For me so far:

Amazing Spider-Man: No.  There's some interesting ideas in here, but not enough to spare some of my limited budgets of comics money/reading time.

Guardians of the Galaxy:  Yes. Just interesting enough to give them a chance.    
                                   
The New Avengers: Yes. So far, they seem to be treating Squirrel Girl well.        
                                   
Spider-Gwen: Yes. So far, they've maintained the quality from the previous book.      
                             
The Uncanny Avengers:  Maybe. It's mildly interesting, but I really don't like Deadpool.      
                   
How about you?

Amazing Spider-Man: Yes.

Dr. Strange. Big yes!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Yes.

New Avengers: No.

Uncanny Avengers: Maybe.

I did end up buying #2 of  New Avengers.

Howling Commandos: Probably. As I expected, Dum Dum's become a star! P.S. -- Where did the zombie Jason Sitwell come from? Anyone know?

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Maybe. I hit my limit on quirky pretty fast.

Angela: Queen of Hel: No. I didn't understand much of this. A first issue should tell me what I need to know.

Ant-Man: Maybe. Mildly amusing.

Agents of Atlas: Oops! It's a Secret Wars title!

Uncanny Inhumans: No. Inhumans are still pale copies of X-Men, who beat them to all the cool powers and personalities.

Karnak: Maybe. He's not likable, but it's different.

Marvel Point One: Confirms my belief that Contest of Champions is a stupid premise.

Secret Wars Official Guide to the Marvel Multiverse: Grant Morrision did it better, and this book looks backward (to Battleworld) more than it looks forward. Also, lots of dry text. I feel ripped off.

Yeah, I got Ant Man and it is kind of amusing in a low key sitcom way. Reminds me a little of Dan Slott's She-Hulk and Thing books from some years back. But there's nothing that left me clamoring for more.

Karnak did capture my interest too. I'll pick up a few more issues and see if a good story materializes.

I almost bought New Avengers #2 yesterday, but I put it back on the shelf. I still haven't read issue #1, and looking at who's in it, I just really don't have any interest.

Picked up Hercules #1 - It's very good. Quite promising.

Blew off Guardians of the Galaxy #2, however.

I ordered

  • EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN (nice roster here)
  • HERCULES (because I've like his past series and it's the real Hercules!)
  • HOWARD THE DUCK (for a while anyway)
  • VISION (not crazy about the premise but will give it a chance!)

I liked GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 but isn't it funny that it has incorporated three characters from the non-Disney movies: Kitty Pryde (X-MEN), Agent Venom (SPIDER-MAN) and the Thing (FANTASTIC FOUR) much like UNCANNY AVENGERS with Rogue, "Spider-Man" and the Human Torch.

I picked up a few this week:

Avengers vs Infinity -No

Drax -Yes

Hercules -No

Nova -No

Vision -No

Besides Avengers vs, I didn't think any of these were bad but I just don't feel like they are aimed at me.  I liked the art on Drax and enjoyed the writing enough to get the next issue.

Extraordinary X-Men 1 - no.Howard the Duck 1 - yes

Hercules 1 - Umm, maybe?  I don't feel like Abnett's quite gotten his voice for the Prince of Power yet, plus I want there to be a few more jokes.

Did Avengers vs. Infinity really come out? I read on Bleeding Cool that it had been pulled because some pages were missing or out of order. I wasn't all that keen anyway, since it's written by the guy who adapts the TV cartoons, and I assumed the characters in this book were the animated versions.

Yeah, I got a digital copy. Apparently retailers were ordered to destroy their physical copies but there are plenty of them floating around on eBay.

Is it indeed the animated version of the characters?
