    I've started reading BONE: Full Color One Volume Edition HC. The art and colours are very simple but very nice to look at in particular some of the facial expressions. The story isn't amazing but every evening I look forward to reading it and there's quite a bit of story building taking place.

    The pulp in these stories were amazing and I wish they would revisit Gotham Central in a DC Black Label title.

    But no I am on a Brubaker kick and I am going to start his X-Men run since I never read it before.
    Same. Gotham Central was one of my favorite reads of the last few years.....I didn't know Brubaker did a lengthy Daredevil run so, I have a line on a guy selling both omni's for a good price. Hope to have those in hand by the weekend.

    Still slowly getting through Revival, and picked up Vol. 4 - 6 of the Invincible Ultimate Collection so I can continue where I left off.

    I really liked Revival. However, I felt there was no real need to read it again, so I ended up selling off my copies.

    Yeah I feel like that will be the same for me. Nailbiter is definitely in that camp.

    Finished the New 52 Justice League run with the Darkseid War Omnibus, which was really great. Cool story that was very creative compared to the rest of the run, wouldn't have expected something like that at the end. Awesome art by Manapul and Fabok and also by the stand-ins. After that I read Paper Girls Deluxes 1 and 2 and now really want to read 3.

    Now onto the Punisher Max by ENnis. Read volume 1 and now halfway through volume 2. Very good run, Marvel should have these Max runs more often.

    Bit of warning: if you own these omnibuses and have not opened them up, consider doing so as my volume 2 has really shitty binding which is coming apart. This will require quite some repair work

    Brubaker's Daredevil is amazing; you're in for a treat. I would also recommend Bendis' Daredevil which takes place right before. This is Bendis at his best.

    American Vampire omnibus, enjoying it despite the art (which I’m not digging)

    Thanks for the heads up.......was wondering if it was worth a look. I was a huge Bendis fan before he became stretched thin at Marvel.

    Absolutely read the Bendis run before jumping into Brubaker's. Bendis upends the status-quo and Brubaker picks up immediately afterward.

    I'm re reading my Essential Tomb of Dracula vols. I own all the floppies but to me, Gene Colons art just pops in b&w.

    I've found the story very disposable and try hard (like basically everything Snyder does) but I've read the whole omnibus and didn't want to set it on fire.
    I actually really like the art style but I don't think it's very good for horror. Too much super hero comic type posing, which I guess is good for communicating information effectively when you are telling an action story (although I have increasingly less and less patience for that).
    The one chapter Sean Murphy does is the best (but that story has one of the most awful plot devices in the form of a character who gets introduced and disposed of within a page and a half).

    I'm currently re reading Ultimate Spider-man after absolute ages and it's weird how it can be super trite and decompressed but disjointed at the same time. Takes 6 issues to tell the origin but it jumps between scenes seemingly random.
    Also while I find Bagley a super competent artist his style just makes the books ridiculous and dated.

    Finished Ennis' Punisher Max run yesterday and really liked it.

    Now on to the Witcher Library Edition for a change of scenery
