Thought this was Swamp Thing when I first saw the thumbnail. lol

Not one for Lovecraft stuff myself but I do loves me some Gravity Falls I dare say.

Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette are shooting it out the ballpark with the series :)

I'm intrigued by the Cthulhu Mythos, but I dislike it's tendency to belittle humanity. We're nothing special, but neither are we meaningless.

Honestly I can't say I'm a fan. I like Swamp-Thing's visual but I've never really gotten the appeal. As for Snyder and Paquette, well Snyder's fine but I've never been able to fall in love with his writing like some do. Paquette is pretty solid but after his awful X-Men stuff it took me a while to warm up to the guy's work at DC.

Really liked Animal Man for a while though. But it pretty much came to a standstill for several months waiting for Swamp-Thing to catch up so they could crossover. Kind of killed the book for me.

There's some inherently unpleasant about it to me. Not that unpleasantness can't have it's place in fiction I suppose, it's just if that's supposed to be the selling point I can't say I'm interested.

Interesting! Personally I appreciate heroes that don't have to go wear tights so Swamp Thing and Animal Man work well for me. I might pick Constantine too when it comes out, though I'll probably mourn the loss of Hellblazer first.

Well, since it's not AM or ST, may I ask what your pull list is?. Out of curiosity :)
DaveBaldwin3D Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Pull list? Well I don't really have one but some books I make a habit of buying regularly are: Brian K. Vaughan's "Saga", Nick Spencer's "Morning Glories" and recently his "Bedlam", DC's Batman Incorporated, and from Marvel right now it's just Hawkeye but I'm looking forward to some of the NOW titles.

Awesome, you have good taste dude. Saga is wonderful stuff, weird, but wonderful. I dropped Morning Glories after I felt they had a string of issues with more mysteries than answers, though I'm thinking of getting back into it via trades. And I've been seeing those slick Hawkeye covers via CBR previews. Why can't comic covers be shining examples of excellent graphic design as well? :)
