No one's gonna mention Hawkguy in this discussion? Seems like we should have gotten there already.

Seriously.

Lots of horror is on sale on Comixology right now. I'm picking up The Book of Chaos, which GrandmaFunk mentioned a couple weeks ago.

Locke & Key is also in sale, in case you somehow haven't bought it the last dozen times it's been mentioned here.

Morrison is writing THE Green Lantern and it looks like it will be f*cking bonkers. I'm getting New X-Men vibes for some reason.

I am very excited.

Caught up on X-Men Red and was really impressed. Tom Taylor is pretty great.

Thought, "Honey Badger and Wolverine are on the team, that reminds me that I should catch up on Wolverine."

It's still Tom Taylor.

It's a f*cking wonderful book.

Hell yeah, very keen to read this one.

I'm trying my best to trade wait, but goddamn the previews look great.

It's classic Morrison. The first issue whets the appetite. Wait if you can but ABSOLUTELY buy it when it's a trade.

Look at my avatar, you think I'd skip on something like that?!

Humble Bundle has a bundle of Darkness and a truckload of other comics.
Does anyone recommend this?

If you're looking for AAA-production S&M comics, you're in the right place!

It's a bit raunchy (fair warning) but I LOVED Sunstone. Sejic's art is the most amazing thing, and the story was surprisingly down-to-earth.

I guess there's a few I can't read on a plane.

You can, as long as you're strapped in.

Stjepan Sejic is indeed amazing! He did a comic that only made it ten or twelve issues a couple years ago called Death Vigil. It was kind of like his version of the X-Men. I loved it, and the art was of course a level above anything else you've ever seen. The dude is unreal.

+1 on Sejic's art. I ran into his stuff when following a random link to some of his funny DC comics. I discovered Sunstone that way and really enjoyed the story.

How dare you...

+1 for Death Vigil. I need to get the trade(s) for that since I missed a few issues.

A really fun thing about Dan Slott's Fantastic Four run is that, for whatever reason, my 6.5 year old daughter loves it and we're reading every issue together. Marvel put out some sort of promo thing a few months ago that had the first like 5-6 pages of a bunch of upcoming comics in it, and my daughter got it and flipped through it and was really excited about the Fantastic Four. Whenever I'm in a brick & mortar comic shop I try to grab her something, and a while back I got her a random issue of Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur that featured the Thing and the Human Torch so I guess that built some affinity for her? After she read the preview and was asking about it, I told her we could read the first issue together when it came out, and when we finished it she was jumping up and down excitedly chanting "they're back! they're back!" (the plot of the 1st issue was Ben and Johnny debating whether Reed, Sue, and the kids would ever return), and she's been similarly enthused about the subsequent issues (tho #3 took forever to come out for some reason?). I'm trying to stay cool about it, lest I scare her off or overwhelm her, but it's fun to have this thing to share with her. Yay comics.

Anyone reading Blackbird from Image Comics? I got the first issue and it looks really promising. It only just started so there’s only 2 issues out. I think I may end up with my first ever pull list to go physical. The art is gorgeous and may be worth a hard copy.

The art in Blackbird is amazing. I enjoyed the first issue. It is on my pull list out of sheer wonder and a love of the art style. I've still to read the second issue. Hopefully later today.

I caught up with Kelly Thompson's, Mr & Mrs X, when free time presented itself this week. It is and has been one of my favourite books. Love Rogue. Love Gambit. Great on their own, undoubtedly, but they are just brilliant together. And Kelly Thompson really gets the characters, and their interactions. I dig Kelly Thompson's work a lot. She was fantastic on Kate Bishop, and now Mr & Mrs X. Glad to see her on Uncanny X-Men!

Yet another Spiderman sale on Comixology. To be honest, I haven't ever really plunged into all the Spiderman books, and now I'm hopelessly lost. There even seem to be *two* Ultimate universe titles. What are the Spiderman "must-haves", from those of you who know? Thanks!

10 years of Dan Slott on Amazing.
Bendis' Ultimate run/ Miles Morales Ultimate run/ Miles Morales 616 run.

There you go. That's years of reading. Y'welcome.

Superior Spiderman!

like most of the best spiderman stories, it came from nuking the previous status quo and was hated at the time it was released. But with some distance it's such an interesting exploration of what it means to be spiderman and what it means to be peter parker.

it also leads the way into the original SpiderVerse event, which was a lot of fun.

Can anyone recommend a good resource for pricing comics for sale?

I'm helping clean out some closets at my parents' place and am working through two boxes of my old comics -- mostly X-Men stuff from the mid-90s, although there are a few other items in there too. I'll be bringing them back home with me, but I think I'd rather sell them than keep them.

as far as I can tell, unless you have a few specific #1s, 90s Marvel books are essentially worthless.. the supply heavily outweighs current collector demand(new readers will only buy trades or go digital)

you can use comicspriceguide to get an idea based on what some people are trying to sell a given issue for.. but finding a buyer is going to take more time/effort than what you might eventually recoup.

if you have a local shop they might throw you a few bucks for the lot.

otherwise, just give them to a kid or a library.

An independent comic book store is worth a try. Unless you'd like to eBay the lot, or a few select lots.

Anyone read the deadly class comics? Humble has a big bundle of them on sell.
