I cannot believe how much I want this series. I'm not a big Venom fan at all, but something about this works for me.

I've always been a fan of Venom--I still have fond memories of the Lethal Protector mini series coming out when I was in either grade or middle school. I never really got into the other symbiote characters, but I always have a soft spot for Venom.

Uncanny X-Force is book of the week every time it comes out, but it's kind of not fair.

I bought the first issue and thought it was alright and then kind of forgot about the book. What issue is up to now? I'll hunt down back issues if it's really that good.

Be warned, there are people who don't think that Franken-Castle is the best Non-Moz superhero book of the past decade. This may be you. In which case, Uncanny X-Force's sheer perfection may not be the right fit.

I'll give it a shot, you and krypt0nian both seem to have similar tastes to myself and I trust your recommendations.
Now it has been forever since I read an X-book regularly--why does Archangel shift between human with bird wings Warren and blue skinned techno-organic Death Warren?

two questions before I head to the shop.

Did anyone pick up that Venom Deadpool one shot and was it worth it?

Was the new Silver Surfer any good?

Original he was hiding it from others, that and I think it makes him more bloodthirsty.

He's always been able to do it? The last I saw of Archangel he was blue skinned techno-organic Death Warren, it's been that long since I've read X-Men comics.

Well I just read final crisis and can safely say I didn't have a clue on to what the hell went on lol.

Bullets back in time and other BS including Demi gods and that. Bear in mind these are the first comics I've read since I'm trying to properly get into reading comics again.

Final Crisis may not have been the best jumping in point if you're not familiar with the characters. Remember wikipedia and dc.wikia.com are your friend.

Loki #3 was such a beautifully written and drawn book. I love it when they really nail the mythological feel.

Thunderbolts was disposable punchy fun, with Juggernaut vs. Hyperion.

Daredevil Reborn was a good read, but very much felt like the middle of a story.

You don't like Alpha Flight?

i read both thunderbolts and avengers academy, and while i love thunderbolts, avengers academy is my favorite book of the week so far. that exchange between tasky and finesse was awfully touching in the end.
