New Marvel NOW! series

Postby Keb » Thu Apr 24, 2014 9:55 am

Which ones are you guys reading (if any)? I picked up Moon Knight, Fantastic 4, and All-New Invaders. I could do without the Invaders series as it's boring me and I don't care for the characters. I feel the same way about the F4 series but I know that will build up to something bigger. Love the Moon Knight two issues in. It feels like classic Warren Ellis.

I've grabbed those and a number of others, but I've yet to get to reading them so far.

Just skimming them, I'd say Moon Knight is probably amongst the better while Ms Marvel is among the mediocre.

Mostly looking forward to Alan Davis' Hulk series.

Wish I could be of more help here.

dropped Invaders and Nightcrawler already
FF may not be far behind
Iron Fist was OK, but needs to get better fast or will be dropped
Silver Surfer had a strong first issue
New Warriors, Avengers Undercover, and Wolvy & the X-Men have been really good so far
LOVING She-Hulk
LOVING Black Widow
LOVING Avengers World
LOVING Amazing X-Men

really looking forward to the Alan Davis Hulk and Cyclops

Moon Knight
She Hulk
Nightcrawler
Silver Surfer
New Warriors
Avengers World
Amazing X-Men
Daredevil

The only two I'm considering dropping right now is New Warriors and Avengers World. The only reason I got the first one is because I like the High Evolutionary a lot as a character. Avengers World isn't really doing anything for me, neither is Avengers or Uncanny Avengers, truth to tell. The only book about the team that I'm really enjoying right now is Mighty.

I would probably drop Amazing X-Men too if it wasn't for the fact it appears Colossus is showing up soon.

Daredevil
Silver Surfer
Ms. Marvel
Captain Marvel
Black Widow
Avengers Undercover
She-Hulk
Amazing X-Men
X-Force
Fantastic Four
Wolverine and the X-Men

X-Force is the only title I'm dropping. The rest I'm enjoying enough to keep reading.

I haven't had a chance to read Hulk, Inhuman, Elektra or All-New Ultimates yet.

Daredevil
Silver Surfer
Loki
She-Hulk
Black Widow
Avengers World
Amazing X-Men
Wolverine and the X-Men
New Warriors

...and I'm liking all of them. I'd say DD, She-Hulk and Black Widow are the pick of the bunch so far, but they're all worth checking out. I haven't read Nightcrawler #1 yet, though I'm keeping my fingers crossed for it.

What turned you against Invaders? You were so excited about it last September.

Silver Surfer is good so far?

Ms. Marvel looks like another one of those "experimental" press-grabbing 12-issue runs.

frankly? it's kinda boring so far. I was trying to hold out for Spitfire and Union Jack to show up and couldn't even make it that long. i'll give it another look once the Marvel Unlimited app gets it, but just couldn't justify $4 a pop if that's all Robinson was giving me.

Surfer's decent if you can get past him speaking like he's a Bendis character.

You guys are also leaving out Punisher and Magneto, both very decent books. Yeah Marvel is kicking ass right now. It's kind of ridiculous.
