Avengers #1 - Jed MacKay?  An Avengers team with Vision and Scarlet Witch back on it?  I'll at least give it a try!

Groot #1 - I would have said "pass" but then I saw "Dan Abnett".  He's hit or miss on his own without Lanning but I'll try the first issue and see what I think.

Fantastic Four #7 - I loved issue 1 so I can't imagine me being off this.  Plus this is the oversized "Issue 700" anniversary issue.

Fury #1 - Another one I'd normally pass on but it's written by Al Ewing.  Dangit.  I'll be trying it.

X-Men Red #11 - Another Al Ewing book that's hit or miss for me.  I'm sure I'll still be on it.

Immortal X-Men #11 - The best X-book out right now.  Wouldn't miss an issue of this.

Wolverine #33 - Beast vs Wolverine - I'm in.

X-Force #40 - Enjoying this team in spite of Logan's absence.

X-Men #22 - If Duggan's Orchis arc is as good as his Vault arc was I'll be there.

Bishop: War College #4 of 5 - I cannot lie.  I'm interested.

X-23: DEADLY REGENESIS #3 (OF 5) - Hmmmm.  Might try the first issue out.

NEW MUTANTS LETHAL LEGION #3 (OF 5) - Count Nafaria?  I'm pulled in.....

Rogue & Gambit #3 of 5 - Of course I'll give the first issue a shot.

Doctor Strange #3 - More Jed MacKay AND Dormammu? - Yes please.

Deadpool #7 - I liked issue 1.  I'm sure I'll still be here.

Daredevil #11 - One of the best Marvel books right now.  Love what Chip Zdarsky's doing here.

Joe Fixit #5 of 5 - Always give Peter David a try.  Always.

Punisher #12 - Could this be the last issue?  I'm generally enjoying this so I'll still be here.

Adam Warlock: Rebirth #2 of 5 - I haven't read a Ron Marz book in years.  This sounds like it might be fun.  Plus Genis-Vell!

Speaking of Genis-Vell - I didn't see his book listed in here!  Is it gone already?  Or was it a mini?  I think it might be just a mini.

I'm looking through these solicits and there is so much JUNK symbiot Venom, Venom-related, Carnage, -Carnage related titles. Like...my opinion...that's pathetic. That stuff isn't that interesting.

Lol - I was just coming to report that as I just finished reading issue 5 and realized that was it.

At least we’ll see him again soon in Adam Warlock!

You bang on Venom all the time. I think he must've put his peanut butter in your chocolate or something... Grin

But hey, I don't understand it either buddy. I guess somewhere out there in this big ole world there are a bunch of people that can't let the 90's go.
 Cheesy
(And I guess the LCS' thank them for it as they keep ordering the things)

Wolverine #33 - Beast vs Wolverine - I'm in.

I will try to stay on that long for Ryp's art and for the fact that I liked that one issue I read recently of Wolvie, more than ANY other single Percy issue that I have tried in the past. Was that issue a fluke or no? I don't know, but I will try to stay on to see this.

Other than that one title, all I mainly see is stuff I have very little to no interest in (see Jimbo's post above  Grin) from writers that I have either never heard of or I already know I don't like. Or, and more obvious here lately, art by the same. People I either don't like because their style sucks to me or, more the norm nowadays at Marvel, artists that I have never heard of prior to this solicitation.
Hard to sell books when no-one knows anyone you have working for you or what they do know they are not liking.
 Undecided
Hey Marvel editors, take a good writer and put him (or her) with a new artistic talent or take a great artist and put him (or, again, her) and put them with a new writer. Stop putting new with new and shitty with shitty!!!

*Ahem*
Anyway... I'm gonna 4, 3, 2 and 1 it with the solicit...

My 4 'X' books -
- X-Men
- X-Men Red
- Immortal X-Men
- Wolverine (?)

My 3 'D' books -
- Doctor Strange
- Daredevil
- The "D"unisher       Cheesy Cheesy

My 2 "Oh what the hell, let's relive the past" books -
- Joe Fix-It
- Warlock

My 1 true love book -
- Fantastic Four

That's about it for me
