    As the economy tightens up, it seems people are raping their collections for bottom-dollar sales. I've been reading a full run of DC's first Star Trek series, which I copped for like 10 bucks. I had my doubts but it's an awesome read, good enough to cast a pall over alot of the current bullshit I try.

    Wondering if you guys have found any good stuff from the era, any genre.

    Yeah, read a good deal of it some time ago, but the only stand-out ones i can recall is Alan Moore's work and the X-Men. :dunno:

    Oh, yes, Alan Moore. I have a stack of V for Vendetta in the wings. That Swamp Thing GN looks pretty tasty too.

    tpb's are working more and more for me. They're female-friendly on bookshelfs, rather than having boxes of shit. I still love the floppies though.

    Indeed. Any one of them would be totally appalled if I was caught perving out over a stack of bronze age books, shirtless and unshowered :mamoru:


    Wow, another good one -- DP7 was really kind of awesome. Hard to believe it was a part of that whole "New Universe" shitheap. I'll definitely look for some more of Mark Gruenwald's work.

    and I second or third some 80s X-men, Claremont is his prime made some amazing material and created some of the greatest x-men ever. not to mention gave wolverine his first solo adventure which cast him as an ex-samurai :bigthumb:

    I'm ashamed to say I've only recently read some Claremont (well, as an adult anyway). Very impressive writer.

    stay away from his current stuff...he should have called it quits after X-Men: The End, which was a little hokey in its' own right, but I enjoyed it.

    The dude created almost every heavy hitter on the x-men since it's inception.
