@CATPANEXE: I know you briefly mentioned G.I. Joe but I just want to expand on that a little and say that IDW is doing great things with them. There are four ongoings, G.I. Joe A Real American Hero (which continues where the original series left off), along with G.I. Joe, Cobra, and Snake-Eyes which are all involved in a big event called Cobra Civil War. If you've ever been a fan of G.I. Joe now is a great time to be reading their comics.

Also, I got issue #1 of the TMNT for my daughter and it was pretty good.
