Anyone got a suggestion for compilations or series to get on the Kindle?
Realistically limiting myself to comics that would originally been done in monochrome (have downloaded Vol. 1 of Judge Dredd's case files), but looking for other options that aren't going to be impacted by reading them on the relatively small screen without colour.

Sin City, yes there are flashes of colour but mostly black & white and a great series of graphic novels

Would those flashes mostly be red? :D

It's available on the kindle, so I might give that a go. Thanks!

I bought it because of the writer and enjoyed it. But never bought another one after the first.

Best comic I've read recently is Polina by Bastien Vives.

Its silly season so this deserves a bump. Anyone go to SD Comic Con this year? anyone going to the Dublin Comic Con weekend after next? Was it any use last year?

Frank Miller to pen 3rd and final part of the dark knight series..... wohoo.... I think?
What's he going to do though, have Batman carry out a series of investigations in his nursing home?
The title is "The Master Race" and the cover heaps more pain on poor supes!

I'll be disapointed if Rogue Trooper and Strontium Dog aren't included.

Strontium Dog wasn't originally a 2000AD character though


edit: If that Finn is the eco-warrior from 3WW then neither is he!

Finn was in crisis and got his own strip in 2000ad. [According to wiki]

Wasn't crisis a 2000ad product?

Reading comics and building forts.... never too old for either.

It was sort of, it was an attempt by Fleetway to move into the mature comics market that was proving successful for a lot of indie publishers - who were running stuff by a lot of people who also worked for Fleetway but unlike 2000AD et al, the indies offered creator-owned deals to writers and artists. Crisis was set up to allow the guys who worked for Fleetway and had great characters and stories squirrelled away because they'd lose ownership if they brought them to Fleetway retain ownership of them and stay under the Fleetway shingle. Garth Ennis' first published comic book work was in Crisis, Troubled Souls, For a few Troubles more and True Faith.
