Seeing the volleyball panels was interesting. I think I'm afraid to really get into manga because there's already a hundred western comics I want to read and adding an entire new section of books to look through seems really daunting.

I thought I remember reading about how everyone basically reads manga in Japan, in big telephone book size compilations that they treat like newspapers and just toss when they're finished. Is that accurate? Are there people who have the same kind of collector mentality as over here?

If you ever need the Defenders drawn as ponies or the cast of Doctor Who, I know where to hook you up.

Please don't want those things.


The majority of manga is read in phonebook style anthologies that are printed cheap on the world's worst paper and can be bought almost anywhere, but they release individual volumes of ongoing series and single volume collections. It's kind of similar to how the US market handles trades, I guess? It's a really shaky comparison if you examine either in any detail but it's an okay shorthand.

Collecting manga issues would be difficult. Instead of getting one 32 page issue of Superman a month, you get a 500 page copy of Shonen Jump every week. And that's just one magazine. If you're buying Gundam Ace and Big Comic and Monthly Shonen Magazine, trying to store them all would get difficult pretty fast.

I think manga series were getting collected editions pretty early on compared to comics, so I think there's less of a drive to go out and collect every issue of Jump with Dragonball in it.

Pleb, you're not supposed to store the magazines. You're supposed to throw those out and then buy the Tankoban of your favorite series.

Hey, everyone, happy 2018!

I am recruiting two people for my Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game on Saturdays at 8pm EST. We're currently, funny enough, running a game set in the DCU, but we jump around every adventure. I may be a little touch-and-go due to my work schedule, but this can be a fun chance to play a fun system, play your favorite characters, and get to live comic book action!

If you're interested, come to the discord.

Someone mentioned this at the end of the last thread, and I think it needs to be reiterated: why the hell is Lone Wolf and Cub only available in those lovely little DH books? Give me an oversized collection.

It looks like Dark Horse is releasing a Gallery Edition with "selections" of the work, but I want the whole thing.

e: also, a couple of you are re-reading all of Thor, right? I'm up to Thor 140 and oh my god this book is so good. It's the best work Jack was doing at the time, by a mile. FF is good, but Thor was made for Kirby's fantastically grotesque style.

Dark Horse fuckin' sucks. They just stopped releasing new volumes of Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, they let Battle Angle Alita stay out of print for a decade until the movie was announced, and they stopped releasing Blood Blockade Battlefront until the anime came out and was a hit.

133 was good yeah, but I love the issue where Jane Foster becomes an immortal for a hot minute, or the whole war between the trolls and Asgard.

And Tales of Asgard is actually the best part of that book, starting at about 114 there isnít really a bad ToA story, and once they get going on the Ragnarok saga and into the adventures of the warriors three itís unassailable.

I did not expect to love Thor this much.

Thor is probably my favorite book from 60's Marvel. Spider-Man was great, but you get tired of him whining about his problems after a while. Donald Blake's whiny rear end was holding Thor back for a while too.

I still think Spider-Man is a cut above, mainly because while Pete's whining can grate after a while, he's a genuinely interesting character who has interesting things happen to him. He's the only Marvel secret identity so far that's worth anything. Tony Stark is the next best thing I guess, with all the Senator Byrd stuff that's going on, but it's tough to care that much about the troubles of an incredibly rich genius who also happens to be Iron Man.

I was real disappointed when they cut back to Don Blake in Thor after the war on asgard thing. If they can avoid going down that path that would help sway the scales, but I just don't know if they will.

On the other hand I'm also right where Romita takes over on S-M. I love Ditko but Romita is just so drat good. His work on Daredevil made the very bad book readable, and I'm super looking forward to seeing him work on Spider-man.

I'm also real close to Sterenko on Shield. I've heard great things about that run.
