Royals 6

Didn't enjoy this as much as I could have had the art been just a little bit, just a small particle, better

Black Bolt 5

This was/is good. Ends at #12 so if you enjoy hang on, if not, jump now  ;D

Thanos 10

This was good (it is Lemire so that is almost a given for me), but just wait until #13 when Donny Cates starts writing. So good

Bloodshot Salvation 3
Bloodshot Salvation 4

So glad I caught up on this series. It drags a tad here and there (only so much as 8 issues could have been 7 issues, but again, Jeff Lemire doing his 'thang'

The Wicked + The Divine TPB Vol 2

Didn't think you would dig this title. I really like it but for some reason, and not the 'obvious' one some may think, I just didn't think you would like it.
Of course I say that only having read the first 4 issues myself  ;D Another one of those Image titles that I enjoyed the first few issue so much that I "gotta catch 'em all" to read in a large chunk one day, but wonder when that day will ever arrive.
 :D
So far all my Brian K. Vaughan, Jeff Lemire, Hickman and Remender titles (ya know, all the writers I really, really enjoy) are books I have just waiting for my eyes to gaze upon their greatness. Not to mention many other Image titles I want to read.
 :-[ :-[

As for my reading so far this week (and it may be all I read as this kitchen remodel is kicking my ass!!!!) -

Dr. Strange Damnation #2
Dr. Strange #387 - Yes, yes, some are railing against this, but I am enjoying the heck out of this. Good Strange arc.
Punisher Platoon #1 - A good beginning to the 6 issue mini, but maybe too much military jargon for some? Maybe?
Avengers #684 - Oh and I thought Jimmy would hate this book before?!?! His head may explode if he reads this.  :D :D ;) I am not a fan, per se, but I like where it is heading ...
with a Hulk horror title

Still not sure if I like it or not after the first trade so I figured Id go ahead and try the second volume.

It helps if you have a knowledge of various religions of the past and their "Gods", as some of the names here, well, the stuff goes pretty deep into lore and for me, it was easier to enjoy when I knew the "character" already, IE how this "God" will react or act to situations based on what they are "the God of" ... If you get me.
 ;D
I love me some myth, but I still had to look up most of these characters as some of them are pretty, I don't want to say obscure, so I will just say they were not known to me, originally.
 ;D
It is pretty easy to guess how Bacchus would react to certain things for example  :D
