Not sure what I am going to try to get to this week, especially because I am torn on trying to read that Wonder Woman/JLD x-over ... something I am now almost sworn away from finishing for now or starting my newly promised Older List, so not sure what I am going o do yet  ;D Well, other than the following:

MoKF #20
MoKF #21
MoKF #22

Manhunter #2
Manhunter #3
Manhunter #4
LoSH #15

After that (or before/during that) who knows

Just gonna let the comics guide me

"The Untouchable" - Nightwing #36-41
Pretty good story.  Entered a little bit into the weird but it is Sam Humphries after all.    :)

Perry - Not sure if you read this or not but I think you are reading Nightwing.  What did you think if you did?

I think so ... BRB

EDIT - Yeah,  ;D Oh how age works the brain!!  :D We discussed it a little bit. I jumped BACK on Nightwing because I wanted to try Humphries arc and I really like the "new" antagonist, but ... well ... this

Hey Perry - I still have that arc that starts in with issue 35 by Sam Humphires in my Wish List.

Did you finish reading it?  Is it worth getting?  The Trade collecting these is about to come out too.
Ya know, Jeff, I honestly don't remember reading the last issue of Humphries run so I can't swear to how it ended up (I could have just forgot, keep in mind) but I do remember it petering out a few issues in ... or shortly after the halfway mark. Started really strong and it may have rebounded from its one or two issue slump and ended great, but I can't say I suggest it fully, because I don't remember the end.

I found the character, the antagonist pretty interesting, I do remember that, but man ... I am struggling with the memory on how the final confrontation went and/or if I enjoyed it or even if I read it
 :-\

 :D

But Jeff .. JEFF!!!!!
Quantum Age #3 !!!!
Oh holly shit!!!
That last reveal!!!!
Read it now, don't skip ahead to sneak peak, read the issue and then grab your jaw and place it back where it belongs because it may be on the floor!!!!
SO COOL!!!

Well, I don't want you to spend the extra buck and not think it worth it (no way it can compete with actual money  ;D), so ... just stay away from spoilers man. This is really something you want to see/read when you flip the page.

EDIT - May as well add some reads!

Michael Cray #12 - Last issue. Man, the art just about obliterated this series. Could have been so much better
Manhunter #2
Manhunter #3 - A serious good comic. I have always heard this book was one of the better ones out there at the time and boy is it. May have to extend my DC Ultimate to a month to finish reading this series. Something I don't want to do, but I highly doubt I can find these at the LCS or Daves
 >:(

Quantum Age #3 - Not saying anything more as I know my mouth will slip and I will spoil something.

Man, Terry Moore is at a level no one else can get to.  These final issues of SIP Vol 3 are bringing it all to an amazing conlusion and just blowing it out of the park.  I'm going to have to read through "Echo" next because I understand that the latest volume of SIP brings all of his works together; SIP, Rachel Rising, Echo, and Motor Girl.


Title: Re: Weekly Reader, October 10, 2018
Post by: Perry on October 13, 2018, 03:42:18 AM
After reading the first few issues waaaaaay back when, God only knows when I will ever get to reading through all of SiP, but glad I can look forward to it. I do love Terry Moore and have HC's of the two shorter and my two favorite titles of his (Echo and RR) so I do hope to get to it one year. (although I hate the size of those two HC's  >:()

As for me, trying to knock out more of that Manhunter series on DC Ultimate before my free week is up (need to finish watching Titans as well .., watched the first 10 minutes last night), but I did check the LCS (and Dave) and they have sporadic issues here and there (well, Dave had none  :D) but Comixology has all the Manhunter issues for only $2, so need to see if I want to just stay on DCU for another month, pay the $8 and finish reading the run or if I wan't to buy the series to have for the future. I am really happy with the way it is written, so I may just suck it up and buy the run for the $70+ but $8 to read a series I am enjoying is also a thing to consider and damn sure more financially feasible  ;)
We will see.

Infinity Wars #3
Infinity Wars #4 - As much as I thought "Countdown" was just "okay", I'm having much more fun with this arc. No idea why :D
Avengers #9 - One of the few Marvel titles I am going to try and stay up on, blew me away!!! I am just not sold on Mcguinness art on Aaron's writing but David Marguez? WHOA BOY!!! That said, Aaron really, really made me mad at the start (can't say why without spoilers so I won't) but I later realized how important that action was to the story and it also, really, doesn't effect the future with the ... costume (Yeah, I will wait for you other MU guys to get here  :D) I will also say, and not a spoiler as it is on the cover, Marvel now has it's Emo Lobo with the look of the new Namor. Not really sold on the look, but the "Namor" is certainly there in that character and that is the important thing, so I am fine with it. But then again, I liked the new Lobo sooooo
 :-\

Manhunter #4 - Much like the Punisher, Kate now has her "gizmo" guy!  :D

Pestilence #4
Pestilence #5 - Found I never finished this 6 issue mini (they now have a new one coming out) so I went ahead and re-read the last two issues that I DID read those many months ago to get a refresher, prior to reading the last issue and maybe trying the new one. (Which is being counted by me as "reading through all my old series" ... not as picking up a new title)
 :D

Avengers is still holding my interest.  "Shards of Infinity" had some poor writing IMO.  Astonishing X-Men - not bad but losing my attention.

Thanos: The Infinity Siblings - as I started this I began to think it was familiar.  Finally started flipping through it and realized I had already read this.  Is this re-packaged?  Because it said 2018 but I know I read this last year sometime and not in digital format.  All well - just meant I got to scratch it off my list sooner than I thought!

Ah ha!  I must have gotten it for free or something on ComiXology.  Looks like I got it from there when it came out in April 2018.  Mystery solved.

It was on sale for 99 on Comixology back when Marvel was having those back to back weeks of incredible sale prices (70 to 95% off) so you, like most of us, snatched it up then

Didn't read much over the last few days, but I was able to knock out

Manhunter #5
Manhunter #6 - Continuing this story and it is so good that I am keeping DC Ultimate for one more month to read more
Wonder Woman/ Justice League Dark #1 - Like Jeff, I feel this is okay but nothing great. However, as it is close to Halloween, I am enjoying it a tad more
 :D


Infinity Wars #3
Infinity Wars #4
Avengers #9
Manhunter #4

Pestilence #4
Pestilence #5
