it's a comics/manga/manhua/sequential images that tell a story thread! Elicoor13!Iris5KShmc No.42058186[View]
hey howdy hey ponychan people, how're you doing? i'm a huge fan of storytelling that requires sequential images, and i realized that apart from /pony/, there's no real place to talk about comics n' shit on ponychan.
so i open up the thread by asking you, dear friends, what comics/comic-y things have you been reading lately?
i'm reading houseki no kuni obviously, and shitfire is the ride INTENSE AS FUCK. other than that, i'm loving this amazing little manga by the guy who did girl on the shore and goodnight punpun called dead dead demons dededede destruction, i started bloom into you finally, and there's a couple more yuri manga lila recc'd to me that i'm reading(one's a kinda horror thing...i forget all of their titles). the yuri shit is all pretty quality, bloom into you being the highlight. like...it's a nursery full of butterflies in my stomach at times. the inio asano manga(the one with all the d's) is...probably my favorite thing inio asano has ever written. it's a story all about coming of age in a world that's constantly saying that it's ending, thanks to the most lowkey alien invasion ever. you get to watch all of these barely teens navigate puberty, difficult feelings and all the usual teen shit but also sometimes alien attacks that are really mundane. it's got a really neato atmosphere, it almost reminds me of british ficiton set durring the blitz, except with vaguely antagonistic b movie aliens(some ships just look like fancy kitchen appliances) instead of v2s.
on the comic side of things, i'm finally reading the incal, east of west and pretty deadly(again). if you haven't read pretty deadly, you fucking need to. yes you, person reading this right now, do yourself a favor and enjoy a visual feast with some solid storytelling.
