It's STILL not out over here? That's been years now.

Yep, still only out in the US. I can only imagine it's issues with licensing/distribution with some of the comic publishers outside of the US, because surely Amazon wouldn't want to be leaving money on the table like that.

Also take a look at Comixology, they have lots of great stuff and have really good sales.

The thing to know is if you have a smaller tablet screen than you might be zooming in and out a lot to view a full page, although the inbuilt software is clever in jumping from one frame to another if you want and filling the screen making it easy to read. A laptop could work well too.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I'm not looking to sign-up to anything right now but hopefully will take a look in a few months' time. I'll probably be using tablet (iPad mini).

ComiXology has an Image Sci-Fi sale on at the moment.

Was looking at some stuff earlier in the week as I fancied trying out some new comics. Took the plunge on a few different series, Paper Girls, Bitch Planet and Saga.

A massive sale on Marvel classic series on ComiXology now. Over 90% off across a host of series.

I know a lot of it is probably badly dated but I might dip in to see some origins of stuff we see in the films. Anyone got any recommendations?

A lot of the stuff in the films is based on newer runs and I don't think a lot of that old stuff is actually that good, but the early Avengers stuff, Stan Lee & Jack Kirby's Thor and Steve Ditko's Dr Strange are all decent. Chris Claremeont's Uncanny X-Men stuff is good too.

Dr Strange is actually the one I was drawn to.

Question, I fancy going back and reading some 90’s Marvel starting with the Onslaught storyline, what issues should I start with where they start building that storyline up?

These guys have pretty good reading orders, especially for x-men. I worked my way through the 80s x-men using their help earlier this year.

I always thought the Onslaught stuff was very underrated, I remember absolutely loving it as a kid then growing up and finding out it had been shat all over. Obviously the Heroes Reborn stuff was a lot of rubbish but I maintain the core series was fun!

Cheers!

Yeah I read the Onslaught stuff years and years ago when the UK reprint comics had it, I remember really liking it and it being a huge deal (think it was the first big company wide event I had ever read)

Age of Apocalypse was the highlight of the X-Men back then. Unlike most comic events they were happy to kill off multiple characters each issue. It also introduced Sugarman and some of the best character moments for established heroes and villians. It's ridiculously dark but it's perfect. Scott and Jean, Mr Sinister, Banshee, Sabertooth, Blink and the X-Man all shine in this.

Fatal Attractions is also great, basically Magneto goes too far and the X-Men have to go to his base and deal with him. Massive consequences for Wolverine and Magneto. It also sets the stage for Onslaught and the version of wolverine seen in that.

Kieron Gillen's Eternals #1 is out today. Will see how long I can last with this until I get fed up of him writing everyone as a smug bellend like he does in everything else.

Mori I'm up to date on my DoX trades, what else do I need to buy? I've just ordered Empyre X men because it's part written by Hickman. Is X of Swords collected in the DoX volumes or do I need to buy the separate collection?

If it's too late to cancel you're not going to want to hear this but the Empyre X-Men issues will be collected in Dawn of X too. I'm expecting X of Swords will too, that would be Dawn of X 17.

Empyre X-Men is Dawn of X 13 and 14 according to Wikipedia and the X of Swords prelude issues are in Dawn of X 16.

Ah ok, order cancelled. The pacing on these DoX releases has been all over the place.

Is Fatal Attractions the one where Magneto rips the adamantium out of Wolverine’s bones and turns him into this weird feral thing for about two years?

Yep that's the one. One of the truly shocking comic book moments. Wolverine was interesting for a while then went full feral. The reveal of his bone claws in the danger room was great too.
