A slew of monthlies: Buffy Season 8, Some things from Monica Gallagher who makes web and mini comics, Jack Hawksmoor (the miniseries), Invincible Iron Man (though I'm not a Matt Fraction fan), Angel (a new miniseries) and thats about it for things I HAVE to buy every week. Other than that I pick up graphic novels and weekly issues as the urge for a good story demands.
I hope this doesn't get me kicked out of the group or anything, but I am primarily an action guy. So my fav artists/writers in the hero genre or at least started there (though I do love Gene Yang). Alan Moore (Top Ten), Mark Millar, Grant Morrison (Transmetropolitan), Garth Ennis, Joe Kelly (I loved his Deadpool run years ago, his new stuff, like I Kill Giants, is great too), Joss Whedon, and Marjane Sartrapi, of course. Again, there are tons more, but I'm not really name follower, I just buy things for the stories.
Too Cool to Be Forgotten is the most prominent one that comes to mind. There's a whole bunch of others that I just can't remember.
I took a break for two or three years, but really that was just a break from BUYING comics. I'd still read them from friends or (my BFF of all time) Barnes & Nobles. Really excited to find this meetup. We all gotta get together for another event soon
