Hi all newbie alert

Post by darthmilo »

Hi All.
New to the site thanks to mcgroupy for steering me here.
I live in the south east of England and love reading comic books. More Marvel than DC plus anything Star Wars related.
I'm open to suggestions for any titles that people feel are a must read. I was put onto the boys by a friend and loved it from cover to cover.
Thanks for having me and I look forward to being part of the community.

Welcome along.

Yeah, The Boys was fantastic. Looking forward to what they do with the TV show - Karl Urban wasn’t my first thought for Billy but he’s a great actor so should be interesting!

I know I mention it a lot, but Southern Bastards is a great (violent) read, without the superheroes.

Hiya fellow Pounder and Marvelite!
If you're looking for some good hardcore stuff in the vein of The Boys, I'd recommend hunting down all of the Punisher Max books by Ennis, and for some third-party stuff I'd recommend Preacher. Also, since you're into Star Wars, I'm betting you might enjoy the first 3 or 4 Aliens series that Dark Horse put out, as well as the first AvP series they did. You'll want to consider them as an alternate reality, but they are damn good (IMHO).

Loved Southern Bastards. I was put on to that from the pound. Now that would make some great viewing

I think the Ennis Punisher Max series is probably one of the greatest runs ever. Huge fan of that. Gotta love those TPB's too!
