Once again, some Marvel series are pointlessly canceled/relaunched

Daredevil's current volume is being canceled with the 36th issue, apparently because the editors have decided that "Marvel Now" isn't enough. Now, they're going to start another stunt gimmick called "All-New Marvel Now", and the latest take on Capt. Marvel is among them. The article says:
Waid’s run on Daredevil has been a critical and audience favorite, winning multiple Eisner Awards.
Oh please. With the kind of limp leftist politics Waid forced into the series, combined with low sales numbers around 36,000, it's mighty dumb to claim that. And the Eisner awards have been a joke for years now. It's more than likely they're relaunching in hopes it'll net them some short-term sales spikes for the 1st issues.

I can't be sure if Waid will still be the writer if and when this is relaunched, but if he leaves, it won't be a loss. He's long lost his talents and made a fool of himself with output like this.

So, I am curious. Are there any current writers or comics that you like?

Some of the newer takes on GI Joe by Chuck Dixon are to my liking, plus Larry Hama, who went back to writing some for IDW.

Indeed, they are pretty good comics. IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is supposed to be good as well. I believe one of the original creators, Kevin Eastman is involved with it.

I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
