I got so excited, I started it just a bit early!

I do well when I spend Monday night just reading some comics! A good day (meaning I did work), but at least I can make myself feel better after that!

Guardians of the Galaxy 14 - still setting up things, and I'm good with what's developing.

Immortal Hulk Time of Monsters -boy, glad I didn't pay money for this! Grin  Nothing I really enjoyed about this at all, tbh. Not sure why...they published it?

Way of X 2 - what an issue! David is great! The ending is even better! Kurt's decision in there was great! Everyone pausing one moment when they felt Legion come back. SO. COOL.

Mighty Vallkyries 2 - Um...not feeling it like I did before. Not sure why I don't care for it right now.

Daredevil 30 - Still a good series. Very well written. Matt is infuriating. IF anything, that has nearly always been what Matt has been like. Like I've said before, he truly is blind to the fact he doesn't know what he does to those around him.

Wolverine 12 - Okay, a cool ending, but really, REALLY weird that this is McCoy's plan...

Giant Size Spider-man Annual for the end of King's Ransom and #66; okay, that is has been fine. Good ending for the end of 66 though!

Spider-woman 12 - okay, the ending will keep me around for another issue

He-man and the Masters of the Universe 13-19, Eternity War 1-3 ; it's just my nostlgic love for this is why I read it. I like it even!!!

I keep wanting to get back into this.  Should I come back to it?

Batman/Catwoman #2-3 - Excellent Black Label story.  Reminds me of a Colombo mystery as we know what happened and itís fun watching Helena figure it out along the way.

Man-Bat #1 - I like it! Something a little different for the current DC and good to get the history of how Man Bat came to be the creature he is in Justice League Dark.

DC Connect #16 - didnít see anything Iím dying to get.  Fear State looks like itís sucking up the whole line so I guess Iíll be getting that when it comes out.

I don't...know. I know we're both big fans of the Guardians, and this at least no longer has the stink of Bendis or Infinity War on it anymore. But...it's not stellar yet either. Feels like set up, and it is set up, and only with pieces being moved for something bigger.

But you know what? It's a good place to get on board with; these 2 last issues.

Future State: Catwoman #2 - And now we know how Bruce came back. Decent enough Catwoman story.

Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2 - Not terrible but not great either.  I found the Nubia story to be boring.

Future State: Nightwing #2 - Good action centered ending.  Gotta love Nightwing always!

Future State: Shazam! #2 - A lot of dark stuff here and a crossover to Future State Black Adam will finish this good story off.

Future State: Superman: Worlds of War #2 - the Superman story is the only one worth reading.  Maybe the Mister Miracle on if you just want to.  But the Midnighter and Black Racer stories are a waste of time,

Future State: The Next Batman #4 - I canít believe I made it through all 4 issues.  The main Batman story actually ended ok. The other two stories were hard to get through.  Especially the Ivy/Catwoman one.  It was bad.

FCBD:  Batman Special Edition 2021 - Oooo.  The Batman Fear State preview was good. Looking forward to that.  The I Am Batman story with Jace Fox I didnít care for.  Wonít be picking that up.

FCBD:  Suicide Squad Special Edition 2021 - The King Shark story, while amusing, is not for me.  Iíll pass.  The Suicide Squad Get Joker story could be interesting. Itís a Suicide Squad led by the Red Hood and written by Brian Azzarello.  It has promise.

The Department of Truth #11 - Wow.  Sucked me in again. Really good issue and worth reading all of the dialogue in the letter.  Plus Bigfoot.  Who doesnít love Bigfoot?

Real quick as I am starting to not feel the best (spent too much time complaining about Titans  Cheesy). I will come back to post replies to other posts and maybe talk a little bit more on this list later.

Only have these knocked out since last I posted -

Shang-Chi #1 (2021) - Didn't care for it so ...
Master of Kung-Fu #29 (1975)
Master of Kung-Fu #30 (1975)
- Love this art in this book. So much a Ditko/Steranko flowy, vibe
Way of X #2 - This is not going the way I had wanted/hoped/thought it would
Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 - Hmmm, alternate universe story I guess? Eh, it was okay
Star Wars #13 (War of the Bounty Hunters Tie-In) - No, not really it wasn't.  Tongue
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #12 (War of the Bounty Hunters Tie-In) This was though. Ha

And that is it. Seven books in Five days.
Pathetic!!

Knocked out a couple more last night -

Seven To Eternity #9
Seven To Eternity #10
Seven To Eternity #11
- Not as awe inspiring as the first round of issues, but still enjoying it. I probably could have been stretched out a tad, just a little bit, to let things breath, but no major issues. Oh heck, it also, perhaps, got a little too wordy ... no too ... I can't explain it ... not preachy, but well ... eh, maybe others can put their finger on it better than I.
Also seems Remender is slightly changing the characters a bit and perhaps that was the plan all along, but that seemed to twinge the old gray cells and got them thinking a little too much. Not talking about what our main character chose to do, but there seems to be a certain "closeness" that has occurred that ... well ... anyway, yeah, still good.
Looks F'n great!

The Old Guard: Tales Through Time #4 - First story was good.  Second one I didnít enjoy.  I might drop this series. Itís ok but nothing I look forward to.

That Texas Blood #8 - Oh man, this is actually getting scary.  Been awhile since a comic affected me that way.  Waiting a month for the next issue is going to be painful.

We Only Find Them When There Dead #6-7 - Great start to the second act.  And I love that it jumps almost 40 years to a new generation.

Seven to Eternity #1-4 (REREAD) - Wow! I had forgotten how good this book is and how amazing this first arc was!  Love the art; love the story.  Looking forward to reading this whole thing!
