Nuts; I was actually going to try and start this before Jeff! Oh well. :)

That said, I added some books on Comixology (bought 7 to Eternity v2, and Black Magick v1), but I've got a backlog to read yet.

I will add:

Comixology
7 to Eternity v2
Kaptara v1
Jupiter's Legacy v2
Starlight
God Country

Unlimited
Gotta check my list out and update it here, but I did finish up my respective volumes of DP and Wolverine, so I'll discuss that briefly.

and Black Magick v1)


That one is on my list for this week.  Be interesting to see what we both think.

Kaptara v1 I remember Perry recommending this more, and I enjoyed the silly little tale for what it is. Considering no other issue has come out in 2 years *(they say they are getting several finished before soliciting), well...not sure I care that much to finish this, to be honest! Glad I had a fun little read.

Jupiter's Legacy v2 OMG Jeff , this was amazing!!! And we have to wait until 2019 sometime for the first issue of Requiem? ARGHH SO GOOD DON'T WANNA WAIT!!!!

Starlight I really enjoyed this little tale from beyond the stars. The best part of it was the missing love story Duke feels for his missing wife. Not one of Millar's greatest works, but a good, sweet tale, and with plenty of gotcha! moments that brought a smile to my face reading. good stuff.

God Country

Unlimited

Starlight was one of my favorites from Millar. It hit all my buttons; action, human emotion, and just a great sci fi story.  Iím glad you Gita chance to check it out and enjoyed it.

Jupiterís Legacy - I know 2019!!!!  Killing me too.

WOW!  This Wonderland is some twisted, effed up horror stuff!  I might need to start a separate thread.

I never seem to have my tablet around to look at what I read on unlimited this week, so I sometimes cheat and look at Jeff's. It's fun to think of what books I'm reading that Jeff is not and what Jeff is reading that I'm not! Such as I know I read X-Men gold 3 it's not on Jeff's list. We both have all new Guardians, Jean Grey, secret Empire 1, Spider-Man, Iron Fist, and I can't remember the rest of the list but there's some other stuff I read that he did not. I'll get back to you later when I actually have time to talk on them

Oh yeah! Bullseye number for and Spider-Man 2099 23! Those are the other two I read.

Oops!  Spider-Man 2099 #23 is in my library, looks like I forgot to list it.

X-Men Gold and Bullseye I stopped adding.  Bullseye because the story was just dumb and X-Men Gold because of the reasons we talked about in the X-Men Gold thread.

Iíve been reading Nova just for the fact that the original Nova is back. What they are doing with him is kind of dumb so Iíll likely drop it again once heís gone.

Hawkeye is one you should try. Itís a fun title and I love Kate Bishops character.

Oh this is a dead series now, I fear, just don't see it ever coming back now, but am totally shocked you didn't enjoy it as much as I did. He-Man (universe) told in the form of a Lewis Carroll comedy? Oh I figured you to be all over this Cheshire Battlecat on LCD type story.
 ;D
I loved it. Loved the craziness and the take on what was my brothers favorite toys growing up. Wacky and represents a lot of what modern comics lack, a true look into themselves with the knowledge it is okay to be stupid and not take yourself too serious as you are just comics after-all.
 ;) :)
But maybe it was a case of perfect timing for me. Just the comic I needed/wanted at the time I read it. It happens.
 :)

OH, I liked it! I don't think to the degree that you did, but I hope it didn't seem like I was poo-pawing it! Reading some fun, wacky stuff is always very good every once in a while! and for that, I'm glad, and have no regrets. ;)

X-Men gold 3  Discussed elsewhere, nothing great in reading here. We'll see how things keep going...but...not terribly interesting.

All new Guardians 1 A big new drop, a new volume sans Bendis' influence by Duggan. However, this is entirely based on the movie. I'm sorry, it just is. I don't care for that at all. I found reading it to be rather pedestrian and boring, and just...not worthwhile. I don't feel it has the history of the characters behind them, I feel it is only the voices of the movie coming through instead. Which, in the movies, I I love. But the movies and the characters are just different. I love them both, but they have been very different. Until now.

Jean Grey 1 So...much..I don't...care about!! I don't think it's bad, this is just not a book for Jimmy T. That's all.

Secret Empire 1

Spider-Man 23 It was fine. Glad to see Miles just go do something worth-while. I liked that moment. Nothing really more to talk about here. Well, not true. His mom coming to grips more with truths she didn't understand was a little heartbreaking, especially with the Ganke reveal. By the way, that dude needs to get his ass kicked for using Miles' identity in such cavalier ways.

Spider-man 2099 23So close to being done! Sorry Miguel!!

Iron Fist 3 enjoying reading it! I like the little twist of it.

Bullseye 4 One more issue. Bullseye drops a a twist to the soul truth bomb on the the FBI agent, and damn if that line just doesn't make the series.

Copperhead vol 2 (the best thing? I didn't know that vol 3 was also available for purchase!) I liked volume 2. 5 issues talking about 2-3 days in Copperhead. I like, but I'm greedy because I just want more! More about Boo's history, about the history of the war that happened there, ALWAYS more about Ishmael! Just...more! 8)

I wasn't quite sure  ;D It didn't read like you hated it, but I wasn't sure you really dug it. Anyway, glad you didn't feel time or money was wasted. Always hate when that happens.

Added and finished:

Wonderland:  House of Liddle Tpb Vol 1

To answer Perryís question- Both!

This is not what youíd think.  Itís some sick and twisted horror stuff.  Iím actually surprised I like it since thatís not something I normally enjoy.  But I really do want to find out how this all wraps up ( if it ever does).  Has little pulp aspect to it as in a side character that might be on just a couple of pages in on book may wind up being the main character in another one and you wonít realize it until the end of the story.  Iíve been sucked into the looking glass.
