DVDs from the library.

comics: I tend to favor underground comic artists
and gold and silver age super hero stuff (to you non-nerds that
means comics from the 50's & 60's). There are still a handful
of current titles that I read on a weekly basis. Some artists and
comics I like: Crumb, Clowes, Charles Burns, Harvey Pekar, Los Bros
Hernandez, Peter Bagge, Lynda Barry, Evan Dorkin, Concrete, Shazam,
Plasticman, the Punisher, Batman, and Superman.
