@rpgesus: first off, I absolutely adored the visuals. I remember the story being really intriguing "back in the day" (I read those some years ago so I'm kinda rusty), but I too was quite confused if I remember correctly. I very much enjoyed it nevertheless. The only reason I didn't finish this series was that the third volume was out of print or just sold out at the time. I also heard that the story keeps on getting better. I'm actually considering to buy the omnibus.
God I can't wait to read Cable & Deadpool, but Agent X is tempting me too. Well, I gotta finish the 1997 series first. 57 issues left.
@thedandyman: he is! It's really fun reading the classics. I already read some of Uncanny X-Force and also the first volume of Marvel NOW! Deadpool (which I found fun, too, but the classics are more enjoyable as yet).
I'm actually not entirely new to the comic book medium. I read a lot of Batman comics when I was a child and started reading US comics (I'm from Germany) when DC's New 52 hit the shelves. But I kinda "retired" after a short time and just recently got into comics again after acquiring a tablet. I wish I could afford collecting physical books primarily, but unfortunately I can't.
Be that as it may, I highly recommend reading the Deadpool Classic trades. I could pass you the reading order I found if you want to. :)
Comicbookresources has all the dates and all that if that's what you need.
It does have the dates. Problem is: I'll have to search for every single issue individually instead of having an overview or a summary of that particular series' issues and their release dates.
Still, I don't find any information about how many issues are planned for a series. Well, I only checked for Planet Hulk; I'll just assume there's also no data for the others I'm looking for.
If nothing like that exists I'll have to settle with CBR and the likes. But wouldn't it be fantastic to have a page like ComicBookDB with exact publish dates for past, current and future releases + data on how long the "run" of ongoings will be?
I've been using comicbookresources.com's previews section to get a grasp of what's out but they only have DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and IDW titles on there as far as I can tell. Which isn't a huge deal to me (and I imagine most people) but there are some good books being released by other publishers.
So I take it something like what I was looking for doesn't exist? That's a pity. Most of the release dates in my pull list (relating to Secret Wars + tie-ins) are from howtolovecomics.com - I still haven't found another place for that. Where do these guys get their information from? I can't even seem to find out how many issues of Planet Hulk (2015) will be published. Annoying...
