The Wild Storm: Michael Cray TPB Vol 1 - (Collecting issues 1-6)

Man I am interested to see if you can get past that art. It is a very cool "Alternate Earth" story, which kinda confused me at first as I thought the Wildstorm Universe was still in the DC Universe proper, like after New 52, but it seems that is no longer the case. I don't want to say more than that to avoid any spoilerage
 Grin

Not sure what my list will consist of, one will certainly be a comic that I can't believe I have not read yet, but I think I will start with something like this -

The Dreaming #2
The Dreaming #3
Miracle Man #12 (yeah, I know, I can't believe I haven't read this yet ... but ya got me scared, Jeff  Cheesy

Uncanny X-Men #2
Astonishing X-Men #17

Other than those 5 ... who knows?

And yes, Happy Turkey Day All

Wrong thread before!!

Yeah, I can't get behind Bendis on either title. I hate that Zoogle Rawr guy so damned bad, and his concept, that just drives me crazy. It's just ...not anything I enjoy reading (especially after checking reviews and things I pay attention too).
But whatever! I'm not reading it, so I shouldn't say anything to it!

Nothing like kids with diarrhea and vomiting and baths at 1 am to get some sleeplessness reading done!

The Defenders 9-10 -blech. Obviously phoned in as Bendis was leaving, and Marvel didn't have sales to support keeping the title going with Bendis leaving.

Iron Man 597-599- Still really...okay, actually, I don't 'anything' this title. I don't hate it, I don't love it, I simply read the book and that's it. Still CANNOT STAND making Tony adopted at this point in the character's publication history, but whatever. It's like creating a different reason why Krypon blew up.. (okay, I gotta take one shot. Wink

Thanos 15-18 -oh man, I didn't know that this is where the title ended! So glad I got a chance to read this! Although, that Annual seemed like a bunch of garbage. I couldn't read it...but I did pass out within 5 seconds of putting the tablet down after stopping reading. Grin

Daredevil 601-602- yup, just another book I happen to be reading. That's all it feels like.

Spectacular Spider-man 300 - loolking forward to getting back into this title.

Astonishing X-men 10- okayu, REALLY looking forward to getting back into this title too!!

Skipping Exiles now based on your guys' recommendations.

Luke Cage 170-oh, this was the last issue? At least it was sweet with his daughter Danielle!! Sad

Having a hard time getting back into Dr. Strange and Damnation. I know i won't regret it...just seems like a chore to start? Weird of me.

Oh yeah.  I liked it and the art didn't bother me.  Very cool premise.  As the trade is 6 issues I got to see the death of 3 prominent alter world people who are prominent in the DC proper universe.  And the cliff hanger for the next target definitely makes me want to read the next story!

Sweet!  Cool

Yeah, it hooked me pretty fast, story wise, but throughout its run, I struggled with that art

The Dreaming #2
The Dreaming #3
Miracle Man #12  - Yep, still have not opened this  Shocked Sad Angry

Uncanny X-Men #2
Astonishing X-Men #17 - A nice ending to a short lived X-Title. Hope Uncanny gets to this entertainment value at some point!

Other than those 5 ... who knows?

Ha, yeah, who indeed.  Cheesy

So I got thinking about how much I have enjoyed Action Comics, and that got the fire built up to get caught up on all my Superman stuff. I will say, although I wasn't a fan of the first two issues of Supe's, it did get better for me. Mainly and in no small part because of his conversation with Jon about life and ... haha ... dealing with Batman. Even got finished with the other Supe's related title
 Grin

Wonder Woman #58 - Yes, right back in after saying I was cutting down DC to concentrate on Marvel. Ha, yeah!
Supergirl #22
Supergirl #23
Supergirl #24
- I think I want to like this more than I do. Love the creative team, but ... Maybe WW takes this spot?
Superman #2 - read again to get a refresher
Superman #3
Superman #4
Superman #5
- Gotta say, not as good as Action, but much better than it started. Need to go research this Jax-Ur guy. Jimmy, you know of the story with this guy? It says he tried to destroy Krypton's moon?

Ninjak #13 - A decent issue. Loved the battle Smiley
Black Hammer: Age of Doom #7 - Wow, I can't express how much this issue let me down. Did not enjoy this issue at all. They can't all be winners, even though most of them are, but ewwwww ... not this one

From what I remember, he's always been Krypton's greatest mass murderers and or terrorist. Blowing up the moon sounds right

Ahhhm Okay. I was hoping that you would remember reading about that particular story. Just didn't know if it was a Golden/Silver Age thing or a more recent story. I did enough research (looked up his name on Wikipedia  Grin) to see he was created in 1961, but I will have to dig further if you don't remember that particular story being a more recent one.
 Cool
But don't feel obligated. I will get to it one day.
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Knocked out quite a bit this week so far (not more of what I had planned of course), but I was in bed for a loooong time the last couple of days so had a lot of time to do just that. Not sure I will get anymore done tonight.

Doctor Strange #4
Doctor Strange #5
Doctor Strange #6
Doctor Strange #7
Doctor Strange #8
- an "okay" story arc that turned out to have a pretty interesting last couple of issues. Pretty good.

Justice League Dark #5 - Oh that last page has me excited for issue #6

Die!Die!Die! #4 - Good! Really good. Like the Boys (well, early Boys issues), but crazier? what? Yep! Crazier
Redneck #16 - Fell into the "I can't remember what happened" trap with this, but still enjoyed it. Need refresher
Wildcats #5
Wildcats #6
Wildcats #7
- Can't wait to get to the better stuff.
StormWatch #5
StormWatch #6
= Not good at all. Hope to get to good stuff soon. Doubtful, but at least Backlash is here now
A Walk Through Hell #1 - Re-read to get refresher
A Walk Through Hell #2
A Walk Through Hell #3
A Walk Through Hell #4
A Walk Through Hell #5
- Holy crap. This got so good and its the end of book one? Luckily the next issues isn't too far away ... a hope. Another good Garth Ennis story. Creepy as hell. Much better once ya get use to the time jumping around. Was a little odd at first not realizing that things happening in this book were at different times. It took me at lest 2 or 3 issues to get that. Once I did, man it got better
 Cheesy Cheesy

Already read ...

Ahhh, okay, cool. The "idea" of it just sounded like a Silver Age kinda thing, but I wasn't sure  Grin

Thanks!

Got through a couple more last night actually. I think I just read the most comics this week that I have ever read. Or at least in quite sometime.
 Cheesy
The art really helped this week.

West Coast Avengers #1
West Coast Avengers #2
West Coast Avengers #3
West Coast Avengers #4
- Pretty good. A little too long an arc for what it was, but I am on board! Loved the art.
Uncanny X-Men #2 -  They were right, ya almost do need to read that Multiple Man mini prior to reading this, more so than issue #1. Felt like a good ole' X-Men comic and again, the art was great!!

Still ... no ...

I went ahead and looked it up. New. And sounds like something right up my alley! Plus first five issues are already collected in trade.

Yep. Looking forward to it, even though I thought the tie-in stuff with that Witching Hour arc couldve been stronger, I still enjoy this team. But honestly, I could do without Langstrom (Manbat) being on the team as they don't seem to use him at all.  Undecided

I saw you already answered this one  Cheesy, but yeah, the first five issues are considered "Book One" and colected so that would be the way to go. But warning... damn does issue #5 end in a cliffhanger.  Cheesy
Also, a little too political at the start, just for a couple panels pages then it settles into the main story. Just letting you know about that ahead of time
 Cheesy
It does move away from that pretty fast.

Miracle Man #12  - Yep, still have not opened this  Shocked Sad Angry

Yeah, I don't know why I haven't read this yet. Partly, as I joked, about your thoughts on it. Partly because of the "it's the last of it" feeling I have with Manhunter  Cheesy and just never got the right feeling in the gut to read it yet. Counting on this week being the week!!
