The funny thing about the book is that its technically the very first in continuity story post Secret Wars. But when it came out it was basically sent out to die (from what I remember) since it was an ogn. Plus it came out at the exact same time as Bendis's Age of Ultron which got most of the promotion, since it was also at the same time as the Avengers Age of Ultron movie lol.

I havent read it since it came out, but I need to read it again after finishing Hickman's Avengers and Secret Wars. I do remember it being heavily reliant on knowing a lot of Ultron's past stories. But even with that said, I still think it was a much better Ultron story compared to Bendis's.
oooh verry interesting. I had forgotten all about that. Bendis's Age of Ultron is one of the worst comics I've read and I say that as Bendis *and* Hitch fan. Rage of Ultron is significantly better.
I saw this pop up on cmx awhile back and thought it sounded interesting, based on this right up I'll have to check it out.

As someone who is not a big Brubaker reader, I really enjoyed this actually. I enjoyed the twist (which was probably obvious to anyone else who has read all the Bru/Phillips stuff) and thought the story was interesting. Gonna echo your sentiments on the colors, I really dug the look of the book and the color palette, it really served the story well I think.
Let me know what you think about About Bettys Boob. I had originally wanted to pick it up while I was in France a couple years ago but had limited space left in my bag so I had been looking forward to it for some time.

Are Bru and Phillips gonna put out ogns from now on?

I returned to reading comics yesterday. Now I have a toothache. Explain that. Didn't happen when I was reading Shonen Jumps.

I knew the Marvel Unlimited app was bad but it's shocking how craptacular it is compared to the DC Universe app. Started reading through Crisis on Infinite Earths and it's remarkable how smooth it is, and of course the quality (thanks tim). Maybe we'll get lucky and Marvel will actually improve MU in response but I doubt it.

As someone who uses both apps, I am very confused by this post. The DC app has trouble with the smallest custom lists, crashing all the time. The lists of comics that are large (Batman, for example) load very slowly, and the search is slow and comes up with strange results. About the only thing I’d like from MU is more than one reading list.

This is on iOS, though, so maybe you’re talking about a different platform.

Red Widow has been back in Aaron's Avengers, especially in the most recent arc before WotR.
It's apparently a different Red Widow and the old one (with the electricity powers) is being forgotten.

I like the first two issues but then it quickly goes off the rails.

that time some total rando popped up in a GAF thread and spilled the entire first issue of Civil War II is still my favorite leak and iirc it was months before the event actually started so how that guy knew about it will forever be a mystery
The best part was that all the speculation and rumors led to Sam Humphries being accused of being the leaker since he jumped ship to DC right before.

Catched up on ASM and Hunted is a really good Arc so far. My only gripe would be that there is no mention of the animal themed mutants like Wolverine but that is a nitpick.

Hi guys,

Always wanted to start reading comics. But I have no idea where to start and what should I read. And now with Endgame hype, I am even more interested.

I am more interested in Marvel (mostly spider-man). But no harm if you can recommend anything good or interesting. I just want to get started and explore to and to find out what kind of comic I actually like.

The current Amazing Spider-man is a good read.

JMS' Spiderman run is good

Started on Plague of Frogs omni 4. Got me thinking about the character arc of Johann.
After that arc with the ghost he falls in love with, the whole impression of him has changed. It went from stoic time-displaced character (which I guess is not really a character trait) to bit of a creep/asshole. It is a little understandable for sure, but still a little unsettling to see for a main character. I am sure there is going to be some redemption arc in the future but I guess everyone in BPRD is broken in some way. Except Abe. Abe is always cool.
