Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

Grant Morrison's New X-Men.*
Ultimates 1 and 2.
Civil War.

Also, Alias. I don't know if that's <10 years old, but it was pretty good. More recently, and I can't speak for the whole runs, but what I've read of Brubaker's Iron Fist and Pak's Hercules has been really entertaining, especially Hercules, which reminds me very much of Giffen and DeMatteis' Justice League in tone and style. It's not quite at that level, but it's excellent fun.

Someone mentioned Iron Man Extremis, which is good, and might seem very cool--if you'd never read a Warren Ellis comic before. It hits virtually every note Warren Ellis hits in everything else he's done since Transmet. "DMT is good for you!" We know, Warren. We've known since the Doctor told us ten or fifteen years ago in fucking StormWatch. And the antagonist is no Mandarin, just the same boring Tim McVeigh-clone Ellis uses when he can't think of especially interesting motivations or characterization.

Everyone apparently loves Simone's Deadpool, although I confess I've never read more than a page or two I've seen on the Internet.

*Actually, it's a neat run, but this is pretty skippable, especially once Magneto bites it again. Skippable like every X-Men comic published since X-Men #3, lo so many years ago.

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

Not sure of the timeframe, but borrowing a friends' collection of the "Exiles" run is what got me interested in comics. I'd highly recommend them. (Don't bother with "New Exiles"... I still have no idea how they managed to write something simultaneously over-explicated and confusing as all hell).

Planet Hulk, and the Incredible Hercules that spun from it.

Avengers: the Initiative is a title I've enjoyed, but it relies a lot on the big events in the universe.

The most recent X-Force is another series with consistently good story and art.

X-Factor is generally strong (barring a few rough patches here and there), and it's written by Peter David, whose Trek work I know you like.

Ultimate Spider-Man is an excellent reinvention of the mythology. Be sure to bail out before the astonishing crapfest that is Ultimatum.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

I've really been getting into Marvel comics the past few years. I've been enjoying all of the various Civil War - World War Hulk - Secret Invasion - Dark Reign - Siege stuff. It really is one massive single story spread out over ?8? years. Joss' Astonishing X-Men run was excellent. I think the ones I look forward to the most are the various Bendis Avengers titles (New, Mighty, Dark, Initiative...).

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

Incredible Hercules - the whole series, but it you were just going to read one it would be "Sacred Invasion", the best event tie-in ever.

Ed Brubaker's Captain America and Daredevil

Brubaker/Fraction Immortal Iron Fist

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

I haven't read many of the recent comics, but some I have enjoyed.

The Planet Hulk/World War Hulk story arc.

The Civil War story arc

The new volume of Marvel Team-Up centered around Spider-Man

The new run of Thor

They started in the 90's but Busiek's run on the Avengers and Jurgens run on Thor.

Avengers/Thunderbolts crossover

Marvel: The End(Last three issues only, the first three are pure derivative Starlin).

The original Cap is win! I'm not sure about Civil War, its controversial but a good read. Trouble is it f*cks up the Marvel universe bad leaving it in a complete mess and forcing everyone into the boring Dark Reign - Siege stuff.

These are cool titles, great for Marvel mythology and history. Not sure about Ghost Rider, its a bit like Blade and Punisher you kinda need to be a fan of these dark gory genres. Eternals goes deep into the orginal Jack Kirby mythos, Marvels takes you from the 40s to the 90s in an incredible story illustrated by the painter Alex Ross...he did the life-like title sequence for the Spider-Man movie

World War Hulk
I've heard good things about 90s Avengers and Ironman and I've read some good 90s issues, avoid 90s Spider-Man that's mostly clone shit. World War Hulk is an action packed brawl, much more dark violence and action packed fun than Mighty Avengers. Even though Mighty is a much more up-to-date and hip story I would avoid it because its hollow and it leads nowhere but into the mess that is Dark Reign and Siege
Pretend Ares, Thing, Sentry, Ironman and all those people died during Hulk's World War Hulk rampage

If you want to read a Classic Avengers team pick up back issues or start reading when the people at Marvel fix the Universe...hopefully by 2011

What else...oh yeah I heard X-23 is good, she looks like a little feminine Wolverine rip off but I heard her story is tragic and moving and very well written

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

That is the Whedon arc of Astonishing. I would caution that it's mainly worth it for the Cassaday art. The new Hellfire Club bit is pretty cool, but the other two arcs are as forgettable as any X-Men arc (even though something "important" happens, it probably ought not have).

I'm not sure if those issues of Avengers vol. 3 include any of Busiek's sweet, if very old-school, run, or if he was done by that point. I'm pretty positive that not all of it is Busiek. In fact, I think some of it is Austen's excruciatingly bad run.

If that Eternals 1-7 is the Gaiman Eternals series, it's okay. For some reason I think that was a original graphic novel, not a series, so this 1-7 noise might be something else, and likely worse, entirely.

I agree with the assessment. Other than perhaps the first storyline, there is really nothing groundbreaking to the Whedon X-Men. After the first arc it's mostly standard science-fiction stuff that other writers have already done with the team.

I only have the first two issues of Annihilation, but it is really good so far.

I have the first two issue of Colossus Bloodline too, but that is not as interesting so far.

I really love House of M. A lot of people don't though, but I like Bendis.

Re: Best Marvel comics of the past 10 years

I don't get all the love for the Annihilation series. I read the entire bit and Conquest based on the praise here, but it's just alright. The story is interesting but it stars no-name characters who aren't that interesting or well written, and the art was about 95% utterly forgettable. I thought War of Kings was a lot better because it starred characters I actually knew and cared about and it was about the Shi'ar.
