Dunno about them but Runaways was good.

I really wanted to like Aaron's Avengers run because it has a good line up, but I’ve read issue 5 now and it's still really boring me. Lots of info dump about Celestials, lots of disjointed hoping around, few interesting character moments. I’m hoping the second arc will be better, but so far, I’m seriously considering dropping it, which is saying something from me, considering it’s a book with Iron Man, Cap and Captain Marvel on the same team.

On the plus side, Quicksilver's mini has been good so far and Life of Captain Marvel is off to a good start.

I love anything to do with the Celestials so I'm all in on his Avengers so far. Thor has been excellent too.

Remember Wolverine's new "Hot Claw" power?

Well they're sentient, fueled by his rage and he can use them to shoot fire

That's a whole lot of stupid.

I'm loving Bendis on Action Comics, but his Superman is much weaker.

Does anyone read Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Mighty Morphin Power Rangers? I’ve read the first volume of each ages ago but thinking of starting them again and picking up a few of the more recent GN’s

I genuinely have about 3-4 months worth of comics to catch up on from my Comixology subs.

I've not read any Ghostbusters or Power Rangers, but I read just about all the TMNT stuff that's been released up until a year or two ago.

It can be up and down in places, but in general is definitely worth reading.

TMNT has a few periods to look at.

The original Eastman and Laird runs from the beginning, where it was published by Mirage. This ran from 1984 to 1993.
The Image comics run, which I don't think had any direct involvement from Eastman and Laird. It was a short lived series and only lasted 23 issues from 96 to 98.
Mirage revived the series in 2001, picking up where their earlier run had ended and would put out books until 2010
IDW publishes the current incarnation which was relaunched with Kevin Eastman's involvement in 2011 and is still going today. It's probably my favourite run of the series so far. There's even a crossover event or two with other IDW books (Including Ghostbusters).

If you're wanting to read TMNT I would recommend the IDW stuff first, if not then go for the Mirage books if you can find them. Bear in mind that the really early books are very much representative of their "Indie" roots and the tone and style changes dramatically over the years.

I enjoyed reading them all though.

Check out some of our stuff!

I’ve heard good things about the IDW stuff so I will start with that run and go from there.

MMPR seems to be highly rated which is what is making me think about checking it out. Ghostbusters I got about 8 issues into it and really liked it but then stopped reading and never went back.

I haven't bought any comics in weeks. Haven't been feeling it with any of the current runs for stuff I usually read (Avengers, Iron Man, Cap's okay). Thinking of trying something else. I heard Squirrel Girl has been very good? Has anyone been reading Soule's Daredevil? Usually a big fan of Matt but haven't read since Waid.
