Color Version | 1-6

I've had these on the shelf for a couple of years meaning to get to them. I should have read them sooner.

Spider-Man Noir
Complete Collection

Fantastic.

Civil War
Paper Girls
Vol 2-6
Killeroo: The Stones of Karantjiirinja

The art is beautiful but the story is lacking.

Paper Girls
Vol 1

I picked this up for a couple of quid in a charity shop and now I'm ordering volumes 2-6 on Amazon.

Watchmen

This is incredible.

Hawkeye: Kate Bishop
Spider-Ham with Captain Americat and Hulk-Bunny

I like Spider-Ham in the movie but I think I'm going to skip the comics from now on.

Spidey Fights in London

Some of these older comics really overtell the story. We don't need to know every single thought in Spider-Man's head.

Spider-Man: Life Story #1

Will definitely be picking up the TPB of this.

Spider-Man Annual #1 - Featuring Spider-Ham!
Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #1
Jessica Jones: The Pulse

I love JJ so much.

All-New Hawkeye
Vol 1-2

The story is good but the art style is not to my liking.

Life is Strange: Dust

I'm so glad they're doing more issues.

Hulkverines 2019
Exiles
1-10

A couple of issues in the middle took a dive in story and art, but came back pretty quickly. There's a lot of fun characters in this.

West Coast Avengers

Kelly Thompson is such a great writer. This series is a lot of fun; it's a shame it was cancelled.

Spider-Verse

So much cool stuff going on here.

Hello World

This was a fascinating look at what problems we still need to solve with using AI and machine learning before we can fully rely on them.

Guardians of the Galaxy #19

This was fun. Will grab some more of this run at some point.

Infinity War #1

Now I definitely need to read the rest.

Avengers Engame Prelude

Really isn't worth getting these.

Captain Marvel: Prelude

Didn't really add anything that isn't in the movies.

Spider-Gwen: Most Wanted?

The artwork is incredible. Going to read Spider-Verse as soon as possible.

Jessica Jones: Blind Spot 2018

Perfect.

Bombshells United
1-4

I couldn't bear to read any more of this. The story is so incoherent.

Rogue & Gambit
1-5

Kelly Thompson can do no wrong.

Domino 2018
1-10

This is one of the best runs I've read. Can't wait for Hotshots.

Typhoid Fever
Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Fist

Confusing at first, but it enjoyed it.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Vol. 1: BFF

Really fun. Cliffhanger in issues 6 means I'll be ordering more pretty soon.

Season's Beatings
Merry X-Men Holiday Special 2018

Fun.

Spider-Man: Enter the Spider-Verse 2018

I have no idea if this is supposed to be a movie tie-in, or something else. I enjoyed it, but it's kinda weird.

What If the Alien Costume Had Possessed Spider-Man?
True Believers Reprint
What If Gwen Stacy Had Lived? 1980
True Believers Reprint
What If? The Punisher

Not as much shooting as I'd expected but a good overall story.

Back to the Future
Tales from the Time Train | Back to the Future (IDW)

Not as good some other parts of the series but still pretty good.

Hawkeye Omnibus 2015

This really is as good as everyone says it is. But Kate is clearly the superior Hawkeye.

Spider-Man Annual 2018
What If? Spider-Man 2018
Flash Thompson is Spider-Man

This was very good.

What If? X-Men
.EXE/men

The plot is messy and I don't think I really understand the conclusion. Artwork was nice though.

The Unbelievable Gwenpool Vol. 1

Well now I'm going to have to buy more Gwenpool. The art is great and the writing is superb.

Deadpool: Games of Death

Foolish, American. My elephant-stomping technique will always beat your crazy drunken sailor style.

This was a fun one.

Deadpool Masacre

This was written in English, translated to Spanish, then translated back; that's part of the gimmick of this one shot but it really isn't that good.

West Coast Avengers #2 2018

Another excellent issue.

The Definitive Deadpool
Marvel Platinum
  • New Mutants #98
  • Deadpool/Death Annual '98
  • Vol. 2: #33, #37, #57-60, 64
  • Cable and Deadpool #31-32
  • Vol. 4: #6
West Coast Avengers #1 2018

Can't wait to get more of this.

Jessica Jones 2017
2016-2018

Lots of great cameos in this and Killgrave returning, even for a little bit, was great.
