    What do you guys think of the Marvel Noir series?

    I am digging X-Men Noir. Cool pulp story with interesting twists on the X-characters.

    Just started Spider-man Noir.

    He looks AWESOME and the first pages of the book blew me away.

    Daredevil is coming soon.

    So far it is X-Men, Spider-Man, and Daredevil is coming. They basically take the stories of each, and set it back in the 1930's. No one has superpowers; Rogue doesn't actually absorb powers, she is a copycat sociopath; Wolverine uses hand-held ninja claws, etc.

    I just started Spider-Man.

    X Men Noir was kind of cool, but for every great looking page there were a few panels where the art got too dark to the point that you couldn't tell what the heck was going on (especially issue 4).

    X-men noir was a decent story, but god it was confusing. I kept getting the main character mixed up with...everyone else.

    it's forgettable, marvel is going to milk it and throw it away

    It did get a little confusing. I'm glad it is just a miniseries, not an ongoing things.

    I was severely disappointed. When I heard Marvel was doing a NOIR universe... I expected Sin City meets the Marvel U.

    Did not deliver... :(
