I like fanboy scripts. Much as I didn't get a lot of the continuity references in JLA vs Avengers Busiek's love for both sets of characters shone through and even made me slightly like the Avengers (in a similar but opposite manner to you I am a DC fan and have never seen the appeal of the Avengers...)
I also got the Wha-Huh book - I also really enjoyed it, even the slightly more barbed comments (like the opening Dreamwave one) that some commentators though a bit over the top. But like JLA vs Avengers there was a lot that I could see I missed, even though it all made at least a little sense.
I'm a big fan of the absolute editions, and I've now got the Planetary and World's Greatest Superheroes (the collection of the oversized Alex Ross painted books) ones, and they are both very pretty.
