    Default I need a good New Comic

    I have read through nearly 200 titles over this last month and not a single title has excited me. Where have all the great comics gone!

    Anyone has a suggestion? The best I have seen is Incognegro, based on the Harlem Renaissance

    Immortal Hulk by Al Ewing and Joe Bennett.
    And Doctor Strange by Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz.

    I still say that in terms of long term writing quality, it's damn hard to go past Transformers: MTMTE/LL.

    If you are making a list of five ongoing titles/"One And Done" trades/titles that have wrapped that really worked for you, what's on that list?

    Currently, not a whole lot. The eternal warrior series has been OK. Nothing great. There was a French tranlation Noir series that is OK, also not great. X-O was ok - Matt Kind I think. Not great. There are dozens of other titles that have been so boring I barely remember them including Dan Danger, Mind MGMT, Crosswinds, The Brave and the Bold was actually decent, Divided States of Hysteria.. ugg, Quantum and Woody is just blah...Marvel two and one - just waiting for the FF to return...

    Going off of that, have you looked through any issues of The Wild Storm?

    It's a DC title.

    Or look into new old comics. Teenage Mutan Ninja Turtles: color classics omnibus vol.1 by IDW. I had lots of fun with this book.

    Look to the 80s and late 90s for good old comics. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    no that sounds interesting. Mark Waid is a weirdo, but great writer.

    I thought Mind MGMT was incredible. Have you checked out Monstress?
