This is the second installment of the Midtown Comics Marvel Guide! If you haven’t checked out the first part, click here!
These books are ones you can read and enjoy without having to read other titles, so if you don’t feel inclined to invest yourself heavily into the mainline Marvel continuity, you can still check out these fantastic reads!
In my 14 years of reading and collecting comics, as well as work in a comic book store, one of the most common complaints I’ve heard (and sometimes delivered myself) is lateness in comics. Whether it’s an intentional pushing back of the title, a late page, a late script or a last second disaster, comic book fans deal with lateness all of the time, yet still the clarion call is delivered “OFF WITH (Enter Creator’s Name)’S HEAD!” “THEY SHOULDN’T DO COMICS!” “THEY SHOULD WRITE/DRAW FASTER!” This debate could rage on for days, weeks even. What I’d like to do, is just draw your attention to some books that have been late, have had huge names work on them, and decide for yourself if the wait was worth it.
