Agreed, Sentry is a stupid and overpowered character. I liked Ares too, he was growing on me.

yeah. he went from being a meathead anti-hercules to a well written character with some depth. have you read his mini series that set up his whole relationship with his kid?

I liked Ares ever since his run in with War Machine, when he made Rhoady his champion.

another new character that marvel has been trying to shove down our throats is The Hood. It really annoys me how they set him up as a major new bad guy, he's kinda lame imo.


p.s. if you haven't been reading daredevil you gotta check the latest storyline. it's incredible and easily one of my favorite titles right now. that and secret warriors.

Yup Daredevil is a (more) badass now. The Hood is hit or miss, but at least the next major villain should be Doom in Doomwar.

where do you guys get all your comics? are you reading them online? going to comic book stores? do you buy a new comic every week or so, or buy "graphic novels" or what? I'm just curious b/c I've been wanting to get back into them. When I was younger, I had a ton of Superman comics

at my hometown there was this awesome store that sold a crapload of comic books and Marvel and DC apparel/memorabilia as well as football, baseball and bball cards and figurines. I used to go there a lot, but don't live close anymore.

I work near a huge comic store so thats a plus. And before that my university was also near a huge comic store. Other than that, to catch up on stuff I torrent them and sometimes I check scans_daily for some previews.

I'm up to date with all my comics but I've been way to busy. So my question is what comic should I start reading first? (Marvel only).

I don't understand. You're up to date but you don't know what to read? Are you saying you own them but you haven't read any lately?

daredevil, secret warriors, the Seige event, avengers are gonna be restarting in a few months so will be a good jumping on point, x-force, capt america was pretty good last year but has fallen off past few months, iron man, thor. theres also about 25 deadpool titles right now, pick one and run with it.

I have a guy who hooks me up for a very cheap price. So yes I have all of them. But I've been to busy to start reading them. So I was wondering which ones I should start reading first.
