Well make sure you let us know what ya grabbed
 :)

For me, I have no idea what more I am going to add to this (I know one more will hopefully be Mazebook #4... if the price goes down) but figured I would go ahead and carry over last weeks for a place holder and add the one Image book I want to try (that should be cheaper as the next issue should hit today).
 :D
Oh, I may add that Gaiman Eternals to my MU list. Jimmy reminded me of that and I do want to read it, but not going to put it up on the list until I know I can at least start it.
 ;)
Crap, also, I also think Terry Moore's last issue hits next week so I am probably not going to wait any longer to read that Serial #9
Okay, okay, I'm done.  ;D

Black Hammer: Reborn #6 - I canít remember whether or not this issue is the issue that Perry hated. But I liked it. I love Skulldigger and his use in this issue with Black Hammer was a lot of fun. Also glad to see Dr. Andromeda.

The Department of Truth #14 - Iím still enjoying this but Iím ready for the main story to move faster.  Hopefully this is the start of those answers.  This issue takes us back to the 60ís for some of Leeís past.

Fire Power #18 - Iím ready to drop this but want to get to the end of this arc since it seems to have all of the answers in it.  Getting closer.

No, it was the one prior. The issue before was more of the same "when is this? What am I doing? Why?" from Colonel Weird that I do like, I am just getting tired of the resistiveness and it taking up the entirety of issues. Move forward with it!
 >:(
This issue was good

King of Spies #1 - Nice!  Excellent aging spy story and off to a great start!

Mazebook #3 - Man I really love this book.  So packed with emotion.  I can literally feel this guyís frustration and pain. And what a cliffhanger!

Newburn #1-2  - I like it.  Very noir.  Retired cop gone private eye for the mob.  All of them.  Nothing could possibly go wrong.  If your a fan of Criminal, pick this up.

Redneck #31 - Whoa! A giant time jump for the last arc of this series. Pretty good start and draws you in with an older Perry. 

Crossover #10 - this just gets weirder and weirder.  Pretty good interrogation of Brian Michael Bendis by the Powers team though.  That was funny. And the big villain reveal at the end is kind of funny too.

Post Americana #7 - Series Finale.  I canít really say I enjoyed this journey but I didnít hate it either.  Kind of a sick and twisted series with a tired plot of disparaging rich people.  We really need some new ideas for these stories.

Oh great, just what we need, an older Perry  ;)
So glad this came back. This and Saga are Image staples to me that I will never shy away from... even if it takes me months and months to read them
 :D

Nah, I'm fine with rich people being crapped on and portrayed as evil asses.  I say the more "eat the rich" stories we can get the better
 :)
If you aint a Warren Buffet kinda rich guy, one that wants to pay his taxes and actually does, makes his kids earn every bit of what they get and have respect for every person on this planet equally... well you can pucker your gold toilet having, diamond rimmed Bentley owning, space-faring, multiple yacht cruising lips and kiss my middle class ass.

EDIT -
Ha, forgot what I cam here for...

**************************************************

Nice House on the Lake - Actually didn't finish this as I got about 3 pages in and decided that this book has so many characters that are new for me and it is a semi-mystery type of story right now, that I am going to wait until the first half is done and read issues 1-6 all in one sitting

Reckless: Friend of the Devil - Another good story from our Criminal creators. Not quite as fun as the first, but I still have the same desire to get that third and final volume of this series. Let's see if I make it through the weekend
 :D

So going to sign back up for Comixolgy Unlimited again. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Gillen's Once and Future series and I have wated to read some good ole James Bond comics again as well and I can get quite a lot of both for free if I sign up for CU.
Going to wait on Magic Order and King of Spies to complete before reading so I am taking them off the list. Also waiting a little longer to read Dark Ages, although I'm not sure yet that I will wait for it to be finished prior to starting.
Added a little bit more to bulk up the list, primarily the comic adaption of Heir to the Empire. The first book in a trilogy that I read a long time ago, but never got around to the second and third books. Figured it was time I at least read the comic version of those books
 ;D

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

The Silver Coin #7 - what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. And the horror the coin brings with it stays there too.  

Star Trek: The Mirror War - Data #1 - Just ok.  A quick one shot that doesnít have anything to do with the main story.

Primordial #4 - an interesting read still but I have no idea whatís going on.  And I donít feel any closer to any answers than I did in the beginning.  I do like the animals though!

Serial - DAAAAMN I should have waited until #10 came out. This ended with me dying to read the next page, only to find there wasn't one to be read in this issue!!!

Serial #9 - against Perrys advice I went ahead and read this before issue 10 has come out.  And of course, I LOVED IT!  Great issue and great cliff hanger.  So glad issue 10 comes out next week so I donít have to wait long!

******************************************

Immortal Hulk - Nice end to the fifty issue arc and while I thought it was decent enough, that time between this issue and the last was just way to much and it affected my enjoyment of this issue. Of course I could just be bitter due to me paying for the last three issues thinking this issue would hit right when I finished reading issue #49 (nope), so there is that.
 :D
