    Getting
    -Avengers #27: I know the guy is a legend, but the cover work Simonson has done for Avengers hasn't really done it for me. Hopefully his interiors will be better.
    -New Avengers #27: I guess they missed the memo that it's Avengers v. X-Men, not Avengers v. Avengers. :)
    -Ultimate Comics X-Men #13: I'll really miss Nick Spencer. I liked where he took the title. But I've heard good things about Brian Wood, so I have hope.
    -Avenging Spider-Man #8: Wait, when did this cross over with the other Spidey books? Grr..
    -Captain America #13
    -Winter Soldier #6: Brubaker an Lark back together? Hell. Yes.
    -Winter Soldier #7
    -Daredevil #14
    -Punisher #12
    -Uncanny X-Force #26
    -X-Factor #237 & 238

    -Deadpool #56
    -Ultimate Comics Spider-Man by Brian Michael Bendis vol. 2 Premiere HC


    May Get/Not Getting But Worth Note
    -AvX: Vs. #3 (of 6): As with AvX, the preview stuff is looking better, but still unsure until it comes out. Juggerlossus is still idiotic, though.
    -Avengers v. X-Men #5 (of 12): That amazing Cheung cover sadly makes me hate that horrid Romita Jr. preview art even more.
    -Avengers v. X-Men #6 (of 12)
    -Dark Avengers #175 & 176:
    I dropped Thunderbolts a little while ago, and the new direction isn't getting me back. The recent Dark Avengers arc in New Avengers was decent, but the line-up was really reaching for it then. A series of them? No.
    -Spider-Men #1 & 2 (of 5): If it's Ultimate-related, I'll get it in trade, like I've always done with Ultimate Spider-Man. If not, I'm not interested.
    -Hit-Girl #1 (of 5): Since it's not Kick-Ass proper, I may trade wait just to avoid the insane delays Kick-Ass has.
    -Ant-Man: Season One Premiere HC: I like the idea of Season One, but was anyone really clamoring for an Ant-Man one?
    -X-Man: The Man Who Fell To Earth TPB: I like the series when it first came out, but something tells me it doesn't hold up well. I am tempted.

    WINTER SOLDIER #6-7

    looks like i drop wolverine and the x-men before i officially get caught up on it. i read the first 2 issues, and i only feel indifference and simply just dont care what happens. i have no idea what it would take marvel to get me to read an x-men book (a big name would help, but my x-men "problem" goes way beyond that). unfortunately fury max is a limited series, i havent read ennis' previous fury series (which is supposedly bad), but i think this is his redemption if the previous series was indeed bad.

    Will get:
    Amazing Spider-Man #687, 688
    Ultimate Spider-Man #11


    Might get:
    Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man #3

    Still think it's a bit confusingly named for those two Ultimate Spidey-titles... maybe rename it "Miles Morales, the <adjective> Spider-Man" or something? (Yeah, it'd break with the "Ultimate universe" naming scheme...)

    It seems slightly backward to rename the series that inspired the show just so the comic tie-in doesn't have the same name. Even if the Miles volume is new, the Ultimate Spider-Man brand has been around for almost 12 years. It would just make more sense to re-name the comic the show is based around. Like "Ultimate Spider-Man Adventures" or "Tales of the Ultimate Spider-Man."

    The last Ennis "Fury" series was awesome, and if you enjoyed Ennis' Punisher, you should enjoy this.

    I will be reading:

    Amazing Spider-Man #687 & 688
    Avengers #27
    Avengers Academy #31 & 32
    Avengers Assemble #4
    Avengers vs. X-Men #5:
    I bet that this mini-series gets better AFTER the Phoenix takes a host (that'll be where the plot twist kicks in, I bet).
    AvX #3
    Captain America #13
    Daredevil #14:
    Honey, I shrunk the Daredevil!
    Dark Avengers #175 & 176: So wait, Dark Avengers is replacing Thunderbolts?!?
    Fury MAX #3
    Hulk #53 & 54
    Incredible Hulk #9 & 10
    Journey Into Mystery #639 & 640:
    Double issues for everything this month!!
    New Avengers #27
    Punisher: Official Index to the Marvel Universe TPB:
    My last Index work appears here, in some of the bonus material available only in this TPB. Farewell, Index. :(
    Scarlet Spider #6
    Secret Avengers #28
    The Punisher #12
    Venom #19
    Wolverine #308
    Wolverine and the X-Men #12

    and whatever else strikes my fancy...

    does the punisher marvel universe index also mention which punisher comics have "hilarious" moments? i think new comers to the punisher would love to know what issues we see frank going grocery shopping and frank running wolverine over with a steam roller. those were the days. i wish we'd get some new "comedy" punisher stories/moments these days.

    The "Frank running Wolverine over with a steam roller" issue is definitely in there. Each issue in the book has a synopsis of what occured in that issue, and there's also a 'Notes" section which often mentions obscure facts about the issue in question. It was really a fun project to work on, and I'm sad it ended. :sad:
