I spent an enjoyable hour or two in Forbidden planet on weds flicking through all the major DC/Marvel titles. The conclusion I came to was that I preferred more of the current DC comics than Marvel ones, the notable exceptions being Scarlet Spider and Indestructible Hulk which I thought were great. What do others prefer, who do ya reckon currently has the best comic line up?

Marvel is right now producing more high quality books than DC. DC was doing better than Marvel at the beginning of the New 52, but since then, the New 52 has slowly declined in quality, and has struggled through numerous cancellations, and a bad editorial.

I have preferred Marvel as of late. I have dropped my DC pull list from 8 about six months ago to 2 now. In the same time, I increased my Marvel pulls from 7 to 13.

Valiant is producing the best comics at the moment in my opinion.

I prefer DC at the moment. Neither companies are at their highest quality ever, but I think DC is putting out more high quality books than Marvel for the time being.

I'm reading more DC books and have dropped more Marvel books. I like DC's series more. But we have different taste. Both are great though

Even with the New 52, DC are still my favourite company. I'd be willing to read more DC books than Marvel to put it that way.

I prefer DC's books to Marvel's. I just love their characters and usually darker tone.

@wolverine08: DC's cancellations have mostly been to really crappy books. And in return, we've gotten Justice League of America, Superman Unchained, Batman/Superman, Earth 2, Batman Incorporated, and many more.

Whoever dares ask this questions will never get a truly straight answer. One must read books on their own and formulate their own opinion

It's too close to call. I actually think both companies are doing better than before. I'd say Justice League has marginally improved since its bad opening arc. The bat books are in the midst of a golden age of sorts - where many of them are stacked with serious creative talent. Green Lantern is also pretty solid, though its savior has just left the book. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are doing better than they have in ages.

Interestingly enough, Marvel's A-list stars aren't really leading the charge for them right now, but rather a lot of their B-list heroes. Hawkeye, Daredevil, Secret Avengers, Scarlet Spider, and Venom seem to be getting the most buzz among readers. The big names are still selling of course, but when it comes to quality they're not quite there. That's not to say they haven't been decent. I think the NOW initiative was pretty effective in attracting new readers while not totally alienating old ones.

When looking at the negative, Superman books have been decidedly average. The new Unchained book is certainly a step up, but it remains to be seen how long Jim Lee can last. Probably not more than a year. For Marvel, the main Avenger titles have been pretty ho-hum. Iron Man and Thunderbolts have also been really underwhelming.

Hawkeye is great...But to me, DC is producing more gems. Batman, Nightwing, Supergirl, Batgirl (which has been improving dramatically) Superman Unchained, Justice League (including JLD and JLA) All of the Green Lantern stuff, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Demon Knights (soon to be RIP), Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman. So on, and so forth.

Marvel. Hawkeye, All the Avengers books, Thor, Daredevil are excellent.

Thanos Rising,Avenging and Superior Spider-Man are great.

DC.

GL , GLC and Aquaman are kicking ass.

GL : NG, JLA and JL are good , not great.

Don't read Batbooks

Talon, Katana, RHatO are ok and I keep them around in hopes they improve.

..Yes that's true but not all of us are in "one camp". Must be some like me who aren't labelled DC or Marvel, so I'm interested to know what those people prefer just now.
