    My comics buying decisions are based entirely on how entertaining the books are. I have been reading the Miles Morales Spider-Man since it began. I actually stopped buying the Peter Parker Spider-Man way back when he bargained with Mephisto to have everyone forget his secret identity which effectively undid the most important event of the first Civil War. And he was no longer married to Mary Jane, which was a giant step backward. That was a similar mistake that DC is correcting now regarding Superman and Lois.

    I have been reading Thor with Jane Foster wielding the hammer. It is very good. I read the first Black Panther written by Ta-Nahesi Coates and found it disappointing compared with the Don MacGregor version from the 70s.

    I wasn’t reading Iron Man before the new character and I’m not reading it now. I’m not reading the new Captain Marvel or either current Captain America books. Usually I consider these changes as an opportunity to jump off rather than jump on.

      I pretty much share your opinion about Morales and Parker, and Jane Foster — except I loathe the Asgardian font. And I was a bit disappointing in Coates’ Black Panther, but he’s coming from the world of pictureless communication and he deserves some time and editing. I like Iron Man, I’ve liked Captain Marvel pre-Civil War II, and the Captain America storyline is a means to an end. I’ll probably comment on it when it’s over. If it ends.
