Nuthin too exciting there. I'm curious to see how Waid writes Thor for those 2 issues of IH though.

AVENGERS: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION BY GEOFF JOHNS VOL. 1 TPB
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Penciled by KIERON DWYER, GARY FRANK, IVAN REIS & ALAN DAVIS
Cover by GARY FRANK
Superstar writer Geoff Johns takes on the Avengers! They can defeat any super villain — but can the Avengers govern the world? When the capital cities of every country on Earth vanish, the floundering nations turn to the only organization capable of helping them: the Avengers! Then: Thor ascends to Asgard’s throne and decides to start answering his worshippers’ pleas for help. But not everyone’s in favor of divine intervention, and it’s Secretary of Defense Iron Man’s job to stop the Thunder God’s interference — leaving Captain America to play referee between two of the world’s biggest super powers! Plus: His memories stolen, an amnesiac Vision must seek help from his creator’s reluctant granddaughter to defeat a technological terror left over from WWII! Collecting AVENGERS (1998) #57-63, VISION (2002) #1-4, THOR (1998) #58 and IRON MAN (1998) #64.
312 PGS./Rated T+ …$29.99
ISBN: 978-0-7851-8433-1


Yes! I've been waiting for Marvel to collect the rest of Volume III in trade. I can only hope that they'll reprint the last 20-30 issues while they're at it!

It's a potential dropper. The newest issue was going to be the deciding factor for me and I ended up loving it. So it's still in danger but not dropped quite yet. Thor, Uncanny X-Force, New Avengers, Batman Incorporated, Batman & Robin, and Phantom Stranger are all titles that I enjoy but are potential droppers.
Wolverine & the X-Men is heading in that direction, though Azazel's coming has me intrigued. Same with Uncanny Avengers, though the next arc has my eye... and Remender's really good, so I'm giving it some legs.

I'm undecided if I'm going to pick up Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Thanos Rising yet. I'm questioning Age of Ultron as well but will likely pick it up.

We just figured out in the Diamond thread that's up there that you would save about $36 if you bought your comics via subscription. It's about 40% off on most Marvel books... and you get free shipping.

Jesus christ Marvel. You're almost forced to sign up for their subscription list if you want to afford all that without feeling like an ass. I'm half hoping their sales fall dramatically so they realize they can't keep doing this $4 an issue twice a month schedule. It's freaking robbery. Say what you will about DC but at least their model is sane. I'm almost scared DC will want to start copying what Marvel is doing after they see how Marvel is making money hand over fist.

They've been charging $4 an issue for years and it's only getting worse. It's either give them your money or drop stuff.

That's why nowadays I've been dropping Marvel first since they're the ones forcing my hand. I might like the title more than some DC stuff but they did it to themselves. Well, unless I really don't care for the DC book, but I think I'm beyond that now.

Some cool collections coming out, I've always wanted to check out Spider-Man 2099.

I thought Avenging Spider-Man was a once a month thing?!

And I thought Cornell's Wolverine was a 2.99 title...I swore I saw that in a preview GRRRR!

I may have to skip over this AU stuff entirely. Too much 3.99 stuff...

Yep. Marvel collected all of Busiek's run in five nice "Avengers Assemble" trades. I'm glad I don't have to hunt for back issues to finish the rest of the volume. Trade just reads so much nicer! Plus, it would be a nightmare hunting for ten year old single issues and annuals.

I uh, I've been venting alot for the past 30 minutes or so and randomly pacing throughout the my room. I actually quoted Mr. Dent and JewishHobbit talking about Marvel and there ridiculously stupid 4$ double-shipping nonsense and it kept building into more anger.

I have built so much frustration I can hardly express myself. I've only began buying comics a little over a month ago and I enjoy it greatly BUT the cost is starting to become a big strain on my wallet. Marvel is really frustrating me to no end. I'm exploding. I don't normally get upset but I just realized something.

I wanted to try out Venom and Journey into Mystery and I did and decided to check them out for a while. I noticed on Venom it says published monthly except January, April, July, and September. I mistakenly took that for it just not coming out that month and I thought cool I can get some other stuff....I didn't realize it meant it would be coming out TWICE a month instead. I suppose the same thing for Journey into Mystery and other titles that detail this. I didn't know that! I can handle a 3$ title twice a month but on top of the other 4$ double junk? Curses Marvel!

I want to check out numerous DC, IDW, and Dark horse titles. How the crap am I supposed to do that with Marvel doing this?! Looks like I may have to drop Hickman's Avengers and New Avengers which I'm really enjoying but don't have a clue how I'm going to continue to pick it up now that I think about it. I don't want to drop All New X-Men, Superior, and Uncanny X-Men...I'm picking up the ongoing Star Wars series from Dark Horse and thats only 2.99 with a digital copy included!

I really felt good back when I made my New Your's Resolution to get into the wonderful world of comics on a monthly/weekly basis. Before I had to read what people TALKED about in the comic world but wanted to experience it for myself as I was given some comics years ago but never bought any for myself despite loving them.

Now I'm starting to think I may of made a mistake...maybe I should go back to picking up trades every once and a while. I do like collected trades but I'm behind when I was getting those, I go for whatever is good for the price and its something usually from years ago. In the past few months I got the Avengers Assemble Vol.1 Busiek's run and the Big Time Ultimate Collection because of the excellent price for so many pages. But I've always wanted to have a big comic book collection, to add to what was given to me as a child.

I know I probably should clam down and not vent on a internet forum where generally the only emotion I express is excitement and positive thoughts(I'm rarely negative...I try to avoid that) but apart of me said no just say something.

Jeez I probably embarrassed myself. And I have the evils of college homework I should be doing....so I will check here tomorrow morning and see the chaos(or lack thereof) I caused....

Maybe we should make a thread to vent our frustrations and then send it to Marvel with the title of "We Love You Marvel, But Seriously...Stop"

^ Well, given how much of a Spidey fan you are and if you just want to be caught up on what most people are going to be talking about and have the most visible effect on the Marvel Universe I'd say just cut down your Marvel pull list to Superior Spider-Man, Avengers, New Avengers, MAYBE Guardians of the Galaxy, and get the "Infinity" crossover event issues when they come out this summer. In that way you will have all the bases you want covered and won't have to spend gobs of money to do it (I say this but I'm not willing to cut back much myself hurr). If you really want to follow All-New/Uncanny X-Men then either buy one title or cut GotG out of that list. Very efficient way to buy Marvel comics right there, since most of their other titles are just fluff (given a lot of it IS quality fluff).

Yeah... completely understand. You're in the same boat I am, but my weakness is X-Men. That's why I've made the decision to focus on the X-titles I want and base the rest of my buying around that. Once I get my X-Men books listed, I look at the rest of Marvel and DC. If it's too much, I look to cut from Marvel first because it's their fault I have to cut. If I'm set on what I'm buying there, then I look at DC, who I give more slack to due to their better handling of prices and shipping scheduals.

Some help I might offer... stick with the ongoings you love most (for you, I'm guessing the Spider-Man books). After that consider genres. If you want to cut back on books and not feel tempted to buy more, drop genres instead of individual titles. That might not work for some but it works for me often.

I was horribly turned off of Spidey after OMD and as a general rule of thumb, I stay away from that genre. So as much as I'm curious at times, I typically dodge things like Venom, Scarlet Spider, Morbius, and Avenging Spider-Man. I'm currently debating on picking up Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy because that'd be introducing me into the cosmic genre, and do I really want to start a new genre?! I don't know.


Also, if you don't want to do the genre thing you could always focus on the core books of each genre and stick to those. For X-Men it'd be All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men. For Spider-Man it'd be Superior Spider-Man. For Avengers it'd be Avengers and New Avengers. The Cosmic line's just restarting but it sounds like Guardians of the Galaxy is the core book (though Nova might be just as important, but I don't think so). Once you get what you want of those, fill in the gaps with as many individual, stand alone titles that you can... like Indestructible Hulk, Thor: God of Thunder, and Daredevil.

This can also help while at DC. There aren't many genres but I find if you stick to Batman and Green Lantern, you don't really need the other books in their genres.


Just some advice. It might not be for you but I thought I'd offer it. My top recommendation though... set up a SET limit of monthly spending and stick with it. Don't overshoot it and, if you can, stay under it. That'll help you decide what gets dropped and what stays.

Or you could just ignore this entire post.

I would also consider the subs... if you live in the US... oviously more bang for your buck.

And I would avoid listening to the Negative Nancies... they just make you mad...

It's true. I used to get so upset for listening to all the negativity, and then I stopped listening to them and I enjoyed the comics so much more.

Then Marvel turned me into one with their prices and shipping scheduals!

In that way you will have all the bases you want covered and won't have to spend gobs of money to do it (I say this but I'm not willing to cut back much myself hurr). If you really want to follow All-New/Uncanny X-Men then either buy one title or cut GotG out of that list. Very efficient way to buy Marvel comics right there, since most of their other titles are just fluff (given a lot of it IS quality fluff).
I've decided to drop Avengers and New Avengers after issue six and either pick up the collected trades or try subscribing. Once my subscription would expire I probably wouldn't pick any more. I decided to skip over the Age of Ultron completely...

Thats exactly right, it is Marvel's fault. DC doesn't seem to double ship and seems to have a larger array of 2.99 titles. I am more of a Marvel fan, but sometimes I feel it would be easy if I wasn't. Spider-Man and X-Men are my favorite parts of the Marvel universe over Avengers anyways.

All New X-Men and Superior I love. I enjoy New Avengers as well but I think I'm going to have to stick away from that. I'm going try subscribing next weekend and see how that will turn out for Avengers. I love titles that come out once a month though because I have plenty of time to catch up.

Some people seem to amount this Superior stuff to OMD. I didn't plan on getting Venom and Scarlet Spider or Avenging. In fact I only originally planned to have Superior and Dark Horse's ongoing Star Wars comics be the ONLY things I would ever buy....but I got curious...and excited. I decided to try to get the whole Spidey family of titles as its the smallest one next to Avengers and the goliath of X-titles.

Yeah I gotta try out GOTG I like Bendis. Nova can suck it lol. I've heard negative things about Loeb anyways since the Red Hulk thing. I will definitely stick to the two X-titles. I think it will work out as long as I stay away from Avengers stuff. There is always trades I guess.

DC stuff should be a piece of cake.

I made a note to myself to only spend 20$ a week but lately I kept going over that. I will make myself keep to that from now on. Age of Ultron is something I was interested in but now I'm just saying no.

Another Ragnarok story. I hope Remender does a good job, but I kind of stopped getting excited for these around the third or fourth one I read. They use it way too much in Thor's comics.

It pains me that after Bendis finally leaves Avengers, Hickman decides to throw us a story filled with kung fu and ninjas too.

I f***ing hate that cover of the Hulk wielding Mjolnir. As if it weren't already hard enough to get Hulk fanboys to shut up.

BETA RAY BILL!

Even though I'm still sure it's gonna be canceled in no time, I have to say, Fearless Defenders has had some pretty strong covers. Paper doll Valkyrie is no exception. Can't say I like the promise of yet another retcon to Brunnhilde's origin in the solicit, though.

Glad Eddie's finally going to be a part of the Venom series. It's about time.

Did Captain Marvel get canceled already? The solicitation for Avengers: The Enemy Within says it's an Avengers/Captain Marvel crossover, but there's no solicitation for a CM issue.

I apparently missed Beta Ray Bill. Where's he appearing?

He only ever seems to get them when Thor's out of the picture. Maybe Thor'll die again soon and Bill can get some love.
