    September
    Batman 66 omnibus: (22 issues) Enjoyed it until the final story, as the tonal shift was quite jarring.
    Daytripper: (9 issues) I thought it was a really good read, though not as amazing as I'd been led to believe.
    52 TP 1-2: (52 issues) After reading John's JLA run and now this, I've really grown to enjoy the character of Black Adam.
    Southern Bastards Deluxe 1: (8 issues) Loved it, will definitely pick up the second volume when it's released.
    Batman: Night of the Monster Men TP: (6 issues) I'm collecting Rebirth titles in TP so had to wait a while for this. Pretty forgettable TBH.
    Batman Arkham omnibus: (58 issues) I'm a massive fan of the games but knew this probably wasn't going to be great. Was actually pleasantly suprised as the second half was written by Tomasi and I found it enjoyable. The first half was a bit more average though.

    Total for month: 155 issues
    Total so far: 1678 issues

    Have you ever read Doctor Strange:The Oath by Brian K. Vaughan and drawn by Marcos Martin?
    It´s one of the few BKV stories i have read,but it´s a great Doctor Strange limited series.

    September update:

    Amazing Spider-Man #4-6 (3)

    - Spencer’s run continues to be enjoyable. I wasn’t in love with the ending of the first arc as a lot of the jokes fell really flat for me. However, #6 definitely sparked my interest again as it was quite funny and a lot of fun. Keen for more.

    Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection Vol. 1 TPB (19)

    - I had such a blast reading this material. Not only is it hilariously corny, but the stories contained are surprisingly well done. Ditko’s art is fantastic and he really nails the character. I was apprehensive about the overly-verbose and compressed nature of the stories, but the writing is spectacular. Lee does great work here and manages to squeeze in great plots and great morals in the book. The characters are a lot of fun to read. It’s neat to see how so much of current Spider-Man still draws on these early issues.

    Spider-Man: Big Time Complete Collection Vol. 1 TPB (16)

    - I was tossing up between starting here or Brand New Day for modern Spider-Man after really enjoying the game, and I am happy I stated here. There’s a few mentions to what came before, but the story that starts here is tons of fun. Lots of great nods to the early Lee/Ditko issues too, which was welcome as I had just been reading the Epic Collection. The opening Big Time story was okay, but I feel that all the stories following it were sublime. My personal favourite issues here were the ones drawn by Marcos Martin. He’s able to tell so much story in just his art and layouts, and the ‘No One Dies’ arc was so good. I’ll be continuing this next month.

    Batman New 52 Vols. 1-3 TPBs (17)

    - I never liked this series on my first read through, but as more time passed, I found myself wanting to revisit Court of Owls. I’m so glad I did as I had blast reading this again. I never warmed to Snyder’s narration, but in this reread I found it to be pretty good. Snyder’s writing is quite dynamic and seems rather smart. His storytelling is quite good, and while some of the narration seemed unnecessary, you could see in other segments the meaning he was trying to create, and I’d say it worked. Capullo kills it on art, he really is a perfect fit for these stories. Snyder creates a lot of good horror/mystery vibes too that Capullo excels with. Overall, a very satisfying read. I won’t be revisiting Zero Year, but I’ll try to crack on through to Endgame.

    Doomsday Clock #7 (1)

    - Finally we’re getting somewhere! Loved this issue and am excited to see that the story is picking up.

    The Flash by Mark Waid Book 2 TPB (16)

    - What a fantastic read this was! I was mainly looking forward to the ‘Return of Barry Allen’ story, but the preceding ‘Gorilla Warfare’ arc was also superb. It was just pure 90s dumb fun, and I loved it. Quite a funny story, too. The Barry story was as good as I had hoped, definitely my favourite Flash story. Wait injects so much energy into all of the characters, and the story itself is engaging and full of good twists. I love how Wally really comes into his own. It definitely makes Barry’s Rebirth feel a little redundant. Waid and Johns have done a lot to make me a huge Wally fan.

    Heroes in Crisis #1 (1)

    - Disappointing read, and I say that as a huge Tom King fan. It felt very cheap and hyper-decompressed. I’ll read it in trade probably, but this did not do anything for me.

    Thor: God of Thunder by Aaron Book 1 OHC (11)

    - Very, very solid book. Aaron blends genres pretty well here and I love his take on this grand superhero story. There’s mystery elements, action and sci-fi, and it’s great. The story is very interesting, and using the multiple time periods as a narrative device was really clever. Gorr is a great villain, I really understood his motivations and the way his story unfolded was masterfully done. Esad Ribic is probably the best fit for Thor out there, his art has such a grandiose feel to it, as well as being epic in scope and capturing both the sci-fi and fantasy vibes. All in all, a quality Thor story.

    oh yes how could I forget that! Loved it!
    You should check out more books from him. I know Mr'Orange said he didn't like Y the last man but that's definitely worth checking out. So is Ex machina and Runaways.

While Die!Die!Die! was interesting but will stop reading the singles and wait for the trades. Everything else was pretty cool, and Bully Wars was fun. Like the style and was a good issue!

    20 books so far.
    Mainly from Thor and Batman, and some from Lucifer.
