Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
OK so it's been a full decade since the birth of the new millenium and we've seen a lot of comic books in the last ten years. Some have been good, some have been bad, and some have been downright ugly to coin a phrase, but some have been truly excellent.
There is a hallowed selection of comic books which are considered to be the true greats, classic examples of the best of the medium. Manyof these are superhero comics, many are not, but all of them show just how great this style of storytelling can be. Books on the level of Watchmen, Fourth World and the original Kirby/Lee Fantastic Four issues are what every writer aspires to, but in the last ten years, how many have succeded?
This thread is here for us to talk about the best comic books of the last decade, ones which we think should be included amongst the great works of the last millenium. Maybe here we can discuss as well what we consider to be these great works too.
So post your suggestions!
My suggestions are...
All-Star Superman. I personally think this is one of the best comic I have ever read and a really great, intelligent story from perhaps arguably greatest comic book writer working right now. Simply a great story with wonderful art, and lots of fun to read.
The Sentry miniseries by Paul Jenkins. Yeah yeah I know a lot of people derided the Sentry later on but this mini-series is really great and Jae Lee is fantastic when it comes to the artwork.
Nextwave, because it's crazy but really, really good and a great deconstruction of superheroes which manages to avoid being overly serious and grim.
