There's a lot of intricate patterns and interplay between the Century books and each other. I love the pulp feeling in the early runs too though.
I recently re-read Morrison's New X-Men run and thought, eh, not as great as I'd remembered it. Good though for X-Men comics. Hell, great for X-Men comics, I guess.
I think I'll sell the run though.
Yeah I definitely caught a lot of stuff going on between books. I also enjoyed the stuff that came up from the Black Dossier (that was the one with 3D glasses). Without the Jess Nevins annotations, I'm pretty much in the dark as to what comes from where though. I can pick up a few things here and there. Did anyone catch the LOST reference?
New X-Men is my favourite X-Men! Although I definitely feel you on that Morrison thing. I've noticed that a lot of his work doesn't hold up well. I recently re-read the Invisibles and I got absolutely nothing out of it. I sold my books as I felt I had no use for them. I used to swear by that series.
