I saw this tweet from Sandy Parker on my Twitter feed and thought it was a great idea to riff on quickly.
Added #MULTIVERSITY to pull list. LCG asked Pull all Morrison? Interesting question. No. My auto-pulls: Quitely, Aja, M Martin, and D Cooke.

Currently, my comicbook creator auto-pulls are Grant Morrison, George Perez (interiors, covers, etc), Emma Rios, Paul Pope and Keith Giffen. I’ll give any Jonathan Hickman first issue a try. And Frank Quitely just because his work is few and far between at times.
I also have auto-pulls when it comes to characters: Amethyst, Ambush Bug, Legion of Super-Heroes, Vibe, Captain Comet and Titans. I can’t put Nightwing down on the list – I get his series, but if it’s a random appearance in another title, I usually don’t jump on it like I might have in the past.
Storywise, I’m willing to give most cosmic stories a chance: especially if it plays within the established DC or Marvel Cosmology. Or if the sci-fi genre is played with, such as titles like Saga or the upcoming Deep Gravity from Dark Horse. And of course, any and everything that has to do with the Crisis.
What about you? What are your comicbook auto-pulls?

Very cool question, Pete.
I’ve cut waaaaay back in recent years – for a number of reasons, primarily financial – so my auto-pulls have dwindled considerably. But, for me:
CREATORS – Alan Moore, Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez, Scott Morse, and Frank Santoro.
CURRENT SERIES – single issues: The Fade Out, Velvet, Queen & Country (if it returns, as Rucka states it will); collections: Stumptown, Finder
Used to be George Perez was on that top list, but the story has to hook me as well, now, or I’ll give it a pass. But I’ll still check out any new Perez book (interiors) and I’ll also see what Jonathan Hickman, Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, and Paul Pope are doing whenever new work from them drops.
And Michael DeForge. All new Michael DeForge. I was reminded of him when it came across my twitter feed that he is trying out patreon, and I hopped over to sign up and get a new comic each month from him. Here’s the link: http://www.patreon.com/michaeldeforge
