Hey guys, I have a request for the comic pushers.
Despite the massive delays, I've really enjoyed this recent Secret Wars event. However, I haven't had much exposure to most Marvel events. I've read the majority of all of DC's big events over the years but missed most of Marvel's until recently. The majority of Marvel's events seem to have mixed reviews. Which makes it hard to tell which are worth reading or are important to understanding more of the Marvel Universe.
Could you guys please suggest some other Marvel events that are worth checking out?
I'd go for the three big company wide ones, Civil War, Secret Invasion and Dark Reign for a start. Those were pretty good. Skip Fear Itself, it wasn't that good. Same goes for Original Sin and AvX if you ask me. There are a few minor events, events that only span a couple of books instead of all of them, that you can check out. Spider-verse was already mentioned and it's pretty fun. The X-men had a couple of events following eachother like Manifest Destiny, Schism, etc. (there are more but I can't think of them right now). If you're an x-fan, I'd check those out. Stay away from whatever Shadowland and Chaos War were.
I've recommended this series before, but Annihilation is fantastic. It's a Marvel Cosmic event involving Nova, Silver Surfer, Super Skrull, Ronan the Accuser, Drax the Destroyer, Thanos, and many many more. The roots of it were born in a two issue mini called Drax Earthfall, then moves into the Annihilation Prologue. Then the story breaks into four minis: Nova, Ronan the Accuser, Super Skrull, and Silver Surfer. Finally, it finishes with the Annihilation 6 issue mini. Just large, bombastic fun.
