What are your favorite Marvel NOW! titles, and why? I'm looking for opinions to give me an idea as to what I might like. It also gives you an excuse to talk about your favorite titles, so why not?
- Thor: God of Thunder - The current story arc is fantastic. The cuts between young, modern, and future Thor is done very well and Ribic's art has been stellar.
- New Avengers - The scope is grand and is a thought provoking story. Steve Epting continues to be my favorite artist.
- Indestructible Hulk - I like the new direction of the story and think that it will continue to be strong.
- Avengers - I love the art and believe that this will turn into a really good story once it picks up steam. The issues have been very good so far, but I am excited to see how it will all come together in conjunction with New Avengers.
- Secret Avengers - Only one issue has been released, but I love the premise and the first issue was well done. The interactions were great, especially between Hawkeye, Hill, and Fury. I could see this moving up the list after a couple issues.
- Captain America - Still not sure how I feel about this since Brubaker's Cap was one of my favorite runs of all time, and this is such a large departure. Not a huge fan of Romita's art as some panels look very good followed by a kid with a pumpkin head. I believe Remender has a good plan in place, but it is vast departure from my favorite iteration that it will take me a while to appreciate it.
Not Marvel Now! but I am greatly enjoying Hawkeye and Winter Soldier.
I am also looking forward to Age of Ultron coming in March and then Thanos Rising the following month or so.
Captain Marvel - still hate the name and costume change though, it was unnecessary, and they need to stick with one damn artist.
Fantastic Four - Always a fan
Superior Spider-man - i gave it a chance not regretting it.
Avengers - first few issues blew me away, cant say i've enjoyed the last to issues but im optimistic. Like i said with MS MARVEL im not a fan of artist changes, but what evs the writing is good.
All New X-men, Uncanny X-men, New Avengers, Avengers, Indestructible Hulk, Thor God of thunder and FF. I was going to get Superior Spider-man when it's collected, but after seeing may 2013 solicitations, it's coming out in soft cover and my OCD side is raging with sadness (I like em hard... O_O).... i guess i'll get Captain America, and Uncanny Avengers when they're collected ^_^
Of the ones I'm currently reading:
- New Avengers
- New Avengers
- All New X-Men
- Uncanny Avengers
- Superior Spider-Man
- X-Men Legacy
- Avengers Arena
- Fantastic Four
- Indestructible Hulk
- Thor God of Thunder
- Cable and the X-Force
are we counting titles that didn't get relaunched but still have the red banner as well? because if so hawkeye and captain marvel would be in there somewhere... (oh and i didn't include titles that are so far only one book in as that's not enough to make a judgment. i have dropped some titles already though, namely iron-man and cap. america)
