Random comics-related things


Didn’t Geoff Johns do a run on Avengers around that same era that was well liked? I never cared for the Avengers until Millar and Bendis wrote them. So I’m not particularly familiar with anything before.


Not appropriate for children, I would have thought…



If he has access to an iPad or equivalent, I recommend a Marvel Unlimited subscription (maybe it’s a birthday present).

There’s no adult/mature-readers material included from what I can see, and while it’s not comprehensive there’s still so much content.


I guess you’re right. I do remember hearing about that scene now.

Yeah, that does sound confusing. Hm. So maybe select trades, and not the omnibus.


I got into (American superhero) comics with Busiek’s Avengers (around age 13). I loved that it had depth and history and was part of a wider world that it gives you windows into.

The Morgan story comes after you get the team reintroduced, especially the main players, and if he’s familiar with the movie guys - you know, can recognise Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch at least - I think he’ll be fine.

No, the website specifically bills it as a “special four-day event”:
