I just read Infinite Frontier #0!! Now ya got me excited for the end, Rodney!! Cheesy

I read:

Infinite
Detective Comics  953-966: Okay, this is in the way way back machine to 4 years ago. I just reached the point to discover that Tim Drake is still alive!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy It's shaping up to be better. Although, I still need to,..wait, I'll bring that up in a Superman thread (re: Mr. Oz)

Power of Shazam 7-14: Fun to watch this come together 'back in the day' of the 80s. I feel dumb for forgetting that Freddy Freeman shouts "Captain Marvel!" to be come Marvel Jr. Cheesy

I do want to read Shattered Generations, more Detective Comics, and the current Iron Fist comic up to issue 6!!!


Unlimited
Amazing Spider-man 67   Wow! Referencing the robot clone things of Peter's parents! I hope his sister is one too!!!

X-force 20 - That ol'Beast is something else. This Gala thing is weird.

Deep Beyond #7 - Iím so confused!  But I love it.  Good twists in this issue even if Iím having trouble keeping up with so many agendas.  I may find myself doing a complete reread once this finishes.

Seven to Eternity #10-13 (REREAD) - Caught up with my reread.  Glad I did because I had forgotten a lot of the details.  The battle in the city in the sky was another incredible read in this series.  And the art is still amazing.  Looking forward to reading the final arc for the first time.

Stray Bullets Vol 2: Sunshine & Roses (Collects issues #9-16) - The back story comes to a close. This one tells us how Beth, Orson, and Nina managed to steal the money and cocaine and it did not go as easy as one may have thought.  Also some big reveals around Joey and Rose.  The book just isnít getting old for me. 

The Marvels #2 - Canít remember whatís going on here but the Tinkererís nephew seems to be interesting.

Man Jimmy your cruising through those Detective comics!  Those were good issues too. They should have left the Dr Oz stuff here and not turned it into a Superman story that made no sense.

The Guardians of the Galaxy #13-14 - I like this GotG team.  The team A & team B are good aspects as well.  And we are starting off with big cosmic stuff right off the bat.  Thumbs up for these two issues!

Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #6 - glad thatís finally done.  I guess Marvel is ditching Iron Fist for Shang-Chi now?

Black Cat #7 - hmmm.  Disappointed in this ending.  I donít think the demon would be tricked so easily nor that the Fox would let the deception stand.

Marauders #21 Hellfire Gala - Oh wow.  The whole gala in one issue? I guess the rest are after parties or side stories.  I did like the reprint in the second half of this comic of an old Hellfire gala by Chris Claremont.  A how Shaw took over the Hellfire club story. This was a good issue all in all.

X-Force #20 Hellfire Gala - behind the scenes with gala security and a story that will continue in Wolverine.  My favorite part is the party crasher that Logan has to deal with.  Lol.

Hellions #12 Hellfire Gala - Skippable.  Just a side story at the party where the Hellions crash because they werenít invited.  Entertaining if your following this title I imagine.  Iím not following it so it didnít do much for me.

Immortal Hulk #47 - Ah I like that She-Hulk gets some spotlight here.  Good wrap up to the fight with the Avengers and it looks like all the major players are together. Only three more issues.

LOL yeah, ditching Iron Fist for Shang Chi seems appropriate, with the 2 mini series of Shang Chi here!

Annnnnnd.....

Detective Comics 977-991: I Love Tim Drake! I don't care for the fill in issues quite as much, although I did like the James Robinson fill in stuff with Two Face. that's been pretty good! Only a little bit more before Tomasi takes over, then I get caught up to the point where Tynion takes over 'Batman' and I can get them both caught up to Infinite release schedule!

Also, I thought Tynion did a helluva wrap up to his saga, with the Colony, the Knights in Tim's Belfry, Clayface, Azrael, Batwing, Batwoman, Batgirl, Cassandra, all that!  I was going to say I was going to miss Tynion's voice...but it won't be for long!

Wherein DC seems to take a dump on it's properties. I * miss * Superman. Jon isn't the same, and everyone knowing about Clark and Superman still ruins things for me. At least Grant Morrison is writing him with the Authority! That'll bring me in!

Did he though?

EDIT - Sorry, I misread this the first time.
Thinking you said "nor [the Demon] would let the deception stand - IE: without making Fox pay for deceiving him.
I still disagree about Fox though. Dude was dying and he has been shown to only care about 3 things -
Money
Himself
Felicia
Makes sense to me he would do this, sacrifice any and everyone. A great heartbreak issue, for me

Okay, throwing about about three weeks worth in this one as I have, once again, lost track of what I read when. But don'[t worry, I'm not Jeff (or more recently Jimmy even) with piles of issues read in that span
 Cheesy

Barbaric #1
Barbaric #2
Barbaric #3
- Fun mix of Conan and ... well, picture Conan, cursed with only doing good deeds by his talking, blood-thirsty axe

Black Hammer: Visions #6
Black Hammer: Visions #7
- Ugh ... one more issue. One more issue. One more ...

Serial #5
Serial #6
- Terry Moore making me love black and white comics!!

Seven to Eternity #12
Seven to Eternity #13
Seven to Eternity #14
Seven to Eternity #15
Seven to Eternity #16
Seven to Eternity #17
- Got pretty worried around the issue 14 mark that this was going to go off the rails, but man did it finish strong. Good stuff. I think this may be a shelf worthy buy for me someday as I would really like to read it again.

Nightwing #33 - Another great issue as Dick, well, makes use of ... a generous gift  Wink

I downloaded the new MU app and lost all my downloads and memory of what I had read over the past few weeks so ... yeah

I do know I added -

Iron Man #9
X-Men #21
Strange Academy #11

- to this weeks list of reads.

Also hitting up DC and read some more of the Legion '89 stuff that I had forgotten all about
(and forgive me for not typing all the periods in-between the letters)

Sorry - I wasn't clear on what I meant....
I meant that I don't think that Fox would let Felicia get away with making it look like he reneged on the deal.
 I think he would have made a plea that Felicia duped the demon so that he could still get what he wants.

An aspect of the the new Marvel Unlimited app that is utter junk:

You can't do mass removal of read titles.

The app seemed to draw in information of books I had saved to the reading list over the last 6 months. Now, I'm anal that I want my reading list to look 'clean'. But the app pulled in 50+ titles that I've already read.

It takes an individual click to 'remove from list' then another click to 'confirm removal' , which, by the way can be either be on the main list screen, or you have to go into the title screen to remove multiple saved issues of the same title.

My reading list is dirty. It pisses me off.
