Honestly, for me, it usually depends on the writers and what I am in a mood for. So I guess a little mix of both.

It really depends on the writers for me. A bad writer can make me drop a run even if I really enjoy that character.

I generally tend to prefer DC. I prefer their more classic take on heroes than Marvel's somewhat more "realistic" and modern one. But there are things more Marvel that I like as well.

Hmmmm good question. I like both fairly equally so I tend to follow the writer more when it comes down to making a decision on what to read BUT if I had to pick between the 2 universes I’d probably pick the DCU.

I used to prefer Marvel a couple years ago but recently I've been leaning more towards DC. I love both about equally overall, I think I even own roughly the same number of trades for both publishers.

That's the thing, a lot of people will be stuck in the middle because of both Marvel and DC have good stories. I struggled with this question a lot too. Don't get me started with the AU issues.

Looking back at my history of interests in both companies' stories and characters I would say that I have equal love for both publishers. I have my moments when I prefer Marvel and moments in which I prefer DC. It really depends in what type of mood I am in.

On writer though they can disappoint sometimes but they're so important for example after all that crap that Jason Aaron left behind with Thor I'm not even thinking about avengers let alone reading them.

Mostly DC. With Marvel I only really like The Punisher, Fantastic Four, and X-Men comics. However, I've been reading less of both recently.
