    Loads.

    If you like Kirkman though,then you should read his superhero book Invincible.

    It's pretty fantastic.

    Invincible is very good. I'd recommend it to any fan of the superhero genre, even though it goes through a sort of rollercoaster ride of "I love this" to "this is very, very close to me hating it" (at least from what I've read).

    Scott Pilgrim is pretty great. Not an ongoing, though.

    Valiant Entertainment has several good ones that they just rebooted. Archer & Armstrong, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, and Shadowman.

    Various Dynamite ones like The Shadow, currently written by Garth Ennis. I've really really liked that one, very pulpy, dark, and violent, as well as well written. The Zorro/Lone Ranger ones are not bad, either, though the art isn't as good as in The Shadow. Haven't read the Green Hornet ones but apparently they're going to have them all together in one comic book special soon.

    The Goon by Eric Powell

    Also agree with Baramos on The Shadow

    There's an Alex Ross comic coming out in the next two weeks called Masks which has a team up for The Shadow, The Spider, Green Hornet and Zorro. Sounds great

    Intriguing that such properties did not, by and large, crossover previously.

    2. The Manhattan Projects

    What if the research and development department created to produce the first atomic bomb was a front for a series of other, more unusual, programs?

Welcome to THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, a brand new, ongoing, monthly comic from the creators of THE RED WING.

USAToday calls it an "anxiously anticipated modern thriller…Whodunit? McCann's done it again."
