How many comic people do we have on this board that actually get weekly pull lists or at least go to the comic store weekly or a few times a month?
For the past few years I've toiled with the idea of getting back into comics. I stopped about 5-6 years ago, and then we had a tiny comic shop open up here in town (that only lasted 6 months or so). I couldn't help but support the store so I ended up picking up and reading Grant Morrison's Batman RIP arc and then the first 5 issues or so of the rebooted Batman & Robin. I've always been more of a DC guy, and I initially stopped reading right around Identity Crisis, which I also enjoyed. I never touched much Marvel, but I liked the original Ultimate Spider-Man run, though I get the impression that that isn't a cool opinion among serious fans. So basically my monthly hauls were a select few DC books and then some indie stuff ... I was really enjoying Kirkman's Invincible but I remember it going downhill around when I stopped. Isn't someone actually reprinting the original TMNT series right now? That's awesome.
So, I realize I'm not being very broad, but if I was to get back into comics, anyone have any recommendations for some can't miss books? Or some key graphic novels I could pick up at the library to fill that gap from 2005 or so until now? I realize I'm not being very broad in my tastes, but then again, it was never very broad to begin with. Also, where do you Cincinnatians shop? Back in the day I would go to the Comic Book World in Cheviot. It's renamed now and just not that great. The best one I ever went to was the Queen City Comics on route 4 (I've actually never been to the original).
twentyshots, I'm looking at you, buddy.
