Those are great and cannot forget: Y the last man, League of extraordinary gentlemen, Old man Logan xd
Unless someone mentioned it within the 46 pages, I suppose I'm of the few that like Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe, and Mega Man.

Loki always comes back one way or another. He was technically banished by being chained to a rock in the older comics but manages to get out of that. It doesn't help that he can talk his way through things.



Also I absolutely love The Sandman. Its a great story that its pretty much my all time favorite comic series. This is a favorites thread after all. razz

My favorites for now and forever are:

Richard Fell (Fell, best 8 issues you will ever read, the 9th is really just a re-cap)
Sam & Twitch (from Spawn but they are two awesome detectives!)
Spawn (yes even the slow paced Jim Downing story line but still Al Simmons is best)
Batman (currently enjoying Scott Snyder's and Greg Capullo's story and art)
Jesse Custer and his vampire pal Cassidy (preacher is just wonderful)
Static Shock.

I have lots... The Crow, The long halloween, the books of magic... the list goes on lol
My favorite characters would certainly be Banshee and Deadpool. Doctor Doom tickles my fancy as well, and I'm positive that it is impossible not to adore Rorschach, of Watchmen fame.

Banshee will always be on top, though.


On that note, any of the various adaptations of the X-Men series rock; I refuse to read Thor for personal disagreements, as a Scandinavian Studies major, and most of the DC universe hasn't really interested me, except for Section 8. (DOG WELDER, YEAHHH!)
I've been meaning to branch out and read some different comics, though. Suggestions?
Planetary. Alan Moore's run on Miracleman. DC's 52 and Blackest Night storylines.

Y: The Last Man is what originally got me into comics. Last year my partner and I got to meet Pia Guerra and have her sign our books!

I just recently finished up X-23 and I was hoping to get into Daken, because I had enjoyed the cross over they did earlier on in the series, but after reading issue 1 of Daken, I was quite underwhelmed. IMO they made him into a sociopathic Fabio. What sort of vibe does Old Man Logan have? I might try that one out instead.

I highly recommend X-23, although I was a bit disappointed in the final issue. I really enjoyed the rest of the series. Marjorie Lui is a fantastic writer.

Y:The Last Man is quite a bit different than the comics you were describing, but it is my favorite by far. It has fantastic characters, a nice steady pace, and well-constructed plot. It also has some excellent fight scenes, innovative and genuine. Brian K. Vaughn, the author of Y:The Last Man has recently begun a new series called Saga. Chapter One is out right now and Chapter 2 should be out in about 3 weeks, I'd imagine. Chapter One blew me away, it was incredible. It might even end up rivaling Y as my favorite. It looks very promising.
im not a nerd so i dont read comics
Deadpool is probably the greatest comic book character of all time.
Mostly because I can't decide if he's a villain or a hero. He just doesn't sit as a anti-hero though, for some reason. I can't accept it; he's got a crazy head, and part of it could very well be the greatest hero of all or the most evil villain of all.

Bah, who cares? He's cool and hilarious.

d**k Grayson is the best hero, though. Definately.
