Dark Wolverine – This book is a result of the “Dark Reign” story and it is a bit of a guilty pleasure and Daken is in the running for being one of Marvel’s best villains from the last few years. He is absolutely unlikable, but I can’t bring myself to not read this title. I want to know what he’s up to!
Deadpool – One of Marvel’s best books month after month (as was the Suicide Kings mini). I don’t see why he deserves two extra monthlies (Deadpool Team-Up and Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth) because they don’t even come close to being as good as this book, but whatever.
Dark Avengers & New Avengers – I’ve been loving the “Dark Reign” story that’s been spanning the entire Marvel Universe and these two books are ground zero for it all. I would actually give DA the slight nod as the better book, but you really can’t go wrong with either.
Avengers: The Initiative – This book is action packed and has had a solid run since the beginning, despite the change of writers. It’s really cool to see new characters and B/C/D-list characters get the spotlight in this book. Taskmaster has become of a favorite of mine through this book.
The Punisher: Frank Castle MAX & Punisher – The Punisher: Frank Castle MAX was/is the violent, mature title from Marvel’s MAX line, but I guess it’s called PUNISHERMAX now. The simple title of Punisher is Frank Castle’s exploits with & against other superheroes and supervillains. Either book is great.
Thunderbolts – Kind of Dark Avengers Lite. More C & D-listers, but this is still a fun ride. I just wish it would be more front and center with the rest of “Dark Reign”.
