I like the new X-men too. They should have more avengers x-men team ups when they aren't against each other

I am currently waiting to receive Defenders 18 and 19...After which I will read issues 17,18 and 19 which is the 1st Wrecking Crew story.

Stopped buying new issues about a year ago to collect nothing but back issues. Love reading the older books.

I 100% agree with the back issues. I just love back issues. Although some of the older ones like gold and silver age, they are worth the money. What kind of back issues do you have

I agree. I don't know what it is about older comics but they are more enjoyable to read then new comics although i'll read both.

While I do enjoy reading current issues I do really enjoy my back issues more.The cack issues I'm reading at the moment are
Conan The Barbarian (Marvel).I started with my earliest issue which is 12 and am up to issue 86.Every issue has been great.Highly recommend.

Darkchylde.I have to say I am rather suprised by this title.I have owned these issues for years now but never read them till the other day.I didnt expect to like the story but find it entertaining.

Deathlok (Marvel M Tech vol. Four issues into this rather short run and I'm hooked.Too bad it didnt last past issue 10 or 11.The artwork compliments the dark, gritty story.

Wow that's a great run of Conan's. I'm currently reading a Batman mini series of Black Mask from back in the 90s.

I started collecting in the mid 80's so I have large runs on certain Marvel titles from then on. I have a large Batman collection as that was the only DC book I grew up collecting. For the last year I've been filling in issues from the 60's and 70's that I do not currently have.

I would say some early X-Men and FF are among my most valuable books.

Hi Chris, your Defenders are on the way. What's funny is when I was double checking those I wound up leafing through one of those Wrecking Crew issues, don't worry I was careful, lol.

One of my all time favorite stories was the first Byrne run in FF, the whole Galactus vs Sphinx storyline while the FF are fighting the effects of the Skrull aging ray. What's funny is when Byrne came back to the FF a year later with issue 232 his style had changed quite a bit, not sure what was up with that.

I can't help you much on Flash, but I do know that the Mark Waid run in the 90s was pretty cool.

As for Green Lantern, it matters on what era you really want to get into:

If it's the Golden Age, then there's DC Archives, unless you've got a lot of dough to spend because Golden Age Green Lantern are some of the priciest issues out there. All-American Comics #16 is the first appearance of the original Green Lantern (Alan Scott), and then he gets his own self-titled comic (Green Lantern (vol. 1)) starting with #1, naturally.

If it's the Silver Age, then I'd suggest starting from the beginning: Showcase #22 (there are plenty of reprints if price is a problem) then of course Green Lantern #1 (vol. 2) and continuing from there. There are DC Archives of these, as well.

For Post-Crisis Green Lantern, then you need to start with Green Lantern (vol. 2) #193-#200 and Green Lantern Corps #201. These are essential for the changes that happen from the Crisis, and then the post-crisis set-up for the GL Corps. Then you need to immeadiatly read Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn (6-issue mini-series) which is Hal Jordan's Post-Crisis origin. Emerald Dawn II (also a 6-issue mini-series) is a nice add-on to it if you enjoy Emerald Dawn I, but not necessary. It's the Post-Crisis origin of Sinestro and Hal's first meeting with him.

If you're into Kyle Rayner, then Green Lantern (vol. 3) #46, #48-51, and #54 are absolutely essential issues. It shows the downfall of Hal Jordan as he's overtaken by Parallax then destroys the Green Lantern Corps and Guardians of the Universe. Followed by the origin of Kyle Rayner, and in issue #54 is the reason he REALLY decides to get responsible and become a hero.

And finally, if you want to just follow the modern Geoff Johns take on Green Lantern, then I'd start with Green Lantern: Rebirth #1-6 which re-introduces Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner as active Green Lanterns and returns Sinestro to the DC Universe as a major villain. After, just follow the superb Green Lantern (vol. 4) series which continues straight into the currently running Green Lantern (vol. 5) which was changed VERY little story and continuity-wise by the New 52 changes. The Secret Origin storyarc in Green Lantern (vol. 4) is supposedly the modern origin of Hal Jordan, but in reality it's more like the set-up to the Red Lanterns' introduction into the Green Lantern mythos.

I'm reading "Death in the Family" story arc (#44-47) of Peter Parker Spider-Man.

I'm a big fan of Humberto Ramos' art.
