1. Avengers Academy
- I've been a fan from the first issue and it just keeps getting better.
2. Journey Into Mystery
- A book that I didn't expect to like at all but is now one of my favorites.
3/4. Fantastic Four
- It's a shame to hear that Hickman is leaving, but his original plans had him leaving much sooner, and without a spin-off book, so I will just enjoy the rest of his run and be glad for it. I will decide about the future of the book when I know who is taking over.
- Mark Waid's take on the character has brought me back to a character that I haven't really cared about for years.
6. Winter Soldier
- Pre-Fear Itself, Captain America
would be on this list. I'm not as fond of the new volume of Cap as I was of the old, but Winter Soldier
is essentially the continuation of the old Cap run, so here it is.
7. Generation Hope-
I know that there is only one more issue left-- that's why it's not higher on the list-- but I've really loved this book and the characters and will be sorry to see it gone.
8/9.- Avengers/New Avengers
- for pretty much the same reasons as Mr. Light
. Even agreed about the HAMMER war. It feels like it could have been told in four issues of the two books instead of six.
10.- Uncanny X-Men
- I know that some here consider it "boring", but I couldn't disagree more. In the first arc, I enjoyed Mr. Sinister as a villain for the first time since... well, ever. The Tabula Rasa arc has been great for the most part. I love the whole concept of having a Savage Land in reverse right in the middle of Montana. Although, this was a three issue arc that got expanded into four, and it does show in the pacing.
