After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I am a pretty big comics fan. Mostly independent stuff. Some of my old favorites are: Preacher, Sandman, Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer. And zombies. I heart zombie stories. :headbang:

I can't do much superhero stuff. I just can't. The closest thing I can take is Batman. I think because he's just a normal guy for the most part. I don't like the whole 'faster than a speeding bullet/web-slinging/genetic mutant' thing.

Anyways, I've been told by more than a few people that I should get into some Manga stuff. Someone once recommended that I read Sanctuary. I went to finally check that out, and was told that it's out of print. Crappers. So the guy at the comic shop said that I might like Crying Freeman and if I didn't, I could return it and throw it in his face.

Anyone else enjoy that one? I thought that the first book was pretty good. Are the others good as well?

Any other recommendations for more gangster/mafia style Manga?
Not looking for "super-strength/hero" styles.
Thanks much.
