It was a huge moment for me when Marvel Heroes Reborn, which up to that point had been Fantastic Four/Iron Man/Hulk, replaced Hulk (it was late-PAD era, not very riveting for 10/11 year old me, apart from killing off Betty abruptly which made no sense to me) with Busiek/Perez Avengers:
Those Dark House Star Wars comics seemed to have been a great gateway into the hobby. I know several people who got in later on than I did because of them.
I’ve never read an issue of Exiles (from any writer, not just Claremont), but I don’t hate all of Claremont’s “newer” stuff. I liked New Excalibur and that Nightcrawler series.
I highly recommend Winnick's Exiles original run. I love it so much. Bedards run was decent enough too.I’ve never read an issue of Exiles (from any writer, not just Claremont), but I don’t hate all of Claremont’s “newer” stuff. I liked New Excalibur and that Nightcrawler series.
Maybe his Exiles actually is bad (some of his other “newer” stuff certainly is), but I think he gets unfairly pooped on sometimes, like he never did anything good in the later years of his career.
Marvel does Gods work by keeping him exclusive to ensure he writes absolutely nothing.As for Claremont I have hated most of his newer stuff dating back to X-Treme X-Men. Though his 04 Uncanny run where he brought Psylocke back to life was okay. I have not read his Excalibur series. They are the one X-team I've never really paid much attention to.
Do you buy the current floppies from Panini? I feel they're too expensive for me
