I read the first volume of each a few months ago and I enjoyed them. Art and story were both really good imo

Make sure you get the right Infinity trade by the way, they all seem to contain different stuff. I think you want this one.


Inhumanity does follow on from something which happens halfway through Infinity but they botched the launch of the Inhuman book with multiple delays so it's only just starting now.

New Avengers Volume 2. Volume 3 is post-Infinity and you'll want to buy that.

Haven't read much Nova, but Guardians of the Galaxy isn't. Read the 2008 volume instead, it's much, much better.

I'm not reading it. I think critical consensus is generally favourable though.

First issue was slow but it's been really good since then.

I've enjoyed Superior Spidey and Deadpool. There's more, but I haven't kept up, they are on a box right in front of me waiting to be read :lol:

I thought I was the only person reading ANXF. I'm really enjoying it - always been a fan of Peter David since I used to read Spider-Man 2099 as a kid so it's nice to see him back doing X-Factor stuff.

Incidentally, Spider-Man 2099 has gotten off to a good start, so it might be worth checking that out. It's about to be disrupted by Spider-Verse, but we'll see how it goes.

Whats this Axis thing? Is this the next big event book I assume?

It's an X-Men and Avengers event spinning out of Uncanny Avengers and before that Uncanny X-Force. Amusingly the Avengers and X-Men writers (Hickman and Bendis) are ignoring it.

Ahh ok, weird how writers ignore events in other books

So i'm going to start reading the following titles (only trades)

New Avenger
Avengers
Uncanny Avengers
Superior Spiderman
GOTG
Nova

That'll be good for now and i'll pick up the event books as well
