I hate the modern event book style where there's one event mini and all of the series kind of tread water exploring tangents of that story while the event goes on. It makes the whole thing seem way too long and convoluted.
I am reading them and the Avengers stuff, yes not his but.., I have little problem with related title crossovers, but the Infinity stuff is starting to bother me as it seems tied up with Avengers and Nova... GotG... UGH!
All-New X-Men is a fav title right now, but he looses good artists on it... I'm gone. Read this plot before in the early nineties in Legion of Super-Heroes.
I've got a ton of Marvel titles on my tablet that I'm slowly catching up on while also trying to keep up. All the X-Titles, Avengers titles, Superior Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, FF titles, Fearless Defenders, Thunderbolts.... I think the only title I'm not bothering much with in relation is the A+X title as it seems fluff. Nice art but nothing moving the characters forward.
It's sad, I nearly catch up on a title and it gets canceled. Red She-Hulk, Journey Into Mystery, Scarlet Spider (still have to start reading it)...
I wish they'd stay away from the events and focus and I mean solidly focus on each title for a couple of years at least. Sure, when there are strong connections, crossover it it works, like Uncanny X-Men with All-New X-Men. But stop the madness.
Oh yeah, you read that, I am enjoying a Bendis title.
