I've given most of the All-New Marvel NOW! titles a try. Some of them weren't my cup of tea but I am absolutely loving Black Widow, Daredevil, Loki: Agent of Asgard, and She-Hulk. It's too early to tell whether or not I am going to like Hulk or Silver Surfer but I did enjoy their first issues. I plan on picking up Amazing Spider-Man, Cyclops, Rocket Raccoon, and Spider-Man 2099 a try. Everything else just wasn't for me.

Moon Knight, Iron Fist, and Loki best three books from Marvel I have read in a long time. Truly enjoying the hell out of all of them.

I know Marvel doesn't have a great track record with female series but would anyone be interested in seeing a Psylocke series at some point out of curiousity? I say that because she's one of my favorite X characters of all time.

I loved her in the last 2 x-force series but no.

My daughter gets Ms. Marvel and I have enjoyed it so far.
I get Fantastic Four, which I am enjoying and I loved the first issue of Iron Fist.

I don't mind Avengers Undercover, but I want more Zemo and less Arcade dammit.

Black Widow has been great so far.

I've found the first three issues of Ms. Marvel to be amazingly fun.

She-Hulk surprised me with how good it actually is.

Just two issues in and Moon Knight is already a must read for me.

All-New Ghost Rider is the least of the new Marvel Now series I got, but it's still good enough that I care about the main character already.

All-New Invaders, a well written series featuring characters I've cared about for years.

I haven't read issue #3 yet, but good. The series was sold to me as something dealing with young heroes and Zemo and the Masters of Evil. I don't hate Arcade, but Zemo is what sold me on this series.

Loving Moon Knight, Black Widow and Magneto the most. Digging everything overall, though. I've yet to read Silver Surfer or Hulk.

Yeah, I think 3 should make you happy. ;)

As much flak I give Marvel for their relaunches/renumberings/etc. I have to admit that it's seen me pickup a number of books that I wouldn't have otherwise. I was only reading Hawkeye from Marvel
previously.

I haven't tried She-Hulk or Black Widow and will likely trade wait. All-New Invaders, Ghost Rider, and Punisher don't interest me so much.

Ms. Marvel has been a wonderful surprise. Before issue #1 I figured it was just a gimmick "Muslim superhero" story, but the team have handled it in an interesting and innovative way. It's simply a fun and enjoyable book, even though I'm well outside the intended audience.

Magneto has been an interesting take on the character - sort of channeling the Nazi-hunter Magneto from First Class - and the writing has managed to prop up the art, which I find a little too rough/scratchy for my tastes.

I'm not a big fan of Allred's style, but he has really channeled his inner-Kirby on Silver Surfer, and surprisingly I found it worked. Art-aside, issue #1 was OK. I'm at least onboard for #2.

Loki #1 was great, #2 was terrible, #3 was fantastic. Art has been strong for all 3 issues, I just found #2 to be light/lacking on story. #3 was one of my favourite issues of the year so far.

Fantastic Four #1 was unremarkable in every way.

Elektra #1 was a beautiful, beautiful book. Del Mundo absolutely kills it. The story... well... It's not exactly ground breaking stuff. Basically, it's 1995's 'Assassins' film. I'll be back for #2 thanks mostly to Del Mundo.

Secret Avengers has been really, really fun. Ales Kot continues to climb up my list of favourite writers given what he's done here and in Zero.

Moon Knight is pick of the litter for me, however. This is groundbreaking stuff.

As far as everyone saying Moon Knight is a must read, I couldn't agree more, it's a really good book so far.

Agreed, it's one of Marvel's best series right now.
