I'm bringing it back! I'd have used the old thread but the board seems to have eaten it. The premise is simple. I sugest a book to you, you suggest a book to me and we both go out and pick it up. Then compair if we liked them or not. Its a great way to get someone to try out a book you think they'd like or get a book thats under peoples radar some exposure.

So do I have any takers?

Sounds like a fun idea...

I'd play, but I just don't have the funds to pick up random books. Even if they are highly recommended.

I'm so all for it. I mean I cannot even begin to tell you how many books I've picked up just because Baxter, Seldes or DSF suggested. Hell---they're the ones who got me into DC/Vertigo.

Let's do this!!!!





BTW---My money is on the fact that this is another one of Baxter's ploys to get us to read Cassanova. :wink:

You read Punisher MAX? If not...search for the the Punisher MAX: Vol 5 TPB. It's called "The Slavers".


I thought that was the worst arc.

And thanks VVD. I guess I didn't recommend The Authority, Planetary, Fables, Y: The Last Man or Ex Machina. :wink:

Obviously being a mod and all it's god-like powers involved have driven you insane in the membrane. :lol:

No....you did. But I wouldn't have even looked at any of those if Bax hadn't gotten me into the DC universe in general.

The Goon. The Noir mini started this week.

Got my copy! :rockon:



I say everyone should check out "Freshmen" if possible. I thought it was hilarious.

I wish I had the money to take part in this. It looks fun. I recently made a list of all the series that I began collecting in trades and have yet to finish and it's quite astounding.

My obvious suggestion to anyone who hasn't read it is Promethea.

I'd always appreciated Moore and really enjoyed Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Miracleman and so on, but to be perfectly honest I can't say I've ever really "connected" with his work. I'm starting to feel it with Promethea.

I keep meaning to follow up on that. I have the first two trades...

Promethea is literally changing my outlook on life.

For instance, I'm trying not to use words like "fictional" and "real world", because according to Promethea, imagination is reality.

You are the man. Promethea was the thought provoking comic series I ever laid eyes on. Plus my Promethea avatar was better. I need to get the trades.

I have a trade if anyone's interested.
