Podcast Episode 46: Marvel NOW!.1

The Marvel NOW! initiative began about six months ago, and we discuss the titles that started within the first three months, including:

  • Uncanny Avengers
  • Red She Hulk
  • All-New X-Men
  • Thor: God of Thunder
  • FF
  • Fantastic Four
  • Indestructible Hulk
  • Captain America
  • Avengers
  • Hawkeye (Yes, this started before Marvel NOW!, but we also wanted to discuss all Marvel titles that we’re reading now.)

What did we like? What could have been better? Just how successful was this initiative for a couple of old comics readers who weren’t reading a lot of Marvel comics before? You’ll have to listen to find out! Next episode we’ll finish up with the rest of the Marvel NOW! titles.
