And I would be happy to do you a favor and take them off of your hands. I never read New X-Men, but I haven't been disappointed by anything from Morrison yet.

Secret Warriors
Hickman's Fantastic 4/FF
Brubaker's Captain America
Fraction's Invincible Iron Man
Annihilation/Annihilation: Conquest/Nova/Guardians of the Galaxy/War of Kings/Reign of Kings/Thanos Initiative
Immortal Iron Fist
Incredible Herc

Good list!

Brubaker's Cap was EPIC. Hands down one of my favourite comic runs of all time.

Hickman's FF was EPIC in scope and you have to read it all! So good.

I'd also throw Peter David's X-Factor. it pretty much stays away from the rest of the X books with minimal tie ins and is a GREAT read!

All of this (trust me, if you get War of Kings, certain parts of Hickman's FF will make waaaaay more sense)

I'd also recommend Brubaker's Daredevil. The more it goes on, the more it reads like Serpico. It's a brilliant, underrated part of the 2005-2008 output.

Mark Waid's Fantastic Four, which is now out in 4 softcovers (they clock in round 29.99 US, which isn't too bad).

And since we're talking PAD, he also did a Madrox mini few years back with Pablo Raimondi, who also drew Bru's Books of Doom (whihc is also highly recommended--ask Zechs about this one)

Cosmic Marvel. If you're not willing to shell out big bucks for Marvel Masterworks, try the Essential vols of Warlock (came out last August, 1 volume, everything from his creation up to the petrification of Thanos, itself a fun and introspective issue), Captain Marvel ...I think there's also some Essential Nova out there IIRC?

Finally, and this is a good one to end on:

SHIELD.

First by Hickman. Then...STERANKO.

that's really all you need to know. A new printing of the Steranko SHIELD stuff is also coming in like October.

Just FYI Hickman's SHIELD is incomplete. The first six issues came out in collected format but the second volume ended with issue 4 and was never collected. Still its a very pretty book.

Steranko's Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD is some of the best comics ever created. I managed to grab an edition from 2000 really cheap and realized all the hype was truth!

I guess when you ask people to help catch you up on 15 years of good marvel stories, you are going to have lots and lots of books listed. I think that I am most upset with the cosmic books being out of print.

Yeah, there have been a lot of good things in 15 years but everyone's tastes are always different. I like to give people a couple suggestions and see where they go from there. I just believe half the fun of discovering something is discovering it on your own.

I recommend Morrison's New X-Men. And Whedon and Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men.

Are the 12 volumes of Fraction's Invincible Iron Man worth $100 for the harcover?

And now you wish you could have bought everything for 100?
