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.
Hmmm. I understand this takes place in Weirdworld? I've never been interested in the Black Knight, but you have me a little intrigued.

I liked Black Knight #2. It wasn't perfect but this is probably the first time I've ever found the character even remotely interesting.
I'm a trade waiter these days , Ultimates is one of the more intriguing new Marvel titles for me and it is probably because of the Averngers vibe you suggest - every other 'Avengers' title seems to be 'Baby-Avengers' or something.
now I'm really itching to see this Ultimates

Picked up Ultimates #2 today. So far, this is the only post SW book that has totally clicked for me. Ironically, it reads more like the Avengers comic that I want than any of the various Avengers titles.
Does he bring the occupants of the dead worlds back too? - If so - clearly this is how Marvel can bring back any 'world/dimension' they've destroyed up to Secret Wars in the future isn't it?

Since Galactus eats energy, does this mean he's now vomiting?
Picked up Squadron Supreme #1 today, read it on my lunch hour. A fairly major event occurs, if it's allowed to stand.
Squadron Supreme: Yes
My tally so far...
Dang, I'm now three weeks behind on #1 issues from Marvel! Fortunately, 12/16 and 12/23 were pretty light. Not much scheduled for 12/30, either.
Squadron Supreme 1 -Yes. I'm probably in this one for the long haul.
Weirdworld 1 -No. I liked the mini and this ongoing retains the artist from that book but unfortunately this appears to be aimed at a different audience. Black Knight probably captures more of what I liked about the Weirdworld mini.
Starbrand & Nightmask -No. I guess I am one of the few fans of the original New Universe but I was happy to see these characters added to Hickman's Avengers a while back. Unfortunately, this book seems to be aimed at younger readers and has the cartoony art style I don't like, so I'm out.
So far, there are 8 books I'm sticking with:
Drax (for at least one more issue)
After reading issue #2, I’ve decided to drop Daredevil. It’s just not clicking with me.
My ongoing tally:
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
All-New, All-Different Avengers (2)
Amazing Spider-Man (1)
Scarlet Witch (1)
I think the real question (for me) is not “Will I be buying #2?” but rather “Will I still be buying it six months from now?” (The number in parenthesis represents how many issues I read before making the decision to drop the title.) I’d also like to take this opportunity to mention those condescending ads for the next issue on the last pages of all these series. You know, the ones that say, “Do you want to know what happens next? Read the next issue.” I know I’m not the intended audience for any of these series, but does Marvel really think they don’t know how periodicals work?
I caught up on December #1s, and got a bellyfull of "Batgirlization." I like that approach OK, but it was just too many at a sitting: Gwenpool, Starbrand & Nightmask, Hellcat, probably one or two I'm not remembering. It was a saccharine overdose.
