The lights are on
Confused about continuity? Want to start your own Marvel vs. DC superhero war? Head on in to pick apart storylines, books, artists, authors, and much more. The superhero registration line starts here.
Yeah, I have a cool local store I use as my main source for Comic Books. I'll look into subscribing from them, I did ask them to hold an issue for me one time.

Sorry for posting this in here, guys, but when does Batman #18 come out?
I don't know. So, I picked up Nova #1, Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 and Age of Ultron #1. I like all of them. I just hope Age of Ultron doesn't kill somebody off to increase sales. I really don't like Beast's appearance in Age of Ultron, his face looks just off. I like it, I just hope Beast gets drawn better.
Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy were both interesting origin stories. I'll be following both of them.
Beast got redesigned in all new xmen so i dont think the look is the artists fault

I'm going to pick up AoU #1, but I don't know if I want to follow the whole event.
I really like Guardians a lot more than I thought I would. Pretty awesome story telling.
AofU was pretty bonkers, Hawkeye was surprisingly awesome (I say surprisingly because I hate hawkeye). And is it just me or did spider-man seem really, peter parker-y in that book. He did not really feel like the personality of doc ock
I think IGN actually said that it was Peter Parker. The entire AoU story smells kinda alternate-reality-comic-booky
weird considering the AoU superior Spider-man tie in (which I'm not going to buy but based on the preview art is freaking gorgeous) is pretty clearly Dock ock Spidey
Yeah, I seen that too. Maybe they were talking about somebody else but they said "somebody is not who they are supposed to be", but they could be talking about a completely different person.
@Gaming Warthog @Cameron: I also picked up AU and added it to my pull but if it starts sucking I'll drop it. I was disturbed by Hawkeye's actions in the first issue. o_O Edit: Is anyone else loving New Avengers as much as I am? XD
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
Maybe the tie-ins are an alternate reality from the main Age of Ultron book. The tie-ins have AU at the end, which could stand for alternate universe. That's what it means among fanfic writers at least. I don't think mainline AOU is an alternate reality though, the ads have put a lot of emphasis on that.
I love New Avengers. I can't believe they just *Issue #3 spoiler, you know what I'm talking about.* Namor's a total @#$% in my opinion, kind of rooting for Black Panther to get revenge. I can see the logic behind Cap's treatment, but it is so going to backfire (just look at Avengers #1). I'm looking forward to #4, looks like it's Galactus time (and it's only a matter of time before Thanos gets in on the fun, even without the obvious movie hype for GotG and Avengers 2).
@Gaming Warthog: Much agreed! I have a love to hate Namor thing going on and he was a huge Dick in issue 2 and a little in 3, I believe. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens in that series.
Hickman said Avengers and New Avengers will be connected, so I can see some co-relation between the two being important. The recent events in Avengers feel connected to New Avengers premise.
*NEW AVENGERS #3 SPOILERS UPCOMING, I WARNED YOU* Did you notice that the Time gem vanished instead of being destroyed like the others. And the Infinity Gems switched colors, compare when the Infinity Gauntlet is formed to when the Infinity Gems get destroyed. The exception being Power and Soul, their colors were consistent. Even assuming the color swaping was an error, the Time gem vanishing was purely intention. We haven't seen the last of the Infinity Gems, I'm sure about that.
Back to less spoiler filled discussion. My top four Marvel Now series.
1. Young Avengers
3. Uncanny Avengers
4. All New X-Men
If the new artist on Thunderbolts does not redeem the series with his first issue next month, I'm dropping it... Down a hole. And burying it. Never to be seen again.
Jokes aside, though, I'm going to be replacing the series probably, so I'm counting on you guys (continued in What Comic Should I Subscribe To? Thread)
@Gaming Warthog: I'm a little disappointed that those two books are related but if the other one's done well then that's just fine. I won't be buying it anyway. I did notice that the one gem didn't shatter but didn't notice the color shift. I loved the three panels on the top of the next page after that happened that showed those awesome characters. There's just so much I love about this series. I do like lists so keep 'em coming! Unfortunately, the only book from your Top Four I'm reading is All New X-Men. Here's my Top Ten picks as of a few days ago.
