I used to be able to grab the page jpgs from Firefox's cache after loading the comic. That hasn't worked in a while.

I don't think it's a bad except for going pretty low res on double page spreads. You should check out the Marvel Unlimited reader. Woof.

Ugh I am so sick of Dark Reign/Siege, and I'm binge reading through them. I can't imagine what it was like being trapped in that for like a year and a half real time.

I really enjoyed that era, especially after Secret Invasion. Just catching up on Remender's Punisher now, I like it even more.

e: Have you been reading Secret Warriors? That a great part of it.

Oh as for a question what are the main Avengers books post Civil War? I know they split into the official and secret teams, but every time there's a huge event they split or change the Avengers books, it seems.

Bendis kept up on the mainline Avengers book right up till Hickman in the Marvel NOW!.
So, New Avengers and Mighty Avengers up through Secret Invasion, Dark Avengers and New Avengers during Dark Reign, Avengers and New Avengers from there till AvX, then Hickmania.

There was also Secret Avengers after Dark Reign starting with Ed Brubaker writing, which is a lot of fun.

There was a lot of fudging to get most of those centennials.

I think there was a Brian Bendis reply to a question on how exactly some title or other added up to it's milestone number, and it was real silly.

It was amazing that Morrison even attempted to contextualize and legitimize Batman's ridiculous history. Even though most of the wacky adventures were relegated to isolation experiment hallucinations, it was a feat.

It's covered a little in the last All-New X-Men or Guardians of the Galaxy in prep for Rucka's Teen Cyclopes and Space Dad comic.

e: Does current Rachel Summers know she'd been with grown up Franklin in the future? It hasn't been alluded to in any modern X-Men of Fantastic Four story I've read.

Wonder Woman, Action Comics, Aquaman, Flash and Shazam! collections.

Absolutely. Green Lantern and Batman Inc were really the only series' that weren't fresh starts at #1 (Their writers still had to finish their massive sagas from pre-N52.)

The Marvel NOW! stuff is also similarly set up to be new reader friendly across the line on all the reset volumes.

Sounds a lot like Joe the Barbarian, except that's about a kid who's hallucinating. And I never finished the story, but that ending sounds a bit much for it (though the author did do that twin part in New X-Men).

USM 200 is going to have a tribute to his life or something. There's apparently a SHOCKING ENDING, but if Peter is getting resurrected it's not apparent from what we know about the Ultimate relaunch.
They're going to do a Spider-Men sequel if you'd like to see Miles interact with a Peter Parker.

Teenage Fansub
Jan 28, 2006



Peter USM:
Ultimate Spider-Man 1-133 (ends with Ultimatum event)
Ultimatum Spider-Man Requiem 1-2
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 1-15, 150-160
Ultimate Comics Fallout 1-4 (Miles introduced in #4)

Miles USM:
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man (Vol. 2/All-New Spider-Man) 1-28 + Spider-Men 1-5 (616 Peter and Miles team up)
Cataclysm Ultimate Spider-Man 1-3
Ultimate Spider-Man 200 (Peter remembrance special)

Ultimate Marvel NOW! re-launch (still Miles):
Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man 1-
All-New Ultimates 1- (The current USM cast + Kitty Pryde. Written by Michel Fiffe)

If you don't want to catch all the way up, the Miles stuff is a good jumping on point (or probably just the new series if Ultimate NOW! relaunches are anything like the Marvel NOW! relaunches.)

So, I might be marked as a heretic for saying this, but after reading the first two volumes of Sandman for the first time, I'm feeling like this series is just the most over-rated tripe. I mean, it's okay, but so far does not live up to the hype. Does it get better?

Try volume 3. It's a group of fantastic stand-alone stories with the main characters in the periphery.
I've been reading since the digital sale a few months ago. I'm up to Brief Lives now and the four issues in Dream Country are definitely my favorites.

I dunno about the earliest, but The Trial of The Flash was a famously drawn out story for the time.
It takes up a whole 592 page Showcase collection by itself.

That art continues into the New 52 Batwoman series. The artist, JH Williams takes over writing it from Greg Rucka and only gets time to draw every other arc, but it stays pretty good till he leaves at #24.

Some of it was really interesting like the issue about Element Girl.

I heard somebody write into the iFanboy podcast about her age when she hooked up with The Falcon in the last issue of Cap, but I, like the people on the podcast can't remember her being presented as a kid (e: at the end of the arc), though maybe there is something in there.
I know he was on the planet for ten years. Pretty sure the was 'adult' at the end of it.

Mr. Maltose posted:

She looked like 8~10 when Steve first broke out with the baby in Cap, but a major issue is that asking a comic book artist to draw a child is such a crapshoot she might have been 5 or 15.

That'd make her around 20 with the time that passed, right?
