I read PAD's X-factor run from a long year ago, the one, oh whats' his fuck, guy that drew Books of Doom--Pablo Raimondi--drew. Brilliant series. Hottest Madrox has ever looked lol.
I'm not really into PAD so much, so that series is pretty much my only exposure to him, but his writing seems decent enough.
Lately I'm into Cosmic Marvel. Hunting down Essential Captain Mar-Vells and Guardians and such has been a joy
You should definitely read Young Justice.
Robin, Superboy, Impulse, "say, Robin, is that a batarang in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?". I kid you not, this and many other memorable lines you'll find in YJ.
Raimondi was a great artist, too bad he left the book.
