marvel comics are great.  captain America is really my favouirite. read winter soldier before seeing the film. book is much better in my opinion. great pictures storyline and interesting to make captain America come across as a bit less wooden which he can come across that way a bit in the movies. still love the movies though and appreciate them more after reading the graphic novels. should read more of them what do people recommend

I don't like comic books. There are some Marvel movies and TV shows that I like but not all of them. Those that I like are the movies about all of the characters of "The Avengers" initiative. I'm still waiting for the story of agent Romanoff to be released. I also like "Agents of SHIELD" until season 5. After season 5 it looks more like "sucking from the fingers" to me.

Any other Marvel fans in here?

I got my first Marvel comicbook for Xmas (The Death of Wolverine) and I have been hooked ever since. I am hyped for the return series of Logan this year and Project H sounds interesting so I reckon I'll start getting that 

I recently got a marvel unlimited app for the year. Unlimited marvel. It's surprisingly good and gives me a chance to explore the lesser known characters.  So I've read alot of captain America ed brubaker stuff to begin with which was great, recently read  alot of the daredevil stuff from Frank millers stuff to more modern stuff, punisher is hard to beat especially Rosenberg's run in 2018.

The movies are good way to break into marvel universe imo but the comics trump them as the stories seem more varied, of course there's alot that's not that great and the art work is at times truly amazing which you won't get from movies tbh imo especially stylised art work. 

the death of wolverine sounds interesting though. Might have to check it out.

also was netflix daredevil and punisher any good.

Iron fist by brubaker was so good. Just read that on marvel unlimited. Would recommend that to anyone wanting interesting story and great drawings

Valso. What is it you don't like about comic books. For me a good comic is much more interesting than watching a movie. Movies tend to be alot slower in my experience

Drawings. Static images, most often black-white. For starters. It's like asking me why I like a 1969 Dodge Charger but not a Trabant.

There are some amazing comic book images. Such variety too. Wouldn't just dismiss all because you dont like black n white comics. I recommend the winter soldier graphic novel of captain America . Surely you couldn't not like this classic. The images are not moving but there so good.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
