    What comics are you reading (that are not Alpha Flight related), that you enjoy and why do you enjoy them?

    Rat Queens - fantasy roleplaying at its hilarious bestest!

    Captain Midnight - fish out of water, time traveling, 1940's super intelligent inventor and war hero gets sucked into modern times.

    Seconding Rat Queens, so much fun.

    IDW's Ghostbusters ongoing, ending this month, was absolute gold from start to finish. First tie-in/adaptation/whatever to ever capture the feel of the film, and that's counting Ghostbusters II.

    The Wicked + The Divine just started, but I'm digging it so far, though I think most of my enjoyment comes from dissecting each issue with my friends after the fact. Gods as pop icons!

    Afterlife with Archie: The best horror book to be published in years, full stop. Yes, really. YES. REALLY. ARCHIE. Moody and gorgeous and scary as hell.

    I really couldn't get into the first issue of Rat Queens. I may give it a go further down the line.

    I've recently cut my pull-list down massively, mostly relying on MCU for my Marvel Fix.

    It currently stands as:

    • Amazing X-Men - For Northstar
    • Avengers and X-Men: Axis - I do actually enjoy a good Marvel Event. None of the crossovers though
    • Gotham by Midnight - Ben Templesmith art <3
    • POP - The concept really intrigues me, plus art by Alpha-fan and all round good guy Jason Copland
    • Prophet - Classic old skool heavy metal style pulp science fiction, this surprised me a lot considering I wanted nothing to do with something based on Liefeld era image.
    • Saga - I absolutely adore everything about this
    • Squidder - Again, Ben Templesmith art
    • Uncanny Avengers - I quite enjoy the combination of Avengers & X-Men, plus the continued plot-threads from Uncanny X-Force(I)
    • The Wicked + The Divine - Anything by Gillen + McKelvie together is an absolute must for me. Such a great team. I love the pop references and McKelvie's artwork is stunning. I love his sense of design.
    • Zero - I enjoy the fact that every issue has a different artist, plus the graphic design on the covers is great.

    Figment; a nice new Disney story; a scientist unlocks a door with the key of the imagination.
    Avatar: The Last Airbender: ongoing series, based on the cartoon. Really captures the feel well.
    Hinterkind: A bit dark and nasty, (so those of you who enjoy that will probably like it!), but still a good idea. The modern world after the fairy-tale apocalypse.
    Nova: Just a really enjoyable series; the main run has been good, even the crossovers. (I'm not counting 'specials' here.)
    Amazing X-Men and Nightcrawler; I don't want to be reading X-Men, I really don't, but these have been fun! (Okay, they're getting a little away from the 'not Alpha-related' category, but that's not why I buy them.)
