    Hello all! This will be my third year posting in this thread. I haven't even sniffed the 1000 book mark yet. I've been hitting about 300-400 the past couple years. Let's see what 2020 brings.

    1. Amazing Spiderman 37
    2. Annihilation Scourge- Fantastic Four
    3. Annihilation Scourge- Beta Ray Bill
    4. Annihilation Scourge- Silver Surfer
    5. Annihilation Scourge- Omega

    The art on these books hasn't been my cup of tea, but I love all of the attention Cosmic Marvel has been getting lately.
    6. Atlantis Attacks 1
    Not a great first issue. Just a continuation of a lackluster Agents of Atlas story with a "classic" name slapped on it. Boooo.

    7-8. Avengers 28-29
    9.-12.- Daredevil 13-16
    This story has been moving so slowly, but it doesn't feel decompressed. It helps that I've been reading it in chunks. Each issue is irresistable. I love it.

    13.-18. Doctor Strange 15-20
    Galactus has been popping up a lot lately, but this is by far my favorite Galactus story over the last few years.

    19. Doomsday Clock 12
    20-26. Flash 79-85
    27-28. Guardians of the Galaxy 11-12
    29. Immortal Hulk 29
    30. Incoming 1
    31. Invaders 12- I loved this series. I hope it finds more readers in trade.

    32. Ironman 2020- Horrible. Just horrible. What a waste of a fun idea.

    33. Justice League 40
    34-35. King Thor 2-3
    36. New Mutants 2
    37. Silver Surfer Black 5
    38. Avengers Tarot 1
    39. Thor 1
    40-53. Black Hammer 1-13
    54-62. The Tick 1-8
    63-69. Runaways 1-7

    That's a pretty good start to the year. Forward to 1000!

    How does this work? By 1000 books, is it really 1000 issues? I see people counting issues so I am assuming it's that.

    1000 issues, or pages of an OGN/22, as a standard. It doesn't have to be 1000 though, can be more or less

    Hoping to break the 100 mark.

    February

    Gail Simone Red Sonja #7 - #18 (12)
    Gail Simone Red Sonja #0 (1) - Finished off the omnibus. I would call the run good but not great, I set my expectations too high for the writing so that's on me. The art was fantastic especially in this format

    Fables #63 - #99 (37)
    Fables #100 (3)
    Fables #101 - #103 (3) - Gotten past the point I'd read to previously around issue 80, back when the series was ongoing. My first reading didn't involve the spin offs either, I find myself appreciating it even more with them mixed in. Holding back on saying more until I can reflect on the entire run.

    Jack of Fables #13 - #50 (38) - This got me to laugh out loud more than a few times. Jack is such an ass, I'm chuckling to myself just thinking about it now. Babe the blue ox deviations were odd at first but won me over. Overall I enjoyed the journey more than the destination. Part of me thinks good on them for ending on their terms, while the other part thinks it's an idea that sounds good in in theory but isn't satisfying for readers when you follow through.

    Cinderella: From Fabletown With Love #1 - #6 (6)
    Cinderella: Fables are Forever #1 - #6 (6)
    The Literals #1 - 3 (3) - All enjoyable little tangents that flesh out the Fables world more.

    Thor v.6 #1 - #3 (3) - Haven't read any Thor, with the new run starting it seemed like a good time to start. It's very fast paced and keeping me hooked.

    Total for February = 112
    Total for Year = 210

    Monthly Total - 180
    Year to Date - 491. So two months in and pretty much half way there. A good year so far.

    I read A LOT this month, lots of great runs and some very enjoyable new issues as well...

    Detective Comics 644-646 (3) - the old Electric City arc, classic Chuck Dixon.
    Lois Lane 8 (1) - Rucka continues to hit it out of the park.
    Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen (2019) 8 (1) - Fraction and Leiber too! The Reign of the Supermen riff and the background gags in the newspapers killed me.
    Superman: Heroes 1 (1) - I got it for the Rucka and Fraction stories, which were very nice. But since I’m waiting to read Bendis’s run, I’m somewhat disconnected from the particulars of what’s happening in the Supes books at the moment.
    Superman Smashes the Klan 1-3 (3) - This was absolutely wonderful. I always enjoy Yang’s writing, but combined with the art, I REALLY enjoyed this one.
    Batman: Pennyworth RIP 1 (1) - Some nice character moments I suppose, but I couldn’t help feel like “oh, here’s another mopey and sad issue of the Batfamily mourning a dead character that won’t be dead for very long.” Angst + character flashbacks + RIP in the title etc.
    Nightwing (2016) 69 (1) - Enough with this Rick Grayson nonsense, yeesh.
    Joker: Killer Smile 1-3 (3) - Maybe I’m just not in a Batman-y mood, but this, while great-looking and well-written, also didn’t jump out at me too much. Another Joker-makes-a-guy-go-crazy story.
    Wonder Twins 1-12 (12) - Mark Russell has been a favorite writer of mine ever since the sadly cancelled Prez, and he doesn’t disappoint here. Stellar work with fantastic art.
    Flash (2016) 70-88 (19) - Got caught up on Flash from where I left off. It wasn’t bad but I also wasn’t terribly sad to reach the end.
    Flash Forward 1-6 (6) - How they stretched this to six issues is beyond me.
    The Wild Storm 1-24 (24) - Holy crap this was good. I guess this whole Wildstorm relaunch ting is now DOA? Such a shame, if so.

    Generations: The Thunder 1 (1)
    The Mighty Thor (2015) 700-706 (7)
    The Mighty Thor At The Gates of Valhalla 1 (1)
    Thor (2018) 1-16 (16)
    War of the Realms 1-6 (6)
    War of the Realms: Omega 1 (1)
    King Thor 1-4 (4)
    - Finishing up Jason Aaron’s Thor run... dang. Bummed it’s over but a helluva ride!
    Jane Foster: Valkyrie 1-8 (8) - Enjoying this so far.

    Silver Surfer (2014) 1-15 (15)
    All-New Marvel Now Point One 1 (1)
    Silver Surfer (2016) 1-14 (14)
    - I’d never read a Surfer comic before this, but I love the Allreds and heard good things. It lived up to the hype. Fantastic stuff.

    Invincible Iron Man (2009) 1-33 (33)
    Invincible Iron Man 500-527 (28)
    Invincible Iron Man Annual (2010) 1-3 (3)
    Invincible Iron Man 501.1 (1)
    Rescue 1 (1)
    Fear Itself 7 (1)
    Fear Itself 7.3 (1)
    - I actually never read any of Fraction’s Marvel stuff, my first book of his was Sex Criminals and then I checked out his other creator-owned stuff. How is there not an omni or two of this run? Admittedly, it’s the only Iron Man I’ve read, but it was pretty damn good.

    Uncanny X-Men 193-198 (6)
    New Mutants (1983) 27-31 (5)
    X-Men (2019) 6-7 (2)
    Excalibur (2019) 7 (1)
    X-Force (2019) 7-8 (2)
    New Mutants (2019) 7-8 (2)
    - I think this may be my favorite of the X-titles, along with X-Men and Marauders.
    Marauders 7-8 (2)
    X-Men/Fantastic Four (2020) 1-2 (2)
    - I’m not normally overly obsessive about continuity, but Kitty being dead in one title and alive in others does take me out of the story a bit. Aside from that, I’m digging it so far.
    Wolverine (2020) 1 (1)
    Giant Size X-Men: Jean Grey and Emma Frost 1 (1)
    - Absolutely gorgeous. Been a fan of Dauterman since he did a few issues of the New 52 Nightwing.

    Invaders (2019) 1-7 (7) - Read this now and loving it. Whodathunk when Sex Criminals started that it’d lead to a bunch of great cape comics from Zdarsky?

    Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft 1-6 (6)
    Locke & Key: Head Games 1-6 (6)
    Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows 1-6 (6)
    Locke & Key: Keys to the Kingdom 1-6 (6)
    Locke & Key: Clockworks 1-6 (6)
    Locke & Key: Omega 1-5 (5)
    Locke & Key: Alpha 1-2 (2)
    - After watching the show, I was inspired to re-read the books. It’s criminal how much better the comics are.
    Locke & Key: Small World 1 (1)
    Locke & Key: Open the Sky 1 (1)
    Locke & Key: Grindhouse 1 (1)
    Locke & Key: Dog Days 1 (1)
    - My first time reading this and the other tangential issues but they were enjoyable enough, if non-essential.

    Alex & Ada 1-15 (15) - A very fast read, but well done.
    Sex Criminals 27 (1) - looking forward to reading the whole series once this finishes. Letter column continues to be especially amazing.
    Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues 3 (1) - As a Karate Kid fan from childhood, I was shocked at how good the Cobra Kai YouTube series was. These books, however, are mostly just retelling parts of the original movie with a few extra scenes. But Kagen McLeod’s art is nice.

    Total for February: 319
    Yearly total: 587


    Already more than halfway. I doubt I’ll read quite so much consistently this year, but we shall see...

    Did you like this from the get go, or does it pick up? I'm behind. I have a stack of about two months worth of the X-Books that I need to dig into. I think the last issue I read of New Mutants was when Armor and Glob go to visit Angel and Beak and invite them to Krakoa. I haven't been into the issues so far, after looking forward to this series more than any of the Dawn of X books.

    February update!

    I finished the Legion Quest HC and reach through the Age of Apocalypse Omni. Put me at 54 books for the month, and 85 for the year overall. Really need to get on it to make 1000 for the year!

    Even though I'm not on pace for 1000, I'm loving participating in this project. It reminds me how much I love comics, and pushes me towards dedicating more of my free time to reading over gaming or just spacing out online.


    Thoughts on the books: This was my first time reading Age of Apocalypse since reading through all of Claremont's run. The first time I read it was in the early 2000s. Without the background, I didn't really get it. This time was much better. I really enjoyed it. The world building was great and well thought out. All the individual mini-series were enjoyable, and contributed to the overall plot. I can see why it's so loved.

    There were a couple wonky things. Collosus' story arc was ridiculous, especially the ending. Angel seemed to make a quick left turn as the story wrapped up. Magneto's power levels seem to conveniently spike to help wrap up the final battle.

    All in all, a great crossover and a fun read.
