My interest in Marvel has been absolute zero since Secret Wars ended, the line hasn't appealed to me at all ever since. I really, really want Infamous Iron Man to be good.

But... Bendis...

Bendis has written a decent Doom from what I've read, so I expect this book to be one of his better books.

Hopefully something is as surprisingly good as Vision was in ANAD.

Be interesting to see what they do with Rider's return, though I'm not a fan of the guy writing Nova.

Neither. The new guy (loveness) hasn't done much but I didn't care for his Groot run.

I have faith in Loveness. Dude is a really talented comedian apart from his work in comics.

so other than Vision and Moon Knight what are some of the other good ANAD books? are the Bendis Iron Man books good? I pretty much only keep up to date with ASM and then trade wait on everything else.

Ultimates, Doctor Strange and Hercules/Gods of War were all good.

EDIT: Somehow forgot Sam Wilson Captain America. Solid book outside of some early meandering.

Still in for ANAD Avengers and Renew Your Vows. Especially the latter. Champions seems like fun too.

The Totally Awesome Hulk will continue too, right? I enjoy Chulk.

The only one I'm really interested in is RYV. But I have no idea how well a Spider-Family AU can do in today's market.

I have some interest in Jessica Jones, Champions, and a few others.

Seems most of the Marvel books I read will be continuations from ANAD Marvel like USAvengers and Ultimates2.

Ms. Marvel continues to be great, the latest issue in particular is perhaps the best single issue since the first arc concluded. While it definitely helps that the emotional punch to one's heart has been winding up over the past few issues, it doesn't make the issue, when taken on its own, hit any less hard when it lets loose. I have no idea how issue 6 of Moon Knight fared but I gave up on it after the fifth one when it became clear Lemire wasn't interested in writing the next chapter in Marc's life but rather a massive retconning of the character and his supporting cast back to the Doug Moench days of mystery while missing the reason why Moench's run works, namely that the pacing was solid and the characters were interesting.. Artwork's amazing, mind, Smallwood deserves more work than he gets.

On the topic of books i'm looking forward to: Champions and Infamous Iron Man look promising based on the previews and Gwenpool looks like a lot of fun.

I just finished it a little while ago. Great issue. It also transitions into a pretty organic change in direction for Kamala. Can't wait for the next issue.
 
wait did Kaare Andrews have anything to do with that last terrible-ass iron fist mini? god that was bad

If you're talking about the abysmal Iron Fist: The Living Weapon, yes I'm afraid it's the same writer.

One of the few books, if not the only book, I'm definitely not going to even try.

Captain America: Sam Wilson. The first arc gets kind of muddied with werewolf goofiness but since then it's been top-tier, clear-sailing goodness.

Like, Sam is now my Cap, now and forever. Dude's the man.

Absolutely. The way Spencer has written him there's no way he can ever go back to being just Falcon. He's Captain America forever. Amazing book.

I haven't really read comics in years now but I'm absolutely going to pick up that Nova comic if its actually Richard. The Gamora "origin" story sounds nice as well but I'm not sure I would want to read the Star-Lord one. Among other reasons I stopped reading GotG is because it felt too focused on Earth instead of the Galaxy. So Peter and the other Guardians being stuck on Earth is still not what I'm looking for ... I hope the new writers can get them back together soon and far, far away from earth without anyone from earth tagging along.

Sam Cap is great. One of the surprising ANAD books; I never found Sam that interesting, but him being Cap and how he handles the shield is great. Good art as well.

hot hot hanuman-on-man action
i want to read some new Dr Strange but want to wait until Aaron is done with his run.

is yesterday'/ Annual a stand alone issue or does it spoil the current Strange run?
 
Solo and Foolkiller and Slapstick get their own books, meanwhile my boy Taskmaster is still digging for scraps.


Come on, Marvel! He's by far the coolest mercenary!

Yeah, I'm conflicted on the new Guardians stuff, because the creative teams are strong, but some of the books aren't focusing on space.
how did I not know mark waid and chris samnee were on black widow? instabuy

edit: april 4th for vol. 2...

yay waiting
Well there's only six issues out at the moment.

The annual is stand alone, also not written by Aaron.

EDIT: Well sort of stand alone. It has a couple of stories talking about what happened to other sorcerers other then Strange during the recent ark. Honestly it wasn't very good and can be skipped.

Wow I disagree. I thought the annual was a lot of fun and the tone of it was delightful. Yes it wasn't Aaron who wrote it but I would gladly read a series in that tone.

Why does he wear the mask!?
Another relaunch that does fucking nothing for long time readers, and doesn't entice new readers to start reading.
 
I've been majorly disappointed by Marvel recently. Basically CW2 sucked the fun out of most of the line for me. I used to have 3-4 Marvel books for every 1 DC book but since Rebirth and CW2 it has switched and I'm buying 4 DC books for every 1 Marvel book. Really hope this stuff is good but there relaunches have been a whole load of nothing lately.
