I didn't get to all of my Marvel Unlimited stuff last week.  Went to an awesome hockey game instead.   Grin

X-Force #7 - Domino IS X-Force!   Grin  Interesting Domino solo story.  Definitely drew me in with the cliffhanger page.

X-Men #6 - Still the best "X" title.  Each issue is like a little window into different parts of the new world.  This month's focus on Mystique was really good.  How long can this paradise last?  The cracks are already starting.

Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1 - Good tribute to Alfred.  Will be interesting to see how this continues to impact the dynamic of the Bat Family.  And thank goodness I'm not reading Nightwing right now.  "Ric" Grayson?  Really?

20XX #2 - Good issue.  The tension builds as Meria learns more about her new "normal" and she's in for a world of hurt.

So last night I was trying to catch up on some Immortal Hulk and when I got to issue #25 ... I just thought WHAT IN THE HELL AM I READING?
Or I should say what was I trying to read?
Man, it may have been because I was tired, it was late, sure, that could be it. Maybe I just was not into a deep read at that moment? That could also be true. Heck, maybe it was all of those factors? That could just as easily be. But man, I felt as dumb as I could possibly feel trying to read that issue

Will give it another go under the light of the sun and see what happens, but confused does not come close to what I was/am feeling.

Any help on that?

Darn, I thought MU would be there by now as issue 31 came out this last week or the one prior. Must have skipped and went twice a month on me.
Almost tempted to wait to read the rest until you can catch up, but ... eh ... I will try to figure it out by readiong whats next. haha

Ascender #8 - Good story progression.  This is almost Saga-like with the world being soooo different from what it was in Descender.

Psi-Lords #8 - Well that's the end.  For now at least.  I enjoyed the story.  Not sure I will follow the next mini series, whenever it comes out, but I liked this well enough. 

Bloodshot #5 - I like the art in this book.  This new direction for Bloodshot is also pretty interesting.  And the battle in this one is looking pretty cool.

Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy #2 - LOVE IT!  It's just like Black Hammer used to be.  This is basically the origin of Skeleton Boy and there is quite a bit going on.  Think Punisher with a side kick in Gotham City.  And it's awesome.

Undiscovered Country #3 - Alllll right!!!  Now we're starting to get into it and it's got a topic that I LOVE in comics!  This is turning into one of those that I can't wait for!

Psi-Lords #8 - Well that's the end. 


Sales must have been pretty bad. This was suppose to be an ongoing that was going to tie into all the Valiant Universe. I saw an interview with Van Lente way back where he talked about that upcoming in future issues. I didn't enjoy it, but always hate to see a title end before its time

Think Punisher with a side kick in Gotham City. 

Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy #1  ... Great beginning, sorta like a ... and no spoiler tag as it was in the previews, but look away if you want to go in completely clean ... "What If Punisher found Bruce right after his parents were shot". Plus the art style fits and that makes me happy. Looks like the Hammer Universe is back baby ... and away from DC!!!!

Yep. Great minds and all  Grin
Of course it isn't a hard line to connect, BUT DON"T RUIN MY JOY!!!

ADD:  Harrow County Vol. 6: Hedge Magic (Collects issues 21-24)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Harrow County Vol. 6: Hedge Magic (Collects issues 21-24) - Ok, I couldn't wait and I had the extra time.  Grin
This was good also.  Setting things up for what I imagine will be the final battle.  Vol 5 is still my favorite of the series but this was a pretty good setup for things to come.  My only complaint:
Lovey appearing at the end to stop the girls from fighting was too convenient.  The conflict had really built up and then poof - everything's fine.
  But even with that, the Vol as a whole I found compelling.

Okay, Jeff, okay. I will try and get to some more Harrow County.
 Grin Grin Grin
Darn it. Making it sound all good and all!!

Not a lot this week, and probably not a lot of new stuff next week either as Jeff has just twisted my darn arm into reading more Harrow  Wink Grin, but I will try

 Smiley

Star Trek Year Five Valentines Day Special - Don't know why I got this, guess I was missing Trek and felt ...lovey dovey  Cheesy An okay story about Kirk and one of his MANY women!  Grin

Dr. Strange Surgeon Supreme #1
Dr. Strange Surgeon Supreme #2
Dr. Strange Surgeon Supreme #3
- Kev Walker's art is great for this title. Really good start all around.
Immortal Hulk #24
Immortal Hulk #25
- HOLY HELL. So confusing!! I was tried, sure, but I just skipped this and gonna try again later!
Immortal Hulk #26
Immortal Hulk #27
Immortal Hulk #28
- But then again, maybe not, I think I am fine going from #26 on  Grin
Savage Avengers #8 - Can't explain it, but I both chocked and happy this is still a thing!
Spirits of Ghost Rider: Mother of Demons #1 - A pretty cool story featuring Lilith. We also get to see a new "Spirit of ..." character by way of someone being turned. That is kinda cool and I hope to see more, somehow, I just hope they don't over do it and have 30 different versions.

EDIT - Oops ... forgot
X-Men/FF #1 - Sort of continues from Hickman's issue one of X-Men. Discussing if Franklin will go with the mutants or stay with the family
