Dare Devil #11, 12, 13, 14, 15, & 16 - GREAT ARC!! I like the parallels running through Matt and Kingpins lives.  They are both lost and finding their way back.  Gang war! New villains more powerful than Kingpin! And Electra!  Nothing but good here!

Now I know I read some comics last week, but now I don't know where that line is now so ... yeah, just posting them all here. It's just easier
 Grin
And it isn't a huge amount of varying titles anyway ...  Wink

Invincible #42
Invincible #43
Invincible #44
Invincible #45
Invincible #46
Invincible #47
- Okay, I am somewhat remembering that this is about where I left off. I am thinking I only have the one issue left and then it will be all new stuff for me. Must've read only the first four volumes of the ones I got
 Undecided
Good for me now, I suppose.

As for what I am going to try and read this week ...

Adventureman #2 (or, as big as the first issue was, this is more like #4  Grin)
DCeased: Dead Planet #1
Dr Strange: Surgeon Supreme #5
Strange Academy #2 !!!!!
FF Empyre #1 (So scared)


Then I have the "Maybe"s -

Ghost Rider #7 (Maybe? Can't decide if I want to wait for MU or not  Angry)

Batman #94 (thinking about trying again, but only going to issue #100 and then go DCU only, but that last issue was so bad  Undecided)

Jimmy Olsen #1 - 11 (Issue 12, the last issue of the mini, hits next week so I may want to get a start on this as I have heard nothing but glowing reviews. May wait, but ... yeah, not sure)

Annihilation Scourge: Alpha #1 - Good start to this mini.  I liked getting the perspective from Blastarr and Annihilus.

Annihilation Scourge:  Nova #1 - Continues from the Alpha issue and I like how we’re pulling in other heroes one at a time.

Annihilation Scourge:  Fantastic Four #1 - Ok tie-in. Wasn’t a fan of the Cancerverse FF.

Annihilation Scourge:  Silver Surfer #1 - Interesting tie-in.  The changes in the Surfer are interesting.

Annihilation Scourge:  Beta Ray Bill #1 - Bill and Lockjaw?!?  Love this team up! Fun issue leading up to the finale.

Annihilation Scourge:  Omega #1 - wanders a little bit but I enjoyed the ending.  Glad they fixed that one thing on the last page instead of leaving us hanging.

Knocked out a couple ... Tried to not read the ones I was super excited for because I was a little too tired last night and didn't want to risk my sleepy-eyes being responsible for me not enjoying something I should have.
 Wink

Dr Strange: Surgeon Supreme #5 - Love this book. Like Marvel Team-Up but with a very long story  Grin
FF Empyre #1 - Well, okay, not horrible at least, but ... yeah, whatever.

From Beyond the Unknown #1
From Beyond the Unknown #2
-
Ghosts #1 - I have to admit to growing tired of the DC digital one and done stories, for the most part, but I, so far, I kinda like these two titles most of all. From the one shot Spectre story here in Ghosts #1 to the Hal Jordan story in the FBtU issue #1 (being blamed for concentrating on Earth too much when he is responsible for the ENTIRE SECTOR  Grin) to seeing MY LEGION in a shorter story in issue #2 of said FBtU, these two titles are perfect for the one and done style. Along with Flash and (of course) the Batman one, I think I will keep getting these ... for as long as they last of course.

I’m going to have to get that From Beyond the Unknown #2. Any bit of the real Legion I can get I need.

Right?
The story was ... okay ... I guess, but I was just enjoying the visual appeal of having the actual Legion (the REAL true Legion not some Bendis alternate universe ... Bend'aVerse, version of them) more than anything. Dawnstar looked incredible by the way Wink

Adventureman #1 - Good start to this series. I was a little overwhelmed with the number of characters. I hope it’s not so many that it stays confusing.

The Boys: Dear Becky #1 - So fun to be back in this world. And wow, it is just as brutal!

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #4 - Kind of boring but I see how this is setting up the new series.

DCeased Dead Planet #1 - Much better than Hope at Worlds End.  I really liked this issue.

I had the same problem. The issue was about 3 times the size of standard and while that was a good thing, it did try and still cram too much into the first issue, especially the family aspect. You can quickly show us and then get to them as need be, we don't need to know every character in the first issue.
I will say that issue #2, the only comic I have read recently, did do a much better job of slowing the process down.
I do wish they showed a different method of when we are in the past/alternate stuff and the now/current stuff though. But it isn't bad ... just wish they would make it look different somehow.

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #4 - Kind of boring but I see how this is setting up the new series.

BLASPHEMY !!  Cheesy Cheesy
I still have yet to read it, but I will keep that in mind. Although I like the title more than you seem to anyway, so I am hopping I won't get the same feeling from it.

DCeased Dead Planet #1 - Much better than Hope at Worlds End.  I really liked this issue.

Still slamming Hope at Worlds End? Man, leave that title alone!!! You are going to take the "hope" away..
 Cheesy Grin

Again, only read one issue since last time so ...

Adventureman #2 - As I said above, the pacing is a little better in this issue. Love the
"The Shadow" homage with the building looking so different

Decorum #2 - I completely forgot what issue 1 was about. Fortunately it came back to me about halfway through this read.  It’s still confusing but that’s normal at the start of most Hickman books.

Die!Die!Die! #10 - Not sure if this needed to keep going or not.  But the thought of a confrontation with the evil brother is keeping me interested.

From Beyond the Unknown #2 - Kamandi story was ok for a one and done. The Legion story I enjoyed just because I got to see Wildfire and Dawnstar again! I also liked the trickery that occurred because more Legion!  Really made me mad that Bendis screwed up what should have been their return.

Lazarus: Risen #4 - Another great issue.  Rucka knows how to develop characters.  I wish this came out more often.
