Comics I've Read Vol.1

I always find it interesting to see what other people have been reading or watching or listening to and I have an odd fondness for keeping record of the things I have read etc so I figured I would start putting some of it on here.

A little background info. I adore Tank Girl. As simple as that. I started on comics a lot later than I'd like to admit but I'm not one to dwell on such things. As far as I recall Tank Girl was my first proper venture into the comic book world, maybe at the end of college/start of uni, with the collections of the Martin/Hewlett era. I have the 3 collections in the image and love them.

I now also love Rufus Dayglo, the current artist for Tank Girl but these days I'm restricted to what the library has on offer due to being poor and such like.

I bobbed around a bit dipping in and out of things not really knowing where to look for other comics I might enjoy because the world of comics is so vast but I think in using the library I've overcome my fear of ending up with something rubbish because I don't have to pay for it and can just give it back, which is brilliant.

Anyway, here are the 2 I have read most recently so as to not make this too long.

I don't like Superman. Never have. He's far too pompous.
But the basic idea of this story is 'what if Superman had been raised in Russia rather than America?' and it's genius.

I wasn't sure about reading this and after reading it am still not sure of my opinion on it. I think I liked it as a comic but if it had been a book I probably wouldn't have read it all.
I think I'm going to try another of Posy Simmonds' out of curiosity.

If you've read anything good recently or know of something I shouldn't miss then please let me know.

I'm going to go get back to the drawings for my next zine.



  1. I'm making my way through all the Walking dead comics at the moment and I love it !

  2. My boyfriend's working his way through Walking Dead aswell and keeps telling me how good they are, I'll have to finally get round to looking at them too.
