And as soon as I start to think that DC has finally learned from Marvel's failures and bullcrap, DC trhows a huge "tie-in" list at us for Metal.

Yep, things are bad all over.

Not saying it was bad ...

That's okay, you can leave that all to me. It was bad.

"Cuz it was bad ya'll. It was bad ya'll. It was badder than bad and its bad ya'll"

and while the MU app is far prom perfect it is miles better than the app i had to download...navigation is horrible.

just read Gold...like almost every other X-men reboot it tries to hard to recapture Claremont.  Not saying it was bad but rather cliche...didnt hate seeing the baseball game, always enjoyed them in the past but it feels forced.  more talking head spewing bigotry thinly disguised as saving the world.  kitty apologizing to normals for the inhuman thing when the inhumans dropped a biohazard on top of NY (along with their floating city) killing and/or mutating folks without regard or apology.

not going out to buy this anytime soon...i will wait for MU.

Batman #25

I ... I am just totally lost here. I like Tom King as a writer, I do. Heck as far as I can tell he is a nice guy as well, so bonus points! But, and I know I have been saying this since issue #1, as much good that is here (or in the case of the last 22 issues, somewhat good that is here) this guy in this book is just not Batman.

I was really psyched about this "War of Jokes and Riddles" arc, pitting the Joker against the Riddler, but ya know, I just ... I just don't know what to say. I am beginning to believe that Tom King just needs to stick with the B-side characters, bring them more to life than ever, and leave the uber popular ones alone.

His Vision and his Omega Men, neither what you would call "making the big time" gigs, were flat out spectacular and I do still have very high, extremely high hopes for his Miracle Man 12 issues maxi that will soon hit, but as many times as I have walked away after reading this title feeling like I enjoyed it, I just haven't felt like I have been reading Batman.

Now, when you throw in two such dynamic and important Batman aspects into the story the cracks begin to show, for me, even more.

Again, I still like this, but ...
 Undecided

And as I am not going into details about the story or issue, I decided to just leave this brief and oh so small admonishment here, in the Reading Thread, instead of moving it to Batman where it (maybe) should go
 Cheesy

EDIT -
Then I would be "Live" (meaning six months behind) each week on my Marvel.

Sweet. And how many do you think you will keep up with then? I would say ... eh ... you could get by with about 15 or so. Maybe a couple more or less counting Star Wars. I don't read Poe Dameron, but I know you do.

Do you want to get something for the money? Fine: Send a check to my PO Box, PO Box 951, Bayport, NY 11705 along with books of mine and a SASE and Iíll sign them and send them back. Thatís something, I guess.

Translation:  "I'm a such an incredibly important and famous person that I will bless a little guy like you with my highly valuable autograph if you please just gimme a 5 dollar bill.  Oh, and please don't forget to pay for the return postage."

Almost felt sorry for the guy.  Going with Jimmy's Option #2 as well.

redeemed the coupon yesterday and plan on reading them.

odd thing is i could not get them on my unlimited app and had to download a separate app.  kind of odd as i'd like to keep them all together and use a sing app...of course it could be user error

Looks like we posted right about the same time.  Not user error on your part - I had to do the same thing.  I guess its a separate app for things you purchase?

So I went out to the link and got the Free issues.  I had to download a different Marvel reader app I guess for purchased comics.  No biggy so I got them.

Then check this out - I went to ComiXology today and there they are - in my library listed as "Recently Purchased"!!

I guess I had linked the two together ages ago thinking I was linking MU?  Who knows, but pretty cool that I can get things in the Marvel app and it will show up in ComiXology.

Way too many great runs out there that i would loved to have seen extended

I would agree wholeheartedly with CapMarvel....great series.

For me and should it be obvious...i would have loved more Doug Moench/Bill Sienkiewicz MoonKnight.  That was the team (Pre MK#1 backups from Rampaging Hulk Magazine) that really got me actively collecting and searching out specific characters/creators

2nd would be Peter Gillis/Brent Anderson's Strikeforce: Moritori...it was such a departure from what was being presented and had a great twist for the consequences of power.
