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

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.

So Cyclops is back in the annual!

Basically has him reset back a few years and go "Yeah I was wrong because...um...reasons"

Any "Cyclops was right" fans are not going to get the more nuanced (And difficult) discussions they've wanted since AvX through AvI

Cyclops was wrong and a monster. He's even said so himself!

It's just an extension of the "designated villain" Marvel's been pushing for years


Cue Mafro and some bait posts/trolling ;) (Love you)

:lol: Still haven't read any comics since July or something. Haven't been keeping up with the news either since I only really got that from Bleeding Cool but they started giving a platform to alt-right dickheads so I stopped visiting.

I haven't read comics in ages (sometime between AvX and AvI? Picked up some Spiderman around end of Superior) but I like to pay attention

I'm still reading a bunch of DC ongoings, Batman, Superman, Nightwing, Action, and Detective.

Bendis's Action Comics has been his best so far, but I'm interested to see where his new Naomi series is going.

Get him on Eternals. They've got a movie coming so they'll want someone big on that.

I was really hoping Hickman would go to DC to do Legion of Superheroes.

Yeah there was a ton of rumours about him ending up there, especially after Bendis and a few others moved over, but I guess he just wanted a break from working at one of the big two for a while to focus on his creator-owned stuff with Image.
