Avengers versus X-Men help

So you probably already know what I'm going to ask...

I'm mostly following Corwin's X-men map(s) through to current day, but I'm ALSO a fan of pretty much anything Bendis writes (don't throw things)... and have therefore a separate "Mostly-Avengers-but-otherwise-non-X-Men" bind series forming up.

With Avengers v X-men, I don't know which one to put them in?

-do I buy 2x? (ouch) I bought 1 of each of the "I'm with ...." for issue number one, but don't want to keep it up (but might have to)
-do I man-up and decide which one they go in?
-Is it going to end up being a more Avengers story (or X-men)? in which case it's an easier decision

I know it'll come down to personal preference, but I'm looking for some wisdom from those of you that have gone through this in some capacity before.

Thanks so much.

    Oh, I haven't even begun mapping AoA. I'm actually kicking myself because before I found out about binding I started switching to trades and ebay'd all my floppies. I'm working on collecting all the issues again.

    I've already got all of X-Factor vol 1 from 71-125 bound as well as 1-50 of new series. Most of the other 90s ones I'm also binding alone but I will pull key issues to include with my X-Men.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Just like other events I'm going to make AvX it's own bind. So it'll fit between certain Avengers and X-Men binds.

    And Bendis got me into reading the Avengers...so much so that I started up an Avengers Podcast.

    Yes!! Love it! ps - I'm up to *organizing* (read: haven't sent in yet) Vol 65 of the Complete X-Men ./thumbsup
    :-)

    Be sure to post if you have any questions or better suggestions. I'm not above revising the order. I'm actually in the process of adding some stuff to volume 2.

    Cool. Yeah, Once I get it all sorted, I'll ping you some notes.

    This next part may belong more in the other thread & I can move it over if you think it'd help others for the Complete X-Men reading, but mine basically follows yours ~75%, but I skip a lot of the supplementals you included (eg. Rogue 1-4 & Cyclops Icons 1-4, etc.) and only included about half of the X-Men Unlimited's (obvi kept the important ones).

    The biggest change to mine was that I added in ALL of X-Factors (Vol's 1 & 3, lol, skipped Vol.2) and X-Forces (1-115) b/c I had them and wanted to tie them in. I also added about 75% of the Cable, Gen X and X-Man... which needless to say, made the 90's a nightmare to organize ;-)

    One thought off the top of my head for what it's worth, is that I think you got lazy w/ your AoA bind, lol, I'm not sure if you ACTUAL one differs, but you just did issues 1,1,1,1->2,2,2,2, etc. lol, not a criticism, just that you were so meticulous over so much of it, that I was surprised of this, but oh well, that was a messy web in any capacity.

    I'll be organized through current times within a week. Our living room is a disaster zone and my wife will be happy about that, lol.

    Thanks again!

    AvX map has been UPDATED!

    Added
    AvX 9
    New Avengers 29
    X-Men Legacy 271
    Avengers Academy 34

    and a bunch of earlier issues...

    shifted a few issues around in volume 2 to fix continuity errors...unspliced list is going to look quite different soon. May have to iron out some pacing issues soon.

    Due to a few requests I moved the un-spliced list above the spliced list.

    Added:
    Wolverine and the X-Men 15
    X-Men Legacy 272
    Uncanny X-Men 17
    AvX Versus 5 (added to volume 1)
    moved New Avengers 29

    ...going to have to figure out the pacing of the main story with the Avengers Academy and X-Men Legacy side stories...

    Thanks for being so diligent about this.

    For my part I'm most likely going to find sometime when Magik was still powered and post the whole Rogue story as a sort of aside : / I don't really like doing this (I don't understand why they had to randomly insert a separate Rogue story in the midst of the best x-men x-over in years)
    Another thought I'm considering is tacking it onto the very end as a sort of "by the way, this happened in the middle of it" type of thing.

    oh, and thanks for moving up the non-spliced version, that's what I'm more interested in :)

    Lol I hear you... I think Rogue is back in AvX #11.

    Got to see how some of the aftermath stuff plays off. There is certainly something that is supposed to happen before New Avengers 30. Besides that I've got to look over the pacing again.

    Probably going to change where I split the volumes as well. Volume 2 is almost twice the size of volume 1.
