Comic book fans
@TheMarcV I have a friend who bought some picture frames that were about the same size as a single issue. He found them at Ikea who knows if they still have them.
Interesting, that'd be a good idea to display special issues. I had thought about displaying them in a way where you could see their covers, but I can't think of a way that wouldn't also take up a bunch of room as well.
I've also kinda thought of some magical machine that would kinda be like a juke box but instead of cycling through albums it'd display comics and you can then select them and the machine would release the issue to be read. Thats a pipe dream tho.
@TheMarcV I wish there was a way to scan some covers to make them poster size.
If you could, what cover would you want a poster of?
@TheMarcV this would be one of them https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B36R3swD5wi_WVpXeVhVV1ZXcVE/view?usp=drivesdk
haha nice. Personally I've never gotten to into DC, which honestly is probably for the best, I already feel like im buying too many comics as is haha. I know if I were to give them an honest chance they would probably win me over and id be spending double every week then I am now. My GF brother picked up the We Are Robin trade and Ive read a bit of that, seems really cool.
Now is a perfect time to get into DC they relaunched it with all books starting back to issue #1

I was really into Batwoman until DC screwed that whole thing up.
@Vexchaneu now Batwoman and Batman are training Robin(Tim Drake) , Batgirl(Cassandra Cain), Spoiler(Stephene Brown), and Clayface to fight an army in current the Detective Comics
I heard about their relaunch, and that it was really good so far as well. I just always lacked the general interest in their comics and heros, and I'm okay with that. I hold absolutely nothing against their comics or fans, I'm just more or less satisfied with Marvel/Image/Archie. I do however LOVE DCs animated series, Young Justice was amazing and really if anything will get me to test the waters it'll be them doing another fantastic animated series that could drive my interest into checking out their comics. Time will tell.

@TheMarcV Hey i was wondering how good is Ringside? as a fan of wrestling and comics it seems like a no-brainer.
Also i recommend Afterlife with Archie which because of the premise pushes these characters to truly change and adapt in pretty incredible ways.

I'm reading a lot of marvel stuff, and I'm really excited about civil war 2. The only DC stuff I read is Batman.
If I'm being honest I'm still snagging Ringside on my pull list but I've fallen behind on it. My problem with Ringside is that there might not be enough actual wrestling action to satisfy me. It mostly follows a retired pro wrestler has he deals with his past, which is interesting but I kinda wanted more of a story with a current wrestler and their trials and tribulations in the business. Their is a character like this but he's secondary to the main characters story line. I think the first Trade came out, and since it's an Image comic the first trade is only $10. I think at that price its worth it to check it out, i'm a few issues behind to so it might have picked up.

I don't do superheroes. The art is stiff, overly busy, and crowds the page. The characters are either grim or psychotic. And all the death, destruction, and constant deus ex machina turns me right off.
My main thing is Disney comics. Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck, from such artists/writers as Carl Barks, Don Rosa, William Van Horn, Romano Scarpa, Marco Rota, Pat Block, Daniel Branca, and Vicar.
I also have a big Archie collection. The stuff from the 50's to the 70's is really well done.
Not to mention The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Robert Crumb, Hsu & Chan, and classic newspaper strips such as The Katzenjammer Kids and Our Boarding House.

I read everything Marvel, although I do it digitally. Silver Surfer, Squirrel Girl and Ms Marvel I make sure to also buy the trades.
The only physical single issues I get are Saga, Buffy, and Astro City.
DC and I have been on the outs since after the New 52. Not that I have a definite reason for it, just that most of the titiles stopped being interesting. Snyder's Batman was the last I kept up with. Though I need to check out the Rebirth stuff to make up my mind on those.
Image's Wicked and the Divine is amazing, as is Black Science.
Valiant is also on the rise as well. Archer and Armstrong is great, and XO Manowar and Quantum and Woody are pretty good too.
I also currently keep up with Archie and Jughead, as well as the 8th Doctor Who series.

I just jumped back on to the DC comics. I hated the New 52, but I am loving everything they're doing with the Rebirth. I stick mostly to the Superman titles as he's my favorite, but I'm enjoying the Green Arrow comic as well.
I'd also love to know what people think of Marvel comics now after the whole Battleworld thing. I was only reading Ultimate Spider-Man and I was not a fan of the way they ended the series and basically restarted Miles' story.
Oh man, Saga is so good, I dropped off around the 3rd or 4th graphic novel, has it been able to keep its standards of quality up this whole time?
To add to this, Saga has been incredible since the beginning. Also, Brian K Vaughan has said that the upcoming arc is what he's been leading up to since the first issue.
