I just got in Marvel Masterworks: The Defenders vol.2. I can't wait to read the Avengers/Defenders War. I wish the prices on the Masterworks weren't so damn high.

They're absurdly expensive. I usually wait for the tpb edition of the Marvel Masterworks.

Yeah, I've been picking mine up off ebay. No way am I paying $50-70. You can get a lot of these for around $20.

I read all of Infinity back-to-back - the main A/NA/INF books at least - as singles too. I think it was about as good as a Big Two crossover event can be. I think Hickman is one of the best writers working on a major A-lister title at the moment.

Currently starting Morrison's Animal Man Omnibus. First 4-issue arc was great, the two one shots after that are a bit all over the place.

I liked the Fantastic Four epic story arc better than INFINITY, but INFINITY had its moments. Hickmans definitely better than most if not all the writers at Marvel, but he isnt flawless. Wish theyd allow him to focus on just one or two titles so the quality isnt hurt.

I don't really use ebay but I would totally pay 20 bucks for those books.

Lots of fun. Great to see Amadeus Cho again. Does the story of the dark walker continue in savage wolverine, or elsewhere?
Next up, Infinity Gauntlet.

Yeah, it was fun. I don't know why so many people didn't feel satisfied by Cho's story.

They'll make way more sense as the story progresses.

Oh yeah, and Amadeus Cho totally loved being surrounded by attractive women with large boobs.

Cause it has an ending that is a prelude to something else, maybe?

Issue #14, I'm getting it now. Although the whole 'fourth wall' twist was spoilt for me years ago, it's fun watching it develop.

Really? I didn't see it like that. To me it was just Frank Cho's vision of Wolverine, both as a writer and artist. Great images, a good sense of humor and pure adventure.

Of course the last issue of Savage Wolverine I read was # 5, so I have no idea if the story is continued or not by the other creative teams.
