Shadowman 1
Shadowman 2
Shadowman 3

Let me know about this one if you could. I didn't even try this time around. I could be missing something though

Death or Glory 1
Death or Glory 2

Was really impressed with this, but don't know if that was because it was SOOO good, or I half expected not to like it at all, so when I did like it, it felt like I liked it a lot
 Grin

Kill or Be Killed 19
Kill or Be Killed 20

Ended perfectly in my eyes.

Almost got spoiled on this.  I was listening to iFanboy Pick of the Week last night and I literally RIPPED THE HEADPHONES FROM MY EARS when I heard them start talking about issue 20.  I missed spoilers thankfully what I did hear sounded like they didn't like the ending?  Not sure b/c I didn't listen to the details.  I am looking forward to it though and will try to read it today despite it not being at the top of my list.

Don't worry, you will (should) like the ending ... maybe?

Was finally able to read Lemire's newest. I could have sworn it was an ongoing, but it appears to be only a 6 issue mini. At first I was saddened by that, but after reading it ... yeah, I'm still sad.
 Grin
It was good, but not as powerful as some of his other first issues, but I think it may need more issues so I can get to know these characters more. Translation, I just want more than six issues.
 Cheesy

Also, on the Image front, this time I grabbed Death Or Glory and Weatherman to take home (I was suppose to read Weatherman the last time I was at the shop but didn't) I keep hearing about this damn Weatherman book, so I have to see what's up with it ... what's that deal. Also was almost physically forced  Cheesy to take home another title that I probably won't even get to for at least 5 months
 Cheesy

Certainly not getting through this entire list as it is already Friday, I have a total of one book (and a 12 pager) read so far and I can tell this is going to be a hell of a week, but this is the goal -

Batman #47
Batman #48
Batman #49
Batman #50
Man of Steel #3
Man of Steel #4
Man of Steel #5
Man of Steel #6

Death of the Inhumans #1 (Donny Cates)
Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 (Donny Cates)
Dr. Strange #1
Dr. Strange #2
Dr. Strange #3  ... I KNOW!!! I haven't yet read the new title starring one of my favorite (top five) characters #%*@&$#

Weatherman #1
Death or Glory #3
Black Hammer: The Quantum Age/Overwatch FCBD issue  Wink
Quantum Age #1
Harbinger Wars II #1
Harbinger Wars II #2
X-O Manowar #16
The Realm #6
The Realm #7
John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction: The Standoff #1  Roll Eyes
(okay that eye-roll is not fair, just because I never heard of the publisher doesn't mean it has to be like a Dabel-Brothers published book. Taking a popular name or property, licensed and then pushed to sell the title instead of having an actual story in mind ... all while containing mostly uninspired art and blandish dialog)
 Shocked
OH NO HE DIDN'T!!!!!
 Cheesy
So yeah, I will give it its fair shake. IF I get to it.

Thanks to a power outage this morning, I was able to get a few issues in. Had the power not came back, I could've knocked this damn thing out!!!
 Cheesy

The Realm #6
The Realm #7
- Was honestly gonna drop this after #7, can't now. Man this is getting interesting. Slow burn, getting better
Weatherman #1 - Had a powerful moment, but I don't think this title is ... well ... the end was cool, but I don't see why everyone was all over this. Maybe I just missed something? May hang for the rule of 3 though ... maybe, but art is kinda hectic (though hey, still very cool) and just not sure I am into that right now, at this time. Not sure what to do, but will see how I feel next time it hits.

Batman #47
Batman #48
Batman #49
Batman #50
- Gonna talk more about this in the Bat Thread
added -
Catwoman #1 - Had to try this, right? Also will talk about in the associated thread

added
Black Pantner #1
Black Panther #2
- Sure, I just added a comic when I had so many to read already? THIS is why I can't stay caught up
EDIT - ADDED
Marvel 2-IN-1 Annual #1 - Oh, Doom. Poor, poor Victor will never get it
Marvel 2-IN-1 #7 - The eagerness and plan of Ben and Johnny's ... and Doom's fellow traveler revealed!!
Astonishing X-Men #13 - Really starting to like this Rosenberg's writing. Think I'm gonna enjoy his and Land's run, even though not a huge fan of the team itself (Havok, Dazzler, Beast, Colossus and Warpath) but really, really dug the last page appearance of
Banshee ... dead Banshee?
and am hyper interested to see WHAT THE HELL this is about
 Shocked

Just from titles of articles, without reading spoilers, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna hate Man of Steel something fierce by the time I read issue 6.

I honestly don't think you will, buddy  Smiley I think you will also like it, and like it pretty well. Could be wrong, but I don't see anything here ... other than perhaps one thing, and please don't read this until after you read the books, but maybe the thing regarding
Jor-El
... that you could possibly "hang a hate hat on". The only reason I say that as I am not a fan of THAT whole ... situation in the first place, but as I didn't read much on it, that could be why.

But getting back to this series, yes, you should enjoy it. Okay, I am sure you could find SOME things that you would do differently, personally, but this book was surely a huge surprise for me and I think it will be for you as well. It is good. Reall good, I think

I hope you do enjoy it. Want to see you have fun with Superman!!
 Smiley

Man your killing it Perry!

Ha! Only because I lost power at the homestead for about 4 hours this past Saturday  Cheesy Got lucky.

Even still, looks like I needed a few more hours of non-power as I didn't quite make it through, but sooo glad I was able to finish Man of Steel  Smiley. Oh well, transfer the rest to this week I suppose.

Man of Steel #5
Man of Steel #6
- Nothing left to say that I didn't say above. I did really enjoy this and I am looking forward to not only Bendis' Action and Supe's, but I am also gonna now pick up Supergirl
 Shocked
Yes, Jimmy, I liked this so much I am also dipping my toes into the female side of "S"  Grin (Although it helps that I really like the new writer Marc Andreyko (other than his Death of Hawkman of course, which was not his finest achievement in my eyes Undecided) and having Kevin Maguire pencilling suuuuuure doesn't make me want to run away)
