    Well, I decided to drop Uncanny X-Men and X-Men Legacy after Legacy's current arc and maybe Uncanny's post-current-arc, pre-AvX two-parter. I want to read Legacy involving She-Hulk, it is just that I'm going to reinforce the fact that I have a budget and want to focus on that Exiled crossover.

    My only real changes this month is that I dropped Ultimates. A few are still teetering, but only one official drop. Not like the house cleaning I did with my DC pull list.

    Getting
    -Avengers #26
    -Avenging Spider-Man #7
    -New Avengers #26: I like Bendis, but for some reason I fear him messing with Iron Fist's history.
    -Ultimate Comics X-Men #11
    -Ultimate Comics X-Men #12
    -Captain America #11 & 12
    -Winter Soldier #5
    -The Punisher #11
    -Daredevil #12: Chris Samnee on Daredevil? Oh. Heck. Yeah.
    -Daredevil #13
    -Uncanny X-Force #25
    -X-Factor #235 & 236
    -Deadpool #54
    -Deadpool #55


    May Get/Not Getting But Worth Note
    -Avengers vs. X-Men #3-4 (of 12): Waiting on the first issue/reviews to determine if I get it.
    -Captain America And Hawkeye #630 & 631: Still unsure if I'll keep this after the switch-over. Double shipping isn't helping.
    -Fury MAX #1 & 2: Eh, not sure. Wasn't too fond of Ennis' previous Fury minis.
    -Takio #1: Kind of wish they would have just continued these as a series of graphic novels. The first was actually pretty decent.
    -X-Men: Operation Zero Tolerance HC: This was around when I got out of comics for a while, so it'd be nice to kind of pick up around that time. That $75 price tag is rough, though.

    Yes, this is the most Marvel I've bought in one month in ages...

    Does anyone know if the Spidey Annual's part of the "Ends of the Earth" storyline?

    According to the solicits, nope. But it is a 48-page $3.99 issue co-starring the Avengers.

    Been a while since I participated in one of these threads. Yes, I'm still getting EVERY SINGLE MARVEL COMIC that comes out each month, thanks to my work for Marvel Comics, so yeah, I'm reading Marvel like crazy each month...

    Still, maybe I can point out what I've been focusing on reading each month (because I can't read them all. At least not yet). Here's what I've been enjoying though:

    Amazing Spider-Man #685 & 686: I just finished reading "Spider Island", which was awesome!! Dan Slott is truly on his game as of late...
    Astonishing X-Men #50
    Avengers #26
    Avengers Academy #29 & 30:
    I know fans are tired of double-shipping series, but this one is at least still $2.99!
    Avengers vs. X-Men #3 & 4: Yes, I am checking it out...
    Captain America #11 & 12
    Daredevil #12 & 13:
    Another $2.99 title!
    Fury MAX #1: I LOVED Garth Ennis' "Fury: Peacemaker" mini-series a few years back, and it's Ennis doing a "MAX" title. Definitely looking forward to this!
    Hulk #51 & 52: Another $2.99 title!
    Incredible Hulk #7.1 & 8
    Invincible Iron Man #516 & 517
    John Carter: The Gods of Mars #3
    New Avengers #26
    The Punisher #11
    Venom #17 & 18:
    Definitely the surprise hit of the last year, for me!
    Wolverine #306 & 307
    Wolverine and the X-Men #10 & 11


    NOTEWORTHY:

    Marvel's re-releasing my favorite of their Graphic Novels: Amazing Spider-Man: Parallel Lives. Strange that they are bringing it back, considering how much trouble Marvel's gone to for erasing the Spidey marriage from existence.

    And AN UPDATE ON MY WRITING:

    With the Marvel Index ending, I've picked up some work writing entries for the Marvel Handbook line of books. So my name will start appearing in the credits with either this TPB #5, or in next month's TPB #6.

    Also, in the TPB design department, I helped put together the contents of the "Iron Man: Revenge of the Mandarin" Premier HC. Classic Kurt Busiek goodness from the late '90's!

    Apparently, the official movie tie-ins cover the stuff that takes place in-between or before all the MCU movies. The Road to the Avengers trade coming out this month collects the various tie-in/adaptations from the previous movies. The Avengers Prelude comics coming out in March & April (plus the digital-only release Fury's Big Week) apparently
    Then, there's stuff outside the movies and AvX to promote brand awareness/sell more stuff like Avengers Assemble, which is simply the 616 equivalents of the movie cast in their own comic; all those Avengers "Art Appreciation" variant covers in April; and May's Hulk Smash Avengers 5-week event, which kinda reminds me of that episode of the Fairly Oddparents where Crimson Chins from various eras (WW2-era Chin, Disco Chin, 80s ultra-violence Chin, etc) got together.

    the stuff i think we'll be missing in regards to cap in the movies is his "adjustment" period. the teaser at the end of captain america makes it seem like he's thrown right into action after being revived in the present day. i really wanted there to be a second captain america film before the avengers movie. in the second film, i wanted that to be cap's "adjustment" story and focus on that.

    I can't wait for that Venom arc. I'm loving Circle of Four right now, but the next arc sounds truly epic.

    If I had more money I'd pick up Daredevil. I've heard good things and I've always wanted to get into DD.
