    Well, that flies in the face of claims by people complaining about how inaccessible comics must be to new readers (without having any kind of empirical evidence).

    I've only read the 1st OHC so far. So I am just about to start in on Secret Invasion.

    Mighty Avengers made me appreciate Bendis's writing even more than I already had. If you go back and look at Daredevil, New Avengers, and Mighty Avengers, they are all written in distinctly different styles. If I hadn't been paying attention to who wrote what, I would have been surprised if someone told me they were all written by the same person.

    Mighty Avengers is so much more light hearted and colorful in tone and delivery. I don't normally like thought balloons, but they are used so well here.

    I've been reading the whole Marvel-616 line in trade form since the trades were standardized in early 2004. I'm missing pre-Disassembled Iron Man (I don't think it was ever printed) and The Prelude to House of M Excalibur trade. It's pretty fantastic to see the whole tapestry at work over such a time period. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I have been enjoying it.

    This has inspired me to reread my New Avengers HCs.

    Yeah. I loved LOVED Planet Hulk. It was just a good old-fashioned sci-fi yarn. I know some people complain about how many of the themes are seen elsewhere, but great work doesn't have to be completely original... it just has to be originally derivative. That is what I like about Planet Hulk. I like how it takes all these elements of classic stories and merges them into one big self-contained epic. And the brutal ending! Wow.

    So after reading Planet Hulk, I read World War Hulk. It was good, but honestly, I didn't like it as much. I liked all the stuff with Amadeus Cho and Hercules. But overall, I felt it diminished some of the power of Planet Hulk.

    While I'm not crazy about how far Tony goes during/after Civil War, post-Civil War New Avengers holds a special place in my heart. The Marvel Universe was a REALLY crazy place at that time. Yu really made that team badass, too.
