Hey I saw that a few of you have read The Road, what did you guys think? I just bought that and am about to start it and I hear it's fantastic.

Besides my current weekly comics that I get (which basically consists of anything by Morrison, Millar, Strazynski, and Johns) I haven't had the time to really dive into something lengthy until now. So along with The Road I'm about to start Alan Moore's Promethea. After that I'd like to finish Garth Ennis's Preacher and Grant Morrison's The Invisibles.

Has anyone else read Promethea?

Also I saw someone mention the Absolute Edition of Watchmen. I just got that through ebay and was really disappointed with the changes that DC made to the new editions. The smiley face that was originally on it has been replaced by the clock on both sides. Just doesn't look as good. But thats just the super nerd in me talking.

I am currently reading Watchmen for the second time mainly because it is amazing and I thought I missed a few things. I am planning on picking up the Sandman soon and I am reading the Dark Tower right now (very good by the way).

The Road is a great book. Sad and depressing as well. Gives of a perfect post-apocalyptic vibe methinks (and I love everything post-apoc)

Right now I am reading the Commemorative Edition Necronomicon, containing the "weirdest tales" of H.P. Lovecraft. That guy was a genius.

Currently I am reading many things. Watchmen, of course, because I will be continuously re-reading it until the movie comes out. I am also reading the first volume of Preacher (awesome stuff, I recommend it) and Miracleman (also recommended, though it's obvious this is before Moore fully developed as a writer). As for non-graphic novels, I am reading In The Lake Of The Woods by Tim O'Brien, with a few Neil Gaiman books lined up to read upon completion.

I just finished 'V for Vendetta', had been a long time between reads of that. So damn good. Had Hugo Weaving's voice in my head as V throughout, which was fine. Nice to take away something good from that movie.

Currently reading 'The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao', by Junot Diaz, which is fantastic (thanks to whoever it was on this forum who reccomended it!). Planning to re-read 'The Savage Detectives' by Roberto Bolano after that, unless I find myself buying his final novel '2666' before then.

All are very enjoyable thus far.

The Resurrectionist utilizes a "comic within a novel" that is even more effective than Watchmen's "comic with a comic".

O'Connell's a very underrated author. So far, he's managed to completely dissect language (his favorite topic), pornography, serial killer worship, The Holocaust (and other genocide) and comic books in just five novels.

Word Made Flesh is still my personal favorite, but The Resurrectionist is right up there with it.

Just read Top 10: The forty niners. (Lots of cool easter eggs in that one!)

Just started The Invisibles 7: The Invisible Kingdom.

Still reading H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. (Lots of familiar placenames at the beginning, as it's situated where I grew up).

About to start Iain M. Banks' Look to Windward.

Just picked up the new Farscape comic - takes place right after the Peacekeeper Wars.

Damn I miss that show...

just read marvel 1985 last night, in one sitting. i normally can't read a six part comic series in one siting, perhaps that is a testament to how good it is. i really did like it. the twist is great too.
