    June 21, 2013 8:05 pm Great article. I'm similarly occupied with a family and job, so I only read what I really enjoy. If the books starts piling up, I make cuts. I also read at night, usually before bed.
    November 26, 2012 7:30 pm I'm totally with you, Mr. Reid. This is the only Marvel NOW! title I'm excited for.
    November 26, 2012 7:21 pm I'm dropping all my Marvel titles except Captain Marvel. I'm not a Marvel NOW! hater or boycotter; I might pick up Avengers Arena. Going to stick with my DC titles and use the extra money from my comic budget to explore other titles and publishers.
    November 19, 2012 8:29 pm Wonder Woman looks good this week. BQ: Watch the Lions lose. It's a Michigander / Michiganian tradition.
    November 19, 2012 7:36 pm I'm slashing several comics to fit my personal budget. Most 3.99 books or series with spin-offs (I feel like I have to read them all) will be cut. I'm using Marvel NOW! as a jumping off point; I want to wait and see what's good and also look into other books. My goal is to spend less and read what I really enjoy.
    November 18, 2012 9:25 pm Thanks everyone for the feedback! Short response: Was worried about continuity / renumbering, but makes sense, AND not a Marvel hater / boycot, just playing wait-and-see. Long response / my CSB: Thanks, Mr. Montgomery for explaining the Marvel NOW! movement succinctly. Even when I've asked my local comic store owner about it, he wouldn't give me a straight answer; he's a great guy but a bit of curmudgeon, especially about any major changes to comic books. Overall, I was feeling intimidated by Marvel's renumbering of several titles and had worries that I would need to be familiar with AvX or several previous story-lines in order to understand what was going on if I jumped into a new title. Additionally, I've lost interest in several of the Marvel comics that I have been reading, so I see Marvel NOW! as an opportunity to jump off and evaluate Marvel titles. I did something similar when DC relaunched with the New 52, and some of the books that I picked up from that are among my favorites. I also intend to spend less on comic books altogether. I might get some Marvel titles, but I plan to wait and see what's good.
    November 16, 2012 5:40 pm I'm about to drop all things Marvel (the whole Marvel NOW! thing just confuses me), but I've always been a fan of Morbius. I'm torn! @MisterKyleW: A black and white book would be fantastic!
    November 13, 2012 5:54 pm Yes! Break through role in that. Auditions and offered to play Wolverine over Jackman. Danzig is the new Wolverine.
    November 13, 2012 5:50 pm QTF: "I think the winner should be awarded with a ongoing series" Sounds good to me.
    November 13, 2012 5:48 pm I'm in. I know nothing is permanent in comics, but I find the high stakes here appealing.
