Current Titles I Am Reading

I don't have a lot of time for comics anymore. This is what makes the cut on the weekly. Everything else will have to be trades here and there.

Finally, I found someone else who likes Marvel Cosmic Story Arcs.

I am sorry to tell you this, my friend, but Gotham City Sirens is not going anywhere.

@Michael the Fly: you just found another. i LOVE anything and everything that involves Marvel Cosmic story arcs. Galactus, Eternity/Infinity, the Living Tribunal, it doesn't matter. i love them all, but i would have to say that i absolutely go nuts for anything involving the Celestials. maybe it's because they never speak, and to this very day, all the experiments they have going on are a mystery, and that no other high level abstracts seem to ever interfere with them deciding which worlds deserve to live or die. the very first time i read an issue about the Celestials was Thor#300, and i was just in awe as to how easily Arishem the Judge shrugged off the combined power of Odin, Zeus, and Vishnu like it was nothing.

@Michael the Fly @RoninTheFury too bad right now there are no Marvel cosmic titles on here because they are all cancelled! At least this month the Silver Surfer and Annihilators minis get underway. I hope they have more up their sleves, there are hundreds of extremely interesting cosmic characters to be used, well the ones D&A; didn't kill off in Thanos Imperative.

I almost thought of picking up Legion of Superheroes to get my cosmic fix. I dont know anything about it either. Don't make me turn to DC, Marvel!

@jloneblackheart: After Thanos Imperative I was expecting something big, but I guess that's Marvel for you, a lot of potential not a lot of people to use that potential.

I too love Marvel's cosmic stories. I'm sad to see Nova and Starlord go, but I think DnA's stories are the best Marvel stories I've ever read. I'm hoping that we'll get a new ongoing Silver Surfer and maybe Quasar series that will both pause for Annihilator mini series.

@TheAnnihilator: I'm pretty sure Annihilators is set for March release. It is set right after the Thanos Imperative, which some clues have suggested to me that Chaos War came after, and the SS book is set after Chaos War.  Follow? ;)
 
I never really got into Quasar, so can't say if I like or dislike him. My knowledge is only from the Star Masters.

What I meant was after this mini series we'll get some new solos and that they'll each pause for another Annihilators mini or a big cosmic mini.

@TheAnnihilator: Any Marvel cosmic is something I'll be happy with and buy for sure.

Quasar is a pretty good character by the way. He's no Captain Marvel, but the best we've got these days.

Even with less titles your pull list is more varied than mine. I fear I'll probably be limited to the same number you are when I start university. One of the downsides to a higher education and calling in life :( Great picks though, envious of New Avengers in particular!

Posted by jloneblackheart

@Lvenger: I had to cut back too. It's a bummer, but you end up reading what you really enjoy, not just stuff you feel obliged to read.

As for New Avengers, how do you pass up Hickman and Epting?? ;)

@jloneblackheart: I read his last 5 issues on Fantastic Four. Although I greatly enjoyed them, I did feel I was missing out which is a good thing. And mistakenly I was taken in with the whole Superior Spider-Man news but since my subscription makes its orders a couple of months ahead, it's a mistake I've now rectified in the future ;)

You should read Mind the Gap.

@jloneblackheart: A young woman that is in a coma, and there is someone still trying to kill her. She develops the ability to communicate through others though. I have reviewed the whole series, and it is only 8 issues in

@RazzaTazz: Is there something about it that makes you think I'll like it, or is it just really good?

@Mercy_: Good thing I didn't blurt anything out. I want to because I haven't had a chance to lament with someone else yet. Make sure to get back to me.

@jloneblackheart: I was just giving a suggestion of something to try. You are not so much the type of person that would get into Grimm Fairy Tales, though if you want something good to read, the Alice in Wonderland series is excellent!

@RazzaTazz: How far long is that? I read Alice in Wonderland annually you know...

@jloneblackheart: It was three six issue miniseries to start with, and then they had a few one shots and then rolled it into an ongoing. The originals are really good though. They reinvent the story a bit with Wonderland being a source of madness and a family with mental health problems not knowing what is their own problems and what is a result of their connection to Wonderland. There is a lot of character development all around.
