"It's not always easy figuring out what comics to read each month. Regardless of how much (or little) you know about the medium it can be pretty time-consuming to comb through the myriad publishers, genres and releases to decide what you want. So let's keep it simple: If you're only going to pick up a couple of titles each month, here are a handful that are worth your time and money. Not every comic is for every reader, so I'll do my best to give you a sense of whether they're up your alley. Of course, there's absolutely no way to cover every comic, so consider this a monthly sampler — and leave your own suggestions in the comments

Given that Daredevil made the list I'm pretty skeptical about the rest of the choices. I've been reading the Daredevil series from about issue 11 to the end at 36 and it has been terrible.
I read Daredevil way back when I collected comics, pretty much the whole time. From the old series I'd guess it was from about issue 230 something to well after issue 300. None of those story arcs were as bad as the best that the new series has done.
My biggest complaint about the book is the reliance of Daredevil on the Avengers, specifically Hank Pym. Every time Matt gets into something too deep he just activates his Avengers signal and they come and bail him out.
It just doesn't have the feel of being a street level vigilante book anymore and that is what I liked about Daredevil.
I'll admit that there is some justice to the claim that Daredevil is a super hero, after all, and should be interacting in a super hero world and did much more so earlier on in his career.
Still it seems that there is room for a hero in between Captain America and Punisher. Someone who still acts like a hero but doesn't get involved in the mega-powered super hero world very often.

I agree with Pictors.. I gave up on Daredevil.
For good reads try:
1)New Batman 52
2)Suicide Squad 52
4) Locke and Key
5) Peter Panzefaust
Ok, those are a little off beat, but still good
