Keeping my list short this week as I am going to try ... TRY and get some back issues read this week. And I mean both the back issues of the magazine BACK ISSUE I have yet to read AND some regular comic back issues.
However, I am not sure what bac ... older stuff I will end up reading, so I am just gonna list the new stuff I am going to try and get to this week and fill out the rest as we go

Justice League #41
Justice League #42
Justice League #43
The Terrifics #3

Avengers #690 (the end of the weekly run and the set-up for Jason Aaron's Fresh Start I suspect)
Dr. Strange #389 (last Damnation tie-in)
Damnation #4 (last Damnation)
Moon Knight #194
Thanos Annual (the last issue of Cates amazing run  Cry)
Thor #706

And actually, there is a lot more on this list than I originally thought Sad
10 comics is not going to lend itself for having time to be "knocking out" a lot of older back issues

Love Tom Hardy. Other than Dunkirk, I can't think of a bad (overrated) movie he has been in. Not really.
However, I also can't recall a movie, set in modern times, that had sand buggys in them that turned out to be a good movie. 

Venom? Has both.
Oh boy which way will the pendulum swing?

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
Dr. Strange #388 - The Damnation arc is almost over and this issue was about the best yet. So good.

I got it digitally and also ordered a hard copy to be deliverd.  I agree it's one every collector will want in his collection.

I still need to read it though.   Grin

So I am hearing, all over Twitter, that this movie rocks. Has blown the face off most if not all people that I "follow" that have seen it, with many more of them posting other quotes like "You will love this movie. My jaw is still on the floor! Avoid Spoilers!"

With that in mind, I am changing my usual the Tuesday or Wednesday, after the opening week-end, matinee viewing around 10 or 11, to this Friday at 8:40. Not trying to go an entire week, much less all week-end trying to avoid spoilers.

So I must have hit the wrong thread when they next to each other, but here is what I TRIED to post in this thread.

Action Comics #1000

What a spectacular event. A comic that has been published for 80 years (essentially).

My thoughts on this book will be ... a lot different than most. There is a lot of love (deserving) in here, but a most the stories, and there are a lot, tend to be the kind of stories that made me not like Supes in the first place. There is a, and I hate to use this term as it has been overused so many times, but there is a Boy Scout aspect here that I just don't overly enjoy.

Now that makes this the perfect issue for the character. It celebrates the core of this iconic character to the utmost and makes Superman fans or even comic fans such as myself, really appreciate this character. No, I didn't love the stories here, but man I did respect the love that went into them.

This book is worth the money. Period

You get 10 short Superman stories (which I will try not to spoil, but still read only if you don't care -
1 - Jurgens doing a story where all the DC characters a planning a celebration of Supes
2 - Tomasi/Gleason doing a great history/time story
3 - Wolfman/Curt Swan doing a hostage story (which the ink made Swans not look like Swan  Angry)
4 - Levitz/Neal Adams with a story about chess ... that I did not like at all
5 - Johns-Donner/Coipel with a great homage to the first Action cover  Cheesy Liked this, except the ending
6 - Snyder/Albuquerque and a young Clark and young Lex story that should have hit, but not for me
7 - King/Mann with my favorite story with Supes and the cemetery where Martha and Jon (their name changed in #158  Wink
8 - Simonson/Ordway and CLark's 5 minute deadline for Perry
9 - Dini/Garcia-Lopez with my 2nd favorite story featuring an alien we all know
10- Meltzer/Cassady and a too long short story about a bullet
11 - Bendis/Lee - Whoah boy, Bendis is here. Undecided Okay, in all fairness all these other stories where done in one while this one is more of a sneak peak or just the intro to what Bendis has planned. And they didn't do him any help putting this story in the back, after all those other ones, but I was less than thrilled by what I read. This new villain, whose design I hate, may end up being "cool" or worthy, but not here. Not yet. I did like the addition of another Super and hope that remains the case, but ... no ... I am not going to pass judgement yet. Maybe it is better I wasn't blown away by the first glance of Bendis with Supes. Nowhere to go but up now and hey, if this IS what will be the new Superman stuff, I can save some time by reading more of the stuff I need to catch up on

In closing, while this isn't a book I would usually praise, I think everyone should have a copy of this book. It is worth the price if you are even slightly a fan of Superman and if you are not ... this caped dude deserves some respect, so buy this book

Yeah, Jeff nailed it. I just couldn't put it in the Superman thread.
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Okay, moving it there now. Or copying it there now ...  Grin
