Protoclown Excellent! Glad to hear that! Thanks for letting us know.

scribo As it turns out, Proto, the hardback edition does include those afterwards and soundtrack listings you were talking about, so it's definitely on par with the individual issues as far as that goes.

They didn't. Local isn't anything like shoujo manga. This story is in no way aimed at young girls, nor is it particularly romantic. It appeals to anyone who likes a good character study.

I'm familiar with it. I've not read it, though a friend has loaned it to me. Given the fact that it was loaned to me over two years ago, however, you can imagine that it's probably not high on my stack of priorities, but I will read it eventually.

Fathom Zero And it blows goats. I have proof.

JJ_Maniac Kitsunexus, are you talking about JTHM?

Protoclown What in the name of fuck are you yammering about?
Jun 23rd, 2008 05:42 PM
Kitsunexus An American bishoujo...why!? o_0

Fathom Zero I deny that motion.
Jun 21st, 2008 04:29 PM
xscoot I second that motion.
Jun 20th, 2008 10:36 PM
JJ_Maniac proto, could you PLEASE review a JTHM if you ever get your hands on one? please?
Jun 20th, 2008 02:31 PM
Protoclown I don't read manga, thus it is very hard for me to review it.
Jun 19th, 2008 10:36 PM
executioneer it's probably because manga sucks
Jun 19th, 2008 08:56 PM
xscoot Hey, I've just been wondering, how come none of the comics you've reviewed have been manga comics? You're missing out on a large demographic.

Yes, DMZ is a fantastic book as well, and I'll probably get around to reviewing it at some point.
Jun 18th, 2008 03:53 PM
antman82 Seems like a book in the vein of "Ghost World," (Which, by the way, everyone should read if they enjoy books like this.) so I'll probably enjoy it. I'll be checking it out!

Julio This sounds cool Proto, I think I might get the hardback collection if the individual issues are no lo nger available.

Dungeonbrownies mmm, another artsy fartsy piece thats not so much your average graphic novel, but a novel, made of graphics. superb sounding. i hope i run across this one.
Jun 17th, 2008 03:37 PM
wobzire Damn... It would be hard to find the individual issues but that song seletion feature sounds maybe worth it. I always thought it would be cool for a comic to have some "suggested listening" listed in it to set the mood.
Jun 17th, 2008 02:41 PM
Protoclown Hey, I'm glad to hear that a lot of the books that mean a lot to me are striking a chord with others. Be aware though that Local is not yet available in collected format. If you get it now, you'll have to get the individual issues, but the hardcover collection is coming out in September.
Jun 17th, 2008 11:25 AM
wobzire I know I sound stupid (I am for those of you keeping score at home) but I cannot tell you how much some of the comics you have recommended have enriched my life. I will be grabbing this on my way home from work.
