Ok so I don't want this to be a flame thread by no means.

I love comics. But have mainly followed Marvel. I dig Batman, the Flash, Superman, and the Justice League, I like the Superman shows. But up till Blackest Night I've had very little interest in following DC.

Now there are things with Marvel that are lame too.

And I'm all about my Dark Horse Star Wars!

But what is your favorite Comic story arrcs?

What are things about the Comic Verse you follow you dislike?


What are your observations of the different comics?


And the rest.

I've really enjoyed the Civil War then the Secret Invasion to Dark Reign to Utopia ride that Marvel has tossed out.

The newest Anti Venom arc was cool.

Maximum Carnage is still my favorite Spiderman aside from symbiotes and clones.

Wolverine I've always liked, and recently collected the Old Man Logan run which was an interesting twist.

The Walking Dead line is from a comic published I don't think I listed. It's the Zombie survival horror-the zombie story that never ends!


And recently I started to follow the Mighty Avengers- I came around reluctantly- I've always liked Solo heroes before.

Infact it was Iron Man in charge that brought me in just to watch him fall from grace Sad Still a fun ride though,

There's good stuff to be found in any and all publishers, big and small. I don't have any favorites, although I guess I could be called a Marvel fan more than anything because I did grow up with those characters and not the DC ones.

I'm going to go with IDW because the only comic line I follow other than Star Wars is Ashley Wood's Zombies vs Robots and Zombies vs Robots vs Amazons. They have some really neat art, and I like the idea of zombies and robots fighting each other.

Will I be tarred and feathered if I admit that most everything I know about comic universes comes from movies and TV shows? I love stuff like Smallville, the Spider-Man movies, and the whole superhero genre, but I've never really picked up an actual comic book. I do know enough about them to know that they're much different from the film adaptations.

No it's just one more medium. I enjoy the redo comics but after a while it's hard to follow what's going on Smile

Yeah, like the Superman comics. There are so many "ages" and everything that it's impossible to keep up. My favorite response when someone tells me that Smallville messes with Superman continuity: "Which one?" Wink

I was definitely a Marvel guy when I was younger. I haven't followed them much in years, but I had many of the original x-men, old spidey's, avengers, FF, etc. The x-men was definitely tops for me.

Unfortunately my collection was a collaborative effort between me and my uncle, who had a nasty heroin habit. Thus, when push came to shove and he needed cash, he sold all our comics when I was in school one day.

There was some valuable stuff too. An original Tarzan comic that cost like 10 or 15 cents(cover price).


I never really bought comics after that, but a couple of years ago I got a couple of the trade paperbacks covering the years where I really followed the x-men.

Now I am just confused when I see all the different x-men titles, so I haven't bothered trying to get caught up.

That sucks! That had to have been heart wrenching!

Yeah, heart wrenching doesn't even cover it. I remember a lot of crying and not really having the right person to vent on, cause he stayed away from my house for quite a while after that.

I have noticed a couple of the comic lines seem to have many offshoots. So I pretty much just stick with the star wars comics. Although I am open to the idea of getting more of the trade paperback/omnibus versions of the x-men.

The only Xmen I have is the new X Force, with Wolverine all Black ops team of mutants sent in to kill the mutant kind haters. It's such a brutal run.

TPBs are your friend, for any and all series. I don't buy anything in single issue format anymore, even the series I consider the greatest comic to ever see print, Astro City, I only pick up in TPB format. The X-Men may seem daunting but if you do a little bit of research you'll find the TPBs you need to get for various points in their timeline.
