Title: Reading List - 6/22/2015
Post by: Jeff on June 22, 2015, 07:58:23 PM
I'm trying to read more or less in publication order for the comics in my list.  Sometimes I'll go ahead and read two or three of the same title in a row.  The app let's you download 12 issues at a time for offline reading so I thought it would be fun to list out what I'm reading.

And yes....I'm still in 2013!

Reading this week:

Fearless Defenders #2
Fearless Defenders #3
Wolverine & the X-Men #28
Superior Spider-man #9
Fearless Defenders #4
Wolverine & the X-Men #29
Daredevil #26 (2011 run)
Superior Spider-Man #10
Captain America #7 (Remeder's 1st run)
Wolverine & the X-Men #30
X-Men #1 (2013 run)
Fearless Defenders #5

This gets me through May 2013.

That's a pretty fun run if I remember right.  Lots of funny and cool stuff.

i have a long list of back-issue i want to read and i kind of squandered the first couple yrs of my sub because i didnt have a tablet and really didnt enjoy reading on the pc. i read some books i had dropped but didnt really get in the swing of reading new monthlies until the last yr or so...currently i read almost everything that comes out that i'm interested in and even some that i'm not or have lost interest since starting.  I still get around 12 books a month in paper format the resat are digital and growing due to Secret Wars (reading the prime book and a few satalites) ANADM and a $4 tag on even the most fringe title.
Here's the list from what been released so far (release dates in Dec2014)
Inhumans #9-10...enjoying this so far tho a bit disjointed at times
Iron Fist #7...GREAT book
Hulk #9...this has been surpisingly good
Thanos v Hulk #1...meh
Axis: Revolutions #3-4...ok but its a limited so i can put up with it
Death of Wolverine: WeaponX #3-4...these have been interesting if not predictable
Guardians 3000 #3...not bad will follow for a bit longer
Star-Lord #6...i'll keep reading this one too for no other reason than kitty pryde appearances
Angela #1...off to a decent start
X-Force #13....almost over but a weird title from start to finish
Rocket Racoon #6...silly fun
Avengers World #16...this ones pretty good
Death of Wolverine: Legacy #6...more wolverine stuff but decent
Punisher# 13...had given up on him yrs ago but since its basically free, why not.  not to bad either
Uncanny X-Men Annual #1
Avengers #39 ...5 mo TRO...this is heating up nicely
All-New Ultimates #11...ugh...all done with this
GotG Annual #1...meh
Amaz Spider-Man Annual #1...decent but a bit silly
Axis: Carnage #3...this was pretty good considering hes pretty 1 dimension
Spider-Man and the X-Men #1...this was fun but the x-men came off as racist
Thor #3...good start to this title
Captain Marvel #10...Great book
Electra #9...this is really good too
Ultimate S-M #8...why not and peters back from the dead
Axis: Hobgoblin #3...see Carnage
Fantastic Four #14...enjoying Robinsons run
All-New Capt A #2...Axis crossover with evil Sam...hard to swallow
Avengers Now #1?
Black Widow #13...this has been a lot of fun
Storm #6...liking this one too
Ms Marvel #10...Great fun book with very much a early S-M vibe
Spider-Woman #2...not bad for part of a crossover
She-Hulk #11...this has been good
Cyclops #8...father and son is space...how can i pass that up
Capt A & the Avengers #9...see all new cap. not buying Luke as an aragant fool
Invaders #13...this has been good too....more robinson
Secret Avengers #10...this ones a bit twisted but ok....likes the last run better
Superior Foes #17...last issue will miss this title
New Avengers #27...time is running out and the deck is stacked
New Warriors #12...last issue not a bad run by Yost...read mostly for Kaine
Deathlok #2...good start nothing spectacular
AN Ghost Rider# 9....keep reading even tho i'm not sold and the art is not my cup of tea...i'll give it another month
Magneto #12...more Axis stuff
Silver Surfer #7...very strange and not your typical SS series/characterization

So Wringer, you enjoying SW also? Just to double check, have you read Thors?  :)

And your list is almost as bad as mine. At least you are having time to read yours.  :D

i've read the 1st 3 issues of the prime title and enjoying it immensely.  my problem is i keep reading MU titles and have neglecting my physical books...about a month and a half behind on those.  I did pick up a couple of the tie ins (armor wars, renew vows and a few others) but dont think i picked up Thors...i'll read that in 6mo :)

by the time of the relaunch i hope to be down to only a few physical books...the ones i've been collecting the longest and just cant let go....Amazing S-M, IronMan, Uncanny X and anything written by Peter David or staring Moon Knight...everything else i can wait on.

Your list has a lot of the things I have in My Library.  How are all of those Post-Death of Wolverine titles?

Kinda surprised you're still hanging in with that Defenders title, Jeff. I wanted to like that so badly but just couldn't

i have the defenders on my "something i think i might read someday list" but haven;t gotten around to yet.

Wolverine stuff is ok, nothing earth shaking and very glad i didn't buy it...but for on-line books that is not costing me anything (read my $70 worth of stuff i liked within a month or so of renewal) its not bad.  thing is death means nothing and we all know this is really filler until logan comes back in a yr or so.  i hoping the new wolverine book post SW with Laura will be good as i have mostly enjoyed that character.  Creed/Mystique/Daken are pretty thin and their motivations are all over the map over the past few years....especially Raven.

You might be thinking of a different run?  This is by Cullen Bunn and has an all female cast.

Good to know, Wringer.  I agree that these "ok" titles are a lot easier to read when it doesn't cost anything.
