Title: Weekly Reader, October 17, 2022
Post by: Jeff on October 16, 2022, 10:04:23 PM
Here is my plan for next week starting tomorrow.  Assuming the MU calendar is correct.  :D

Going to give House of Slaughter a second chance as it looks like the second arc is about a different character.

As I read most of my issues last night, just going to post them here, at the start, instead of posting in both this week and last.
DC Killing me, so I will not be adding too much more non-DC stuff this week I can tell ya that
 ;D

Also, on a side-note, I see that tomorrow Catwoman: Lonely City #4 is due to hit the shops next week (FINALLY!!!) but the first three issues are up on Ultra now. I really enjoyed that book, so be sure to add the three issues (and the final one) to your "To Read" list. And if yours is anything like mine... whew... it may take you years to get to it, but I think you will like it.
 :)

EDIT - Crap... forgot about the darn Flash issues that are in the Dark Crisis event... Okay... crap!!!

Oh yes!

Strange Academy - Enjoyed this story, but what an odd way/time to take a break. Finish off the arc first guys!!!

Lobster #2 - Hmmm, yeah, this is going back to some BPRD stuff here. Still no idea why this is slotted where it is in the reading order?

Eve Of Judgment #1 - Art was total shit, like a lot of Marvel currently. Just garbage. So much so that it ruined the story. Hell, after this, I change my mind, I am NOT reading AXE as it hits. Not even bothering. I already hated that one X-Men issue I saw the end of, and this crap... BAH!!!

A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1 - Kind of a recap of where the Eternals are right now to prep us for the event. The art is not good though.  Luckily the story has me interested. 

Immortal X-Men #4 - Another good issue.  Read this before you read the A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1 issue above.  Not a big deal if you donít but itís clearly chronologically before that issue.  I liked the focus on Emma in this issue.  Was fun getting her sole perspective of things.

Okay, I've calmed a bit.
I will read AXE monthly as it hits MU. Oh and that is what I meant above. Reading it as it hits MU, not when it hits the stands ;D. Gillen is too good of a writer for me not to, plus the art can't be as bad as what we got in that precursor issue. Can't be.

I also decided, after reading the first issue of the Young Justice Dark Crisis tie-in, that I will NOT be continuing with that 6 part mini.

One Star - Ha, yeah, this is still fun for me. Odd with Red Tornado, I feel I enjoy the nostalgia from his older, JLA days more, back when he was a totally different person android  :), but this is still a worthy time waster. One more issue to go

Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League Superman - First off loved seeing Chris Burnham's return to DC, even though I think he needed a different inker  :), still nice to see his stuff again. I think the Image/Kirkman comic was the last I have seen from him so... oh... sorry... anyway. The stories were okay, we get two here. One Supes and one Aquaman. The latter was... okay, but I did enjoy the former, Supes one a lot more. Still not sure these stories are needed, more
of a Marvel Heroes Reborn feel almost, life on different planes of existence and will be wiped away when we get back to normal  :D
but I will stick with them as I did enjoy this.

Dark Crisis: Young Justice - Not for me. The art was... weird... yeah... weird (it looked nice, at times, but also fairly odd at others?), but the writing didn't click for me. Felt like I wasted my time. I just didn't get into it and with all that I have to get to, I wasn't putting myself through reading something I am not enjoying. I do hope it hits (did hit) for Rodney however.
 
Dark Crisis 2 - Woah boy, okay,
great save by Supes there!!!
I hope this series is worth it. Still not sold on the concept yet, the man in power and such, but hey, I am here and looking forward to more

Dark Crisis: Young Justice did NOT do anything for me. I tried the first two issues and just couldn't get into it. The art was weird (well said, Perry). I stopped after the second issue. I didn't bother with the random World without a Justice League. They will eventually be collected in a TPB or appear on DCUltra (yes, I joined).

AXE the main series has a different artist than whatever this book was that is an extended trailer for the main series.

Rodney on DC Ultra? Alrighty!!!
 :)

Sooo, yeah, I read the World Without a JL issue way out of order. I just forgot to look and I thought I was on that issue. Nope. I rearranged the GL issue of that title out of the Dark Crisis reading order as I don't see that it matters. Also deleted the Young Justice issues.

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

Dark Crisis WWJL: Wonder Woman - Yeah, not for me. Maybe there is something here that I overlooked, it is possible as I ended up skimming most of the WW section, but I didn't see anything. The Martian Manhunter was... odd, but I liked that. These are just an alternate world type of "look here, its different" stories. Nothing wrong with that, but it is NOT a tie-in to Dark Crisis... yet? Maybe I missed it here or maybe GL will be the tie-in I am looking for? Apologies to Obi-Wan for that last ;)

Nightwing - Okay, arc wise... and no spoilers, but at least THAT thing is over. There is still the OTHER thing  ;D ;D, and I don't know what the deal is with him, but I did get more intrigued a couple issues or so ago when we saw what we saw with him and his... what... assistant? Anyway, onto the best part... Hot Damn I loved the love!!!
 ;D

Captain America - Yeah, I like the idea here. I don't like a certain aspect of it, but the "5" aspect, the group, yeah, I am digging that part a lot. Now I just have to try and wait for the end. I don't know about this collected reading guys

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

Batman - This is okay, I like the plot, but as I have not read Batman proper in some time, I feel a little lost. I have some questions. One of which is do I put this on the back burner for now and read when things are a little less "ULTRA DROP"?
 ;D

Dark Crisis - I'm dropping this. It isn't bad, but I don't see how certain things are working here. IE how someone got so powerful that the JLA is... well... anyway. I probably(?) know where we are going with this, and that is a good thing, but not sure I want to read about it right now. Maybe later

EDIT - I forgot about Mad Magazine - more flipped through than read this issue, I didn't read much of the movie joke/homage stories (and there were lots  ;D) but mainly stayed on the one or two page joke pages. Still, it was fun. I may go back and read the movie stuff, but it seems so... passe now
 ;D

Lobster Johnson - Yay!! Not only am I finished with the Lobster stuff, that last trade I read did tie into the BPRD stuff. My brain, as bad as it is, gets how it ties in, but I wish my memory was a little better
 ;D

Sledgehammer. I started this and was happy to see it was a WWII title. I love that era, well the 30's and 40's really. I finished this late one night, a few days ago, but I am going to reread this issue. I think I missed something as I don't remember how it ended
 :D :D
