The Green Lantern Annual 1, The Green Lantern 9-12; TGL: Darkstar: Man, this stuff is super trippy balls, even for me with my fandom of Grant Morrison. The payoff of issue 12 puts it over into 'worth it!'

Unlimted:

Maestro 1 : I will love and hold dear anything Peter Daved ever writes for the Hulk.

X-force 10-I like this book!
New Mutants 10-this book arc with the sad Russian girl I like!
Marauders 10- I got 11 to read to see what else this title does for me
Giant Size X-men Magneto-Ok, Emma got something she wanted. Good enough.

After X-men is all caught up, then it's Empyre...then it's back to DC for all of Grant Morrisons Doom Patrol run (they have it all up!), Justice League International after issue 35 (which is all I got in trades before they quit collecting them), and all of Mark Waid's Flash is sitting there.

Oh yeah, after catching up on Batman, Detective Comics, and Flash since Rebirth.  Tongue   Cheesy Cheesy

Doctor Strange #6 - I wish we knew why this was the last issue.  I guess sales but I donít know why sales were low.  Waidís version has been a fun read.  Iíll miss this one each month.

Guardians of the Galaxy #5 - Iím not hating this but I understand why Jimmy doesnít like it.  I like the Rabbit character but hated the villain that hired him.  Also hate this version of Groot.  I blame Bendis for that.  Now that this arc is over Iíll stick around for one more arc.

Hawkman 18: I just like this title.

So glad I grabbed this issue on a whim. Made me love the character again (of course just in time for it to get canceled Cry)

Dr. Strange 6: Oh! A Covid cancellation...that'....that sucks....Sad

AMEN!!!

GoTG 5: Um...I feel nothing about or for this title. Why am I reading? Just hoping it gets to stuff I like, I guess?

You may as well bolt now, my man. The tone, story, plot ... everything is consistent. So if you don't enjoy it by now, you aint gonna  Smiley

Cable 1 art is trash.

 Shocked
First time I have ever heard Phil Noto's art described as anything close to that. I know we differ on a lot of things but WOW!!! Love me some Noto.

New Mutants 6-8: I can't find myself to like all of Bobby and NM in space. I just..don't. IT's...nonsense.

Ha "Nonsense". A person with flames constantly erupting from their mouth, a teammate that can send his body flying by having his lower half become a propulsion unit, another that turns into a wolf ... all that is okay, but this ...  Wink Grin

Just kidding of course, I understand what you mean, but that word was just funny to me
 Grin

This title is all over the place for me.

That it was. I couldn't take it. I had to jump ship. I did enjoy the "nonsense"  Wink space stuff a tad more than the other stuff, but with two different writers doing their thing on alternate (and then consecutive and then back to alternate?) issues, it was too much going on for me. I think.

Marauders 7-9: I don't think I like this book.

I think, with your last comment about wanting to see Kate's last, that you are going to try the next, but just in-case ... like Jeff said, just go one more issue. Issue #9 is when it turned for me and then #10 sold it. Ever since it has been very interesting. And I say that with the fact that I don't really care for most of the characters on this book
 Undecided
Of course we do tend to, as I said, be polar opposites on a lot of stuff. Like that Noto absurdity for example  Grin

Oh, and I already quit Excalibur

Well you are going to (I assume) return to it with the X of Swords event, so please ask about or google what has transpired prior to the event start. The Apocalypse stuff is an important part of Swords. So much so that before Swords started I went back and got all the issues of this (not great) title to read so I knew what was going on. Glad I did. Even though I didn't enjoy the book, I feel it was important to the event. Very much so, honestly.

Empyre #4 - [...] Is this the "big impact" to the Marvel universe Perry was talking about?

Well, the impact I was referencing was basically towards the Hulk Universe, but yeah, there is another high impact event shown here ... although it is not much an impact for us readers as much as it is for the Marvel Cosmic Universe in general
 Wink
All that said, I still was let down with this event. Shocking, yeah?

Empyre Handbook #1 - pretty much what I expected - just a handbook.  Good info on the characters but most of which you can grasp from the main book even if your new to the characters.

Lords of Empyre: Celestial Messiah #1 - More naval gazing.  Not a must read as far as I'm concerned.

Empyre #4 - Got really good with this issue.  Is this the "big impact" to the Marvel universe Perry was talking about?  If so, then yes.  This is a big impact.

Marauders 7-9: I don't think I like this book. I think I quit this book. Yeah...I quit this book.But I think I do want to see the resolution of Kate's last adventure...

Oh, and I already quit Excalibur

Hmmm.  You might want to wait until after X of Swords to quit them.  I had quit them too and had to go back and get them.  Well, I didn't have to but it helped.  And Marauders got better for me after a start I didn't like.  If you haven't got to the "death" yet then you might want to hang on to Marauder's a little longer.

Okay!!!

DC Universe
Hawkman 18: I just like this title. Sky Tyrant is going to make this more fun too!!
Justice League 26: Still going....Doom-y places. Ok, whatevs. Terrible fill in artist too. Go to the Orrery of Worlds to be told to find the Monitor and Anti-Monitor. Let's see how this goes
Aquaman 53: Okay, I like old myths and monsters and the people who bring them. Cool stuff with the old writer and his curse


Now to the Unlimited...
Dr. Strange 6: Oh! A Covid cancellation...that'....that sucks....Sad
Amazing Spider-man 45-46: I can't tell if the Sin-Eater build up is good....if the pacing is right...or do I just feel done with it due to the creepy bug guy in Peter's history? I don't know what I feel about this story
Immortal Hulk 36-OH...I'm sad for Savage Hulk!!!
GoTG 5: Um...I feel nothing about or for this title. Why am I reading? Just hoping it gets to stuff I like, I guess?

Wolverine 1, and Cable 1. Cable 1 art is trash. Kid Cable annoys me. Sorry, Millenial Cable would have not grown up in the world his predecessor did. Maybe because I want to know I"ll read it? Wolverine is just an off shoot X-force story. Kinda 'eh' with this.

X-force 7-8 is some brutal stuff for Dom and Piotr. Really interested in maintaining this title! 'we could just sink to the water's bottom and be gone from this feeling.' WOW

X-men 5-7: The Crucible is some messed up s#!t. LIke, wow, really messed up. Like, they are totally removing their humanity from their sense of selves in an event like that. I get the need to erase No More Mutants, but that's the way?! That's some messed up X-men community stuff right there

New Mutants 6-8: I can't find myself to like all of Bobby and NM in space. I just..don't. IT's...nonsense. The outcome of Beak's parents, and the twins mind wipes? Oh man, that's tragic, messed up, and f***ed up. Wow!  This title is all over the place for me.

Marauders 7-9: I don't think I like this book. I think I quit this book. Yeah...I quit this book.But I think I do want to see the resolution of Kate's last adventure...

Oh, and I already quit Excalibur

Yeah Iíve only read one so far and that was back on Thursday.  Went on a Dad/Daughter Retreat this weekend so I have a good excuse for not reading anything.  Iím going to try to at least finish the Marvel list by Wednesday.  Hopefully more.

Okay, so time has past and I am a little less hate-filled regarding that X-Force #14 ... a little less. Still am not a fan, at all, of the tonal shift, but I can see, I suppose, how it still is an exercise in "fun" comic book reading.

Yeah. Sure.

*sigh*

anyway ... got a few more knocked out, but not much -

X-Force #14 - See Above. Or don't. Pfft
Hellions #6 - Interesting, seriously
Cable #6 - Less so. I teeter on how much I "like" this young Cable anyway (not to say I was a fan of old Cable, because I was/am not), but this issue made me like him even less. And as odd as that sounds, that may just be what makes me like him more come later. Confused? Maybe I am too.

Ice Cream Man #21 - I keep getting it but I usually end up not liking it until two or three days later. HA
ScumBag #1 - Ya know ... I'm not sure if I like this or not. Love the rotating artist idea, but the story ...
Barbaralien #1 - This one I did not like. Co-ploted (?) by Lemire, this is not written by him and it shows. It is not very good and may be the only Black Hammer related title I walk away from before reaching the end. Even Walta's art, which I usually love, seemed off. I will give it one more try, but will walk away, easily, if it doesn't "wow" me.
