Justice League 0
Avengers Academy 37 - On hold until I have a job
New Mutants 49
Venom 25 - May put this on hold
That means an immediate cut in the comics I will buy, and the sale of some of my collection.
Swamp Thing 0
Invincible Iron Man 524
As to the books I might have bought:
Action Comics 0 - I was thinking of dropping this anyway, and was pretty much planning to after Morrison left.
Detective Comics 0 - This I will pick up in the future when I am capable of doing so. I happen to like this run so far. It's not as consistent as Snyder's Batman, or as thrilling as Batman and Robin, but it's definitely one of the stronger Batbooks.
Mind the Gap 4 - This was a book that I had problems continuing to buy. It is definitely interesting, but I'm not sure that's enough to keep me reading.
Age of Apocalypse 7 - Pausing this for now breaks my heart. This book is an exciting alternate take on the Marvel universe, but I simply don't know that much about the history of this alternate universe. It has been tough to follow at times, but really enjoyable. I will revisit this book as soon as possible.
Avengers Academy 36 - With the Marvel Now initiative dropping soon, I hear this title is going to end. Here are my thoughts: Marvel relaunched the Avengers books a few months after I began reading comics as an adult. There were four titles, Avengers and New Avengers written by Brian Michael Bendis; Secret Avengers by Brubaker, Ellis, and then Remender; and Avengers Academy. While the plots contained in Avengers and New Avengers may have been strong, the scripting was terrible. Secret Avengers has been a fabulous book since the beginning. The first arc was fabulous, and seeing Captain America wearing Nova's helmet is a moment that I will always remember in comics! I was happy to see the recent inclusion of Venom on the team. Avengers Academy, therefore, has been my second favorite title out of the four. The writing has been consistent from Gage, but what's even more important is his ability to cut to the issues with a finely tuned scalpel. I agree with the critics who said that Avengers Academy's tie ins to Fear Itself were the strongest books in the entire event (far stronger than the main title)! This is a book that I will absolutely revisit, but as I am already behind two issues I think I will put it on hold for now. I have a feeling, though, that I will pick up the balance of this title very soon.
