Man, I've over drugged myself today I think (always happens when I do my damn taxes  Cheesy) so I am not 100% sure if I will keep this list as is or go off in another, slightly different direction once I wake up in about 5 hours Cheesy but for now ... trying to keep this to ten or less each week. Add to it if I need/want, that way I don't feel that damned self-imposed pressure of rushing to get things read  Cheesy.
(And Jeff, please let me know how that Noir hits!!)

*******************************************

Infinite Frontier - Ugh, my excitement for this series took a slight dive in issue #4, but issue #5 was a pure mess. Clunky as hell and not enjoyable at all. Then, to top it off, issue #6, the last issue, which is extremely late from its original on-sale date (there is a caption about something coming in November 2021  Cheesy) just seems unimportant... even though they try so hard. I don't know, I guess its fine. Sure. the last few pages were interesting anyway. I await the next Crisis

Inferno - This on the other hand blew me away. Makes me mad as hell that Marvel screwed what could have been, but still enjoying what we have from Hickman. I actually wouldn't mind going back through when this is all done and re-read JUST the Hickman penned material as it's Just. So. Good.

Because HIckman's X-stuff was so deep and strong, he had me reading tons of X-stuff from other writers, often disastrous results (Wolverine on a fucking runway for one  Angry Roll Eyes) so I am curious if Gillen will get me back those other X books again? I only plan on reading his title, but I am curious if I get taken again

Inferno #3 - Why couldnít they have left the X world like this? Hickmans long game pays off. Canít wait to see where this goes next.

Fantastic Four: Life Story #5 - At least this was better than the previous issues but still  just a lot of lost potential.

Damn Marvel Unlimited is once again proving that their name for that app is not correct. Comics Presents, a comic I was only reading for the 10 part Wolverine story at first, shocked me by ONLY having the wolverine story in the next few issues. Marvel Limited it seems would be a more appropriate name. I wasn't blown away by the other stories that were included in that first issue, but to not have them in the following issues, considering they were "to be continued" in said issues, sucks ass. WTF?!?!

Again, I was truly only interested in the Wolverine story, had planned to stop reading at issue #10 (the last issue of the wolverine story) anyway, but to not have the option to make that decision? And I double checked to see if it was a rights issue (as maybe issue 2-4 had a Rom or a Micronaut story for example), but it seems that answer is no. So unless they show up INSIDE the stories (and I can't check to verify that as I can't see anything past page #9), then I am really confused by this.

Oh well, maybe I will stop reading the rest of those now in a silent protest while I contact Marvel to try and find out what the what is about what?

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

The Nice House on the Lake #4 - Whoa.  The plot gets even creepier. More questions without answers up we must be getting close to some now. I canít imagine anything crazier than this issues discovery.

Batman/Catwoman #7 - the pacing is starting to get too slow.  Donít get me wrong, Iím still enjoying this title and this issue had some interesting events but Iím ready for some more action.

Suicide Squad #7   - And Iím done.  Iíll be back for the big Earth 3 War crossover but Iím not sticking around for anymore of this. Blech. I hated this issue.

Infinite Frontier #6    - Weíll the main battle itself kind of sucked.  But the after effect ramifications could be very good. Or they could botch it. Lol.  I guess weíll just have to wait and see.

Suicide Squad: Get Joker! #2 - I liked this better but it also dragged on for the first half of the book.  Really picked up midway through though and ended with a lot of action.  Iím in to see how this mini ends.

Suicide Squad 2021 Annual  #1 - Well dang it. I read these out of order.  No wonder I hated issue 7.  The whole time I read that I felt like I was missing something and thatís because it all happened here.  This issue was pretty darn good.  And now Iím back in.  I do want to see how some of these threads wrap up.  Hopefully issue 8 will be more like this!

Titans United   #7 - Bit of a sappy ending but I still loved seeing these Titans together. (See what I did there?)

Redneck #32 - oh man what a horrific twist.  The road to the last issue is bloody.

The Silver Coin #9 - This one was just ok.  It did have one twist I didnít see coming which gave it an extra point in my book.

Time Before Time #10 - This just gets crazier and crazier with every issue. I truly have no idea how this going to end. And even though Iím not a fan of the art, I do like this comic.  I wish this came out faster!

When IS the last issue of this, if you know? Don't want to pick up this arc if it is ending soon. Would rather wait on the trade (if I can get it cheaper)
