I'm very sorry for abandoning BDcomics.
Monday, February 20, 2006
Albright! We're now officially moved!
We're now BDcomics.net!
Goodbye to trusty old Blogger. It's time for Wordpress to take over business.
Check out the new look! It's not going to be permanent, I think; but who knows. We're working on a better and nicer design. Until that comes out, we'll use this.
So change your bookmarks to BDcomics.net, visitors. The current blog on blogger will continue to be here, but it'll not have new content anymore.
More comics and an even better site is on the way!

Warren Ellis' Ocean
Wildstorm (DC) Comics
Warren Ellis' Ocean
Superstar Writer Warren Ellis returns for a 6-part mini-series that spans the universe!! Beneath the ice of one of Jupiter's moons lies an ocean. The only ocean not on Earth. Here lies the secret of life, as well as it's extinction.Warren Ellis returns with a universe-spanning science-fiction tale! The 6-issue miniseries OCEAN is a fast-paced science-fiction story with brains, attitude and style told by fan-favorite writer Warren Ellis (ORBITER, TRANSMETROPOLITAN) with stunning art by Chris Sprouse & Karl Story (TOM STRONG) and covers by Michael Golden (STORMWATCH: TEAM ACHILLES)!
Beyond the inner planets lie the gaseous giants, Jupiter being the largest of all. Orbiting Jupiter is the moon Europa, a hard orb floating in frigid space. Lying beneath Europa's half mile thick mantle of shear ice is an ocean, the only one in the solar system that’s not on Earth. And within those cold waters could rest the key to life on Earth — and quite possibly its extinction!

Vicente del Pedregal emailed with links to Transmetropolitan. (Thanks!)
Transmetropolitan is a postcyberpunk comic book series written by Warren Ellis with art by Darick Robertson and published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics (originally by Helix). It chronicles the battles of Spider Jerusalem, infamous renegade gonzo journalist of the future. Jerusalem dedicates himself to fighting the corruption and abuse of power of two successive United States presidents; he and his assistants strive to keep their world from turning more dystopian than it already is.
The monthly series began in 1997, and reached its planned conclusion after five years in publication with the 60th issue. It is reprinted in ten trade paperback volumes. Two collections of short vignettes illustrated by different artists have also been published, I Hate It Here and Filth of the City.

Batman: The Chalice graphic novel
Writer: Chuck Dixon
Artist: John Van Fleet
When a mysterious denizen of Gotham City gives Thomas Wayne's son an old box, it sets in motion a series of events that shake Batman's world. Suddenly, dark villains — including "The Demon's Head" Ra's al Ghul, the Penguin, and Catwoman — as well as dozens of mysterious mercenaries are battling to possess the simple drinking bowl now in Batman's hands.
As the battles build to a savage crescendo and deadly duels between combatants are played out, many questions demand to be answered: Could this really be the Holy Grail of legend?
Can even its apparently miraculous abilities keep Batman alive long enough to find out?
And what does one do with it if it is the real thing?

Conan the King comics
Conan is a Cimmerian (not to be confused with the historical Cimmerians), a barbarian of the far north; he was born on a battlefield and is the son of a blacksmith. He grew up fast: by age fifteen he was already a respected warrior, participating in the destruction of the Aquilonian outpost of Venarium. After this he was struck by wanderlust and began the colorful and exciting adventures chronicled by Howard (and subsequently, after Howard's death, by others), encountering fabulous monsters, evil wizards, and beautiful wenches and princesses - he has travelled throughout the world and been a thief and outlaw, a mercenary and commander of a mercenary company, and a pirate. He begins building larger units of men, aiming for greater territorial ambitions, though his efforts are repeatedly thwarted - usually by the total massacre of his force excepting himself. But in his forties he finally succeeds, becoming king of Aquilonia, the most powerful kingdom of the age, having strangled the previous ruler on the steps of the throne. Although Conan's adventures often result in him performing heroic feats, his motive is more than often his own survival, enrichment or rise to power and he thus displays many of the characteristics of an anti-hero.

We're upgrading the site!
It's been a pleasure to be with you so far. I never thought that the site would grow in to a size like this so soon. But it did!
When I started the site, I planned it to be an online achieve or gallery of the local Bangladeshi comics. The first comic links were put up only to serve as temporary content. But then, the "temporary content" turned out to be most interesting among the visitors; no surprises at that.
And just look at it now: four hundred visitors without any advertisement or promotion (well, that, if you don't count me mentioning the site every week in my column in the biggest national daily of the country…)! But that doesn't count, does it? Most of the visitors are from outside Bangladesh anyway.
Just imagine what'd it grow into if we start promoting the site!
For all these months, Blogger has been a very nice host. I loved the easiness and the simplicity of it. It was so easy to open the "create new post" page, write stuff in it, copy the links, upload the pics and submitting it. Easily done. But that's where the fun ends. It's too simple. It misses out too many needed features.
I want to sort the posts by categories and tags; make the posts browsable page by page so that you don't have to dig through the achieves for something recent that you've missed… and it needed to looks cleaner and better. I didn't like the previous chocolate-cream look and although I this new black looks pretty cool in Firefox, it looks awful in IE and Opera.
So here's what I'm thinking we should do:
First, as I've mentioned in the earlier post, we're getting a domain name. BDcomics.net sounds nice and you guys apparently like it. I like it too, but would have liked a .com name a bit better. Ah well. We're getting that domain, but I'm still open to suggestions.
Also, we've clearly outgrown Blogger. We need something better, more efficient and something that has more features. Wordpress looks promising! It does all the things that we'd need and more. What do you say?
As for the hosting, me and my friend BDgamer has got it covered.
All that sounds great, doesn't it?
We're getting a domain name!
So now I'm asking you. What the domain should be?
BDcomics.com is the obvious choice. But some French dudes have already bought that name, so the next best choice is BDcomics.net. Or is it?
So, what do you suggest?

Tomorrow Stories was a comicbook series created by the legendary Alan Moore, for his America's Best Comics (ABC) line, published by Wildstorm (now a subsidiary of DC Comics).
Tomorrow Stories started in August 1999 as a collection of short stories featuring the same characters (give or take one or two) every issue. These characters were:
* Cobweb - Created by Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie.
* First American - Created by Alan Moore and Jim Baikie.
* Greyshirt - Created by Alan Moore and Rick Veitch.
* Jack B. Quick - Created by Alan Moore and Kevin Nowlan.
* Splash Brannigan - Created by Alan Moore and Hilary Barta.
An initial title in the eagerly awaited America's Best Comics line, Tomorrow Stories, was unfortunately met with much dislike from fans. With each character only given a few pages per issue to develop, it took sometime before even Alan Moore seemed completely in stride with the characters. Indeed it wasn't really until the last six issues that Tomorrow Stories really became something good. Unfortunately by then sales had dropped so low that it was discontinued.

DC Universe (November 1, 2004)
Written by Mark Waid
Art and cover by Leinil Yu and Gerry Alanguilan
A new softcover edition collecting the 12-issue miniseries that features the entire modern-day retelling of Superman. Superman's origins have been imagined and reimagined over the years. Here is a new take on the character's roots. Superman: Birthright retells the early chapters of Superman's story, from escape as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton to arrival as reporter Clark Kent at the Daily Planet and his first public exploits. Writer Waid puts his own spin on the legend, rethinking nearly every aspect of the venerable character while remaining respectful of his established history. Waid wisely integrates ideas from the popular TV series smallville but doesn't slavishly follow its innovations; for instance, a young Lex Luthor befriends Clark in high school, but unlike in the series, his sinister nature is clear even then. Waid similarly tweaks the rest of the well-known cast, from Lois Lane and Clark's other Planet colleagues to Ma and Pa Kent. Ironically, though he updates the character, Waid evokes Superman's pre-World War II incarnation, whom his Depression-reared creators kept engaged in righting society's ills. Leinil Francis Yu's stylized artwork is expressively dynamic to the point of caricature, but this larger-than-life visual approach befits the retelling of a myth.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
"There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it."---Washington Post
FROM THE PUBLISHER
This masterpiece of modern comics storytelling brings to vivid life a dark world and an even darker man. Together with inker Klaus Janson and colorist Lynn Varley, writer/artist Frank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in his saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot, ten years after the Dark Knight's retirement.
Crime runs rampant in the streets, and the man who was Batman is still tortured by the memories of his parents' murders. As civil society crumbles around him, Bruce Wayne's long-suppressed vigilante side finally breaks free of its self-imposed shackles.
The Dark Knight returns in a blaze of fury, taking on a whole new generation of criminals and matching their level of violence. He is soon joined by this generation's Robin — a girl named Carrie Kelley, who proves to be just as invaluable as her predecessors,
But can Batman and Robin deal with the threat posed by their deadliest enemies, after years of incarceration have made them into perfect psychopaths? And more important, can anyone survive the coming fallout of an undeclared war between the superpowers — or a clash of what were once the world's greatest superheroes?
Over fifteen years after its debut, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns remains an undisputed classic and one of the most influential stories ever told in the comics medium.

Daredevil Legends: Yellow
Yet another masterpiece by the team of writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale(Batman: A Long Halloween, Superman: For All Seasons, Hulk: Gray). When these two work together, magic happens.
This, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful, and possibly THE most beautiful Daredevil story ever written. This TPB is about Matt Murdock remembering his humble beginnings as Daredevil, and his first love, Karen Page. By the way, the book is called Daredevil: Yellow because the original Daredevil actually had a mainly yellow costume, later changed to all red. Anyways, this book tells of DD's origins, his boxer father, his run-ins with several villians like the Owl and Electro, and of course, his love for Karen Page. With guest appearance by the Fantastic Four, just a short cameo appearance though. This story is so touching and beautiful, you'll find yourself reading it again and again. I, for one, read the book in one sitting. Jeph Loeb did a superb job here writing this masterpiece story.
Now let's not forget the beautiful art by Tim Sale. His art in here is soft and beatiful, and works so well with the touching storyline by Jeph Loeb. The illustrations really put you right there with Matt and Karen in the comic book.
A must-have, especially if you are a Daredevil fan, beautiful, touching, and definitely a masterpeice. Other Marvel books by this team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale are Spider-man: Blue, and Hulk: Gray, both are also beautiful and touching, just like DD: Yellow. If you like this, I suggest you get yourself the other two books. Enjoy!

Asterix and the falling sky
Asterix and the falling sky
The first new Asterix album for four years has been eagerly awaited by his millions of fans
The Gauls have only one fear: that the sky may fall on their heads tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes, says Chief Vitalstatistix. Or does it? It looks as if it's come at last for Asterix, Obelix and the other villagers. And some surprising new characters fall along with the sky. Our friends soon find themselves in the middle of a space race... This new Asterix story, the first in four years, is a brilliant and hilarious tale of misunderstandings that will be loved by his millions of fans around the world.
This book brilliant. Its is witty, sharp, full of childrens' and adults' humour. Traditionalists will find it difficult as Uderzo is not living in the past but trying to keep Asterix moving forward. With digs at Manga, Disney and G W Bush, this is hilarious in the same way Obelix and Co was.
The art as always is beautiful with real attention to detail. If anything, Uderzo is keeping up with modern Bande Dessine writing, the Continental Europeans will love this. Those brits who don't like change and growth then read the old adventures but if you like to see characters change and grow and develop then open your eyes, buy, read and enjoy!
