Chew isn't very good.

I'd rank their top 10:

1. Saga
2. Fatale
3. The Manhattan Projects
4. Glory
5. Prophet
6. Invincible
7. Mind The Gap
8. Morning Glories
9. Thief of Thieves
10. The Walking Dead

I'd read Chew over Morning Glories any day of the week
other than that, and not counting the books I haven't read, good list

I was with Chew for the first couple arcs, but it stopped being interesting when it was just the same thing all the time. :smt102

There's a mystery to it, though. It's not just the same plot every issue. You're working towards uncovering that mystery.

But I liked LOST, so stuff like that appeals to me.

LOST was the worst show in the history of television.

Yeah, I do agree about the part that Image is more interesting now rather than when they were blatantly ripping off a lot of Marvel and DC concepts.

For me, the difference between Lost and MG is that Lost actually gave us clues to the mystery and had likable/interesting characters whose side stories kept me interested

MG, I gave up after two years because, at the end, it felt like I literally read the same issue three months in a row and I stopped caring about the few characters I didn't want to murder myself.

Agreed. It's like they added elements from Survivor with sci-fi mixed in.

More interesting definately but not as commercially recognized which is a shame.

Uh, Gilligan was actually interesting as opposed to the example I just posted.

I liked when they formed an alliance with Ben to vote Widmore off the island. Pretty gutsy.

Also.. finding out Hurley was the winner, during the finale/reunion show was pretty cool. He played a fair game throughout the run.
