(Realise there's a 'where should I start thread' but I've got a tonne of questions and thought they'd stand a better chance of being answered in a separate thread.)
So, haven't read any comics in years, and even then all I've read are some books/major events like Civil War, Dark Avengers, World War Hulk: X-Men, Messiah Complex, House of M so I have a slight idea of events/timelines.
Been wanting to get into it properly for a while though and read something ongoing. Just finished reading the Apocalypse Situation and really enjoyed it so I'm thinking of going with Uncanny X-Force but I'm a bit worried it'll end up like the last series I was interested in (Dark Avengers) and end pretty quickly. Impossible to say I imagine but do people think it'll be something that goes on for a while? I'd also like to read some X-Men but no idea which series to choose, X-Men/Astonishing/Uncanny/whatever else there is. I guess I'd prefer the series parallel to Uncanny X-Force unless there's another that's significantly better.
Uncanny X-Force, finishing soon or long lasting ongoing series?
How many X-Men series are there?
Which would you recommend I read alongside X-Force?
Any necessary back reading?
Think that's all for now, thanks a lot in advance.
