Daredevil vol. 2, #16-19, 26-50, 56-60
Daredevil vol. 2, #61-81; What If...Karen Page Had Lived; Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #6-8

It's a really great run.

I'd recommend picking up Mr Miracle which is fantastic.

What's with all the gaps in the issues?

Also, Mister Miracle is so good. Tom King is a genius.


#51- 55 was a fill-in Echo origin story written by David Mack, I guess to give Bendis some time to get ahead. #16-19 was the first Daredevil story Bendis did but it's not really the start of the run.

I do get the impression that Marvel comics are going to be neglected for some time to come while their film arm takes up most of the focus.

Yes :lol:

Gabby (no idea who she was, she's in All-New Wolverine)
X-23 (looks like she's about to spew)
Nightcrawler (also looks like he's about to spew)
Namor (why Marvel are still desperate to insist he's a mutant I don't know)
Gentle (never heard of him in my life, had to goggle him)
Trinary (new character)

Big fan of them announcing Jean's new book and entire team before the event about her return has even begun.

I’m massively out of the loop with comics in general and have never really followed DC but am I right in my understanding that they are bringing/have already brought back Watchmen in some capacity as part of the regular DC Universe?

Axel Alonso is gone from Marvel and they've got a new editor-in-chief. "Mutually parted ways" which sounds to me like he was pushed out. Not surprised after the past few years, I bet all the Secret Empire press and the shambolic Legacy stuff was the last straw.

I read Secret Empire today. What a load of strawberry floating gooseberry fool that was.
The story wasn't all that interesting but it's the EPIC style of the writing that makes the whole thing really stink.


"Captain America took to the skies, like a legendary falcon or summat, and every one of the Marvel heroes, who are like god's and stuff, gazed towards the heavens to watch him soar like a big mythical bird thing. And everything that was happening was really, really important"


The whole thing is written with a real head up its own arse tone to try and get across just how big a deal everything is but it just comes across as try hard guff. If there was half as much scene setting writing it'd actually be a better book.





Anyway, what's the reading order for Secret Wars?

Do you mean just Secret Wars or the Avenger run before it as well? If it's just Secret Wars then do by this:
Secret Wars #0-4, Thors #1-3, Secret Wars #5, Siege Vol. 2 #1-3, Secret Wars #6, Siege Vol. 2 #4, Thors #4, Secret Wars #7-9, and then go back and read whatever tie-ins interest you.

If it's the whole Avengers run as well then go by this first:

Definitely read Hickman's Avengers run before Secret Wars. And Fantastic Four before that.

Is there a list of printed TPBs anywhere for that? Might try and pick them all up in the new year, I've not really heard anything bad about Hickman's run on the Avengers/Secret Wars.
