As kid
kinda as 'fast food'

and I collected and read each volume like 2 dozen times

In my late teens / early 20s I did not read any comics / graphic novels, until a colleague (totally into Tin Tin) sort of re-awakened my interest.
Atm I like things like

off and on i've had phases of looking at comics & graphic novels. dudley d. watkins, jean giraud, charles burns, jamie hernandez, alan moore, neil gaiman.. others acannie remember their names. nowadays i still keep an eye on that world but not much because it seems that a lot of the writers and artists, particulary of "graphic novels" seem to take themselves awfully seriously and that's tedious.

Neil Gaiman, yes yes

eta: as far as the funnies, Far Side and the various incarnations of Bloom County are paramount.

I also enjoy Marmaduke.

Just kidding.

i never read graphic novels/comic books until i was in college. and then only sparingly.

for a long time these were the only ones i owned:

then i married a reformed comic collector who made me read the following:

he's mad because i haven't read the following, even though he bought the big expensive hardcover leather bound editions:

Bman 02-20-2008 12:53 AM

Far side, Dilbert, Garfield and most recently:

T.I.P. 02-20-2008 01:33 AM

Xmen, Calvin & Hobbes, Asterix

when i was really little it was "Pif Gadget Magazine". We used to get a little gadget in every issue, which was pretty awesome.

Tunesmith 02-20-2008 02:09 AM

I've always suspected you guys were the Sandman type. :D

When I was a kid, it was

and for the past few months, I've been on a graphic novel binge:

Sorry for the ginormous pics... :o

The radio has just announced that the entire world is going to explode in thirty seconds.

How are you spending the next thirty seconds ?

auntie aubrey 02-21-2008 12:55 AM

holding my husband in my arms.

awwww barf.

lukkucairi 02-21-2008 12:57 AM

eating a piece of cheddar cheese and sipping on a strong gin and tonic

which is, coincidentally, what I'm going to be doing in the next 30 seconds as well :)

trisherina 02-21-2008 02:30 AM

In this scenario, am I within reach of anything that could serve as a quick anaesthetic? Just wondering.

Frieda 02-21-2008 04:44 AM

i still have to pee, explosion or not

panicking and regretting

Jack Flanders 02-21-2008 05:50 AM

turning off the radio

Stephi_B 02-21-2008 07:41 AM

I'd go out on the balcony (or some similar place - will they have public viewing zones when the world ends?) to watch the show. A gin tonic (Lukku, mix two please!) and/or a passionate kiss (volunteers?!) to go with it (in twofold meaning) wouldn't be bad either.

Earthling 02-21-2008 10:34 AM

I'd be watching the second hand on my clock, just to make sure it's really 30 seconds.:cool:

I'm spending it trying to figure out why I'm listening to the radio.

Angry Kid Hoyt 02-21-2008 12:46 PM

The radio announcer posts a retraction and states thet the world will in fact be ending in 24 hours.
Now, what will you be spending your last 24 hours doing?

lukkucairi 02-21-2008 12:51 PM

drinking LSD-laced kool aid with all the patchouli-reeking neo-hippies in sugar house park

knitting a paper bag to go over my head

hanging out with my husband and the dog on the couch, watching movies and drinking wine

...things along those lines

zero 02-21-2008 01:06 PM

^nothing like keeping busy during one's final thirty seconds

nono, it's final 24 hours now...

I think that's plenty of time to kill getting stoned with hippies, don't you? maybe a little *too* much time, actually...

zero 02-21-2008 03:47 PM

i know nothing of such matters

Coffee 02-21-2008 03:59 PM

Switching to a Non-Christian Fundamentalist radio station and relaxing. :rolleyes:

12"razormix 02-21-2008 04:06 PM

how can i say what i would be doing after the announcement if i don't know what i was doing before?

zero 02-21-2008 04:33 PM

how do you know that you don't know what you were doing?

or are you asking this based on the the assumption that at any given point in time you don't know what you're doing?

12"razormix 02-21-2008 04:55 PM

since this is not happening now, it must be some fictitious event in the future. i have no knowledge of such events, therefore can't answer the question ( but i can tell you with certainty that i would be doing the same thing for the 30 seconds following the announcement as i was doing before )

( unless i had already finished ) ( ..whatever i was doing )

( then i would be doing something else )
