Just to let you know, Jeff, Little Monsters #2 is, I believe, hitting this Wednesday and that should, if things hold true, make that issue #1 of said title to be on sale. I know you are a fan of the writer and I am almost positive you like the artist as well, seeing as you read both of that team-up's other two titles to the end. Even if one title was more or less a part 2 of the first title... kinda
 ;)

Already finished with my 4 from Marvel!!!

MARVEL UNLIMITED

Timeless : I can recall a scant 2 years ago when it was known that Donny Cates was the new man at Marvel with all he was writing and delivering on. Now? I believe Jed McKay has stepped up into that role now. Loved his work here. Had a blast reading this issue, and man, Kang just sings for me now. Fascinating character! And that ending!!! And speaking of McKay - -

Death of Dr. Strange 4: I've been really digging this mini, thinking I really wouldn't. But no lying, this has been a great mini series, I loved the thinking of Strange here, the sleuthing, the planning of him (even if I felt underwhelmed by the result of this issues conclusion, tbh), I'm still soundly onboard for this!

Amazing Spider-man 83: This issue delivered. YOu know why? Patrick Gleason wrote and drew it. Great mindscapes, great pursuit of finding who Peter is, and just enough spookiness to make you maybe fear or question what Peter is doing, Very cool issue

Devil's Reign 2:
Didn't like it. don't like it. It's Civil War, badly redone. It's so obnoxioulsly tyrannical that its become unbelievably stupid.

DC UNLIMITED

Detective Comics 1043
Action Comics 1035
Batman/Superman 22
Robin 6
Deathstroke, Inc 1
Superman Son of Kal-El 1

Probably some more New Teen Titans and Justice League Internation/of America when I get around to it!

Devilís Reign #2 - Good issue.  Iím enjoying this event and the way Zdarsky writes some of my favorite characters.  Especially Electra and Doctor Octopus.  Lots of fun this is.  Clearly Jimmy and I disagree on this one.

Death of Doctor Strange #4 - The murderer revealed! In the classic whodunnit style.  Very fun issue.  Plus some good Bats time which is always fun.

Timeless #1 - Like Jimmy said, great issue.  Everything Kang seems to be hitting this year.  Too bad this was a one shot as Iíd love to see more Kang!

Small week which is great. I still have alot of reading from last week to finish. Saw alot of cool Marvel stuff on the racks that I will be reading in a few months. This waiting is killing me but my wallet is happy.

Justice League #68 - JL Dark backstory only. Well this has been fun but not really happy they are bringing back this villain yet again. I thought we had moved on from this. I guess weíll see how this all wraps up next issue.

Deathstroke Inc. #1 - I wasnít expecting much since I knew Rodney wasnít a fan of this title. But I have to say I kind of enjoyed this issue. It was very creepy and very strange but for a first issue intro, I liked it. Weíll see how it goes in the future.

Radio Spaceman #1 - This was a cool new world story.  I like the premise, the weirdness, and the characters.  Too bad itís only a two issue mini.

Star Trek: The Mirror War - Captain LaForge #1 - Interesting side trip into LaForgeís past.  I enjoyed this story.

Just you wait....all of sudden 3 months has gone by, and then Unlimited becomes your new current, and you'll never care about a floppy again.

Until Genis Vell returns. Go out and buy those issues. I am!

Yeah, I am kinda stoked about this. I couldn't find his debut in my long boxes. So I am scavenging this weekend at my LCS.

Nocterra #8 - I think Iím getting bored with this.  Iíll read part 2 of this arc and then decide if I want to finish it.

Crossover #12 - Man this is a lot of navel gazing.  But Negan vs Kirkman? Yeah, I enjoyed that!

But there is just something about having...that Silver Surfer issue! I won't lie, I don't have his original appearance either! Some super fan I am!!

 :D

My reading time has been close to nil so far this week. Certainly not coming close to getting through my list. Funny how that truly does piss me off.
 ;D
No more lists for me.
Yes, I am pouting and taking my toys home

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

Timeless - This was a solid book. Still seems odd seeing that some of the "future" events Kang sees has already happened, I guess this title ran late or something? Regardless it was still a good read. I look forward to the Doom vs Kang mini that SHOULD be coming soon  ;) :D :D

Flash - This issue from Johns was better than what I had read before of his Flash, so I am on for a few. I will say that this issue does have pronounced panels where the writer and the artist are not quite in sync, still learning each other's craft and how they will work together. That's fine, it is a great thing to see actually because I know this team does work well together in the not too distant future, so yeah, that was cool. A good read.

Jeez, over half the week gone and I have two freaking issues in the bag?

Yeah. I need to get back to this as well. Never gonna happen if I don't get my reading (lack of) under control  :-\

I don't know, maybe it is just my mood, but I did mention a little bit ago about how I am spending a lot of money on comics again, compared to the "free" stuff I get from MU and DCI I mean, and with the way I read... do I need to buy more comics right now?. Hell I just spent about 25 bucks on more digital stuff about two weeks ago and it will probably take me months to F'n read those!!! Sure I want to read them, but couldn't I wait until I was up to date a little? NOOOO... I had to get it now?!?!?!
So yeah, maybe I slow down so I can, like I mentioned above, "bet back" to some of the older stuff I want to read or reread. Heck, if for nothing else, finish reading the damn issues I have already bought!!!! I have tons of Image books to read. Tons.
 >:(
It's getting as bad as it used to be for me with comics. Buying (or downloading) just to possess. I need to get to the reading side of things, not just that "having" side.
 :-\

And hell, I probably could have read an issue of something instead of typing all of this! See? Poor use of time is what it is
 :D :D

Takes forever to read those damn thing  :D :D :D

Just think, we used to get almost 20-30 minutes of read time with those damn things and had to pay $1.50 for the good paper.
Now some comics are over in a matter of 120 seconds and they want us to pay almost four times the price

What a sucky "list" week

Going back to playing it by ear. Listing what I did read, not what I want to get to. I know it shouldn't matter, at all, but not completing this meaningless list bugs me

I hate things left unfinished. Even trivial little stuff like a comics list
