I have read Lone Wolf and Cub, Fake, Trinity Blood, and City Hunter. I started enjoying anime when I was in high school. I started watching the cut-and-paste series called Robotech on television. Channel 13, I believe. It caught my attention, transforming mecha and a love triangle. Before that, I watched Battle of the Planets and Star Blazers when I was a kid. It was so different. I was hooked. Sorry, Bugs Bunny.
Frankly, I started with DC and Marvel comics. X-Men and the Dark Knight. But a friend introduced me to manga with Fushigi Yuugi and Revolutionary Girl Utena. It was okay. Eventually, I was in a local manga/anime shop and the owner, Nina, suggested I read Fake. That was the start of it for me...

Haha, I forgot all about City Hunter, I've read some of that, it was really funny. Started out with MARVEL and DC huh? Thats cool.

I love MARVEL comics, the only DC titles I've ever liked are Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, Lobo, The Creeper and Batman...



So anywayz welcome, join date doesn't mean a whole lot around here, I just stated posting recently so I'm kinda new too.

How about Hellboy? I thought the movies were cool. Let me think. I always preferred Batman over Superman. Perhaps it was because of his dark nature, the whole split persona between Bruce Wayne and the Dark Knight. I enjoy a strong plot, whether it is a manga, comic, or fiction. I want to understand the main characters, their motives and backgrounds. I am a serious reading addict, and I write short stories to amuse myself.
Sweep Thing? I vaguely remember it. How about Wolverine and Gambit? Those are my favorite characters from the X-Men. Storm, Rogue, and Psylocke were strong women. I cannot understand wimpy women, who cling to men, and expect him to protect her from the villain. Puke!
City Hunter was funny. My friend Lisa and I always called him "Mister Horny". Can I say that? Apologies, if anyone is offended. We have code names for a lot of the manga characters. We will be heading up to the Anime Expo in Los Angeles over the July 4th weekend. It should be a blast. I am saving my money now. I am hoping to carry off a huge bag full of goodies...

Hi there, yellow dancer. Nice ta meet ya! I started with comics the same way, with Gaiman's Sandman. Still the bestest series out there in American comics. I'm a HUGE fan of DC's Vertigo. Hellblazer, Swamp Thing, Death, V for Vendetta, Fables, WE3... the list goes on and on! I also really like Hellboy. Gotta confess I'm not a big fan of Marvel except for their adaption of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. And my comic guilty pleasure is Frank Miller's Sin City. Can't go wrong with Miller. Haven't gotten to his samurai story Ronin yet but can't wait.

Hellboy is good. He's Dark Horse though. And I loved the movies, especially the second one.

Bub, you just mentioned two of my favorites! Now you're speakin' my language. Captain America, Punisher, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Silver Surfer, Nick Fury, Spider-Man...the list goes on and on.

Ha, I like my damsels in distress, but meh.

I think that was my nickname in highschool.

Gaiman does have mad skills, I just found out the other day that he wrote a 3 part mini Alice Cooper series for MARVEL! Isn't that weird? I wonder if it's any good...

Yeah their Vertigo imprint is about the only I like about them. I tend to separate the two since the vertigo characters aren't really "super heroes" per se, and MARVEL definitely has them beat in that department.

Frank a guilty pleasure? Really? Not for me, he's the best in the biz as far I'm concerned. You should check out Daredevil: Born Again, it's one his masterpieces.

Ronin is awesome, you're in for a treat.

Apologies, Pluto VIII. Superman is still "the Man of Steel". And he can hang out with Wonder Woman.
Nick Fury! He was soooo hot. I wanted to be an agent of S.H.I.E.LD. when I was a kid. Wait, I still do...

Hello, exsanguinate. Sin City? Was that made into a movie. It sounds familiar. Sorry, Stephen King creeps me out. I have never read his books. I made the mistake of watching his movies. Now I have nightmares about cars and dogs. I have not heard of Ronin. A story about a masterless samurai? I will have to check it out.
