    I'll recommend things but it all depends on what you like? DC? Marvel? Superhero? Supervillain?
    I'll pretty much read anything, though I seem to be veering more towards Marvel. I'm partial to the more 'cosmic' side of the universe; currently reading 'Infinity Gauntlet' as well as the current GOTG series and Age of Ultron. Debating checking out Nova, and I've been reading about the 'Annihilation' arc from a few years back. And The Massive is certainly getting better as it goes along. But yeah, I'll read anything at this stage.

    I'm restarting my comic collection. Just bought Civil War after like 8 years of thinking "I'm going to buy Civil War."
    Great story. Ends a bit abruptly, but brilliantly done otherwise.
    Now trying to get all of the other collections from the Civil War. My Amazon wishlist, and as a result my wallet, are crying right now.

    Anyone else read the Ultimate Marvel line? I'm very, very excited for the way the upcoming books shake up the status quo. Ultimate Marvel was in a pretty bad place after Ultimatum, but Miles Morales, Brian Wood's X-Men, and especially Josh Fialkov's Ultimates really got me excited to read the books again, and the new line takes what worked in the past year and amplifies it in the best way.

    I do hope major characters die during Cataclysm, though, because otherwise the event feels like a waste. Galactus loses and everyone lives? Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    I abandoned Ultimate Marvel after reading a few issues of All New ultimate Spider-Man, i gave the opportunity to Miles Morales but i did not feel anything for the character, i also bought the infamous "Ultimatum" crossover, it was such a trainwreck...

    "Ultimates 1" and "2" are great reads, but everything in the line went downhill from there...

    Just finished this. I loved Heartbreak Soup, but it's a little heartbreaking to see how Gilbert Hernandez basically turned Luba and friends into porn.
    There's tits and sex on practically every page. So much for his strong female characters. Bah.

    Yes. This right here. I recommend this X-Force series. It's probably my favorite comic series. The team in this X-Force is awesome and the stories are dark as hell and Deadpool is awesome in it per usual. I actually bought the first issue on accident a few months ago. I went into the comic book store and was going through their X-Force section and saw a cover that I new I didn't have so I bought it for only $4 and right before I put it away in my box of comics I saw it was #1. Pretty nifty surprise.

    I've just finished reading Infinity Gauntlet, which was about as melodramatic as a story can possibly get. Superb writing though, I felt a weird kind of sympathy for Thanos and his unrequited love, despite the fact he eradicated half of the universe's population. Maybe I'm just soft?

    Managed to nab Issues 1-12 along with #0 for $13.00! Just need 3 more issues. Delightfully weird.



    Can't wait for tomorrow to get the 100 page Harley Quinn special issue.

    Yeah there are some interesting new titles launching with this next round of Marvel NOW. Apparently that first printing of Ms Marvel sold like fucking hot cakes. Loki could be something very cool. The title I'm most excited for is Cyclops though. It's been a long time coming for him to have his own title. So much fertile ground there. http://marvel.com/news/comics/2014/2...now_qa_cyclops

    Sad to X-Men Legacy go. I knew the writing was on the wall for it a while ago, but I'm glad it at least got 25 issues. It was great stuff. One title I'm enjoying that I didn't expect to is Amazing X-Men. The whole heaven/hell back and fourth has been a lot of fun.

    And how bout this cover for Thunderbolts #22?



    So much awesome.

    I'm a bit tired of Marvel NOW! to be honest, that new Wolverine title for example is so forced and i'm hating the new costume and gun...



    I also hated how they finished "FF", one of the best "NOW" titles with awesome art by Allred, and please don't get me started on the "new" "Fantastik Four" title and their ridiculous "Incredibles" costumes...

    The only title that sounds interesting is "Punisher" and "Black Widow", i don't care for much of them i gotta give props to DC, at least they haven't restarted (yet again) their numbering for "The New 52", after 2 years and a half...

    Quick update on my comics shopping:
    -Sandman Overture #2 is finally out, and it's a truly beautiful book. The 5 month of wait was retarded, and from what I heard it won't keep it's initial bi-monthly schedule, but goes irregular. WTF? Noone cared to make sure Neil Gaiman had at least a few issues scripted before they started publishing it?! This was a sure way to get the momentum out from under the book (and yes, even a Sandman book needs momentum).

    -Moon Knight #1. I only bought this because it's written by Warren Ellis. I don't generally have interest in superhero stuff, but enjoyed his last gig at Marvel (NewUniversal a few years back), so I gave it a try. I hate to say but it feels like he was phoning it in a bit, still, it's an interesting start. I have to mention this issue has one of the ugliest covers I've seen on the stands in a long time!!!

    -Hinterkind. This Vertigo title had a strong start, I was very excited to pick it up, but by issue #4 it got derailed and the artwork seems quite rushed too. I think I'll stick with it till issue #8-is and see if it gets back on it's feet or not.

    Yeah, it's dumb and pointless to put out a comic in an "irregular basis" in that case it's better not to announce a regular series and instead do a Graphic novel or one shot and wait till Gaiman completes it!!!

    I'm interested in that one too, i enjoyed Ellis work in "Transmetropolitan", not a huge fan of "Moon night" but i can see the character's potential and if someone can pull it off is Warren...

    Currently working my way through:

    OMG it's terrible! Bad writing, bad artwork, bad jokes...so so bad. The only thing I like are some of the covers.

    I enjoyed the series (minus the bad ending)

    Spoilers: the ending sucks!

    Actually I liked the ending (and 12 Monkeys reference). I wish they would have done more of that: shown the consequences 50, 100, 500 years after the plague.

    I found Yorick a totally unlikeable, empty cipher of a protagonist: the cliche of a 20s white "dude" (who thinks he's funny).
    355 and Dr Mann were also cliches.
    Also the comic has a serious case of women in refrigerator-itis. Plenty of totally pointless woman-killing.

    I think my wife and I are the only two people in the world who *hate* Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's art work. Their run on The Flash kept me from buying the title. And now, DC has let them take over Detective Comics, which has been one of my favorite titles in the New 52. I picked up issue 30 today to try and give it a fair shot and I am completely incredulous that people think this is good art. I have no idea how long their run will be, but until it's over, I'm going to be dropping the title from my hold box. Every review I've seen online is praising the crap out of these guys. I just don't get it.

    I like Manipul and Buccellato's art, actually it's the only decent thing from that boring book...

    For me the worst artists ever are: Howard Chaykin, Steve Dillon, Rob Liefeld (shocker i know...) and Humberto Ramos...

    I agree with your list there, and would add that Steve Dillon is absolutely terrible and should never work again.

    Scott Kolins is also terrible and should not have a job.

    I just do not see the appeal of Manipul and Buccellato at all. I dislike every panel in Detective #30. I get that everyone and their brother gives them rave reviews, so to each his own I suppose.

    If we could just clone Jim Lee a few dozen times and let him be the only person to work for DC, I'd take it. David Finch, Tony Daniel, and Ivan Reis are the others at the top of my list at the moment. All have done superb work the last few years.
