Ha. Anything that uses the term "old hat" wins instant awesome points.
Trigun / Trigun Maximum
- Love it. Recently started re-reading it to hold me over 'til Trigun Maximum vol. 9 is released (which semms to just keep getting pushed back)
- Thought it'd be a sack o' crap, but I fell for it. Violence and vampires, always fun.
- Picked it up upon recommendation. Deliciously violent.
Sword of the Dark Ones
- Only 3 volumes long, but it was fun, and I liked the art. Pick it up.
Others Worth Mentioning:
- Loved the show, didn't like the manga so much. I read 'em both anyway.
Neon Genesis Evangelion
- Picked up the first few after I saw the anime for the first time, grew tired of EVA shortly after. I may get back into it eventually.
- Recommended (strangely enough) by the same person who recommended I get into Berserk. The whole kiddie packaging this series is wrapped in often puts me off, but it does have some redeeming qualities here and there.
- Took a gamble and picked up the first issue (couldn't check it out in the store as it was one of those shrink-wrapped ones) Not much about it appealed to me. Have yet to finish volume 1 and probably won't get the others.
The two things I dislike most about American comics are:
1. They only stay in print for one month per issue
2. The artisits and writers change constantly making for obnoxious inconsistencies
Both of these things are thankfully absent from manga, which why I don't mind collecting it.
I also highly recommend the Trigun manga. Far superior to the anime. Edited by KamikazeChicken on June 1, 2006 at 15:05:40.
