King in Black: Thunderbolts #2

Interested to see how good of a job they do with explaining what is going on with the main story and how it ties in. Black Cat did pretty well starting her series in the middle of the battle, during this event, but as this is a mini based ON the event I am wondering if they do as well here. I hope they pull it off as I do kinda want to read this as well
 ;D

Woo-Hoo ... Turn back that old ass head and get ready for some 70's style dialog, my man.  ;D
Of course me being me, with my scattershot brain and all, it will not be too much different than listening to me talk on Polo, just a little more directed  :D :D :D :D
Yeah, you should be able to blend right in

Immortal Hulk #41-43 - Love these Joe Fixit issues.  This series continues to keep you on your toes with inventive storylines, twists, and turns.

Immortal Hulk: Flatline #1 - Decent one shot though nothing you have to read.  Not as good as the main series.

Maestro #1-2 - More Peter David goodness as we learn about the early days of Maestro's rule.  I'm not familiar with the Pantheon so they are all new to me.

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

Moving really fast for day one!  Looks like there's a good chance I'll have time for those Captain Marvel issues!

Iron Man #5 & 6 - Took me a minute to remember where we were on this one but my old brain caught up pretty quick.  Still love Hellcat in this series.  Not digging some of the other cameo's though  (Frog man?  Really?).  Not doubting too much yet but hopefully it continues to be good.

Taskmaster #3 - Still a fun story and Taskmaster is one crazy villain.  Good battles once again and am interested to see how this plays out.

King in Black: Thunderbolts #1 & 2 - Well....hmmmm.  Ok I think I like it but it was a little too slapstick for my taste over all.  I'm still interested in where this is going but hoping for a little less goofiness.

M.O.D.O.K.: Head Games #3 - Perry's right - this was terrible.  Not a good representation of how this series started out.  Now that Gwenpool is gone I hope the next issue goes back to the normal humor.

Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #1-12 - Awesome!  We're now into the magic heroes joining this fight!  Constantine! Deadman! Ragman! The Spectre! Doctor Fate! Zatanna!  Detective Chimp!  All of my favorites are here and more!  Also I think I've figured out the identity twist that is coming and if I'm right....oh boy am I excited for that twist!!

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

Birthright #48 - Winding down the story as the two brothers meet back up after their falling out.  I'm ready for the end of this great series.

Black Hammer: Visions #4 - Very bizarre story but I expect no less when Colonel Weird is at the forefront.  I have no idea where it fits into the storyline but it was a fun strange tale.

Decorum #7 - Still not certain what is going on overall in this story and yet I seem to be enjoying each issue.  There better be a big payoff in the end.   ;D

The Department of Truth #7 - Love these Oswald centric issues.  They are the best ones of the series.

The Department of Truth #8 - Back to the other main character who is as lost as we are as to what the Dept of Truth actually does.  This was a good issue as well.

Fire Power #10 - The start of the big battle between factions.  Ready for some reveals to start happening soon.

Locke & Key/Sandman: Hell & Back #0 - reprints of stories past which I assume is prepping us for the Hell & Back #1 I still need to buy and read.

Ohhh, second week in a row you hit the B.I.bins for some Titans. You going for a complete run or just picking up here and there as you seen some and see how far it goes?

Iron Man #5 & 6 - Took me a minute to remember where we were on this one but my old brain caught up pretty quick.  Still love Hellcat in this series.  Not digging some of the other cameo's though  (Frog man?  Really?)

Right? Frogman? I have to think this is a © and/or a usage thing  :D Can't let the name 'Frogman' go to be picked up by someone else, now can ya?
 :D :D :D
(No idea why else they would use him, unless it is in remembrance of that Team-Up issue he played such a vital roll in)
 ;D

King in Black: Thunderbolts #1 & 2 - Well....hmmmm.  Ok I think I like it but it was a little too slapstick for my taste over all.

Aaaaaand thank you. All I needed to know. Removing from my MU downloads right after this
 :)

M.O.D.O.K.: Head Games #3 - Perry's right - this was terrible.  Not a good representation of how this series started out.  Now that Gwenpool is gone I hope the next issue goes back to the normal humor.

Here, here! Ugh, Hope it didn't ruin a good thing.


Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #1-12 - Awesome!

Okay, okay!! I can take no more. I have to add all these series now.  ;D ;D Ya broke me.
Are they all written by Talyor? I think so ... I hope so.

And now, to get to the reason I started this reply ....

.... Hell & Back #1 I still need to buy and read.

Yeah you do!!!
 :)
But you can ... and perhaps should ... wait until the next and final issue hits. Or at least has a release date. It has been far too long a await for me between issues (about two months and I still don't see a release date for issue #2) and now I will have to read issue #1 again anyway (unless they give us a good recap first page). You may want to do yourself a favor and hold back a bit. Heck, you may be able to get a deal on both

The Annuals have different writers but all of the main issues are Taylor.  It's very much like DCeased.  Meaning that since it is out of continuity anything can..and does..happen to the characters.  Some live, some die, and some are permanently changed.

.... Hell & Back #1 I still need to buy and read.

Yeah you do!!!

Ah yes - I will definitely wait for that then.  Thanks for the heads up.  Otherwise I'd just be re-reading it again also.

Redneck #30 - More history is revealed and the start of the big war in Texas is almost upon us.

Rorschach #8 - Man, feels like I've been reading this for a lot longer than 8 issues.  More is revealed as we get closer to answers as to what is going on.  Or are we?  Oh and...
Frank Miller
...gets arrested!   :D

Snow Angels #4 - Well I guess it had to happen but still sad.  And sets us up for what should be a great fight next issue!
I'm really enjoying this ComiXology only limited series by Jeff Lemire.  But that's probably no surprise there.   ;)

Something is Killing the Children #16 - Yes!  Origin story begins here!  Can't wait to see how Erica fits into these monster hunters!

Strange Adventures #10 - Well, that was possibly the worst kept secret as the big reveal was really no surprise to me.  It's what I figured was going on all along....more or less.

The Witcher: Fading Memories #4 - Fading Memories is a good title for this one as it will fade from memory pretty quickly.  Not as good as the other Witcher stories I've read.

This might be my record - finishing my complete list in 2 days.   :o

Captain Marvel (1973) #25-27 - This was fun.  I had no idea these were the comics where Thanos and Captain Marvel are going to meet for the first time.  Plus "The Destroyer" - who we now know as simply Drax.  Eros and Mentor are in here too as well as Super Skrull.  And a lot of these characters are meeting for the first time.  Just tons of fun for this fanboy.  So glad I jumped onboard this back issue read with Perry.

The Union #1-3 - It's not bad.  I like the story thus far and I'm intrigued even if the main characters haven't caught my interest yet.  Some of the side characters however are intriguing.  I'll stick around for an arc or two and see how this develops.

King in Black: The Marauders #1 - Yuck.  This was junk.  Feel free to skip it.

S.W.O.R.D. #3 - Crossing over into King in Black event.  Sigh.

X-Force #17 - Kid Omega and Phoebe centric.  And really good.  Interesting deep dive into Kid Omega's mind.

Wolverine: Black, White, & Blood #3 - I like the Amiko and Mars stories but didn't care too much for the Cosmic Ghost Rider story.  Probably because of the artist.  JESÚS SAIZ.  Similar to Bachlo.

Marauders #18 - Madripoor and a new group of Reavers.  And a lot of action.  Looks like we're back on the up swing.

X-Men Legends #1 - Did anyone really want to bring the 90's back?  Despite liking the art I decided midway through that I wasn't going to keep reading this.  Then they went and pulled me in with the cliff hanger.  Gotta see how that ends up but doubt I'll stick around for more past issue 2.  But you never know.

Cable #8 - Another decent issue.  Liked seeing Domino and Cable together even if it is this younger version.  And a blood bath to boot.  Nice.

Wolverine #10 - Good wrap up to the visit to Madripoor.  Seems a little inconsistent with the Marauders book but maybe not as much as I think.  Looks like things with Maverick aren't exactly over though....

X-Men #18 - Still the best book of the X-World.  Why can't Hickman just write them all?   ;D  It seems like very few writers can take B-Level characters like Darwin and Synch and make an A-Level story.  Hickman is one of those guys.  Right up there with Peter David.  Throw in X-23 and what sounds like a lousy team becomes a well oiled machine.  With a cliff hanger to make me want more.  Why isn't issue 19 on MU yet?!?

Oh yeah, right on. It's nice to have that option when needed. Further proof Comics are, or can be, a WORTHY investment  :)

So I am SLOWLY picking up pieces and seeing what I can find at a reasonable price.

Sweet. Good luck and hopefully you will soon fill out the series. It is one of those, had I decided to keep any, that would have made the cut
 :)

S.W.O.R.D. #3 - Crossing over into King in Black event.  Sigh.

Wouldn't have mattered
 ;D
Just kidding. I had to bail after 2 issues and have no desire to come back so I didn't have to worry about the crossover obstruction
 ;D

X-Men Legends #1 - Did anyone really want to bring the 90's back?

Ha! Not I, that's for sure  ;D

Cable #8

Oh yeah, THATS the other X book I read. I keep forgetting that one as I know it is essentially done.
 :-\

X-Men ... Why isn't issue 19 on MU yet?!?

It dropped at the end of March. On March 31st actually, so not quite yet 3 months.  :)
Issue #20 just dropped last week though, so expect an even further wait for that one ... I imagine.

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

Tales from the Umbrella Academy: You Look Like Death #1-6 - Pretty disappointed in this one.  Not as good as past Umbrella Academy outings.  It's a solo story starring Seance and takes place around a time before the original series.  Unless your just a purist like myself, no need to pick it up.

Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #13-24
Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three Annual #1
Not as exciting as the first half of this story.  Takes a bit of a side road with a threat outside of the fight between team Superman and team Batman.  Still an ok story but the weakest of the series.

Well, I've done some reading tonight, as well as listing stuff from the past week

It felt nice to just read about AQUAMAN for a while. I don't find Kelly De Connick fascintating in writing, but it just felt good to read about Arthur again from 57-59.

I didn't know SHAZAM was cancelled, and it wasn't showing up on my 'keep reading list', so I went through issues 9-15 to finish it off! I really just want this character to really star, and not be forgotten due to Johns not doing anything with him forever.

(by the way, the DCI app did an update, and its SO MUCH BETTER about adding new books, adding to lists, and not getting lost in circles trying to get to the home page!)

ON Marvel, I did Daredevil 26-27 and it was King in Black tie in nonsense, so I didn't like them.
I read Amazing Spider-man 58-60, and I'm cruising along to follow well in step with the series.

I suppose I should get back to X-men post X of Swords....

YEA!!!!

(by the way, the DCI app did an update, and its SO MUCH BETTER ...

Yes it is. Even on the desktop!

I suppose I should get back to X-men post X of Swords

At least X-Men proper  :)
(Oh, and Wolverine as I think you like Percy's stuff. It has been pretty fun)

Didn't get half of what I wanted to get in, but here is the finished list from this week that I kept meaning to post updates on but never did
 :(

Serial #1 (re-read)
Serial #2
Serial #3
Serial #4 - Terry Moore goes back to a more horror'ish tone with his Serial. Here we find our main protagonist(?), the centuries old 10 year old Zoe (from Rachel Rising), discovering that there is an active serial killer taking out people. What will Zoe do? Yeah, what will she do indeed. Great stuff, but I am a Terry Moore whore, so ...

Shadowman #2 - Decided to give this series another go and see if I stick around. I will decide after the next issue. Right now it is on the fence. Its decent enough, but with so much to read, is it worth getting?

DCI

Injustice: Gods Among Us #1
Injustice: Gods Among Us #2
Injustice: Gods Among Us #3
Injustice: Gods Among Us #4
Injustice: Gods Among Us #5
Injustice: Gods Among Us #6
Injustice: Gods Among Us #7
Injustice: Gods Among Us #8
Injustice: Gods Among Us #9
Injustice: Gods Among Us #10
Injustice: Gods Among Us #11
Injustice: Gods Among Us #12
Injustice: Gods Among Us #13
Injustice: Gods Among Us #14
Injustice: Gods Among Us #15 - More of a re-read with the first 6 issues (which equates to only two issues really as it take three issues of this digital title to equal one issue of its print version). Pretty good stuff, Taylor doing what he does and doing well, but the art is kinda rough for me. Not horrible and nothing that will keep me from reading, but enough to have me notice some problems every now and then. It looks crazy to me that I read all these and its only 5 comics worth  ;D

MU

X-Men #18 - So a Mutant team of three go to the mysterious (to me) Vault and  ... without spoilers ... a battle insures.
I don't have much info on this Vault (seen a very little bit about it), but it seems it is a place where time ... fluctuates? (Sorry, most of The Vault history stuff happened in the Mike Carey X-Men stuff which I was not around for so I am going into this pretty cold  :D)

Captain Marvel #32
Captain Marvel #33 - Finishing up Thanos first true "Love of Death, kill the Universe" arc and ... it was okay. I may try one more issue of Captain Marvel, but now that the main threat to him has ... well, now that this title is moving on for awhile, I think I will take a break. It was interesting seeing this story and I'm glad I read through this, but ... well, I want to get to other mid-seventies stuff too

Avengers #125 - What a load of shit. This is, to my knowledge, one of the rare times in the 70's where "the story continues in a different title" ploy was total crap. Tie-Ins are now, most times, bullshit money grabs, but by and large, in the 70's, from what I remember, they used them to introduce fans of one group or character can be introduced to another group or character ... while also going for a money grab.
 ;D
But with this? Bull. After reading CapMar #32, it says the story continues in this issue and then it will finish in CapMar #33, but I did not in anyway that I see, have to read this issue. Is this the precursor of what is to come? The bait and switch?

I believe issue 34 is the last Jim Starlin issue anyway.

Yeah, thanks I forgot to look for this weeks offerings so perfect timing. Plus good news for me is I have nothing that I read that hit this past Monday, so that gives me a little time to catch up on other stuff!

I believe issue 34 is the last Jim Starlin issue anyway.

Oh yeah?
*hits the up MU*
Oh yeah ... I see Englehart takes over the dialog with #34 and then no more Starlin ... Hmmm ... wonder if I want to read this last one now anyway as he did plot and pencil it and it is the intro for Nitro. I suppose I may as well end with that one
Cool, thanks
