necrogenesis wrote:2. New Warriors - As chance would have it, the New Warriors' first appearance is in Thor 411, which is one of the issues I recently got. I haven't read it yet, but if I like the story, I might just end up checking out the rest of the series. Glad to hear two sources say it is good.
is that the series where Vermin is also terrorizing the city?? (dragging innocent women down manholes into the sewer???????).
X-Force was one of my least favorite runs from this era. So if you like that stuff, it only gets better, IMHO. You are certainly right about the crossovers. Not only are there the annual crossovers (Inferno, X-Cutioner's Song, Age of Apocalypse, etc), but after AoA, the books have storylines running back and forth between the titles almost at random. If you really dig the franchise, you can't go wrong with starting at Essential X-Men vol. 01 and working your way forwardnecrogenesis wrote:X-Force, X-Men, etc. - So I bought the first 105 issues (!!) of X-Force and it's pretty good so far. I'm up to issue 16 or so, but that's where my problem starts. The X titles seem to have a lot of crossovers with each other, and I'm not quite ready to go searching for all the tie-ins at the moment. I think I could spend a small fortune (or a large one) getting involved in the X universe. I believe that I will hold off on buying anymore X titles until I finish up my cosmic titles. Spending money on both is a bit much for me at the moment.
Iron Man doesn't have a whole lot of classic runs, despite having his own series for the better part of 50 years. I would go with Uthor's suggestion of the new series written by Matt Fraction. The Extremis TPB is also a beautiful book.necrogenesis wrote:Iron Man - I loved the movie and want more, but I don't like what I've seen of most of Iron Man's villians. What goes on in his comics?
I was never that interested in the Hulk and only got hooked on the title because I picked up a random issue and really enjoyed Peter David's writing. He wrote a lot of interesting stories about the inner psychological conflicts between Bruce Banner and the various aspects of the Hulk. I like that the character who is most known for solving things by smashing them has an inner battle that he can't solve with his fists.necrogenesis wrote:Incredible Hulk - I'm not a big fan of the Hulk. I used to like the live action show a lot as a kid, but there's only so much of that I can take now. The smarter Hulk doesn't really appeal to me at all. I just don't see much to like about this character, except when he is the bad guy in someone else's book. What are his upsides?
Madkap has the scoop for you there. John Byrne was really on fire in the 80's, and the first 28 issues of Alpha Flight are a great example of Byrne in his prime.necrogenesis wrote:Alpha Flight - I think they are Canadian. That's about the extent of my knowledge of them. Tell me more!
