Hey Jeff, did you notice that there's so much Peter David Captain Marvel that was added to unlimited this week? That's because of me! I noticed that they didn't have all of that full volume on there and I sent a request. They emailed me back and said they have a lot of volume of stuff they need to do but they will attempt to get through it. So it took about 3 months but they did it!

Yes I did and I meant to post about it because I LITERALLY said to myself "Oh I wonder if Jimmy knows about this - he will love it"

Hilarious that your the one that got it done!  Awesome!!

Now when are you going to have time to read them all?   :D

Got a great jump today ... which means probably no more comics the rest of the week  :D            :-\

Black Hammer: Age of Doom #3 - And we are done with that "House". That house full of mystery and secrets  ;D
Bloodshot #9
Bloodshot #10 - Back to back Lemire. Great WWI origin story for a certain nanite pup and then ... ohhhh future stuff!!!!  :)
Bloodstrike: Brutalist #0 Oh it was "Brutal" alright. Brutal getting through even 5 pages of this piece of this ... thing
Death or Glory #1
Death or Glory #2 - Was NOT expecting this Remender book to be like this. I really enjoyed it. That wasn't the surprising part, the pre-order description made this out to be about cars and the open road and well, I can see some of that, it isn't truly the crux. I am on this puppy for the long haul. The art by Bengal is very "Speed Racer"'esque while being not like that at all at the same time.  :D Not sure this has legs to be a long comic run, but I don't need it to be!!

Hawkman #1 - Pretty good issue but one thing bugs me ... when Carter hits his wing button ...
What the hell happened to his shirt and pants???

Thanks to an extended visit to the car dealership for a window fix, I was able to bust out a couple more issues while I enjoyed their 5 cups of free coffee
 ;D

Infidel #4 - A good horror title that I wish I would have waited until all issues were out before I read. Memory issues!
Lost City Explorers #1 - Another interested title from Aftershock! Sorta Indiana Jones meets the Abyss.
Shanghai Red #1 - Art that is very similar, though not as good, as David Aja makes this a worthy new addition
The Magic Order #1 - Mark Millar and Netflix's new title that wowed the hell outta me. This was erie in the best way
Kill or Be Killed #17
Kill or Be Killed #18
Kill or Be Killed #19 - With the end of the story coming out this week with issue #20, I thought I should go ahead and get all caught up in preparation. Man was Jeff right, having read the last couple issues, this is the right time to close out this title.

I've read:

Hal Jordan & GLC 43: You know, I have really been on board with Venditti's GL run here. Sure, there have been some gaffs or hiccups through here, but I'm loving this first issue of conflict with the Darkstars and Lanterns!!

Mister Miracle 9- I throw some water on the fire; I saw the ending coming easy enough. However, Barda and Scot viewing in the mirror? Man, there's tragedy there.

Wonder Woman 45- someone needs to bring back Superboy Prime and continuity punch this ****ing ****ty idea of a twin brother out of all Wonder Woman comics as fast as ****ing humanly possible. This is such a damned huge mistake on a grand ****ing level. This should never have happened.

Doomsday Clock 5-okay, the buidling tension and mystery is really getting to me! 7 more issues?! with lots of breaks in the publishing schedule? ARGH

Hawkman #1 -I LOVE me some Hawkman. Nothing insulting here, however, didn't I just read a mini series called DEATH OF HAWKMAN showing Kator Hol dying? So how is he back? WTF!!!!

Superman Annual- sweet stuff, and glad to see Jon and Clark do something for the last soldier. A great run.

Immortal Man #1 -I've read half of it. I still have no desire to finish it.

Terrifics #3-so, the FF parallels aren't even being hid anymore! LOL This Holt is like reading Reed from Stan's first 10 issues. He was a scientific dick then, and so is Holt here. This team is being written so polarizing dynamicly opposite each other, it's damn near jarring to read.

Deathstroke 31 -Priest is so damned good!!!

Not sure I like this new Titans.  Could be my love for the 80's version and this doesn't have that feel despite finally having Raven and Gar back on the team.  I also hate the way DC has made them subservient to the Justice League.  Nightwing doesn't need a baby sitter.  Still, I like that they'll be going up against Brother Blood right out of the gate.  I'll check out the first couple of issues of the new team and see what I think after that.

Was still able to avoid Jeff's siren call for Mister Miracle #9, but not sure how much longer I can hold out.  :D Was able to knock a few more out last night -

Marvel 2-In-1 #6 - The FF is coming back (Yay), but this book is ending with #10 (boo)
Amazing Spider-Man #801 - A less powerful issue than #800, as far as villainous impact, but still a nice way for Slott to go out. A human interest story that held my interest.

Aquaman #37 - Only one more issue to go for me, but looks like I am going out happy!!
Detective Comics #982 - A nice one-shot issue preparing us for the next writer/arc
Hal and the GLC #46 - Loving the Darkstar arc and how about Arkillo helping out at the end?

X-O Manowar #11
X-O Manowar #12
X-O Manowar #13
X-O Manowar #14
X-O Manowar #15 - Everytime I read this title, in chunks, I ask myself why do I not read this monthly. So damn good
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #2
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #3
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #4
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #5 - Very cool book. A superman lives life now without the powers he once had. BKV'esque
