...and I'll even rank them for you \:\)

1. THUNDERBOLTS! Only comic I've collected from day one, and still collect. It's gone through a hell of a lot of changes; and each change is glorious. I've never been unhappy with this comic, and that's over 130 issues! WOW! 130 issues of AMAZINGNESS!!!

2. X-FORCE. Kyle and Yost make a dynamite pair of writers. From New X-men to this; I think their work is astonishingly good. They have a great love for their characters, and a great knowledge from which to draw other Marvel characters into their mix.  Only Fabian and Kyle/Yost have ever made me cry from their writing (in a good way).

3. TIE - Dark Avengers and Dark Wolverine. Both excellent stories about very anti-heroes. Great arc, great art, great everything.

5. ASTONISHING X-MEN. Simply beautiful art; with a great team selection and Warren Ellis writes a fantastic Emma Frost.  The story is provocative and the various character interactions make me smile (Armour/Beast, Emma/Storm, Wolverine/Scott, all excellent).

6. UNCANNY X-MEN. Great stories, let down by "porn" art (that I didn't notice until someone pointed it out, darn it!).

7. MS. MARVEL. This probably would be higher (above Uncanny at-least), if last issue hadn't been very disappointing. ;\)

8. TIE - Deadpool and Deadpool: Merc w. a Mouth. Mindless fun, from start to finish; and in Deadpool you can pretty much do anything and it works. Alas, never, EVER as good as Cable and Deadpool; which was probably my next favourite comic ever after Thunderbolts and New X-men. \:\(

10. AVENGERS: INITIATIVE. Just started. So far (all of one issue) I enjoyed it \:D

Not to long ago dropped Runaways, Young Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and X-Factor. Partly I wanted to just collect 10 comics MAX, and partly they just stopped being interesting/dynamic.

Vengeance Of The Moon Knight is #2.99 per issue.
Check out the latest solicitations on Newsarama.
Only #1 is #3.99
 
I agree though, $3.99 is too much per issue, especially for a mini.  Hence my I'm not buying Immortal Weapons or Ghost Rider: Heaven's On Fire.

I'm a 'bit' behind in my reading but the last time to the comicstore I got the following series

Marvel:
- Amazing Spider-Girl (cancelled, but I've heard the Spider-Girl will feature in the new Web of Spider-Man series, so I'll definitly follow her there)
- Amazing Spider-Man
- Astonishing X-Men
- Black Panther
- Daredevil
- Fantastic Four
- Frank Castle: Punisher
- House Of M: Civil War (limited)
- Hulk
- Immortal Iron Fist (cancelled, not sure I'll follow the Immortal Weapon series)
- Incredible Hercules
- Moon Knight (cancelled?)
- Ms. Marvel
- New Avengers
- New Mutants (not sure I understand the recent development for the young mutants of the Marvel Universe. First we got a New Mutants series which ran for 13 issues, then we got a New X-Men: Academy X series (probably because a 'X' sells) to be cancelled with #46 and replaced by a Young X-Men series, cancelled with #12 and replaced once again by a New Mutants series?????????????????????)
- NYX: No Way Home (limited)
- Punisher
- Punisher War Zone (limited)
- Runaways
- Savage She-Hulk (limited)
- She-Hulk (cancelled!)
- Thunderbolts
- Uncanny X-Men
- X-Men: Legacy

Thinking of adding Nova and the Avengers relaled series (Dark Avengers, The Mighty Avengers, Avengers: The Initiative) and perhaps Captain America with #600 and Thor?

DC:
- Birds of Prey (cancelled!) \:\(
- Green Lantern

Down to only one DC book after the cancellation of BoP \:\( ,if Barbara Gordon gets another series (Oracle series or a supporting role in another series I'm getting that one, if not I probably stick with only one DC book) \:\)

CAPTAIN AMERICA (and obviously REBORN), DAREDEVIL, NOVA and THOR.

At DC, the two GREEN LANTERN books, JSA, FABLES.

FLASH: REBIRTH (hold on, did I get CAP and FLASH mixed up there...?) I'll be seeking in trade. Same with other things.

These are what come charging to mind. I'm still picking up THE TWELVE and other odds and sods.

I spend a lot of my dough on reprints. Got a PLASTIC MAN hardcover a month ago that rocked!

Reading: I've finished the PLASTIC MAN hardback. It leaves you wanting more and that's the kind of showbiz that works. Also: SEAGUY by Grant Morrison and Cameron Stewart, the brilliant Vertigo one-shot THE FACE by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo (it makes NIP/TUCK seem like a trip to the vet ), THE ENIGMA (an eight-parter from the same team), THE TERRITORY a four-part Dark Horse mental-thriller or somesuch by Jamie Delano and David Lloyd, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #173 with Black Lightning by Gerry Conway and Dick Dillin and all the Jim Woodring and Kim Deitch I can dig up.
Listening: The Carter Family, THE THREEPENNY OPERA, Sebadoh, Led Zep, Frank Zappa, Rickie Lee Jones...
Flicks: The original BEDAZZLED with Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore. What the hell good are remakes?

CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI:13 is a book I just have to pick up the last few issues of. A great series! Down the freaking plughole.

Will Marvel try to get Alan Davis involved in the next CAPTAIN BRITAIN step? It's the obvious step.

I only read Fantastic Four.

If it's true that there'll be a Pushing Daisies comic, I may decide to check that out.
