Again, bumping an old thread. I currently have...5? subscriptions out at my local record store/comic book shop - Saga, They Aren't Like Us, Satellite Sam, Manhattan Projects, and occasionally some random stuff that Zano throws in for me.
I've just gotten into X - Men (because of the movies, I won't lie, I'm rabidly obsessed with Nazi Hunting Roma Dating Erik Lehnsherr), and have been listening to Rachel & Miles Xplain The X-Men to try and understand it all. This is a rare occurrence for me, I abhor superhero stories and mainly focus on monsters, but you know. I'm getting down with it.
Recently, during my vacation in Norway, I came across a new-ish (published in 2018 in Norway) 'Spirou et Fantasio' album (in Norwegian). The original language is French (it's a Franco-Belgian comic), and albums in the series have been translated into a large number of other languages, including English.
Anyway, just wanted to say it was really, really well done, and if you're interested in "modernised" classic-style comics, this one might be of interest. I don't know what the original title of this particular album is, but it translates to something like "against all odds". The story is set around the outset of WW2 and the invasion of Belgium.
Cinebook has published some of the albums in English:
Another thread I didn't know existed! I never got into comics until The Walking Dead. I started reading the graphic novel (sounds much classier than comic) after getting into the TV show. Now I buy it every month at the local comic book store! I also have read the "spin off" about Negan who is one of the villians.
Yes. It's the story of how people survive in a zombie apocalypse. It has been published for 16 years and is the material that the TV shows, The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead are based on. It is really good and not really about zombies, but about people and relationships and dealing with survival. Of course there is plenty of zombie action as well! Robert Kirkman, the author, said the time had come to end it. There were no hints that it was coming at all.
