    I've finished just about all of the 125 books I've got. Time for something new.

    Reallllly dig Y and Fables. Kick-Ass is great, anything similar to these I should look for today?

    Told ya you would dig it.

    Invincible is really good, for a typical "costumed hero" story it has some unique twists.

    Walking Dead is fucking awesome.

    There is a book called The Boys that I really like. It is Garth Ennis' new stuff (guy who wrote Preacher)

    Ex Machina. It's written by the same guy who wrote Y. Basically a former superhero that can talk to machines (the only super powered individual on the planet) who hangs up his costume and runs for mayor of new york. It's on issue 44 now, and the series is set to end on 50. Really good book.

    Have you gotten on Warskrull yet? We have a big variety of comics there. If not, get a rapidshare account, maybe $25 for 3 months and go to the /rs/ board on 4chan.org. I've found them to be the fastest for new releases.
