read Hellboy, but BPRD never really grabbed me for whatever reason. You can read Hellboy on it's own and be just fine.

    Because, they have to put "From the World of Sandman, Neil Gaiman Presents: Hellblazer!" on the cover of the collection, if they want people to buy the book. Including #27 is the only way that is possible with the Hellblazer comic. I remember when "Hold Me" was only available in-print within the Midnight Days Gaiman collection, or in the official movie TPB. You either had to stick a TPB without "Hellblazer" anywhere on the binding amidst your collection, or you were forced to buy that abysmal movie adaptation book.

    Read the first two issues of A Walk Through Hell today, and while the second issue didn't maintain the momentum of the first, that first issue was goddamned amazing. That opening sequence literally took my breath my away.

    Yeah, I'm glad they're including # 120, that's one of my favorite issues. Here's my ideal issue line-up: Saga of the Swamp Thing # 37 (for posterity) Hellblazer # 4 (Waiting for the Man, Delano's entry) Hellblazer # 27 (Hold Me, Gaiman's entry, though not one of my favorite issues it's exclusion would be a huge omission) Hellblazer # 40 (Forty, Ennis' entry) Hellblazer # 120 (Desperately Seeking Something, Jenkins' entry) Hellblazer # 140 (Locked, Ellis' entry and a good basic horror story) Hellblazer # 213 (The Gift, Carey's entry) skipping Mina entirely Hellblazer # 238 (The Smoke, Diggle's entry) Hellblazer Annual # 1 (Suicide Bridge, Milligan's entry) I think that would give a pretty good overview of the series as a whole while sticking to the single-issue story motif.

    I've been reading that Good Old Days story as it comes out and it's proper bad. Give John a few years off and maybe bring him out of retirement if someone has a story to tell with him.

    The first issue of A Walk Through Hell (Aftershock Comics) was stunning. If he can maintain that standard, it'll raise the bar for horror comics.

    And, yes, Exit Stage Left had the perfect ending. That last letter from Huckleberry Hound was simply beautiful and heart-rending. Who knew you could get so much emotion out of a pink lion and a blue hounddog with a southern accent? Definitely one for the "best of the year" catergory.
