Ever wondered what Clint Barton does when he’s not busy being an Avenger?
If you don’t, you should read it anyway because this series is awesome.
for more Hawkeye, you can find my old Hawkeye masterpost here
what are the best black widow comics to start out on?? i love black widow but idk where to start there seem to be so many ???????
(sorry i didn’t reply sooner, forgive me please)
I agree there are a ton of books, you could start out with nathan edmonson’s current run, which has proven to be new reader friendly if you ask me, and if that left you wanting more:
- I’d recommend Black Widow: Volume 1 Itsy bitsy spider by Devin Grayson, which also features the second Black Widow Yelena Belova, and after that i’d recommend reading Breakdown.
- After that definitely check out Marjorie Liu’s run Name of the Rose, followed by Kiss or Kill by Duane Swierczynski. Widowmaker continues the storyline and Natasha teams up with Hawkeye and Mockingbird, which is awesome.
- After that i’d go for Homecoming and Things They Say About Her.
(As for team books check out Avengers, and Secret Avengers Volume 1, ps: Fuckyeahblackwidow has a nice list with some more books you could read, but the books listed above are what i personally recommend! i hope this helped :)

The Young Avengers need more LOVE!
I just remembered how cute Jean-Paul and Kyle are in the issue of their wedding i want to know more about them
anyone can recommend good issues or arcs with them? or the Alpha Flight?
Kyle hasn’t been in all that many books, alas, but here’s where you can find him:
Uncanny X-Men Sisterhood TPB - First appearance.
Alpha Flight (2011) - Pretty much playing the damsel-in-distress role the whole time, unfortunately.
Astonishing X-Men: Weaponized - A few cute moments in the main storyline, plus a reprint of the annual, which focuses heavily on Northstar and Kyle.
Astonishing X-Men: Unmasked - Wraps up Northstar and Kyle’s DOMA storyline.
Hope this helps!
she’s getting ready to go on a date, can you guess who with? i’ll give you a hint: it starts with ‘p’ ends in ‘atsy walker’. also if you’re wondering who’s on the phone it’s my inability to draw collarbones calling bring bring please pick up.
Could you please do a guide on books where Emma Frost is written well, and good stories featuring her? (also as a bonus stories with Emma and Namor interacting because i saw your tag for them but i don't know what to read for that...) thanks!
ok!!! well I’m not super up to speed on x-men comics in general, but I’ll try. these are in a vaguely chronological order but not necessarily.
- uncanny x-men: the dark phoenix saga (her introduction)
- uncanny x-men vol 1 (sporadic appearances as a villain in the beginning. issues #281-314 deal with her loss of the hellions, she’s in a coma for a while, then she joins generation x after 314. vol 1 is CRAZY LONG and goes up until like 2010? I think?? emma appears pretty frequently throughout it and is a main character by the time the series gets into the 400s.)
- new mutants vol 1
- firestar (emma kills a horse!!! not on comixology)
- classic x-men (#34-35 are the important issues I think)
- new warriors vol 1 (not on comixology either???)
- generation x (comixology only has 1-34 but it goes up to #75. this is the first series where emma is a teacher for the main team, I believe.)
- grant morrison’s new x-men
- emma frost (pls ignore the SKEEVY AS FUCK greg horn covers because this is actually an ok comic that is the first retcon of emma’s early years and backstory.)
- astonishing x-men vol 3 (uuugh ok this is REALLY not my favorite, and as a whole I was unimpressed with this comic in general and whedon’s writing of emma in particular. there’s a few good moments with her? but like. eh. whatever. but she does feature heavily in it and idk it’s a pretty big chunk of her history and relationship with scott so. I’ll include it?)
- x-men vol 3
- house of m (emma doesn’t play a…huge role in the events of house of m but she shows up a few times)
- new avengers #8
- civil war #3 (also civil war: x-men)
- secret invasion: dark reign
- dark reign: the cabal (a collection of various minis, the second one being the emma frost story called how I survived apocalyptic fire. one of my favorite emma stories EVER but weirdly it’s written by fraction???????)
- dark x-men: the confession
- x-men origins: emma frost (slightly different version of her origin story, kind of an um. bizarre? disturbing?? unnecessary retcon of her relationship with shaw)
- uncanny x-men vol 2
- avengers vs. x-men (uuugh. I hated avx as an event, but phoenix emma??? but then skeevy things with emma and scott and idk avx is a BIG OL MESS but again. phoenix force emma. and there’s some emma/namor I guess?? check out avx: vs #4 for emma vs. thor and references to bdsm)
that’s everything that I’ve read. she is currently appearing in uncanny x-men and has a few appearances in other current x titles but I’m not reading any of them.
as for namor and emma:
- uncanny x-men annual #2 (the main emma/namor issue as far as I’m aware)
- dark x-men
- brief appearance in namor: the first mutant #2, 6, 7 and 8
and that’s all I have. I’d ask resident emma/namor expert kris anka if he has any more recs for these two, he’s way more qualified to rec things than I am
