Fun suggestions

Recommended Posts

With 'The Exterminators' nearly done, my monthly pull list is looking a little maudlin and heavy-going. Can anyone recommend a new 'fun' ongoing title that they like reading monthly rather than waiting for the trade? Superhero? Non-superhero?

 

I'm thinking stuff like Gail Simone's run on Birds of Prey, Starman, The Exterminators, The Losers and so on.

 

Something lighter but no less good. A yarn! A romp! Some jolly good fun!

 

Thanks for suggestions...

Madman Atomic Comics - #8 is a good starting point

Jack Staff

Invincible - very accessible

Incredible Hercules - they're just about to start a new arc next issue

Legion Of Superheroes - just started a new arc with this month

Action Comics

This last year Geoff Johns has been my good time man erm...

 

With Action Comics, the Justice Society of America and Green Lantern: the Sinestro War, he's sort of the No brainer James Cameron of comics.

Wait, did Young Lovers get good?

 

I'd also like recommendations.

 

I don't like superheroes usually, I'm a big Garf and Grant fan, and I don't mind a bit of artiness.

Incredible Hercules

Captain Britain & MI13

Guardians of the Galaxy

Gail Simone's Secret Six will be launching as an ongoing in Sept., and that should be worth your time if the mini-series is any indication.

I also really like this Keith Giffen Reign in Hell series, if you're a fan of the mystical DCU characters, but that's an 8-issue mini-series rather than a monthly.

Firmly seconded - the two previous miniseries (Villains United and Secret Six) were both great fun, and I'd recommend them to anyone in the mood for a bit of lighthearted spandex action, with a slight twist.

Sold on 'Secret Six'. Especially as I can start the series from the beginning and will go and buy the miniseries collection tomorrow! I can't believe Catman's back!

 

Definitely going to check out some of the others on the list too. Much appreciated, everyone!
