Annihilation Conquest was awesome.

Can't wait for Galactic Guardians

Also, I hope all Daredevil fans picked up the Black Tarantula one shot last week

You mean Guardians of the Galaxy. I know, it all sounds the same. I can't wait for it also. I has a huge fan of the orginal GotG back in the day. But the new team of Adam Warlock, Gamora,Quasar, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord is a pretty kick-ass cast for the team.

I did perfer Annihilation over Annihilation Conquest but I loved the re-introduction of Starlord. I just wonder when Thanos will pop back into the picture.

Can't wait to see how the events in space tie into the events on Earth.

Hmmm, I don't know about that. But if you have read the second Secret Invasion comic, you find that things are not as they seem in the skrull ship and something about Hawkeye(Clint Barton, Ronin)

Good thread, I will try to post every Wedensday the Marvel comics. Also, the Guardians of the Galaxy look kick ass. Oh, and Rodimus, X-Force 3,X-Men Divided We Stand 1, Avengers The Initiative 11-12, Captain America 37, Hulk 3, and Last Defenders 2 are really good.:D

I read X-men Divided we Stand #1 and I wasn't a big fan. Besides Nightcrawler it was a bunch of X-Men who I either don't know or don't care about. But then again I've just now gotten into the X-Titles. And thanks for the nice comment about the thread. I'm aways open for feedback.

The Last panel of New Avengers #40 was mind-bursting. I kinda had an idea but who would've guessed
Spoiler


With that said I agree with manthing. While it was a great comic the only aspect that tied it to an Avengers title was the very last panel. Still it was brillant. And as for Mighty Avengers it's cool to see what Nicks been up to, but then I have to agree with Manthing again, great comic, but why Avengers? These would've made more sense as one-shots.

Do you guys get your stuff from a local store or from an online one? I used to get them online with a sweet discount, but had to wait at least a month from when they came out. Didn't mind too much as I don't really have anyone to talk to about comics.

Uh... trick question... dcfox waxes and JFD hasn't sprouted nub fuzz yet.

I get my subscription online. It sucks waiting a month, but when I do get them it's like Luke Cage would say, "Sweet Christmas"

Yeah, well I have not read the New Avengers one yet, but I never would have guessed that. But, as I posted earlier, when you read the Secret Invasion #1 and 2 things are really not as they seem. Ok, here is what happened in Secret Invasion#2. DO NOT read unless it is killing you to know a little bit of what happened
Spoiler
With that said, after reading the what I wrote above I can't wait for the next comic. There is also a REALLY interesting piece at the end of the comic about NY, and it isn't looking good for earth. I would say the score so far is Skrulls:2 Heroes:0

There are several websites with some good summaries/reviews such as IGN and Comicbook Resources. Now you can always try a podcast...ohh I don't know www.aboutheroes.com per say. Damn that was a shameless plug. Did anybody else enjoy The Invincible Iron Man #1 comic as much as I did? Along with The Boys 18 and Rann Thannagar Holy War it was my favorite book this week.
www.aboutheroes.com Best comicbook podcast ever!!!

It goes pretty far back, all the way to the Kree/Skrull war which was released back in the 70's. But the seeds for the story wasn't planted until New Avenger #1 (2004) But what really jump started it was New Avengers #29 when Elektra was found out to be a Skrull. After that little hints were being dropped all over the place.

If you read New Avengers #40 it explains how they're able to mimic their powers undetected. But without spoiling too much it was pretty much the Illuminati's fault.

I bought the first one, and it explained about how Reed Richards hypnotized 3 skrulls into thinking that they were cows. So the skrulls shape shifted to cows, but then somehow they broke out of the trance and attacked the West Coast or regular Avengers....I cannot remember.

They haven't said yet. For all we know there could be two of the same hero running around. However the Skrulls like the idea of taking the place of an already deceased hero, since they have a habit of coming back to life anyways.

They actually killed a few of the half Skrulls/cows for meat. And when a few humans ate it they obtained Skrull abilities along with and urge to kill all Skrulls. Very strange. Anyways that group may show up in SI.

Anyone else dislike the Ultimate Thanos arc in FF? It was all so boring.
