    Immortal Iron Fist has always been pretty good for me... great art, great writing, and great action.

    Same goes to Cable and Deadpool.

    Walking Dead has slowed down a bit, but that can only mean shit's gonna pop off real soon.

    walking dead 41 just turned it up to fucking 11 :eek4:

    invincible, criminal, mouse guard, and fables NEVER disappoint.

    if you're looking for more marvel; thor, x-factor, punisher max are all titles that have never really ever disappointed me. and even though most of you guys don't share my sympathies to New Avengers/Mighty Avengers, but I've enjoyed every single issue of those two as well.

    Yeah, Thor's been good. I've been meaning to dabble in DC's stuff, just never really knew which one was worth my time :o

    Green Lantern, JLA, JSA, and Teen Titans are usually great for DC.

    New Avengers is really good on the Marvel side.

    x-factor is getting really interesting, pietro is working with former mutants to get their powers back, but then something terrible happens to him and a couple others.

    the new story arc is the big drama fest that is x-factor, and a new threat that has already taken out layla

    It's really the only X book that did anything with House of M- one of their main goals was to investigate the cause of Decimation, with interference from a rival investigations place called Singularity that has ties to Madrox' past.

    Then Endangered Species came along, and they had a kinda-sorta encounter with Quicksilver that they had to leave hanging because they have to wait til the main titles finish with the Decimation nonsense; this current plotline/soap opera looks like its filler til Marvel works out what's going to happen in the big picture. Still a great read though.

    If Marvel had a cock, I'd suck it.

    That in mind, here's what I'm really into:

    She-Hulk (one of the funniest books out there, probably my favorite, read v1 and v2, they're both modern, not the 80's stuff, or when she was in FF.)
    Astonishing X-Men
    X-Factor (Read Madrox first)
    X-Men First Class (not for everyone, and a little kiddy-ish, but funny and simple.)
    Irredeemable Ant-Man
    Marvel Team-Up
    X-Men (I wouldn't call it consistant, but the last 10 issues have been really good, and I love the American-Anime style (I guess that's what you'd call it) art.)

    Annihilation was awesome, Annihilation Conquest is not bad so far.

    These books might have some potential IMO.

    Mighty Avengers (if they'd actually release them regularly)
    The Order (Didn't like the first two, but book 3 had me LOL'ing.)
    Avengers - The Initiative has some decent characters, but no great stories yet.

    All your standard stuff is still pretty good too, actually light-years better than they were a couple years ago, Uncanny, Amazing Spider-Man. Fantastic Four 520 through 535 is really good, galactus, Hulk, crazy-ass spin on origin, great set.

    All of this stuff is on Demonoid, damn near literally everything is on Demonoid, and releases get put up HOURS before they go on Oink. I'd give out invite codes, but I'm out.

    The only DC book I'm digging right now is Green Arrow Year One. I liked Superman Birthright too, but it's a couple years old now. Everyone keeps talking about Green Lantern, I should probably read that too, lol..
