Oh man, you just did such a good thing. Don't forget to read the Appendix notes for each chapter you finish to read Andy Moore separating the fact from the fiction and essentially giving a sort of directors commentary.

Will do! And make sure you do the same when you get started on Watchmen, there's loads of essential plot information hidden there.

Watchmen has an appendix? I didn't bother checking the back pages. I read the book excerpts and case files and what not separating each chapter obviously. It's getting quite good now, I was sceptical during some of the earlier chapters.

Oh right, well, those are what I meant anyway. Watchmen is a fascinating piece of work, and gets better for every time you read it.

Wouldn't recommend Scars. Way too brief, not particularly well written and annoyingly poorly drawn. Still have hopes for Crecy though, the artwork is much more appeasing and the first pages seemed interesting. It's even shorter than Scars though, I'll read it start to finish on the first half of my train journey to work tomorrow morning, let's hope it's a case of quality over quantity.
Really looking forwards to Maus.

In fact does anyone know if Forbidden planet will buy your used comics? I don't want Scars in my collection.

Read Crecy on the way to work. Very interesting and informativee. Lots of insightful stuff such as how they leave their arrows stabbed in the ground so the dirt infects the wound and get talked through all the different types of arrowheads. Great art and depictions of the battle itself too. Worth the 5 it costs. If you need to bump up an Amazon order to reach the super saver delivery price then why not chuck this in? My opinion on the author is increased somewhat now.

Not yet, was dispatched a few days ago though, looking forward to it. Play usually takes a while though, so probably won't have it for another week yet.

I'm glad you liked Watchmen and I can see how you think Rorschach is overrated. Lucy for me I knew almost nothing about the comic when I read it so it didn't have any hype to live up to, so for me Rorschach is fantastic character.

Anyone else read The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller? It's got a very interesting tone and is comparable to Watchmen because it revolves around the concept of out-dated superheroes and the never ending threat of the cold war. I thought it was very interesting 4/5 stuff.

Rorschach is still a brilliant character but he seems to be the firm majority favourite whilst I found myself more attatched to other characters. Maybe we pick our favourites by who we relate to most in this comic as they have such deep psychological profiles.

I'm with Jammer on this one assuming it's Nite Owl II he's talking about.

The Killing Joke wasn't particularly remarkable. Even the great Alan Moore can't get me to love the traditional superhero format.
3/5

Maus was great and having the father narrating the story, now an old and endearingly stubborn man, it makes the the mistreatment and killing of these cartoon mice in a comic book seem more real and sobering than any number of live action accounts or fictional depictions.
5/5

The Comedian was the most interesting i think.

Nite Owl II was the most believable, and the most likable.

Bitch you know I be trollin' because it didn't interest me at the time.
I either troll or force-feed my opinion on the subject. There is no in-between, and they can be hard to tell apart.
