A thread for under the radar comics and there discussion.

Has anyone heard or read Trigger?

I remember it from a few years ago. It looked neat, but I forgot about it until I thought abut it randomly a few moments ago.

    I don't know how 'under the radar' they are, but I really enjoyed the first issues of 'Pirates of Coney Island', and 'Monster Cops.'

    You know what sounds neat?

    Zombies v.s. Robots.

    If I'm supposed to buy Marvel Zombies just because it has zombies in it, then I MUST buy this.

    I've been meaning to pick up Pirates of Coney Island. I'll finish collecting Blue Monday first, I guess?

    I liked the first issue of John Woo's 7 Brothers. Anita Blake #1 was really good, though I don't know if it counts.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Age of Bronze is really good if you like art history or the Illiad.

    Plus the art's gorgeous.

    Thrud the Barbarian!!

    Guess you could describe it as 'quirky', it's really rather funny, though I'm a bit confused about whats happening with the title. There have been, as far as I know, 4 issues made since 2002 in no set intervals, which are all written, drawn and coloured by Carl Critchlow, I actually heard he drove around the UK to distribute copies to comic shops himself. All four issues have now been re-released under some US indie distributor, and I think a fifth is on the way.

    Less Than Heroes by David Yurkovich. I don't know how 'under the radar' this is, but I picked it up on a whim at a convention with my last 7 euros.

    It's a nice take on the superhero genre. More like how 'heroes' would act if they were, you know, real people. The art has it's ups and downs, but generally has a nice style to it.

    The Winter Men. Does this still count after Ellis tells people to buy it? Still, I never see anyone bringing it up on the internets and that makes me sad panda. It's terribly good and beautifully Russian in all the right ways. I don't know how Brett Lewis understands the naturalistic dialog and tropes of russian fiction so well, but he does. If it ends in anything short of heart-rending tragedy in the snow, I will be shocked.

    Add in the sexiest fucking Spetsnaz olympic class assassin and Mongolian butt-fucking and I'm in.

    inthegray,

    I forgot to add Fell to my list, but I wasn't certain it was 'under the radar'. I checked out thieves and kings, just a sample chapter. The female lead is drawn badly. In some shots, the corner of her mouth touches the jawline and in others the way the face is drawn should make it so that she is looking in a different direction, but its actually as in a straight on shot.

    I didn't read much more than a few pages before it became too distracting.

    I basically tell my shop to add any comic that Oni Press puts out, ever since the days that Jamie Rich held sway as a merciless editor. While some of their releases, like the crime noir stuff, isn't usually my cup of tea, its always excellent, and opens me up to new things. Plus, some of their one-shot tpbs are really nice and cheap for what you're getting.

    Some of their stuff I've loved over the years: Blue Monday, Barry Ween, Skinwalker, Queen and Country, Courtney Crumrin, Scooter Girl, Scott Pilgrim, etc etc.
