None at the moment but looking at adding the Moore's classic Swamp Thing to my collection. I'm also going to get Miller's Sin City.

Both excellent choices Gollum, Swamp Thng sees Moore really come nto his own, while Sin City shows a master story teller at the top of hs game.

Dont forget A Hard Goodbye the first Sin City story. Despite you have seen the movie, that story is a masterpiece and Frank Miller at his best.

Best black and white art i have seen by a westerner. Great combo of art,story. That story made a comics reader and a huge fan of Frank Miller when he was the best writer/artist.

Superman/Batman #55. COOL! Batman now has Superman's powers and they're driving him to the rim of lunacy, almost killing Nightwing. Recommended.

I'm giving the monthly Hellblazer a try again after leaving it for a few years. the arrival of the new writer, Peter Milligan, has left me excited enough; he's a terrific writer and issue #251 didn't disappoint but it's not the tense experience I expected from this legendary horror comic.

Read Diggle's Joyride arc/collection. Andy Diggle got Constantine unlike Mina,Mike Carey,Azzarello etc

His run was short but it was good.

Paradise Kiss - the most adorably but not sacchariney romantic story ever
slowly slogging my way through Sandman
hoping the Foglio's come out with another bound volume of Girl Genius soon, because reading it online is a pain
and i pick up issues of The Escapist whenever I see them.

Yeah, I've read good stuff about his run. What's the story about, anyway?

I've just finished the second trade of The Death of Captain America, the second X-Factor trade by Peter David, and the third Iron Fist trade, the book of Iron Fist. All really good stuff. Currently reading the 7th Hellboy trade.

Re: What comic books/graphic novels are you reading at the moment?

Superman/Batman 56 - conclusion to the "Super-Bat" storline.

Dark Tower: Treachery 6 of 6. Good conclusion to another fascinating King comic adaptation.

Action Comics 875 - beginning of "World Without Superman" arc, introducing Nightwing and Flamebird. Have vague recollection they may be characters who appeared back in the Silver Age. Don't quote me. Anyway starts off nicely. Apparently Supes will be gone for a while in some "New Krypton" storyline taking place elsewhere. Not going to follow it. I'll catch him when he gets back and just enjoy what's going on in the titles I collect. Greg Rucka and Eddy Barrows creative team.

Batman Confidential 27 - Riddler helping Bats solve "The Riddle of the Sphinx", part two. Very good story by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir with eyepopping art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez.
