    The only comics I read are SW, therefore it's Dark Horse. ;)

    I'm a Marvel man through and through. Excluding Marvel's infamous Star Wars run, I don't think any publisher has touched Marvel since the 60s.

    They're not overly experimental, so sometimes you do get the old formulae being pressed out, but Marvel's got the best characters IMO. Although without DC there'd probably be no Marvel, Marvel has a much firmer fan base. Despite the fact that Superman and Batman (Both DC) are so universally known, it's the Marvel characters that overwhelm the comic stores and conventions.

    Spidey's my favourite. Got about 2 thousand Spider-Man comics at home in my collection. And about 10 DC comics in total. I don't really read Star Wars comics so I can't speak for Dark Horse.

    I don't like CrossGen at all, but Top Cow's got some great comics - check out Rising Stars and Midnight Nation.

    While I love the DC characters and the DC animated series, when it comes to the actual comics, I'm a Marvel fanboy. Marvel dominates my comic book collection by a large margin.

    When it comes to superheroes, I am a Marvel Zombie. The only DC hero that I follow is Batman. When I look for well writen nonsuperhero stories, it is hard to beat the great books in DC's Vertigo line and the Sin City books from Dark Horse (Frank Miller is a comics god.) Dark Horse also publishes the Star Wars comics and a good deal of manga, so I am always buying books that they are publishing. With such an eclectic taste in comics, it is hard to choose one single publisher as a favorite.

    It's gotta be either Marvel, Top Cow or Image(although I dunno if those two count as the same, can't remember)
    but you've also gotta have dark horse in there for good measure cos of star wars.

    I mostly only read SW comics, so I guess I would go with Dark Horse.

    When I used to read comics it was almost strictly Marvel, so I'll go with them.

    I vote Dark Horse because their Japanese manga translations are pretty good.
