There's a lot of titles coming out that I'm pretty stoked about. When I started buying comics again a few years back, I limited myself to two a month - Runaways and X-Factor - plus a mini that looked interesting. This May I'll be picking up:
X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead
Captain Britain and MI: 13 (probably)
Avengers: the Initiative
Amazing Spider-Girl Vol. 3 TPB
Runaways (if there is one that month)
X-Factor is always a treat, so I'm happy to get a double dose. PAD's Quicksilver is a fun bad guy for X-Factor, and between X-Factor and the Son of M/Silent War minis, he's becoming someone I look forward to seeing in action (until the inevitable change of him being a hero again).
Other than one back issue of Spider-Man featuring Excalibur, I really have no connection to CB and MI:13. But I've been interested in picking up both the Wisdom mini and the Union Jack mini for awhile now, and for some reason I just think this will be a comic I'll enjoy. I think the idea of a Skrull posing as John Lennon really sold me. If the comic is something I can have fun with, and not have to worry about a whole ton of backstory, that'll be a keeper.
Even though the Initiative has always piqued my interest, I've never given it the go ahead. But the inclusion of Prodigy in this month's ish is like crack to me, so I'm in - gonna buy the back issues and everything. Any Slingers appearance, and I'm there.
I try to support the MC-2 stuff, so as with Amazing Spider-Girl, I'll probably pick up American Dream as a tpb even though it doesn't really hold much interest for me. Just being a good Samaritan I suppose. Also planning on starting to pick up the tpbs of Daredevil, maybe even going back as far as all of Bendis' stuff, because 1) the Hood has been appearing; 2) Black Tarantula's been appearing, and; 3) I've just heard so much praise about it. It's one of those books where, if I wasn't a broke college student, I'd probably be picking it up. Same goes with all the Annihilation stuff - always looked cool, but because I really have no connection with any of the characters, I never picked it up. Hopefully someday I can get the whole lot of the story.
Also, anyone think we'll see any Skrull Kill Krew during this Invasion stuff? It seems like a pretty natural fit to me! I'd really love to see Runaways do an arc where Noh-Var hires the SKK to hunt any leftover Skrulls on Earth, which of course leads them to Xavin.
-Pav, who really can't help it, the comics have been so good lately if you know where to look...
