Is Marvel NOW a full on jumping on point for all Marvel books? I feel like some books continued on from where they were prior to the Marvel NOW thing. I want to say maybe X-Force?

It's not a reboot like the New 52 was for DC. Just a relaunch. It is a good jumping on point, though.

X-Force didn't continue on.

Most all individual story arcs were wrapped and and new ones started but there weren't any massive continuity changes or anything like that to any of the books or characters. Several of Remenders plot points from X-Force have carried over to his Avengers work now.

OK, what about other books? Or did every book on the line relaunch? I guess that's what my initial question was supposed to be.

Uncanny X-Force carried one or two ideas over from the previous series but the current series and Remender's couldn't be more different.

As far as the rest of Marvel NOW is concerned, they attempted to make each of the books that I read or am currently reading accessible to new readers. However, unlike DC, they didn't do this at the expense of the people who were already reading their books on a monthly basis. Pretty much anything that you would need to know is available on the recap page at the beginning of the book or accessible on Wikipedia.

No, not everything relaunched. The ones that relaunched (or were brand new books) just started with a new storyline. The ones that didn't relaunch continued on with the status quo they previously had.

Unless you're going by Spektre's definition, in which case it was one of about a billion reboots each time one of the characters did something slightly off kilter.

Daredevil didn't relaunch with Marvel Now. Neither did a few X-books.

OK, so Amazing Spider-man didn't relaunch for example. So what's a good jumping on point for it as relates to the timing of Marvel NOW?

Amazing Spider-Man ended last year.

Superior Spider-Man was the Marvel NOW! relaunch.

What about Daredevil then? Why didn't they just relaunch everything at once :smt013
