I just picked up a subscription to Marvel Unlimited. It's pretty cool, though difficult to read things in multiple series in the order they came out, which is annoying when you get to the big crossover events. I'm trying to get to the Civil War event in every comic I care about at the same time.
But anywho, I'm picking up most of the comics where I left off around 2005 and boy did I figure out what made me lose interest in X-Men. Chris Claremont still writes comics today exactly the same way he did in the 70s. Blech. Luckily it looks like I don't have too far to go before Brubaker takes over.
It also looks like there's a ton of mini-series that have happened since I stopped reading, both X-Men and otherwise. Any suggestions as to good ones since 2005? Read X-Men Deadly Genesis already because I remembered it being a big deal right as I was losing interest in spending that much money on comics.
