At the moment I read:

WALKING DEAD - Just a brilliant zombie story, probably the most disturbing comic I've read.
POWERS - Is it cool to diss Bendis yet? this book rocks and he's just brilliant
DEADPOOL and CABLE - Deadpool got me back into comics
POWERS - Epic storytelling

I might start expanding my order soon-ish, been hearing good things about Y: The Last Man.

Current reads: Astonishing X-Men, the new Ghostrider, All Star Batman & Robin, All Star Superman, the new Martian Manhunter, the Transformers titles, Justice, New Justice League, Phoenix: Warsong, and whatever stray comic Pak leaves laying around (I've poked at the Marvel Civil War story arc off and on).

Past reads: Marvel Zombies, Kingdome Come, The Crow, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, V for Vendetta and Watchmen, Elfquest, WE3, Phoenix: Endsong, and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm not thinking of at the moment.

 Pak, you forgot to mention the stuff from Doug Tenaple.

Oh yeah! Tennapel's the man! (Creator of Earthworm Jim, for the gamers out there.) He's got heart and style.

I loves me some Bendis, and I enjoy Powers, but only in trades. When it moved to Icon I picked it up monthly for the first year and now I don't remember a lick of it. Back to trades I go. Same thing with Ultimate Spidey and Daredevil - damn good, but a little too decompressed. Brubaker's DD is a great follow-up - that one I get monthly.Poor Foggy...  ;)

Personally i really liked Bendis's retailing of the origins of Spider-woman. As for the All-Star Line of comics. I really like All-Star Superman especially the first issues with Superman and Lois. But i really dont like All-Star Batman all that well. Its just the batman i know would never slap around Robin or Alfred. Plus i dont know if anyone eles as heard of Ragman. But the 1990 mini-series was just great.

So what's everyone thinking of Civil War, so far? There have been many very shocking moments and we're only 4 issues in. :^)

I like it...but it just seems that almost everyone even including the 'good guys' are acting alittle out of character.

Little of column A, little of column B. It has its humorous elements, but it's also very disturbing at times. :^)

   I thought the whole situation with the Hulk eating tons of people and then turning back into Bruce Banner with tons of people still in him was handled in a really cool way.
