Actually, I'm so far behind, that I've only read the first issue of the Dr. Vet Strange. I liked it!

It was the stuff with the Secret Empire tie-iins and fill ins I thought was junk to skip over. Wink

Just a couple more (mostly off list, of course  Grin). Not sure I will read anymore tonight or not ... though I would like to get that Sandman Universe in, so maybe ...

Marvel Two-In-One #8 - Man, totally missed this one. Sucks I read this after FF #1, though, it really didn't matter  Undecided

Catwoman #2 - Not as good is the first issue, but I love this art. On for awhile!
Flash #52 - What pulled me in, the two page spread near the beginning, ended up being just a two page subplot that was dropped once ya get into the book. I still struggle with Williamson's dialog. Not the actual dialog as much as how it is paced. It just seems off. I don't notice it in his creator own Birthright, but I always seem to on Flash. Oh well, I thought they had me.
Relay #1
Relay #2
- Okay, a scientific take on religion, kinda. It is okay (great art), but think I will hold off for now.
Redneck #5 - I really dig this title, I do, but wondering if it would, like most titles, just hit better for me in collected format. I may just stop reading for a couple months and string together a nice run of issues.

Got through one ore last night -

Sandman Universe #1 - A story that introduces us to the four new "Gaiman Titles". I had been pretty set on getting all four, but now I find I'm not sure about the writing of House of Whispers, after reading the few pages I read. Of course having said that, I did think about one character for awhile after closing the book. It was hard to get that talking alligator with a top-hat out of my mind  Grin Lucifer was pretty good, though somewhat hard to read when I was so tired, while The Dreaming showed me not only am I looking forward to this, but that I need to go back and re-read Gaiman's Sandman stuff again to get reacquainted with some of these characters (though I will skip those first few issues. I know it is blasphemy but I never liked the first ... five to seven issues of Sandman). Books of Magic (even though I didn't have time to get to the original series) is a definite buy regardless.

I've actually wanted to buy a squatty potty for some time.  Grin

Yes this may seem, at first, a little gross, but as the book says, we all do it and so I finally tried that Unicorn Gold toilet spray! All I can say is not only does it work, thankfully  Grin, but that they also have the best commercial I have seen. Check it out HERE and then run, don't walk, to Amazon (okay, click ... no walking or running required) and try it, if you haven't already.

The vanilla one is great
(And yes, I know tis thing has been out for "like ever", but I am late)

I donít know Perry, Iím not digging this Loki/Doctor Strange stuff.  Are you sure this gets good?

Ha, Man I loved it. It was good from early on for me, so if you are not digging it by now (and I am stunned by that) you are not going to enjoy it. Especially because you only have one more issue now, but I wouldn't waste time if you are not having fun

Sorry it isn't hitting for you, or Jimmy, but I absolutely loved it. And it wasn't a "I like Loki so I like this" situation either  Cheesy I thought it was funny (the Ghost Dog still kills me), smart (how Steven battled back) and very, very enjoyable. In fact, I became a huge Cates fan after ... no DURING the reading of that run. This along with his Rednecks and Baby Teeth titles were just kicking at the right time for me.

Now Dr. Strange Damnation, THAT arc (Title Event), I could easily understand not enjoying. I know for a fact that it was not the best rated run, even though I had great fun with it. I even remember saying in the Weekly Readers that I know that most people will not like it  Cheesy It was ... really out there (not "out there" like crazy stuff, but "out there" in comic booky), but still, I had fun reading it even though it was not as good (or great  Wink) as this arc you are on. I know you won't like that if you are not liking this.
But as you are aware, and for the same reason I am now dropping Oblivion Song after issue #6, some titles just don't hit. It happens, but still ... sad it didn't do it for ya.
(of course me and my anal attitude will now have me check reviews to go see if it was panned by most everyone or just me enjoying it all along  Cheesy Cheesy)

EDIT - Okay, I checked the "user" reviews (I like/trust them more than the critics most times) over at COMIC BOOK ROUNDUP(yes, I had to  Cheesy) and I am sorry it didn't hit, but at least I wasn't alone in the enjoyment of it (with all the drugs I have to take, you two had me scared I remembered the darn thing differently  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy) but okay *whew* it wasn't JUST me  Cheesy

And that is not a knock by the way. I don't enjoy or even hate many a "great" or beloved title, so I am not ragging on you guys for not digging it. Again, it happens to the best of us and the best titles.

Season 5 just wrapped up...i have no idea if this will be renewed again (hope so) but the season finally was probably one of the best wrap up/resolution to the current storyline that if it does not come back, i am satisfied thou curious as to what wll happen/what they will encounter next.
