    Reading Grell's Green Arrow followed by the next volume. The TV show is a mixture of Grell, Wnick's One Year Later and Diggle's Year One mini. After I finish, I'm looking at some DC Star Trek comics.

    I've been slowly reading Uncanny X-Men from Giant Size until current. Started in 2016(?) and flew through the three omnis to the tail end of the Australian issues. The end of Claremont was a slog but...

    Writing for the trade -- put it on Marvel's doorstep. They have the bad habit of taking something that sticks and driving it through the ground. Bendis has always written for collections, even when...

    Not feeling as competitive as last year. Just crossed 134 issues thanks to Mike Grell's Green Arrow run. Enjoyed it more on the second reading much closer to Ollie's age than the first time I read it.

    If you decide to sell the single issues for the trades or hardcovers, hold off as long as possible. There is no guarantee, in this climate, the collections will be complete and if you sold the single...

    Curious that there are no Batman Silver Age Omnibus. I guess if I had a choice of continuing the Golden Age or jumping onto the "new look," bye-bye Bat-Mite.

    Bendis would do fine on a Superman book if he can remain character driven and focus more on Superman's interpersonal relationships more than melodramatic sci-fi fist fighting.

    I have no idea. I'm guessing it's going to be in one fat trade considering the previous story was collected in one volume.
