John (Taloni) Taloni (johntaloni) | 3861 comments I looked into Marvel Unlimited a few times. They don't have full runs of comics and they leave off anything important to their printing business. It's a nice idea but not worth the money.

Rob Secundus (quintessential_defenestration) | 1035 comments Xstatix is *incredible*. It starts I think at x-force 116? And then when the x-force series ends x-statix #1 starts. It's an early 2000s series about a superhero reality shows deconstruction of the genre but *super* fun.

I've been reading new x-men by grant Morrison-- decent but confusing as it sits at a very specific point in continuity, and Hickman's avengers/new avengers ongoing saga. If you're familiar with Hickman it's very standard stuff. Crazy massive scifi epics with gigantic casts.

Rob Secundus (quintessential_defenestration) | 1035 comments That complaint may have been accurate at its inception but it's just objectively untrue at this point. There are a good number of classic complete runs, a ton of famous events, and almost all of the modern stuff being published (though at a six month lag).

Fair enough! I will give it another look. I last checked about two years ago, and had looked at it several times before that. If it has changed, great.
