Sucks about Once and Future #29. Of course you know, as luck goes, it will probably be up on Hoopla this week. Now that, ya know, you paid for it  :D

Got a jump on this week as I was up at 1:30, so I read most of the Marvel I was set to read for this week  :)

Oh, lastly, as I don't see it on Jeff's for this week  ;) (He wants to go all big, massive arc and all  :D) I thought I would recommend that everyone should have Catwoman: Lonely City 1-4 on their to be read list, to get to at some point
 :)
(Of course I say that without having read the last issue, so maybe wait on that)
 :D :D :D

Also, not planning on getting much BPRD stuff in this week as I have so much I want (need?, no.. want) to catch up on ;D

A.X.E.: Death to the Mutants #1, X-Men #13, & A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY #3 - linking these together as they are all parts of the same story.  In general I am enjoying this crossover.  Itís definitely more Eternals & X-Men.  I like the interactions with all the different characters.  Iím also ready to get to the end.  I think Iím more interested in what impact this will have rather than dragging out the battles.

X-Force #30 - Why oh why does this have an A.X.E. Tie in label on it?  It takes place at a different time and the A.X.E. event isnít even mentioned.  >:(   That said, the story/issue itself was a lot of fun.  Iím going to love having Deadpool on this team!

Daredevil #2 - Didnít care for this villain.  I hope he doesnít stick around long.

Strange #5 - Nice twist! This should make things interesting!

Genis-Vell: Captain Marvel #2 - Still enjoying this.  It can get a little hockey but thatís normal for PAD.

Amazing Spider-Man #8 - Loved this Vulture stuff and even like JRJRís art on the Vulture for some reason.  Iím not a fan of the reformed Norman Osborn though.  Zeb Wells is a fun writer so Iím sure this will be good but I bet it could be even better.

Time for me to catch up on what I've read over the last 2 weeks or more, so here goes!!

MARVEL UNLIMITED
Immortal X-men 5
Legion of X 4 (Nah, I think I'm done too)
Iron Man 22 (cant tell if this is pretty good, or just good enough)
X-men Red 5 -Okay this is good!
New Fantastic Four -not good enough
Moon Knight 14 - good enough!
Ghost Rider 5 -okay, awesome, I love this take!
AXE Judgement Day 2 & 3-I Know at the end of the day, this won't be worth it, but it's better than Fear Itself!!
Jane Foster & Mighty Thor 3 -I have a lot of trouble focusing to keep attention to the book
Daredevil 2 -THE GREATEST
Strange 5 - Soo good!!
Hulk 8 - really digging this crossover, and really good stuff!
Captain America Sentinel of Librty 3 -I really love the Steve Rodgers title. I enjoy the adventuring, near swashbuckling invading type of Cap, and this so far has me giddy reading it!
Amazing Spider-man 7 & 8 -this title is so weird, what with the unknowns, time jumps, and Norman Osborn somehow legitimatized AGAIN
Iron Cat 3 -naw, solidly done with this
Punisher 5 - OH boy...this is gonna make Frank MAD
Avengers 59, 1mil BC, and Forever 8 - these all feel like elseworlds tales, and what ifs? And I have  a hard time connecting with it.

By the way, SO WEIRD that all the prime Marvel books all have these single digit counts...Hulk, Daredevil, Amazing Spider-man, Captain America, X-men...sheesh, let the titles get some pedigree!!

AXE Judgement Day 2 & 3-I Know at the end of the day, this won't be worth it, but it's better than Fear Itself!!

Ha, no doubt about that!! And yes, I am loving AXE

Time Before Time - The BEST arc of the series so far!

Man, I just wish I could get past the arc. I tried it again and the art is just killing me. And I say that being the guy that usually likes the "different" look in comic art. But sometimes, ya know how you can't understand why something bugs you? Well that is what happens... what has happened to me with this.
I will certainly try it again, down the road, as I do like the story. Found it very cool.

Got a couple in this morning.
And hey I was right about Human Target, it was issue #8. I guess we never discussed issue #7 here? I used the search function to look for it and it never came up.  :-\
Oh well
(Also found out that Ultra has the Tales of the Human Target #00001 out to, so don't forget that one)

Predator - Ha, I must have read this at the shop already. Oh well, read it again. Pretty good. Even the second time  ;D

Strange - One of the few Marvel titles currently that I enjoy the art (Lots of bad art titles out there at Marvel in my opinion). Also a pretty good story. Love the reveal!!!

Human Target - Kinda the same ole same ole with King I think, or at least it feels that way. There wasn't much here, a lot of stretching the story which he loves to do. Don't get me wrong, it was a good "conflict" in the eighth issue, but taking this and then thinking about all that has been told, this could easily have fit in a smaller run. But I am here until the end.
Oh, and the "Tales of" issue was... yeah, okay.

Catwoman - What a damn fine piece of storytelling this was. Considering this is one of those rare treats of an arc where the story is told with the writer, penciler, inker, colorist and letterer all being the same guy!!! Cliff Chang absolutely knocks it out of the F'n park here. Is it as powerful as King's Supergirl? No, but its not that kind of story. What it is though is a very fun "elseworlds" story told masterfully.
10 out of 10... Etrigan rhymes ?

A collection of magic heroes brought together to fight the Darkness.  Alan Moore at his great weirdness best and seems to set the stage for todays Dark Crisis.  It will be VERY interesting to see if the Crisis ties into these characters and what happened to them here!

When you get to THAT moment of Action 1049, and the small littel flashback scene, I felt POWER in the writing of the moment! Really resonated with me!!!!

I dug Human Target a lot. A love letter to JLI, and also...you don't get what you want each day, that's for sure!

Infinite Frontier #0 - the reboot after Death Metal event.
Infinite Frontier #1 - start of new Darkness references and tour of the multiverse. Director Bones of the DEO and Cameron Chase are back. Justice Incarnate (President Superman, Flashpoint Batman, Captain Carrot, Aquawoman, Machinehead, Flash-Barry Allen, and Mary Marvel) begins.  Already talk of a new Crisis coming.
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #1 - President Superman of Earth-23 focused story.
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #2 - Roy Harper focused story.
Infinite Frontier #2 -  mystery of missing heroes, new Black Lantern, Darkseid Is.  Great cliffhanger with Chase.
Infinite Frontier #3 - Obsidian (a controller of darkness? Hmmm) & Alan Scott searching for Jade, Psycho Pirate, Hector Hammond. I had forgotten how good this book is!
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #3 - Jade & Obsidian focused story.
Infinite Frontier #4 - storylines start coming together and then a betrayal!
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #4 - Spotlight on Martian Manhunter and the Totality.
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #5 - Spotlight on Director Bones.
Infinite Frontier #5 - Penultimate issue where all the questions are answered.  All thatís left is the final battle.
Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #6 - Spotlight on Psycho Pirate and how he got to where he is at the start of this story.
Infinite Frontier #6 - Oh wow! I had totally forgotten how this ended!  DEFINITELY kicks off Dark Crisis and ties into those Swamp Thing issues (sort of).

Iím so glad I reread this.  It brought it all back to me and really pumped me up for more to come!

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

Abe Sapien: The Drowning - So I knocked out the first Abe Sapien Omnibus and I am left feeling a little sad. Not because of the story, well, not because of anything that happened in the story, but the way it is collected. No, I should say WHAT is collected. It started off great, but then with the rest of the book being filled with one-shots or short stories, I didn't get that good flow that I love so much when I read titles in the collected format. It was almost like just read single issues. Hell, it was just reading single issues, so... yeah.
Oh and I read that one issue that I was told to wait on. I wasn't going to use a credit to get this huge book again just to read an 8 page or so story. I know WHY they wanted me to wait, but I have been long spoiled by what is reference here, what "thing" happens in future issues, so yeah, not a big deal.

Being Human - So once again I get a good run of issues collected, this time a three issue story (that was pretty damn good), but then we're right back to the singles that don't truly tie-in, put in more for filling space to make a trade. So much of a filler that they included a story I JUST READ... (Casualties) which was also in the Abe Sapien Drowning omni I just finished
 >:(

Oh well, one more short story and I am back to long form, collected storytelling with the B.P.R.D Hell on Earth omnis  :) :) :) About 5 of them?  :o :o :o

AXE Death to mutants was a waste of my time. I had hoped with Gillen writing it, it be a worthwhile tie in. Naw!

X men 13 was better then
AXE 3 was worthwhile! What a cool moment of prophecy!

Detective comics was fine. It's gonna be a weird storyline from Ram V.

Cap America 4 with Sam was really cool, actually. This new Falcon continues to grow on me.

We're gonna disagree on that one! Not sure I would come close to saying it was a waste of time.
I enjoyed it and thought it way more story involved with Eternal reasoning and if I remember, which I probably don't  :D :D I enjoyed seeing the Uranos more on Mars... unless that happened in X-Men
 ;D ;D ;D
If so, then yeah.
 ;D ;D

I read it going...'this really wasn't helpful beyond more minute details coming out that aren't that impactful.'''Unless I'm mooshing some of that with the other AXE tie ins...I just know that once I read AXE 3, which I did after Death to..., I felt much better about AXE again.

I've also gone through..

Deathstroke 10-14- Okay. Priest did this better to me in the previous volume. 1 more issue and the title is cancelled again.
Stargirl The Lost Children 1 -LOVED IT. Nauck was so good in this issue! I love the little history and mystery of this all!
Detective comics 1065 - just progressing the story. Kinda weak this month, actually. I can't read that back up. It's so dreadfully terrible I can't progress past a page.
Tim Drake Robin 2 - dammit, I've tried so hard. I cannot read this art. I can't stomach it. Visually, there is nothing I enjoy about taking in this story with my eyes. If the writing was so immediately out of this world, I'd probably try and keep up. However, I'm quitting this book.

Joker: the Man who stopped laughing - OH man, that ending!! What are we gonna see come out of this?
Fantastic Four 46 -I have no connection with this title. Another Richards sibling. Okay.

I hoopla'd
The Scumbag Vol1 Cocainefinger - so weird. But fun to read!
Vampirella Seduction of the Innocent vol 2 - PRIEST
Started Sharkey the Bounty Hunter (just because it's Millar and Simone Bianchi)

Yeah man, I like what they are doing overall.

I also know that by avoiding most of the "tie-ins", like with any Marvel "event", I won't miss too much. Probably a little of what you felt as well with that one.

All good!

Whew... it seems like almost a year since I have read that BPRD Omnibus concerning those damnable "frogs"  :D but now, after reading some Hellboy Weird Tales, 3 trades containing the history of a Witchfinder, 5 trades starring a 1930's hero with a crustacean fetish  :D, a trade about a WWII Iron Man suit, 3 trades featuring the BPRD back in the mid to late 40s and 3 trades about BPRD's (current) number one, Abe Sapien... not to mention perusing a trade starring a young Hellboy... the day has finally come. Finally, I am returning to where I left off with the BPRD group. Finally I am back to the present.
Oh, how giddy I am.

Ectoplasmic - A decent story of what happened to push BPRD's ectoplasmic medium, Johann Kraus, into the containment suit he walks around in. It may have hit a little better if I wasn't in such a rush to get back to the present with the BPRD group  ;D, but still a decent one-shot

Worlds Finest - I remember reading issue #1 and #2 when they hit the shop all those months ago and thinking how absolutely wonderful this title was going to be. I also remember feeling saddened when Jeff wrote, after reading the first 5 issues...
"While I didnít care for the villain..."
I had thought the first couple issues, which had a couple of other, different villains was whom he was making reference. I have since now discovered the same less than stellar villain and feeling and for that I am kind of pissed.

Justice League Incarnate #1-5 - oh wow.  I canít believe I stopped reading this right before the issue that ties everything together.  I noticed that Williamson is a co-writer on this.  Iím thinking he plotted this and the other guy wrote the dialogue which is why itís not as good as Infinite Frontier.  But probably a must read for Dark Crisis.

Batman vs Robin - Like Jeff (and I think Jimmy as well... not sure about Rodneym but I think so as well, if I remember right  :)) I am also not a huge fan of the antagonist in this series (future event) although I did LOVE seeing
my boy Trigon
in that second issue ;D
But I am in too deep to not stay up on this now. I have faith in Waid.

World's Finest - Look, I love Waid. I think he is an amazing writer with a supreme grasp on how heroes should act, but damn am I coming away cold with my thoughts on his two latest creations. One of which I already touched briefly on above, but here, with
Thunder Boy,
while showing promise, Waid is yet to make me truly feel connected to this guy. Although the last issue did raise my attention level a little bit more, so maybe curiosity will bring a connection soon.
