So I just got back into the States, after spending 13 months away. And I have no idea where to even start with getting caught up on all the stories I missed. I'm going to jump straight into buying my favorite ongoings from before with this month issues, but what are the best back issues from 2007? I've heard about the big stories - World War Hulk, Sinestro Corps, what they did to cap, etc - but I'm sure there are a lot that slipped through the cracks.
Anybody know of a good 2007 review feature? Just to give you an idea of the time frame when I left, Civil War was just wrapping up, and I was really looking forward to the premier of Mighty Avengers and the new Thunderbolts. On the DC side of the house, I remember being a few issues into All-Star Superman and loving it, and Action Comics had a storyline coming up with Richard Donner that I was excited about. I can't even remember what I was reading from DH and Image or any of the indies when I left. So... what did I miss in the past year that I have to read?
Oh, and while I'm bugging you - are any of the new animated films as good as Timm-verse DC? I saw Doomsday and New Frontier and Suncoast but held off on buying them. What about the Marvel animated - Dr. Strange looks fun. Anything else I missed?
