I think there is a lot right about comics today. It is certainly not the same as it was during my formative years but there is still some really good stuff out there.

Jason Aaron's Thor run is second only to Walt Simonson's.
Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley on Spider-Man is another really good title.
Conan by Jason Aaron is the best I have read since Kurt Busiek's Dark Horse run.
Daredevil has been really good as well.
Gail Simone on Domino is fun
Dan Slot on FF and Iron Man are both growing on me
From DC: This one is harder because I don't like most of their current output.
Shazam! (except for the stupid name change) has been fun.
Justice League Dark, much to my surprise, has been really good.
The Green Lantern is fun for those who are Morrison fans
The Wild Storm by Warren Ellis is an enjoyable re-imagining of the Windstorm universe
Image is where it is at if you are not looking for superhero comics.
Brubaker puts out consistently great stuff for Image.
Johnathan Hickman's East of West is probably my current favorite comic. He has some other great stuff that has run their course, like Manhattan Projects and The Nightly News
Lazarus from Greg Rucka is a great dystopian sci-fi story with phenomenal world building.
Jason Aaron's Southern Bastards is awesome.
Monstress by Marjoie Liu and Sana Takeda is great fantasy stuff
Birthright is also great fantasy
Farmhand is just weird, but a lot of fun.
IDW publishes Walt Simonson's Ragnarok. Simonson on Asgardian myth without rehashing his Marvel Thor run is a treat.
From Avatar, Uber and the current followup Uber: Invasion is a good alternate history of WWII with super-powered soldiers.
From the dying embers of Vertigo I am enjoying the commentary of Trump's America in American Carnage.
I buy most of my comics digitally and the great thing about Comixology is easily finding stuff I missed out on when it came out. For example; Mike Mignolia's Joe Golem isn't new but it's new to me. I also recently discovered Atomic Robo and love it.
