      I’ve recently decided to change the number of series I buy individually in order to reduce my monthly bill.

      I think I just want to read different takes on the characters.

      And Earth One fits that bill.

      In other news, this Memorial Day sale has allowed me catch up big time on all the comics I’m following. I’m almost completely caught up with Superman.

      I’ve decided that I’m going to add the Earth One books to my DC reading list.

        Personally I hate the Earth One books, feels like they missed the core points of Superman and Batman (both of which I read)

      BOOM! Studios Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, with all the good things I’ve heard about it of late I decided, why the hell not?

      From Dark Horse, Hellboy. I’m familiar with the character due to Guillermo Del Toro’s two movies, and I enjoyed them both.

      And from Image, Spawn.
      I watched the HBO series a few years back and I quite enjoyed it. And so now I thought it was time to give this classic comic a go.

        Ive been following the Boom MMPR Shattered Grid storyline, pretty good. I only read the earlier volumes of Hellboy and yes those are pretty good as well. I haven’t read Spawn in years though.

      I’ve lately decided to expand my comic book reading list to other series from other publishers.

        That’s good to know, what titles are you reading?

      Well, thanks to DC’s current relaunch stuff, I now know where to put Metal in my reading order.

      Right after the conclusion of the prior Justice League comic.

        Reading order can be a pain sometimes. Technically Metal did take place before the end because they did a crossover with the main League title and other DCU titles. I purposely try to block continuity from my head sometimes when I know a story is meant to have murky connection to the current continuity, Metal being one of them and stuff like Whedon's Astonishing X-Men is another.

        True, but that likely stems from the fact that it took so long to finish.

        Just with all the post Metal labeling with the new Justice League comics makes it easy to place it. Not to mention the other comics such Wonder Woman and all the new hero stuff as well.

        On the mention of X-Men, I think I’m going to utilize Comicbook Herald for figuring out a reading order. Once I have everything that is.

      I especially enjoyed the opening scene with the trinity in the bar.

      You don’t get any bigger then the Celestial’s the reason superheroes exist in the MU.

        While that was alright, I felt the issue was a bit lacking and spent too much time on the set-up. For a better Avengers launch issue, I would recommend checking out Kurt Busiek and George Perez's Avengers #1 from 1998. It's collected under the storyline Avengers: The Morgan Conquest if I'm not mistaken.

        It’s more then likely to pick up steam. This is Jason Aaron after all.

        And believe me, I intend to read that, it’s the start of the modern era. All I have to do is get it. Not to mention the classic essentials.

        That’s true, I still believe in Aaron so I’ll definitely be waiting for what he has to show.

      You read Avengers #1?

        Yep, not blown away, but I'm interested in what Aaron has to offer. It feels like it's been a while since the Avengers assembled to face such a great threat.

      Damn, this Superman sale. So much to choose from so little time...
    10. Omegashark18

      All these blockbuster sales due to Infinity War are sure helping me get good sized chunks crossed off on my list.

      I ultimately decided on the one that was on sale.

      Epic Collections seem to be the way Marvel does their classic collections right now.

      I also bought Demon in a Bottle and Armor Wars off of an Iron Man sale.

        Nice! Hope you like Op Rebirth! I personally like Waid’s take on Cap. That opening issue in particular is a great story about Cap without him actually being involved. As for the IM books - Good choices!

      I’m having a bit of a hard time choosing regarding a collection.

      There’s a Captain America sale, and an Operation Rebirth TPB is on it(the type with the all black cover). But my dilemma is weather I should get that collection, or wait to get the Epic Collection at a later date.
      1. Star Saber
        Star Saber
        Honestly I'm not sure it really matters, if I'm not mistaken, they'll collect the same things (later prints of Operation Rebirth included the Man Without A Country arc as well). This particular arc of Captain America ended the series, so I don't think there's anything the Epic Collection can really add to it since I doubt they'll put in the previous story arc - Fighting Chance.

      Right now, my priority is Modern era stuff. Once all that’s out of the way, I’ll shift my focus to the classics.
      1. Star Saber

        In that case try the Waid/Wieringo/Porter FF run

      There currently a Fantastic Four sale and a Wolverine Essentials sale, needless to say, I’m going to cross a lot of stuff off my list.
      1. Star Saber
        Star Saber
        Good to know, the Kirby/Lee run is a must read, I would also recommend the John Byrne run during the 80s. If you want you can also see if the New Fantastic Four arc by Simonson and Adams is on sale. It’s from 347-349 I think.

      Barry was only mildly entertaining during all the Brightest day stuff. After that he become boring. Then he was handled poorly with the Nu52.

        Agreed. I think Johns was planning on some interesting stuff but got derailed by the new direction of Flashpoint and the reboot.

      I recently read the Legacy are for All-New Wolverine, I can see why it’s called one of Marvel’s best current comics.

      I recent development has forced me to rethink my comic reading order, my iPad has run out of room.

      So, which of the relaunches are you looking forward to the most.

        At this point - Avengers by Aaron, I haven’t been disappointed by most of his Marvel work lately so hoping he’ll hit this out of the park. Also expecting good things with Cates’ Venom. I want to try out Spencer’s ASM and hope he can make it as good as his Superior Foes of Spider-Man run.

      Hopefully June will be a lot more packed with New #1’s.

      Well yeah, Avengers, Black Panther, and Venom are all relaunching.

      While Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, and Deadpool all conclude.

      Everything else looks up in the air. Sans the comics that were absent from the solicitations all together.
