Dark Horse...I tend just to read SW comics nowadays.
I prefer Marvel, with Dark Horse a close second. Marvel is darker and more serious than some. Besides, without Marvel, we'd have no Hulk, no Spiderman, no Punisher, no Fantastic Four, no X-Men, no Iron Man, no Daredevil, and for you yankees, no Captain America.
So pretty much every big comic character is a creation of Marvel. Like I said, Dark Horse is a close second. Don't kill me.
TMNT is some good stuff, but I've always loved batman, and always will.
I've always tended to lean towards Marvel.
But lately DC have really improved since they finished that Infinity Crisis rubbish. With Grant Morrison doing All-Star Superman and Batman (just Batman) they have become must reads.
The Marvel Civil War is amusing though. A big improvement from last years crappy House of M (that pretty much reset Morrisons work on X-Men...but did create the New Avengers)
Marvel have the best overall selection (and the current cross-thread Civil War storyline is pretty cool), and Dark Horse is Star Wars so comes in a very close second

I was a huge Spider-Man collector about 15-20 years ago, so I wasn't all too happy when they started screwing up the tale I had grown to love. In my eyes, pretty much everything after Amazing Spider-Man #328 is garbage.
328 ended the "Cosmic" story arc. After that they went crazy with clones, Ben Reilly, Aunt May death hoax, and Parker's love affair with Tony Stark - leading to him unmasking himself. I knew it was all going downhill when Kraven killed himself.
The funniest thing I've read about this Civil War was Jameson filing a lawsuit against Parker.
I was - and still am to some degree - a hardcore fan of the pre-ASM#328 Spider-Man universe. I used to know every little fact, factoid, character, cameo, crossover and reference. I'm kind of obsessive like that.
They pretty much wrote off the whole clones thing. It's not that its out of the Spiderman canon but it's never mentioned.
I picked DC for Watchmen, Sandman, and of course V for Vendetta, which is a totaly awesome flick and an even better read.
I'd have to say Marvel, but I don't mind Dark Horse either, there both good.
Dark Horse...not just for the SW comics...but all their comics rule
Dark Horse are too dependant on licences
even so, the way they draw and colour, perfect.
