Not starting great at all, as far as entertainment in reading. A usual good read for me (Miles' Spider-Man) fell off a cliff over the last few issues. Ugh, not fun. Art is ... not appealing to me either. Yuk

Pretty good progress so far.  Secret Empire is interesting but I feel it could be better.  Maybe that happens as we move forward.  Shining star so far is Detective Comics.  This is my favorite DC comic right now thanks to this Tim Drake story arc.  Really really good.

So much reading, Jeff!! For a week? Yeah, I'm behind, but here is everything I've read as of late. I'm going to do some highlight discussion topics here, but I'm going to do a bigger Unlimited post about deeper specifics. So, here goes!!

Invincible Iron Man 5 & 6 -I think I'm dropping this title. It's not due to typical Bendis stuff (although, it was there with Riri just shouting OMG for 4 pages when she was in the Armory and just repeating everything that all the others said). I just don't find this title interesting. I don't care about Riri-still. Well, maybe not 'don't care', but I really don't give 2 figs about what is going on, or where it's going. I'm also just about at my very wit's end with beyond nth degree ultra intelligent people. That I find boring, I think.

Iron Fist 1 & 2 - I'm interested enough in this title; enjoying the reading of it!

Ultimates2 5- Hee hee...loving this cosmic stuff!!

Unworthy Thor 5- love, so, much, Thor!!! The very best thing Marvel publishes. Period.

Hulk 4 - So, this book is trying my patience to the very end. This issue was very much just exactly the same as the last issue, without moving any set pieces forward, nor making me feel anymore about Jen's loss. Do something with this title. This isn't pacing. This is dragging it out.

Captain America Steve Rogers 14 & 15 & 16, Secret Empire 0 - Speaking of dragging it out... This will take a bit longer discussion in another thread

Gamora 4 -still enjoying very much!

X-men Prime 1, Blue 1, and Gold 1 - more to discuss later

Weapon X 1 - Hmm...interested...more to come

Thanos 5
Infamous Iron man 6

Spider-woman 17 -WHAT, THE LAST DAMNED ISSUE?! DAMMIT!!!

Old Man Logan 20 & 21 - This past lives stuff? Not very interesting. When the character utterly reveals to himself that his choices were stupid and wrong AFTER EVERYONE TOLD HIM THAT THE PRIOR 2 ISSUES I can't help but feel that it's just stupid of me to keep reading.

Bullseye 3

Uncanny Avengers 22 - What a very good consistent title. Been reading and enjoying this for so very long. I kinda forget when this book was off the rails before, but it's been on, and been on for so long.

Spider-man 15 - A bit too much faked melodrama from Bendis here. A little too bit nonsense with people just overeacting and not reacting as well people should. That, and I continue to hate all the dialogue ever written between Miles, Ganke, and Goldballs. It's simply awful. Utterly, and completely.  I don't think I'm dropping this book...but I'm getting close enough to just not caring anymore to follow it.

Kingpin 3 - oh so good!!

Captain America Sam Wilson 21- now this is just disappointing. I was thinking back to when Rick Remender was writing SamCap, and how different this book became under Spencer-and also just...depressing, I guess.

Spider-man 2099 22- oh Marvel just cancel this book sooner than later and end the misery that is this title. (I know it's been cancelled, but man, I hope it comes soon enough on Unlimited! (dammitk just checked 3 more issues!

Power Man & Iron Fist 15 -aw man, it ended. It had to end. Still sad it did. Glad to see Walker continuing on with more Luke Cage writing though!!

Amazing Spider-man 26 - I can say I read it. That's about the height of opinion I have about it.

Venom 6 - I decided to try a 'new' book to me. Ugh. Just kill Venom off. No Carnage. No Anti-Venom. All this stuff is just trash and feeding fanboys desire for more 'kewl' Venom junk. Just awful.

USAvengers 5 - I suspect this book becomes a tremendous casualty of the mega crossover Secret Empire. The book I loved so much at issue 1 is damn near unrecognizable here at ish 5.

Dr. Strange 19 -what is this book even doing anymore? I understand Aaron /Bachalo are done next issue, but man, my interest is also done with the title.

Totally Awesome Hulk 18 -nope, I am done with this title. There is no interest being generated anymore at seeing Cho explore his Hulk, or fear his Hulk side. It's so currently blah I can't even get ire up to say how much I don't like it. See ya dude.

Daredevil 19 - okay, good to see some more going on. The story of the mindwipe was still too long in coming, I think, but I'm enjoying the ride of reading it still.

I can't remember my DC title numbers, but I read in the last 3 weeks:

Action Comics (Oz Effect part 3)
Superman 32 (Deathstroke part 2 fill in story)
Super Sons ...8? 9? Last part of Planet of the Capes. Glad to see Jon take his moment!
Wonder Woman 32- A pretty decent tale being told. Action and personable moments included; but it is a bit weird to see Trevor's 'Commando' team just be the movie buddies brought up to current times.
Deathstroke 22 -of course I read this. I got to reread all this!! It's going to be so good in a solid steady reading!!
Hal Jordan & GLC 31 - Kinda....not...great here, I'll say that.

Also, Classic titles reading:

Wolverine (2010) 1-9 - Jason Aaron comes on, and like I feared, much of what was kind of cleaned way from Logan is made integral again. (His guilt at his past, his fear of it coming forward, the weight of the life he's led weighing him down-all was made to be revelatory things to Logan, and dealt with in Wolverine: Origins. And now it's back, 5 months later in a new #1. OH well.... Sad  ). This is the arc/title that started off with Logan in Hell, and someone else controlling his body. So far, been very slow in building up to ...good reading. Very slow.

Deadpool 27 - 49 - Okay, I understand why Daniel Way doesn't write comics anymore, and also why DP fans hated his run. This is junk. And it shows. It's not even overly ridiculous (well, yes it is), but it's just crude in trying to ape Jeph Loeb stuff, it's pathetic in trying to be like Joe Kelly stuff, and it's nowhere introspective or well meaning to the character like Fabian's work was. This is just trash. The year is 2012, by the way, in publishing of this volume. The new volume #1 of Duggan and comedian Brian Posehn also comes out this year. Deadpool Team up just finished the year before, and I can't recall when all the other volumes out there start to get added in. My reading of trying to follow the 'main' DP title may be coming to an end. I'm beginning to believe it's not out there anymore.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention

DC METAL #3-I'll be talking about that at length in the thread!

I didnt enjoy this Aaron run as much as his Wolverine: Origins run.  In fact I really disliked the Hell story.
