How are variants even distributed? I don't think I've ever even seen one much less had the opportunity to snag one (unless I eBay it).

How much is everyone reading right now? I think im at somewhere around 16 or so comics, and maybe its just because i just started like a year and a half ago, but i tend to get overwhelmed feeling and im always like 1 or 2 months behind. Am i just trying to read too much or does everyone read a large amount every month?

Think it's just luck unless your buds with a store owner.

New book....takes place after A New Hope. That's why I'm jumping on.

I read a lot of them. I can be tough sometimes to remember what happened in the last issue. I can take a few pages before it comes back to me.

Me too pretty much... Just finished Avengers Omnibus 1...
taking a comic book break to read Neil Young's autobiography
then back to Evolutionary Wars cross over.

I really wish i could get into keeping up with the X-force comics, and Uncanny Avengers, and The All New X-men, and Uncanny X-men when it starts back up... but that month wait just kills me... so i just wait till the hard cover collections come out

I just got back into collecting, and I'm buying all the Marvel re-launches to see what's worth following. Right now I'm really liking The Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, All-New X-Men, Captain America, Thor God of Thunder, and Indestructible Hulk.

I love Spider-Man but the loss of the flagship title is really bugging me. Amazing Spider-Man was my bread and butter as a kid; I don't care if Doctor Octopus is Spider-Man, cause that shit will get sorted out. But I want the title back.

I didn't pick that one when it started a couple of months ago. Im mostly reading DC stuff, a bunch of batmam titles, flash, aquaman, green lantern and green arrow, swampthing, justice league and superman. Then the marvel stuff is, incredible hulk(the one where hulk and banner have been separated) avengers assemble, uncanny avengers, xtreme men, and a few more i can't think of right now. Im hoping i can find that starwars when i get a chance to get to the shop

I bought the first volume of The Invisibles TPB a year or so ago, but I never made it past the second issue in the volume. Someone in this thread encourage me to finish the story, please.

That's cool. I've been mostly a DC guy myself for a while but I've been taking advantage of the Marvel Now thing to get back into Marvel especially the X-men. Outside of Uncanny X-Force I haven't been a regular X-men reader since like 1990. The Bat books and the Green Lantern ones have been great. I'm kinda losing interest in the others you mentioned though for the moment I'm sticking with them. Except Green Arrow. Never gave that one a chance.

I like arrow, but haven't loved this current story line, i just keep hoping it will get enjoyable. i wanted to read a few of the marvel now books, but didn't know if i could keep up with many more books. I did pick up iron man which i don't know about yet, and fantastic 4 which i didn't like.
