Good Image Comics?

other than the walking dead and hack/slash of course. I'm particularly interested in the ones that JUSt launched, since i can't get into a comics book if it's already a long time on-going

Jupiter's Legacy is one issue in and seems set to be pretty good. Also, although neither have just launched, Saga and Chew are both brilliant.

The worst part is that the teachers don't consult each other on how much HM they give, and some F*cking how every test is taking place simultaneously!

Invincible. I don't care if it's on 102 issues currently, it's more than worth it. I started reading Chew recently, and yes, that one is worth catching up on too.

East of West, Manhattan Projects, Peter Panzerfaust and Prophet.

@billy_batson: what is East of west and Peter Panzerfaust about ? :)

#11 Posted by Billy Batson (57976 posts) - - Show Bio

@theacidskull:

Well to quote East of West's solicit:

A Sci-Fi Western set in a dystopian America where all hope for the future rests in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse...who just happen to be trying to kill the President of the United States.

And Peter Panzerfaust is Peter Pan fighting in WWII.

Not an Image book but I think you'd REALLY like The Goon. It's about 50 issues in but it's coming irregularly.

Well thats fine :), i just want comics outside of the regular TWO MEGA companies ( Marvel , DC). the Goon huh? sound interesting :)

@theacidskull:

Understandable. Yeah, the Goon is one of the funniest series that I've read (probably in the top 2) and it can get pretty serious at times. And the main character most likely would be to your liking.

I will read the sh*t Out of that series!

I'd recommend:

  • Chew (Hilarious, original, sometimes can be serious, buddy-cop esque comic that's 33 issues in.)
  • Comeback (A crime/time travel miniseries in the same vein as Looper.)
  • Gladstone's School for World Conquerors (A hilarious miniseries about the children of supervillains learning how to be like their parents.)
  • The Infinite Vacation (A miniseries about love, choices, finding one's self, and multiple realities.)
  • Invincible (I know it's 102 issues in, but it's a great superhero comic)
  • Near Death (An 11 issue series about a hitman who died, saw the otherside, came back to life, and decided to change his way of life. He decides to help a person for each person he's killed.)
  • The Strange Talent of Luther Strode/The Legend of Luther Strode (An action packed, hilarious, yet serious pair of miniseries about a teen who acquires very powerful "talents".)
  • Who is Jake Ellis?/Where is Jake Ellis? (A couple of great action/espionage mystery miniseries.)

@theacidskull:

Icarus is right. Manhattan projects has to be checked out. I don`t love it as much as her, but I have to acknowledge that it`s good. I wrote a review of it. It`s one of newest reviews, if you`re interested.

I`ve liked Mudman. Don`t know if you`d like it. The firsts trade is a light read, and every ish about fife times lighter. The fights are short, art is great, it`s not very compressed, at first almost everything is shrouded in mystery and we get to know the whole story bit by bit. It`s also got a very old school, very calm feel to it. I think that you should check an ish out. At least flip trough one.

Latest volume of Glory is worth a read for the art alone. The writing is worth it, too. There`s violence too. The trades cost ridiculously little, like all Image-trades.

As for other publishers...Shadoweyes springs to mind. Made by Ross Campbell (artist of Glory). A tale about a pretty realistic superhero (not THAT realistic though, since she is a blue monster) in a Dystopian city. A little bit of violence. Alot of dark themes, lighthearted chit chat and...mostly talking. I mean...I bet that about 85 % of both of the published trades are talking. It might be a turn-off for you, since it gets pretty tedious at times, too.

Saga is great. You can pick up the first trade for ten bucks the second is coming out in June I believe. Also Great Pacific and I love Trouble are great scfi fantasy type books. ILT is on issue 5.

@theacidskull:

Echoing sentiments here:

  • East of West
  • Saga
  • Jupiter's Legacy
  • Great Pacific

I also just bought an older Image Comic called Phonogram but not sure if I am going to like it or not.

All of the superheroes in the Invincible Skybound/Kirkman universe are great, including Tech Jacket, The Astounding Wolf-Man and whatnot. Five Weapons has actually been a real surprise for me. I took a chance on it and, although there are only eight issues out, I really like it. It's not superheroes, but it's great nevertheless.
