    Default Help me trim down my pull list

    Hey Everyone,

    Once Batman Inc and Captain Marvel come out, my pull list will consist of 24 books plus a few minis. I have been dropping/adding as I have gone along (mostly DC, but I am 100 percent a marvel/X-men fanboy)

    In a perfect world, I would like to get that list down to as close to 20 as possible for a few reasons...what would you cut and why?



    Marvel

    Uncanny X-Men
    X-Men
    Wolverine and the X-Men
    X-Men Legacy
    Uncanny X-Force
    Avengers
    Secret Avengers
    New Avengers
    Mighty Thor
    Journey Into Mystery
    Amazing Spider-Man
    Avenging Spider-Man
    Incredible Hulk
    Hulk
    Fantastic Four
    Wolverine
    Captain Marvel
    DC
    Wonder Woman
    Batman
    Batman and Robin
    Batman Incorporated
    Green Lantern
    Green Lantern Corps
    Image
    Saga
    What do you guys think? And thanks in advance for the replies!

    I deleted what I would get rid of him. Not ideal for you, I'm sure. Just my opinion.

    Pick up more Image for the extra books I got rid of.
    Comics enjoyed by my Old Lady: Chew, IKG, Saga, JTHM, Ex Machina, Gil Kane's Green Lantern, Wormwood, NYX, Jurgen and JMS's Thor, along with a few others.

    Only buy the comics you really look forward to reading each month. Don't buy the comics you're only buying out of habit.

    Cut out all the DC books. Gives you one less comic universe to follow and you like Marvel better anyway.

    Dead in a comic does not mean dead. No matter what THEY say.

    Drop both Lanterns. Pick up Aquaman. Drop Incredible Hulk and maybe The Mighty Thor too. I have my doubts about Captain Marvel (Ms. turned Cap is it?) Might have to drop that too. Pick up FF as long as Hickman does it. Avengers Acadamy great book too.

    Drop all DC and Marvel and get more Image, Adventure Time, Dynamite's The Shadow/Spider and IDW's Popeye; after you get on that, get Pekar's Cleveland.

    Trim-off:

    Incredible Hulk. Reason: One of the worst comics on the stands despite carrying a superstar writer.

    Hulk. Reason: I mean, really?!?

    Wolverine. Reason: The book is about to become really inconsistent. Unless, ya wanna hang on through Jeph Loeb's lupine stuff.

    Saga. Reason: It's not as good as your hipster friends make it out to be. Your welcome.

    Marvel, STOP writing for the Trade so I can go back to collecting Monthlies again. Thanks.

    For what it's worth, here you go. For the most part, the approach I used was to get rid of any overlaps as much a possible.


    Marvel
    Wolverine and the X-Men
    Uncanny X-Force
    Avengers
    Secret Avengers
    The Mighty Thor
    Amazing Spider-Man
    Incredible Hulk
    Fantastic Four
    Captain Marvel

    DC
    Wonder Woman
    Batman
    Batman Incorporated
    Green Lantern

    Thanks for the replies, all

    The titles I am on the fence over, and are considering dropping are:
    Incredible Hulk (only thing keeping me from not dropping it is I love hulk smash, even though there hasnt been any)
    GLC
    Avenging Spider Man
    X-Men
    X-Men Legacy
    Batman Inc (I dropped Action because I didnt like it at all, and was shocked because Morrison was writing it)
    Journey Into Mystery
    Saga - was originally planning on waiting for trade but have picked up the first 2 issues because of all the buzz surrounding it and its brian k vaughn and i loved y the last man

    good point about batman inc...i didnt read the first volume, do you think I will be lost, since this is a continuation?

    Personally i like new avengers, almost more than avengers, so thats staying

    Also, valid point on avenging

    true about hulk, im a huge hulk fan, but the book isnt doing it for me, but im hanging on for now..im a bigger fan of red than green hulk right now, i think parker is killing it on red
