Due to the insanity of busy life and the fact that I can't bring myself to buy comics anywhere other than Midtown Comics (you get 20 bucks off for every 100 bucks you spend! That's a 20% discount!) because I super have no moneys, Ive becoming increasingly behind on my comics. Like...bad news bears, guys. And I've come to the realization that I may need to give up a few titles. So I'm looking to you all for advice, assuming you are probably not as behind as I am and know which titles are worth keeping with.
So here I present the titles I read as of a couple months ago. Please tell me which ones to stick with and which ones to drop!
First up, the ones I'm sticking with no matter what, to give you an idea of what I like
Buffy - I'm sticking with this one no matter what, but I'm two issues behind! SACRILEGE!
X-Factor - I'm, dear lord, 3-4 issues behind now. I don't even know the thing that happens that's all big and crazy! I got shit for this from not only EruditeChick, but from PETER DAVID HIMSELF.
Fables/Jack of Fables/Scott Pilgrim/Powers/Preacher - All of these I read in book form, not comic form, and will not be abandoning them anytime soon. I'm on book 4 of Scott Pilgrim, book 4 of Powers, book 6 of Preacher (which is over now, right?) and am waiting for book 12 of Fables to grace me with its brilliant presence
Invincible Iron Man - I'm I like 4 or 5 issues behind - I've only read the first arc - but I liked it, it's the only Iron Man title I read, I enjoy Matt Fraction, so, I'm sticking with it
Runaways - In the hopes that Brian or Joss return
The titles I'm on the fence about, after the jump!!!
The X-Men Titles
Now these are all crossovery, so much so that now I'm totally confused and have no idea how far behind I am. Do I stick with any of these?
and all those like, X-Men: Worlds Apart, X-Men: A bunch of vignettes, X-Men: Crazy shit is happening! Is Cable even in this universe anymore? What universe is Astonishing X-Men in? Will Joss ever return? Are any of them in the same universe anymore? Should I bother continuing to read any of these? What crossover are we on now? Which ones have the Prop X thing happening, cause I'll read that. Halp!
Dark Reign Crossover
Now, I read all of Secret Invasion. ALL of Secret Invasion. Every damn crossover that EXISTED, I read. I was happy to say goodbye to Captain Britain, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova, New Warriors or whatever and more, but didn't wanna stop reading the storyline completely. So I picked up like, Dark Avengers and a couple Dark Reign crossover stories, sticking with Mighty Avengers & New Avengers, but now I'm so behind and haven't even read them yet, so I ask you - is it worth it to get into the whole damn thing? Someone who is reading these - is it worth it? Thunderbolts, War Machine, etc - should I pick them up?
It's Peter David and I love Peter David! I'm 3-4 issues behind. Started reading it when it crossed over with X-Factor and quite liked it, but would I like it sans X-Factor?
Started reading during Secret Invasion and liked, so thought I'd continue. Again, a few issues behind and not sure it's worth it.
Again, many issues behind, but loved what I've read. Should I continue? Oh god, it's apparently tied into Dark Reign also. What's happening?!!?!
Punisher: War Zone mini series by Ennis & Dillon
I love Preacher, so I picked up #1 of this Punisher title, never read it, and now I have #1, #3 and #4, I think. Is this title worth it to seek out the missing #2, #5 and #6? I imagine it must be awesome, but, I need advice.
I was also loving X-Men Noir & X-Men/Spiderman and was looking forward to seeking out Spiderman Noir, but they came out so long ago, who knows what the hell is going on now.
Any titles I need to add here? Anything that will excite me as much as Fables does?
