Eventually my tastes matured to things like Cerebus and Hate. If you've never heard of Cerebus, it's 300 issues chronicling of the life of a Conan-like Aardvark. Very smart, snappy, and intelligent. I still read those from time to time. I would whole-heartedly recommend that one to anyone who enjoys good reading.
Lately I was lured back into a comic book store to pick up the Dark Tower comic books- they're quite good. However, I've lost the enchantment I used to have as a kid. I just see thin books with pictures that are ridiculously overpriced when I look at them now. I don't understand the passion people still have for collecting them, although I still enjoy reading them from time to time.
The exception are the classic comic books. I have a huge run of Amazing Spider Man, old X-Men, Iron Man, Wolverine... the good stuff. Looking at those classic oldies still evoke feelings of joy in my heart.
