    3: Based off of SWORD's recent tie-in with KiB...this should be very interesting.

    I feel sorry for those who can read and enjoy only X-Men-specific shenanigans...
    All of this and then some

This book was teased in Empyre, so if youíre not for that then I canít help you and youíre entitled to your opinion. For me it makes sense for that reason and because theyíve been trying to get an audience with Emperor Hulkling. They are more or less the U.N. (Or just Krakoan) of earth to the universe

    Iím not countering anyoneís opinion. If you donít enjoy it donít pick it up, thatís up to you. I donít really enjoy Excalibur at all but I but it every month because Iím a fan of Betsy and hope it will get better.

    It seems like itís not a book for you.
    I appreciate the elaboration on why you like where the book is going. I would ask withholding judgement on what I enjoy, it is odd people are so quick to make such an opinion. I had actually jumped on Fantastic Four, GotG, and of course SWORD, right after Empyre ended. I like the books feeling like they exist in the same space. Something like Ewing just throwing a reference to planets being wiped out in his murder mystery arc, alluding to the incoming Knull invasion, was nicely done.

    What is not for me is Knull and pretty much anything Cates is doing. It did not matter how well Ewing might have used the tie ins, it is pretty much like having pineapple on the most amazing pizza ever, you can pick it off and still the pizza is ruined by the taste.

    I may very well jump back in on GotG. I was considering it, now I am waiting to see how big this story actually gets. sometimes I just avoid tie ins because I have a budget. If it was good I can always get it in trade.

    If I do jump back on, and I enjoy it, my real point here is that I still would not toss snide comments around about people who decided to skip out solely due to a tie in or for any reason.

    Actually, YOU responded to ME as to ask if I was just countering because people didn’t like tie-in and if I actually bought the books instead of just reading. So there was judgement from you in your reply to my original post. I stated my reasons why I was for it all in my original post and didn’t say anything negative about people that don’t like the tie-ins. I just stated that it makes sense for what the book is.

    There was nothing snide in saying it sounded like it wasn’t for you. You said you didn’t like 2 and you skipped 3 & 4. Sounds like a fair assessment, not opinion. I don’t read Children of the Atom because it’s not for me. I also won’t be picking up X-Corp because it’s also not for me.

    Sorry, the last sentence was not really directed to you, but that other person who has a grudge can take it however they want.

    There is just a lot of 'well don't read it' and 'oh geez I don't get how anyone can have a differing opinion' from a couple people on this topic. I was hoping that if someone who really enjoyed it pointed out where they were coming from, which you did, it might help other people in a similar situation realize they have the in common and maybe people who are bugged by the crossovers are seeing it from a different perspective.

    So, again, sorry, not all of that was aimed at you. I do still feel though that closing off with "not for you" is going to rub people the wrong way when I did not ask if it was for me or really give any information to indicate what I was looking for.

    Will definitely be getting this. Though that cover makes me a little nervous when it says one of them won't come home. Mutants can be resurrected and I hope Teddy has years of story to come.

    I'm not reading GotG currently but...I just might consider adding it closer to the time when I learn more about the story. SWORD has not let me down so far so that's an absolute definite.

    DC: Green Lantern, Red Hood, Far Sector, The Other History of the DC Universe, Truth and Justice
    Marvel: HiXmen, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Immortal Hulk, Daredevil
    LionForge: Noble, Astonisher
    Image: Killadelphia, Bitter Root, Excellence
    IDW: TMNT: The Last Ronin
    Other: XOGeneSYS, Clock Striker, Is'Nana The Were-Spider, Yohance, EXO Wale Williams

    i haven't really been following it either but i feel comfortable getting it with ewing. he hasn't let me down so far. Even his ultimates was ahead of it's time in my opinon. Guardians just usually isn't on my radar.

    I have no problem picking up GoG during this crossover. I always wanted to pick Ultimates up. Maybe next time Marvel does a sale on comixology and they pop up. I’m always interested in the cosmic side, but never find a book that interests me. SWORD IS that book for me and I hope to see more cosmic players guest every so often.

    I have not been following GoTG either but I think this crossover is worth it to keep with the story Ewing is writting and this crossover makes sense with the story being told on S.W.O.R.D this was a book promised to have a lot of interaction with the wider Marvel Universe and I think itīs doing exactly that, I didnīt like S.W.O.R.D getting into the Gala issue because I didnīt really see a need for it, just a reference would have been enough but I think Ewing will make it worth it.

    I just like the potential present on this book for the X-characters to interact with the main MU without it becoming a versus situation while it allows to address storylines that have not been touched yet like Brand appareance at the end of EMPYRE.

    I get it can be annoying to have to read other books to read the main story, so far we have got just like 2 and a half issues with just SWORD story so the title definitely can do with more issues dedicated to itīs own storyline, without being in a crossover but I donīt think it has been neccesary to adquire every other book of the crossovers to understand the story being told.
