I'll be heading to the comic shop tomorrow to pick up the new issue of "the Star Wars" and plan on signing up for more. I already get the walking dead in digital so I'll probably sign up to get physical forms of those. Also going to get batman: lil Gotham for the kid.

Recommend me more monthly issues I should subscribe to. What are the thoughts on the spectacular Spider-Man or the amazing Spider-Man.

I'm not up to date on comics anymore so I can't comment on current runs, but if you haven't read Preacher you should check out those graphic novels.

I only have "ultimate spider man" (tpb). I like those. I also have some "avenging spider man" and "peter parker, spider man". But I prefer "ultimate spiderman", because I like the drawing style. It's "clear". If you know what I mean by that.
In "later" issues lots of those super hero comics tend to be a mix of 25 different villains and 25 different heroes who team up. I prefer earlier issues. One hero. One villain. Nothing too complicated ;-)
What I've read about "sensation spider man" is mostly positive, so I'd give it a try.

Mark Bagley is my favorite penciller. I liked his work on ASM in the 90s better than his USM stuff though. I had him sign a copy of ASM 361 (Carnage 1st appearance) a few years back at a comic con.

There are about fourteen Batman related monthlys, so unless you wanna spend a lot read Batman shit via graphic novels or digital.
Green Lantern(The other Green Lantern related monthlys are "ok" at best.) and Flash are my suggestions.

The IDW published GI Joe series is really good. It's not the cartoonish, aimed for kids, type of thing that may spring to mind if you aren't one to have followed the Marvel comics. This is consistently violent, anyone can die at any time (unlike the old series where you almost never saw that happen). Action, espionage, etc. It's worth checking out.

Btw, this does NOT mean the "A Real American Hero" series, as this is a continuation of the Marvel series. The new GI Joe is a reboot, but IDW publishes both.

IDW grabs right to publish anything. If it was a popular cartoon, movie or show in the eighties then they're about it.

I was just the right age to check a lot of the Venom storylines as they were coming out. Bagley's Venom will always be the definitive Venom.
