I read

The Power of Shazam! (tpb) 1985. Jerry Ordway's reintroduction of the character after COIE

The Power of Shazam: the ongoing, 6 months later, I believe, issues 1-6 of 48!

HEY NOW!!!

There's a 3rd vol of 'The Fix!' 50% off, only $6.49! But, if I check the issues....99 cents apiece, with tax, that 'vol' only costs $4.18....

Seriously, who buys the traded digital copies?! The issues are always so much cheaper!! The next 2 volumes I want of Black Hammer, again, way cheaper to do the individual issues!!!

OCCASIONALLY the trade will be cheaper during a trade only sale but that is not the norm.  Your doing it right by going the single issue route!  Much cheaper!

 Cheesy

But jeez, man, good job!!  Cool Worked all day and still read/re-read 17 issues of this dense ass title in one day? Props to ya! No way I could do that and I don't have work getting in the way
 Grin

I do only have two issues left however. So hey, I may finish next week

EDIT -
Of course I still see no new MU titles this week, so I guess I will concentrate on this.

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

Future State: Legion of Super-Heroes #2 - I actually wound up liking this.  Who woulda thunk it.

Future State: Suicide Squad #2 - Suicide Squad story was decent.  The Black Adam one seems to be the one that resets everything.  Does this take us back to normal?

Future State: Superman vs. Imperious Lex #2 - Hmmm. The end said to be continued but Im pretty sure this was the end.  Story was a little too campy for my taste.

Generations Forged #1 - That was fun!  I enjoyed reading how this misfit team came together from across time to avoid a temporal crisis of epic proportions.

Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #1 - a day in the life of Cal Ellis, the black Superman from Earth 23 who is also President of the US.  I liked it.  A decent one shot story.

Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #2 - ok so Roy Harpers back from the dead.  No explanation here as to how but I guess well find out in some future comic.

Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #3 - Jade and Obsidian are back.  These secret files issues are just a reintroduction to characters that have been gone for awhile.  Will be interesting to see where these two show up.

Immortal Hulk 47!! Read it. A weird lull of an issue, to behonest.

Power of Shazam, 6-12. Ah the character's history fine tuned. Very cool. All different now, but whatever ....I guess!!

I noticed they released everything they had listed for next week.  I guess everything gets moved up a week?  Im ok with that.

Im going to pick up all the Hellfire Gala issues even if Im not normally reading a particular title.

I read bits and pieces of the Hellfire Gala. It is/was an excuse to wear bad fashion and allegedly kill Wanda. I am curious about the new Inferno and return of Onslaught.
