After many years of off again on again reading I decide it was about time I got in deep. But as all ways it's kinda daunting when you enter a new world of awesome.

In the last few years I have gotten my grub hands on Scott pilgrim, y the last man, the Jeff lobe series of batman and chew.

Oh and walking dead before it was the tv show.

I have only read them in trades.

I have all ways liked x-men from a distance and deadpool.

I recently started reading invincible and Locke and key.

Can you wonderful people suggest/share where to go next on the comic book train?

    "Ride or Die" confirmed Dominic Toretto, as they took off to find the Dragon Balls in hopes of reviving their friend Sonic

    Cable & Deadpool

    Many of the forumers consider it to be the best Deadpool comic by far

    There are several volumes of Deadpool Classic also available, which covers his first mini-series and most (?) of his original series.

    But C & D is fine for starters if you like, you're not going to miss an awful lot jumping on there.

    The current Deadpool series by Daniel Way is....well....polarizing? Let's leave it at that for now, and stick to C & D and classic first and figure out if you still want more.

    The Annihlation series is considered to be very good by many. I suggest picking up every trade you can find of the new Thor series, its been very well done. Also, Ultimate Spiderman was pretty awesome.

    Sweet Tooth has been pretty good so far. You're already reading Cosmic and Locke and Key so that negates my main recommendations.

    Does Atomic Robo count as "Super Stuff"? Either way, Robo is good too.

    You should look into the current run of X-force, since it has X-men and Deadpool on the team. And because it's great. I think they've started selling the trades.

    Wolverine and the X-men is the other best X-book at the moment and once AvX is over it should be back to it's greatness. Uncanny is good, too.

    You could also get the last few issues of Deadpool, too. It picked again after the "Dead" arc, IMO.

    Also, "Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe" just started this week and the first issue is delightful.

    Cable and Deadpool is also a good run.


    Since you mentioned Ys: The Last Man, you should get BKV's Saga. It's one of my favorites and it's only recently started, up to #5 is all.

    Also get the Hawkeye ongoing. It's going to be good.
