I spend a lot of time talking about the wonders and tribulations of Marvel Unlimited, but a reader question reminded me this week that Marvel’s app game is potentially confusing. On one hand you have the official Marvel Comics app, and on the other you have Marvel Unlimited. What’s the difference between the two? How do they interact? And how could these two apps synchronize in the future to completely revolutionaize and monopolize the digital comics landscape?

Question of the Week
Normally I like to dive in depth into one question a week, but you guys have been bringing the heat to the point that it’s time for a “Questions of the Week” super post. If you’ve asked a question recently, there’s a pretty good chance it’s in here. And if not, it probably means you’re one of the legions of men and women who keep asking for my phone number. I told you all, this meat is off the market! (because it’s rotten…?) [Read more…] about Questions of the Week: Super Deluxe Mega Version of Answering Reader Emails!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about a proper reading order for the period in Marvel history between Civil War and Secret Invasion. It’s almost like you’re saying there’s a gap between January 2007 (when Civil War ends) and June 2008 (when Secret Invasion begins). Sometimes I just don’t understand you guys and gals.
Although World War Hulk falls in between the events, it’s a lot more self-contained of an event with fewer universe-wide implications. This entire time period can probably be best described as “The Initiative,” the period following Civil War with Iron Man’s Superhuman Registration Act in full effect.
So to paraphrase a Twitter question: [Read more…] about Question of the Week: What Do I Read Between Civil War & Secret Invasion?
Good question this week that I haven’t done a great job explaining. I’ve been on the grind lately working up some Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man and X-Men reading orders in connection with the recent films. As a result, Hags asks:
Can you explain (or point me in the direction where you have already explained) How your specific reading orders (i.e. x-men or spider-man) fit in with your complete Marvel reading guide? Are these a part of the guide, just pulled out and separated for fans of the individual series that might not want to read all of the other titles?
Everywhere I go this week, I hear the same thing: Does Comic Book Herald have a Facebook page? Do you think Dave knows it’s May 20, 2014 and running a borderline popular website with no Facebook page is absurd? How old is he actually? The oldest? Do you think he writes these blog posts on stone tablets like George R.R. Martin, but with way less skill? Does he even know it’s Christmas?
Lotta questions, and a lot of good ones in there that I may need some more time to answer. But one I can address right here and now: Comic Book Herald now HAS A FACEBOOK PAGE. If you’re the sort who spends time on Facebook (see also: living and breathing in modern times and not some anachronistic super soldier), a like would be much obliged. In addition to the latest and greatest on Comic Book Herald, I’ll be sharing quite a bit of comic book reading order thoughts and news as they come to me. I’m also pretty quick to answer questions on these social networks (just ask my Twitter), so there’s that. Like me! Please!
