Within the last month at /r/MUBookClub I've read some pretty cool books.
1) Star-Lord (2016) "Grounded" - It wasn't game-changing by any means but it had some great comedy moments, particularly at the end. It's just fun for fun's sake. Almost in the same ballpark as Superior Foes of Spider-Man. A solid 4 *'s.
2) Carnage (2015) vol 1. "The One That Got Away" - really cool concept for the first few issues of it, then it sort of jumps the shark a little. But the inspiration to commonly known horror movies are pretty up-front-and-center and really feels like an ode to the genre. Another 4 *'s.
3) New X-Men (2001) #114-117 "E Is For Extinction" - Grant Morrison's starting point on the run. I feel like it probably gets a lot better, or is remembered so fondly for the dramatic upswing in quality from the issues prior. As a jumping-on point for me though it just felt okay. There were two scenes that really struck me - one very sad, one very comical and badass, but the rest didn't do much for me. 3 *'s.
4) Taskmaster (2010) by Fred Van Lente - strong recommend. It's a short mini-series detailing the character's backstory and more about him in the present, and like all good villain stories, it's full of sympathy-evoking tragedy. 5 *'s.
5) Truth: Red, White, and Black (2003) - I've seen articles call this a WTF awful mini-series, and I've seen others praise it. I'm glad I checked it out, because I would have easily dismissed it, but it was pretty good. It had it's share of flaws but it had some resoundingly huge balls being so blunt educating about treatment of blacks throughout American history. I don't know how to star-rating something that I think is vitally important to my development but still has some glaringly annoying detractions, so I'll just say 3 *'s, but an important 3 *'s.
