I hope House of M isn't a flop. Looks promising, but we'll see how it all goes down. I'm definitely not getting all of the tie-in books since it's just another corporate scam. :wink:

Also looking forward to the Ultimate Annuals which will hit in August. And of course the rest of the Ultimate titles.

While I collect a good portion of both Marvel and DC's mainstream titles, I must confess that DC has been rocking my world much more than Marvel lately. I think a large portion of that is because DC editors are working more closely together to form a cohesive universe where stories in one series have consequences/effects in the others. The notable exception is John Byrne's Doom Patrol, but it is so painful to read I'm just pretending like it doesn't exist.

Marvel on the other hand can't decide what to do with their continuity. Their mainstream titles are all over the place, with new number one issues popping up seemingly arbitrarily. Black Panther is a total reboot, but still set in the mainstream Marvel U. Is the previous character's continuity going to be wiped away by House of M? The sad thing is that I don't really care either way. I've been digging Millar's Wolverine, the Ultimates, and Young Avengers, but other than that, the House of Ideas hasn't been wowing me. Astonishing X-Men (hands down the best X-title) has been good, but not great.

Over at DC, I'm enjoying Villains United, the Seven Soldiers (particularly Guardian and Shining Knight), the OMAC Project, Flash, Gotham Central, Green Lantern: Rebirth, JSA, Teen Titans, and Wonder Woman. I will pick up All-Star Batman, but can't say that I really dug Miller's DK2 or Jim Lee's Superman, so I'm feeling more "wait-and-see" than "Heck ya!" Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's AS Superman I am very stoked about, but that's coming out after the summer, so I'll just have to wait. I'm looking forward to Alex Ross's Justice comic as well.

Right now, to my mind, DC is wiping the floor with Marvel.
