great start to the thread where we discuss comics we are reading for the year

I thought that the link let you see everything but it resets the folder being viewed. If you go to Folders then All, there are lots of comic pages.

Definitely Amano inspired but also quite original.

I read Junji Ito’s Gyo and Uzumaki. The latter is all-time great IMO. Who knew you could have so many horror stories about spirals, and even combine them in such a pleasant final act? Anyways, to make this post relevant to 2018 I guess Junji Ito Collection is an anime series coming out.

Xp The Final Fantasy 3 (6) guidebook that came with my nintendo power subscription was one of my favorite things to look at. I never got to play the game.

Shiver has still only been out a couple of weeks. It's a shame that it often takes anime to get manga moving.

Reading Portugal by Cyril Pedrosa, which my gf thoughtfully gifted me for x-mas after seeing me browse it at Gosh. Subject matter means I'm drawn to this as only a diaspora type can be, but so far it's not doing it for me: protagonist is a confused, surly young man who's rude to everyone because he doesn't know what he wants to do with his life, and the art style is this mix of cartoony characters and impressionist backgrounds. Maybe it'll kick into gear once he actually goes to Portugal, the drawings of Lisbon streets I saw were lush.

i'm hard pressed to think of someone less qualified to write a sequel to Watchmen than Geoff Johns. Doomsday Clock is unredeemable garbage.

Just read Ulli Lust's Voices in the Dark. Pretty good. Disturbing as the subject warrants, probably too long. Wish I had some more context on the characters involved, especially the central audio researcher.
