    Latest:

    Avengers Stand off15
    Slightly above average but entertaining, except for the Howling commandos issue. That was just horrible. Also I always enjoy Daniel Acuna on art.
    Astonishing Ant-man18
    Really enjoyed this, these type of stories are where Spencer really thrives. B and C list f@#k ups with some good personal drama and fun interactions. Art is mostly consistent too.
    Thanos wins5
    Thought I should check out this Donny Cates guy and daaaaamn.... I never really gave a hoot about Thanos but this was a super fun read. Good art and the introduction of Cosmic Ghost rider, who on paper sounds like the worst idea ever but I just loved him in this!
    Cosmic ghost rider: Baby Thanos must die6
    Cates ups the ante and the crazy shenanigans, I don't want to spoil anything but this is the type of story that perfectly fits time travel and alternate timeline plots. It feels significant but can go all the way out there with its ideas.
    Can't wait for the sequel and wanna read more from this Cates guy.
    Black widow (Edmondson-Noto)18
    Heard really good things about this but it was just flat and muddy. Don't even know what the main bad guy wanted or why. I feel like Edmondson wanted to go for a low key, Greg Rucka type story but just didn't manage to write it as interesting as Rucke would.
    At least it was fast paced and Noto is always good on art.
    Luisa10
    30 year old woman meets her 15 year old self. Questions of life decisions and sexuality arise.
    Really liked this one, kind of like a reverse take on A distant neighborhood with a heavy lesbian theme (denial of sexuality mostly, nothing graphic). Great art too.
    Kate Bishop Hawkeye (Kelly Thompson) 16
    Kate Bishop was my least favorite part of Fraction's Hawkeye (which I liked a lot) but Thompson makes her work in her own title. The art is not as interesting and innovative as Clint's series was but the writing is more consistent and less "in your face quirky" than Fraction's (whom I like).
    Shame it ended after 16 issues I could have read her more.
    Gwenpool26
    This is so much better than it has any right to be.
    Kinda starts out very irritating then becomes very likable and kudos to Hastings for pushing the limits of the concept.
    Only thing I didn't like was all the fill in artists. This title needed a very specific art style to work and some of the other artists were not just bad but downright amateurish.
    All-new Wolverine 35
    Once again, inconsistent art ruins a great series. Should have stuck with David Lopez.
    Fast paced, great cast (Laura has her own tiny clone and a pet wolverine....and they are awesome) not very subtle but it's an action series about a stabby superhero so we get what we get.
    Laura should have stayed Wolverine.
    Sunstone22
    Re reading this because I loved it the first time a lot.
    Also loved it the second time. The new series (Mercy) can't come soon enough!

    That's 155 issues
    Total so far: 588

    Best of the batch: Cosmic Ghost rider and Sunstone

    Punisher Max Omnibus 2: (26 issues) This may be my favourite Ennis run, really enjoyed it.
    BPRD Hell On Earth HC 1-5: (80 issues approx.) I'd already read the first couple, but really enjoyed binging the whole thing.
    Walking Dead TP 31: (6 issues) The series has had its ups and downs, this volume was one of the most enjoyable in a while.

    Yep ...like I said at the beginning of the year..All hell has broken loose I'm my life and my reading has massively dropped...but this is for me and what little I read entertains me and gets me through so I guess that s what really matters...

    Green Arrow (Vol. 2) (1987) # ' s 21 - 38 (18 issues)

    Doomsday Clock # 9 : wow this book kust kicked up into high gear. Pretty much the whole DCU was here and you get references to classic DC continuity. Frank's art is amazing as ever as well.

    Young Justice (Vol. 2) (2019) #' s 3 - 5 (3 issues)

    Justice League (Vol. 4) (2018) # 19- 23 (5 issues)

    STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: MIRROR BROKEN (2017) #'s 1 - 5 (5 issues) this was a great take in the TNG crew through their mirror universe counterparts. The Tipton s really captured the characters voices and Woodward art was amazing. This books made wish that the mirror universe had showed on the series itself.

    The Batman Who Laughs The Grim Knight # 1:

    Snyder and Tynion iv and edward rizzo are on fire here! Channelling their best works mixed with Frank miller s 100 bullets and sin city ! All this and I haven't even read the Batman who laughs mini yet!

    Suicide Squad :Rebirth (2016) # 1 Suicide Squad (Vol. 5) (2016) # 1( 2 issues)

    Babyteeth #'s 1- 14 (14 issues) : wow Donny Cates is becoming one of my favourite writers with his dark /horror style here and in Venom and I can't get enough!

    A much better month, albeit it still slow. I came out as trans this month and my family has not been great, plus other issues going along with it, so I've been floating through it to be honest. As a result, I'm actually struggling to enjoy reading because I can't relax. It makes me very sad because reading is such an important part of my life. I hope this changes, I want my passion for books back!

    I haven't been recording comics I've read this year, and the summer seems a good opportunity to change that. My goal is 1,000 comics/ 50 graphic novels (defined loosely as OGNs or collections of material that aren't complete issues.)

    Thor Annual #6: A generic bronze age adventure notable as a prelude to the Avengers Korvac Saga.

    Avengers #167-168, 170-177: One of the highlights of the Avengers and bronze age Marvel. It starts out as decent material (art by Perez, dysfunctional superheroes) that combines a cosmic threat with the mundane challenges of bureaucracy (as Gyrich strips the Avengers of their A-1 status) with tremendous final twists.

    Avengers Annual #7/ Marvel Two in One Annual #2: From the same Marvel Masterworks volume as the Korvac Saga. This is the showdown with Thanos that had a tremendous influence on the MCU, and tied up the Warlock saga, while still providing satisfying action for people who are interested in the bigger Marvel mainstays.

    Heroes in Crisis #1-9: The controversial event book has some good ideas and psychological depth, but the characters end up being too sprawling for what should be a smaller story.

    Wolverine #170-172: One of the most recent additions to the Digital Unlimited series is a bland Wolverine in Canada story, not elevated by one of the more pointless 'Nuff Said issues (from Marvel's silent month.)

    Hulk Nightmerica #1-6: Nice painted art in a 1970s style story of Bruce Banner wandering into weird stuff in post-9/11 America. Not revolutionary, but solid.

    Ultimate Origins #1-5: This mini-series reveals some of the big secrets of the Ultimate U. The central twists are satisfying, although some of the side stories not so much (Peter Parker's connection to the Hulk.)

    JSA #1-5/ Secret Files: Solid reintroduction to the Justice Society, influenced by co-writer James Robinson's nostalgia for the American past. Sets up an interesting status quo for when Johns takes over.

    The 'Nam #52-53: This Frank Castle in 'Nam story is a satisfying showdown between opposing snipers, although it doesn't provide a sense of what kind of title the book usually is (Is it a war anthology? Are there any recurring characters?)

    The Magic Order #1-6: Millar's R-rated take on magic is fun, with beautiful art by Coipel. There is a throughline with some characters to care about, although many of the rest just blend into the woodwork.

    Pax Romana #1-4: Hickman's follow-up to The Nightly News is a great take on alternate history with a lot of high concepts, and interesting clashes of ideas and bullets between people in a position to change everything.

    BRPD 1946 #1-5: Creepy prelude to Hellboy, in an interesting setting (Germany after World War 2 when the results of weird experiments are on the loose) but with some relatively bland protagonists.

    Sojourn Prelude/ #1-24: Beautifully illustrated fantasy saga (Greg Land at his peak worked quite well in this genre). Has decent protagonists, a nasty villain, a compelling central mystery, a decently constructed mystery and some depth.

    Total So Far: 83 single issues, 0 graphic novels

    Best of the batch: Pax Romana. It's a great example of comics as a medium for exploring ideas.

    Amount of comics read this year : 0

    Decided I'd get back into comics after a while away, check out the new storylines and what my previous favourite creators were up to. Apparently Hickman is doing X-men now?

    Don't know if I'll hit 1000, mostly because there is only about 200 new books I've found that I want to read, but when people mention Pax Romana I'm always keen for a re-read. So will see what happens, a Hickman re-read could be a goer.
