Marvel Unlimited
Earth Vader #3

Hmmm, I am kinda interested in what that "Earth Vader" comic is about. Surprised I didn't hear about the first two issues. Is it a play on "Invader"? Let us know how it is

X-Men #14 - Good issue. More origins of Arrako.  Itís starting to come together.

Marauders #14 - Another good issue.  I had my doubts at first but the story is moving finally and the last page at last has some action.  Looking forward to how this plays out.

Hey man, just curious, if ... IF DC does go to the 3 months after initial release like Marvel just has, would you then go away from the floppies? Just wondering as from a price point of view, for ... what ... $15 bucks or less a month you can get all the books you like to buy from DC and/or Marvel (plus almost every other book they publish). Just curious if you would make the switch. And if not, is it because you are not a fan of digital reading or is it that you are more a fan of the floppy
 :)
Either is, of course, fine, but again, just curious.
 :)

As for me, I didn't get to the two I wanted to get to (the two X books), but I did knock out a couple:

DCeased #4 - Whoa!! Now that's a bigg'a meat'a'ball ;D
Injustice Year Zero #9 - Kinda, sorta what we read in issue #2  :P
Strange Adventure #6 - Yeah, this is some slow burn reading right 'chere'
Suicide Squad #10 - Couldn't wait. had to read this issue. DAMN IT. Rushed is what this was  :-[
Detective Comics #1029 - I am going to have to do some research (I won't) on whether the Bat has ever shot the pointy ears from his cwol out like rockets, to stick into bad guys to stop them and then, oh boy, and then go over and pluck them out and place them back on top of his head? Man ....

Venom #3 - Yeah, okay, this is going to take over Marvel soon. I mean more than it already has. Knull is the new Thanos, the new "it" baddy. And he is going to permeate the MU and while I hate to say this, I am looking forward to it!! I've never been a Venom fan, but this ... yeah, there is something here for me.
 :)

EDIT - I had wrote DCeased #5 but I had actually read #4 ... I just got #5 a few moments ago
 :)

Batman: Three Jokers #3 - An ok ending but I left feeling a little unsatisfied.  Didnít end as good as the lead up to it was.

Rorschach #1 - I liked this issue.  Interesting mystery starting out.

That Texas Blood #4 - slow moving issue putting all the pieces in place.  I enjoyed the character development.

X-Ray Robot #2 - I love a good time travel story.  This one is shaping up to be a crazy good one.

Rai #8 - Interesting new arc with the new Fusion character.  Intro issue and things will heat up next issue.

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #13 - Odd numbered issue but surprisingly not terrible.  This art is wearing thin on me though.

DCeased: Dead Planet #5 - Not one of the better issues but still ok moving the story along.

Adventureman #4 - Iím too confused by this story.  Not a favorite at this time.  Might read better in trade.

Empyre #3 - getting bored with this story already.

Captain Marvel #18 - Interesting tie-in even if it makes no sense to send her on this mission.

Empyre: Captain America #1 - dialogue isnít good on this one.  Not very interesting either.

Spider-Man Noir #2 - over the top dialogue.  Trying too hard to sound like a Bogart movie.  The issue is saved with this cliff hanger.  I want to see how this villain works in this universe.

Darth Vader #3 - this is interesting since we are getting to find out the fates of Padmeís court that we got to know in the prequels.  Throw this in the like category.

I picked up #22 and #23. It's an interesting story set in the future. I'm thinking about adding this to my pull and dropping WW and Justice League (after Endless Winter).

The Green Lantern #5 & 6 - End of the Blackstar arc.  Excellent.  Iím starting to enjoy Morrison on Green Lantern.

The Green Lantern #7 - single issue story dealing with the results of the finale to the last arc.  Howís that for no spoilers?  Fun epilogue.

The Green Lantern #8 - Another single issue story!  Green Arrow / Green Lantern team-up just like the Ď70ís!  And a trippy Doom Patrol feel to the story.  A fun retro team-up that I enjoyed.

Batman & the Outsiders #6 - End of the first arc.  A little choppy for me since I started when it was first published and am just now catching up.  But I like where itís going.  Looking forward to some Ras Al Gul.

Hawkman #17 - End of the Shadow Thief arc.  Good issue and leads up to what I think is the issue that got Perry hooked, #18.

Supermanís Pal Jimmy Olsen #2 - Not as good as the first issue but not terrible either.

The Terrifics #12 - Good place to jump back in as the team gets back together.  Basic starting point for the next arc.

Flash #80 - an ok issue.  Probably better than Iím giving it credit for because I just donít like the art.  Itís painful to look at.  But Prof Zoom, the Rogues, and the Black Flash.  Canít be all bad right?

Metal Men #1 - Hmmm.  Not sure if I like this yet.  Going to read a couple more issues before I decide.

Empyre #3 - getting bored with this story already

Yep, there was just not enough ... "there" there in that event. Just ... *yawn* ... although something happens that is important to the Hulk universe coming up ... other than that, nah ...  :-\

Spider-Man Noir #2 - over the top dialogue.  Trying too hard to sound like a Bogart movie.

Thank you!! I so wanted to like this mini. I love the Pulp era stuff (Doc Savage is my dude!!!!) and this should have been right in my wheel house, but I found the dialog in the first issue very, very forced and "Trying too hard to sound like a Bogart movie" is exactly the issue I had, but couldn't put my finger on it. 

Hawkman #17 - End of the Shadow Thief arc.  Good issue and leads up to what I think is the issue that got Perry hooked, #18.

Yeah, but I think the shine is going to come off a tad as you and those that started reading the earlier issues and kept going, already know what I found most enjoyable about what I was reading. The new origin if you will. Don't get me wrong, good stuff is coming  :) but take away that origin stuff that I discovered in issue #18 and up and the "HOLY COW" becomes more of a "ATHEIST CALF"  ....(WHAT?!?!)
 :D

Supermanís Pal Jimmy Olsen #2 - Not as good as the first issue but not terrible either.

I appreciate you trying to read this but I think I will be doing you a disservice if I don't say that you really do need to read this with a "collected mentality" or frame of mind. I mean I think ... I THINK ... you will get more out of this particular read of you read at least 3 issues at a time. I know that seems odd, how can reading issues back to back be that much of an improvement on a story, but I honestly don't think the single issue read will give you the same "ooomph". Okay, sure, maybe? But letting too much time pass between each issue kinda lessens the greatness of this.
 :)
And I speak from experience. I know that is what happened to me when I read the first few issues when this first came out. I found the special (or whatever you call that 6 to 8 page preview they had) to be "so, so" if not totally too wacky, and the first couple issues of the main mini just didn't hit for me. But after it was completed I re-started, reading the sneak peak and the next issues back to back, over the next couple days and it blew me away. Especially the way the sneak peak come back into the story. It is vital and had I read the "special" and forgot about what happened, and I would have, I always do, the last few issues of the story would NOT have been as good as it was.

Now yes, you may do what I ask, read them all in clumps and end up with the same feelings you have now or even worse  :D but I know ... well ... I have a real strong feeling that this series will not hit as good just reading issue to issue over weeks apart. I promise you
 :)

Now of course, this is just my opinion, buddy. Not trying to tell you how to read ... as long as you do it the way I say.  :D :D :D
(Just kidding)
 ;D

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

Man, I started off so well but read next to nothing in the last few days
 >:(

The Cimmerian: People of the Black Circle #3 - Sadly, the longest Conan min from Ablaze had to be the one with the art I didn't enjoy as much as I had hoped, but I look forward to the next story, with (hopefully) art that is more in tune with what I like ... art that looks like it should be in Conan and not Manga Conan

DCeased #5 - I am still enjoying this, but I think the property has run its course as I am getting ... ?

Wolverine: Black, White & Red #1 - I wanted to see if I wanted/needed to add this. I can wait.
X-Men #14
Marauders #14 - The shit is about to hit the fan and getting there has been fun. Obviously the ending isn't what we saw, but I am intrigued to see what really happened.
