Okay, as always, I set my goal too high for me to reach. Could I continue doing this ... fast thoughts review, this way? Sure, but time just alludes me. I need to get back to the comics and I just type soooo damn slooooow. Gonna give you a fast update, but in a way that is less time consuming for me. Yes, I give up, but this new way, hopefully, will be faster for me.
(Note this is only for those restarted titles, and doesn't count any Star Wars titles that may come out)
(Note 2 - JNFM = Just Not For Me. Some titles are good, but JNFM
Issues #1's that I read that either suck or are horrible or are just not for me. We will call this -NOPE - DONE AFTER ONE
(or two in some cases
Black Knight - Saddened me when I read this. Just, no. No for art and writing. No. Again, sadly
Carnage - Just a mini, but still ... no
Contest of Champions - A comic based on a game ... a cell phone game ... no
Drax - Just not interested in this character or creative team enough to support him in his own title
Howling Commandos - Good book for younger readers, I think. I wanted this to work, but JNFM
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur - Another cool book for younger readers or those that think young, but JNFM
New Avengers - NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!
NOVA - sadly, the same ... NO, NO, NO, NO, NO (but with better art)
Silk - Didn't even try. I'm not paying for it and Dave isn't so I don't get to read. No interest. Maybe good?
Spider-Qwen - Tried it. Okay, but don't see the need. Or maybe just don't see the need for me?
Spider-Man 2099 - Damn it, Peter. I want to like this so much, but I just can't get into this damn book.
Star Brand and Nightmask - No desire. Hope this plays off Squirrel Girl well though (same school)
Totally Awesome Hulk - While I am saying JNFM, I don't think this should be for anyone. Maybe I'm too old?
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl - One of the few that's under this banner that I did really enjoy, but JNFM
Uncanny Avengers - Just need to stop this "Avengers" shit and get back to when the name meant something.
Venom: Space Knight - Not bad, better than expected, but ... I'm not sold.
Those #1's that are okay, but not wowing or making me hate them (and thus will probably be dropped)PERHAPS - NEED MORE TIME
ALL-NEW All-Different Avengers - Want to really like this, but not sure. On for a few more. It's Waid!
All-New Hawkeye - Another title I want to like more than I do like. Short leash
Captain America - This one shocks me, but a couple more issues and I may be gone.
Guardians of Infinity - What the hell? Co-written by Abnett. Most of this is crap. Hope not on him. Yuk
Howard the Duck - I keep going back and forth. But down on this now and probably cutting JNFM
Illuminati - Had dropped this, but the ending and Dave got me back to try #2. Better. But still ...
Karnak - Damn it, like the changes but hate the changes. It's Ellis, so on for at least 6 issues
Ms. Marvel - I can honestly see why this book gets the praise it does, but one more issue and I'm gone. JNFM
Red Wolf - Still way too early, but ending made me both mad and curious. At least two more issues.
Scarlet Witch - What I thought Dr. Strange would be in tone. Also on for at least two more issues.
Squadron Supreme - Damn. Not sure I like what happened here. Maybe a twist? Not sure, but like the book?
Ultimates - I'm on for Galactus. Maybe for longer.
Web Warriors - Kinda cool seeing the various Spiders from the various universes. Couple more at least.
And those that are on my pull. Either for being great or for intriguing me (or perhaps out of habit)GOLDEN TITLES
(These are my
Marvel comics. On my pull)
All-New Inhumans - I like this one. Much like New X-Men. More of a team book than the other Inhuman title
All-New Wolverine - Really enjoying X-23 as Wolverine. I even like the costume, I hated on Wolvie, on her
All-New X-Men - Close, but this one makes the cut as I can see where I they are going. I miss X-Men, that helps
Amazing Spider-Man - Only on this to keep up to date. One of the weakest on my pull however
Angela: Queen of Hell - Digging this story and the art. I always lean towards the "B" characters anyway
Astonishing Ant-Man - Just a very funny book. Need this after reading some of my darker creator titles.
Daredevil - One of my favorite "restarts". Art and tone and writing. Nice. In my top 5 Marvel books
Dr. Strange - Not a fan of the direction, a little more "slapstick" than I wanted, but, it's Dr. Strange. Must buy
Extraordinary X-Men - Okay story. Slow, but again, I miss X-Men so much and like the art so yeah, I'm on
Hercules - Yes, slow. Yes, boring. But something ... something here. I dig this. I do!!
Guardians of the Galaxy - I missed the boat last time with Bendis and the Guardians. Enjoying so far
Invincible Iron-Man - Another top 5 book. Yes Peter and Tony kinda switched places, but this is damn fun.
Spider-Woman - Another great comedic title. Strange me liking two "funny" titles, but Ant and this are just great.
Mighty Thor - Another of my top 5 Marvel books. Just a great issue. So emotionally strong
Uncanny Inhumans - I don't care, I like this stuff. Others, not so much. Ha
Vision - Had this as a maybe, until issue #2 hit. WOWZERS. Love this damn title. Another Marvel top 5
Well, that's it so far. As you can see, my Marvel list is large for now, but was happy (sad) to be able to drop the 15 or so books I have, and there will be more I am sure, for I just can't read 30 Marvel titles a month and keep up with the other comics I want to read. Also ... I haven't read Weirdworld issue #1 yet, so not sure where that fits on the scale here.
