^ I just googled Bruce Timm Evangelion and saw his Rei and Asuka. Those lips are kind of off-putting, makes them look older than they are, but overall they look good. Now that I think about that higher dimensional consciousness thing you wrote about Rei/Lilith, it seems like Morrison would be one of...

Now as for quietly DEAR... GOD... NO... Yeah, Quitely's style probably wouldn't work for Evangelion. Seeing the characters in his style would probably be weird. Those Kenneth Rocafort sketches on that other thread look awesome. Aside from the Evangelions, I think he would do some character ...

"Under the supervision of Hideaki Anno, _____ and _____ reinvent Evangelion as a western comic book, complete with Americanization of the core concept to suit the target audience, clear emotional breakdown of the creators as the series progress, commentary on geeks/nerds/dorks/whatevers and the...

The Batman/Wonder Woman pairing is exclusive to the animated universe, I think. Batman's main romantic interest (at least from what I've read) is Catwoman, with Talia al Ghul a close second. I say Catwoman because she's been around longer and it seems to be the general rule that ...

"Humans are obsolete and the Superior beings have come to replace them." is what people have been made to believe, including Magneto. It's pretty much been "people hate them, they rescue people, people love them, Magneto or whoever kills a bunch of people, people hate them, etc.&q...

Kingdom Come and Marvels are both great. Alex Ross only does the covers for it, but I recommend Astro City by Kurt Busiek, who also wrote Marvels. Officially WW is 6'0" (183 cm) with Superman at 6'3" (191 cm) and Batman an inch shorter than him. I'd always thoug...

George Perez WW added to my planned reading list. I'm also looking forward to Morrison's graphic novel. I highly recommend the New 52 Wonder Woman. It changes Diana's origins so now she was no longer made of clay enchanted by the gods, but was the lovechild of Zeus and Hippolyta, which m...

I really need to catch up with a lot of currently publishing series. I had to devote time to school and my spare time was usually spent watching anime, TV and movies. It's been like that for the better part of a year. From DC there's just Batman and Wonder Woman. I thought the Batman and Rob...

"they were a lame Doom Patrol rip-off." Right down to the crippled old guy. Is the GitS manga any good? I've only seen the first two movies, which I really liked. I think the manga's supposed to be different from the anime, with relatively more humor. And now I'm here. Do you ...

I just remembered that I also read an issue of Spider-Man (I don't know which title) where he and the Green Goblin were facing off in a rainy, dark knight. I'm pretty sure it had pencils by Humberto Ramos. The visual style really stuck with me, as it was different from the normal stu...

The Secret Origin of my Secret Love Affair With Comics: The first comic I ever read (and this was when I was really little, like 5 or 6) was an issue of Ultimate Spider-Man. It was weird, man. Spider-Man wasn't in it for most of the book and I think Doctor Octopus was in there. It was mo...

Hmm, I haven't read a lot of 80's books that haven't already been mentioned, but ^ pretty much sums it up. I read Kraven's Last Hunt a loooong time ago, so my memory is blurry, but I remember liking it a lot. It was published right after Watchmen ended so it's one of the "da...

I ended up getting that one too. I thought it would be a better choice over the Marvel Masterworks TPBs.

The beginning of course, like it was 1975 again, then decide after you've read Days of Future Past where it gets to be time to stop for you -- the title entered the downhill slide some time after that arc, with plot threads just getting left dangling everywhere, and frankly tedious characters b...

I'll be picking up Dini's run. I actually read Heart of Hush, which was pretty good. I think it was the final arc of his run? So I'll read the stuff that came before. I've been meaning to read the Detective Comics issues with Batwoman in them. I heard they're really good. My not ...

I'd forgotten that I'd read Ages of Thunder. :facepalm: I really liked how it felt like more of a retelling of Norse myth, rather than an actual modern superhero book. If I'm not mistaken, Fraction also wrote it. I've read Fear Itself and Siege, but excluded them because they're ...

I was wondering if I could get some recommendations for... The X-Men. I've read... Whedon's Astonishing run, Morrison's New X-Men, up to the conclusion of the Archangel saga of Remender's Uncanny X-Force, Wolverine & the X-Men, assorted Wolverine comics and Matt Fraction's ru...

I just finished Girlfriend of Steel . 7/10. I liked it, if only because I got to see what is basically a fan fiction of Evangelion in the form of a visual novel. But I suppose it can count as a game, despite the lack of actual gameplay. I chose the Asuka route, which was kind of awkwardly handled, i...

The Fifth Element and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas I'm kind of ashamed to say Fifth Element is the only Luc Besson movie I've seen when he's so damn prolific. I really need to watch Nikita and Leon: The Professional. It's an all-around great action movie, with strong humor as well...
