Title: Weekly Reader, November 7, 2022
Post by: Perry on November 07, 2022, 01:02:57 PM
I carried over a few titles from last week and my goal was to have a slower week this week, but with Marvel dropping both Red and Immortal X-Men issue fives, I decided it was time to catch up on those two titles. Seeing as how they are the only X-books I am reading now I better get some done. The Green Arrow Crisis issue may be lost in the pile this week, along with the DD and PM/IF issues, but I throwing em up here anyway as I do feel like reading them... as of this writing :) 
Plan on going light with Hoopla, though I may still add the next BPRD trade. At least it isn't another omni  :D
I HAVE to get to the Reckless book this week

Action Comics #1044 - Iím starting to get tired of this story.  Probably a sign that it ran too long.  Going to push through as Iíve been enjoying it and definitely want to see how it finally ends.

Action Comics #1045 - Closing in on the big ending.  All the pieces are coming together.

Basilisk #11  - the answers are all coming together. Next issue is the big finish!

Basilisk #12 - And thatís a wrap. One bloody ending.  2nd half was not as good as the first half but it did bring things to an acceptable conclusion.  All in all a good mini series.

Started to read Batman vs Robin, got two pages in and decided I needed to add #1. Not sure if I read it, I thought I did, but I remember NOTHING, and without the recap page (thank you Marvel), I have to go back and remind myself what had occurred (If I did read it, haha, thanks DC)

Follow Me Down- A Reckless Book

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

Bloodshot - Great art, though not as much Perez as I mentioned or thought. Still clean and it does remind me of someone, but it is nice to my eyes...
especially the fight through the halls and floors
:)

DD - Meh, not as good as the past few. Not a fan of
Electra taking Matt's place.
I'm more intrigued by
what's going on with the other replacement for Matt  ;D

Terror Through Time - Maybe there was a story that was worth the time but I didn't find it. Hoping someone that paid the cover price got their money's worth though

DC:GA - Meh, not bad, not good. Nice ending, but again, there is nothing here in these Crisis special one-shots that have any bearing on the event at all. Much like the main issues of a Marvel Event
 :D :D

 >:(

Little Monsters #4-6 - Glad I came back to this. The story really picked up in these three issues.  And that cliff hanger!  How am I going to wait for the next full trade?!?

Primordial #6 - Flipped through the first 5 issues to refresh my memory b4 reading issue 6.  This one is probably best read all together.  I liked it much better that way.  That said, it had a nice wrap up with this issue.  Good ending a beautiful art by Sorrentino.

Thatís two Jeff Lemire series in one sitting! Oh happy day!

You still buying all of these, after just joining Ultra? Wow buddy, congrats on having it like that, dawg
 :)

I still have to get to the LCS to check out the FF issue, just to see what to expect (doesn't it have to be better than Slott? Doesn't it? Maybe?) but knocked out the Brubaker stuff finally!!
Still want to try and read that X-Men stuff soon, but I don't know...

B.P.R.D Vampire <-- Added
Time Before Time v1 <-- Added ... I KNOW, I KNOW!!!!  >:(


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

Follow Me Down - Ahhh, Burbaker and Phillips does it again, mostly. These original trades they make are never going to be joyful reads, most likely  ;D, so I keep that in mind, but this was good for... not being joyful?
 ;D

Vampire - Sooo, somehow I forgot that I had already read this, way back when I was first starting my Hellboy/BPRD universe read through. I read this about five months ago, just on a whim, before I started following the Mignola'verse reading order that I am now following. Ha, soon as I flipped op the first "page" I realized what I had done. It was cool reading this at first without the knowledge of the past and now, months later, reading it in order, knowing what and how and who and all that... getting a different perspective. Better this time I can say!

LOL... I wish I had money like that. I adjusted my pull at my LCS. I still have a soft spot for the old brick and mortar shops. And when I finish a title or book, I generally list it on eBay to break even or make a profit.

 ;D
Right on. Again, as long as you're happy than who the hell am I, but glad you are getting some $ on the flip. Even an offset of cost is worth it.
 :)

That is the way most of us here did it, but it got, for me, so damn frustrating trying to keep the comics in "profitable" shape that I decided to throw my hands up and stop. I still try to give my smaller shop the occasion buck or two, even though I recently stopped getting my Back-Issue from him  :-\, but price is price and with digital, at least from the top two, being so soon from day of release and the fact I don't have to worry about corner damage, I stay mostly with the tablet now.

And $40 for 8 or 9 issues of Back Issue on my tablet vs $40 for only 4 issues of Back Issue in my hand... ? Yeah, I'm taken the 8 or 9 every time. Sorry 'lil LCS

Ant Man #1 - Al Ewing! - Love it.  A little jarring at first as itís written and drawn like a Marvel comic from the 1960ís but it all fits with the story and promises to make this 4 issue mini one to remember!

Gambit #1 - I like this.  It takes place back in the time when Storm first met Gambit and the two weíre running together as thieves.  Probably not a series for everyone but Iím enjoying it.
