I'm sick and tired of talking about politics/Fallout so I thought I would just make this simple thread about comics. My list in order. -1 vertigo. I adored vertigo as a teen and still feel love for it to this day. it's been on a decline recently, but they made some of best. comics ever back in their prime (preacher,sandman,hellblazer,transmetropolitan, just to name a few). They were one of the first to really push the boundaries on what comics can be as a artform. -2 image. Image is basically the "rocky balboa"/underdog) of the comic industry. Image was founded by a couple of artist who wanted to do there own thing and wanted ownership of their work,and they actually managed to achieve that dream. Some of their early work is pretty hit or miss( rob leifields young blood series was probably the most 90ist comics to exist). But nowadays their pretty much the best/most unique comic publisher at the moment,with series like chew(a comic where a guy eats food to collect their memories) invincible(a typical teen hero comic with a good amount of twists to it to make it interesting)!and of course their biggest hit so far the walking dead. They also made Astro city easily one of my favorite comics of all time. -3 marvel. I grew up reading x men so marvel has a small place in my cold barren heart. They practically invented the "flawed" hero concept, and were probably the most inventive comic companies back in the day. Nowadays most of their work is just shallow and boring, they seem to care more about "Giant epic event crossovers" rather then actually writing good stories. Some good comics come out of the mediocrity(like all new Hawkeye by the great Matt fraction,and moon knight by warren Ellis). But nowadays they seem to be trying to cater to the "sjw hipster" crowd by having "cute"and "quirky" squirrel girl series, a Muslim ms marvel, and mockingbird complaining about "fat shaming". -4 dark horse. They made bellboy and sin city both of which I love dearly nothing much to say really. -5 D.C. I despise D.C. Not because of shitty comics( but it's a definitely a part of it) it's because of their stupid business decisions. They literally threw out decades of continuity out the window and started over from scratch with the new 52. Except this time the heros weren't allowed to be married,or have permanent relationships(because fuck "character development" we need to make sure our heroes stay stagnant and profitable ). Did you like the flash family and the legacy title of the flash? Well you can suck a big fat gorilla grodd cock because flash is now single with no sense of legacy attached to him whatsoever. The only good comic that came form new 52 was Wonder Woman but that was mostly due to the great Brian azzarello, and the equally great artwork. Nowadays their trying to backpeddle and reboot AGAIN to try to get old fans to come back. But I'm not gonna waste a dime on it when I can read comics that didn't get rebooted to begin with. Tl:dr old vertigo was great, current image is amazing, marvel is sjw Funland with little sprinkles of non shittyness, and D.C. Sucks a big telepathic gorilla dick.
