I agree MM, I don't buy much new stuff at all. Luckily I have a massive back catalogue of awesomeness to keep me going.

Side note - Me and Tommy are currently playing Arkham City......BEST GAME EVER!!

It's basically more of the same, but about 10 times bigger, and a lot prettier.

Got a system running, leaves me some time to write a proper post.
This being an international forum, I will not care (also because I do not necessarily know) whether the comic, BD or manga has yet been translated in English, French, German, Japanese, Swahili or any other language... sorry!

Belgian/French style: (skipping the classics like Tintin, Largo Winch, Schuitten etc.)
- Magasin Général: Québec, Canada in the 1920s, small village, very nice drawings and well made scenario.
- Bunker: Imaginary Sovietic kind of country in the Himalaya with old gods. Scary story.
- Sanctuaires: Same scary idea as in bunker, with an old god trapped for centuries and finally released.
- De cape et de crocs: imaginary world, theatrically described, inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac.
- All things from Marc-Antoine Matthieu, just pure nonsense, black and white, but damn it is good.
- Sentinelles: WWI at its best/worst, this one gives back to war what belongs to war: horror, fear, guts etc. Well made.

American:
- Alan Moore: V for vendetta, From Hell etc.
- The walking dead.
- Maus, Art Spiegelman... no need to introduce
- Will Eisner, disney drawings because he worked there, but some of his stuff his really good.

German:
- Gift, trial and decapitation of the last lady poisoner in Bremen in the 19th century. Really good!
- Haarmann, homosexual cannibal serial killer from Hanover in short in meat post WWI Germany. Give you the creeps!
- Die Sache mit Sorge, German spy in China and Japan for Stalin.

And of course: Japanese mangas:
- Nausicaa, Miyazaki Hayao (and all his animés from the famous studio Ghibli!!!!!).
- Taniguchi Jirô: Sommet des dieux and alll his stuff.

I forgot many I think but this post will still be there later on. Please give some advices for good stuff!  :D

Chew is great fun. I like Invincible and Powers as well. Sam & Twitch, Locke & Key and Fell are all good. Might be going to San Diego ComicCon this year as well.
