So it's no secret that the Book Club has kind of declined it participation recently. While I think it's a lovely idea (and has gotten me to read much more), I don't want to continue it if no one is really interested.

Don't worry, I still want to continue it at least for the premiere of Luke Cage. Ideally, I'd like to go with Daredevil #178 (The Paper Chase) and Power Man & Iron Fist # 77 (What's Black and White and Red All Over?), but the latter is probably impossible for anyone to get legitimately online (I have it through Essential Power Man and Iron Fist Vol. 2, but that's hardly ideal). The other plan is Daredevil: Cage Match.

If people really want me to, I'm happy to continue. I haven't run out of ideas yet. Alternatively, if someone else wants to take over, I'm happy to give them the opportunity. But, even if we give it a rest for now, I'm happy to bring it back when something relevant is happening either in comics today or the MCU.

So please chime in with two things. Is it worth continuing the Book Club right now? And would people prefer the more accessible Cage Match or the Paper Chase and Luke Cage follow-up instead?

I personally have been enjoying Book Club, but it's up to you if you want to continue it. It feels like we have hit on most of the major stories.

As for Luke Cage, I don't think Cage Match is a significant work at all, so I would go with Paper Chase.

One last thing: We should probably return to Bendis and cover "Out." I think Bendis has grown to be a somewhat controversial figure on this site, or at least polarizing. Some people seem to revere him, while others (like myself) find him overrated.

But it's up to you.

I'm still for it. I plan on continuing to contribute when work and Real Life allow for it but it's still good seeing all the different opinions on stories and minis that may not be as well known as others.

I would also second the choice for Paper Chase.

OK. I'm sold. I'm happy to continue. I'd also love to do Out. I always hesitate to do Bendis because it lasts for a long time so it's hard to back out if no one is watching (it'll run for about six issues to go through Dancing Between the Raindrops). But I'm happy to do it.

I can do it as early as October 16. Alternatively, I really wanted to do the creation of Blackheart (DD 270) at some point and Halloween-ish seemed appropriate. I was wondering if people were interested in the opening half of what's usually called the Lone Stranger arc - essentially Cremains (#267) to Blackheart (#270). As an added bonus, the weird trippy one can come out just in time for Doctor Strange. It's somewhat disjointed overall, but it definitely stands out as distinct from the issues that follow and works as a fairly self-contained arc.

So let me know if you want to do the Out arc on October 16 or the Lone Stranger arc on October 16 (with Out to start November 13).

I was about to post to ask. I'm going to do a Christmas story next week. I was thinking Daredevil #253 (Merry Christmas, Kingpin). I don't recall it being anything other than fluffy filler, but it's a story on Marvel Unlimited and I thought it was good for Christmas. I'm assuming people wouldn't want to do something as new as Daredevil Vol. 3 #8 from Mark Waid's run (the one with the kids from the school of blind students).

But, yes, I wasn't sure what to do after that. My plan was to continue with Bendis (I do like the next story), but a change of pace is a good idea.

I have to admit, I kinda want to cover Lowlife, just because I think its more cohesive then Out and it would fun to have an arc that focused on a B-list villain, even though it is not the best take on the character. Bendis does treat Owl better then other B-list DD villains though.

But I am open to other ideas.

Well, next would be Trial of the Century, then Lowlife.

I'm happy to go all the way to Hardcore if people are interested. Or we can take a break with some other story. At some point, I'd like to do Fall From Grace (ugh), the Elektra Saga, and Elektra's resurrection, but those are the only real stories I can think of that are easily accessible and fun to cover.

Once again, I'm happy to pick stories not on Marvel Unlimited if I give people enough notice. For example, people have mentioned Elektra: Assassin.

Also, if anyone can think of any Iron Fist tie-ins (or stories that would thematically work well with Iron Fist), let me know.

I'm fine with that before continuing on with Bendis, or even doing Karl Kessel's Mr. Hyde story as well.

I'll continue Bendis for now. It's only a three-story plot, so we can go to something else if we want fairly soon.
