Evening Reading

Since playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds for review [Read it here!] and battling heroes and villains in DC Universe Online [Read the Field Report!] I've really been interested in revisiting the comic book franchises these games are connected to.

Other than Walking Dead volumes and reading Y: The Last Man from start to finish again, I haven't paid a lot of attention to the world of comics. When it comes to these super hero/villain franchises, where do I even start?

I mean this in the sense of the last half decade, so there's no need to throw me recommendations to read Batman: Year One. In recent history, what comic books have captured your attention? I did get that free one month of Marvel's digital subscription when I bought my own copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Any recommendations?

One important thing: Make sure to read this Chatty thread where we reveal some actual details for something I have affectionately coined NewShackCity.
