    I'd recommend MY BOOK.... DREAM REAVERS. A bunch of teenagers with special mental abilities teaming up to stop a army of nightmare monsters from taking over the minds of humanity.

    I'm looking for some good hardcover omnibuses or thick trades. Preferably something that's a whole collection - a series that's over or have meaty books. Any ideas? So far - though I know most of them don't fall in the category I mention - I have The Dark Tower Omnibus, The Walking Dead Compendium vol. 1, 100 Bullets vol. 1., Batman and Son vs. The Black Glove(coming in July, Superman: Earth One.

    Also, can somebody help me with the order of the recent Captain America Omnibuses? It seems that they have labeled them weird.

    Also, can I get Ultimate Comics Avengers without getting any of the Ultimates omnibuses without getting lost?

    And I'm also digging the new GI Joes but I don't know what to get, they're order is weird too, what with all the GI Joe: Cobra, GI Joe Cobra: Civil War and well, I forgot all the other series

    Has anyone ever read The Stuff of Legend done by th3rdworld Studios? I saw Vol. 3 at my LCS and looked interesting and love the art. The guy said he could order Vol. 1 for me but just wondering if anyone else has anything to say about it. He hasn't read the series.

    I really enjoy the current run on "30 Days of Night." I usually pick up anything written by Steve Niles anyway.
    Also I'm really happy that DC is restarting "Legends of the Dark Knight" and I liked the Ben Templesmith one that came out not long ago.

    ^ I don't have specific titles (I mostly read them in French and the titles probably differ) but you can't really go wrong with anything drawn by John Buscema. I love Frazetta's Conan, but to me Buscema is the ultimate Conan artist.

    I was handed "The Strange Talent of Luther Strode" under Image Comics on FCBD. Got done reading it last weekend. Not a bad read, fairly quick. Only one volume so far as far as I know. The artwork is nice, has a thin style that reminds me of Nuno Plati. It's a pretty straightforward read and nothing too special about it bit there are some brutal twistsi wasn't expecting. It's also very gory.

    Lemme know if you guys read it! Or have read it.

    Has anybody read the first couple issues of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys? After Gerard Way's awesome Umbrella Academy, I'm thinking about giving it a shot.

    Haven't read the second issue, yet, but that first one was very solid.
