Title: Weekly Reader - March 22, 2017
Post by: Perry on March 22, 2017, 02:58:25 AM
I'm up before Jeff this morning, though I often am ... almost 100% of the time I would think, as my placement on the U.S map causes the sun to hit me first  ;), so I thought I would go ahead and start the new week off.

I almost made it through my huge DC backlog last week, not forcing myself to read, but maybe prioritizing my time to lean more towards comics  ;D so hopefully I will gain more ground this week.
Also, even though it is coming out this week, I am not reading Flash until the crossover with Bats.

What I would like to get through (No true order, save WW #18) -

Deathstroke #14
Deathstroke #15
Hal Jordan and the GLC #14
Hal Jordan and the GLC #15
Hal Jordan and the GLC #16
Hal Jordan and the GLC #17
Wonder Woman #18
Wonder Woman #13
Wonder Woman #15
Wonder Woman #17
Wonder Woman #19
Detective Comics #953
Wildstorm #2

Ultimates II #7
Mighty Thor #17
Unworthy Thor #5 (the whisper is revealed)

Bloodshot #0
X-O Manowar #1
Black Hammer #7
Copperhead #11
Green Valley #6
Injection #11
Motor Girl #4
 .... and so much more.
 :D

Unworthy Thor #5 (the whisper is revealed)



ABOUT DAMNED TIME

AMEN!!!

Better not be some shit like
"You jaywalked"
 :D
(I do hear it is three words)

EDIT - and it is three words. This could not have been Aaron's idea. Just couldn't be. Could it? This may not be up there with the way Marvel ended IvX (which if you don't know it was basically
Medusa saying "Oh, the cloud is killing Mutants? I'm sorry, I didn't know. Lets all work together and stop that"
 :( ::) ::) ::) >:(), but it is close. If you want to avoid this, though I am sure the internet will be blazing with angry eye-rolling soon, move on past this spoiler, but if you would like to see what Marvel is telling us, trying to sell us on what Fury whispered to Thor to make him not be able to lift the hammer -
"Gorr Was Right" - Yes Gorr. From the early part of Aarons run. This alien Gorr hated gods and thought they all should die because, well, to spin it towards this resolve ... all gods are worthy of nothing but contempt. It isn't just Thor, but all Gods and so Thor, realizing this was true, subconsciously or whatever, could no longer lift Mjornir as he knew he was, yes, Unworthy.
 :-\


Finally starting Civil War II!

My condolences
 :D

I figured I wouldn't be able to avoid it for six months so I looked.  Man that is dumb.

 ;D
I hear ya!!

Just swung by Bleeding cool and they have the picture of Thor's reaction after Nick Fury whispered what he did and ... well, needless to say ... It is a little misleading.

Nick Fury - "(whispers)"
Thor - "WHAT...? WHAT DID THOU SAY?"

The reaction just doesn't fit for me, ya know  :D

 :)

EDIT -
Nick Fury - "(whispers)"
Thor - "WHAT...? WHAT DID THOU SAY? I can save how much on my insurance by switching to MidgardCo"

Nick Fury - "(whispers)"
Thor - "WHAT...? WHAT DID THOU SAY? Ivory soap has a clean 99.44?!?!"

Nick Fury - "(whispers)"
Thor - "WHAT...? WHAT DID THOU SAY? Jerry? I am NOT the father?"

Looks like you're set to start the main story of CWII
Starts okay and while it is pretty wordy at times, make sure you also leave time for yourslef to handle the anger, or at least disappointment
 ;D  ;)

I dropped it, but I jumped back on for this new villain that was in these issues

Great progress on Saturday.  So far I like Civil War II.  Hopefully you've lowered my expectations enough for this to be enjoyable!   ;D

I certainly hope so. I doubt it ;D, but I hope so.

Getting through DC so well I was able to start on a monthly !!!
 ;D
And yeah, Jeff, you too!
 :)

Plus, I am torn. I am kinda glad Deathstroke will be going to monthly after issue #19 (the Teen and Titans crossover) as it will be a little easier to stay on top of my DC reading with just one less issue, but I am really worried Priest will not be a part of it. DC stated, according to BC, that the title is going in a "bold new direction" once that occours. That usually means the creative team has "bolted in a new direction"

Yeah, and if not, you came close  :)

I was lucky and, like you stated, was able to get through a lot of my backlogged DC stuff. Still have a few more to get on, and I am looking for a title or two to drop to not get me in this hole again. I almost just gave up on Deathstroke, for example, because I was so far behind. I didn't want to and I am really glad I didn't, but I do look forward to it going monthly now and possibly dropping it entirely if there is a new creative team I will not enjoy coming on with that change.
