>What is this thread?
Every Wins'day at Win-O'-Clock we gather here and post links to the latest scans and rips of comic books.
Most links we uploaded ourselves, others we are sharing from elsewhere.
Some comics we've even purchased ourselves (but most we didn't).
If you'd like to help out, just ask and we would be delighted to tell you how.
Otherwise, be patient, be polite, and understand the simple concept behind these words: Not posted means not available yet.
>Where can I find old Win-O'-Threads?
(Note: This finds the OP for old threads. If you want to search for comics in the archive, clear the subject field!)
>Where can I find downloads for other comics?
Warez forums/blogs (like AvaxHome), DDL-indexing search engines (like FileDiva), torrent trackers (like KickAss) and other P2P networks (like DC++).

If all else fails, just >buy it.

On the various publishers' webstores, and at your local comics shop.

American Indie Comics: Let's Talk About Quality
64 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Since comics are all the shit now there have been a lot of new readers lately. Buzzwords aside, all of us know who they are, but it's not about the readers specifically, nor about the big two. I'm talking about indie titles and publishers, by also excluding lincenced titles. It's just about creator owned.
As someone who grew up reading comics for the past 15-20 years, the current state of "popular" OC's is baffling. What I'm talking about is the state of Image and Dark Horse comics, in particular. Back in the 90s Image had a strong start but quickly fell on it's face, and Dark Horse started doing the Legend imprint with some kickass titles. But ever since Kirkman's Walking Dead, Image finaly did their shit the wey they shold've done a long time ago. And, funny enough, those titles became more popular than the Dark Horse ones and indie comics never did better in US then they're doing right now.
My question is: what made them popular? Are all those Image titles flavor of the week/NYtimes bestseller type of books, or are they just that good? Are they popular because of the creators who gained following after their work for the bog two, or are the writing and art that appealing on their own?
I know the thread comes off as vague and shit, but it came to me after watching some haul vlogs on Youtube and seeing all those people talking about stuff like Saga, Sex Criminals, Low, etc. but not a single Hellboy, Usagi, Goon. What do you make of it? Share your houghts and opinions. And do note that my intentions aren't about some console wars type bullshit, but genuine talk about the quality of the books and how they bacame popular.

>On how All-New, All-Different stands apart from previous relaunches:
>I think it's diversity. Diversity of everything. Diversity of styles, diversity of books, diversity of artistic styles, diversity of characters, diversity of talent. And the fact that all of these things gain momentum. We live in a world right now where Thor is a woman, Captain America is African-American and where the strongest character in the Marvel Universe is the 19 year-old Korean-American, Amadeus Cho, who's become the new Incredible Hulk. That's not to mention Kamala Khan is the new Ms. Marvel, a Pakistani-American girl; the fact that we have a "Black Panther" series now that will be written by Ta-Nehisi Coates that's bound to be epic. We have a wide range of offerings right now from, you know, the upper echelon titles -- let's just say the more commercial books -- to more offbeat stuff like a book I'm really rooting for, "Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur." We live in an era where at this point we've lost count of how many female-led titles we're doing, and the only time we count them is when people ask. ... And the ethnic representation. I've been asked a lot of questions by people, "Where's the hispanic books?" They're coming. It's, again, patience. Wait, we've got a plan. We said when we launched the hip-hop covers, this is the head of the spear. These covers are a reflection of the diversity of our line, our output moving forward, and we hope that we continue to keep this momentum moving forward as well.
