Chew Original Comic Art - Issue 30 pgs. 16 & 17


A little rich for my blood but I do love Chew and that rules, I have to devote any higher end OG purchase still to a Mignola original.

Scrolled through the thread fast and at first thought those were photos of your personal collection and I was going to be extremely jealous.

That would be pretty insane :drool: there are tons of pages from this I would love. Hopefully will finally obtain a Mignola page this year.

Going to heroes con in a few weeks and I'm looking for recommendations for superhero TPB's to hunt for in the bargain bins that don't require a lot of backstory. In general I prefer marvel over DC but not interested in spiderman or captain america, and probably not x-men as the continuity just got too complex with all the offshoots. Any especially good story arcs that have been collected for Thor, Hulk, DD, Wolverine? On the DC side i'd be interested in some good flash or maybe green lantern stories.

Not sure if you have checked out Remender’s run on Uncanny X-Force, I know it’s X universe but it’s an incredible read and art is top notch from Jerome Opeña. Hawkeye run by Matt Fraction few years back was amazing with art by David Aja.

Slacking's recs are pretty good, esp. X-Force (does require some X-history/knowledge)

I'd go with something like Bendis' Daredevil run which was followed by Brubakers - both should be easy to find in tpbs and are two really good long-form stories.

Jason Aaron's Thor run from a few years back was great; Geoff John's entire Flash run and GL run were both great and should be really easy to find in trade. If you haven't read Darwyn Cooke's The New Frontier I would put that high on your list to find - 60s take on the Justice League, amazing art and a great one off story.

Greg Pak's Planet Hulk story was really good (basis for a lot of the story that became Thor:Ragnarok) and in trade.

If you have any interest in Batman, I would try to track down the Grant Morrison trades of his run on the title (Batman & Son, the Black Glove, Batman: RIP, Batman: Last Rites, Batman & Robin trades, Batman Inc trades) - while it relies on the ENTIRE history of Batman, Morrison writes it all his way and makes it all into one coherent story that feeds his own story. Probably my favorite run in comics ever.

Thanks for the recs so far. I'll definitely keep my eye out for some of those. Planet hulk (and WWH) is actually about the only thing I bought in singles in the last decade or so but loved that run. I read uncanny x-men back in the late 80's/early 90's so hopefully i'll have enough background to not be completely lost with uncanny x-force.

I cannot recommend that Fraction Hawkeye run enough. For whatever reason it wasn't everyone's bag, but it's a fantastic street-level story with relatively small stakes, no history to really get bogged down in.

Does anyone by chance have any marvel legacy comics with a code in the back for the app quidd? They were in some issues from late last year. I can get a list of the ones with them if anyone here buys them.
