Thanks for the confirmation, Turtletrekker. JiM, I hope, is going to fill the "here's an odd corner of a shared universe" hole that Secret Six used to fill. I have the World Eaters and it was ... not terrible, but lacking something. It would have been a two-issue filler arc when Simonson was writing Thor.

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

So I was wondering what everyone's current favorite Marvel books are right now? I know a few of you have mentioned them in the New 52 thread, but thought it might be fun to state them in here as well. Here are my top ten right now in no particular order:

-Amazing Spider-Man
-Wolverine and the X-Men
-Fantastic Four
-FF
-The Incredible Hulk
-Ultimate Comics Spider-Man
-Scarlet Spider
-Winter Soldier
-X-Men: Legacy
-Daredevil (knew I forgot one!)

Daredevil, hands down.

I'm trying Avengers Assembled since it looks to be the place where Marvel Cosmic is going again. It's okay, but if it weren't for the return of characters I love, I wouldn't be buying it.

I tried the first TPB of Fantastic Four by Hickman and enjoyed it. Money is preventing me from buying the rest of his run right now.

Regarding Journey into Mystery:

I see that its first nine issues were part of the "Fear Itself" crossover and its next three were bannered under "Shattered Heroes." If I were interested in giving the series a try, would I need anything outside of JiM itself in order to understand its issues under those banners?

No, you can read JiM by itself without the main FI event. The story in JiM runs alongside FI and is certainly influenced by its events, but it is its own complete take on the tale.

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

1. Avengers vs. X-Men (what can I say? it's a big event)
2. Avengers
3. New Avengers
4. Amazing Spider-Man (particularly the epics like Spider-Island and Ends of the Earth!)
5. Fantastic Four (the Mad Celestials storyline was epic!)
6. Avengers Academy (like the new larger cast)
7. Wolverine & X-Men (great art, the only fun X book)
8. Ultimates (Hickman is running an interesting story)
9. Iron Man (picking up with the Mandarin's master plan)
10. Thunderbolts (been getting progressively less interesting the past year)

If we are counting as-yet uncompleted minis, then there is Johnathon Hickman's SHIELD mini which just dropped of the face of the Earth. Two issues to go and...?

As for future known Marvel projects...I'm psyched for Captain Marvel (Carol!!!!) and Bendis (yes I am excited for a Bendis project)'s Spider-Men.

The final issues are still happening. Just delayed while Hickman has been working on other stuff.

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

The Marvel Civil War prose novelization comes out Wed as well...there are a couple of reviews on Amazon already for it. Including one post that lists a lot of changes for the novel...both likes and dislikes the reviewer had. Overall he gave it a positive review despite the amount of changes. I'll still be checking it out but from the looks of the changes listed in the post...I'm not sure I'll like it.

I'll have to remember to look for it. I thought it wasn't coming out until closer to the end of the year.

Nope. It always always scheduled for a June or July release I believe. There are other books that Marvel has planned in the line though that haven't been announced yet. Civil War is just the first one.
