    Only 6 issues in...very meh so far. Basically just a lot of battle scenes and no real depth to the story. Hoping it picks up!

    This week I read Volume 2 of Batman The Golden Age Omnibus, which collects Detective Comics #57-74, Batman #8-15 and World's Finest Comics #4-9.

    Batman doesn't kill anyone in the entire book! Robin seems to get hit over the head and knocked out by a villain in nearly every story. The art gets stronger towards the end of the book, and there are many beautiful splash pages. I was afraid these Golden Age stories would be tough to get through, but I enjoyed reading them and they flowed nicely for me since they are only 13 pages per story. I'm hoping to read volumes 3-7 before the end of Summer.

    I just finished the first two OHC Thor books by Jason Aaron. I read them last year and they hold up just fine. I ordered the rest of the Jane Foster Saga because I am so excited about Marvel Phase 4.

    I am also reading "X-Men Grand Design" by Ed Piskor. This book reads like X-Men 138, The Untold Legend of Batman, Grant Morrison's Batman, Marvels, or Action Comics 500. It is one of those single issue comic stories that perfectly summarizes every moment in a long standing comic book character's history. Every era counts and it all fits!

    There is a great picture of the artist with a "Do the Right Thing" necklace. In the background of the artist, is a complete black and white collection of the E.C. Comics library.

    I can't recommend enough!

    I recently finished reading the first 25 issues of Aaron's Thor as well as the 5-issue Original Sin: Thor & Loki Ten Realms. I'm not a big fan of Thor's but it's a very good solid read and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Aaron has created and weaved quite the epic tale. I'm very confident that his Thor run will eventually find itself in two or three Omnibuses.

    I am reading the Kirby run right now and Aaron's run does a nice job of referencing a little bit of every era and the art is uniformly good. It really reminded me of reading the old Conan comic. The book goes cosmic and plays with Time Travel. It was super fun. I hope the next 3 Jane Foster volumes are as good. They include the Unworthy Thor but I don't think they have any Original Sin books?

    I'm reading the DC Showcase Weird War tales volume 1 and the art is very believable for being War related also the black and white enhances the artwork of Joe Kubert and the other artists. Such a pity that this line of books is cancelled as I am sure that if it continued it would have found a lot more fans of their work.

    I just finished Greg Pak's run on Totally Awesome Hulk. World War Hulk II was a bit of a let down both as a finale to his run and as something of a spiritual sequel to the original WWH, but the run on the whole was quite enjoyable.

    I just started Wonder Woman by Phil Jimenez. Two issues in, and it's solid. Absolutely gorgeous art, unsurprisingly.

    I finished reading Shazam: The New Beginnings Deluxe OHC by Roy & Dann Thomas. The main 4-issue story which retconned Captain Marvel's origin was pretty good and an enjoyable
    read. It was probably slightly controversial for some Captain Marvel fans due to the role Dr. Sivana would now play. The art by Tom Mandrake was ok but I wasn't too keen on how the faces were depicted - quite a few "ugly" faces. Captain Marvel's adventures were continued in the additional stories in Action Comics Weekly #623-#626. I preferred the art here by Rick Stasi and Rick Magyar. Not a bad story in which Billy Batson infiltrates a racist organisation although it seemed a bit rushed. The deluxe OHC seems quite a bit overpriced at $34.99 at only 128 pages and with no additional material whatsoever with the exception of a 2-page introduction by Roy Thomas. The pages are matte and not glossy. I think I may have preferred the latter. Was this material hard to reproduce/reprint? IMHO, it shouldn't have a higher RRP than $30.

    Iron Man Omnibus by David Michelinie, Bob Layton and John Romita Jr, collects issues 115-157.

    Some of Iron Man's best stories.
