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?

People want voices and movement. Comics might survive if they last long enough for technology to make them talk and move.

Female nerds? Dang! Where were they hiding when I was younger?

Heck, the only reason I'm there is because I'm writing a series of articles on Marvel #1s. After Marvel's through rebooting, I'll go back to Amazon and review e-copies. I have 10 times more material to read weekly than I have time for, and I'm not reading Marvel or DC much at all. Sad but true.

If they talk and move I think they stop being comics.

Back when I was going to the early San Diego Cons (and was single), the only woman there was Wendy Pini, who of course was married. Women only started showing up in significant numbers after I was old and married.

Actually, they were waiting for you to get old and married before going to the cons. There are memos.

The only other ones besides Wendy Pini I ever heard of were Roy Thomas' first wife and that artist that said she was a witch. I think her name was Paty.

Are you maybe thinking of Cat Yronwode?

Bevedere: How did you know she's a witch?

Crowd: She's dressed like one!

Accused: They dressed me this way. And this isn't my nose, it's a false one.

Bevedere: Did you dress her this way?

Crowd: No! No! No! Well, yes. Yes. A bit. We did do the nose. And the hat. But she has got warts!

Wikipedia says she was Dave Cockrum's wife. I remember in the Official Guide to the Marvel Universe they had her draw aliens on the last couple of pages of every issue.

I got Daredevil #1 and #2. Clearly, they intend to dole out in dribs and drabs how Matt Murdock is a) back in New York, b) again a practicing lawyer, c) now working for the District Attorney's office and d) once again has a secret secret identity.

The answers to those questions, I fear, are far more interesting than going back to the well Frank Miller dug and giving us ninjas, again(!). But I trust Charles Soule, so I'll stick around for a bit. 

I trust Soule too, but the introduction of last issue's villains left me wary.

I am, too. If this book turns out to be all about ninjas and the Kingpin and Elektra and Stick and the Hand all over again, I'm bailing -- I've read all that stuff!
