    With alot coming out this year, and some already up and running (BND), I just wanted to see if there's any particular titles or storylines people are looking forward too, that're coming up this year?
    Between a new Cap, Alex Ross' Invaders story, The continuing of the GL saga, and Secret Invasion. There's quite a lot out there to look forward too, and some out there that some of us may be missing... So, what's coming in '008 that you can't wait to read?

    As for me personally, I'm looking forward to reading Millar's Fantastic Four.

    The conclusion to Y: The Last Man. Coming out next week or the week after that, can't remember.
    Secret Invasion as well. Add Final Crisis to the list. I disliked Countdown and it's been warming up to me lately, but not to the level where i actually look forward to reading it, it's more of a "have to force myself to read so i know what's going to happen" thing. I seriously doubt that this'll be their last Crisis ever... But let's hope so.

    The Twelve, definitly. Liked the beginning and hopefully we'll see them more immersed in the new world they've found themselves in. I'm sure there's more that's coming that i know, but i think that's the biggest anticipations for me this year.

    The 30th. Can't wait.

    Other then that, End of Messiah CompleX, next chapter is the Dark Tower series, 100 Bullets ramping up to the finale... Seeing if Mavel can make something outa all this Spiderman nonsense. I really still have a bunch of old stuff I need to catch up on from last year as well.

    'No One is Safe' arc in The Walking Dead, seeing what becomes of that.

    The end of Messiah Complex/Astonishing, which has been :bowdown: so far.

    X-Force, Cable, and Deadpool books.

    Secret Invasion :bowdown:

    Seeing what the fuck is going on in the Spidey universe.

    Finishing up the Tournament in the Capital Cities of Heaven in Iron Fist :cool:

    :werd:. Have you seen the variant cover for 50?

    I'm also looking forward to Resurrection from Oni Press (2nd issue just came out).

    Invincible 50 and beyond.

    Secret Invasion even though I don't follow Marvel too closely.

    Kick-Ass by Mark Millar.

    Probably some others I'm not remembering.

    Kirkman always seems to think of the most clever things. Making a superhero variant for a zombie comic, while everyone else is making zombie variants for superhero comics. Genius.

    I wonder what will be more cost effective. Buying it on ebay, or ordering a bunch of extras to fulfill my shop's order to get it...

    I've been enjoying Messiah CompleX greatly, it really reminds me of the older X-cutioners Song and Fatal Attractions type of events. Can't wait to see what they have planned for Uncanny X-Men #500. It's only five issues away.
