So, do the people here read non-online comics?

I used to love manga, but lately I've been gravitating a lot towards western stuff - Strangers in Paradise, The Planetary, Ultimates, Global Frequency, Transmetropolitan, Fables, Invincible, Bite Club, The Walking Dead are stuff on my "buy as soon as you get money and/or new stuff comes out" -list

What about you?

Haven't read anything offline in a long time now... (well, Marvel Zombies and the Archie/Punisher crossover, they don't count, do they? ;P) ... but when I used to read lots of comics, favourites were Cerebus, Bone, Sandman, Watchmen, Hellblazer, V for Vendetta, and Batman. Yeah, all the classics... Some of these have been made into movies which I hate (ok, except some of the Batman ones), and I sure hope the others will never ever be made into movies ;)

I used to read a lot of manga too, but currently I'm only following Naruto (and not exactly "offline", either).

Ummm... Young Magician and Negi-Maare about it... I've been re-reading Charby the Vampirate. That has about 650 pages in it. It's online though, so I guess that doesn't count...

Nowdays pretty much the only comics I read are from newspapers. So it's stuff like Hagar the Horrible, Dilbert, Donald Duck and such. Plus some domestic ones like "Eevertti" and "Virtanen".

Ok, this might get heretical:

My favourite comics beside shd are QC, Sinfest and Dilbert. Also reading some others...

Well, if we start talking of other online comics - Sluggy Freelance, Penny Arcade, Alien Loves Predator, Girl Genius, Perry Bible Fellowship and some others rank quite high :)

Sluggy Freelance I read too. In addition to that there's the noob, last day's of foxhound and doobl. Although doobl isn't going to update anymore I guess.

SMBC-comics, The noob is a good one, Lozerz, This comic sucks (It's not making any new ones, but still a good read), and Beaver and Steve.

The only non-online comics I read would be those in newspapers, and I don't get a paper. Makes it a little more difficult, ne?

As far as other comics go, I've never been interested. I'd rather have a book, in most cases.

I started really recently (like today) to read Questionable content too. It seems to be quite good.

Online, I read Dr. McNinja, QC, Sam and Fuzzy, Sluggy, Megatokyo, Bob and George, Vampirates, and a bunch of others I'm too lazy to recall at the moment.

As far as manga, I get Shonen Jump, so I like most of those, and in addition I read Black Cat, D. Gray-man, Crono Crusade, FMA, and D.N.Angel.

And for regular American comics, I read old stuff, and only what my dad already has. Some Superman, Batman, Teen Titans, Archie, Conan the Barbarian, Xmen, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spiderman, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, Avengers, and Metal Men. See, my dad was a comic book collector. He got rid of the majority of his collection, but we still have almost all his Conan the Barbarian and Xmen. Most of what I've read is off this spiffy CD that he has that's got the first couple of comic books for some of those, and then some of them he has in a format that he can't really put in bags. The ones we have in bags I'm not allowed to touch unless we're rebagging them.

Dr.McNinja. That's a good one. Vampirates is also pretty good. Edge the Devil Hunter is ok. Umm... Manga? Bleach. Ummm... That's it at the moment.

I read Elfquest. It's a story about elves (unpredictable, eh? :P). I really like the fact that they aren't LotR-elves, but elfquest-elves. They are little (child-height)(well, except for the high ones and the gliders :P), have four fingers, and really pointy ears (not like the LotR-elves, they only have tiny-pointy ears). And a lot of them ride on wolves, which means that there are a LOT of wolf-drawings in it :)

For if anyone wants to know what the elves look like, here's a picture of Cutter, the chief of the Wolfriders (the Wolfriders is the tribe where the story mainly is about, and Cutter is the main character in the whole story)

Offcourse there are a lot of different tribes.
You have the wolfriders, the sunvillagers, the gliders, the high ones(those were the first elves, and all of them are dead (except for one)), the go-backs and the wavedansers. And they all look very different :P

And I could most likely tell a LOT about the comic, and the tribes and so on, but I think that would become a bit spammy. :D
