Where does the time go?  I have not read anything since Jan 3rd.  Still only made it through three comics on my list!

Made it through a couple of collected editions.  Might make it through one more b4 the night is over.

The Sixth Gun TPB Vol 8 Hell and High Water (Collects issues 42-47) - Getting close to the series end and this was the big arc.  I've enjoyed this series and am looking forward to seeing how it ends.

Echo TPB Vol 4 Collider (Collects issues 16-20) -  Another great Terry Moore arc.  His characters are amazing at how they suck you into their lives.  Lots of death in this one.

You didn't comment on the new Bloodshot. I am skipping it, art being the main but not only reason, but how did it hit for you?

Bloodshot Rising Spirit 1 - Bloodshot origin story.  I like the start.

Yeah - that's really all I had to say.  I like how its started out.  I could see it going up or down but for now I like it.  I don't remember the art bothering me.  Why didn't you like it?

Not sure really, it just didn't hit me. Combine that with my lack of enthusiasm for the way Valiant is going as a company and I just feel pushed away.
Now don't get me wrong I do hope I am totally, 100% mistaken and they turn things back around, but actions they have taken with editorial (some of their recent firings/hirings have me worried), they way they have stated they are going to push more on the "video/movie" side of the company and lack of, or perceived lack of, trying to get some well known talent on their books (not a slam at current talent) I just see them going the Dynamite route soon. Publishing 50 variant copies of each of their issues, each month, just to say viable.
 Undecided
Again, I hope I am wrong, but I just don't see Valiant like I used to
 Embarrassed

DUDE!! That 'thang' is good and creepy, yeah? I just kept picturing, days after I read that one issue, that one agent ... ya know ... emptying his clip they way he does yet ... ya know?!?!?!
 Shocked
