The Weekend Comics Chat Open Thread - the Indiana Jones and the Price of Gas Edition!


Hey! What did you read this week? Anything?

I read THIS:


Peter Bagge's HATE ANNUAL #6, published by Fantagraphics. I really love this comic, but it comes out waaaay too little... once a year is not even close to being enough. That being said, I only enjoy about half of the comic anyway... Bagge's Buddy Bradley stuff is hilarious and always a fun read (see Stinky on the cover there), but the "The Adventures of Bat Boy" backups just don't do anything for me. I read them and think "Meh." Literally.

Meh.

So what's good on your shelf?

Hey, I just read the new ATOM and OMAC... I liked the ATOM pretty much (even though John Byrne's art bores me lately), it was an interesting start. OMAC was pretty OK, nothing great for this reader...
