Ok, I managed to get copies of the whole universe on the 'bay.

I read all the pre-unity and unity issues in the chronological order suggested by the great poster who put up the list. After Unity I am starting to just read them by title (switching from title to title got a little disorienting).

I was going to just do it alphabetically but this was a bad idea. I did A&A first. As many have pointed out, the second half of the A&A run is really dreadful, so by the time I choked down issues 13-26 of A&A I was thinking. "Oh man, what have I done buying all these comic books!"

So I randomly hopped to a title that seemed completely different and started reading the Ninjak run. Issues 0, 00, and 1 are really good actually! I'll keep you posted.

By the way, I have to say this is a pretty cool site. I've lurked for a month or two while I was accumulating the books and you guys have got me really excited to read every single book.

Hola compadre.....

You got a good time ahead of you. I really liked Ninjak, I thought it stayed good all the way to the end. I was actually bummed when VH1 Ninjak was done, I really liked where it was going.

Read Shadowman next, ..... it's good to the last drop.

BTW, if the end of the A&A series disappointed you, then don't expect the other preunity titles to end any better. By the end, they all ran out of gas. Shadowman probably had the strongest finish of the preunity titles with Magnus and XO having the weakest.

Ninjak had a great origin and the art on 1-3 was fantastic (and a good story too). Valiant's James Bond.

Yeah, I'm up to about 11 and the 00-3 books have been the best so far. I like the Quesada-Palmiotti art too. :)

I agree about XO & Magnus having the weakest endings for the Pre-Unity books, but I'd put Bloodshot up against Shadowman and call it a dead heat, far as a strong finish. I think those two books suffered less in part because they managed to maintain essentially the same creative teams for longer periods of time. Magnus & Rai got muddled in the middle of the Malev war while XO got derailed in the aftermath of Wolfbridge. I think XO had so much potential. It's a darn shame Gonzalez lost the writing chores, because he had such a handle on where things were going. Only Layton could do a better job, imo. Although, having said that, Giffen wrote one of my alltime fave scenes, when::SPOILERS::Aric slit a certain Darque throat. :twisted:
