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.

- Adam: The Return of the Blue Marvel ---- piqued my curiousity of a Black Super-Hero in during the Civil Rights Mvt. Definitely getting 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.

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.
- Hulk --- the delays and story flow does not warrant a monthly format, better as a collected edition.
- X-Men: Legacy --- I find this also reads better as a collected edition.
- Invincible Iron Man --- lost interest. Stark seems like a better character in Captain America , Secret Invasion and Might Avengers.

But I will still be sticking with BND Amazing Spider-Man!!!!!! I love the story flow and characters.

...was the announcement that IDW has plans to reprint Larry Hama's work on the Marvel G.I.Joe title. (As I stupidly passed on the collected editions released several years back.)

That was one of the first comics I bought regularly ... with my own damn allowance. In elementary school, I'd force my parents to swing by the local 7-11 so I could snag the latest issues.

Then the Mom, while cleaning out my closet one day, stepped all over the first two years of the book. Yes, issues 1-27 were scattered about the floor as I had been re-reading them the night before.

So while I did keep them, they were never going to make it into my beautiful bagged/boarded NM+ boxed collections.

Always vowed to track down better copies of those books, but got into titles such as Daredevil, Captain America, Avengers, and Uncanny X-Men. And kinda left my G.I.Joe toys and comics behind.

(Actually, I sampled a few of the Hama/Bright issues of the early 90s. In fact, a cover image of Snake Eyes skydiving comes to mind. But I just never really got back into G.I.Joe.)

I might actually try out the Hama reboot title as well.
