I've been talking with friends recently (yesterday) and we were discussing comics that we like. Some people only read webcomics, come people only read physical comics. Most of us read a mixture of both. Anyway, some great suggestions were made and I was thinking we should share too! Here are some of the comics I like:


Johnny Wander
Lackadaisy (Warning, there is some cussing)
Gunnerkrigg court…
Hanna is not a Boy's Name (Warning: significant swearing)

Physical Comics

Joe the Barbarian
Death Note
Marvelous Land of Oz

Hey, why don't we share some music as well?
Some songs that I like are:

See You Tomorrow by John Powell
Two Weeks in Hawaii by Hellogoodbye

Singing in the Rain by Mint Royale

Here's some of my list again:
Popeye, originals

Some more that I've read:
Cardcaptor Sakura
The Mighty Thor
Silver Surfer
American Born Chinese

Wish I'd read:
Spiderman (originals, pre-70s)
Hikkatsu vol 2-3

My uncle is/was actually a rabid comic collector. On a family vacation they made a special stop for him to purchase an original issue of the first Amazing Spiderman. Pretty neat, if you ask me.

Haha, rabid comic collector! That sounds pretty scary!

Haha, just kidding. I've only met him a few times. But he sounds like a super-nerd. Her family was into super-heroes, and they liked UltraMan, Speed Racer, etc. So I guess I come by it honestly. (I REALLY love superheroes. I enjoyed the Cape so much more than I thought I was going to, it should probably be illegal. YAAAY The Cape!!)

Sorry about that. Oversight.

Yeah. Actually, Popeye was originally a newspaper comic. And it was originally not about Popeye. Castor Oyl was taking his Whiffle Hen to a deadly gambling island so he could use its good luck to become filthy rich. Popeye was the unfortunate soul who captained the creaking tub they set sail aboard. But he was so cool, he became the main character. (A stowaway badguy shot him, he dropped... And then he got back up and tried to fight him. Got shot again, like eight times. Got back up and totally nailed the guy. No spinach needed.)

Oversight? I meant that I wasn't aware that it didn't start out as a TV show.

But whoa, Popeye is hardcore man.

No, no, no. Oversight on my part about that last comment, which you had to shut down. Usually I'm better about that.

Re: Popeye: I know, man. I know. Kinda reminds me of a slapstick Ashitaka. (The spinach thing started because Popeye has a soft spot for kids. One day, he was talking to some and they wanted to know why he was so strong and he said it's because he ate his spinach like his mom told him to. Trying to be a role model. It was later turned into a kind of magic pill by the cartoons, but the real story is that Popeye is just that awesome. Just sayin'.)

Nice! There are some here that I've never even heard of before! Thanks!
legacystar-reborn Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2011
Which ones hadn't you heard of? I'm curious.
LightlyBow Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2011  Student
Hadn't heard of Three Panel Soul, Player Vs Player, Pictures for Sad Children, Secret Asian Man, Frazz, and Maid-Sama!.

I also read Shaman king! There's some good stuff in there!
legacystar-reborn Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2011
Tee hee, Shaman King was my first.

PvP is an awesome character based gaming comic, 3PS is artistically beautiful, SAM is a bit silly, but has a nice overall message, PFSC is good morbid fun, Frazz is just a delight, and Maid-Sama! is for being girly :P.
