Hopefully I get back there soon and I'll have to be sure and put DD on the must read list! Thanks for the recommendation.
It's too bad you passed on DD. I recommend the book to any new reader because, for the most part, the stories are episodic, like the comics I loved when I was a kid and first collecting. There's a story arc, but it's minimal - not much time spent on it. The rest of each book has just been a blast to read and each ish has been pretty self-contained. Again, it's like what comics USED to be. Just great reading with exceptional art.
I might try a new Daredevil as well. I haven't bought singles in a while since comics have gotten so expensive, and I don't want to try something out, then find out I like it, and have to commit to several more issues. I might as well wait for the trade.
But if those Daredevil issues are standalone I might pick one up to see what it's like.
The title was also restarted recently and everything that happened before the restart was kind of summed up in the first issue and it hasn't played a big part in any of the stories I've read so far. It's just been great fun.
hadn't read a comic in years but some ppl told me to check it out, pretty great imo

Saga. 4 issues deep...maybe 5 now, I'm not sure. Awesome space-opera type ish from genius Brian K. Vaughan.
Also, if you were bummed on mainstream (or even indie) comics ten years ago, I doubt you will find a whole hell of a lot to get excited about now. Ten years ago, there was so much good stuff, in my opinion, that I could not even afford everything I wanted to buy. Now there is significantly less stuff that interests me.
There are some spectacular books right now, but those are few and far between. Ten years ago, seriously, every book by Marvel just about, was good, and there were so many new indies coming out every week...some made it to Diamond distribution level, and others I had to throw a couple bucks in an envelope and mail it to the creator to get the book, but there was so much.
Now the "indie" comics section of most comic shops is comprised of movie/TV show adaptations and adult-ified fairytale comics (for real, how many Grimm's Fairytales comics need to exist with a leggy/busty Snow White that would make Jim Balent blush on the cover).
I do remember ordering Harvey Turnbolt # 1 though, back in like 2001.
