Haven't the AU issues been outside of a books normal run? Like "extra" issues?

I don't know, I've skipped in totality anything AU related.

I'm over the idea that the big 2 seemingly force an "event" down out throats every year. There is complacency out there that just accepts it. I did for awhile as well I suppose...I stopped some years back.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The Age of Ultron tie-ins all have the AU tag beside the issue number. The regular 616 books are still the same, but the AU "lettering" separates them. I've been skipping them except for Superior Spider-Man which was written by Christos Gage and really good.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Right. I skipped the Fantastic Four AU issue and didn't even miss a beat in the main narrative of the book. You should easily be able to read Fearless Defenders 4, skip 4AU entirely, and go into 5 without missing anything. However, the LeFay connection between the AU and the main FD storyline is interesting enough that I may give it a look.

Having looked at the preview am I the only one who thinks its ironic that the issue is said to be a good jumping on point only to have a comment made by a character with a little box underneath that says go read issue such and such to understand what the hell they are talking about?

Caught up on All New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Savage Wolverine, Cable & X-Force, and Uncanny X-Force. I like them in that order. What i would give to have X-Treme X-Men, Cable v3, and Whedon's Astonishing X-Men back, though...

They're trying to avoid getting cancelled by issue 12.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Well they are set in a different timeline.

But there's two issues numbers identical for 616 and AU.

Which must be fricking annoying for people still cataloguing their comics.

I mean when you get home from a convention and find that you spent 60 bucks on comics you forgot that you already owned, because the shot through the heart memory of not owning them is stronger than the meek orgasm memory of buying all those same comics from the last time you found them, cataloguing and tracking tens of thousands of comics still doesn't pay for itself.

Looking back on the lists I used to keep, my mania boarded on the religious fanaticism of those monks locked up in monasteries illuminating manuscripts.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Anyone else pick up Avengers: Enemy Within #1? It's the start of the five issue Captain Marvel event that starts in the issue I named, then continues in Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble.

It's (I think) going to be the resolution of the ongoing Captain Marvel storyline of Carol's brain lesion and the person responsible for targeting her lately.

This crossover event is also going to be my jumping on point for Avengers Assemble, a title I'm looking forward to picking up as an ongoing since I'm really digging the work Kelly Sue DeConnick is doing on Captain Marvel.

I thought it was great...and yes it does carry over from Carol's arc in "Captain Marvel". Not to fond of the art though.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah I'm not sure why artwork like in Capt Marvel and other comics is so 'popular' lately, sure's got energy and it's kinda 'fun' but I sorta like my comic art to be less cartoony and rubbery. I mean I half expect Carol to pull a giant mallet out of her purse and whack someone with it with little cartoon birdies floating above their head.

Not sure if it's just an internet trend started with artists like Skottie Young and the like, but I think that kinda style of art should be left to like web comics and strips, not full on comics. It's like an almost "teen" style
