===============================

Transmetropolitan #19-24 - Wow.  Jimmy was right.  Once you get started you can't put it down.  Especially this 12 issue arc "Year Two".  And just when story winds to an end you get a twist that makes you realize it's really only just now starting!

Cloak & Dagger 2 - I've only followed Cloak & Dagger slightly - guest shots in other books - but I've always been fascinated by the characters.  I liked this arc.  Fun read.  Makes me think I should pull up the original series from the '70's (or was it 80's?) and read those.

Jessica Jones 3 - Fun book.  I enjoyed this arc and I'm looking forward to the next one with Jessica's baby turned purple!

Superior Octopus 1 - Not a bad first issue.  I'm in.
  
Marvel Knights 20th 1 - Now this was really really good.  A great mystery where none of the heroes and villains know who they are.  Flashes of memory are starting to bring them together but no one knows what to believe or who to trust.  Me likey.

Doctor Strange 7 - I like this arc.  In fact, this whole series has been good.  And the art is good too.

Daredevil 611 -  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  I love it when writers use Stilt-Man.

Venom 6, 7, & 8 - I can't believe I'm loving a Venom comic.  This is really good.  Nice new mystery starting in issue 7 and the cliff hanger of issue 8 is killing me!  Can't wait to see how this plays out.

Marvel 2-In-One 10 - The arc is done. Thankfully.

Marvel 2-In-One 11 - Ben & Mr Fantastic.  Not believing Reeds explanation for letting Ben and Johnny think he was dead.  Im done with this title.

Man, so many things I want to reply on ... lots of "quoting" coming up ....

 Cheesy

Transmetropolitan #19-24 - Wow.  Jimmy was right.  Once you get started you can't put it down.

Nice to know this still holds up. Been years upon years since I opened it. Nice !!!!

Jessica Jones 3 - Fun book.  I enjoyed this arc and I'm looking forward to the next one with Jessica's baby turned purple!

That reminds me. I still have yet to read the last issue. Did you notice that all issues were double sized? I guess this was going to be a 6 issue mini at some point?


Marvel Knights 20th 1 - Now this was really really good.

It really was. It sorta faded for me as it went on however. Not horrible, still a good read, but that first issue ... or two ... was the tops!!!

Doctor Strange 7 - I like this arc.  In fact, this whole series has been good.  And the art is good too.

Yep, yep, yep!

Sweet Tooth Vol. 6: Wild Game - Wow what an ending.  Absolutely great book. 

I look forward to FINALLY getting to this. Lemire has worked his way up the ladder as a favorite writer of mine and I can only imagine how good the book that brought him the most praise can be!!

Criminal 4 - Ricky Lawless story.  He is not well.

I gotta get to this too!!!!

Redneck 19 - Whoa.  The fallout from the wedding is grim.

A couple days ago I saw you posted this and it reminded me I need to get caught up. I got through only one issue last night. Every journey begins with one step  Cheesy

The Wicked + The Divine 43 - What started out as a good series is ending pretty poorly.  Id drop if we werent so close to the end.

Oh that sucks!!!! I loved the first couple issues that I read. I hate to know that it declines so poorly. Of course it may take me another 15 years to finally get to this, but still
 Grin

Bloodshot Rising Spirit 6 - Kind of ready for this to end.  This issue was boring.

You only have one more issue to go! I had to drop it earlier however. Just yucky all around

Marvel 2-In-One 11 ....  Im done with this title.

Yep. Started out being pretty good ... well ... decent, but then it just reads like a current issue of Fantastic Four. NOT GOOD
 Angry

Didn't get through much so far, lots of house stuff.


Star Wars - Age of Rebellion: Jabba The Hutt #1
- So I decided to add all of the "Rebellion" one shots to my reading list and for some reason, picked this one to read first. Its a'ight. nothing special, but I do love this era of the "wars"

Action Comics #1011 - So my idea of dropping Action Comics lasted only a month ... or a week  Angry but I'm happy about that. Really enjoying this Leviathan arc.

Life and Death of Toyo Harada #3 - a nice tension filled issue as the combatants ready to battle
Die!Die!Die #5 - Another title I'm catching up on (love getting about 5 in the queue). Yep, still brutal  Cheesy
Redneck #17 - Not as far along as Jeff, although I guess this marriage is not going well?  Cheesy Yep, time to catch up on this as well.

One more title I am thinking of catching up on is Gideon Falls. I am about 8 issues behind now. I have heard it is very twisty ... good, but mind bendy, so I have been waiting to build up enough issues that my brain will, hopefully, more easily follow what is going on. No way I could have gone month to month from what I hear. I would be lost as hell.

Don't hold your breath that reading it all at once will help your brain.  "Twisty" is a good description of it!!   Grin

(Great series, by the way)

Hmmm.  Getting a lot closer to finishing than I thought I would.

Avengers 9 & 10 - Still not 100% enjoying this but Namor on the war path is good.

Thor 6 - Great ending to the Old Thor story.  Or is it??

Thor 7 - Nice Young Thor story.  Art is better too.

West Coast Avengers 3 - I don't know why I like this because it's really not great.  But I like it!

Fantastic Four 3 - First arc done.  This comic has to get better now right?

Now I see what I did.  I typo'd the 3.  I haven't bought that issue yet.  Should have been 2 all along.  Fixed it on the list above.

Life and Death of Toyo Harada #3 - a nice tension filled issue as the combatants ready to battle


Waiting for that $1 price drop then I'm grabbing this.  LOVED the first two issues (also fun reading them back to back)!
