I don’t know if I have ran down my list of comic books lately if ever and I am having a case of can’t focus on work until my post is done so lets all see what I spend my comic book dollars on each month.
Iron Man – duh. No brainer for me right. Would like to see a War Machine reboot but as near as I can tell we are no joy that title right now.
Magician – This is one of my favorite novels of all time and I was hankering to read it but it is not in digital from that I can find anywhere expect comic book form. It has done its run and I could just buy it all at once but I am trying to slow roll it to myself. I have started picking up speed however as the story starts to hit major plot points.
Avengers/ New Avengers – this one is strange. I am not a big Avengers fan. But I a enjoying these two book runs. The New Avengers I am digging over the other but they are kinda Iron Man books 2 and 3.
Guardians of the Galaxy – I started reading some of the older copies thanks to some of the Marvel Mondays at comixology.com. They had some Thanos story arc sales and picked them up while they were cheep and started to fall for the book. And when the Marvel Now reboot started I thought why not, it is nice to have a read where shit is happening all over NOT earth all the time. Go break some shit where my taxes are not paying to fix it!
All New X-men/ X-men – Again I am not a huge X-man fan, although I also like Wolverine and the X-men but I am waiting and picking those up post new sale price. But I do like this All-New X-man run. Back in the day when I was first buying Comics Marvel did a reprint of the OG Xmen books. And I loved the OG team. This new story line where the OG team is pulled into todays world is fun times. The new X-men run I picked up for all the ladies. I don’t know a ton about some of these characters but other then Storm I dig them all and want to see them in action more and you can’t have more Girl action then an all girl X-men run. When they return to the mixed team I may or may not stick with them, IDK…
Thunderbolts – This is another cheep book even new, 2.99, and has Venom, DeadPool, the Punisher and Red Hulk all in one book. Oh and Electra who is okay I guess??
Dresden Files – I have become a Dresden fan, the novels are amazing so a monthly book with a new story … take my money.
LookOuts – this was a pointed out to me by one of the Penny Arcade guys and it is good. Like DnD with kids and blood good.
Saga – Think I have talked about this one before, think Lexx or a dirty Farescape book. It is very good but kind of a spaz on new book schedule and that might cost it a regular buyer and it might become a once a year book buy for me.
Buffy/Angel & Faith/Willow/Spike – Do I need to talk about these? They are no brainers.
Age of Ultron/ Thanos Rising – these are story arc books AoU is about to wrap up I think and I can read about Thanos all day he is quickly becoming my favorite villain of all time. Before him it was Carnage and the Shredder. Think about that…
TMNT/TMNT–Villains – Okay so the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles run is amazing. Totally worth the read every month. Now they do a lot of spin offs on the turtle run, lots of stand alones or 2-4 book story arcs. Most of them I skip, because they are about the heros and I know a lot about them from the books, However, my love for villains might be showing again because as soon as I saw the TMNT-Villains run I jumped on it.
Lastly my Farscape run has finished, damn it. I really liked that book. I haven’t picked up anything to fill that Sci-Fi niche But maybe once all these arc books have finished and I have powered through the back log of the Magician assuming they didn’t do the next book, I might try the new time line StarTrek book. IDK?
Hope the lack of DDo talk wasn’t too boring for you. <3s
