Fantastic if only a little too fantastic, DMZ is at its best when it concentrates on the travails of its main character, a reporter embedded deep in the city, experiences the civil wars effects on the city (New York) that straddles the line between the two sides.
The premise of Fables is that characters from old fables are real, immortal and living amongst us in the middle of New York City. Like I said, sounds pat, and cute, and such, and except for the most recent compilation "Wolves" it's a very entertaining, enjoyable collection.
Powers is a remarkable rethinking of the entire superhero-among-us genre. Terrific art, story, pacing and suspense from book to book spanning the entire arc of the series.
Walking Dead is a grim book, bring to the reader a world filled with zombies. Think of it as a companion piece to 28 days later and you won't be far off, it's sad though. Lots of death, as you might imagine.
Y the Last Man is a very strong series detailing a world without men (save one) following a global catastrophe that left only women.
The art style in 30 Days of Night is incredibly creepy and takes a little getting used to. Don't read at night. Don't visit Barrow, AK. This book proves that Vampires can still be frightening.
Think a young adult targeted high-school to college targeted superhero comic and you're pretty much spot on. It's fun enough, and better than no comics at all, but it's a lightweight, for sure. A really fun drawing style, too. Reads like a huge homage to ever superhero ever made.
