blech. didn't hold my attention at all. Never have I hated a set of characters more than Roma, Saturnyne and the Captain Britain Corps, or whatever they are called.(Exiles crossover, and I really love Exiles... great book. Morph rocks.)
And mark me down as a huge fan of the New Avengers. Huge.
Yep. New Avengers rocks and now we know who Jessica Jones (SpiderWoman) has a behind-the-scenes pact with.
But you ain't kiddin' about House of M. Not only is the main mini series just plain stupid, I also collect both X-Men and Wolverine. The X-Men HoM issues are just plain unreadable. Ridiculously bad. And Wolverine's HoM issues have no tangented off to a four-issue arc that doesn't even have Wolverine IN IT (it's all Mystique talking about Wolvie in flashbacks), which is a complete waste of incredible Mark Texeira inks (he ain't no "tracer", folks).
I've also picked up The Sentry issues 1 and 2 and will be dropping that book. It's nothing but a convoluted effort to legitimize the character into the Marvel universe and continuity.
Of the Ultimate titles, Ultimate Fantastic Four has been outstanding recently- both storyline and art (Greg Land rules). Ultimate Secret #4 just came out and, hopefully the next of the "Ultimate Galactus" minis will ship on time. Hopefully.
DC has itself a sleeper hit with their Power Girl arc in JSA Classified and issue 4 finally clues us into her actual origin. JLA is a solid book.
Other stuff I'm still reading that's been good...
The Walking Dead (best book going right now)
Y- The Last Man
The Authority: Revolution
The New Avengers
Stuff I've dropped altogether...
Ex Machina (slow is an understatement)
Young Avengers (the art went to crap and I'm not that tied to the characters)
Older stuff that was new to me recently...
The Books of Magic TPB collection
Batman: Dark Victory (every issue)
JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice TPB
The Golden Age TPB (a real must-read)
