Aquaman: Deep Dives #5, 6, & 7 - Fairly decent three part story bringing in some different elements from the sea.

Aquaman: Deep Dives #8 & 9 - Back to the two-story one shots.  There was a good one by Marv Wolfman but the rest were just ok.

I'm pretty much done with this series now that the regular books are coming back.  It was nice to have something during the hiatus so I'm not complaining.

Marvel’s Black Widow Prelude #1 - Good start to this movie prequel.  I figured with Peter David doing it that it would be good.

Marvel’s X #1 - Really nice first issue.  I've been instantly drawn into this insane world and pulling for the kid David.

Immortal Hulk #29 - It seems like every time this comes out I just say how great it is.  Nothing new here!  Awesome issue bringing Hulk up against some pretty big "problems".  Woo hoo - thumbs up!

Amazing Spider-Man #37 - A nice little interlude between arcs.  Hopefully the magic will keep going with the next issue.

Die #11 - Feels like we are finally heading towards the end of the story.  Maybe two or three arcs left.  I think I'm finally starting to understand this book.  If you haven't read this yet, read in collected form.  There's a lot going on and hard to remember from issue to issue.  But I'm enjoying it more now.

Redneck #27 - Start of a new arc (I think).  Learning a lot of history in this one.  I feel a big final confrontation on the horizon though probably not for a year or two.

Empire: X-Men #1 - Interesting tie-in for the new event.  Hickman does a good job writing the X-Men.

Hellions #2 - At some point I'm going to switch this over to MU.  I'm not a fan of Nanny.

New Mutants #11 - Going to switch this over to MU as well soon.  Glad this arc is over as I didn't really enjoy it.

Wolverine #3 - I like this title.  Definitely enjoying it.

X-Men/Fantastic Four #4 - Good finish.  Looking forward to seeing Franklin more and more.  Just wish they would have left him blonde.  That black hair is too jarring.

The Old Guard: Force Multiplied #1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 - Great sequel and obviously is going to be the story for Season 2 on Netflix.

Marvel Unlimited
Atlantis Attacks #1
Guardians of the Galaxy #1

Amazing Spider-Man #38

------------------------------------------------------

Atlantis Attacks #1 - Ok, I'm on board this mini.  If for no other reason than seeing the old Agents of Atlas.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 - Al Ewing's first GotG issue.  I like it!  It fills like an actual super hero comic and not just some interlude to another event.  Much better than the last series.

Amazing Spider-Man #38 - I’m feeling a bit like Jonah with this issue.  I’m an old man in a young person’s comic world. But I enjoyed it.  I’ll read a few more and see if it grows on me.

Heard an interview with Slott about changing Franklin's hair where someone said it was nice as you can now tell the difference between him and Val. WHAT?!?!

Yeah, not a fan, but I guess as he is a Mutant team member now, the black will look better?
