    Weird how I've been skipping this thread. Over the past year I've been digging around a bit, and coming up with a nice box of old (mostly '70s) books. A few things from the '80s also... JLI mostly, but nothing new.

    Picked up Roots of the Swamp Thing book yesterday. Very nice! House of Secrets #92, plus the first 13 issues in a hard cover.

    Went a little crazy today, but I got some cool stuff:

    • Uncanny X-Men 504, 505, 506, 507 (I figure I need to catch up eventually)
    • Marvel Masterworks: Uncanny X-Men vol. 2 (issues 101-110)
    • Marvel Masterworks: Uncanny X-Men vol. 6 (issues 141-150)
    • Avengers Disassembled TPB (again, trying to catch up with the modern stories and the guy at the comic books store told me that this one was "required reading")
    • House of M TPB (another book I was told I "needed" to read in order to catch up on current books. I'm hoping he was telling the truth and not just trying to clear back stock)
    • The Avengers (original series) 175, 179, 180, 182, 184, 185, 188, 189, 191, 192, 193, 200, 202, 203, 205, 206, 207, 209, 210, 211 (trying to get a full run of Beast's Avengers days)

    Again, trying to catch up on all my Marvel reading so I've picked up:

    New Avengers: Breakout TPB
    Civil War TPB
    Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War TPB
    Iron Man: Civil War TPB
    Captain America: Civil War TPB
    The Death of Captain America TPB vol. 1
    The Might Avengers: The Ultron Initiative TPB
    Secret Invasion TPB

    I'm mainly trying to hit the big milestone events in chronological order, then going back and reading more as it catches my interest. For instance, I really like what I've read so far with the Mighty Avengers, so I'll probably go back and try to catch up on that entire series. Also, I want to read the rest of the Death of Captain America story and get the background on the new Bucky Cap. I'll also try to read all of the New Avengers stories leading up to Secret Invasion, then I'll decide if I want to continue with it.

    I'm trying to catch up on the last 15 years of Marvel history, so I'm still open to suggestions here. And, yes, I already know they turned Beast into the Lion King.

    I hope I'm not the only one checking out X-Men Forever. Picks up from '91's X-Men #3.

    A hell of a lot better than the current X-Books. Ape Beast, Shadowcat alive, No craptastic Storm/Black Panther marriage, Rogue w/ Ms. Marvel's powers. Among other things. Here's a couple previews.

    X-Men Forever #1

    Claremont returns to his legendary run with X-Men Forever! The shockwaves after the death of Magneto are still reverberating all over the world. Attempting to heal the rift between man and mutant kind, Professor Xavier volunteers his X-Men to go on a mission to capture Magneto's sole remaining Acolyte, Fabien Cortez! But with Nick Fury -- and the entire world -- watching over their shoulders, the stakes have never been higher for Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Gambit, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Storm, Beast, and Professor X.

    X-Men Forever #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $3.99.

    I bought Cable #100, to basically complete my Marvel 100s "series." I am forgetting about Journey into Mystery 100 (on cost) and older titles like Strange Tales or from the pre-1962 era (when superhero titles began again). Unless new titles get to that special 100th issue, but even then I may pass on them.
