Well good to know. I do think it is ending, or at least going on hiatus, with issue #25, and honestly I am happy about that. I would rather read a 25 issue series with this kind of story as its focus than one I have no idea when it is ending.

I agree.  Most of the mysteries have been revealed at this point and it would be in danger of recycled plot lines if it goes past 25.

Gonna be a small week for me if this is any indication
 :D

Amazing Spider-Man #800 - A huge book that tied up everything semi-nicely. I do have a couple nitpicks, but overall a decent read that left room for others to go in any direction they may desire. Not like what Bendis did to Brubaker with Daredevil in other words.  :D
"Okay, I just put the hero in jail and his secret identity is blown ... your turn"
 ;D

So yeah ... one book so far. After three days.
 :-\

Moving a little slower but still at a decent pace.  Taking the kid off to camp today so I should have a lot of free reading time this week . Unless the wife decides to assign me a bunch of chores since the kids gone.   :-\

Yeah Iíve found that once you finally get caught up itís a lot easier to stay caught up on Marvel Unlimited.  Itís a good feeling.

Ooohhh, you need to hurry and get to Bloodshot Salvation. So good. Although I did like what the did in USA
going back and using the old Valiant event moniker Deathmate that way

I honestly don't see anything that could make ya mad, yet at least.  ;D I know it will come, but so far ...  ;D

... Unless the wife decides to assign me a bunch of chores since the kids gone.   :-\

Best time to knock out those honey-do's. No distractions.
 :D

It is obvious I am not going to get a lot in this week, but I did get to that Man of Steel at least -

Amazing Spider-Man #800

Books of Magic #3
Books of Magic #4 - Finished this 4 issue mini that leads to the 75 issue series that I will never get through before the new series starts.
No Justice #4 - Okay, well I made it through. I sure as hell hope Justice League will not be like this.
Man of Steel #1 - I am with Jeff, mostly.  ;D I liked it. Maybe not as much as Jeff, but I thought it was well done.
Tales of Legion of Super Heroes #319 - Mon-El finally recovers (thanks to Colossal Boy, Timberwolf and Star Boy) from Lady Memory forcing him to remember the fear of being trapped in the Phantom Zone for a thousand years and just in time to save Shadow Lass and her cousin (whose name I forget) from said Lady Memory and the Persuader. Oh, and Briany works on increasing Dawnstars tracking powers to find the missing Legionnaires. Man these issues were packed with stuff.  :) Again, these older books, while not written with the voice of today in mind, were so much more worth the money. This book alone would be at least 4 issues today.

EDIT - I wrote something about Man of Steel, but then remembered something in DC Nation #1 that made what I was thinking off the mark, so yeah ...
The big thing with Lois and Clark, right now for us readers is WHERE is Lois, not that they are separated, but they are apart and we don't know why. I had wrote about being separated when in-fact we know nothing yet, really.
