    what books are you reading on a monthly basis??

    Amazing Spider-Girl
    Amazing Spider-Man
    Daredevil
    Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man
    Ghost Rider
    Marvel Adventures Spider-Man
    Moon Knight
    New Avengers
    Powers
    Sensational Spider-Man
    Spider-Man loves Mary Jane
    Squadron Supreme
    Thunderbolts
    Transformers
    Ultimate Fantastic Four
    Ultimate Spider-Man
    Ultimate X-Men
    Ultimates
    Young Avengers

    Im giving Ghost Rider a 6 issue chance, I love the character, always have. but Danial Way Is a hack of a writer

    Squadron Supreme is on the chopping block too I liked it better when it was Supreme Power. Its like Rising Stars all over again. Started out great but became lame near the end.

    Thunderbolts is another. I love the whole villian redemption thing, hell i loved the fact that the Beetle cleaned up his act and reformed, he was always one of my fav villians from the early 80's come issue #110 Warren (i loathe his fucking writing) Ellis takes over the book with a all new all different Thunderbolts featuring a goverment sanctioned supervillian team straight out of Civil War which hunts down unregistered heroes. fuckin lame.

    I guess you can all tell im a Spider-Man whore. I am also a Bendis whore, however with the whole Civil War bullshit he hasnt been in the spotlight lately.

    Ultimate Spider-Man continues to be my #1 book Im totally into the Ultimate clone saga. Bagley is leaving the book at issue #110 I hope they find somebody worthy of the title to take over.

    Astonishing X-Men
    Ultimate X-Men

    I was reading Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk but I've given up on the idea of that ever being finished. On top of that, there's the other random titles I'll read now and then.

    EDIT* Oh crap, I forgot Cable/Deadpool, one of my favorites too.

    Invincible and Fables.

    Invincible is probably the best series ever. I'm loving it an inordinate amount. I love Robert Kirkman.

    52 - The only 'Big Two' comic I pick up on a regular basis. There's a lot going on, but I get the feeling it's building to a whole new world of revelations.
    Green Lantern - Now that Hank Henshaw/Cyborg/Grandmaster is becoming an important villain, I'm keeping an eye on this title. Not buying it every month, since I don't like the writing or main character that much, but will pick it up when Cyborg appears or is mentioned.
    Ultimate Spider-Man - Currently onboard for the Clone Saga and then going to drop it again. I don't care for Bendis' writing (and the quality of Bagley's art is slipping), but I pop in to read it whenever a character/concept that I liked in 616 is getting revamped (usually once every 30 issues or so).
    IDW Transformers G1 Continuity - Includes Infiltration/Escalation/whatever's next, Stormbringer and the 'Spotlight' specials. I'm really enjoying IDW's take on the Transformers and it's a refreshing change from DW's brand of bad fanfics and fanwank masquerading as continuity.
    Misc Transformers Mini-Series - Includes stuff like Beast Wars, Hearts of Steel and TF/GI Joe (but not Generations, which I don't collect).

    I'm also working on collecting all the 'Infinite Crisis' tie-in issues and past appearances of Hank Henshaw/Cyborg Superman.

    Ultimate Spider-man
    Ultimate Fantastic Four
    Ultimate X-men (although I haven't read one in agggges, has it been cancelled?)
    Ultimates (although I haven't read one in agggges, has it been cancelled? ;)  )
    New Avengers
    Conan
    All the assorted Transformers comics. But they're perilously close to being dropped from my pull list.

    I think thats it... I thought I had more. I might pick up Amazing Spider-girl next time I'm in, I enjoyed the adventures of May Parker during its last run, I'll give this new one a try!

    Also in the too many to list camp. Although the only non-Marvel/DC that I'm reading are TFs and TMNT.

    'Titles I can't miss when they come out' is a much shorter list, though:

    X-Factor
    Annihilation

    Titles that I make sure not to touch with a 10-meter cattle prod unless I was already reading them before the event: Civil War titles.

    Damn, I'm impressed with some of those lists. Right now I'm collecting:

    52
    Justice League of America
    Teen Titans
    Shadowpact

    The only non-TF comic book I get is New X-Men, to give me my teenage X-Men fix that's been sorely lacking since X-Men: Evolution went off the air. I'll also get the next X-23 miniseries when it comes out in December, though.
