I never knew this one existed but it's now my favorite. Just look at that sick burn that made Sister Bear cry.

comicexplain
why is superman wearing a tshirt and can only jump places. i thought it was like a different earth in batman superman, but superman wonderwoman randomly just cut to that in 2015.

how much of an ass do you think that batman will be now that he's the bat-god?

Why is grifter wearing a deadpool facecloth?
#7180 to #7179 - comicexplain (08/25/2015) [-]
Because people are terrible, and keep trying to ruin what's been established forever.

He's been a Batgod before!

It's actually his own little facecloth, and has been wearing it un-atributed to Wade!

i just read identity crisis... i think i need a hug...
I also read the first few issues of black lantern. I am curious to know the issues where elongate man or whatever his name is dies, and am very curious to see how he enters his psychosis and mind starts to shatter.

Also I had never heard of Jean before, but wish she was in the new 52. She is a boss ass bitch.
#7181 to #7180 - hirollin (08/25/2015) [-]
hes been on the mobius chair before?
who came first? grifter or wade? because i very much am enjoying grifter and his shit.

not enjoying deadshot taking out superman with armor peircing bullets

am enjoying wonderwomans new costume, but iv never really given a shit about wonderwoman, it's just a shit ton better than a fucking t-shirt, so really anything would look decent on her compared to superman.

Anybody else read this?
User avatar #7186 to #7178 - supahsayin (08/28/2015) [-]
No, not yet. What's it about?
User avatar #7187 to #7186 - ireallylikepotatoe ONLINE (08/28/2015) [-]
Bloke pepsis but then isn't pepsi.

It's an interesting read. I'm not sure if I actually liked it or not.
User avatar #7165 - thefunnyside (08/20/2015) [-]
What are some good post apocalyptic books? The most recent one I've read was Station Eleven and I really liked it
User avatar #7188 to #7165 - thethirddoctor (08/30/2015) [-]
What genre? I'm not that into fantasy and popular fiction anymore, but I really enjoyed The Road by Cormack McCarthy.
User avatar #7174 to #7165 - dasistwunderbar (08/23/2015) [-]
Wool was pretty amazing.
User avatar #7172 to #7165 - mindsculptorjace (08/22/2015) [-]
if you also like Sci-fi/gaming type stuff, check out Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline.

I just read it and it was awesome.
User avatar #7173 to #7172 - dasistwunderbar (08/23/2015) [-]
Oh my golly gosh, not only is Ready Player One pure tripe, it's not even post-apocalyptic.
User avatar #7175 to #7173 - mindsculptorjace (08/23/2015) [-]
It's damn close enough to it, in my opinion.


and I'm sorry you didn't like it, but I've always known I had shit taste in entertainment, so there's no surprise there.
User avatar #7170 to #7165 - herecomesjohnny (08/22/2015) [-]
The Road is wonderful prose and a really touching minimalist story, gotta love it. And then I read that story 'A boy and his dog' by Ellison which is dark and fucked up and a fun read.
#7169 to #7165 - anon (08/21/2015) [-]
I'm currently reading "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy
User avatar #7183 to #7169 - viktordiaz (08/25/2015) [-]
that book was awesome
#7168 to #7165 - anon (08/21/2015) [-]
Metro series?
User avatar #7160 - hirollin (08/19/2015) [-]
comicexplain, just finished dc futures end, and it was fucking awesome. I love one offs with little to no tie ins, especially when it's newish that the reading order hasn't been established. do you know of anything similar to future's end? I'd love to keep at it.
User avatar #7161 to #7160 - comicexplain (08/19/2015) [-]
It's its own little thing, I'm afraid! However, I can recommend a few interesting things. Not quite what you're looking for, but...!

Currently finishing up the justice league stuff. they really should have given an advanced reading order, it was fucking terribad trying to read that shit in order.

Is there a comic on Earth 2 and what happened to them prior to the events of futures end?
User avatar #7163 to #7162 - comicexplain (08/19/2015) [-]
There's an Earth 2 comic, yes! Great series, too.

okey, ive been reading Batman V Superman and around chapter 20/22 thigns just got fucking weird again and i have no idea whats happenidng anymore.....if comicexplain or someone else could explain wtf is happening that would be great
User avatar #7153 to #7152 - comicexplain (08/18/2015) [-]
Ehhh. This is all a part of the 'next step up', and that Batman is actually Gordon, with implants and whatnot. It's plenty disappointing, and with luck, the status quo will once more be established! Till then, whatcha wanna know?
User avatar #7156 to #7153 - payseht (08/18/2015) [-]
is all 52 such a tangled mess...? I've attempted several times to get into it since it came out and gave up each time when I realized my pull list needs to be of mostly unwanted titles just to keep up with what's going on...
Superman Unchained was great, though (and Court of the Owls)
User avatar #7158 to #7156 - comicexplain (08/18/2015) [-]
There's a -ton- of great New 52 stuff! However, a lot of it's not exactly edible, though they certainly try to shove it down our throats... I -loved- Forever Evil, Wonder Woman, Superman and Wonder woman (Their romance was perfect, in my eyes), and so on! batman's great, including Eternal!
User avatar #7155 to #7153 - ssheinrich (08/18/2015) [-]
nah, i dont need anymore if thats whats happending

Fuckin' no mate.

yeah that was retarded

however his description of the cleganebowl was pretty bad ass
#7136 - fruzzinoid (08/15/2015) [-]
Comicexplain, I'm freakin' out here.

Okay- Starlord has this gun. It's an Element gun. Given to him by his father. Only he can wield it. This we know.
Why does movie Starlord have two? Why does his gun keep changing in the comics? Which one is real? Guardians Team-Up #9 is confusing the hell out of me.
How many dis nigga got?
#7137 to #7136 - fruzzinoid (08/15/2015) [-]
And sometimes it looks like this??
User avatar #7138 to #7137 - comicexplain (08/15/2015) [-]
The movie thought it would be cool if he had two, and so they gave him two! As for the REAL element gun, I'm afraid that was destroyed years ago - If he ever uses one, they're typically temporary prototypes, unless that changed in very recent comics!
#7139 to #7138 - fruzzinoid (08/15/2015) [-]
Recent comics appear to refer to... whatever he's got.- as THE element gun.

Could it just be that the writers at Marvel have no idea what they're doing with this?
User avatar #7140 to #7139 - comicexplain (08/15/2015) [-]
That's curious! Looks like they decided to repen him after the movie. Sounds like reality being displaced in current continuality is effecting Star-Lord as well! I'll research this a little more before giving you a solid answer.
#7142 to #7140 - fruzzinoid (08/15/2015) [-]
But wait! It gets curiouser and curiouser.
In Guardians Team Up 9, the plot revolves on the Black Cat having stolen THE Element Gun from Starlord's Ship. (Disguised as Spiderman for some reason).
In the opening panels of the comic, Starlord is shown using one of the newer movie style guns to shoot at Spiderman, demanding that he hand over the stolen Element gun.
Pic related, "The Element Gun" from Guardians Team Up 9.
So, we have contradictions here. In the panel above, he refers to the new style as "The Element gun" but in Guardians team up 9, "The Element Gun" looks totes different, and he's using what appears to be the newer style to shoot at Spidey.
So basically Marve's fuckin' up with the continuity and they're trying to fix it.
User avatar #7141 to #7140 - fruzzinoid (08/15/2015) [-]
Bein' real with you, I don't think there IS a solid answer.
I think Marvel just fucked up.
#7134 - themarineelite (08/14/2015) [-]
As of the last month, I have gained a massive interest in Batman. I have to say though that my favorite Anti-Hero would have to be the Red Hood. For Villain, I am a fan of deathstroke and the Joker obviously, how could you not?
User avatar #7151 to #7134 - mondominiman (08/17/2015) [-]
I love batman and it's lore but I just don't read the comics. I want to but I don't know where to start since it's been out for so long.
User avatar #7157 to #7151 - payseht (08/18/2015) [-]
new 52 rebooted the franchise. Could try as it's fairly recent since #1 started.
Highly recommend court of the owls

Reminders for any bookworms out there:
www.thriftbooks.com/ is full of cheap as hell books - The reason is that they're used, but they should definitely all be in good enough condition to be read properly.
www.gutenberg.org/ Is the place you want to be at if you want to catch up on free online copies of the classics.
www.shmoop.com/ so far this website is an all around great educational utility; there's a cool feature where you're guided through a simplified analyzation of many pieces that might confuse the layman - All of the classics and the like, excellent if you have a hard time getting through archaic phrasing, advanced vocabulary, and scrying underlying themes of a written work
www.vocabulary.com/ A tool for expanding your (hopefully, you've actively clicked on a chat forum for reading and wriiting) already large vocabulary

Lel. Also, I've been curious about some basic info on you. What Country you're from, experience in writing, educational progress(high school, college, graduate, in a career), and if you play League of Legends. I am a fucking addict to that game, and that'd be useful if we could talk about literature and writing(or just whatever, I'm not obsessive all the time) while we play the game.

I just wrote this:

"This is a blanket to my heart. Even during the summertime, my heart is mostly cold and freezing because of instead of donating blankets, they throw snowballs at it, expecting it to throw snowballs like the rest of them at other people attempting to make a blanket. Well, I can say that for now, and for a very long time, my heart has a full blanket atop of it, up to the neck, and has no plans on awakening anytime soon.

As we are all of this earth, I give my extra material and then some to the fellow creatures that are on the path of awakening... to open up, and ask if they are beloved, I say to them, "you are".

The blanket on my heart always has room for all who seek warmth..."

Recommendations for funny fantasy books? (ones that are actually good and manages to be genuinely funny, too.)

I've only read 2, both short stories in the same series - "Splatter Elf." (I recommend this to anyone into weird fantasy and dark humour. The link to book 1 if anyone wants: www.amazon.com/Unicorn-Eater-Weird-Tale-Splatter-E )
User avatar #7176 to #7119 - ireallylikepotatoe ONLINE (08/25/2015) [-]
The Lies of Locke Lamora is fantastic

Read it, I didn't like it very much.
The "nice bird, arsehole" bit was very funny, though.

Can anyone help find a link to a free college textbook pdf download? It's called Elementary Statistics 12th edition by Mario F Triola. Book is fucking expensive to get ($21 for renting it, and it's 90% off its original price). It's the one with the row of red kites on its cover.

In This Thread: Recommendations for short, yet powerful reads.

Unfortunately I haven't been reading anything non-school related, but I really enjoyed Night by elie weisel, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.
User avatar #7189 to #7116 - thethirddoctor (08/30/2015) [-]
By Night in Chile - Roberto Bolaño
Foe - J.M. Coetzee
An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter - César Aira

I'm into Latin-American literature at the moment.
Everything by Bolaño is just so good.

COMICS

Highly recommend: Saga and Trees

Highly-er recommend Invincible (though consider stopping after a little over issue 100) and Indestructible (the only one on this list that's finished and not ongoing)

Currently reading besides the already mentioned ones : Injustice (it's getting to the point where I feel the story is dragging a little. Feels like SPOILER the issue of evil Superman should have been resolved a long time ago ). Can't quite bring myself to recommending it until the run is over, after which point (if it continues being this good) it gets a gold star and shoved in your face to binge on the entire series.

ITT: Whatcha readin', and whatcha gonna read?

I liked the first set but after they switched I couldn't really get into it

My dad would recommend this. Good art

Recently I got done reading a collection of Marvel's Thunderbolts and The Astonishing Ant Man.
Really liked Thunderbolts especially when Hawkeye was leading the team.
Ant Man was pretty cool, makes me hype when Scotts run will start up again real soon.

Right now I got nothing new to read and I really am not sure what I should get next, maybe some some sy-fi junk or something.

I recently finished Spec Ops: The Line and was utterly blown away by it as a fourth-wall breaking, absolutely brilliant piece of storytelling. After I completed it, I discovered it was based on Heart of Darkness and I've set about to read the short novella. Anybody here read it?
User avatar #7185 to #7109 - hourlyb (08/28/2015) [-]
I have.
Good read, but it's doesn't have same twist that Spec Ops does.
User avatar #7111 to #7109 - ithinkimightbelost (08/07/2015) [-]
I haven't read it in a while, at least a few years. It's not bad, a classic book. You can find it over at Project Gutenberg or just about anywhere else where you can read classic literature online.
