Does anybody know if it's a homage to a specific Sci-fi show or just generic?
Sheldon says Raj has difficulties "parsing American comics idioms like "BAMF" and "SNIKT"."
I'm very proud (or maybe not) to say that even though it's been years, I still know exactly what those mean: "bamf" is the sound of Nightcrawler teleporting, and "snikt" is the sound of Wolverine's claws extending. Ah, the good old days when you could follow the story of a Marvel comic without having to buy thirty titles to make sense of it. And that's only the X-Men titles!
I used to read lotsa comics all the time, but the past few years, hardly any. Right now I'm trying the Power Girl mini-series, it's not bad, pretty humorous. Can anybody recommend any series, preferably available digitally? Like I hinted, I prefer something where I don't have to read several titles for months to get an idea of what's going on. I guess that pretty much means mini-series, unless ongoing comics have changed a lot in the past couple years.
Ooh, I am open to off-beat, independent comics too, unless they are they are the kind which are autobiographical despite the author's life consisting basically of masturbating and arguing with his parents. I never took to American Splendor, but I liked a lot of Love And Rockets.
