I am currently reading all of the infinite crisis minis along with the crossover issues in Action Comics, Adv. of Superman, Superman, Batman, Outsiders, Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, Manhunter, JLA, JSA, and Teen Titans. From DC I am also reading the new GL book. From Marvel, I am getting the House of M books and New Avengers, Young Avengers, Runaways, Punisher, and the other Spider Man books. I also have Darkness, Witchblade, Spawn, 100 Bullets, The Losers, Fables, and Fathom in my pull list. Between the big 2, I have to say that I am enjoying the Infinite Crisis stories much more than the House of M and have gone from a Marvel mark to a DC mark over the last 18 months.
The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.

I was going to skip this one, and I'm sure there's at least one person on this board who will wish I had.

Actually, that wasn't as bad as I thought...but all of the crossover stuff this summer (House of M, Infinite Crisis, Seven Soldiers) is positively killing my wallet. Over time, I'm finding myself slowly converting from a lifelong Marvel loyalist to a DC elitist, too. There's some darn good writers telling some darn good stories there these days.

I had fallen out of comics for a good dozen years or so, so the only thing I'm currently reading religiously is "Ex Machina" - the title that got me back into it, while I'm also ocassionally picking up compilations of stuff I've missed from time to time (generally Marvel's "Ultimate" series and old "Preacher" books.)

I technically dropped out of the comics realm some time back, especially after Mark Waid and Barry Kitson were given a reboot of the Legion of Super-Heroes and one of my long-time loves (the last Legion) was taken away from me.
However... I must say the following two series will be added to my list in the near future:
Infinite Crisis 52*
And depending on what really happens in this One Year Later business, I might be back for good.

My experience probably isn't the one you want, but I'll share it anyway. I taught two classes in the morning, took a class in the afternoon, and spent the evening, 6:30-10:30, in a film studies classroom watching a really bad movie.
