Continuing my horror reads this week -

Ice Cream Man #3 - A decent Twilight Zone'ish, old musician story.
Infidel #1
Infidel #2
Infidel #3 - Another book I wasn't going to read until I was forced ... "FORCED" I SAY!!!! ... into reading it, but daaaamn, once again, I am glad I had no choice in the matter.  ;D A real good human drama story with some great creep is what lies within these pages. A 5 issue mini well worth reading!! (At least so far)

Marvel done. 

Marvel Unlimited
Daredevil 595 - Not sure what I think of Fisk as mayor but this title seldom disappoints.
Generation X 8 - Hate what they're doing with Monet.  Hope they fix it soon.
Jessica Jones 14 - Purple Man!!
Master of Kung Fu 126 - Man - that Master of Kung Fu issue was terrible.  Very disappointed.
Moon Knight 188 - I'm getting tired of the asylum stories but this one was still good.
Uncanny Avengers 29 - Not buying what happened at the end.  Seems out of character for the team.

Master of Kung Fu 126

Man, I didn't even know this was a thing. I know the true MoKF ended for me at issue #120 (though some others may like the last five issues), but I honestly didn't know they made anything after #125 until you just said so.

It showed up in MU this week so I thought I'd give it a try.  Looks like it was a one-shot published last year.

Sure! I'm just glad you saved me the time/money as had I known that puppy was out, I would have been the one that suffered through it.
 ;D

Knocked out a few more

Ice Cream Man #4 - Another "decent" issue and while that's not bad, I just have too much I want to read so yeah, I'm out
Redneck #7
Redneck #8
Redneck #9
Redneck #10
Redneck #11
Redneck #12 - Man, I got onto this title again as I was in a "horror" mood anyway, but once that Donny Cates dialog hits me I just can't stop. Now the wait until the third arc starts.  >:(


Ice Cream Man #3
Infidel #1
Infidel #2
Infidel #3

Great series.  I'm so glad you turned me on to it.  I'm only up to issue 11.  Gotta wait until next month for issue 12 to drop in price but it will be at the top of the read list when I get it.

Super glad you are digging it. I just can't wait for you guys at MU to get his Thanos arc. Man ... soooo good. Hope you all have not been spoiled on any aspects of that yet IE - the ending or who ... very slight story spoiler ...
Cosmic Ghost Rider is
because you find out pretty early, or at least at the halfway point, but it is a cool reveal.

I am a Donny Cates whore now.
 :D

Cool thing he and Jason Aaron are really good friends (in fact Aaron is the one that got him to Marvel) and, as you are up to date for this part ... in issue #9 ...
Cates throws in a Southern Bastards reference. When ... crap forgot his name ... when .... AARRHHHH .... anyway ... go scan through issue #9 when two guys, Dave and .... DAMN IT ... were in the truck, if you read the radio broadcast ... yeah ... Southern Bastards.
You may have seen it. I didn't even catch it the first time, but was listening to a podcast with Cates and he discusses it. I had to run back through and look. Cates also talks about how although it was a neat idea, and he asked Aaron about it before to make sure he was okay with it happening, it doesn't make a lick of sense as they are in Texas and Southern Bastards is Alabama and there is no way that people in Texas would ... well, if you read it ('red' or 'reed' it  :D), ya know what I mean.
 :D

And I am also Glad Image does that sale thing. Good way to do it I think.
 :)
Although I do prefer those dollar days at Comixology a bit more, as I am sure we all do
 :D

I did catch that while I was reading it!  Made me laugh.  I didnít even think about the Texas/Alabama aspect not making sense.   :D

What WAS a fast start, calm to a screeching halt (or at least an extreme drop in velocity). Didn't get a lot more done
 :-\

I did read the first issue of Garth Ennis new Aftershock comic called A WALK THROUGH HELL, but I was so tired that I got to the end and had no idea whatsoever what I had just read, couldn't even remember the characters, so I need to re-read that one all the way through again.

Other that that -

Master of Kung Fu #72 - Jeff brought the ole MoKF title up again and reminded me I have quite a few issues of that title to read. I got off my butt and read this issue and had plans on getting to issue #73 but ... nope. Even still this was a cool issue featuring Shockwave (whom I had forgotten was related to the head honcho, Sir Denis Nayland Smith!!). Yep good stuff.
Plus, I bet it was a lot more fun than the issue Jeff had to suffer through
 ;)

The Dead Hand #1
The Dead Hand #2 - Kyle Higgins new comic that is getting a lot of attention. The end of #2 tells why. Good stuff
Harbinger Wars II Prelude - And speaking of getting attention, this book got mine. This may be even better than the first go 'round. Looking forward to this event, even though I am sooo behind on both X-O and Ninjak (How in the hell did THAT happen?)

Same here.  I didn't make any further than I have listed on my last post.  Mainly because I've been watching a lot of playoff hockey.  With Memorial Day coming up I'm thinking I'll get further along on the next list.

Jesus, I really need to slow my typing.
"...calm" to a screeching halt?
Perry, jeez, slow down, man.
