> With all the announcements in San Diego, there are a few titles that I will be picking up however it means that I will have to cancel a few.
> What I'm excited about the announcements:
> - The War of the Kings --- that will be an awesome cosmic saga. I have been keeping up with Vulcan and the Inhumans since House of M. PLus I get Nova and GofG. Going to be specatular.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this despite the fact that I think Vulcan turned out to be a dud of a character. Here's hoping BB delivers Master blow after Master blow to the lamest of the Summers brothers. Are Nova and GOTG involved as well? I'm wary of my favorite titles always being dragged into crossovers but I'll be there for this one.
> - Adam: The Return of the Blue Marvel ---- piqued my curiousity of a Black Super-Hero in during the Civil Rights Mvt. Definitely getting it.

Sounds interesting but I'll be skipping it.
> - X-Men: World's Apart --- focus on Storm. I read the Black Panther and I love the marriage between the two. I hope Storm doesn't have to choose between T'Challa or the X-Men. Why not both! Intersting personal conflicted story. I'm very picky as to what X-titles to get.

There's always a third option: embrace death Ororo. This would be the only way I'd pick up any mini featuring Storm.
> This means I will be leaving a few Marvel titles starting next week but some of them I will just pick in HC format.
> - Thor --- as a monthly too slow but in a one volume format, an awesome read.

I've dropped it despite liking it: both JMS and Fraction stories.

> - Hulk --- the delays and story flow does not warrant a monthly format, better as a collected edition.

I'll stick with Red Hulk for a while longer. I read that Loeb promises that the Red Hulk is in it for the long haul. I don't know how much mileage they can get out of this character once his identity is finally revealed.

> - X-Men: Legacy --- I find this also reads better as a collected edition.

Still sticking with this. Carey is an excellent writer and I'm enjoying the focus on Chuck.

> - Invincible Iron Man --- lost interest. Stark seems like a better character in Captain America , Secret Invasion and Might Avengers.

Fraction might be the guy who brings me back to Iron Man's world. I've liked the first 2 issues well enough but haven't picked up the third yet.
> But I will still be sticking with BND Amazing Spider-Man!!!!!! I love the story flow and characters.

I'm glad you are enjoying it but I've totally lost interest in the character and title.
