basically Image's current version of a Teen Titans-esque book, where the kids are all that's left to protect earth, both from a pending threat from space that killed all the older heroes, and from domestic troubles beginning to rear their heads. it's brutal, bloody, action-packed, and awesome. issue 5 (I think...maybe just 4, I can't remember) just came out a week or so ago.

If I remember correctly, Danger Club #5 came out near the end of April. Issue #6 should be coming out relatively soon and the trade paperback of the first 4 issues is currently available for $9.99. It is absolutely worth every penny.

This. The quality of Aquaman really took a plunge during the Throne of Atlantis arc and unfortunately, it never fully recovered.

So I guess it goes without saying that Hawkguy is pretty much Marvel's best book, by far.

I do like Bendis's X-books, but, Hawkguy is the only one that I would put in the same class as some of the other books being listed.

If Hellboy was being released at faster rate it would've definitely been in my top 5. A little surprised there's been no love for it.

1) Hawkeye
2) The Sixth Gun
3) Fatale
4) Stumptown
5) ...Jake Ellis

Honorable mention goes to Blacksad, since I'm not sure that a book that comes out once every two or three years counts.

All-New X-Men
Thor, God of Thunder
Iron Man
Aquaman
Avengers

Not a lot of DC is interesting me and I've limited time for reading these days. Mostly reading Marvel and over all, far behind, but even caught up, I'd say my list would be mostly Marvel still. Mind you, there are the Bat-titles to read still and Wonder Woman. I've yet to get to any of those yet since the 52 started.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind on Gold Digger or it would be in the list too.

1. Mind MGMT
2. Thor, God of Thunder
3. Hawkeye
4. Harbinger
5. All New X-Men


As for new or mini-series books:
Ten Grand, Jupiter's Legacy, Private Eye, The Wake, Suicide Risk

Just got into Sixth Gun, need to get my head into it, but love of that could grow. Also like Saga, but sometimes, the weird for the sake of weird take me out of the story, and Archer and Armstrong was in contention there too.

Best move Johns made with Aquaman - keeping him away from the throne.
Worst move Johns made with Aquaman - putting him back on the throne.
Whether it's Arthur, Namor, T'Challa, etc - stories about them ruling or defending their country are just booooring to me.
