What do you read? Only stuff that peaks me interest (IE the REALLY odd stuff)

Any suggestions on titles to pick up? The last great sereis that I read was Spawn Godslayer . It's a very good mix of middle age "knights and chivalry" with all the gore you'd expect from McFarlane.

What's the greatest injustice you've ever seen in a comic? ugh. . . Thats a tough one. For me it would have to be excluding bizzaro from Red Son Superman

I've been reading since last November.
I've really been getting into Blackest Night/Brightest Day.
Also: Grell's Green Arrow from the 80's, the new Power Girl series and of course Kevin Smith's Green Hornet.
But I have too many to fit into one drawer box -_-

I've got 4 of the largest boxes the shops here sell full of books, most of which have been picked up since 2005.
If you are at all interested in the batman group, I can not recommend the Red Robin title enough. Within the first year, he goes toe to toe with Ra's Al Ghul.

I picked up the issue 0 of Blackest Night on free comic book day back in 09 and have heard really good things about it and Brishtest Day. I just haven't picked it up yet. I tend to wait untill the whole series is out and either get in all at once or in the graphic novel form.

I also picked up the preview issue of Kevin Smith's Green Hornet. I'll be honest I haven't liked any of his other comic work, but it seems promising.

The closest shop to me (and CapAm for the most part) is Queen city comics in Fairfeild, Ohio (about a 15 min drive from where JUNE-PWN was) We also frequent the shops out in Dayton, Ohio about once a month aswell.

It tends to be easier that way, it's what I've been doing with The Walking Dead since there's so many issues out.

When it comes to Kevin Smith, you've got to be ready to wait for things to happen. I just read Quiver(his run on Green Arrow a few years back that brought Oliver Queen back to life) and honestly, I liked it. If I had payed per issue as it came out, I probably wouldn't have because the story was just drawn out, but the way I read older stuff, it gave me no problems. Then I read the Batman story he wrote, which is three issues, pretty quick, and I honestly enjoyed it and it's pacing.

As for the boxes, Queen City has the big boxes for about $5, which is what they go for pretty much everywhere.

I was really into what Kevin did in Quiver (huge G.A. fan)
Any more suggestions for when I make my comic run?

Alright, I just did a quick look through my books, and made a list for you of what is good read.

Batman:
Long Halloween. Older story, but it's a detective story, which is what makes some of the best Batman there is.
Hush. If you ask most people, this is the most Batmany Batman story around. It's pretty good, definitely worth a read.
Under the Hood. Not bad, not as good as Hush, but it takes place a few months after, and is a good follow up.
Face the Face. This is the Batman story that starts off the "One Year Later" thing. Batman and kids go away for a year, and they leave Harvey Dent(who is recovered) in control of Gotham. Then they come back and tell him to take a hike. Pretty good story.

Identity Crisis. One of the few events that really works. It's a great mystery story written by a guy that writes mystery novels for a living. Brad Meltzer. Totally worth reading if you like story.

Immortal Iron Fist. It's a funny kung-fu title. I picked it up cheap and really enjoyed it. If you go there, start with "The Last Iron Fist Story." It's the first in this series.

Kingdom Come. This is the story that made me care about DC again. Great story, and awesome art by Alex Ross all the way through.

Sandman. Neil Gaimen is great at his craft, which is showcased in this series. The first graphic is kinda slow, but it's just getting everything in place. I'd recommend trying to borrow it before buying it.

Ultimates 2. The first Ultimates wasn't bad, but the second one was so much better. It might help to read the first, but who knows, you might be alright without.

Y the Last Man. I read for years about how this series rocked, then after it finished I started reading it. No superheroes. Nothing like that. Just a 18 year old kid and his male monkey trying to survive in a world of women. All the men die except for those two and they need to figure out why. Plus everyone woman that sees them wants to kill them or imprison them. Better than it sounds, believe me.

So there's a list for you. Didn't know if you meant older stuff or on the shelf now stuff, so I gave you older stuff.
