Getting a jump start on tomorrow's list since I finished early this week.  My list looks a little lite but I do have three TPB's in there so I didn't want to over do it.  I'm expecting to have some more free time this week so if I blaze through these I'll add more later.

Asguardians of the Galaxy 4 - Ok I'm not sure I can say this out loud...the frog is growing on me.

Black Order 1 & 2 - Now this was interesting.  Different.  I'm staying on this for awhile.

West Coast Avengers 4 & 5 - Issue 4 wrapped up the arc and 5 started a new one.  Not bad but I've grown tired of the lame comedy.  I thought the Quentin Quire and Spidergwen dynamic was fun to read but not enough to stay with it for me.  Others mileage may vary.

Venom 9 - Dang this is such a great comic.  New arc and great jumping on point if you've been missing out.

Web of Venom: Carnage Born 1 - Donny Cates doesn't disappoint here.  He's bringing a rebirth that just may tie into his current Venom run.  Carnage is back and bloodier than ever.

Or at least for three mores issues  Wink

West Coast Avengers 4 & 5 - Issue 4 wrapped up the arc and 5 started a new one.  Not bad but I've grown tired of the lame comedy.  I thought the Quentin Quire and Spidergwen dynamic was fun to read but not enough to stay with it for me.  Others mileage may vary.

Awww, that is sad. I hate that this didn't hit for you. I loved the street sharks  Cheesy ... or whatever they are called Cheesy and this series also had a short life span of only 10 issues. I guess people felt more like you than like me  Cheesy Couldn't even last a full 12 issues.

Venom 9 - Dang this is such a great comic.  New arc and great jumping on point if you've been missing out.

Man I really need to get back on that title !!

Read a couple at the shop yesterday, before getting sick ... oh yeah, I'm currently sick as a dog right now (I wonder where that "_____ like a dog" came from?) and I discovered that I will have to read From Hell all over again once it is collected. It could be I was just getting the chills and the old brain wasn't on point, but I was lost while reading it. I realized later what was going on, to the best I could that is, but for some reason (again, maybe sickness?) I was just confused.

Oh man ... hahaha ... when I say From Hell I of course mean A Walk Through Hell. OOoops. Mind is still loopy  Cheesy

Psi-Lords #1 - Not sure I'm staying on this one. Valiant's latest felt very clunky and the painted art ... meh
A Walk Through Hell #11 - A month away from the last issue (thanks Jeff!) and I may decide to not read that last one and just wait on the collection. I need to read this in one sitting or at least in chunks. I need to get the names and events in my head better. I get the gist of it
FBI involved in burying evidence (sealed documents of a minor) and killing a murderer
but somewhere I lost the characters and what each one did. They even showed why
the guy with the gun to his head from issue ... #1 or #2? ... the one that kept shooting himself in the head ...
and I can't remember why he was doing it. And it was shown in this last issue
 Angry
Again, I'm sick.
 Undecided
(that is my excuse)

Spider-Man Life Story #4 - This one I do remember!! This series is so cool taking Peter and aging him through the decades in real time. Each issue spotlights a story from one decade starting in the 60's. This decade focuses on 90's and we all know what was happening to Peter in the 90's don't we? Yep, the Clone Saga!!!
Trying to remember what the 00's would showcase and I am thinking Ultimate Spider-Man? Maybe?

And damnit, Jeff, quit making it seem like I'm missing out by not reading the symbiote books! I loved them back in the day, but I'm not 14 anymore, they're such a one trick pony, overexposed, and,... and, and well, I don't know, but I don't want to want to read them!

This sounds really interesting.  I'll have to make sure to pick it when it hits MU.

If it helps - I never read the Symbiote books in the past - always sounded stupid to me.  So this is ALL NEW for me!

Fantastic Four 4 - I'm not hating this yet like Perry.  But I am ready for them to be settled back on Earth and for new stories to start.

Gideon Falls 13 - Man, I am sooooooo confused and lost in this story.  I'm going to have to re-read this whole thing I think.

===============================

Transmetropolitan   #42 - Another one shot, comic length article by Spider about the down trodden in the world.  Me thinks this is actually a setup for things to come.

Transmetropolitan   #43, 44, & 45 - Three part story with a surprise ending.  The assistants are sometimes the best part of this series.

Transmetropolitan: Filth of the City - 48 page collection of news articles by Spider just like the "I Hate It Here" issue.  Getting into Spider's head is one weird fun ride.

===============================

Low 22 - Looks like we're heading towards a conclusion.  I see the characters starting to come back together.  All depends on how that cliff hanger last page plays out!

Redneck 20 - Love this book.  The stakes are getting higher, the table is getting set, and any other analogy you can think of to describe that...the plot thickens!

Incursion 4 - Decent enough mini.  Typical tone for an Eternal Warrior story.  Mainly sets things up for the future with these characters.  And I like it.

===============================

Fantastic Four Wedding Special - Bachelorette party by Gail Simone.  Yeah, just as lame as it sounds.  Ben asking Puppet Master for permission.  Not as lame as it sounds but not terrible either.  Hembeck Puppet Master "story" amusing.  Overall - not a must read.

X-Men: The Exterminated 1 - This is the epilogue issue.  Not a bad story with Hope and Jean (and Deadpool) but not much more than a 3 star story.  And you know, I really don't remember how Extermination ended (other than the character death).  Did I miss the ending?  Or was it so boring I can't remember.  Weird since X-Man shows up in......

Uncanny X-Men 4 - Ugh.  I'm not enjoying this.  I don't know how X-Man got to this point since he was so different in Extermination.  It has potential with these characters but I'm not feeling the X-Men here.

Mr. & Mrs. X 6 - And with this I'm 0-4 on the comics I read for this section.  This was so bad I've decided to drop this title.  Honestly, I stopped reading at page 12 and just flipped through to the end.

Maybe I need to add more Royal City or Transmetropolitan to this weeks list..........
