      If I had to pick out of all the characters I’m following, Thor is the one I look forward to reading the most. He’s also among the only Lee/Kirby comics I intend to read.

      Oh man, lots of sales going on right now. So many, so little time...

      The current massive blockbuster sale on the Marvel comic app is the perfect opportunity for me to make a big dent in my wishlist!

        Yeah it’s a great deal!

      I’m currently sitting at 786 to go, from all publishers.

      Man, even after all this time, my wish list doesn’t feel like it’s getting any smaller...

      Well, after giving it some consideration. I’ve decided I’m going to read Bendis’ entire run on Ultimate Spider-Man.
      1. Star Saber

        I read his work all the way up to before Ultimatum. It’s pretty entertaining and one of Marvel’s best runs of the modern era.

      I felt too lost with the former, and it’s designation as Volume 6 in the solicitations sealed the deal.

      Iron Man, just wasn’t quite catching me the way I hoped. I’ll still read it, but not on a monthly basis.

      I have yet to catch up with Coates’ Captain America run, so if that’ll get switched, we’ll see.

      Well, I’ve switched two of the comic I was buying monthly to trades, Black Panther and Iron Man.

        Not liking what I saw from either of those titles. Ta Nehisi Coates' Marvel work has been mostly disappointing for me. Slott's on the other hand, feels really preachy. The fact that he's also dealing with a ton of elements that I hated from Iron Man the last few years (Tony Stark's weird parentage and Arno) and well didn't bother continuing.

      I’ve recently decided to change the number of series I buy individually in order to reduce my monthly bill.
    11. Omegashark18
      Omegashark18
      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.
      1. Star Saber

        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...

      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!
