Whats your favourite monthly comic ATM?

Post by Otter on Tue Apr 24, 2012 8:51 am

I just read the last 3 Secret Avengers and thoroughly enjoyed it. Its a great team book with good character developments and group conflict. Remender is the writer.

As I seem to only get team books I am looking for any referals to a good single character book. Any suggestions?

Currently Daredevil under Waid and Punisher under Rucka are supposed to be v.good.

Since I buy in trade I haven't read either.

re: Secret Avengers, I thoroughly enjoyed Warren Ellis' run. I think it was issues 16-21. Personally, didn't think too much of Brubaker or Remender's take.

I've been hearing good things about Snyder's run on Batman.

The Bionic Man is by far my favourite monthly that I'm currently reading.

I'm with you Juggernaut.....I too think Secret Avengers has taken a turn for the worse since the Warren Ellis run. Same for Uncanny X-Force......the last story arc was just loopy. I'm considering dropping both of these titles as they've both lost their appeal with me. Both were terrific books in the first year on their current runs.

The Invincible Iron Man is starting to find its legs again after loosing its way during the Fear Itself "Event". I really dislike the "Event Crossovers" that Marvel continue to market each year across a lot of their titles.

I didn't mind the last couple of issues of Avengers vs X-men, but it's too early to tell.

I've been buying a lot of titles lately (I really should cut back but it's hard when there is so much goodness), I get pretty much every DC book and about a dozen Marvel / others. My fave books each month would be these:

- Batman (Snyder is such an awesome writer)
- Flash
- Aquaman
- Justice League (Shazam backups are golden)
- Action Comics
- Animal Man
- Swamp Thing
- Stormwatch (can't put my finger on why but I really like this)
- Fables (always worth admission)
- Daredevil
- Amazing Spider-man (catching up on this, halfway through spider island)
- Avengers vs X-men (guilty pleasure, it's so silly but fun)
- Saga (great new Image mature reader series, highly recommended)

If I only had 4 bucks a month though it would be spent on Batman, Snyder is too good to ignore

I'm getting Superman Family Adventures for my daughter. Mission accomplished, my 6 y.o. is reading comics!

Also got her the first trade of Tiny Titans for Xmas. Same creative team.

My favourite monthly - keeping in mind I read in Trades - is Hickman's Fantastic Four. Looking forward to collected trades of Hickman's Avengers.

I agree, Superman Family Adventures is great for the kids. I get them for my nephews and they love it

Jason Aaron's "Thor: God of Thunder" is awesome. But then I'm a huge Thor fan so there might be some bias there.

Started Warren Ellis' new crime novel, 'Gun Machine'. It's awesome, in a dark, moody, cynical, Warren Ellis kind of way! Very Happy

Sad news today Pixo, Superman Family Adventures has been cancelled Sad

The creators are making their own creator owned projects soon though (very similar style but not with DC characters of course)

Anyone reading Buffy season 9? I'm getting a little bored with it atm.
The Willow spin-off isn't that great either Sad

Also has anyone had a comic book CGC'd before?
