I revisit this thread, because I've been trying to push through and into ALL the #1s that came out after Secret War.
And so far, I find much to be ....lacking.
I would say half of them are total crap.
I know I stopped reading about 35 titles after issue #1.
... I"m starting to grudingly make my way through the X books now. I think I'll feel the same.
Yep. Nothing grand in the X-Books to be had. However, and I stand by this 100%, the first 6 or so issues of Uncanny X-Men title are the best of the group. Yes, even with Land art. And doesn't that say something?
Then comes Wolverine. The story is just "okay", but it works for me somehow.
The rest are just there. Comics you read if you're a huge fan of "X" or, like me, someone that has missed them so much that it is worth the time, almost, if it isn't worth the price. But there is nothing exciting going on here. But Marvel had said there weren't going to be anything worthwhile in the "X" books for a good bit ... while they work out that crap with FOX. (Okay, that last FOX statement was me)
I'm not sure I'll stick around with as many books as Perry has, though.
Well, at that time I posted that, I was reading about 40 Marvel that remained after my drops. 5 of those were Star Wars.
But that left about 35 Marvel but yeah, about 40 total. That sounds about right, though I am now, including the Star Wars titles, down to about 30, and most of those I don't read monthly.
And yes, I've enjoyed-6 months behind-Thor, Daredevil, um....crap, it's late, and I'm forgetting things.
This section took me a minute as I am/was trying to list all the books I do read and think about the ones that are worthy of reading. Red are books I know are not for you, or suspect at least, while the others ... I see no reason for you not to enjoy them. But tastes will vary of course. Avengers
- I still read, it's Waid damn it, but yeah, this is bad.
Ant-Man - Spencer's funny, funny book
Black Widow - Which isn't out on MU yet, but you should read it (or look at it as not a lot of dialog)
Captain America - Steve
Captain America - Sam
Dr. Strange - First arc started ... not so great, but finished strong
Hulk - Had to catch up on this after finally being talked into it. Much better than I had thought it would beIron Man - Invincible
- Bendis, so you wont like Iron Man - International
- Bendis, so you wont like
Moon Knight - !!!!! (arc ended horribly, but still worth it)
Nighthawk - Sadly already canceled
Power-Man & Iron Fist
Spider-Man - should be on MU soonSpider-Woman
- funny, though the art will not be for everyone
Ultimates - !!!!Uncanny Inhumans
- Not the All-New Inhumans
Visionand all five of the X books
So, that is about 27 Marvel titles and if you add the Star Wars, I read about 31 over all. Now take out the one Avengers title I read, the Bendis books, Amazing Spidey, Spider-Woman (as I am not sure the art would please your eyes), the Uncanny Inhumans (because you don't want to like that
) and the X books ... all of which I know you don't enjoy, that leaves, not counting the Star Wars books, about 16 Marvel books that I think you COULD enjoy on MU. That's only eleven less books than I read.
Not bad at all considering.
