Disney has already easily recouped that four billion, just in movie profits alone.  It was a great buy for them, since they'll be printing money off it for decades, especially when you factor in all the ancillary income. Hell, the theme park income alone probably makes it worthwhile.

Here are some Marvel covers from comics i still have at home from mid to late 90's, then i have a lot more around early 00's, i remember being a fan of the series from "Cliffhanger" which were composed of Steampunk, Crimson, Battle Chasers and Danger Girls, it was a bunch of badass books from talented illustrator like Joe Mad and Scott Campbell, i was like 13-15 years old back then  :).

Not surprised this is a thread on here but kind of surprised I didn't think to search for it.

Anyone read Image comics? I particularly love Stray Bullets, The Humans, and Saga to name a few!

When I was going through my divorce 5-6 years ago I spent a lot of time at the comic book store in town buried in horror/sci fi trying to ignore the inevitable. The above titles really helped out and I heard Saga is starting back up again.

I also read up to #178 in TWD...not sure if anyone is interested in that book but the comics were so much better than the show.

Image makes my favorite stuff.  Have you red "Wytches"?  Saga is great, Wicked and Divine is good too.  Revival is also fun.

The Humans is sweet. I actually went to a BBQ at Tom Neely's house while I was in LA a few years ago before I knew about his work. Awesome dude. He bought one of my paintings last month from a gallery and it made me feel incredibly honored!

I just read the first four Red Room issues and loved them. Ed Piskor is twisted and I'm a huge sucker for anything cyberpunk.

Heck yeah dude I'll check out Wytches...though it does sound familiar. Wicked and Divine had the coolest cover art. I have the first several issues in a comic box tucked away in my studio. Thanks for reminding me.

I've been on an Alan Moore streak recently. First Neonomicon (excellent), then Providence (starts excellent then ends up disappointing), Promethea (very good), and V for Vendetta (excellent but I actually like the movie better). None of those is as good a Watchmen IMHO.
