I just remembered. I was thinking of Secret Avengers actually.

He's going to add another 17 plot-building mysteries to the 19 that Hickman already has going.

New Avengers, though: wow. I mean, I enjoy Avengers a great deal but have never really liked the idea of the Illuminati, which is why I gave this a miss. But #1 was good enough to make me buy and download #2-4 and immediately add the book to my pull. What a great book. Seriously, if DC are wondering why they're floundering just now they need to check this, All-New X-Men, Daredevil and Hawkguy to see how things are done.


Marvel NOW has been better than the DC relaunch.

I'd recommend FF and, of course, Young Avengers.

Young Avengers is turrible.

FF and Fantastic Four both great though.

I already get both those titles. All said, my Marvel pull list is currently 15 titles, as compared to five (soon four) from DC

New Avengers was the most popular book in the Marvel NOW survey, so I'm glad you're buying it.

I'm another of those people that hated #1 of NA but loved everything since. I really like where Hickman is taking the franchise.

I had a similar moment last week, Nieto, welcome to Hickmanville :)

Also, picked up the Hawkguy trade today. Never thought much of Fraction before, but I am loving every page of this. Loving it!

Also, Young Avengers. It gets my highest rating ever: tits.

Just read some of the other marvel now #1s. Mostly didn't give a shit for them.

Batman, Batwoman, Detective Comics and Earth 2. I will probably pick up Snyder and Lee's Superman book as well, though.

Not reading Wonder Woman?

I'd really recommend almost everything Hickman has done. I really think he's been Marvel's best writer over the past 2-3 years.

FF has been tremendously boring since he left it.
