Snick's comics to-read list

For my reference. Not in any kind of order either chronologically or in terms of priority. A lot of the X stuff is there so I can get a general lay of the X-verse landscape over the last fifteen years or so, and is not so much selected for quality (although at least some of them are supposed to be good). And this is all Marvel, obviously.

X Things
- Morrison's New X-Men (#114-something, I'm on #120)
- Astonishing X-Men, from Whedon to Liu
- House of M
- Messiah Complex / Messiah War / Second Coming (on general principles, and to prep for C&XF)
- the current C&XF run (to prep for crossover)
- Previous run of X-Men, just 'cause
- Peter David's X-Factor (for Monet and because people say it's good)
- Dark Phoenix Saga and bunch of other Claremont tbd
- Backstories for Bling and Pixie and the other X-kids of that generation. New X-Men, I think? I have it written down somewhere...

Non-X Things
- Runaways
- NEXTWAVE (I think I spelled/punctuated that correctly...)
- Dan Slott's She-Hulk
- a couple of Black Widow things
- Daredevil, apparently, because everyone tells me how good it is - tried and failed
- Sean McKeever's Young Allies
- Bendis/Maleev Spider-woman

Someone else was just telling me about Nextwave today. It sounds hilarious.

Yeah, it sounds pretty excellent, if of dubious canonicity (paraphrase of someone who was telling me about it).

Yeah, it's a bit outside continuity or something, right?

I guess? I think it's mostly that the basic set-up isn't quite canon. (I started reading it this evening, and the head of H.A.T.E. is a guy named Dirk Anger. So.)

Haha yeah I heard about Dirk Anger. Are you liking it so far?

Oh, and I meant to ask, are you reading Pretty Deadly?

Oh gosh, Nextwave is so much fun. I highly recommend it. I read three issues and then went over to Amazon to put the series omnibus on my wish list.

I have Pretty Deadly on order, but it won't get shipped for another two weeks. (I'm on a once-a-month shipping schedule, to cut down postage costs.)

What kind of stuff happens in it?

I tried to buy it today but the store was out! Hopefully I can find it somewhere else.

Uh, well, it's an action comic, but sort of a parody? So in the first two-issue arc, we're fight Fin Fang Foom, a big dragony creature wearing underpants who's introduced with the text, "Has been burning with the need to mate since 1956! Has absolutely no genitals whatsoever! Oh, you cannot imagine how annoyed he is."

That's pretty much the tone of the entire comic.
