Interesting! Looking forward to revisiting it now.duskvstweak wrote: ↑January 18th, 2020, 6:31 pm1. Got here late to the Watchmen talk.
To each their own, but I first read Watchmen in 2003/4, not the 80s, and I couldn't put it down. I think it still holds up and does a lot of things that have been imitated but not exceeded. However, I totally see why people might not like it these days, especially since a lot of what was new is old now. And if you read the stuff that came after first, than Watchmen might seem redundant. In regards to the book and the Cold War, I would love to read Watchmen and not be stressed out about stupid political powers threatening to destroy civilization as we know it. Let me know when that's reality.
Thanks for all the suggestions before, you guys - I have been slowly working my way through a fair few of them. I was going to post an update but my deep ignorance of the medium means that I have some harsh words to say about a lot of them, so I don't think I will.
The latest Humble Comics Bundle is Spawn 2020, issues 123 through 302. Anybody got any experience with these?
I have to admit I bought the Red Sonja bundle last time out. I really like it, bold artwork and entertaining writing, but at the end of the day the primary appeal is probably a statuesque redhead in a chainmail bikini.
