Favorite Current Monthly Titles

Ok guys, this is pretty self explainatory...

Im looking for your top three favorite current monthly titles, and if you can please provide a short summary of why it's your favorite.

Purpose of this thread: I want to know what the members of KMC look for in a quality comic book. What's most important to YOU: Character development, plot, action, art , story etc...

Be Honest, everyone has different tastes, opinions, and likes/dislikes.

Ill do mine...

1. Batman: I love the complexity of this title. When it comes to comics, they're usually pretty straight forward, and not all that hard to understand. However, Batman is a little more complex and mind bending in it's plot, which makes it really fun to read. Batman also has deeper themes than most titles, and the character itself in IMO opinion is the most intriguing in all of comics.

2. Nova: Even though it's fairly new series, I find Nova to be extremely well written with incredible art. I love where they're going with the character, and see him almost as a Green Lantern for Marvel, but with more of a burden on his shoulders. It has great action, and I love the interaction between Richard and the Worldmind.

3. JLA- I don't know why, but Justice League is one of the books I forward to reading the most. I guess I've just always loved the concept of having all of my favorite heroes on one team. You never know which member is going to be the focus of each issue. I've also really enjoyed the storylines in this new JLA series. From Tornado's issues with his body, to the Grundy/Amazo dilemma, and now with the whole injustice League situation... I just think it's been a real fun title to read. Another important factor is the lineup which i have to say Im liking more and more every issue. Especially with Firestorm now a member. Finally, the art isn' to shabby either.

Honorable mentions: Thor, Superman, and Green Lantern.

Really?!!? I would of thought Thor was in your top 3 for sure.

Care to give a reason why you like them so much?

Thor: Thor is back, and he is kicking @$$ and taking names. Putting everyone in their place from Ironman and the government to Genocidal maniacs.

Green Lantern(Kinda): Not much to say. A very well written Green Lantern Title is always and should always be in everyone's top 3.

And I really don't have money to get a third

Thor's monthly?

I would put down Thor and Runaways as well, but they're not out every month are they? Seems more like every other month to me :/

Yea, Thor's monthly.

You're so right though. Some months it's consecutive, then others they skip one, it's really frustrating.

Captain America- Since Brubaker has been on the title I have yet to read a bad issue. it's just a consistently interesting read. Brubaker does the espionage well and makes even the cheapest of twists seem grand. Highly recommended. This title is always at the top of my pull list.

Green Lantern- This is brilliant, Geoff Johns = Superb writer. The Sinestro corps story line was one of the best story lines I have ever read. The only thing I don't like about it at the moment? Ivan Reiss isn't drawing it sad

Daredevil- Just such good read. Matt Murdock is at his most interesting when his life is down the pan and Brubaker does this soooo well.

There a few other titles I could mention but most of the stuff, i wait for the trades yes

How is Batman/Superman? It seems really interesting, never picked it up though.

Is it canon? Or is it kind of like an All-Star type thing?


Would that be regular X-men? Is that the one you like best? Why? Is it because thats your favorite line-up?

PR, it's not "all my month titles" but FAVOURITE monthly titles.
