I used to collect X-Men and X-Force comics back in the early 90's. I still love to read The X-Cutioners Song crossover.

My Uncle gave me a heap of comics a few years bach. One was an X-Men comic from like the 60's or 70's. It was an american release in mint condition but because the original store owner wrote .65c in big black texta across the front it was worth FA

Still have some stuff for sale. Free pickup at Parra Fair

Just read the Wolverine: Old Man Logan 1st issue. Really great start.

Also in a hurry before and missed some more favourite finite series...

I'm waiting for the first trade of Peter David's run (I think the hardcover is out but I can wait a few months for the cheaper softcover) but yes Slott's run was great - one of the books I really looked forward to each time it came out.

I've never been a fan of Captain America, but I borrowed Winter Solider #1 and then went out and bought the next three trades because I loved it so much. I've really enjoyed it.

I always felt that comics have had a major influence on my life, idealogy and other such intangibles.

Probably from a very young age....

It would take me ages to compile a list considering I download and read so many each week.

But some more lesser known titles that I would recommend.

Grimm Fairy Tales (modern day re-tellings with a twist on traditional fairy tales ... and big boobs)
Hack/Slash (great little horror/slasher book)
Witchblade (absoloutely LOVE the artwork)
Un-Men (hard to describe, just check it out)
Tarot - Witch of the Black Rose (mature readers only. Stories are so so, artwork is great, mostly because of the nudity )
Iron and the Maiden (it was a mini-series that featured some amazing art deco inspired art work and a great story to boot.)

Currently enjoying Secret Invasion, though this month seems to be stalling. But no where near as stalled as Final Crisis. That's a story that needs to seriously pick it's game or it will be overshadowed by Batman R.I.P.

And i'd have to say my pick of DC Comics would be Green Lantern Corps. Can't wait for the blackest night storyline that's coming up.

Marvel wise, absoloutely loving Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy (speaking of which, Annihilation and Annihilation:Conquest, great reads) and can't wait for SI to hit those books.

I am loving some of the Marvel events recently, especially the civil war.
I also like the IDW Transformers series. It has some good plots and the books are great. I'm not a fan of buying individual comics though, I am usually patient and wait for the trade paper back.
