Spider-Men
Quote:
Marvel pulled back the curtain on the long-teased Spider-Men series today, unveiling that the Marvel 616 Peter Parker will be meeting the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Miles Morales, for the very first time. Spider-Men is a five issue mini-series from Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli with covers by Jim Cheung, and will launch in June.

The story finds Peter thrust into another universe while tracking down a villain, only to discover that the "him" of that new universe is dead and there's a different hero in his place. As the two meet and learn about one another, it will grow their characters and change their lives forever.

"This year is the 50th anniversary of Spider-Man and we're so happy that the stars aligned for us to tell a Spider-Man story that nobody has ever seen before," said Bendis. "It's an honor and a privilege to present both this story and these characters to fans on such an auspicious occasion. The work Sara has done on Spider-Men is a step above the already high standard that she has set for herself on our Ultimate Comics Spider-Man series. For me, this is a celebration of the best character in mainstream comics and some of the best art mainstream comics has to offer."

"This is one of the biggest stories in Marvel history," said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. "Peter Parker and Miles Morales are two of our most popular characters and fans have been clamoring for them to meet—we've got quite a few surprises in store for both characters. This is only the beginning of how we're celebrating Spider-Man's spectacular 50th Anniversary."

Any reason why your not interested in the vs. ones?

I'm just tired of feeling pulled into cross overs. Not to mention i've never been a fan of the Avengers (as a team).

I'm new to this but I want to torrent the X-Men comics from the beggining. Like the Original X-Men and Giant X-Men to the Phoenix Saga and all of that.

The only problem is I have no clue which torrent is the right one and what I should download.

I would also prefer that I could put these comics on a tablet.

If anyone can help me figure out how to do this or direct me to a link with the original x-men comics and so forth I would appreciate it.

I always have trouble with this.. I never know what to recommend since comic books are over the place.

If you wanna try Marvel.. I think Civil War is a good story to delve into.

DC's reboot has been pretty solid. and you should be able to jump into most of them with very little problem. my recommendations

Justice League
Batman
Batman & Robin
Flash
Wonder Woman
Action Comics
Green Lantern


A little away from the Justice League and their members, Swamp Thing has probably been the best book out of the entire relaunch, and Animal Man is right up there too.

with Marvel, it depends, Civil War might be the best jumping off point for the entire universe, but i can give you better recommendations if you have a specific character you want to read

Animal Man has been very good. I have gotten Swamp Thing recommended to me by several people. I am going to dive into it eventually. I have also been reading the new Winter Soldier ongoing.

My monthly pulls are:
Uncanny X-Force
Winter Soldier
Animal Man

I pull trades periodically for:
Chew

I am also making my way through:
100 Bullets
The Chronicles of Wormwood

Also try out: Pride of Baghdad

I'm reading Avengers vs X-Men (using this reading order - http://www.squidoo.com/avengers-vs-x-men) and so far i'm enjoying it. I haven't read a lot of X-Men lately so i'm not sure if Cyclops is being written out of character or not, but he's definitely coming off like a mad man.

Despite having not read many of the Captain America books, i'm in love with the character. I used to think he was cheesy, but after reading Civil War (over a year ago) the dude has jumped from not liked to one of my top five heroes. So far i'm liking what i've read of him in AvX. Unlike many I enjoyed the Captain America movie a lot as well and liked how Steve Rogers was portrayed.

I'm at "011 Avengers #25", btw.
