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

Cable #12 - Good wrap up to Kid Cables adventures.  Looking forward to Old Man Cable being back.

Wolverine #14 -Meh.  Not bad but not interesting either.  Iím not a fan of the Arrakkii mutants.

X-Men #2 - Not a fan of this issue and I see what Perry was talking about with the weird history from one character.  Hopefully just a blip and the next issue will be better.

X-Force #22 - what is with Marvel and all this plant stuff in their comics these days?  Are they all smoking weed?  Not a good month so far for my mutants.

The X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #1 - I was a little worried I had been tricked. Into buying a new version of X-Factor and this wasnít going to be good.  But it got better as I read it and ended on a high note of mystery.  Loved seeing the original brotherhood together fora page of drinks.  This could turn it all right.

Way of X #5 - Not the way I expected this series to go but a fun trip nonetheless.  The setup for the future wound up being the most interesting part of the issue.

Marauders #23 - itís been on the fence for awhile but after this issue, Iím done.  Seeing Banshee with Emma again got me excited but itís just a guest appearance and the other new characters I just donít care about.

Cable: Reloaded #1 Ugh! Al Ewing let me down on this one.  Turns out itís part of the Last Annihilation crossover.  I hope this gets better.

Wolverine #15 - much better issue and sets up things for the next confrontation. This might be ok after all.

Yes, I signed up for a free trial week at Marvel Unlimited.

Sweet.
Like Jeff said you are set to start reading a lot more Marvel (well, if you pick the good ones  Cheesy Cheesy)


WW: Historia... back in stock!!!

SWEET AGAIN! Let me know what you thought (Again, It will take me another 6 months to read it fully as I have decided to wait for it to hit DCI, still, let me/us know what you thought of the art and perhaps the story overall?)

I am going to skip the entire Devil's Reign by Marvel.

Well why shouldn't you? You can get it all for cheaper in three months when it hits the MU app  Grin
Like Jimmy (and everyone here) has said, repeatedly, they recently did a full update on the Marvel app and it sucks. Sucks less now, will hopefully suck even less soon, but it isn't the best. But once you get into the comics... Yeah, more than worth it.

Just a few suggestions that you should check out, for your free week:
Current titles -
Daredevil - Will tie into Devil's Reign I hear
Eternals - The first issue or two is confusing if you have no history with them, but it hits and it is great!
Immortal Hulk - If you like Hulk (and or are interested in his past)
Moon Knight (stop buying it now and catch up in a few for a lot cheaper Wink)
Thor - Damn good!!

And of course ANY and ALL Marvel comics you have ever wished to read!!! Including some you may not have known you wanted to like Star Wars: Doctor Aphra (the first series). Good stuff even if you are not a big SW fan!
 Grin

Hereís my list for this weekÖall Marvel!

MY GOD!?!?!?!  Cheesy Too much my man. How are you even breathing? hahahaha

Jimmy, yeah, that's a good sized list. That Jeff... I tell ya what... crazy is what that guy is. Crazy  Wink

Way of X #5 - [...] The setup for the future wound up being the most interesting part of the issue.

Agree.

Marauders #23 - [...] Iím done.

Sadly, welcome to the club. Jumped about two issues ago myself  Undecided

Cable: Reloaded #1 Ugh! Al Ewing let me down on this one.  Turns out itís part of the Last Annihilation crossover.  I hope this gets better.

It won't. This was only a one-shot  Smiley It was like a bit of a "lost story" thing. Kinda reintroducing old man Cable back into the current MU by showcasing an older old man Cable mission. Maybe that would have changed your opinion going in, but hard to say as I did know that and I just thought it was a'ight

My list for this week, that keeps getting bigger (and I just talked about how Jeff was reading far too much, but I will never get through mine like he will get through his. haha)

Eternals - The first issue or two is confusing if you have no history with them, but it hits and it is great!

If your not that familiar with them I recommend seeing the movie first.  It really helped me enjoy the end of this series.  Itís not connected but it helped with keeping the characters straight.

Immortal Hulk - If you like Hulk (and or are interested in his past)
Agreed! Read all 50 issues!

Cable: Reloaded #1 Ugh! Al Ewing let me down on this one.  Turns out itís part of the Last Annihilation crossover.  I hope this gets better.

It won't. This was only a one-shot 

What?! Dang it.  What a terrible way to bring back a good character.  Angry

I thought I did?  Actually I donít think I ever thought it got bad?

Black Hammer Reborn #4 - Whoa! I didnít expect that ending! Great issue with more Colonel Weird craziness!

Black Hammer Reborn #5 - Now the world is literally going off the rails.  The more learn the more questions there are.  And now a super villain team? Oh yeah!

I havenít got to issue six yet but it will be in my next ComiXology list!

Dare Devil #32-33 - Man this book just doesnít get bad. Two more excellent issues in the books.  Electra, Bullseye, Dare Devil, Kingpin, Typhoid Mary - great cast and great writing.  Nice plot twist in these issues too.

Symbiote Spider-Man: Crossroads #1-2 - Fun little trip into the past back when Black Cat was Spideyís girlfriend!  One of my favorite time periods!  Itís a bit silly but I enjoyed both issues.

Fantastic Four #34 - a pretty decent end to the wedding of Doom storyline.  This book is hit or miss but this story I liked.

Immortal Hulk #49 - Wow.  That was awesome!  Some really amazing storytelling and incredible art. I canít wait to see how it all ends next issue!

Dang, I missed an entire post Jeff.
Sorry, but here goes now ...

Chew #1
Chew #2
Chew #3
Chew #4 (have had this is my damn library for years. Time to try it... if I get time)

I have the hardcover Omnibusí of this seriesÖunread.  Maybe I should crack it open and follow along with you!

Weeelllll, maybe another time? As you will see below, I read the first couple of issues but just couldn't get into it. I knew going in that it was more a comedy than not and I was also aware of the main characters power/affliction, but while I see the good here (well written, fun art style) I just could not get into the book. I honestly think it is only because I wasn't in the mood for that kind of reading, but didn't know that until I got started  Cheesy
I have had the first 6 issues of this (and many other, older Image titles) for years, having got them way back in the day when I used to buy books because the were a "new Image title", so I will eventually try again, but yeah, just wasn't in that kind of mood so I stopped before I ended up ruining the title for myself.
 Undecided

Nailbiter #4 (Going to reread these to finally finish up this series that, yep, I have had in my damn library for... )

I loved this series.  The sequel was only ok but this you will hopefully like.

Well that sequel news sucks as I was looking forward to it. Thanks for the heads up.
As for this run, oh yeah my man, I know I will like these. I read ... a good chuck of this series back when it came out, but I had to start over with a reread as I can't remember what I had found out and what I had no knowledge of when I stopped around issue #13 or #14. Just another of the many "SDF" (Started Didn't FInish) books I am trying to get back to. Much like East of West that took me how many years? Ha

I do know I enjoyed the first few issues at least  Cheesy Smiley

Birthright #1
Birthright #2
Birthright #3
Birthright #4 (same as previous. Yes, time to get some Williamson read, DAMN IT!)

Well itís about time!

Right?
Another title I have the first 6 issues of and I think I read them all, at least this first four here, but remember very little. I do remember the plot, about the son/brother going ... well ... you know, but I don't remember the exacts and there is so much story for me to discover! I think you guys (you and Jimbo) are cool with how this ended... yeah?

Frontiersman #1
Frontiersman #2 (I heard good things and the cover to issue two grabbed me. This is what I had originally wanted to add to this list, but saw all the other stuff sitting there and decided it was time to do some house cleaning!!!)

Iím interested in this as well. Looking forward to hearing what you think before I jump in.


Will let you know!!

May as well mark the Chew ones off while I am here...

Chew - As stated above, this is a fine title. Funny story and well written with art that I truly did enjoy, but I was/am just not in the mood for this right now. It is sort of like when you want to see a movie but you're not sure what you want to see. You sit down to watch a well received comedy that you have wanted to see but the, ten minutes in, you realize you want to watch a murder drama instead.
Even though this is sliding to the bottom of my to be read list for now, I will return to it someday. It does deserve it.
