I am going to try my best to read more of the older stuff I have and less of the newer stuff.

Going to try and finally start that Legion of SuperHeroes run from 1984 ... THIS ONE (https://www.comixology.com/Legion-of-Super-Heroes-1984-1989/comics-series/7701?ref=c2VhcmNoL2RldGFpbC9kZXNrdG9wL2xpc3Qvc2VyaWVzU2VhcmNoRGV0YWlsTGlzdA)

And get more MoKF in as well.

Other than that ... maybe the following as well

Dr Strange #390
Thor: At the Gates of Valhalla One-Shot
Moon Knight #195

Hal and the GLC #42
Hal and the GLC #43
Hal and the GLC #44
Hal and the GLC #45
Justice League - No Justice #2
Justice League - No Justice #3

And we will see if I get to even half of those before I commit to more
 :D

(1984 baxter paper)
LoSH #1
LoSH #2
LoSH #3
LoSH #4 - Must be kismet. I started this series yesterday, one day before it would have been exactly 34 years after #1 hit the stands (May 24th, 1984)  :D
(1984 Regular series)
LoSH #314
LoSH #315
LoSH #316 - Don't remember ever reading this side of the series (after it split in two titles after issue #313) so this is all new for me. Not as fun as the Baxter side, so far, and only 8 more issues before it starts reprinting the Baxter paper series anyway, so I hope to get something out of this before then.

Black Hammer: Age of Doom #2 - I keep forgetting to look at the Dark Horse releases for the week but saw this at the shop and was pleasantly surprised. Lot more stuff happens here, one thing I am not really happy about
(the way the new Black Hammer got out of Hell so easily)
but other than that ... good stuff. Oh and THAT LAST PAGE!!!  :D

Thor: At the Gates of Valhalla One-Shot

Trust me one day you'll look at those 11 year old kids and wonder where all the time went.  And it will go faster than you think.

Sometimes I don't like thinking how the little one is already 4 months old!!

Incredible, isn't it? And yeah, like Jeff said, ya just turn around one day and your kids are 8 years older. Of course you are 15 years older at that same time, which I still haven't figured out how that works yet.
 :-\ :D

Nope - not gonna look at that spoiler!!  I haven't gotten to issue 1 yet!   :D

Haha, yeah, just wait it out, man, just wait it out.
 :)

Man - your really making me miss the Legion!!

Hell, I should be on issue 13 of that series if I would only stop trying to read everything in each panel  :D. Ya know, that darn 31st century alphabet they use called INTERLAC (http://www.littlestuffedbull.com/images/2012/littlecoolthings/titansA8/lsh2-311.jpg). I look up every damn thing. There was a container vessel in orbit with the name "Moo" for example.  :D Luckily, I have gotten pretty good at recognizing the word "Brand" so I don't have to look that one up anymore.  ;) Now if I can only get good at differentiating the "H" from the "L" all would be better

And it's been fun, but ya really need to turn your "70's comic brain" on when you read Legion (especially with Levitz at the helm). And that can be fun and somewhat less so depending on the story and art  :-\ but yeah, so far, fun is the word.

A few more knocked out last night and today -

LoSH #5
LoSH #6
LoSH #7 - So THAT was a surprise. I never realized that this Legionnaire died. That was a shock to me.
Hal and the GLC #42
Hal and the GLC #43
Hal and the GLC #44
Hal and the GLC #45 - F'n nice arc is what this is. I have always liked the look of the Darkstars, but I know nothing about them (I was out of comics when they had their own stuff going on, I think) but I am loving the look of these guys even more now. This has been one hell of a fun read!!!!!

The first issue hit me the same way. Sad to know that I may feel the exact same after the next couple as well  :-\

Think I am done for this week -

LoSH #317
LoSH #318 - I wonder whatever happened to this artists Shoemaker? I like the look on this. Also ... I am shocked at how much Wildfire is a dick here.  :D I knew he was a gung-ho type of guy, but jeez, he is being a true dick. I don't remember him that way, but here it is.  ;D
Books of Magic #1
Books of Magic #2 - With the Neil Gaiman Universe ready to begin, I thought I would try some of the older, magic stuff. Learn more about this Tim Hunter. Not sure if I will get into the series or not, but maybe.

Really thinking about dropping even more current titles and read more and more of the older stuff now. At least for a few. It is at the point of repetitiveness with the big two for me right now. That comes and goes with me. It will disappear (the feeling, not the actual repetitiveness  :D)  but for now, yeah, some stuff just not exciting me.

There is still some great stuff out there, but a lot is just stuff I read and then forget or want to.
 ;D
Again, this feeling will pass, but for now it is a good time to include more of the other stuff or older stuff.

I go through the same thing and then I realize with the cost I shouldn't be buying things I'm not enjoying (or remembering the day after I read).  Sometimes that happens, I drop something, and then months later I'm interested again and go back and buy all those issues.  Sometimes it just depends on your mood.
