Uncanny Avengers is definitely my favorite right now; New Avengers is a close second, but it feels less like the Avengers to me.

That said, I haven't read 'Assemble yet, even though people keep telling me I should.

That's why it's so good

@cheesesticks: I like it as much as I like any Avengers book, but not for the same reason I like Avengers books necessarily.

New Avengers has been awesome. Hickman is rocking that book, but I feel his main Avengers book has been a let down. I've tried to force myself to read it a few times, but I just can't enjoy it. And Uncanny Avengers hasn't been very good at all IMO either.

yeah. I did like the first few issues, and I actually think the last two (12 and 13) were my favorites; but even it's best issues aren't all that great, and there hasn't been much else I've been all that into. And, after 13 issues, I think I've given it a fair chance.

They are all good accept for Avengers Arena & Uncanny Avengers. My favorite among them is New Avengers.

It seems pointless. It's not really as bad story wise as Avengers Arena but I feel like i'm only reading it to take scans from it to use for reference material. I don't really get excited for the issues the way I do for the other Avengers titles.

@vance_astro: fair enough.

I enjoy it a lot, but I do see it as the least contemporary feeling (of the current Avengers books), so I can see why some people might not be as excited by that.

Finally started reading Avengers and so far its my fave Avengers comic followed by New Avengers. i want to like Uncanny Avengers again but it's just not doing it for me.

The best one is New Avengers.It's just your typical Hickman and he is rocking it.His main Avengers title sucks a lot and when I read the new issues I just get so bored and when to read the fastest way as possible.

Uncanny Avengers is my favorite Avengers book, followed by Avengers.

I haven't read 'Assemble yet, even though people keep telling me I should.

As for Assemble, it's pretty much the exact same thing for me. I haven't read it yet, but a lot of people tell me it's pretty good. So I'll eventually check it out.

@tg1982: yeah, I decided I'd wait for the Enemy Within crossover (with Captain Marvel) to start, and go from there if I like it.

Where else am I going to get Black Bolt , Doctor Strange and Namor in one sitting?

@oldnightcrawler:

Me too. I think that'll be the best time to jump on, I hate jumping on in mid-arcs. I think I'll like it, though. It's written by KSD, and I love her work on Captain Marvel.

Uncanny and Young are the two I most considered picking up after reading the first issues, but I haven't actually followed either. I've read a couple of the standard Avengers and didn't care much either way. I'm reading The Enemy Within so I guess I'll have an opinion on Assemble soon enough.

@tg1982: yeah, that's why I figured it would be a good place to start too.

@akbogert: I highly recommend catching up on Uncanny Avengers if you aren't digging the regular series.

@oldnightcrawler: the funny thing is that when it comes to Uncanny, people seem to either say it is awesome or terrible. I don't know a lot of folks who are indifferent about it; seems to be pretty divisive. Even folks whose opinions I usually trust conflict on this one, haha.

yeah..

I thought (maybe I'm mistaken) that you were into the last volume of Uncanny X-force; this series seems to be getting back into and expanding on that Apocalypse mythology, so I thought you might find that interesting. But it does seem to be a very polarizing book, though I really don't understand why. I guess you'll only know if you read it..
