> Hey,
> I am looking to maybe get back into Marvel been a bit since I have read anything from them. I had a stint of lack of money and just feeling out picking up more titles again. I am a huge fan of The Darkness and Witchblade and things like those but I also like superhero type stuff as well. Anyway enough rambles from me. What titles would you recommended and why?

My first advice with any recommendation, is to simply try it out. Maybe the best way for you to do this is just go to a Barnes and Noble, and read the first issue of a TPB.

Invincible from Image - Series about a teenage superhero. Great characterizations, new characters galore, and a very established world.

Fables from DC - Series about the characters from various fable stories like The Big Bad Wold and Snow White. Great characterizations, great stories, and a huge main cast.

Ultimate Spider-Man - Series which revamps Spider-Man into modern settings. Just great stories, characterizations, and relationships between the characters.

Captain America - Written by Brubaker, the series really tells great stories with a long standing subplots.

New Avengers - It's become the most important book at Marvel, always leading the way for other titles. It has great characterizations and stories. However, the book ties into a lot of different series, and has a lot of mediocre stories mixed in between the good issues.

Incredible Hercules - Buddy team up book about the adventures between Herc and his genius kid sidekick. The writing is really great here, and has a lot of funny moments.

There are a lot of great stories that you probably missed in the past, which are really just too numeous to mention.
