I Need Help!

I am looking for a stand alone comic book title that is published monthly.  I don't want a title with a large back issue catalog.  One to two years is okay but any more than that is too much.  I want it to be well written.  I can deal with quirky art, but would prefer good artwork as well.  I would also prefer something widely available as I would love to support my local comic shop. 

Anyone have any suggestions?

Things I have liked in the past:

Generation X- about the first 20 issues

Spawn- the first few years


Supergirl- the Linda Danvers run

Evil Ernie

Marvel Zombies

Age of Apokolips

i love the nightly news. i think it's effin' awesome. but it's definitely not like any of the ones you've listed... so i don't know if you'll like it.

I haven't read any comic books in years, so I have no idea what's out there, unless you want some manga suggestions.

I'd recommend Peter David's Fallen Angel (IDW) or Dynamo 5 (Image).

I will have to research these (read: pick up some copies) and see what sticks.

oh, have you read the runaways? you can pick up the TPBs... i like that one a lot... and joss whedon's taking over for BKV, so it should be pretty awesome. :)

oooh, you know what else is really good? mouse guard.

Yes, MouseGuard is great! The hardcover collection is beautiful and the second mini-series starts up later this year, In fact, I'd highly recommend almost everything Archaia (www.aspcomics.com) publishes.
