I literally just finished looking at all of these on CBM and I am DEFINITELY getting (most) of these. They just look so amazing on every level.

Seriously looking forward to (most) of these.

The cover to Uncanny Avengers looks like a really expensive variant cover for some reason. (In a really good way.) Also can't wait for Infinity...

Edited by Grey56

It's sad commentary on the state of Marvel when there is only one title out of this mix which I will spend money on. And it's not as if I am not at a point in my life where I can't subsidize more - I just see nothing which would otherwise motivate me.

Between the wife and I we get around 40 books a month give or take - and Marvel constitutes less than 5 of those books. I still hold faith in Peter David so I request what he does but short of that it's only Uncanny and that only out of stubborn hope.

Between convoluted time-space continuums to every third year reboots to poor visual representation over quality cover art or even worse; bad writing and bad character concepts - it's all quite depressing.

It must gall the piss out of the front offices to see the success DC is enjoying. Competition should sharpen both companies - but Marvel just hasn't seemed to do so over the last 5 years. Perhaps more.

Looking forward to Spider-Girl appearing in Avengers Assemble. Any word on how long this story-arc will be?

Darkest Hour...

Enough said.

Also Scarlet Spider, Hulk, and Superior Carnage. Pretty awesome week.

I honestly don't even know what he's talking about,either. I got a headache halfway through reading that.

I haven't really been keeping up with what's going on. Is inhumanity another event or is it part of Infinity?

Posted by longbowhunter

Looks like its gonna be a Marvel heavy week for me. I've got FF, Hawkeye and Uncanny Avengers. Gonna miss Acuna on UA but looking forward to McNiven.

Inhumanity is not an event. Think of it as a new status quo for the Marvel Universe because of what happened in Infinity,like a fall-out. I won't say what happened.

Nova 100: NO! Nobody likes Sam Loeb I mean Alexander.

Jeebus. They spent so much time and effort building Richard Rider into one of the coolest heroes in the MU, and then they go and kill him... OK, FINE! But then to almost immediately replace him with a chump kid just... No. No thank you, Marvel.

I don't even...what?

As has been pointed out, Marvel has never done a reboot. It should also be pointed out that Marvel is probably not galled at DC, since Marvel controls 32% of the market (DC has 29%) and 38% of units (DC is at 32%). Not to mention Marvel's share in film and television. Objectively speaking, Marvel is doing better than DC as a company.

And...Superior Spider-Man, Infinity, the new Guardians of the Galaxy, Carol Danvers killing it as Captain Marvel, a dizzying array of quality X-Men, the amazing Hawkeye series, and a Deadpool annual with MADCAP!? NONE of that piques your interest? What DO you like?

Nothing in that collection make me remotely interested in buying them. Some of the art isn't great and 99% of the covers are pin-ups. None make me wonder what's going to happen inside the book. Sad state of affairs. Jim Shooter please come back.

Nova is a must-buy, the others look kinda cool.

@misternefarious: I feel ya, man...I tried to get into the new Nova(awkward), but I just couldn't...I wish they'd bring Rider back...

Scarlet Spider and Hawkeye this week for me.

Posted by ngrey651

Oh good, Superior Spider Man looks dead. At long l-oh. Wait. Forgot. The whole "Venom" thing. So much for that. Well I guess I can be glad Avengers Arena's suckitude is over. Because THAT'S why I pick up comics! To watch kids KILLING EACH OTHER HORRIBLY!

Edited by Mrfuzzynutz

@grey56: Curious, not trying to be a jerk just wondering, because I grew up with "Make Mine Marvel" and DC was a distant second. But I find I am just not that interested in alot of the titles out from Marvel these days, and at the very least the ones I did enjoy I no longer care for.

So i was wondering if it is a "age thing" or just that Marvel just seems to be on the downswing at the moment

Posted by SuperiorScarletSpider

Loved infinity but lost interest in it seemed like the whole ordeal in space just ended abruptly.

Posted by Renchamp

Dear everyone,

Grey56 went from a good natured user to this elitist schmuck that uses words that he thinks sounds uppity and grand but really end up making him look like what happened in this thread. No, Marvel has never rebooted. No, we don't care how many books you and your wife buy (as if having a lady ups your status on a geek site). And how is DC enjoying better success than Marvel? They are about neck and neck, yet it is DC that has had the least consistent books with pissed off creators.

I normally ignore this guy but figured I'd chime in once everyone saw his fallacies.

Signed,

Renchamp

Infinity and New Avengers this week

And, to respond to the OP: Deadpool Annual! FF! Uncanny X-Force!

Edited by Thitiki

Can someone tell me what is happening in Infinity ? What is it?

Posted by zedneptune

@thitiki: An ancient alien race known as the Builders have been systematically destroying all life in the universe. The Avengers travel off-world to deal with the threat, but Thanos takes advantage of a vulnerable Earth and launches his own invasion for more personal reasons. Jonathan Hickman is the writer behind this 6-issue event, and he also writes Avengers and New Avengers, which are intertwined in the story.

The final installment comes out this Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Excited to see the conclusion to Infinity.

And this is probably my last issue of All-New X-Men. I just don't think I can look at Kitty the same anymore after her bratty little temper tantrum.

Posted by Grey56

I don't know what's worse, the fact that everyone is so hung up on the nomenclature of 'reboot' (READ: Every time a title gets a new volume) or that there's so much posterior perturbation over someone having a less than sterling view of the Marvel front offices.

@metakevin - where are you drumming up your market share numbers? Are you solely referring to new comic book sales? Truly - it doesn't matter; the fact of the matter remains that for Marvel to have dominated the market (read; comic sales and not corollary media) for nearly 4 decades to now be financially in a dead heat is as much of a fog horn than anything. Given all form of media; film, electronic entertainment, clothing and other brand marketing - how is it again that you fee like AOL/Time Warner is being outpaced by Marvel and their film branches farmed out to Disney? Do you even read monthly or annual reports from market evaluations? From the look of your profile - I'd say your main job is seeking out people from under your bridge.

More-over though, if you'd pull your head out of your ass for a second and truly address the heart of my problem you'd probably realize we're not that far off from each other as fans of the medium; I am openly opining about the continuity and quality of the books which I have followed for years. Probably longer than you've known how to scratch your jock. We wouldn't know though because you remain safely anonymous in your ivory tower.

Finally, out of the 7 cited alternatives you've provided - did you even bother to cross reference how many of them fell into consistency with original lament before hammering away at your crusty keyboard? Your penchant for poor characterization aside - it still ignores the stagnant marketing attempts to re-galvanize the fan base with reissues of new volumes and quick creative turn-arounds. I seriously doubt you can even name the longest running creator on any one Marvel book.

You, like most of the other folks on here whom are screaming "DURRR MARVEL BE GOOD" at the top of their internet bullhorn have such a piss poor sample size with which to draw from by comparison that's its like listening to a group of medical doctors try to comment on the importance of structural integrity on the orbital satellite's fuselage being put into orbit. Answering your query as to what I like at this point would be a redundancy beyond imagination - but try reading my damn profile.

@renchamp : I have to say sir, that out of all the folks commenting on here, your remarks are the only ones that grieve me. It hurts my feelings that you feel the way you do now. I would've hoped that you could understand someone's passion (however worded or phrased) for the medium often is displayed in myriad ways - particularly when voiced negatively. For all my fallacies - I am nothing if not invested in maintaining a good product, a good community and good discussion.

I smell a troll around here. Somebody call Thor.

Posted by Renchamp

@grey56: It grieved me having to unfollow you based on this odd approach in your somewhat recent posts. You sound like a jerk hipster. You have decent points but you sound like a jerk hipster. Maybe a quick read through Strunk and White would help you sound less pompous (because that's what it is) and more down to earth with the rest of us. It's like you are reverse trolling in that we all are debased because we don't use "myriad." (Because nobody uses it, not even those of us who know how to use it properly.) We would like to be impressed by your opinions and not how you state them. I didn't even read your comment to metakevin because I didn't want to wade through fake proper English. (That's what it sounds like - like you are trying too hard to abuse proper English.) Hopefully things get switched around because I did like following you.

You write a 400 word essay on my very reasonable response to your vague criticisms and unsubstantiated claims that Marvel is somehow failing artistically and commercially - on a post intended for Marvel fans - and I'M the troll?

Well maybe you aren't a troll, but you're something worse - a comic book hipster. People like you scare people away from comics every day. Maybe not reading comics, but definitely from joining the comic-reading community. I recently got into digital comics in a big way, which means I'm now more connected with the online community - you make me kind of wish I'd never looked. You may have been into comics "before it was cool", but bludgeoning people with your "credentials" doesn't make your opinion more valid than theirs. It just makes you look like a bully and makes them want to give up the hobby. That is, of course, if they're actually new to reading comics. I just happen to be new to ComicVine. Thanks for the warm welcome.

In any case, I look at this collection of comics and I see a wide variety of promising, fun, engaging, and enjoyable reads (except for Sam Alexander's Nova, obviously). I honestly don't understand how a fan of super-hero comics can look at it and see the kind of negativity that you spewed. My surprise at your response was genuine.

next week is going to be AWESOME!! uncanny avengers (finally scarlet vs rogue), phli jimenez on savage wolverine, arana back in avengers assemble, all the infinity books (best marvel event in decades perhaps EVER), and the end of an era: the final issue of avengers arena. its going to be a heck of a good week for me

Posted by MaccyD

@ngrey651: I like Avengers Arena due to the fact that the writer can go further with character development by using actual risk and less restraints than on other Marvel characters. Pretty much, dying makes it more risky and they're able to do more than normal Marvel characters.

@metakevin

: Good grief. I don't know where to begin or end. I suppose first we'll do away with this notion that you are a victim of some kind. In case you are having a lapse of some kind - you took the time to hit quote then reply to my original opine which was directed......at no one.

My response to your 'surprised' reaction was to more empirically establish some type of coherent reason why you are wrong. I don't know if you know how the adult world works (driven by things like the bottom dollar and predictive results) - but that is how we objectively evaluate things. That means that you're going to be wrong sometimes. You responded to none of my original thoughts nor none of those in my second response - you simply rolled over and played a victim.

I got news for you though; if this is your first indoctrination to the online comic community and you are trying to convince me that I am the reason to drive you out then you are probably long overdue for a gut check. Either that or you've managed to go your entire life without having your outlook challenged....on anything. Let alone a hobby on a largely anonymous, open forum. (It's scary out here - pack a lunch)

Seeing as you aren't new to comics though (see: I'm actually responding to multiple points from your post and not playing a violin for the hurt feelings police) but just new to this site - its even more absurd that you would be surprised at someone so invested having a problem with the state of Marvel's stable of titles. Either that or you're a young 20's kid whom has no data set (you know, the same logical reference point I made which you again ignored) to critically evaluate quality work from bathroom graffiti. Next time though just tell your boss or your homeroom teacher that their 'credentials' are for the birds and that you should be running the class.

People like you continue to subsidize a product which is sub par. People like you scare me every day - every damn day. Not because your'e physically imposing or intellectually bullying anyone but because you've been given the great club of the interwebz....and now that someone done made a statement that you no-uh-likuh well then that must mean it's worth picking a fight about then pretending to be the victim. You'd have everyone on here believe that it's not okay to voice opposition to the quality and inconsistency I've referenced, that I should not demand the most from my money. - that I should be silent. But that's okay though, I wouldn't want to bully you.

Hopefully the wizard has some more liquid courage for you. Even if he doesn't though and you are too frightened to mince words over the interwebz and hence forever scared off from the comics community - I can't say I'd miss you. Were you a child whom needed simple encouragement in their dreams and interests - it would be a shameful thing to berate them for their adolescent views. You're not a child underneath that bearded avatar, are you? I would truly hope someone displaying the most notorious son of Titan on their page would have a little more to them than laying down at the first sign of opposition. Oh well, tell me more of your surprise over my 'negativity'.

You have no idea how much I enjoyed reading this. Seriously people this is A+ comedy material! "child underneath bearded avatar" ***snickers*** Next time you should rant in a poem parody format...

seriously though @metakevin you have a point--why are there so many negative trollers here? I understand that comics attract the anti-establishment community but seriously find another website to blow up. please. the rest of us on comicvine are starting to get tired of it...

Posted by Grey56

@citizenbane: Threatening me at the end of a gun isn't likely to frighten me - let alone over the comfort of the internet. Warn, ban all you like for my expressing opinions. Not once did I devolve into name calling or libel. I don't know if you even read the entire thread - but if you did and you are still threatening me then there's really nothing left for me to benefit from by stating my case.

I didn't realize we all needed to nod in agreement to our round enjoyment of whatever new topic is posted. Nor did I realize there was something against the user policy in engaging one another even in disagreement. Ironically enough however, my original statement was directed at no one and in fact was just stating my general discontent aimed at an organization.

Your statement is just as much of an insult to that freedom of expression as anything I can imagine. If you're attempting to put me over a barrel for calling people out and stating that their facts and approach are wrong - then there's really no place for me here at all. You're attempting to moderate someone for defending their point of view - even if worded strongly. Do as you like - you're going to anyway. Just know that I know a thing or two about waving a badge at people and when its appropriate.

Posted by metakevin

@admiral_ironbeast: I know right? I love reading his essays, its like a case study in overcompensation. Especially since I'm not entirely sure he understands all the words he's using, or in the very least needs some help spelling them ("if this is your first indoctrination to the online comic community").

Fortunately he seems to be the exception, rather than the rule. Most of the ComicVine community has been lots of fun to interact with, and I especially enjoy all the recommendations that get shared around here. I've branched out a lot from what I've been reading the last 20-some-odd years thanks to that, and it would take more than being called a child by this prattling user to scare me away.

@grey56:

You aren't doing yourself any favors to distance yourself from the "comic hipster" characterization with this post. Maybe you don't want to, maybe you don't understand how destructive that is, I'm not sure. But being flippant and dismissive, then mocking someone who finds your condescension offensive - is just being obnoxious. You aren't trying to take part in a discussion involving a difference of opinions, you're just writing a self-congratulatory lecture.

So no, I don't want to engage in a paragraph-by-paragraph insult slugfest with you. Accusing me of being a child (again) and being new to comics (again) still isn't going to provoke me into that. You've typed up enough empty content for the both of us. I wanted to discuss new Marvel comics and why you had a negative opinion of them when most everyone else (including myself) seemed to have the opposite opinion, but you clearly aren't interested in that. I wasn't trying to challenge your comic book "masculinity", I was just making an observation.

Posted by Grey56

@citizenbane: So, if I'm reading correctly; you're simply wanting to ensure that everyone maintains some quality of enjoyment while viewing threads on your website. And further, you want to make sure that you ban someone whenever there is a perceived slight or insult being directed at another. Check.

Again though, if you have in fact looked over the entire thread as you say and still found my original opine so offensive as to merit the response I received and then found my other responses unfair then my previous statement to you answers what I posed but then went unanswered. Fair enough.

As for how to use a badge and the appropriate application of authority, I can only hope that CV follows suit with ESPN's message board model and mandates that everyone signing up for an account must have a legitimate third party account to verify their person. That would go a long way to ensure that there was a good deal more qualification of commentary before it ever sees internet print.

Good luck to you.

Edited by Grey56

@metakevin: As for you - still wearing the same hat I see. It's funny, during all of my impassioned discussion that the only thing you took away from it was your poor characterization. That's all right though - I'm comfortable with the results here even with a third party stepping in to adjudicate in telling me I'm wrong.

You're a delight, sir. I can only hope for the most positive of experiences with you from here on in the future. Hopefully you find this site as amiable as the rest of your day to day life has been.
