The last part of the kitchen remodel is going a lot better (IE me being less involved now) than the first part, and as I am no longer spending time answering tons of questions (or describing what I want  :D) I have flown through a couple of books so far. Hope to get more in, but the wife is off work for two days after today and it is starting to warm up, so ... yeah "Honey Do's" will return
 :-\

Titans #21 - Starting to peter out a tad, but still better than it was.
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #5
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #6 - The art is pretty rough on my eyes, but man what a take on Aquaman. 3 "heroes" down
Action Comics #999 - just crazy to think about. 80+ years in the making. Crazy, I say ... Crazy!! Issue #1 hit April 1938. My Grand-Dad could have read that issue when he was 12 years old.

Astonishing X-Men #8
Astonishing X-Men #9 - I think I am done with this. It is not bad, but nothing that makes me want to dive in each month either.
Avengers #685 - Same feeling here, but I am staying on as it is ... well ... it is about the best Avengers story in some time. Not that this run is THAT good as much as ... well ... you got it, right?
Defenders #9
Defenders #10 - Man that ending was abrupt!!! This needed one more issue badly. What a waste, this title was good
Jessica Jones #16
Jessica Jones #17 - One more issue. I hope it ends better than Defenders just did. Man, that was so rushed feeling.
Marvel Two n One #4 - This is starting to feel like just an okay Fantastic Four arc ... AND I LOVE IT  :D
Punisher the Platoon #2 - Franks first days in Nam conitued

Master of Kung-Fu #71 - a good jumping on point. Sets up a lot of stuff that I remember in later issues.
Punisher: Born #1
Punisher: Born #2
Punisher: Born #3
Punisher: Born #4 - Could have sworn I read this, but flipped through the first issue and didn't ring any memory bells so I kept reading.
I had not read this.
I have now.  ;D
Strong stuff about war that could have been in any comic companies catalog, but with just enough (another character) rope to tie into the Marvel Universe, and that was cool.

This is not meant as a knock on you, at all, my man, but I find it interesting that you are still reading WD. Wow. That is dedication to sorrow  ;D ... or a strong love of zombies

Titans #21... this arc sucks.

I think it is okay. Not the best and not as good as the last one, but certainly better than anything in the first 13 or so issues. :)

But it is ending soon (in June) so hey, you will be free !!  ;) :)

True. The August solicitations are already out with a new #1 for both the Titans and Teen Titans.

Looking at the books you have left, Jeff ... Ugh ... other than Dr. Aphra and the Uncanny Avengers ... you may just want to skip them all. Not at all good reading in that bunch.
 ;D
Oh, and Astonishing was pretty cool back then too.

Yeah, just read those four issues and walk away clean, buddy
 :D

Adding more Marvel to the completed reading list before Midnight, though mostly Punisher, which is freakin' odd for me!!!!-
 :D

Titans #21
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #5
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #6
Action Comics #999

Astonishing X-Men #8
Astonishing X-Men #9
Avengers #685
Defenders #9
Defenders #10
Jessica Jones #16
Jessica Jones #17
Marvel Two n One #4
Punisher the Platoon #2
Dr. Strange: Damnation #3 - Still just loving this book. Yes the idea is stupid, but okay ... comics!
Punisher the Platoon #3
Punisher the Platoon #4
Punisher the Platoon #5
Punisher the Platoon #6 - Finishing off this mini. Pretty decent Garth Ennis "war" story. Which is why I wanted to read it. I am a huge fan of his WWII stuff, so this return to Vietnam (after reading Punisher Born) was a no-brainer. Perfect for me.
 :D
This was the story of Franks first mission in Nam. Good story. Good art.

Master of Kung-Fu #71
Punisher: Born #1
Punisher: Born #2
Punisher: Born #3
Punisher: Born #4
Punisher: The Blood #1  - So got a Punisher drive going, so weird, but hitting yet another mini. This one written by Remender. I have high hopes!!
 :)
