    Use to be a big comic book fan but I haven't boughten one in a long time(last one I was got was astonishing x-men in '06) I was wondering if there is any good comics that I should check out or any suggestions people have.

    I'd highly recommend Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps, if you're looking for current ongoing series, although I'd suggest just waiting for the trades, since they'll inevitably be going up to $3.99 an issue.

    Good choices listed already. Also try the new X-Force book as it's pretty good.

    Same here actually. Are the current Deadpool series worth picking up? And more to the point, how easy are the back issues to find?

    Invincible is another great book. don't even start at the beginning get the current issue. it will pull you in and then you can go back and read the rest.

    The Walking Dead and Fables are also two excellent ongoings, but like many have already said the trade are probably the best way to go.

    Garth Ennis' run on Punisher MAX is a pretty cracking read.

    I'll echo the sentiment on the Green Lantern titles. They're excellent and the current Blackest Night series is awesome.

    I'd look up anything by Geoff Johns, particularly his recent Action Comics run with Gary Frank.

    I'm really enjoying The Flash: Rebirth. It's the most excited I've ever been about The Flash.

    I'd also vote for Final Crisis: Legion Of Three Worlds with Geoff Johns writing and the legendary George Perez on pencils. It certainly took awhile for them to finish it, but well worth the wait.

    If you enjoyed Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I'd also recomment Season Eight. Even though some issues have been better than others, I've really enjoyed it overall.

    Marvel?

    Bendis and Brubaker's run on Daredevil were quite awesome. Also, Brubaker's Captain America.
