So recently I decided I was going to finally make the dive and read some comics. I am starting with both of Top Cow's Witch Blade (read up to issue 20) and The Darkness (read up to issue 12, and the PITT cross overs). I love both of those so far and ordered some HC Trades/Compendiums of both series, along with the Spawn Origin HC trades, which is a character I have always loved (seen the crappy movie along with the entire HBO series). I am just trying to plan on what to read next after I am done reading these. I really like the Darker/Adult themes these books share, in fact I seem to have a hard time enjoying the less mature comics. So far I much prefer Image/top cow writing to the more popular DC and Marvel Comics granted I have only read random comics.
Any suggestions? I am thinking of escaping the realm of Invincible powers that Spawn, The Darkness, and Witchblade share, but I would not object from reading more god-like characters. I also prefer comics that are collected in easy to find trades. Since I am not a hardcore collector or anything, it makes my life easier to read a bunch of comics like a graphic novel or just a regular book. I really liked PITT in the Darkness crossover, but the series was short lived and I have no idea how difficult it is to find them.
