New 52 I'm going through the catalog, picking whatever I fancy. I hope this is decent at least. If you read this, what's your favorite New 52 run so far? A lot of people hate how busy the costumes seem to be but I like 'em. Then again, I am max pleb to comics in general.
EMPIRE by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson An interesting cape comic that tells the story of Golgoth, a supervillain who won his war against... well everyone, I guess, and the building of his empire. It only has seven issues but was recently resurrected online by its creator when they acquired the rights back.
Gonna include a couple of art pages since they're so few anyways.
I'll post the rest within the week. My posting hand got injured when I hacked admin and made the host reject his credit card. FOR GOLGOTH.
Or rather #1 since the previous was #0. Whatever.
Lohkyn confirmed masterchanner.
The Sixth Gun Wild west with a supernatural twist. What's not to like?
ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY'S THE BORGIAS The corruption of the catholic church is such a romantic setting when viewed from afar. With "The Borgias", Jodorowsky pits history with a pint of inaccuracy concerning the legitimate Original Gangsters of yore of the same name. As if the real story needed any embellishment! But considering the fact that this was also painted by one of the best erotic painters in the medium today: Milo Manara, I guess that can be forgiven. A little fanservice here and there isn't bad when it looks as pretty as this.
End of book 2! Until next time.
thank you anon for posting these.
just a question OP, I once found the last issues of Metabaron and the Technopriests in english but somehow I've lost both of them and can't find them on my drive. Searching again on Internet only give me french versions, do you happen to have these two issues?
>>1052 Ah, Metabaron. I think I have in one of my tapedrives. I'll go check out my storage once I have the time.
>>1053 thank you anon
New Vegas: All Roads This comic served as an introduction to the world of Fallout New Vegas, originally released as part of the collector's edition of the game. Penned by Chris Avellone himself with the help of several different artists. Wish they made more.
>>873 I always wondered what exactly they meant by saying the Chairmen were former tribals
>>838 >>844 NEW VEGAS DID NOT LOOK LIKE THIS. That shitty fucking engine, man.
>>887 Its partly the engine limitations, especially with the awful way that actors are handled that makes them so heavy on the engine, and partly console limitations. Theres a mod that restores freeside and the strip to look about half as good as >>844 , but theres no interiors, just a lot of nice buildings and wide empty spaces with nothing to do in them
>>888 Not to mention the engine shits itself with 30+ actors visible on screen at any one time.
>>889 Piece of shit engine cant even handle 30+ static crates without shitting itself because of the comparatively moronic way it renders objects. It doesnt even matter if the objects are high poly or have the absolute minimum vertices, the engine kills the CPU. Fucking consoles.
So no discussion of this? I never liked comics much, but after reading, I had a great appreciation for them. The bit about how abstraction = universality really resonated with me. Easily one of the best books I've ever read.
>>572 Yeah, I was re-reading it after seeing OP and was planning on upping it to anonfiles for those that haven't. Unfortunately anonfiles is down.
>>571 MEGA link here, I'd dump it but its over 200 pages https://mega.co.nz/#!TVUlRKTT!0_mxzlHMuBJf8_Lm8jD0yJbrUM70WQgmtY3e45-pgRY

>>677 Didn't quite agree with his insinuation that the reason we are tolerant of of minimalist caricatures is because we see ourselves in them. That's more of him projecting than any other. Rest of the chapter was gold though.
>>894 He's kind of projecting, but for many people I feel its still sort of true. The minimalist caricatures are more comfortable and relatable for some, though the degree to which people actually self-insert is, in my opinion, very over exaggerated. I think once most people reach or pass adolescence, they have the empathy that allows them to relate well enough with a distinct and well defined protagonist who is physically and mentally unlike themselves.
ITT I will be dumping XIII by Jean Van Hamme This series is a spy thriller that began in 1984 about a man who awakens with amnesia, remembering not even his name and his only clue is a tattoo of XIII on himself. In seeking the memories of his past he eventually finds himself caught up in a dangerous conspiracy plot You might have heard of this from the Ubisoft game of the same name, or the two live action adaptations it got. There are a variety of releases for it, but your best option is buy the Cinebook release: http://www.amazon.com/Day-Black-Sun-XIII-Cinebook/dp/1849180393/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421470668&sr=1-1&keywords=XIII http://www.cinebook.co.uk/index.php?cPath=187
Cinebook has so far translated all of the original 19 books and will eventually translate XIII - The Bait, and the XIII Mystery spinoff series. Cinebook maintains a consistent schedule of releasing a translated issue every 4 months, but the one negative is that they have been known to censor books to comply with draconic UK laws. The violence is usually left untouched but they have a habit of drawing in shitty looking underwear on nude scenes, even if the scene is not sexual at all, and with complete disregard to the context, so characters will still talk as if theyre buck naked. For that reason I leave you with the following French RAWS 1-19 https://mega.co.nz/#F!SMURFY7B!W2rJXFcTyazfuXm5tSWG9g Poorly done old scanlation 1-19 https://mega.co.nz/#F!7Q9jHTLQ!lRI5K5zj7QCi9WzpVoCpKQ
End of book 1
>>896 Maybe someone can paste the translated text from Cinebooks to the French raws and call it Uncensored Translated version? Anyways, thanks for this. Have been meaning to get into XIII.
L' Histoire Secrète (The Secret History) by Jean-Pierre Pécau is one of the coolest historical/adventure epics I've had the pleasure of discovering while delving into English translated French comics. It is the third epic in the "Univers des Arcanes", first being Arcane Majeur (Major Arcana or Arcane Major) and Arcanes as the second. Don't let that scare you off though, as they're pretty much self-contained. The Secret History is about 4 powerful near-immortal siblings that has shaped known history around the world through their desire to survive and guide mankind to what they deem as a better future for all. Knowledge of history isn't needed but it'll enhance your enjoyment of the books if you still remember your grade-school history lessons.
>>683 Cool, didnt know there was an official english version I could buy. I read through the first couple raws but Im not fast when it comes to reading French. Archaia doesnt censor any of their books do they?
>>829 Not that I've noticed. They do abandon them mid run which is worse. Honestly, I only dumped it in the vague hope that someone out there would translate the rest or know of an on-going project that is.
>>832 Maybe cinebooks will pick it up one day, they picked up XIII after Marvel abandoned it
>>827 Thank you for dumping these. I enjoyed them very much. If I purchase the first book, how much of what you've already dumped would it contain?
>>827 >>885 Oops, never mind. I looked back and read you've only posted 3 of the 7 books of Volume 1. Take care.
Hey /co/, what are some animated movies based of comic characters that you consider a must see? Things like Return of the Joker and so on picture unrelated
Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm. A little dated now, and based on the animated series, but this is where it all begins in sense. Subtly alludes to the more disturbing parts of the story. And not a movie but- Spawn,the HBO animated series. Got a bit cheesy at the end., but the first two were the best depictions of violence as I understand it: raw and chaotic. And even with the graphic depictions, there's even more disturbing aspects subtly hinted at. Very well done.
>>752 The Spawn series was great, I wish it'd get picked up again by Netflix or Hulu. One of the few comic adaptations Ive seen that greatly improved on the source material. Depth was added all over the place with various little changes to the story and the bigger ones like Spawn trying hard not to kill some of his enemies like Chapel, because theyd just go to hell
If we're going to include series into the mix The Maxx needs a mention! >>678 The two Hellboy animated films are pretty cool. Some people like the Dark Knight Returns but I hate how it defanged the theme and cut a whole ton of stuff just to make it kid friendly. Which is hilarious by the way because a few months later Flashpoint Paradox happened. Then again, I guess the real comic was 2hardcore4them.
And really stretching the idea of movie, I'd include the game "The Wolf Among Us", which plays like an interactive movie. Extremely well done, and ultimately got me interested in Fable.

>>670 It's better to download them all through a dl manager like downthemall or something like it then read it in your pic viewer.
>>670 Youre not the only one annoyed by this, theres gotta be a way for gadmin to fix this
>>673 i compared it with 4chan's scrolling system and i noticed the difference when you minimise over here the picture is lost somewhere up above on 4chan when you minimise a picture that's really big that you had to scroll down for you automatically get moved so that the picture is at the top of the page and still in view. so gad can do that i guess. i posted a thread on /gg/ about it, do you reckon i should mention what i just said on that or what?
>>675 Yeah why not
Comic Requests thread. Request comics here at /co/r/. Requesting any, if not all Steven Universe comics if anyone has them.
>>258 You're the best! Where did you get these?
>>259 IRC. Maybe. I just dug them out of my HD. I haven't even read them yet.
Well anonfiles is down, whats the next best place to post? Could we just have a volafiles room where we post and trade comics 24/7, maybe give each file a whole week before deletion? Or will the kike mods there just report us to Marvels lawyers for copyright shit?
Best place to get comics is on IRC. You can find almost everything in it.
