@safefruitcake: Sure thing. I'm currently in the process of reading through the whole so series so I will make sure I post if I come across great stories featuring these two.

@safefruitcake: Here is a cool list that I found of the Thing's best stories. As I mentioned earlier, a lot of these come from Marvel Two-In-One. The ones from Stan and Jack's FF run are fantastic. The assault on the Baxter Building contains one of my favorite comics moments of all time with the conclusion involving Ben. Issue 51 is a classic. I really want to read the Two-In-One issues, but have yet to get around to it.

For Sue, she gets her big push in John Byrne's run and is heavily featured in Hickman's run as well. She is a great character in the early Stan/Jack issues, but she doesn't get a lot of time to shine. Most of her contributions are behind the scenes and subtle.

Are any of the Star Wars comics an entertaining read? Comixology is doing a sale on some of the collections, and I wanted to check to see if anyone thought they were worth a purchase.

There are three omnibuses that look the most interesting to me

  1. Star Wars Omnibus: A Long Time Ago ... volume 1 1977 (issues 1-27)
  2. Star Wars Omnibus: Knights of the Old Republic volume 1 2006 (Issues 0-18)
  3. Star Wars Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron vol 1

There are also a couple others like Star Wars Tales Vol. 1 and Volume 1 of the 2013 series (In the Shadow of Yavin).

Any recommendations?

@jonny_anonymous: That is great news. Also looks like a new Harbinger is coming as well. Definitely looking forward to that. I just wish Kris wasn't involved. I am not a fan of her incarnation in the new universe.

I'm ok with it. I'm really glad they didn't kill off Hawkeye after they spent the entire movie making it look like he was going to die. Pretty much everything he said or did was a classic build up sympathy before dying trope from showing the family, to saying he wants to settle down, to finishing the last project on the house, to being safe and then going out to save one more child. They telegraphed it so much that the whole time I was thinking that there is no way they would be that obvious. They even made a joke out of it when Quicksilver takes the bullets and said, "I bet you didn't see that coming."

That art is fantastic. I'll definitely give this a look, but I am not a big fan of Kot. I have really disliked his run on Bucky Barnes which I decided to drop after the last issue as well as his run on Secret Avengers which I did drop. Zero wasn't bad, but it did not hold my attention.

That End of the World Party cover is fantastic. I love seeing Tony standing there with Howard the Duck.

I actually like the way Ben looks. He was created to be a monster and definitely looks the part while retaining a lot of the modern comic feel.
