What's your favorite current DC comic? 7 years 9 months ago #6320

Let's take a different approach here. Instead of focusing on reasons why we hate certain comics, let's share the love and talk about our favorite currently-published comics.

For DC, mine is R.E.B.E.L.S. I was too young to read the original L.E.G.I.O.N./R.E.B.E.L.S. run when it was first published, but I read them later and absolutely loved them. And I think Bedard follows in Giffen/Grant/Peyer's footsteps with some excellent space opera. The rebellion against Starro covers a lot of ground and we get to see a lot of great alien races and faces we haven't seen in a while in the DCU. And the new characters introduced are really great (with the possible exception of Tribulus, who is the typical "GRRRR!!"-monster type... waiting to see some development of him and his back story).

I have some reservations about the revisions to Starro, but at least it was done in a way that doesn't really violate his previous appearances too much. And his lieutenants are pretty sweet (especially Storm-Daughter).

The important thing here is that characterization of Dox is dead on, and I'm very happy to see that as he's long been one of my favorite characters.

I haven't read everything DC has out there, certainly, but I still think All-Star Superman is one of the best things I've read in my life. That's, uh, still recent enough to count, right?

Supergirl is decent but I mostly like it for the Middleton covers. :s

B) Does the Vertigo imprint count as a DC comic?
If so, since The Sandman is no longer current, my vote has to go to Hellblazer!

I'm not the biggest DC fan (I can only keep tabs on one overly convoluted universe at a time!) but I was really enjoying Power Girl until Palmiotti and Connor ended their run.

If we're counting Vertigo, The Unwritten and Madame Xanadu are outstanding. House of Mystery is a fun read as well.

Secret Six has been my favourite lately. This last Catman's arc (issues 19-22) was a complete pleasure to read.

I've been pushing Daytripper forward for a while now, and finally given it a chance tonight after reading your recommendation and remembering about it. Just done with #1, and it completely blew me away!

From the main character's name, to the locations and everything... I went in completely unaware that Bá and Moon were writing this book, and it's so filled with references to brazilian literature and places. I actually do live like 15mins away from the Municipal myself.

Awesome surprise with this book, just wanted to register it somewhere. Thanks 600W!
