    It's been about 13-14yrs since I stopped collecting. A friend of mine at work showed me The Walking Dead and I thought it was great. That got me wondering what all I have missed. So that being said I'm sure you all have some good suggestions. What are some of the Must See series/Arcs from the past 10yrs?

    Invincible is from the same guy (Robert Kirkman) that writes TWD. Read that, they're up to issue #51 this week. Green Lantern, and Green Lantern Corps are great, Captain America is a must read as well.

    I second Y: the Last Man. Amazing book.
    Ultimate Spider-man continues to be pretty good.
    Astonishing X-men.
    I liked the Messiah Complex cross over alot.
    Runaways is good stuff, although they take forever for new issues.
    100 Bullets
    The Boys :bowdown:

    Thats all I can think of. Never been into DC stuff so you would have to ask someone else about that.

    I think the current series is only at #40 so you should try from #1. If you're downloading, it shouldn't be too hard to find.

    I went to lone star when i went up there. best shop in dallas however, is probably Titan Comics. I love their shop. I goto Lone Star in Arlington, since it's close to work.

    Now that I think about it, Titan is close to home so I might cancel my sub and go there :o
