    Speaking of Secret Wars, does anybody know if it has been confirmed in or out of the Hickman Avengers v2 omni?

    I think it's very good. It's a story that gives you an insight into the craziness of the situation in Iraq and also in the rest of the region.

    Next on the list was AD: After Death, an odd choice for me as it is written by one of my favourite artists, but collaborating with one that I really do not like. However saying that as much as I didn't like any of the other books created by Lemier I do have to give him credit as the art is very expressive. It is one of the oddest situations for me, I hate the style but have to respect the craft. There is so much emotion in his work, but I just hate it. The story itself though, fantastic. So much character, so much empathy. I would place Snyder up there with Hickman and Busiek as a writer I know will produce something amazing. The story does get a little dense at times but it is so well structured. The ending is just perfect. I am looking forward to reading more creator owned stuff from Snyder and hopefully one day a full HC collection of his Batman run.

    March Reading
    Jean Grey #1-11 (11) - This series is excellent. I'll probably be re-reading it again soon. My favorite issues are probably #2 spoilers:
    (Hope)
    end of spoilers & #6 spoilers:
    (Ghost Jean!)
    end of spoilers
    Phoenix Ressurection: The Return of Jean Grey #1-5 (5)
    X-Men: Red #1-2 (2)
    Iron Fist Volume 1: The Trial of the Seven Masters (5) - Excellent follow-up to Brubaker's run in my opinion
    Iron Fist Volume 2: Sabretooth - Round 2 (7)
    Scooby Apocalypse Volume 1 (6) - This was excellent, really enjoyed it. Fascinating twist on one of the classic tv shows from my childhood. My favorite characters would have to be Daphne and Shaggy.
    Abbott #1 (1) - Pretty good
    Batgirl #1-13 (13) - I know many aren't feeling it, but this remains one of my favorite series from DC's Rebirth, along with Red Hood & the Outlaws. It's just a lot of fun.

    Haven't updated in a while.

    Thor: Goddess of Thunder #1-8/ Annual 1/ Thors #1-4: It's a decently told series, although it does seem like it's trying a bit hard with selling the female Thor.

    2001: A Space Odyssey #1-10: Weird Kirby adaptation that does get some of the spirit of the Kubrick film, but takes it in a different direction, turning it into an anthology series about the monolith effecting change and transformation.

    Dr. Strange #80-82: Forgettable effort by Ellis and Buckingham. Has some wit.

    Nancy #146-150: Fun, clever all-ages stories.

    Terry and the Pirates Volume 1 (6 Issues Worth): This wasn't the IDW collection but an older reprint volume I found in the library. It's my intro to Milton Caniff, and a series with fun, beautifully illustrated adventure.

    Jessica Jones #13-18: Doesn't hit the heights of the original Alias, but it is a satisfying finale with an impressive challenge involving Purple Man, and a fun but meaningful standalone final issue.

    Soft City (4 Issues Worth): Impressive almost overwhelming satire of 1960s/ 1970s consumerism.

    Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin Volume 1 (6 Issues Worth): Nicely illustrated sci-fi epic.

    Elektra #7-22 (Marvel Knights): A relatively quick read by Rucka, and sometimes borderline exploitative, though it is an interesting take on what happens when an amoral killing machine loses her meaning.

    Total So Far: 181 Issues, Six from the Golden Age, Five from the 1950s, One from the 1960s, 14 from the 1970s, 12 from the 1980s, five from the 1990s, 45 from the 2000s, 84 from the 2010s

    Best of the Batch: Soft City

    update:

    Batgirl by Miller TP v2 (13) - This was a fun series, watching Stephanie grow as a hero and being accepted by her peers. Shame the New 52 came, basically wiping all of it away. Plan on picking up the Cassandra Cain collections soon.

    Thor HC v2 (12) - Aaron's Thor reclaims its quality after a dip (imo) during the short pre-SW run. Loki is great in this.

    Action Comics: Rebirth HC v2 (18) - 18 issues Marvel. Take note. I can't figure out why these Rebirth collections aren't more popular, they're a great bargain. As expected, the Superman issues from "Reborn" were left out, but this collection managed to clear up (or a least streamline) a lot of questions the stemmed from the Rebirth initiative.

    latest:
    Hickman F4 55
    Epic in scope and mostly delivers but sometimes the grandiose narration felt unearned and there were a few standalone issues after the first (very good) story that were nothing but set up. When people complain about Planetary having a slow start with the standalone issues at the beginning I would just like to point at this and then guide them back to Planetary to see how you can do a good one shot with decompressed writing. But over all it was a great run and I enjoyed it a lot.

    I know it is quite a beloved book but for me it just did not work at all. Narration, mythology, twists, art style (good art just doesn't fit the book), character designs...nothing. Biggest disappointment for a long time.
    Jerome K. Jerome Bloche 1 2
    fun, quick adventure romp but the main character is a bit unlikable but that's kinda okay with a wannabe detective protagonist who thinks he is clever but just stumbles upon clues. French comics always have that sort of "end then...end then..." feeling to me, as if they were making up the story on the go and that sort of detracts from my enjoyment but I think this was still a good read and I'm looking forward to the 2nd volume.
    Rick and Morty book 1 10
    Captures the tone and the voices of the series and they are really good for R&M withdrawal symptoms Didn't care for the bonus stories though.
    Giant days Not on the test edition v2 8
    Still a nice, light hearted slice of life series. The cartoony art helps a lot to sell the tone and I enjoy every panel of it. Although I didn't really like the inclusion of the early stories at the end of both v1 and v2. They are just not up to the standards of the series. But can't wait for v3!

    That's: 87 issues
    Total: 334
