I am tried of see the whole Dc vs Marvel threads. They only worsen the already large rip in fan bases. Both are good and have their flaws. I always saw Dc and Marvel similar the American political parties in America. There are two major players and a bunch of lesser third parties. So besides the big two, who is your favorite publisher?
I have taken a break from Marvel and am reading IDW. TMNT and Dr. Who are better then any current Marvel title IMHO. My wallet has thanked me too. I'm very sick of Marvel events where I have to buy a million comics just to understand what's going on, and when I try to come back to an ongoing series, I'm clueless to what the storyline's are. Marvel has way too many events now too. IDW's rare and few events are much better. The crossover's and events themselves are all completely optional reads and only slightly effect the original canon of the ongoing series. Just a personal preference, but I really respect IDW for writing for people who don't have to spend their life savings on a story arc, and can completely skip it if they choose without being left in the dark.
I like Image a lot.
Avatar Press comes up with good stuff as well, but unfortunately in their comics there is rape left and right and that's kinda stupid, but still ... the stories are often alright.
I'm also liking Boom Studios more and more. I think they have a lot of potential and will get bigger over time.
The only non big 2books I read are Fatale, Walking Dead, and Saga so I guess my favorite is Image. I want to start reading Hellboy eventually but I just haven't gotten around to it.
Ha. I was about to post here when I saw that I already posted on this thread over 9 months ago. Since then, I have started pulling 5 Valiant titles on a monthly basis and plan on picking up two more (Unity and Eternal Warrior) when they are released in a couple months.
I have come to love the Valiant Universe and it has surpassed DC in my pulls and is catching up to Marvel in total pulls.
Who publishes a book makes no difference to me. I'll try any book if the concept, story, character intrigues me. People that pigeon hole themselves to any certain publisher are only short changing themselves and possibly missing out on what could be their new favorite book or character.
