So, what has everyone been reading these days? I was just going through and re-organizing some comics into long/short boxes this week, and started to realize how much room these monthlies/weeklies start to take up. I've been trying to streamline my pull list/subscriptions lately, but now I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't try to switch to trades for more titles - or pass them altogether. I'm really enjoying a lot of comics lately, but - much like collecting - they are starting to take up more room in our house than they should.
Anyways, here's some of what I've been reading right now:
Subscribed/Pulled: Amazing Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men, New Avengers, Fantastic Four, Captain America, Invincible Iron Man
Checking Out: Ultimate Spider-Man (what's left), Wolverine: Weapon X, Daredevil, Mighty Avengers, War of Kings MiniSeries
Pulled: Batman, Batman and Robin, Green Lantern, Superman: World of New Krypton, Flash: Rebirth, and upcoming Blackest Night
Checking Out: Batman: Streets of Gotham, Gotham City Sirens
Other - G.I. Joe (Main Series)
I was going to comment individually, but thought that might get a little lengthy. Some general thoughts - aside from the whole BND controversy, I think Amazing Spider-Man has been the best it has been in a long, long time. I've really been enjoying it every week, and it has been especially good this year. I'm sort of giving quite a few of the Batman books a chance right now, but Batman/Batman and Robin are the constants for me. I'm not sure about the Damian character overall yet, but I do like there is a title called "Batman and Robin" - hopefully it sticks around if/when (when) Bruce returns. Otherwise, looking forward most to the Blackest Night stuff - hopefully it is as good as it looks so far. I recently dropped the Justice League comic, because I was bored to tears with the team without having the "big guns" involved. I might pick it up again later this year when James Robinson takes over, if we start seeing Batman/Superman/WW/Flash/GL together again. I know there are different opinions on it, but to me that is the Justice League I want to read about.
I'm also not reading a Star Wars comic for the first time in awhile. I thought about checking out Invasion, but we'll see. I've also read Ultimate Spidey pretty much from the beginning, but I'm wondering if I'll continue on with the "Ultimate Comics" restart or not. If anything, it might just be a TPB thing. Overall though, lots of good reads out there these days - but I'm still trying to decide what to cut, if anything. Like I said, it is just a lot of space taken up by the individual issues at this point. Has anyone else here switched to trades, or kind of a mix of both?
