Okay, like Jeff I'm gonna try and be a little more reasonable with my lists. Just kept overburdening myself and started to get the feeling of reading comics is like going back to school. Read, read, read, study, write, read, read.
 Grin

So here is what I am going to read this week, with comics that came out previously marked with a "*"
Additional comics to maybe come.  Grin

Batman #14*
Batman #15
JLA: The Ray #1
JL vs Suicide #5
The Kamandi Challenge #1 - This is just the "Special". Ooops. #1 comes out next week it seems

Amazing Spider-Man #23
Clone Conspiracy #4
Monsters Unleashed #1 (have to try)
Squadron Supreme #15 (last issue)

Divinity III: Aricic - Son of the Revolution
Kill or Be Killed #5
Mayday #3
Motor Girl #2
Ninjak #23*
Black Hammer Annual #1

So that's it. Only 14 comics that I am going to try and read ... no ... change that, I mean that I want to read this week. I still have tons of DC stuff that I am behind on, an unwanted effect of bi-monthly shipping combined with lack of time, but someday ... yes, someday.
Hope to get through more, but tired of not coming close to completing the list and I can always add later.
 Grin

How about you guys? What are you going to read this week?

I ....was thrown! I'm still trying to digest it-for what it means. Why do it that way? Why have that occur like that? What a break in the story! Got #4 next to me now to read ASAP.

I know!! However I was kinda mad I got "semi-spoiled" by Landis before reading it. And by "semi-spoiled" I had read an article where he said there is a twist to the story, so for every issue I read I was expecting something, so I would have liked to have been more ... surprised? I guess. Even though I was  Cheesy

People just don't get how saying ANYTHING about a story can easily spoil something. I had an exchange (completely friendly  Cheesy) with a podcast guy I listen to as he was talking about some movie or show because he said -
"No spoilers, but wait until you see what happens in the phone booth scene"
So I was expressing to him that THAT is a spoiler because now people (or maybe just me) will know when that scene comes up, something will happen. Am I wrong with that?
 Cheesy
Don't get me wrong, I am sure ... I know I do it all the time.  Angry Cheesy

Anyway, that is why I was a little sad (more than mad) that I read what Landis had said as I would have loved to have had no knowledge of anything (much like my wife states  Cheesy) just so I could have my jaw drop ... well, more than it did that is.

I agree Perry.  Just about anything spoils surprises these days.  I guess its just the world we live in now.

I just love when internet spoilage, met by outrage, is counterargued with 'well, then stay off the internet.'

NO.

'news' sites shouldn't have headlines of "So and so did this in the movie! Wow!" Or "The winner is this guy!"

That attitude (stay off the internet if you don't like it) pisses me off so much.

Amen! It would be different if we were back in the AOL days when only a few were on the net to begin with, but nowadays everyone is online at all times of the day.

Yahoo's main website was the worst at that at one time.
