> Currently reading: Captain America, Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Fist, The Twelve, 1985, Hulk, Captain Britain and MI13, Eternals, X-Factor, Fantastic Four, Thunderbolts, Kick Ass. Maybe a couple I forgot.

My list: Cap, Nova, GOTG, Iron Fist, The Twelve, 1985, Hulk, X-Factor, X-Men Legacy, Avengers: The Initiative, Defenders mini, She-Hulk, Thor, Avengers/Invaders.
> Currently avoiding: Anything Secret Invasion, Spider-Man, Avengers

> Marvel waited too long to release it and now i'm disinterested: Skaar

I never had any interest in the first place.
> Newest titles I like and will go past 3 issues: Captain Britain, Guardians of the Galaxy

Just GOTG for me. Captain Britain had me curious but I will wait until the Skrull stuff is over before I check it out. Black Knight is an old favorite of mine.
> Newest titles on the bubble: Eternals

For me it's probably Hulk. This is just reaching the point of total absurdity now. I'm half convinced the whole series will be revealed to be someone's fantasy or dream.
> Dropping: Thunderbolts. Next ish is a new creative team and an SI tie in.

Thor's on the bubble for me. Every time I say that I buy the latest issue and reconsider but it just isn't wowing me.
> Dropped: Daredevil. It just kind of bores me, I hate to say it. The latest issue just didn't appeal to me at all.

I dropped the FF. I wasn't impressed with the first story arc. The tie-ins with 1985 may make me reconsider but not as of yet.
> Favorite mini series: Twelve

> Newest Essentials: Captain Marvel and Godzilla

No Essentials lately for me but I did recently get the last DVD collection I needed: Iron Man.
> Just plain painful: Anything Secret Invasion. Partially dislocated shoulder (don't try that at home).

SI just produces a sensation of apathy for me. Pain at least lets me know I'm alive.
> Thoughts on the month of June:
> After vowing to stop buying it, I gave FF ONE more issue to entertain me. I actually liked it and will get the next issue. FF's reprieve is now issue to issue.
> 1985 is darn good so far.

I agree about 1985.
> I LIKE Bucky as Captain America. I can actually wait til the real deal returns.

Again, I agree. There are so many Caps running around that it feels like he never left.
> I never got to see the Hulk movie.

I haven't seen Hulk or Iron Man yet. On cable Ghost Rider plays at least 10 times a day it seems.
> I experienced a first in comics after decades of collecting. I read an entire issue and DIDN'T GET ALL OF IT. Thanks Final Crisis. I'll save money not buying the third issue. I'll reread the second because I can't stand not "getting it" though.

In the past when a DC mini has had the word "Crisis" in the title I've been there. Not this time. Justice Society is my only DC title these days and even that is on the bubble--this Magog/Gog storyline is taking forever.
> After reading some of the aforementioned Essentials, I really miss the old days.

I always keep one foot in the past. I'm currently alternating reading various DVD collections: right now I'm in the middle of "Acts of Vengeance" over in Avengers, late 60's Hulk and Captain America, and just started Iron Man. The last Essential I read was Essential Defenders volume 1 and I'll be starting volume 2 in the near future.
> I like the setup left for the new creative team to play with on Iron Fist.

I haven't read the latest issue but have heard good things. My hope is that the bulk of fans don't jump ship and this title can survive.
> Rocket Raccoon kicks ass.

> Several comics sit in a stack for me as personal obligations and work have left me too busy. I'll get to them, though.....
> Taking the daughter to Disneyworld July 20th! Can't wait!

Have fun.
> Looking forward to a July that's a lot better than June!

With Secret Invasion taking over more and more titles(even the cosmic books like Nova and GOTG) I can honestly say that this is not a summer that fills me with anticipation.
