    Been a while since I've done one of these, and if I'm being honest, I've not read all that much.
    Anyway, here's my updated list;

    112. Ultimate Black Panther #1- I love the set-up of this issue. There's a lot of things going on with this new line that I really enjoy. I'm hoping the momentum can carry on into the next few issues.

    113. Ultimate Spider-Man #2- Again, loved this issue. Some really cool Character moments and I like how each issue seems to represent a month. Shocker being the first Spider-Man villain is just a funny idea to me.

    114. Fantastic Four #23- This was one of those weird 60's issues where Doom has a silly plan that nearly works, but then gets transported into Space. Kind of a confusing issue to be honest. I enjoy it for the cheesy charm and I do know it gets better, but if I were to go into this run only hearing it's one of the best comic runs, I would probably think you're mad.

    115-116- Young Avengers & Runaway: Secret Invasion #2-3- This mini was fine. It's nowhere near as good as the YA stuff that has come before it. The fights were a little confusing and I'm not a huge fan of the art, but there were some nice fun character moments and it foreshadows ideas that will come out in the future. A fine mini, if a bit skippable.

    117-118. Batman #15-16- Honestly, I'm liking King's run so far. These issues feel like a very Bendis way of storytelling, with it being a lot of smaller Character moments instead of anything grand and epic. There's actually detective work in this two-parter and it feels like a bit of breather after the "I am Suicide" arc.
    Overall, a completely fine two parter.

    Year: 290

    My reading fell off this month as I fell into a Civ 6 hole.

    - Afterlife With Archie was great, especially for someone that has read a good bit of Archie comics. Shame it was never finished.

    - I'm on board for all the Ghost Machine titles after Geiger. Really hoping they can stay on schedule.

    - It was cool to see the original vision for the first Alien film. And the first 3/4 of the Omni was awesome, even if it was ultimately invalidated by Alien 3. It hit a wall at the end, including an almost word-for-word adaptation of Alien 3.

    - Weapon X-Men is continuity deep cuts in the multiverse. I always like Christos Gage and liked this.

    - Energon Universe comics are my favorite.

    - Rereading Scalped and enjoying it a ton.

    Finished March with 120 comics book read. I'm enjoying Southern Bastards. The latest run on Blade has been entertaining as well.

    119- Ultimate Spider-Man (2024) #3- Another great issue, it seems my fears on this book are starting to go. Kudos Hickman

    120-125- Ultimate Spider-Man (2009) 1-6- I read volume 1 a while back, and so I thought I may try and get through volume 2 so I can get to the Miles stuff. This arc was pretty good, it feels like a nice change of pace compared to the other books I'm reading at the moment. Yeah, still my favourite comic.

    126-127- Batman vs Aliens 1-2- Honestly, I just like that this is a silly little Aliens story with Batman in it. I liked this issue even through I admit it wasn't all that great.

    128- Spider-Man: House of M #1- I really liked this era of Marvel, and this HoM mini I remember enjoying a lot. It doesn't exactly add up with the main event, but I liked this issue as a "What could have been" instead.

    129- JLA Avengers #1- I just felt like reading the first issue rather randomly, I enjoyed this one a lot. Perez is great on art. Honestly, may be my favourite crossover.

    130-131- Marvel Team-Up #60-61
    131- Marvel Team-Up #50
    I loved this issues, Bryne is a really good Thing artist.

    132- Fantastic Four 204- Was going to read the Search of Galactus, but decided to skip it instead going into Bryne's work on FF.

    133- Fantastic Four 219- I consider this the unofficial start to Bryne's run. I liked this issue a lot too, it seems like a nice prologue for when going into his run proper.

    134- X-Men #1- The original Stan Lee and Jack Kirby issue, yeah, this was fine. Seems like the comic has all the major themes lined out, even if they aren't really explored.

    135-138- Avengers (1998) 7, Captain America 8, Iron Man 7, Quicksiler 10- This was a fun crossover where we see Carol Danvers go on full blast. I actually like the Character moments between her and Iron-Man a lot. The overall event was pretty good. I enjoyed it a lot more than I though.

    139- Avengers 8- Now we are past the Kree crossover, this was back on for being one of those truly great Avengers gems. Liked this issue a lot, even if the panel layout was a little confusing at times.

    140- Avengers/ Squadron Supreme annual '98- This annual wraps up plot points from a prior Avengers arc. I liked this issue a lot, was a very quick read considering Busiek is usually rather dense with his storytelling. Overall, a fun one-off annual.
