I love my little Ant-Man and Spidey/Human Torch digests, any other good books in the format? Not counting Runaways and Spider-Man :heart:'s Mary Jane since I've got them in oversized hardcover.

I'm not even sure there are any other Marvel digests besides those 4 titles.

Most of Sean McKeever's work, I believe.

Arana was digest. So was Scorpion (the new one, not the one that is now venom). I think Emma was a digest sized book too. The one about Emma Frost in HS...

Sentinel was pretty good, the best of the bunch, IMHO (If we aren't counting the two you mentioned). There are three of those out. I think they're worth picking up. Pretty fun all ages book.

Are you actually in line to buy these digests?

Believe it or not the Marvel Holiday special (the one with Spidey and the FF on it) has some excellent stories in it. Fing Fang Foom saves Christmas is in there!

The Mary Jane Digests that lead into Spidey Hearts Mary Jane are all really good.

Spellbinders was fun magic stuff, too.

Not Ant-man. I really hated that.

Well had you bothered to read the first post, I already said I have it and love it.

Does anyone know if Gravity and/or Sentinel are on the heavier paper? If they are, I want to wait and make sure I get the good printings, since I remember hearing that the Runaways got good paper on their newer printings.

I never had a problem with my Gravity digest.
Um, and any Marvel Adenture ones you can find for cheap or discount are worth it. I got a Marvel Age Spider-Man and a Spider-Man Team Up digest at Half priced Books, and both were 4 bucks. That's a steal of a deal there.

Spider-Girl is my favourite. Runaways is good but the early printings had poor paper quality that made the computer colouring look dark and messy.

Spider-Girl's great, and there's a ton of them out.

And there's so much story packed into each one, great value for money.

Power Pack. It's the best book Marvel is publishing regularly these days. There's several digests already.

And there's a Franklin Richards digest, too, I believe. The best book Marvel is publishing sporadically these days.

Marvel totally need to release Mini Marvels in a digest.

I'm actually pretty pumped for the "Spider-Girl Presents: Darkdevil and the Buzz" digest. Darkdevil's one of my favorite characters in her series, and I missed the mini and was never able to track it down.

That would be the best thing ever. That series totally skewers everything which is ridiculous about the Marvel Universe of today.

His origin is downright weird, but interesting. I'd love to see another mini-series.

YES! I forgot about that, I MUST get that one.

Definitely pick up Scorpion.

Also, I wouldn't hold my breath for reprints of any digest that isn't Runaways if I were you.

You would know, are any of your digests on the heavier paper?

So far my list is Gravity, Sentinel V1-3, and Franklin Richards.

I've been holding my breath for Inhumans v. 2 ever since you were taunted with the mock up... :scared:

Some are the earlier stock (Sentinel 1 & 2) some are slick paper (Inhumans, MJ 1) and some are the newer stock (Sentinel 3). Don't know which are which offhand, though, aside from those.

My first digest ever was recently Runaways (which I know you have.) I just wanted to point out two things:

1 - I love it and will be getting the rest!

2 - The spine came loose from the book and front/back cover came off. This happen to anyone else?

I wasn't asking asking how to fix it, just if it had happened to anyone else, but thanks for pointing out what I was already aware of.
