  1. Cerebus

    He had almost twice my lifetime to cultivate that, so no.
  2. Cerebus

    Jesus. I would produce an opus that size for that.
  3. Cerebus

    ellis never ceases to amuse me. unless he consumes large amounts of lsd and has a mental breakdown himself, i never see him finish that kind of magnus opum.
  4. Are you a Milligan or a Milligant?

    i propose the "shoot" benchmark. if a particular hellblazer-story is an objectively worse hellblazer-story than "shoot", it shouldn't have been printed. case and point: ashes and dust.
  5. Are you a Milligan or a Milligant?

    Because it reads like if Scooby doo was a soap opera and had suddenly gotten shitty characterization for the whole cast. But read for yourself, there is a couple of different opinions on the run.
  6. #notmazee The cover looks as if he forces swamp thing to eat a yellow dick. Is he a prolific enemy of the green?
  7. I'm all for making zee look a bit bitchy, but that is straight up white trash. I mean her attire makes her easily confused for a stripper, but still... Also: what is a floronic man?
  8. American Gods

    Amazon has it. I bought the blue rays. Worth it.
  9. Swamp Thing

    You will and you will Luke it!
  10. The Hellblazer # 15

    Can somebody do a sketch with john in leather-jacket saying eeeeeeey and making demons explode?
  11. honestly when i first heard about this, i was hoping they'ld go for the hbo-spawn style.
  12. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    at that point in the story its propably more that he had those tendencies and not that he has. he created demon john by expelling his darkest side from himself.
  13. Marvel's One World Order

    dematteis looks like the long lost brother of chevy chase

  15. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    that sounds excellent, lol
  16. i don't know. something about it looks a bit too much like tales from the crypt meets dragonball. but thats just looks. if its a faithful adaption im in.
  17. that looks half decent.
  18. Happy ?

    the comic was crazy. this is even more. holy...
  19. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    can this thread be made only accesible to the members again please? i realize it's not a big hurdle, but i feel like the pictures of kids and us folks should be a little protected.

    i didn't feel like you singled me out or anything. i think i have been here long enough to know how to take stuff. also specifically my first post was definetly not the best way to open a discussion. i really don't want to discredit anyone in finding it interesting or whatever. i often find it pretty valuable to hear other peoples opinions on the hows and whys of their opinions. pretty sure thats just general human behavior. it's definetly not an enlightened approach, but ignorance and prejudice gets to all of us from time to time. i don't take offence in getting called out on it. (btw: enlightened is such a terrible word. i always think of buddha when i read it. there should be a better word for the philosophical meaning. the german word 'aufklärung' is btw the same one we use for sexual education so i don't know if it's better.) thats pretty well condensed what my stance is. ha. i had thought of the exact same comparisons. especially the jesus one just didn't feel right, no matter how i looked at it.

    sorry i don't know how it looks on a phone.
  23. What's going on with you?

    i get that. their high-pitched singing is super annoying.

    I get what you want to say: to have an educated opinion, you have to go to the source yourself. I generally agree, i just can't find the waste my time with every rambling mad men that got published. i consider myself pretty open, but i really have a hard time understanding the appeal in ancient astronauts and the like. like i get people wanting contacts with aliens to be a real thing. but i had watched some documentaries back in my teens that was produced with von däniken for german television and it's all so... flawed. *mein kampf ;) it's a retarded book. it's not as much evil, as it's plain out bad. even as a racist-right wing propaganda-book. there is one chapter where hitler had basically wanked off to animal-metaphors so hard, that i halfway through had no idea anymore what it was about... my personal highlighit of the book is the sentence (freely translated): "A goose will always be a goose, as a fox will always be a fox." - i get what he wants to say, but even in context, thats just... elementary school level prose. you could change the author, rename it ramblings of a mad-men and nobody would propably notice which book it is (there are chapters, that simply end with "... et cetera", he compares the aryan uber-race to working horses, it's all so fundamentally lazily bad). Also: I disagree with the notion that the kapital is an evil book (if books can be evil is a different question...), or that you could compare it to mein kampf. one is the theoretical approach to the hows and whys of the working class getting shafted in a capitalist society, while the other is a long metaphorical explanation of a racist ideology. thats fundamentally different. and while the kapital is one source for the foundation of socialist ideologies, the book itself does not perpetuate those ideologies. it's long and boring and from time to time incredibly naive (which i assign to it being a child of it's time) and people don't have to read it. thats the beauty of capitalist critique, you don't have to have any idea whats going on, to understand that cambodian women sewing footballs together for a mothly salary, you and i would be insulted by as a daily salary, while not being allowed to take a piss-break is something that is inherently wrong and that there should be a system in place that prevents such things. instead our financial system incentivises it.
