The market is pretty wide spread now, eh? And with Digital not included it doesn't give a complete picture (although they used to say digital was a tiny fraction. I wonder if that's still true? It's all I get)

From the Indies listed: Walking Dead (still the #1 non big two book?), Unity: keep wanting to get into it but don't, Might check out Mercury Heat, Gillen is almost always good. Secret Identities unfortunately ended last week with #7, that was my favorite not Savage Dragon or Invincible indy book. I'm not crazy about anything the Big Two are putting out right now, it's Amazing that Marvel's multi month What If Wars are commanding nearly 40% of the market.

It was so disappointing to see Secret Identities not continue. I agree with you CC, it was my favorite book out there and for me even over Dragon and Invincible. Excellent art and writing/characterization and a great storyline with characters of so much unexplored story potential. It inspired me to pick up Faeber's Noble Causes tpb's and I am glad I have done so. Very enjoyable reading.
I have been getting both Unity and Mercury Heat and I highly recommend both. I'm a fan of Gillen, too. I won't give away any spoilers but when you get a chance and have enough time wednesday thumb through Mercury Heat and see what you think. Very interesting Sci-Fi story with a kick ass lead female character. I like Unity a lot, too as I am rapidly becoming a huge fan of all things published by Valiant. I did a post here about the company and if you have not checked it out, feel free at your leisure.
I don't get the continued loyalty of comic fans with the big two, either, but cannot deny I was that way the last decade and highly unsatisfied. I allowed myself to break out of my repetitive character fascination doldrums with Marvel and branch out to the indie line and am so glad I did. It's fresh, exciting, and the quality seems so much better than the butcher job that's been done to Marvel characters over the last decade (since Civil War).
