Star Trek The Next Generation: Through the Mirror 1-5 - That was fun.  Love the Mirror Universe stories and watching the Next Gen doppelgangers square off with our universe's crew was pretty cool.

BSG vs BSG 1-6 - Another fun double's story with the original BSG cast teaming up with the current BSG cast.  For BSG fans like me it was fun.  Starbuck meeting Starbuck?  Oh yeah - sparks fly.   Cheesy

Echo Vol 1: Moon Lake - Terry Moore had me at super powered metal boobs.  Funny and fun series.  So far this has met my expectations which are pretty high after coming of Strangers in Paradise.  Going to be a blast to read.

Damn, I thought you were getting this back when I was getting the floppies? So Rachel Rising was your first Terry Moore that you picked up monthly?

Yep Rachel Rising took my virginity...in regards to Terry Moore monthly books.  😁

I'm sure we talked about how I was going to read it.  It's been sitting in my to read pile for over a year and I'm finally getting to it.  I remember you telling me you like it.

Oh man don't even get me started on that.  I have a ton of HC's on my bookshelf still in the shrink wrap.  Including Frank Miller's Big Damn Sin City book!

Not to mention all the comics in my ComiXolgy library.

Wonder Woman 57 - Much better issue for this story.  I actually enjoyed it.  Still glad next issue of JLD is the last part of this cross over.

Action Comics 1004 - Meh, not digging this as much as Superman.  I'm going to drop.

The Terrifics 9 - Man this comic is weird.  And yet, I'm still drawn to it.

Just want to make sure you know that it isn't "exactly" the next issue of JLD that the story concludes in, but a special, reverse named title like the first part, but this time instead of it being Wonder Woman/Justice League Dark #1 it will be Justice League Dark/Wonder Woman #1.
Just want to make sure you knew, although you may have known already  Cool , but it is kinda silly but anyway they can get a couple more issues/dollars from us by having stories start/conclude elsewhere ...

 Cheesy
Feel exactly the opposite. Liking Action so much more.

Oh that's right.  I did know that but forgot.  At least THAT issue is the last one!   Cheesy

Ha!  Too be completely honest, I'm likely to drop Superman too once this arc is done.

Just trying to keep the DC list down to comics I'm pumped about since they're full price.

The Sixth Gun TPB Vol 6: Ghost Dance - Good progression of the main story.  Added two more members to the cast as well that are interesting.  Two thumbs up!

Okay, I haven't read ... well, I have hardly read a thing (let me put it that way). However, I am hoping that if I post this infinitesimal amount that I HAVE read, it will motivate me.
 Cheesy

Wildcats #4 - The finish of Jim Lee's original mini series. Not at all the best written, but much better than ...
Stormwatch #1
Stormwatch #2
- Holy crap this has some of the worst writing I have seen. It is bad folks. Capital B, capital A, capital K bad  Wink Plus art work that, like a lot of early 90's, has costumes, uniforms, weapons and backgrounds changing from panel to freaking panel (see early images of the character Battalion's head gear for just one small example) and you wonder how they ever made it to issue 12. Yes, even back then. How could people sanction this atrocity? I don't care how much you love a creator or publisher, shit is shit, people.
It is no wonder I walked away from comics during this time. In-fact, I am going to go back through the boxes at my parents house and and throw away any comic that has a date of 1993 to 1996 right out the window ... right after I read them of course  Grin Grin Grin. Starting with Stormwatch #1 and #2.
(Okay, I will donate them to the library here instead, even though tossing them out would do the world a service)

I am going to still try and muddle through this series as I do have such a love for the Wildstorm Universe, or at least a love for what is to come, and I have always wanted to read the early stuff ... for some damn reason. I guess to get a better background picture in my head of the early years of said universe, but this is going to be a chore. Man the writing is hard to get through. Add in some of the most ridiculous costumes (and names) and yeah ... wow, this is gonna be hard!

Can you believe that Comixology is selling the first 12 of this series for $2 an issue?  Cheesy Cheesy I wouldn't pay 10 and issue for this.

One thing, I do think I already gave away all the Rob Liefeld stuff and that sucks. I kinda want to go back and read the early Youngblood/Bloodstrike/Supreme stuff for some reason too (only after seeing Youngblood in issue #3 of Wildcats).

What the hell is wrong with me? I mean really?
