Jumped ahead and already read Vision but here's my list for this week.

Marvel Unlimited
Vision 5 - Man, I love this book.

"I do not know how to fix ... fix fix fix"
 Grin
So good. And then, in issue 6 ....
Nope, not ruining it for you  Wink
Grin

What gets me is the art. I don't think I would enjoy it in any other title, but it does so well here its crazy.

Comixology
Airboy 1
Airboy 2
Airboy 3
Airboy 4

This is another good one, but for totally different reasons. What a total self-diagnosis by James Robinson. Seriously, Robinson uses this book as a form of therapy/self reflection and you can see it, but it is so well done, even through the jokes you can see the motive so clearly here. There is also a lot of other things you can see so clearly  Cheesy, but it's all part of the healing process I suppose.
A real gem of a mini series, for what it is.
 Cheesy

EDIT - I guess I could've put my list up, huh?
 Wink

Okay from last week (or weeks prior) that I will TRY to get to this week -

Nightwing #3
Nightwing #4
Superman #6
Everafter #1
Flintstones #2
Flintstones #3

Cap (Steve) #4
Invincible Iron Man #12
Invincible Iron Man #13
Old Man Logan #10
Spider-Man #7

And then, this weeks new stuff that my eyes are on but not sure I will try or not (depending on how my Pre-Infinate-Crisis-reading is going)

Spider-Man #8
Old Man Logan #11
All-New X-Men #13
Uncanny Inhumans #13
Night Force #5

Action Comics #963
Super-Woman #2

New Super-Man #3
Detective Comics #940
All-Star Batman #2
Red Hood/Outlaws #2
Hal and the GLC #4
Wonder Woman #6
Deathstroke #2
Doom Patrol #1

Briggs Land #2

And also, if I can find issue #1, I would like to try Animosity. I have heard great things and issue #2 hits today. So maybe that title as well as Black Monday Murders. Hickman's new book, but I am trying to hold out until at least issue #4 because ... well ... Hickman.  Cheesy It is sometimes hard to jump into an issue one of his, wait a month and then try to get back into the confusion. I am hoping I can get in better if I read four issues in a row.

I've got that sitting in my wish list too.  Waiting for the price drop but looking forward to reading it.

Yep. Like the writer, love the artist, enjoy the characters, yet the title was just ... blah!!! It is almost laughable how that book just didn't hit at all for me. Gave up around the same time myself, 4th issue or so.
On the flip side, I just read Invincible IM 12 and 13 and laughed so hard because it was suppose to be funny (well, in parts)

Red Hood/Outlaws #2
Hal and the GLC #4
Wonder Woman #6
Deathstroke #2
Doom Patrol #1

Briggs Land #2

Worried that Doom Patrol may just be too much of a "test" to grab me, But I was tired, so I decided to stop and I will try again later.

My sentiments exactly.  In fact I wanted to quit after issue 3 but just finished them out because they were on my list.

Not sure if I will read anymore tonight but I made a lot of progress this weekend.

Airboy - this just wasn't for me. The graphic parts just distracted from the story too much. In and of itself I can see it might have been good but I couldn't get past the annoying nudity just for shock sake.  Too bad to because I like James Robinsons work.

Big thumbs up on Detective Comics and Hal Jordan.  Two of the best titles I'm reading these days.

Oh damn man, I'm sorry. I didn't think that side of it would bother you as bad as that. It was more outlandish, ridiculous humor placed inside a seriously important time in his life (when he was being all "married" on the outside but running around having drug orgies) so I didn't think it would hit you like that, honestly. I didn't see it as sexual or just for shock value (especially due to the absolute ludicrous nature of ... everything  Grin) but merely Robinsons way of trying to make us laugh with him to help hide the pain of being such an ass to his woman and doubting his usefulness and ability as a writer. The humor in that book, even the overly drawn aspects, goes along with the sadness and gives me a great bio-peek.

I love this mini, but we all can't. Sorry, buddy

Wash it out of your brain.
 Cheesy

Not sure if I will read anymore tonight but I made a lot of progress this weekend.

Well I think this week I may actually make it. (which pretty much kills my chance of doing so  Grin)

I liked it.  I was a little disappointed when I saw..
the demon
...as I was hoping for something more like Criminal but it was still a good start and I plan to read it all the way through.
