I can vouch for these 4.
Only read the first issue or two of Insufferable and Letter 44, but they were okay, but I made it to issue 23 or 24 of The Woods before needing a break and Ranarok is .. well come on... Simonson on Thor again? Pah-Lease

Okay, as I only read about two comics last week, I am going to do better this week and I guess I need some listings to help the motivation.
 Cheesy

At the top of the list is that Dark Days: The Forge, a precursor to DC's Metal event, first one I read today when I get to the shop. Other than that, I think I have a few good choices to get to, or not.
 Grin Cheesy
(Capital letters are my main focus. Unless I get sidetracked  Cheesy)

DARK DAYS: THE FORGE #1
New Super-Man #12 - Glad to see the new artist is one I like. Means I can stay on this title!
Titans #12 - Back on as long as Both is gone (can someone write that as a lyric?  Cheesy)
added because I saw it  Grin - Legion of Super Heroes / Bugs Bunny Special #1

DEFENDERS #1
SECRET EMPIRE #4
SECRET EMPIRE: UNITED #1
SECRET EMPIRE: BRAVE NEW WORLD #1

Captain America (Sam) #23
Thanos #8
Uncanny Avengers #24
X-Men: Blue

RAI: HISTORY OF THE VALIANT UNIVERSE
SOVEREIGNS #0 -
SOVEREIGNS #1 -
SOVEREIGNS #2 -
MAGNUS #1 - Can Dynamite get me with these two non-James Bond titles? Time to find out!
Babyteeth #1 - From last week, new Donny Cates (God Country), hopefully I can find a copy today
Kill the Minotaur #1
Regression #2

And some books that came out yesterday that I will no longer read. At least for now  Cheesy -
Action Comics #981
Red Hood #11
Generation X #3
Wolverine #21

Your three for three so far. I liked Letter 44, Insufferable, and Ragnarok well enough to add the 2nd issues to my wish list.  I haven't gotten to the Woods yet but odds are in your favor so far.  Also, I added those three without looking back at your quote so I had no idea you had liked those too.

Well that just means you won't like the Woods. I have never batted 1000
 Cheesy
The colors are real vibrant for the Woods so be prepared for that, along with some art that was good, but may not be everyone's cup o'tea as it were.
Still, a cool sci-fi story that I am surprised is still going (as I think it could have been shorter (not knowing the end goal of course)

Also, :

Ninjak vol 4- dug it. Really liked it.
Bloodshot Reborn vol 3- always, man, do I feel for the guy! I just had to go and order some more Valiant trades and try to get closer to getting as caught up as I can

Green Valley 9- finished. I say thank you. I say 'no thank you, I'm full, I don't think I could go for any more.'

Superman 24 - I can always go for
Manchester Black showing up!

Unworthy Thor 2 -oh yeah, I will have so much awesome Aaron Thor issues to read once all are collected!
Mighty Thor 13 - keep it coming on Thor, Aaron!
Dr. Strange 14- A Dr. Strange comic is leaving me as much as the warm fuzzies I had for the movie.
Star Wars 25 - thanks for the comics, but I think I'm just done with Marvel SW comics.
Cable & Deadpool 5-7 - because of the movie (still), I'm continuing to track the character through his publication reading history, and I'm now on this volume. And for some dumb reason, I love Cable.
Ultimates2 #1-still so onboard for this title. I wish Ewing would bring back Genis Vell somehow!!
Totally Awesome Hulk 12 - still enjoyable to read. Good to read how the Hulk manifests with Cho.

Green Valley 9- finished.

I still have to read the last three issues. It lost steam for me a little, but then again, I have been a little off-kilter lately so maybe it wasn't just the book? Who knows? Plan on getting back to it soon though

Dr. Strange 14- A Dr. Strange comic is leaving me as much as the warm fuzzies I had for the movie.

I was going to jump off after Aaron left, but I love the look of the new art, so I am staying on. And hopefully when issues #20 and #21 hit digitally for you guys, they will be in order. Not released in the opposite like they just were on the stands. Although it was a new story and creative team, that was still stupid.

No, I think it was just the book (Green Valley, that is).

Also,

Action 981 (hope that's the right number) -didn't 'see' that ending coming!!!
Wonder Woman 24 -aw, one more issue. Sad  Really REALLY need to reread this in all one sitting!
Wonder woman annual 1 -okay, the movie and Rucka got me to pay $4.99 for this issue. Mostly cute and sweet; Rucka's Trinity meeting was worth it for the price alone for Supes' reaction
to Batman saying his truename was 'Batman' under lasso influence! and Superman going "Wait, what, really?" lol

The Woods only kind of interested me. But enough to add issue 2 to my reading list (especially since the first 4 issues are free on ComiXology Unlimited).  So technically your 4 for 4 Perry!  I also enjoyed Winterworld and added that to my Wish List.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy Werewolves of Montpellier but it surprised me and was a fun a little read.  Actually a nice break from my normal reading.
