Immortal Iron Fist was from the exact same creative team. Nick Spencer's run on Secret Avengers was similar in tone. Maybe Mark Waid's Daredevil too.


Cheers, I’ve added these to my Marvel Unlimited library.

I've just finished Superior Foes of Spider-Man by Spencer which was great.

Is that the series focusing on villains like Boomerang? It sounded pretty good from what I heard of it.

Yeah that's it. Boomerang, Shocker, Beetle, Overdrive and Speed Demon.

I’ll give it a read, not read any of Spencer’s Marvel stuff yet.

Read the first 4 issues of Waid’s Daredevil, more great stuff from Waid. I like these street-level esq stories, nice change of pace from the big battle team ups.

Found an Amazon marketplace seller who was selling a load of rare marvel trades for like £4 each. They cancelled the order like a day after it went through and I was refunded fully. When I spoke to Amazon Support, they gave me a £5 voucher as an apology for the inconvenience.

All but three of the twenty one trades I ordered arrived today.



But.....

After the first order was cancelled I tried ordering some of the same books to test if everything was out of stock. That order was also cancelled and refunded so it's probably arriving tomorrow.

I’ve never really thought comics were for me and though a few of these have been enjoyable enough they’ve on the whole not changed my mind. I just find the story telling lacking and most of these boils down to just ‘Aliens strawberry float people up’, and these are supposed to be the best from 30 years of story telling I find it a bit lacklustre. I’ve generally preferred the ones I’ve read in Digital format so maybe if I do stick with it I should focus on that.

Anyway here’s what I’ve read in the past few weeks and some rankings

Aliens Outbreak: ***
Aliens Labyrinth: ****
Aliens Prometheus Fire and Stone: **
Aliens Fire and Stone: ***
Aliens vs Predator Fire and Stone: ***
Aliens Predator Fire and Stone: ***
Aliens Omega Fire and Stone: **
Aliens Dead Orbit: ***



Aliens Nightmare Asylum: ****

Maybe because I left a gap between getting to this, but really enjoyed this one. As a sequel to Outbreak I found the story a bit more of a satisfying continuation of the Cameron Aliens story, the ending was a nice surprise to and Ripley at the end is just :datass:

Looking forward to moving on to Female War.
