Comixology
Grayson #18 - Love this title - I'm gonna miss it after Rebirth.
Midnighter #11 - Mixed feelings on this series.  Love the intrigue, writing, and art.  Hate sex scenes for the sake of being provacative.   Roll Eyes
Civil War II (2016 Marvel) FCBD #1 - something tells me between this and the zero issue I'll be buying this series.
Justice League #51 - heard you have to read this b4 Titans: Rebirth.  Will be at the top of my stack this week!
Titans: Rebirth #1 - THE COMIC I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.  Going to kill me waiting for that damn JL 50 to get here b4 I read this.
Batman #1 - Rebirth issue sold me.  Let's see if it stands up to the expectation.
Superman #1 - Rebirth issue peeked my interest.  Let's see how this goes....
The Walking Dead #153 - There's so much going on in comic land right now that I forget about this title.  Shame on me!
The Walking Dead #154 - At least I have two issues queued up to read!


Justice League 50 also has the distinction of being literally my LAST pre-ordered Floppy comic.  I still have some Trades on order I'm waiting on delivery of when they publish.
 
But as far as floppies go - I AM NOW 100% DIGITAL!    Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

WOW!  Superman #1 - I LOVE reading Superman again!!!
Grayson 18 - Great issue.  I see this is coming to a nice clean conclusion.
Midnighter 11 - Also great issue.  Also coming to a nice completion.
Batman #1 - Jury is still out.  Not bad but not sure it's going to hold my interest yet.  Worthy of a couple of more issues as this seems to be a setup issue with not much punch.

That was part of the Armor Hunters crossover which I bought in floppy when it came out.

I liked it and I would go ahead and pick it up EXCEPT for that insane price for each issue.  That's $36.00 for 7 comics.  Seems pricey when I basically get them as part of MU. 

Titans: Rebirth #1

When I read Justice League 51 I thought "Uh oh.  This doesn't bode well for the Titans." Since Abnett wrote it.  Fortunately, Titans: Rebirth was a better read.  It is basically a setup issue but I'm glad to get the monkey in the room out of the way.  Still not sure if Abnett is going to be able to pull off meeting my expectations but I'm looking forward to the first arc.  I hope it doesn't suck.

Down to my last two trades for the week.  Star Wars was much better than I remember when I only read the first couple of issues. I rather enjoyed these first 12 issues.  Next week I'm going to catch up on the Darth Vader issues.

Didn't really have a list planned for this week, but here are a few more books that I read that I haven't already talked about somewhere around here.  Grin
Books that I just read as the mood hits. I was able to get through:

Black Widow #4
Civil War II: X-Men #1
International Iron Man #4
Invincible Iron Man #10
Squadron Supreme #8
Uncanny X-Men #7
Uncanny X-Men #8

Yeah, a Marvel catch-up week

I read the first four issues in floppy before switching to MU.  Gonna go ahead and re-read them since it has been so long.  I remember liking Vader the best of the SW comics I read before making the switch.
