No offense taken mate, I mean, I can't stand Grant Morrison and his gigantomania, making everything either as big and shiny as possible or as weird and incomprehensible as possible, and that's definitely isn't majority opinion eitherBTW, how to put things, let's say I appreciate that everybody has his own tastes, when I shit on Snyder, I really really don't want to disrespect anyone.
I've been reading the Golden Kamuy manga and I like the pace and art of it.I've been reading Golden Kamui at #senpai's recommendation. Enjoying it, but I think I'll switch to anime. I've recently read Pluto (great reimagining of a classic manga) and Berserk (lives up to the hype and then some)
Eyyy I should read this.Don't mind me, just passing through and posting some Hakaijuu pics

Recently, David DeGrand, one of the editors of MAD magazine announced that the magazine will no longer be published to newsstands and will be sold at comic book stores.
I like this guy.I have read most of The Sandman, Lucifier, Y The Last Man, Ex Machina, Transmetropolitan, some Chester Brown, a ton of Simon Hanselmann, Saga, Papergirls, a lot of horror comics, Snotgirl, recently The new Buffy series, Life is Strange, probably read about a trade book a week since 2013 from the library so.... Hundreds?
I read DMZ a long time ago. Long, long ago (8+ years). I remember the main plot points but most of the nuance is just kind of a memory soup to me right now. I didn't care for the ending when I first read it and while that's what has mostly stuck with me, I have a bit of a soft parts for the plotlines and characters I liked. "Grandsons" lol.I like this guy.
I recently finished DMZ (after having read it on and off for a while). I really liked it.
No lie detected. I need tonget back to my comic book read up.Golden Kamuy is good stuff, I need to pick that up again
Oh yeah. I don't read a lot of manga but that's mostly because I'm too busy reading the big bright and colorful western trade books/comics. Plus I always have a like a five minute adjustment period for trying to read right to left and to get the flow of the different panels. Totally worth it for Golden Kamuy, one of the more exciting books I've read in awhile. The action sequences almost seem to leap off the page, as cliche as that sounds.Golden Kamuy is good stuff, I need to pick that up again
I like LMS mostly because there is a sense of outlandish stuff that happens in it that don't happen in some other series. That mainly revolves around the sword noobs though.I'm slowly progressing through LMS and at the second volume it starts to show the signs of being a typical wishfullfilment trash. The MMO stuff is interesting, but when it comes to stuff outside of the game we have:
1) MC being against GMO products (but eating rice after pesticides treatment is apparently ok).
2) MC being an alpha male who apparently capable of kicking asses of multiple gangbangers.
3) MC being super determined, hard-working badass to the point of Japanese salarymen dying out of jealousy.
4) Every woman wants MC, because he's an MC.
5) The little sister wants big brother's D.
6) Bosses are nothing to our hero. The boss has 5 billion hp and the MC is on 5 thousand, don't fret, the hero is going to be fine.
Why is LN scene is choke full of this shit? For every Durarara and Baccano there are hundreds of SAO and LMS.
Solo Leveling has such fantastic artworkThere was once this webtoon that I read called Solo Leveling, it seems to be based off an LN. The premise of the series is not bad but it did focus on the MC being very weak (the LN likely did a lot more world building) and then they go into a dungeon that whole dungeon part was cool but then it switches gears and talks about this whole other stuff. So at least in the webtoon you don't really know all that much about the world and then they introduce all of this other stuff that is not known in this world.
I don't know because of the Korean series that I have read it's not that common, what is common though is having a sick relative and having to take care of a younger sibling all while trying some dangerous work in order to financially support the family.Solo Leveling has such fantastic artwork
The LN isn't really different in terms of world-building. Mainly because the world in Solo Leveling isn't really novel, but just a common Korean trope. At least it looks like that, because it's the 3rd story with pretty much the exact same premise of the world:
One day dungeons appear on Earth and alongside them humans get magic and other abilities. If dungeons aren't cleared after some time, the monsters within them can break out and cause mayhem in the human world. That's pretty much it.
