Comics

I got into comics thanks to the Batman Knightfall series and most of the trade paperbacks I own (don't buy monthlies) are from DC simply because of the quality of the writing. Favourite character is Batman along with Superman (when he's done right) and Green Lantern.

The only Marvel TPB I own is Alex Ross's Marvels. Compared to that, the DC stuff I own includes Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, the Golden Age, Batman: Black and White, Kingdom Come, Batman: Year One, Alan Moore's Superman stories, Batman: The Killing Joke and a bunch of others.

I'm looking to buy Jeph Loeb's The Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Superman:For All Seasons, Batman:Child of Dreams, John Byrne's Generations as well as James Robinson's Starman and Neil Gaiman's Sandman. Might pick up Akira too if I can get all the volumes cheap enough.

Marvel's never appealed to me. I picked up a few issues of Spider-Man during the indescribably awful Clones Saga (what the fuck were they smoking?) and was driven away for a long time. Around the time of Grant Morrison's excellent run on JLA (which I'm also collecting) I bought a couple of Silver Surfer and X-Men issues and they really sucked in comparison. The art was nice but the stories were just really bad, cliched sci-fi.

The Ultimates line has got a lot of good press but I still prefer Brand Ech.
