Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!
This Saturday’s question: Excluding Marvel and DC, who is your favorite comic publisher?
Say the “Big Two” battled it out to the death and their respective publishers and universes perished in said battle… Who would fill the void left by their absence? Are you an Image fan? If so, do you prefer the Top Cow imprint over the Shadowline division? Or do you prefer other creator owned companies, such as Dark Horse? Or does Dark Horse make you happy on a weekly basis because of their other licensed properties? Where does Boom or Zenescope or IDW land on your comic company hierarchy? Or is there another publisher entirely that you will gladly defend in your local comic shop or in the depths of the internet?
So go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?
I always say I like a lot of other things, and I mean I do, but there is no publisher who has more books I actually get and read on a consistent basis than Zenescope. I like sex and violence in my entertainment, and they deliver with no shame!
BOOM! would have to be my second, but only for their superhero stuff. Problem is their whole gimmick is putting a twist on traditional superhero stories, and if I play along with your premise here and Marvel and DC are gone eventually they would run out of stuff to base it on.
I always had a soft spot for Image Comics, especially at times when I felt like DC and Marvel's stories needed more substance in their ongoing plotlines.
Image wins hands down. Peter Panzerfaust/Walking Dead/Elephant Men/Glory/Americas Got Powers/tons of great titles and BRILLIANT miniseries.
I knew you were going to say that! Still have yet to completely get on board with Zenescope… Mostly because I know I'll like it and have to buy more comics.
Yeah, I haven't read anything from BOOM! that isn't associated with Mark Waid, so I can't really judge. Based on all of his work for that company, I would have to agree, though.
Not to mention the Top Cow stuff, which I have recently fallen in love with.
So no other company love? No die hard Valiant supporters? Any independent comics only guys or gals out there? I personally have to say that Dark Horse has been pretty solid every time I've picked up one of their books.
I feel you man. Image seems to be a good place to escape some of the more ridiculous times or cycles of crossover shenanigans that both of the Big Two go through from time to time.
