Casanova TPB Vol 2 Gula - Great second arc. A lot of time spent with all of the secondary characters  as Casanova is missing. Was a lot of fun.

Dark Nights Death Metal: Legends of the Dark Knights #1 (whew! how about a shorter title?)

 :D
At least you got an issue. Hear the speculator demand is crazy because of a "first appearance" thing

Avengers of the Wasteland #1

Man I enjoyed this first issue. However, after that ...  :-\ (Although thinking back, issue #2 may have been good as well. Or issue #3  :D I just know it had one more good issue out of the five :-\)

And Fraction's Casanova title ... love the art and coloring in that thing. Only checked out the first issue of the first two runs, but yeah ... it's on the list
 :D

Was awakened at 2:30 with leg/feet issues so I got a couple in last night ...ummm, this morning  :)

Kill Lock #6 - Man I enjoyed this. Kinda of a cliffhanger ending, kinda ... well very much "open ended", yet closed out nicely. If ya ever want to read a story about four "convict" robots that are locked together with a program (The Kill Lock) that kills them all if even one of the four dies and their mission to rid themselves of said program, this is for you  :D Seriously though, a really good "ending" that leaves me hoping the sales are good enough for another six issue run.

Strange Adventures #3 - Whoa, did Alanna just do that to ... him? Something is up, yeah?
Our Fighting Forces #1 - Another of the Walmart reprints. I grabbed it because it was written by Christopher Priest and it was pretty damn tight, but needed about 3 more pages I feel.

Yeah, it's the first appearance of the Robin King. Story sucks, though.

Giant Size X-Men: Fantomex #1 - Every-time I talk about moving some of the X-titles to MU I come across a great issue like this one.  And then, for fear of missing something, I want to keep getting all the titles as they come!  This one definitely hints to future endeavors, probably in Marauders!

Empyre: X-Men #2 - This was a LOT better than the last issue (and I had no problems with that issue).  In fact I really liked it.  Love seeing Magik in charge as the War Commander.  And the plant ladies from one of the earlier X-Men issues are a fun addition.  Next issue has some awesome reinforcements coming!

I didn't get #2 because #1 sucked. Maybe I'll go back and pick it up.

Comixology has a deal on the first three issues of Tom Talyor's new Injustice digital (HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Injustice-Year-Zero-1-3/bundle/1908)) so of course I had to get that, but also knocked out a couple more -

Strange Adventures #4 - Man, what is up with Alanna?
Injustice: Year Zero #1
Injustice: Year Zero #2
Injustice: Year Zero #3 - Good start.
Five years later, off their trip to a new planet, the remaining heroes get a ...  Nahhh ;) I'm not spoiling it  ;D


Dr. Strange: Surgeon Supreme #6 - NOOOOOO!!!! Last issue?!?!?! Damn it. I loved this damn title!!!!
Screw this crap, I'm out!

Adventureman #2 - the mystery gets bigger as we get a peek at the old HQ.  I知 still pulled in.

DCeased: Dead Planet #2 - Great issue!  Love seeing the Shadowpact in action.

Strange Adventures #4 - MR. Terrific on Rann!  I知 wondering if there really is a conspiracy or is this all a red herring.

Pulp GN by Brubaker & Phillips - Good one shot crime story by Bru & Phillips.  Takes place in the 1920痴 where a pulp writer is actually writing his adventures from the 1890痴 when he lived in the old west.  And as any story from these guys there痴 always more to the story than what you see on the surface.  Thumbs up.

Avengers of the Wasteland #1 - Great first issue!  I hear it doesn稚 hold up but I hope that痴 not true!

Captain Marvel: The End #1 - Not bad.  I enjoyed this for the most part. Kind of a What If? Feel to it.

Doctor Strange: The End #1 - Same here.  Wasn稚 sure about this at the start but had a strong finish.  I liked it.

Rodney went back for more comics!? Getting the bug again my man?
 :)

Spider-Man/Venom (FCBD) - A decent freebie, the short Venom story was cool, setting up issue #26
X-Men (FCBD) - decent X story setup for Swords but had to get the into to Tom Taylor's Marvel event

DCeased: Dead Planet #1 - of course this is the title that had the Cyborg "Spoiler" thing in it. Ha, I read both but hadn't finished this one yet and got all confused  ;D

Ice Cream Man #20 - Can't stop getting this. Don't know why. It is just odd enough to keep me hooked.
The Cimmerian: Red Nail #2 - Loving this publisher's Conan stuff. Fantastic art and great rendition of the Robert E Howard original stories. Now the wait. The seemingly long wait for the next two issue story  :(

Hey guys, just to save you some postage and time, Comixology has the FCBD issue, well, I should say they have the Spider-Man one as well so HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Free-Comic-Book-Day-2020/comics-series/147750?ref=Y29taWMvdmlldy9kZXNrdG9wL2JyZWFkY3J1bWJz) is the link that has both
 :)

EDIT - Unless you want the physical issue instead of course, Jeff.

Right? Not since 80's Thor have I seen him (or that crew) look so cool  :) Still sucks major they canceled this title after 6 issues!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:(

Had some extra time today so I added these:

Immortal Hulk: Great Power #1 - A One shot issue where Spider-Man becomes the Hulk and Bruce has to figure out how to get the power back.  Was a pretty fun story with some good cameo's. Story by Tom Taylor so I should of known it had potential.

Ant-Man #1 - I didn't like this one.  Art is cartoony and the story wasn't very interesting.  I'm out.

Dare Devil #17 - Another good issue.  I'm with Foggy in that Matt is only fooling himself if he thinks he's not Dare Devil anymore.  Good setup for the next arc with all of the mobsters fighting for power.

Darth Vader #1 - Good story!  Picks up right after Empire Strikes Back and Vader is out to find and punish all those who had hidden his son from him.  I actually did not mind seeing that one panel with Jar Jar on it.  Maybe we'll find out what happened to him.

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #7 - Man, I'm so back and forth on this title.  This issue was excellent.  And I'm actually looking forward to next issues "Super Pets" appearance!   :D

Went on a read fest last night as my legs were killing me and I couldn't sleep. Ya know, turning lemons into lemonade an ice cool Shandy  ;D

Aliens: Original Screenplay #1 - Wow, so different than the movie so far as characters, design and tone
Fire Power OGN - The large prologue to Kirkman and Samnee's new Image title. Not needed, but cool
Fire Power #1
Fire Power #2 - Much like Iron Fist (MUCH, but with fireballs  ;D) and with a slight Avatar Air Bender tilt.
Plunge #4
Plunge #5 - Didn't realize I missed issue #4, but glad I noticed prior to issue 5's reveal/situation. Only one issue to go and it feels like it needs two for a proper close. That has me worried a little.
