Hmm, a somewhat unpopular reaction to Slender Man.

Okay! Next up, get your Chucks on and wrap a flannel shirt round your waist cuz we're going back to the 90s:

Did I? I'm pretty sure I haven't.

Just did a brief search, and I couldn't find anything.

Never could get into the Maxx. Didn't read the comics, but I did use to watch the animated shorts on " Liquid TV" on MTV back in the day, but couldn't understand what was going on.

Don't know much about The Maxx. Doesn't look terribly appealing.

I watched that series in pretty much a single night back in college. Cant says I entirely understood what was going on either... It still managed to be awesome though.

I'm pretty interested in Scud.

I've seen him around for a while, but listen to the Wiki description:

Scud: The Disposable Assassin (published from 1994 to 1998, and 2008) is a humorous, hyperkinetic science fiction comic by Rob Schrab about a world in which one can buy robot assassins out of vending machines, the most popular of which are intelligent robots that kill a specified target and then self-destruct.
The protagonist of the series is Scud, an average Heart Breaker Series 1373 model assassin. On his first mission, he is sent to kill Jeff, a rampaging female mutant with mousetraps for hands, an electrical plug for a head, and a squid for a belt.

During his first mission, Scud glances in a mirror and sees the warning label on his back explaining how he will self-destruct upon completion of his mission. Realizing that he doesn't want to die, Scud mortally wounds Jeff, shooting off her arms and legs, then takes her to a hospital placing her on life support ensuring their mutual survival.[1]
Scud: TDA's main plot follows Scud's career as a freelance mercenary and assassin, working to pay off Jeff's medical bills.


With a synopsis like that, it's gotta be worth a look right?

Scud was pretty cool. Haven't read anything with him in it since the 90's though.

Mmmkay, so it's been a while since I've done a "theme" here, I think it might be interesting to temporarily expand this thread's parameters a bit and focus on non-Marvel/DC books, as opposed to just characters.

Tonight's:

Great story. One of those comics that elevates the genre.

Yeah, I've heard it's incredible.
I've sorta deliberately put off checking it out, just so I know I'll have something that'll be good to read when I run out of "classic, genre-defining" masterpieces.

It's my "In case of emergency, break glass" book, if that makes sense.

That was good. I liked it.

One messed up STD.

Also, that chick with the tail was hot.

Black Hole isn't a character so much as it's a story.

Like Maus.

It's about a nasty STD that's going through a small midwestern town in the 70's that kinda mutates whoever gets it. It's different for everybody. Some can pass, most are so f**ked up they end up livin' in the woods. Basically like the X-Men minus the creepy bald guy, the melodrama, the super fights, and snazzy costumes.

I only saw the movie Persepolis. Pretty good.

Same with From Hell. I liked it. I heard that if I had read the book I probably wouldn't.....I've chosen to go with willful ignorance on this one.
