Last year I was only going to my local comics shop once a month (maybe) and was completely bored with my collection and the state of comics itself until January 2012. I was already reading/collecting Blue Estate, Butcher Baker, Invincible, and The Walking dead but then Fatale and Saga were announced. Long story short, now my comic collection is the most diverse it's ever been in 30 plus years (I'm old) and I can't wait to go to my local comics shop every Wednesday to peep a new (or current) Image title.
Amen to that. I'd actually stopped reading comics altogether until last year. Green Wake, Blue Estate, Butcher Baker and a few others really pulled me back in after wanting nothing to with DC/Marvel. Now my pull list is entirely Image/Oni/IDW/indie with exception of Wonder Woman and Voodoo from DC. Atomic Robo, Panzefaust, Grim Leaper, Glory, Prophet, Cobra, Smoke & Mirrors, No Place Like Home, DB Cooper, Morning Glories, Rebel Blood, ToT, Chew and others.
Its crazy how the comic landscape really changed in the last few years. It really drew me back into the comics world after a VERY long hiatus.
