Comic TPB Status Update #8

Since the last update, I have read:

from The New Defenders Vol. 1: Defenders 122-125

The original Defenders leave, and Beast takes charge of a mix of old and new members. (Back in the 1980s I didn’t actually start reading until #126 I think, when the title officially changed to “The New Defenders.” I think I picked it up to find out what the original X-Men where up to.)

Probably last comic status update for a while, as trying to get focus back onto RPGs.

Comic TPB Status Update #7

Since the last update I have read:

from Essential Uncanny X-Men Vol. 4: Uncanny X-Men 169-173 (Morlocks! Wolverine’s Wedding! The debut of “punker Storm!”)

punker Storm

from New Mutants Classic Vol. 1: The New Mutants 5-7

This is a period in which it seems to be read a couple X-Men, read a couple New Mutants as the storylines take place in a very specific order.

(NEXT UP: The New Defenders Vol. 1, which has 3 of the original X-Men in it – Beast, Angel, and Iceman. Then more X-Men and on to Avengers – Absolute Vision Book 1.)

Comic TBP Status Update #6

Better post one of these before they get away from me.

from Epic Iron Man – The Enemy Within: Iron Man 169-170

from Incredible Hulk – Regression: Incredible Hulk 286-290, Incredible Hulk Annual 12

from Essential Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4: Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider Man 80-83

from Thor by Walter Simonson Vol. 1: Thor 337-341 (the Beta Ray Bill saga! This was right before I actually started reading Thor back in 1983, so I’d never actually read it before. Awesome stuff.)

Trying to slow down a bit if possible, as don’t want to get ahead of some books that are being released soon. Especially waiting for “The Amazing Spider-Man Black Costume Saga Book 1” but that is still a whole month away 😦

(NEXT PLANNED: back to Essential Uncanny X-Men Vol. 4 and New Mutants Classic Vol. 1. There’s going to be a lot of alternating back and forth between the mutant titles coming up.)

Comic TPB Status Update #5

Since the last update I have read:

from Incredible Hulk – Pardoned: Incredible Hulk 282-285

from Essential Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4: Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man 75-79

from Thing Classic Vol. 1: The Thing #1 (note: as best I can tell this probably should be read before Fantastic Four 251, as the suggested reading order I am using plops it right in the middle of a multi-issue FF adventure in the Negative Zone)

(NEXT PLANNED: starting Incredible Hulk – Regression, back to Epic Iron Man – The Enemy Within, more Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4)
