    OK, I finished the fantasy comic I mentioned above. I picked this up during a Comixology sale a while ago, and was hesitant to read it as the premise didn't seem that great. But, as this guy is one of my favorite comic book writers, I had to read it. The comic is Joe the Barbarian by Grant Morrison, and it was incredible. Everything about it was great. I think this does edge out Coda for best fantasy comic. This might even be Morrison's best work. Right up there with Doom Patrol.


    Just Finished.
    It was solid reco T77, thx.
    It IS good. It doesnt displace CODA for me. Or SEVEN FOR ETERNITY or BIRTHRIGHT for that matter.
    The art is lovely and loaded with Easter Eggs, the pace is good. My complaint is that it relies on a trope I genuinely dislike... not a spoiler, it's in every blurb... that the whole thing is a hallucination in the protagonist's head as he gets close to death... and with one exception, the story never prompts me to even consider that maybe this is 'real'. The one exception was exceptionally well done, but it almost weakens the rest of the book in how it is just so much shinier. Morrison can be over the top, I was wishing he did so a little more here.

    Yep. Apparently a near completely new cast, same setting, same timeline.
    Blurb sounds solid.

    And I still feel that background sense (without reason or target) of needing to get the fuck out of here.


    There is a support group for this. It's called 'everybody'.

    We used to meet at a bar but the pandemic fucked that up so now we mostly complain on the internet and watch cartoons.:)

    ..Victoria Schwab's THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE.

    ..cannot promise any of you will love or even like this... i went in on the strength of the author's DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC trilo that I very enjoyed and her sheer level of social media joy at having written it. It is not like Patrick Lee's series that swept the forum with its absurd fun, it's not Dresden or even Castor, its sure as fnck a far far throw from Malazan, but... but but but... it's really worth a look or a listen.

    So far.
    But it's looking good.

    Abyss - I think I'd enjoy that. I'll keep an eye out on the Kindle version.


    That moment when you think 'the author wouldn't... oh crap they absolutely would....' ..won't spoil but if i had this in text i would be reading it rtf now. I actually hope i get stuck in traffic later.

    Pessimist me, expecting protests, violence, whomever wins.
    A crushing Biden victory might minimize it, but even then the kkk/supremacists and their ilk will be in the streets waving their penis replacements and screaming about the injustice of it all.
    Trump squeeks by and the left will go bugnuts over a stolen election. Trump landslide, same thing only moreso.

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though: https://reedsy.com/discovery/blog/best-fantasy-series

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D
