I understand where you are coming from in the emotionally attached department, AC. For me its the Valiant Universe. They've built a connected universe of fascinating heroes and villains.
My favorites from Valiant are Ninjak and the Eternal Warrior, but, I am buying most everything they put on the shelves. Bloodshot, XO Manowar, Rai, Imperium, Archer and Armstrong and eagerly await new material from Quantum and Woody. I've been buying up trades to catch up the back stories of all these characters as time and money permits. Action, intrigue, mystery, humor, this universe has it all with great emotional depth and stability with their individual characterizations.
East of West
Vampirella's latest series
Army of Darkness (love the character of Ash Williams)
Gold Key Alliance
Jim Butchers Dresden Files
And some other great books out there I enjoy are:
Afterlife with Archie
Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose
There's probably a few I am forgetting, too.
Its a lot of money Marvel is not getting from me anymore. The quality and characterization just is not good enough for my expectations and past experience with that company. I do pick up an occasional Marvel book when it features a member of the Fantastic Four. That's about it.
There are a lot of good books from the indie scene that promote a vast variety of different types of stories that are exciting and fun to read. Its been fun searching them out and getting emotionally invested. Its a great feeling and I'm glad they are out there and that I've given them a try. Its a brand new rush that I cannot capture with Marvel anymore.
