OH BOY !!
More judging. Where I climb up on my high-horse and tell you what I thought about what you are getting ready to read ... someday
 Cheesy

Added to MU this week.
Marvel Unlimited
Darth Vader 19

Just a great series. Shouldn't have even copy and paste this. You know this is good  Cheesy

Moon Knight 1

 Grin Oh yeah. You may want to wait to read this until you get ... about 2 more issues. You are gonna want to read them back to back.

Hercules 6

Series ends here, I think, but story continues in Civil War: God War (or something like that) So if you like this run, which I think you have a 33/33/33% chance of liking/not liking/not really caring one way or the other (and even a small 1% chance you will love it), you will want to continue the story there.

All New All Different Avengers 8

Almost to the exciting stuff  Cheesy

Illuminati 6

I really don't remember this book ??

Mockingbird 2

An okay series. If you have time it's worth a read for the first few issues. I left at three, so don't know after that.

All New X-Men 8

Not the best and not the worst X book, but I'm just not a fan of Apocalypse and I think this is in that arc, soooo ...

Agents of SHIELD 4 (Standoff Tie-In)

Nope. You know who writes this, so you know I aint'a reading it.  Grin

A-Force 4

Another title that started so promising and just started to feel ... not bored, but like it didn't really matter so why bother. Not bad, just ... exists I guess.

There ya go. You're welcome.

I have this odd feeling that once I start Standoff I'll wind up dropping all the tie-ins and just read the titles I normally get.  I have no basis for this feeling but it is there.

Standoff is a short crossover, though shorter for me as I didn't read or know about the Illuminati one  Cheesy but I think it is only two issues with a few "tie-in" issues, but I only read the following and I felt like I got a complete story (and there is stuff that comes out of it that is important so at least read the Alpha and Omega)

The Avengers Stand-Off: Welcome to Pleasant Hill (Prelude)
The Avengers Stand-Off: Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha
All-New Avengers #7
All-New Avengers #8
Captain America (Sam Wilson) #7
Captain America (Sam Wilson) #8
The Avengers Stand-Off: Assault on Pleasant Hill Omega

That is all I read and I may have missed something, but honestly, I felt like I got a good story. Heck, Im trying to remember if the Avengers ones were even pertinent to the event or if it was Sam? Maybe it was both, maybe it was neither? I think you can skip them both if you are not reading them already. Or skip Sam if you're not reading that, as I know you're reading Waid's Avengers.

Hope this hits better for you. Too much like ... well ... not trying to give it away, but too much like ... things I read before in another "similar" title.

Think I am just gonna wait until the next Hawkman title and try again.

It's Hawkman, I gotta get it. It's my weakness.

But this was all Adam Strange, and I've never given a flying fig about Outer Space rocket backpack with lazer gun Man.

Exactly. And it just has that Rann vs Thanagar feel to it, yeah? I am just hoping this means a new St. Roch, Carter Hall Hawkman is around the corner

That's about all I hope for. Or yet another 'clean up' (  Undecided Roll Eyes ) of Hawkman's mythos. Ignore the living nth metal wings and transformation he got under Liefeld. Go back to the mostly cleaned up Hawkman from Geoff Johns/Palmiotti & Gray's run, and be done with it!! I loved that stuff!!
