I haven't read any comics regularly since I was a kid, but I've been jonesing to get back into one for years. Help me out, GWJ comic book hipsters.
I read a couple of issues of Hellboy several years back, and liked that quite a bit. My friends and I also watched the Spawn HBO show and were mightily impressed by it. As a youngster, I read Amazing Spider-man, Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor and Groo the Wanderer.
I'd like something intelligent; I don't mind a lot of reading with my art. I fear not sci-fi or any other genre. Whatever suggestions (with explanatory remarks) are welcome. I'd prefer something that has back issues in trade paperback form so I can get caught up.
Thanks in advance, guys and girls.
