    I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who reads something else than Marvel or DC?

    I read The Phantom ( Lee Falk) occasionally.

    Writers/artists that I enjoy are:

    Jean Giraud ~ Blueberry ( under the pseudonym of Moebius). Fine artwork, good story.

    Derib ~ I especially recommend "Red Road", a modern day western. Yes, there's violence, booze and racism, and the artwork is fab.

    Frank Robbins ~ Johnny Hazard. He's also been working on Ghostrider and Captain America.

    Hergé ~ Tintin.

    Chauvin and Lambil ~ Les Tuniques Bleues/The Blue Tunics.

    Goscinny ~ Lucky Luke ( with Morris) and Asterix ( with Uderzo).

    And before I forget, here's Lambiek.net's comiclopedia

    So...what are you reading when not flipping through the "run of the mill" superhero comics.

    I greatly enjoy "Valerian and Lorelie". A French SF comic whith AMAZING visuals made by two guys I can't spell the names of.

    Then I have scourges of manga on my list that I won't name here because there would be a BIG list.

    Otherwise I enjoyed the majority of stuff from Crossgen.

    Oh, you mean "Linda och Valentin"? Their creators are Jean-Claude Mézières and Pierre Christin.

    I agree. It's awesome. :D

    Battle Pope was Robert Kirkman's first book before he became popular for INVINCIBLE, WALKING DEAD, and MARVEL TEAM-UP.

    Oh, anouther Swede. Yeah, it is. But I figured these other fellows would know the real translated title better.

    But I really wonder whats up whith the French title because Linda/Lorelie DEFINITLY takes up more space than Valentin/Valerian. :thumb

    Well, actually the original title is just "Valerian". Btw, I came across a selection of mint condition albums of that title, today. 80 SEK. Too bad my wallet's starving at the moment, or I'd buy 'em.

    Hmm Well I know I do have the first Issue of NFL Superpro. From some random comic grab bag type things I got this one book about a little guy in a yellow suit, no superhero action but it's just WEIRD.

    Been buying a bunch of Harley Quinn comics lately. Yes the Dodsons do some great work and well I like Harley and I did get her first issue awhile back when it first started. I'm still hunting down issues too.

    I do need to find my "Officer Down" books and try to figure out which parts I'm missing, I thought it was a good story.

    Old GI Joe books, TF, Titans, Early Tim Drake Batman books (think before he becomes robin.) and a few others. ( a nice origina tale of Dolphin is in one book)

    You're supposed to mention stuff you read that's not DC and Marvel.

    My top books would have to be Gold Digger, Ninja Highschool, and Street Fighter. Most Antarctic Press books are good. Tails from Darkwood is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. It's tagline of "A fairytale for bastards." couldn't be truer.

    I used to love "Tug and Buster" and "Gregory", those were pretty much the only non superhero comics I used to read.
