    Current Image reads for me:

    Saga: Fun, interesting sci fi story with great characters.

    Fatale: Great noir crime story based in the occult.

    Haunt: kind of a crazy story between two dysfunctional brothers, one of them is dead, involved in a high stakes espionage plot

    Storm Dogs: sci fi murder mystery on a backward planet

    Witchblade: private eye who has been given an artifact that makes her a bad ass and it is part of a larger, somewhat convoluted story. But the episodes are good.

    These appear to be on hiatus and hopefully are coming back:

    No Place Like Home: a girl visits home in Kansas only to find herself int he middle of a crazy curse visited upon the town by flying monkeys.

    Alpha Girl: a weird teen girl ends up in a zombie apocalypse that affects women. She somehow escapes being infected

    Thinking of jumping on:
    Hoax Hunters and Mind the Gap
    Current Favorites: The Goon, Batgirl, Chew, Alex + Ada,The Sixth Gun, Saga, Diskordia, Think Tank, Archie, Rachel Rising, Red Sonja, X, Wonder Woman, Powerpuff Girls, Ms. Marvel

    All excellent recommendations, correctly listed in alphabetical order. I would also add:

    Bedlam
    The Manhattan Projects

    How come the fuck no one mentionned ELEPHANTMEN ? By far one of the best book not only from image but all publishers combined. You guys should be ahsamed of yourself. Hondobrode, if you don't give that book a try I will hunt you down and kick you in the nuts, so get cooking.

    I was about to jump on this thread, and since Hoax Hunters was mentioned, seems like an opportune time. So...

    I'm the creator/writer of the book, so my stumping is, you know, expected. But, the book has gotten amazing reviews (http://hoaxhunterscomic.blogspot.com...-round-up.html). If you're unfamiliar, the book is essentially X-Files meets Mythbusters. Members of a reality show, called Hoax Hunters, go out into the world disproving the existence of monsters, aliens, etc, on their show. But, really, all those things exist and it's the job of the Hoax Hunters to deal with them and cover it up. It has humor, horror, and probably the coolest character in comics: Murder, who is an astronaut suit filled with crows (explained in issue #0).

    Give it a shot!

    Wow, I forgot all about CHEW. That is one of my favorite books and is a brilliant example of a writer and artist taking an off beat subject and using funny, well paced story telling and art that perfectly accentuates the story to create something new, creative, and highly entertaining.

    Go for Hoax hunters and 'It girl and the atomics'
