I used to read a lot when I was younger. Now I mainly pick up stuff by a select few writers:

Gaiman
Moore
Miller
Ennis
Ellis
Morrison
Azzarello
Vaughan

I'll pick up anything by them. They are the best of the best IMO. I'm finishing up V for Vendetta before the movie hits. It's pretty good but thats not surprising from Moore.

I read them when I was younger... really only Marvel stuff, between Secret Wars and the early 90s.

I do have an an almost 200 issue run of uncanny x-men. I got a subscription one year in the 80s sometime and just kept it going. I don't even open them anymore, but I did see that Claremont is writing it again so I meant to read a couple of them. That was always the book I was into the most. The villains were real, they didn't just congratulate themselves on how evil they were or do things just for the sake of being evil. They didn't really think they were villains.

I read that one, spider-man, iron man, punisher... I liked the cosmic ones a lot too. Everything but the Avengers pretty much... they always seemed a little too cornball for me.

I'll fight to the death with any man who'd argue against the "Inferno" storyline in X-Men/New Mutants being the best ever.

I don't read fiction at this stage in my life, and I'm not sure if that's a bad or a good thing. I mostly read for reference. For instance, I'm reading several books right now on the history of Broadcast Radio, several books about web design, several books about being an expectant father, and also a book about how to speed read better. Hell, Amazon drops a package in my mailbox at least once a week.

Was that the one where Jean merged with her clone? I think I remember that.

It's pretty cliche but I read the Phoenix/Dark Phoenix in trade back then and that was probably my favorite. Days of Future Past I remember liking a lot too.

I always seemed to like Marvel much more than DC. The Secret Wars and the Infinity Gems storylines were probably my favorites. It's been so long since I have picked up a comic, that I wouldn't be able to navigate my way through the storylines. Marvel has their "Ultimates", which I don't understand.

The Marvel titles I used to get were

X-Men
Avengers
Spider Man
Silver Surfer
What If....?


As far as DC goes, I got into Superman, Batman, and the Justice League. I never kept up with them regularly, just browsed.

However, one of the last series I bought in comics was DC's Kingdom Come. It was an excellent story of the near future and how normal people were untrusting of super-powered people. Very dark.

My first job was at a comic book store, when I was 12 i made $5/hr store credit. Worked there for 4 years.

I stopped buying/reading comics around the time the Onslaught stuff started.

Too bad none of the stuff I have is even worth the paper its printed on anymore, the market used to be so hot and so collectible. People used to pay so much for stuff like signed Gen 13 and whatnot (ive got 1-3 of the mini series signed by everyone, they were at our store, and there's even an ad for the signing event in one of the issues).

Fun stuff, I miss it.

I liked comic books when I was a little kid. My uncle, who was only 13 years older than me, had a huge collection that I would read when I went to my grandmother's house. I never understood his collection, though, because he had Sgt. Rock, Archie, and then those weird romance comics.
