Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Marvel is returning to prose form. We're getting a Civil War adaptation off the bat!

I'd definitely be curious to read that. I love Civil War.

Too bad that our own Greg Cox isn't doing the adaptation, like he's done for DC properties.

This might be interesting. Alonso says thqat the first four books are in the pipeline. I wonder if it's going to progress from here to Secret Invasion, Dark Reign and Seige?

I just hope they're longer books that incorporate the more important tie-ins.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

It would be awesome if Greg or Christopher were interested enough to make pitches into this line or however it works. The article states Civil War is the first in an attempt to adapt their major graphic novels/stories so I would't be surprised if we got a whole variety of stories.

Very cool. I didn't see, did it say anything about a release date?

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I think it said it was due out in June? Axel Alsonso in this interview says there will be four novels, they know what they are and it doesn't mean there won't be more but they do have four on the slate.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I'm really enjoying the heck out of "The Incredible Hulk". At first I thought it was going to be another Planet Hulk type of story but it is turning into a psychological character study of both Hulk and Banner. How they are both dealing without the other. Hulk seems to be dealing with things better than Bruce who has gone all Dr. Moreau and obsessive. I think that eventually that the obvious will happen and the two of them will realize they both need each other. I am also liking this Amanda Von Doom a whole lot too.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I was originally going to wait for the TPB on Hulk but with Alpha Flight and Ghost Rider ending have decided to keep getting the book.

Hulk #3 continues the idea of Banner vs Hulk and the end of the issue lets us know it's coming to a head by next issue. We also get a sneak peek as to the process that separated out the two. The Who is still in shadow but I'm glad that started with the explanation. I'm also taking a liking to Commander Von Doom, be curious to see how her character evolves during the future issues.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Looks like we're getting an comic book adaptation for "The Amazing Spider-Man" but no creative team has been announced.

Thunderbolts #167
The journey through time continues...backward. Having teamed up with the Invaders in WWII they jumped back again. A portion of the Thunderbolt squad has just posed as Jack the Ripper being stuck in 1800 London now they've traveled even further back. The Black Knight is on the horizon with a tale in Camelot it seems.
I'm hoping for an update on my boy Man-Thing back in the present day but enjoying Satana's part with the team for now.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I really loved the first year of Heroic Age Thunderbolts, the team and the art, but ever since Fear Itself, they jettisoned all the good characters and now it's a bunch of people I don't care about, and I don't really like the whole time travel thing.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I was thinking about getting into Avengers, but I was wondering if it would be better to start off with the last 30ish issues of the pre-Dissassembled series, or if I should just jump right into the New/Might Avengers stuff?

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I would start with Dis-Assembled, as where that's where the current Brian Michael Bendis era starts.

Honestly, I'd lead off and go into Civil War off in this order...

Avengers: Dis-Assembled!
Secret War
Young Avengers: Sidekicks*
Captain America:Winter Soldier 1&2*
New Avengers vol 1: Breakout
New Avengers vol 2: Sentry
Young Avengers: Family Matters*
New Avengers vol 3: Secrets and Lies
House of M
Captain America: Red Menace 1&2*
New Avengers vol 4: The Collective
Civil War**

* Not required but HIGHLY recommended.
**Would you be interested in the myriad tie-ins or just the main story?

There are probably others that other posters might recommend, but this is limited to what I own.

Get back to us once you get this far, and we can go into post CW reading order.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Cool thanks. Yeah, I plan on at least reading stuff with Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Daredevil, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. So I'm up for pretty much anything involving those characters. Oh, and this is just a wish list, not a definite thing. There are some others I'm mildly interested in are Nova, Silver Surfer, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Runaways.
EDIT: Forgot about Thor in my list of stuff I plan on reading.
