Best of 2011: Marvel Essentials

OK, so I'm a little late to the party.  I finally got around to checking out this series in 2011.  In short, they're budget reprints of old comics.  The downside is that the paper is cheap newsprint (like how I remember the comics being printed back in the day), & the art is black & white only.  The upside is that you get 500 + pages of comics for about $17. 

Like the comics originally, the quality here varies widely.  But for the better runs of comics, it's a great deal -- the Avenger's "Celestial Madonna" storyline, the X-Men's "Dark Phoenix" or "God Loves Man Kills".
