    Do it! Do it! Do it!

    This cosmic title is win

    I think this X-men is the one Joss wrote, Blade is pretty cool to read but if your not a fan of his style you might pass on it


    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


    These are great, original Spider-Man, IronMan, Jeph Loeb can be very hit and miss but he does brilliant with Daredevil its a fun great ride, the new IronFist was a great title



    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

    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.

    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.
