Saw some new Punisher and Spiderman comics in the drug store yesterday and I was wondering how often are new issues published? Are some bi-monthly, monthly, weekly or what?
It has been since 1990 when I was into comics and kept up with them. How are they now and what would any of you recommend?
Not as much stuff coming out now as in 1990. It's hard to say what should be recommended to you without knowing your tastes. But IMO, Punisher is good, X-Force is excellent, New X-Men is pretty good, The Ultimates has gotten off to a good start (on issue 3 now), and Ultimate Spider-Man is good. As for other, non-Marvel stuff, the books that I'm really passionate about are Powers, Hellboy, and Kabuki. Older comics that aren't coming out anymore but should be sampled anyway include Preacher and Astro City (technically Astro City isn't defunct, but it's been on hiatus for a couple of years now due to the writer having health problems). But I'd recommend just finding a good comic shop and taking a look around and seeing if anything appeals to you
