Well, to each his own, I suppose. I'm really looking foreward to the Kirkman run on Captain America. It's Captain America doing Captian America things, like fighting supervillains. Kirkman's running Cap up against Red Skull, Batroc, and the Serpent Society, which were all reasons I got into comics all those years ago. So, like I said, to each his own. But I'm not going to shed any tears over Cap staying out of the halls of power and on the streets kicking ass.
On topic - yeah, it can be an expensive habit :). But, as long as you enjoy it, I suppose it is OK. Trades are a good way to go, and can be cheaper in the long run - it just sucks having to wait six months between arcs for me.

If you're into the retro thing, here's a couple recommendations.
Dreamwave has been putting out new Transformers titles for a couple years now. Probably the best of the bunch has been the two War Within mini-series going back to pre-Earth stories. The character designs are excellent, as is the rest of the current lineup, actually.
I've also been enjoying the Devil's Due GI-Joe books. Again, great artwork and well told stories (especially a 3 issue arc from last year with Zartan's daughter, Zana).
I'm also reading the new Voltron and He-Man titles, but definitely flip through them first.
