    I didnít get close to what I wanted to read. Life sometimes just takes over.

    Going to start Wonder Woman Diana Prince: Celebrating the Ď60s Omnibus

    I loved The Last Days of American Crime art!
    The Fade Out is the Brubaker/Phillips book that I least enjoyed, don't know exactly why...

    It was pretty damn nice art for sure, with a decent story. I just read Bloodthirsty: One Nation Under Water and the story was pretty mediocre to be honest, but the art was so damn good. It really emphasises the characters, kind of like everything else is slightly out of focus.

    The Fade Out is actually their only work that I've read, but I believe the three of them (including Breitweiser as colourist) have a good reputation for the others works that they do together (although I think Philips' son takes over some colouring). I thoroughly enjoyed The Fade Out. Is it your least favourite and bad, or just not as good as the rest?

    As I mentioned earlier, I won't get anywhere near some of you cats, but here's my January. Started with several modern titles I found fairly meh, but I enjoyed the older stuff I read later in the month.

    Amazing Mary Jane 1 - Big meh.

    X-Men (2019) 2 - I'm losing interest in this quickly after the two mini series, which really only had 1-2 issues I really liked.

    Fallen Angels (2019) 1

    Conan the Avenger (2014) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - I keep looking for my entry point for Conan, but this isn't great. Struggled to finish the arc. I need to just go the five omnies of old material I have.

    Scooby Apocalypse 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - Liked this, but don't love it yet.

    Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality 1, 2 - Better than the first serious.

    Soul Liquid Chambers (manga) Vol 1 Chapters 1-5

    He-man and the Masters of the Multiverse 1 - Just awful.

    Spawn 301 - Interesting, but no idea what was going on. I assumed this might be a jumping on point, but not even close.

    Incredible Hulk by Peter David Omnibus Vol 1: 328, 331, 332, 333, 334 - Here we go. I've read the first few of these before, but I've never read the lions share of grey hulk despite loving smart hulk as a teen. Looking forward to the rest of the volume.

    Fantastic Four Omnibus Vol 1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - I didn't intend to buy this because I read the Milestone edition of #1 back in the 1990s and found it somewhat archaic. But, Amazon had a sale, and since I already have Volume 2, I picked Vol 1 up. I'm really liking this stuff more than I expected. There's some just off-the -wall nonsense, but it's fun and I'm seeing why people talk about Kirby. I'm 60 years late to the party, but hey, better late than never.

    January: 34

    My third attempt at this. 2018: 700 (and a couple of books). 2019: 626 (and no books). 2020:
    January:
    - Absolute Sandman 2 - 19 issues. 600 pages. Legendary stuff. Loved K.Jones' art and that whole arc is my fav so far.
    - Forbidden harbor by Teresa Radice and Stefano Turconi - 300 pages, ~14 issues. Loooooved the art, story is so-so, too much poetry citations for my taste.
    February:
    - The great death (Loisel and others) - A lot didn't make any sense, no backstory, confusing, but fun and fast read. Enjoyed the art. 488 pages, ~22 issues.
    - Daredevil FM companion omnibus - I enjoyed the original omnibus but this one not too much. 490 pages - 22 issues.
    March:
    - Jeremiah (Hermann) - 12 episodes so around 24 issues and 580 pages
    - Colt frontier (Sergio Toppi) - I dive in in every panel and lose myself in the art. 400 pages, ~18 issues.
    April:
    - The Goon LE3-5 ~1300 pages incl. the sketchbook sections. Loved every page. 59 issues.
    - TWD Comp1 - 1088 pages. 48 issues. It was about time i get to read this. Still missing the last comp... hope i get it soon and don't have to read online.
    - Gamayun tales 1&2 (The king of birds and The water spirit) - Beautifully painted children's books/comics. Recommended for youngsters. 128 pages, 6 issues.
    May/June/July:
    - TWD comp2&3 - 2176 pages, 96 issues. A blast.
    - Son of the gun (Jodorowsky/Bess) - 216 pages, 10 issues. Okayish, nothing special.
    - Rumble vol.1-3 (Arcudi/Harren) - 15 issues, 464 pages. Love Harren's art, but the writing is so-so. Far from bprd level.
    - Alack Sinner vol.2 (Munoz/Sampayo) - 316 pages, ~15 issues. Good but not as the first volume.
    - El Gaucho (Pratt/Manara) - 144 pages, 7 issues - Okay, but not as good as Indian Summer. An afterthought: could it be a far-fetched analogy about (a friend of Hugo Pratt) Oesterheld's fate during the Argentian dictature? Dunno.
    - Legends of Tour de France (some dutch guy) - 150 pages, ~7 issues Boring shit..histort in comic form, but no finesse no engagement..
    August:
    - Jeremiah (Hermann) vol. 11-12 - 6 episodes so around 12 issues and 280 pages. Not as good as they were, but some episodes were enjoyable.
    - Lobster Johnson vol. 4 - great one. 5 issues, 130 pages.
    - Severed (S.Snyder) - okayish, overhyped. 7 issues, 180 pages.
    - Complete Zombies vs Robots - amusing, art too sketchy at times and difficult to read. 160 pages, ~7 issues.
    - Chronicles of Hate (Adrian Smith) - 100 pages, ~4 issues. Love his illustrations/concepts but the art here albeit very atmospheric and cinematic is somewhat difficult to understand at times.. still great. Need to get the 2nd part now.
    - Black Science HC vol.1 - Second read to refresh my memory before continuing to the end. Wonderful, one of my faves. 16 issues, 470 pages.

    My problem probably is that I really love the other books haha
    The Sleeper is one of my favourite books ever, to people that enjoy spy tales it is a must read.
    And of course Breitweiser is amazing, forgot to mention her! Her colours match everything perfectly and I doubt Kill or Be Killed would be as good without it.
    Maybe my problem with The Fade Out was reading it monthly (diferent from Criminal which I read TPBs before getting the Deluxes).

    K went through and updated my totals on my last few posts. I did my math wrong and was giving credit for more comics then I read. So it is fixed and I will be more careful in the future.
