No Action Comics #1,000?

How dare you sir!  ;) Even I, the one that is about as low on Supes as any character out there, have plans on lapping that book up like a dehydrated labrador that just found his water bowl.
(Real world situation going on behind me)
 :D :D

I haven't gone through the other publishers yet, so I am sure there is something there I need to read or catch up (most assuredly catch up on), but I am going to TRY and get through at least -

Action Comics #1000 ...  *cough*like any decent comic reader*cough*  :D :D (I may even buy the print version) :o
Superman #45
Batman #45
Mister Miracle #7
Mister Miracle #8
Justice League #41
Justice League #42
Justice League #43

Amazing Spider-Man #799
Avengers #689
Exiles #1
Infinity Countdown #1
Infinity Countdown #2

and whatever old series I get sidetracked on this week
 :D

Oh it's pre-ordered - just hadn't hit at the time I was making my list.   ;D

I'm gonna hit all my DC reading next week which includes Action 1000, Aquaman 35, Batman 45, Justice League 43, Mister Miracle 8, and Super Sons 15 - plus whatever comes out next week.   ;D

Perry - no Black Hammer? 

I'll pick it up next month after the price drops on ComiXolgy but you normally get it the day it comes out.

At the time, I hadn't gone through them yet  :)

I haven't gone through the other publishers yet, so I am sure there is something there I need to read ...

But I did forget it was coming out today, so thanks

EDIT - Hope that didn't sound harsh.  ;D

No harsher than me, my friend.   :D

I like picking on people so I have to enjoy getting picked on myself.  He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword.   :D

Yeah, I know I liked it back in the day, but never finished it. I need to, of course, but ... yaah, it's just sitting there, on the list, waiting.
 :(

In-fact, I don't think I even finished reading his ECHO  :o

Or, oh man, what was I ... I don't think ... no, I didn't finish reading Rachel Rising yet either :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

What am I doing?? How is Motor Girl, a comic that was good, but certainly the ... least favorite of all of these titles, the ONLY book of his I have finished reading? What the Hell, Perry?
 >:(

I need to get myself organized and prioritized

If you were a ComiXology Unlimited member you could read almost all of Rachel Rising for free.  Just saying.   ;D

 ;D
Sad thing is I got it. In fact I have it and Echo in the hardcover sitting on my shelves right beside me (short little suckers though  :-\) ... but I just can't believe I never finished either ... or none, counting SiP

I even started thinking about all the series I have started AND enjoyed that I have yet to finish and it is sad indeed. I think I need to take a break from a lot of current big two stuff, keep up on just the "important to their universe" books (Like Amazing, Justice League, Action, Bats, Thor, Cap ... etc  :D) and spend some time finishing up some of the great (or mediocre) titles I need to finish that have been over long enough for me to have read them.

I never finished (off the top of my head):
SiP
Echo
Rachel Rising
Hellboy (nor any titles in that universe ... even though technically this series is still going on in BPRD)
Morning Glories
Invincible
Invisibles (which I just thought of when I mistyped Invincible)
Swamp Thing (Alan Moore ... which I just thought of when I thought about Morrison  :D)
PAD's Hulk run
Hellblazer (Vertigo)
and I am sure there are more ... lots more ...

Not to mention the current ongoings that I really was enjoying but fell off on (as in more than 10 issues behind, at least) -
Star Wars
Saga
East of West
Daredevil
Black Science
Sex Criminals
Papergirls
Redneck
Royal City
Southern Bastards
The Wicked and the Divine
Lazarus
X-O Manowar
Uber

And that is not even counting the titles I have wanted to try buy have yet to open to the first page:
Wayward
Rat Queens
Harrow County
Manifest Destiny
,,, and I know there are more that I wanted to try, but my brain has now shut-down due to sorrow

 :-\

EDIT - I couldn't stop thinking about this list yesterday. I may have to fix this soon

In that case you have no excuse!  Ha, ha!  That is until we see the rest of your unread list!

I had more to type but gotta go to a meeting with the boss...I'll be back!

Added -
Super Sons #14
Super Sons #15 - So gonna miss this  :-\

Added-

Quick update

Action Comics #1000 - EDIT - finished will discuss in DC
Superman #45
Batman #45
Mister Miracle #7
Mister Miracle #8 - Honestly, I read these back to back and they could have been the same issue.  :-\ More later.
Justice League #41
Justice League #42
Justice League #43
Super Sons #14
Super Sons #15
Added -
Hal and the GLC #40 - The story is good and it continues, but looking for end of this Zod arc
Deathstroke #29
Deathstroke #30 - Glad twenty-nine finally came around (was also looking for closure there), but issue thirty's "Deathstroke Vs Batman" was very much leaning to Deathstroke.  :) I know it is his title, so there had to be some of that, but the Bat in the water scene still has me a little ... well ...  :) And to top it off, THIS is exactly the kind of book I need to stop reading if I am ever going to start reading all those other titles I have neglected over the past few years. Not that this is a bad book, of course it isn't, but there are always tons of good books that find a way and will always find away to keep my eyes away from what I am trying to do, which is get back on some of those books that I let slip and didn't finish or I let slip by and never started.

Amazing Spider-Man #799
Avengers #689
Exiles #1
Infinity Countdown #1
Infinity Countdown #2

Black Hammer v2: Age of Doom #1

I read comics!

But I'm about 9 months behind on Marvel (haven't read Legacy yet!) And I'm 2 months behind on DC.

But I'm getting there! Will mention some stuff here or there!

Not making it, not getting to the Justice League books even if I do read more tonight before bed, but we came close this week.
 :D

Amazing Spider-Man #799 - I liked the issues leading up to this more, kinda screwy reveal at the end too
Avengers #689 - All over but the singing now. I think the next issue, just a what next, will be best one.
Exiles #1 - Not too sure what to think about this. Well done, but probably not going to stick with me.
Infinity Countdown #1
Infinity Countdown #2 - They could easily have just kept GotG going as this is all that is. Another Guardians story.
Marvel Universe Magazine #1
Iron Fist #80
Punisher #218
Added-
Dr. Strange #388 - The Damnation arc is almost over and this issue was about the best yet. So good.
