Sorry grasking. Are comic books more of a guy thing? Not to be sexist, but when I was a little girl, I would read comic books, but they always belonged to some boy. The only comic books I would purchase myself were spooky ones with a Tales from the Crypt or Creepshow feel to them.

Well and of course, I'm buying some comic books now, but I haven't read any of them yet.

Weigh in ladies. Are you comic book readers and faithful fans?

I've only ever bought horror comics, zombie comics and now- DT comics. :)
Well, MAD magazine as a young girl, too.

Laura, if you like zombie stories you should read, if you haven't already, Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman.

Yeah, Dana, I would say comics are more of a guy thing. There really are a lot of great comics being published right now.
If you're a Lost fan you might want to check out some of Brian K. Vaughn's stuff.

Ok, I'll check it out- thanks. :)

Do you happen to remember a series done in the late 80's early 90's that always had 2 covers- one plain and one extreme? I only know it was a zombie com and I loved it. I had them all and loaned them to a "friend" who later told me he'd given them back already! Grrrr :evil:

A lesson for all of you:

Do NOT loan books and comics. I am so weird about lending books. People don't respect books.

And, I'm currently reading a series of books that if the person who owned them didn't lend them to me, I probably wouldn't have gotten to read them until they were published in the U.S.

I will revise the above statement.

Only lend books to ME.

I don't recall.

When I lend books, I don't expect to get them back.

Wow. That's very Zen. Isn't it? what the hell does that mean? That's a good way to be. Release it to the world and don't get hung up on material things. Good way to be.

My little fingers grip my books so tight, I have arthritis.

Lend- to loan out with an expectation of receiving your item(s) back.

Give- to give away with no expectation of ever receiving the item back.

If someone asks to borrow a book I usually comply. If they return the book fine, if not; that's fine too.
There are a few books that are off limits. 20th Century Ghosts is one. Unless you're family.

Grasking- I found copies of the zombie comic I was asking you about! I had them in plastic, buried under all of my Fangorias!! They're called Deadworld and I still have 1-9 and 18. The guy who 'borrowed' them quit buying them and had wanted to read what he missed, so he still has 10-17. I must've quit buying after that.

Here's a few covers:

Do you remember seeing them before? I'm going to sell some of my old Horror Mags and comics, if there's interest. I'm putting them up on Craigslist and cheapcycle just to see what happens. I have every issue of Gore Zone, Slaughter House, Toxic Horror and then some Clive Barker graphic novels and comics, Rex Miller's Chaingang and some Tales From the Crypt and Vault of Horrors. Who knows? I only know that mine have been sitting for years and I'm happy to go through my Fangos so why not let these go?

Anyway, just thought you might be interested in seeing the Deadworlds and wondered if they rang a bell... :)
