Well you only have 6 more issues of Unfollow to read through as it is ending at #18. That will clear more time  Undecided

Marvel Unlimited reading:

Thunderbolts #1 -eh, I'll read issue 2, but this is a 90's comic in writing all the way. And the little emoji Picachu girl doesn't help this title at all.
International Iron Man #2 -I read it. Didn't hate it, but Tony acted like an utter moron and idiot in the final 2 pages
Squadron Supreme #6-I keep waiting for the really awesome moment of the issue at the last page. Then, I don't find it, so it must be in the beginning of the next issue! (then, go back and read my sentence from the beginning, and that's the problem I have with the Squadron).
Star Wars #18-still a good book and read. Although, the Aphra/Sana yelling dialogue was highly annoying and silly, I thought.
Spider-woman #6-some kind of super-Spider-women crossover thing. Skipped it, skipping this, and the next issue as well. Didn't like what I had even read anyways.
All-New Wolverine #7-I was rather 'meh' on this book, but Squirrel-girl gave something to Laura that the book needed-heart. Really brought me in with that. I'm back.

DC comics:
Green Arrow #12-s'okay. Kind of feel like a tune that's been played before, but the ending has me going 'lets see where this goes!'
Superman #12-Frankenstein!! A good start, and a cool guest star Grin
Death of Hawkman #3-I'm paying for the price of Hawkman, is what I'm doing.
Deathstroke #8-so much love!!! Can't wait to see all of Slade's full manipulations!!

Oh man!  Was that the plan all along or is it a victim of sales?

Yep, and that Malin art isn't helping it not feel that way. Stopped reading after about 2 pages.

International Iron Man #2 -I read it. Didn't hate it ...

Hey, progress!?!?!  Cheesy Wink I think anytime you can finish a Bendis book and not want to throw it into a fire, I think that is a good Bendis book for you.
 Grin

Squadron Supreme #6-I keep waiting for the really awesome moment of the issue at the last page. Then, I don't find it, so it must be in the beginning of the next issue! (then, go back and read my sentence from the beginning, and that's the problem I have with the Squadron).

I just love it, then hate it, then, like you, just ... yeah ...
And some of the dialog just kills me at times. It is ending at issue #15, sooo

Star Wars #18-still a good book and read. Although, the Aphra/Sana yelling dialogue was highly annoying and silly, I thought.

Not reading this as I wanted to build up my issues (seems like I am saying that for more and more books lately Angry Undecided), but I hope you are still an Aprha fan, or at least give her solo book a shot. Though it may end up being more of the same that you just mentioned (not sure as, again, I haven't read this issue of course), but I hope not.
 Cheesy

Spider-woman #6-some kind of super-Spider-women crossover thing. Skipped it,

This and when I heard about the new artist coming on some time after this crossover, is when I jumped the title. I am sure it still had/has merit, but I just needed to start dropping stuff and it was another victim

All-New Wolverine #7-I was rather 'meh' on this book, but Squirrel-girl gave something to Laura that the book needed-heart. Really brought me in with that. I'm back.

Another book for me, like "All-New X-Men" that, while decent, just seems to be waiting for the relaunch here in a few months. Even though I think they said this title will remain untouched, it did, at times, feel like it was waiting on something before it could really let go. I have enjoyed this as well though.

Death of Hawkman #3-I'm paying for the price of Hawkman, is what I'm doing.

That is exactly what you are doing  Grin Cheesy At least you're self aware, buddy  Smiley

Deathstroke #8-so much love!!! Can't wait to see all of Slade's full manipulations!!

I have about 4 issues to read (again, stock piling issues) and can't wait to get all in that Priest!!
(Wow, isn't it usually the other way around?)
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Yeah, okay ...  Roll Eyes

EDIT -

Oh man!  Was that the plan all along or is it a victim of sales?

I know it was the plan, don't know it was planned this early. I think we all expected the "Y the Last Man" or "Scalped" 60 issue "maxi" instead of an 18 issue super limited, but as I learned with Omega Men and Vision recently, as long as it is good and satisfying, the issue count won't matter.

Surprised you got through all that Obi book. That was not an easy task I bet. I only say as I stopped after issue one or two. Maybe it got more enticing?

But wasn't Divinity II fun? And number 3 is starting off right where that left off!!!!

I read the Obi mini in one sitting.  I want to say it got better but while I didn't hate it, the dialog was sub par at best. You didn't miss anything by dropping out.

Now Divinity II on the other hand was as good as the first. Definitely saw the not so subtle setup for Divinity III and can't wait for it.  What great characters and great use of them in stories!

Okay, didn't make a list this week (will do so for next), but here is what I have been able to get through. Not much

All-Star Batman #6
JL vs Suicide #4
JLA: Vixen #1

All-New Wolverine #16
Great Lake Avengers #4
Hawkeye #2
Moon Knight #10
Occupy Avengers #3

- Really cool book. This I am going to keep up with I think.

Also in the process of reading
Back Issue #53 - Spotlight on Thor, New Gods, Eternals, Hercules, etc ..
Man I love these Back Issues, but they do take up some time. Doesn't help I keep falling asleep reading them
