I was an avid reader of Battle and 2000AD as a kid. I just got hold of Charley's War Omnibus and it is great. (Charley's War was about a WW1 soldier - the art work and stories are awesome). 2000AD favourites were Judge Dredd (Chopper From Oz, The Angel Gang, The Dark Judges, Block Wars, Judge Anderson etc), Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dogg, Torquemada, Thargs Future Shocks)

Never got into US comics although I read The Killing Joke (Joker origin story)

Classics. Never seen Charley's war omnibus though. I'd like to see them.

My friend was a comic buff - never seen so many.. Slaine was his favorite I think. He played RPG dice games games every day during his Uni days - nearly always beat me. Car Wars, Space Crusade, Cyberpunk. He went on to develop games himself and is relatively famous. Teaches now as a professor of gaming.

Personally - I like the artwork and the relative lack of words in comics, so you have time to let your imagination work and fill in the details.

I like the Elric Stories - Michael Moorcock but the comics and films are sparse and incomplete.
