What are people's 5 favorite comics currently being released? They don't have to be vertigo, I just put it in this forum because I want to see what vertigo fans have to say.

I'm new to Vertigo but always looking for more good stuff!

1. 100 Bullets
2. Doom Patrol...Morrison's run - although I own the series, I seem to want to wait until the trades are released to read..to delay the gratification I suppose.
5. Planetary...have yet to read #26, so sad to see it end.
Exterminators, Casanova, and Criminal are on my "to buy" list.

Top five, just Vertigo:
1) The Other Side
5) Jack of Fables
DMZ would be a close sixth. Criminal would probably be at #4 if I went beyond Vertigo, and Daredevil would edge out DMZ for #7. Still, the majority of my favorites right now are Vertigo, with the infrequently published All-Star Superman and Ultimates rounding out the top ten.

Ayo's Top 5 currently serialized comic books:
1) Local - (Oni Press) Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly: This is my favorite periodical comic book. It started out with shades of Wood's Demo, but exploded in a different (and very improved!) direction.
2) The Pirates of Coney Island - (Image Comics) Rick Spears and Vasilis Lolos: I slept on this series at first; I was even manning my table at SPX next to Pirates, routinely stepping over Lolos as I came and went, but I'm happy that I woke up (I was caught up before the second issue came out, though)! It's just a lot of fun, the tone is grim, yet strangely lighthearted...it's punk rock, isn't it.
3) Love and Rockets - (Fantagraphics Books) Gilbert and Jamie Hernandez: I actually haven't read any new issues in many months (I might be missing the last two of this quarterly series), but its probably my favorite comic book of all time. It's truly fantastic, if you haven't, you really should.
4) American Virgin - (Vertigo Comics) Steven T. Seagle and Becky Cloonan: Y'all know what this is.
5) Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor (Dark Horse Manga) Masamune Shirow: This is one of my favorite creators of all time, so I was shocked and glorified to see a new comic by him. The second Ghost in the Shell didn't really appeal to me, but I want to go back and give it another chance. If nothing else, read this book for the lushly depicted environments and the almost comical psuedo-intellectual psychobabble!

Right now, I'd have to say:
Dr. Strange: The Oath
Though I've no idea in what order those go.

Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse- Not enough people are reading this book. Every issue's got great laughs. Trade'll be coming out in March.
Written and art by Ben Templesmith.
Ben Templesmith creates an all-eerie and humorous new series. Things are awakening in the city. Things that have a nasty habit of leaving mutilated bodies in their wake and it all reeks of demons and dark gods up to no good. Owing a favor to his lazy ghost cop buddy Trotsky, Wormwood, the gentleman corpse and his oddball entourage are brought in to investigate the case (or at least hopefully not stuff it up too much).
The Nightly News- It had a dynamite first issue. Another title that people need to be reading. Great writing and layouts.
The Nightly News #1 Preview (http://comics.ign.com/articles/742/742307p1.html)
Fell- You can't beat it for $1.99
The Boys- I've gotta say, the pacing in the first four issues was a little wonky. But the fifth, did it for me. The build-up paid off.
The Goon- It's on hiatus, being supplemented with The Goon Noir mini. When that Chinatown graphic novel hits the stands, it'll all be worth it.
