I used to do these sorta polls all the time but I havnt in a long time. What comics are you reading? Please feel free to comment on any of them but at least list which books your reading.




...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.
