'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
What carabas said. Allegiance to one publisher or another is a fools errand. Buy what you want to read, and don't limit yourself.

Here are some comics that I find enjoyable, regardless of publisher:
Iron Man (this is being relaunched with a new #1 this week, so it's a perfect time to jump on)
Captain America is also being relaunched with a new #1 very soon, as is the Hulk
If you can't go to the trouble of examining your own beliefs before sharing them, then don't whine like a bitch when you're called out on them. - ChadH
There's no reason you need to choose one or the other. You wouldn't decide between novels published by Random House and Doubleday.
Read what interests you.
I see no point in collecting things if you don't enjoy them. Research the titles that interest you on a surface level and go from there.
Also, remember there are a lot of comics worth collecting that aren't Marvel or DC.
Brand loyalty is sub-sentient thinking. Read what you like.

People, Kis isn't a free thinker. Being told what to read is what he likes and what interests him. Just say Batman and move on.
Free your soul and let it fly....
Start collecting Marvel comics because you get more bang for your buck. The MU (Marvel Universe) is truly a shared universe and you'll never be short on reading material because there are so many leads to follow.
Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four are all franchises that you should consider immeadiately (or NOW). That's at least 24 books to choose from to get ya started.
Oh, and I genrally read about half the number of comics.

Hoping the upcoming MOON KNIGHT series will be worthwhile.
Find writers and characters you like. Read them no matter what company happens to publish them.
