To record it all:

Leviathan tie-in and Jimmy Olsen 1-12-loved it! Great, great stuff!!!


X of Swords  Stasis 1 Ugh. This is such...nonsense. I can't even wrap my head around how disinterested I am with the entirety of this story building. Now I'm just 'looking' (not really reading) to keep up for when it's done.

Immortal Hulk 39! Always the best! Simply the best!!!

Amazing Spider-man 51: as I write this, I"m reading it! Check that, EDIT I read it, I just forgot I read it. That's not a good sign...only 10 more issues to go in this 'arc'.

Not getting any of the Future State stuff? Not that I blame you ... either way, just curious as I had thought you may have been interested in a one or two of them. But totally get it if a no

Leviathan tie-in and Jimmy Olsen 1-12-loved it! Great, great stuff!!!

YAY!! I thought you would enjoy it. Loved the entire "Feel" to it. Plus I love the ending with the Planet's ownership  Smiley

X of Swords  Stasis 1 Ugh. This is such...nonsense. I can't even wrap my head around how disinterested I am with the entirety of this story building. Now I'm just 'looking' (not really reading) to keep up for when it's done.

Well start reading because I don't want you to miss what others may have missed ... how bad it will become
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Dude, there is a couple things that drove me absolutely bonkers, in a very bad way, with major eye-rolling impact that are just around the corner for you
 Cheesy Cheesy
That being said, the ending, well, towards the end, it got very interesting. Almost made it worth the money. Now that it is free to read on MU, I think the event will end up being worth it. Not to you, necessarily  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy, but to most readers at least
 Wink

Immortal Hulk 39! Always the best! Simply the best!!!

Nothing to say here other than AMEN and great timing as I just read the last two issues and now I know that I have to wait one more, maybe two more, issues before I go complete MU with this title. I have to get the next issue and perhaps the one after. They have been teasing the ever lovin' shit out of me with this one group that is on the verge of making an appearance (well, an "entrance" I should say as they have already appeared  Grin) and I have been dying to see them face off in this title's current incarnation!!!!
HELLS YEAH!!!!

Oh yeah, not a lot of variety here  Grin merely trying to get up to date on Saga and finish the Jade Giant's current arc ...

Immortal Hulk #42
Immortal Hulk #43
= Love this team. Not sure why, but I do know for a fact I was out of the Hulk title for awhile but back in the mid 80's when I saw them on the cover of Hulk  ... well that one cover  Wink I snatched it up and then had to go back and get the issue prior. Even though I missed their proper first appearance, I thought they were so cool (and sadly misused) that I wanted more. Getting it now it seems. I hope!! And yeah, okay, it was Hulk 277 ... I had to look it up

Kick-Ass vs Hit-Girl #2 - Awesome!  Canít wait for next issues battle royale!

Nailbiter Returns #8 - not as good as the original overall.  At least the villain is revealed here but honestly the reveal was kind of meh.

Redneck #29 - Still good and character reveals were interesting this issue.

Rorschach #4 - this has been interesting.  I like that itís really a new and interesting story about new characters in the Watchman universe.  Similar to the HBO mini series.

Something is Killing the Children #13 - I like the pending stand off between Erica and the mysterious group sheís a member of.  More shockers in this issue and a good build up of tension.

Stillwater #4 - really like this series.  Background is finally revealed this issue.

I picked up the Teen Titans issue out of curiosity about Red X, but not interested in the rest. I know a few of its characters will carryover into Infinite Frontier.

Thor 9 -PERRY YOU WERE RIGHT awesome issue! You said "if you were waffling, this is the issue to wait for!" it's great!!

Deadpool 8-at least it wasn't Bachalo. I only looked at it, didn't really read it.

John Walker USAgent-by Priest! Yes! I'm all onboard!!!

GOTG 8-a very quick, wonderfully written whodunit? mystery. Raccoon was great

X-men 14 and Marauders 14-sure, X of Swords stuff. whatever

Amazing Spider-man 51.1-UGH!!!!!! Again, another issue I only looked at, didn't read fully, but the last page just about made me throw my tablet. I think I'm falling into grognard 'I hate this new stuff!' thinking

I picked up the Teen Titans issue out of curiosity about Red X ...

Cool, I heard that one was pretty decent. Not sure if that was decent by comparison to the others or just on the whole, but yeah, heard it wasn't bad.
 Grin

Thor 9 -PERRY YOU WERE RIGHT awesome issue!

RIGHT?!?! I found it (pardon me for re-using your word) an awesome idea. Talk about bringing gravitas to a classic character
 Grin

John Walker USAgent-by Priest! Yes! I'm all onboard!!!

Me too! I just have to wait until it is almost over to start  Grin Dang memory and all

GOTG 8-a very quick, wonderfully written whodunit? mystery. Raccoon was great

Speaking of!!! How about that new line-up for the team that is coming in a couple months! Love the idea of bringing almost everyone back into the fold from the great DnA stuff (including the costumes it appears  Smiley), but man that is a crowded backfield. And how about the one guy in the green cloak?!?!
Ummm, what???
Link if you hadn't seen it yet ...
HERE

14 and Marauders 14-sure, X of Swords stuff. whatever

 Smiley
Now I stand beside you and most of your feelings of X of Swords so far and trust me, there are issues on the horizon that will be absolutely stupid before it is all said and done, but I found this X-Men issue was pretty decent and just to warn you, it is important to the arc and the future of X. Not that THAT is reason to enjoy it, but I just don't want you to discount all issues of "Swords" or treat them all the same  Grin.
Like the Marauders issue that ... wasn't the best Wink Now yes, it will also come back around though maybe not as much to your (or my) liking.
But yeah, as much as I found some of the upcoming stuff ridiculous and Bendis Rogol-Zaar level of stupid (Oh I can't wait for you to see some of the stuff that goes on down the line!!!!), some of this Swords stuff does have merit. Some of it
