I read....

UNLIMITED

Iron Man 9 - and the nearly year trot out of
Jim Hammond, to connect him with other androids again
. Rapidly cooling on this title. Fast

X-men 21 - Um....the neatest thing I found was the artist from East of West had 6 pages in this title!!!

Amazing Spider-man 68 - Even I wonder now if Betty is with the real deal. Would be a cool way to reverse that history from that issue of 35 years ago!!

And the rest of that ap can go to hell.

INFINITE

Nothing...but Bendis is off of Superman work, and Johnson is on! That's got to be better, right? Right?! Here's hoping...

Iron Man 9 [...] Rapidly cooling on this title. Fast

What?
Wow, I really enjoyed this one.
I so fondly remember that Avengers arc ... especially the last two issues Avengers #176 and #177 ... with Korvac against the Avengers!! Oh man, inside the Avengers' Mansion, Perez drawing characters all beat to shit, lying all over the place ... and all the debris and damage to the room and walls that only Perez could do? Oh man ... yeah, so much, so many memories hit my head when they showed all the (then) current Avengers at the door, HA, oh the feels!!!!
Yep enjoyed this

X-men 21 - Um....the neatest thing I found was the artist from East of West had 6 pages in this title!!!

I agree. This was not a great Hickman issue and like Jimmy I did enjoy seeing Dragotta's big eyed people again  ;D, but man did I like
Namor being Namor. Of course another thing I think they should have done is make those last couple of panels ... well ... they could have done a little better, as they mean quite a bit to an upcoming arc.
  :)

And the rest of that ap can go to hell.

PREACH IT!!

INFINITE

Nothing
and
DC Universe Infinite

Titans United #1
The Joker #1
Green Lantern #12
Sweet Tooth: The Return #5

What? No Batman World or Batman Legends? I've been waiting for both of those puppies!!

Got through -

MU

Iron Man #9 - Loved how they worked a special "someone" into the story and yes, those memories!
X-Men #21  - Eh, sure was nice seeing the king be a king  ;D
Strange Academy #11 - No surprise in this mystery, but enjoyed the protective "daddy" aspect  ;D Also, this issue had one of those amazing panels that I love getting from guided view. It was only one panel, but in guided you get this great feeling of time passing thanks to the edit of only showing us part of the panel. Just start the book in guided view, as it comes pretty early (second panel I think) in the library when Shaylee asks Toth a question.
Sometimes its just the little things
 ;D

DCI

Legion '89 #5 - And so it begins
the origin of the Science Police!!!

I want to hear Jeff's thoughts on Titans United.

I picked up:
Justice League #67
Superman and the Authority #3
Titans United #1

I really enjoyed looking at all the variants for FF #35. Some really cool covers!

So I thought - let me bang through these three "Invasion!" titles first and get them out of the way.  Little did I know this first issue is 80 pages long!   And we're not talking 80 pages like todays books.  Nope we are talking 80 page in 1988!!  Those books had tons of dialogue.  I spent an hour reading through it and I'm still not done yet.   :o

Yeppers!!! Lots of stuff packed in those puppies back in the day, huh. Amazing how you can forget about it, huh? getting all used to the way things are now. Heck, even some of the early 70's stuff was like that, just packed with stuff. And again, not just dialog for the sake of dialog, but dialog FOR the story. You certainly got a lot for your 20Ę - $1.00 back then. Now you can pay, what, $5 and get about two pages of what we used to get back in the day?
 ;D

Of course I know Invasion is a prestige book, more pages and all that, but still, those are like the freakin' $10 books now.
 :o

And the art may not have been "better" back then, but it sure was more fun!!
 :)

Invasion! #1 - Finally finished this one off.  Very long but never boring and almost entirely written from the enemies point of view.  Small appearances by Adam Strange, the Omega Men, the Spectre, and the Tasmanian Devil.  Omega Men were my favorite chapter of the story.

I think Iím going to catch up on some others from my list before tackling issue 2!

Invasion! #1 - Finally finished this one off.  Very long ...

I feel ya! It took my like two weeks to get through all three issues of that mini  :D :D I did find that early Mcfarland art pretty neat though. Still young and rough, but the style is there.

So after waking up at 1:45, I read a few issues of MoKF but then wanting to read some more. however, as I forgot to download more than a couple issues (I am still not used to having that freedom on this app), I instead I ended up fighting the new MU app that wouldn't let me access my library or let me search for shit for some bullshit reason (it better be because they were working in an update), I said screw it and switched over to DCI and got a couple more issues in on their app.
 :P

Legion '89 #6 - Mission accomplished! But boy are his "team-mates" pissed!  ;D

Swamp Thing (current) #1 - Decided to reread this after Jeff talked about it. More interested now, after the second read. ;D
Could it be a had more time, could read the entire thing this time instead of trying to stand at the LCS and get the story flipping through the pages? Maybe?
 ;D

Giant-Size Master of Kung-Fu #2 (1974) - Not worth the time, at all  :-\
Master of Kung Fu #32
Master of Kung Fu #33 - Was going to talk more about this issue, the start of a new arc, but just now, just this second went back to my downloads to refresh myself with a name I had forgotten and I get a "Loading Error" message.
 >:( >:( >:(
This damn thing is pissing me off sooo much now.
I think it is because I am no longer signed in, but what the hell is point in F'n downloading your comics ahead of time if you have to be signed in to read the damn things? Come on you #@$&ers, get your shit together!!!!!
