Going to stick to just finishing up my list from last week.  I'm on vacation which would make you think I had more time for reading.  But wife and kid are off too which means I have less free time then when I'm working.  That seems so backwards!

ComiXology

Nailbiter Vol 2: Bloody Hands - Collects #6-10
Action Comics Vol 2: Welcome to the Planet - Collecting #963-966 and an introductory tale from JUSTICE LEAGUE #52
Detective Comics Vol 2: The Victim Syndicate - Collects #943-949
Red Hood & the Outlaws Vol 1: Dark Trinity - Collects #1-6
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps 11
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps 12
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps 13

Okay, let's see here ...
IF I can get to the LCS I should be able to get all of these knocked out -

Sacred Creatures #1
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #7

If not, I should be able to at least get these done -

Batman #27 (will this title ever star Batman or just the continued King version of the character?)
Deathstroke #21

Avengers #9
Black Bolt #2
Black Bolt #3

Rapture #2
Motor Girl #7

And that is all I am committing to right now. After the last few weeks I am airing on the side of caution and keeping this list small
 Smiley

EDIT - Forgot all about Bloodshot's Day Off #1 hitting this week. Obviously that is on the list.

Well you need to jump right into Divinity III  Smiley

Heck yeah!
I loved Unity, although I hated the way it ended. Not the story, but the entire ... production(?) ... choice(?).

Of course in hindsight, it was probably more the stick up my butt than what Valiant did.

Great progress though Perry!

May be three more days before I get to them now as I am trying to work on Hal  Cheesy I think they may have to go on next weeks as I just can't imagine this trend, of me reading comics, can continue to Tuesday night.

EDIT - And what did you think of Red Hood? Did you get that at a discount? I found it to be pretty tight considering I had almost no interest in it at all at first. It hooked me in fast, until the art change and now I can't run away fast enough.

Vol 1 was the first six issues and I really liked it.  Looking forward to the next one.  The digital trade was $12.99, so full price.  But if you divide that by six issues (12.99 / 6 = $2.17) you wind up paying $2.17 per issue.  A slightly better deal than the $2.99 per issue.

Most of the other digital DC trades have 7 or 8 issues in them which really gives you a better bargain as long as you don't care about staying current.

So when does the art change?  What issue?

It changes to ... crap ... BRB
 Grin

EDIT - okay, I'm back.  Grin

Looks like Dexter Soy is back? I couldv'e sworn he was the one I didn't like, but he was the original penciler and inker, so that can't be it. Hmmm, I must have just seen the fill-in issue #7 and thought there was a new artist?

Hell, now I am going to have to go back and look.
 Cheesy

Seems like you don't have to worry too much about art change after all.

Maybe I got use to Rocafort's issue #8 and so when Soy came back his style hit me really bad in comparison?

Hell, man, I have no idea. Buy as long as you enjoy I guess.
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

EDIT 2
Yep, I have no idea what I saw (maybe page two of issue #9 where Artemis' head looks completely squashed and a few more panels that had issues) that I thought Soy had just joined as it didn't look as good as before, but, yep, Soy all the way (mostly)
Damn it, I may have to pick this back up now
DAMN YOU AND YOUR QUESTIONS!!!!

So very cool to see how this all began. Kurt Busiek writes such supered heroes, and crafts such tales of people, and hope, and change, and trying. Always was a favorite writer of mine, and I love being reminded why.
