Noh-Varr is actually really grrrrr8 in it, and that's saying something cause I've always regarded him pretty poorly

Ahhh I picked up Young Avengers today, and all the past issues (I just got paid yesterday eheheh) and it's so good! Definitely recommending if you're not already on that train.

That's so great! The art style is so different for it's time, I love it! And yeah, I agree on that fact about TWD. It's in that much media nowadays, and pretty much every representation has been spot on. I loved the Telltale game of the Walking Dead, it was pretty interesting seeing different characters.
But yeah, I'll probably pick up Fables then. I'm sure I can gradually catch up.

SANDMAN SANDMAN SANDMAN AHHH
I'm like so close to Danny Vozzo (colorist)! He's such a great guy! :D We had a Western Civ II class together! n_n; Omg I can't believe I didn't mention that before
But yessssss the Owls was probably my favorite Batman arc (outside of Death of the Family). Seriously awesome story.
The really great thing about TWD, is the fact that it gets non-comic readers into the world of comics. That's the real draw to it. It's given so much exposure to the comic world that movies like Batman and Iron Man just can't do.
Anyway yeah, Fables 10/10 for sure. But you *must* start at the beginning to understand it so it's a seriously difficult read if you don't have the financial support. At least there's a game coming out, so theoretically you could start with that :p

Cool, I'll definitely have a look around then. And yeah, I've been reading the new Batman, The Court of Owls are great! And I've wanted to get into Fables for a while, but I'm reading Sandman at the moment, which is more than enough Vertigo for anyone haha.
And The Walking Dead is just basically a given for most comic fans I find nowadays. I'd recommend some other Image stuff though, they've had some really great stuff come out the last 3 or 4 years. Definitely go for Saga, that's an amazing read.

Definitely worth picking up if you can get a good deal for 'em. My boyfriend is totally crazy for the Defenders, even that weird 2011 "maybe it happened, maybe it didn't" thing lol, so he'd be the person to ask.
I'm ever so slightly spread out. I absolutely adore Fables (pretty much anything Willingham does, actually), New 52 Batman, and The Walking Dead, so I can't say I'm Marvel exclusive.
But when it comes to superheroes, Marvel all the way x100 <3

Yeah, the art's really cool. And I haven;t actually read the last Defenders series, the one that lasted for like 12 issues. Is it any good?
Also do you spread out much publisher wise, or are you most Marvel?

Ah Fearless Defenders! What's his face, Sliney is the artist, right? I've heard a lot of good things, but haven't picked it up yet myself. Yeah, I read the Defenders for a while too. Sooo sooo good. ;;
All New X-Men has been great too. So glad that Summer's is finally cracking. I mean, the guy has always been askew, but now it's like hnnnggg >:3

Yes! Matt Fraction has been working wonders with it. I've only been collecting it in paperbacks though, so i've only read the first 6. And I've heard the latest Uncanny Avengers arc is pretty cool, I'm not reading that at the moment though. I'm really digging All New X-Men though, and Fearless Defenders, which was something i didn't even intend to read but it's really great!

Sorry, I need to bask in the glory of someone other than me who actually read AvX for a moment.
Okay. Probably the most unsatisfying ending in all of Summer's history of bad endings. :/ I mean really, what did he do other than beat up little girls the whole time? But still, I have a feeling it *had* to go the way it did for the grand design of things. So ultimately it ended up being one of my favorites. :)
I read Uncanny Avengers for a little while after that, but kinda dwindled out of it. Super, super into the new Hawkeye <3

Eh, I liked it enough, i just thought it kinda dragged on at the end, cause while the concept of using K'un L'un is cool, it gets old after like 3 updates. Great twists though! And I'm also just a big fan of John Romita Jr's art.
You following any of the newest stuff?
