I have a question about reading comics. I looked up Avengers vs. X-Men to see what it was about and saw it was its own mini series of comics 1-12.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avengers_vs._X-Men

But then the page also says that there are a bunch of tie-ins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avenger...itles_involved

Now to get the full story, do you have to read every single one of those extra comic books, or can you just read the main mini series?

One thing I've never liked about comics is that you have to read books outside of the specific series you might be interested in and it becomes a complete mess. How would you even figure it out if you didn't have the internet?

Main series for the full story. Tie-ins just tell it from a different perspective. You'll be fine if you read the main series and nothing else.

That artist really made him look like Mark Strong. Too bad Mark Strong has played way too many villains, otherwise I'd think he'd be a good choice.

AvX wasn't that amazing to begin with so its definitely not necessary to read the tie-ins. I read all the tie-ins for Civil War, but that was a much bigger event. I'd probably do the same if i read Fear Itself. But AvX was relatively small despite the major outcome.

i.e., no popping up in some bullshit alternate universe storyline just so marvel can milk more cash from the situation.


last time i checked, the native american guy who croaked in the 70's was the only one who lived up to that towering potential.
