I have been reading a lot of MCU fanfic and was reading some that based Hawkeye off the comicbook and I got interested in that version of Clint Barton and I ended up getting the first trade from the library. Which had a little thing about the Young Avengers, and now I want to read that...
I figure as long as I'm just getting trades from the library I'm ok and I want fall back into the OH MY GOD I HAVE TO BUY EVERYTHING thing that happened the last few times I tried to buy comicbooks.
askye, the Matt Fraction run on Hawkeye? SO GOOD. And I love Kate Bishop so much. I can’t wait until the Hawkeye show on Disney+.
Yep it is the Fraction run. I kept seeing that tag and I liked the Clint characterizations better so I finally gave the comics a shot. Also the references to the tracksuit Draculas and I wanted to check that out. The stories I read weren't overusing the word bro, bro...
Kate is awesome. Reading this definitely makes me more excited about the upcoming series.
Oh yeah. Kate Bishop is blessed to have been written well by almost everyone who's had a book starring her. (The Kelly Thompson series was a bit too wacky sitcom-ish for me, but it didn't seem badly written.)
When these started showing up on Tumblr, I thought it just fan art, but no, it’s an officially licensed by DC thing.
The Young Avengers I have on hold is finally ready to pick up. I got excited when I read that at work and was like "i'll get it on my way home". Except the library closed before I got off so now I have to wait until tomorrow.
I also looked through the trade paperbacks they had and I thought I picked up the start of the Spider-Gwen ones but I didn't so I have to take that back and find the right one. I also requested The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.
I'd like to read some Spiderman but I have no idea where to start there.
I don't know where a good place to start with classic Spider-Man would be, but Bendis' run on Ultimate Spider-Man is really solid, at least the first few years. (I eventually got burned out on them when it started getting side-tracked by big crossover events and such.) My only real complaint about them is I don't care for their take on the Green Goblin.
