    I just started to read the Powers series. I love the concept ;a couple of average cops in a world where superpowered individuals are part of the norm. They appear in newspapeers, give endorsements, and combat crime. It's well written, and very entertaining.

    I've been reading a lot of crime comics, lately. Dynamite is doing a good job reviving the pulp titles of the 30s. Masks is really good as is The Shadow: Year One. I just read the first two issues of The Black Beetle today and the new Green Hornet (Mark Waid is writing it), which is really good. The new storyline of Green Arrow is good.

    I just read the 5th collection of Locke and Key, which is the best series I've read in years. Terrific writing, excellent artwork and inking. There are homages to both "Doom Patrol" and "Calvin and Hobbes". The story has been beautifully paced, with revelations slowly building the suspense.

    Also, Joe Hill is a considerably better writer than his father :)

    Of course. After Y The Last Man, anything Vaughn does gets a read from me.

    I really, really was underwhelmed by Y. It wasn't bad, the writing and art was both acceptable, but that was it. I didn't see the point for its existence.

    I agree and disagree.

    It was underwhelming because the art sucked. The writing was pretty good though.

    Never really been into comics, ever...but I recently picked up The Invisibles by Grant Morrison. I like it a lot.
