I collect the UK Marvel comics 'Collector's Editions' - Avengers United, Astonishing Spiderman, Essential X-men, Mighty World of Marvel, Fantastic Four Adventures, Wolverine and Deadpool, Marvel legends and Ultimate Spiderman and X-men. I'm also collecting the current run of Hulk (red hulk) from the States. I've just started reading 2000AD, which is a superb comic.

I'm currently writing a Future Shock story to see if I can get it included in 2000AD and I'm writing my own horror/comedy comic book series. If it ends up being good then I will do my best to see if I can get it published.

I don't think they ever stopped publishing it - one of the few surviving British weeklies, so I've heard.

Good luck with 2000AD Greenfan. I've always wanted to illustrate for them, I've done loads of stuff but whenever it's come to submitting it I've always got cold feet and not gone through with it. One of these days i'll actually get something sent off.
Hope your Future Shock story gets published, thats a good way to get into it, a lot of 2000AD's regular writers/ artists started off on Future Shocks.

I collect some of those UK collectors editions too Greenfan. I still buy the occasional graphic novel as well and have over 50 of the 'Essential' big black and white phonebooks by Marvel. They collect old comics in 500 page chunks for about a tenner and provide plenty of nostalgic reading!

I'm collecting the Halloween comics at the moment. Only read the four-part Halloween: Nightdance, which I was getting disappointed with, but the fourth and final part made the first three parts more better in hindsight.

TALES FROM THE CRYPT

...and a few originals.

I also collect other precode horror comics.

Smile Day Of The Dead: Desertion

Hey folks,

Barry Keating here, co-writer of Day Of The Dead: Desertion, the comic that's going to be appearing inside the 25th Anniversary Edition of Day Of The Dead on Blu-ray in March. Just wanted to drop in and say hello.

I don't want to give too much away and spoil the surprise, but we're hoping this twisted origin tale starring Bub will blow you away! It's been a blast working on it with all the guys at Arrow, my co-writer Stefan Hutchinson and artist Jeff Zornow, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it when it lands on shelves. I'm so chuffed it's out there now, I've been busting to talk about it!

You'll find me lurking around these boards all the time so feel free to get in touch to talk comics, zombies and gore.

I vaguely remember a graphic novel (series?), Tapping The Vein, which I think were based on Clive Barker's stories from Books Of Blood.

Nowadays, my comic-book reading/ collecting is usually limited to collections or graphic novels of Marvel's revisionist superhero books, like Ultimate Avengers... Dark Avengers is another good series (stuff published in h/c or p/b by Titan). I liked some of the Civil War story-arc, but Secret Invasion epic was better, overall.

Most recently, I enjoyed House Of M and Utopia (both X-Men related).

I don't often read film tie-in comic-adaptations and only a few proper 'horror' comics (alt. world DC titles like Batman: Crimson Mist - where he's a vampire, was good), but I was a big fan of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, and have a couple of John Constantine: Hellblazer titles.

On manga front, I think Ghost In The Shell (I also liked the movie series) is one of best SF styled comics... I enjoyed Frank Miller's Sin City books, but all-time favourite comic-book series is probably Neil Gaiman's The Sandman.

Do you comics-fans prefer the flat four-colour style of comics' artwork, or fully-painted stuff (like Alex Ross' work)?

You can still pick it up, you just won't be able to experience all the cool stuff on the discs. Maybe it's time to upgrade? I use my PS3 for Blu-rays these days, but players aren't that expensive.

And yeah - LOVE Preacher, Garth Ennis is possibly my favourite writer out there and a fellow Irishman. I've picked up a few King adaps over the years but the best ones for me were The Stand and Dark Tower books Marvel did.

And I used to read the Beano too!
