Die #12 - It took me two days to get through this and even then I stopped reading 2/3rds of the way in and just flipped to the end.  I'm sooooooo bored with this title and I have no idea what is going on anymore.  I'm officially done this time.

Sorry to hear that.

And I'm not saying this is the case for you, but just for me, I noticed after reading the first issue that this is going to be another of those wait on books. I knew that there would be no-way I could keep up or keep interested in this kind of stuff going month to month. I just can't do it.

Heck, other than a few occasions like Adventureman ... I have decided that anything creator owned that is written by Fraction, Gillen, Hickman, Remender and Morrison (and I even apply this to much of his big two stuff as he can get so damn off the beaten track  Grin) I am going to, most likely, wait to read once it is either well into the run or almost done.

It worked so well with Est of West, a book I tried numerous times to read month to month and failed, that I just stopped even trying.

Now I am not saying I will not also get bored or end up not caring what happens or get lost a little with this title, hell, I almost can count on it  Grin, but yeah, I am trying to give myself the best shot at enjoying it by getting through it on my time, not the monthly time.

Oh, and no spoilers, but Plunge ... BAH.
Damn it.

Okay, after more Black Panther thought it is time to move forward.

In trying to get caught up for X of Swords, I am trying to read all the x books I can and some of them again to try and not leave any dangling thread before the big story drops. A story that damn well better be ... better than that Empyre shite  Angry

Excalibur #6
Excalibur #7
- If it wasn't for Apocalypse, I wouldn't even be reading this prior to swords.  Undecided
Marauders #5
Marauders #6
- A re-read of these on MU to get back into it. I like this one!  Smiley

X-Factor #2 - Really dig the art, but Mojoberse is not really my thing  Undecided
Excalibur #8 - I kinda liked this, but still, just meh overall and not worth staying on IMHO
Daredevil Annual #1 - Was told by my guy to get this. "It is important" and while yes, it is, it is also something I could have waited on as I am currently not up to date on this title, even on MU, even though I enjoy it. Concentrating on that X right now, for the next couple months

Plunge #6 - Man, so unhappy about how this ended. It wasn't crap necessarily, just wasn't ... for me?
Dceased: Hope at Worlds End #8 - This was so fun and also scary as
I didn't want to see any of the animals get hurt

Some late night reading -

Batman: Three Jokers #1 - Love, love, love Fabok on Batman! Dude is amazing. Story ... just starting  Grin
Suicide Squad #1 - So we get
the history of two of the new Squad members ... the ones we know, thanks to DCeased, will survive whatever comes next

STDS9: Too Long a Sacrifice #1 - This was darn fun. I needed a good Trek comic and this started just fine
Locke & Key: In Pale Battalions Go ... #1 - My goodness the boys are back! One of my all time favorite series/story-lines returns and off to a fantastic start. Even better, after this 3 parter we get a Locke and Key crossover with Sandman!!
 Cool

Family Tree #7 - Good progression for this new arc.  Now I really want to know whatís going on!

Gideon Falls #23 - More journeying through the multiverse. Iím still enjoying this but also ready to move on towards some explanations.

Low #23 - Another one Iím going to have to reread when itís all done.  I think weíre headed to some finality based on what happened in this issue.

RAI #6 - I just posed a theory I have on this character to Perry and Jimmy and then this very issue makes one think I may be right already.  At least they seem to be leading us in that direction!

Yeah, only 5 more issues for Bithright.

I'm going to start reading his (Williamsons) Flash again when he is done with it, in about 2 more months I think.

Oh, and noticed I put Marauders #6 twice up above. Ha, couldn't remember where I stopped and started  Grin
