I have been hunting new comics lately. I started where I used to read comics: with the X-Men. I’ve read the new version of X-Men, All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, Uncanny X-Force and the Uncanny Avengers… and a bit further into the Avengers with the New Avengers.
The X-Men comics fill me with nostalgia, make me feel like I’m entering back into something from my youth. But the plots I’ve been reading in the Avengers titles have been better. In Uncanny Avengers, there’s a great combination of X-Men and Avengers villains going on, old ones and new ones, all mashing up dangerously. And there’s a lot hanging out there unknown. In New Avengers, the Marvel Illuminati are back, and fighting off the end of the universe… well, all universes. Ever.
So, Holly recently posted asking what comics she should read, and she got some great recommendations. One that caught my eye was The Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman. I saw the name and went, wait a minute, I’m reading something by Jonathan Hickman. The New Avengers. So I looked: what else is he up to?
And I found the most recent volume of the Avengers. So I’ve given it a read, and I’ve found a new favorite. So let’s give it a look!

As I’ve mentioned in a few posts recently, I have been working on finding new comics to read. In part, because my summer has been so busy that comics are one of my main forms of entertainment. I love my Marvel iPad app, love new comics on Wednesday, and am loving what I have been reading working with our LitFlix so far.
I lost a few of the comics I got back into comics with – Uncanny X-Force, and X-Treme X-Men. It was the end of X-Treme X-Men that started my hunt for new comics, but today, let’s look at what I found by trying out the new Uncanny X-Force.
