sneakronicity said: I’d be interested to know what you think of Marvel 1602. I bought and read it for the same reason, but found it rather meh. I actually had quite a few issues with it, to be honest.I figure I will probably spam the hell out of tumblr when I sit down to read Miles, 1602, and possibly the Runaways (I read like the first three issues of the Runaways once, and I didn’t care for them, so I am giving them another try, because dammit, I want to enjoy one of the few mainstream comics that has queer characters in it). I tried to read 1602 once before, but I was brand new to Marvel and therefore very confused about the references, so I decided to give it another try. You should tell me what your issues were! I am a killjoy who has issues with The Greatest Batman Story Ever Told, so you know, we can hang out in our killjoy boat. I’ll bring gluten free cookies.
quakenbake said: yeah! miles is the greatest. you will not regret taking a chance on him.I hate the Ultimates Marvel Universe so much (because of Ultimates Steve), AND ALL THE 616 THINGS BENDIS HAS WRITTEN MAKE ME CRY, but literally everytime I see a scan of Miles, I am like “But I should read that.” So I am definitely giving it a try, because he seems great. And today I saw some scan of him hugging some guy? And I thought “aww, friendships? Awww” and so in the bookstore today, I said “aw, yes, will buy.”
Used Bookstore TPB Haul for the Day:
1. The first trade in Miles’ run of Spider-Man. I AM READING SOMETHING
SET IN THE UNIVERSE THAT HAS ULTIMATE STEVE ROGERS IN IT, GOD SAVE ME,
I MIGHT NOT MAKE IT. (But Miles seems awesome, so here we go.)
2. Runaways “Teenage Wasteland.”
3. Red Hood: The Lost Days. Already bought in single issues, but you
know. Excuse to re-read
4. 3 Wonder Woman trades - 2 from Rucka (Praise His Name and Praise
This Run of Wondy) and the awful Jodi Picoult run. The last one was
cheap, what can I say.
5. Marvel 1602. Everyone loves it, so I thought it was time I finally
sat down and read it.
Went for my daily walk. Passed the comic store. Went in and browsed. Had to listen to an anti-union commercial AND a Rush Limbaugh radio program.
Ugh, my little redneck town.
But on the plus side, I scored three Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD, a War Machine, a Heroes for Hire (1997) and one of the few WCA that I haven’t read. All for $3.20. Decentish.
