    Thanks for the reply. Exactly what I was looking for. I really hope it doesn’t take forever for Marvel to collect it. I will probably wait as I really don’t want to pay more than $200 for the Colossal King Conan and that’s not going to happen as it’s going for much more than that usually. At least I have the Conan epics to look forward to and the Conan Reader I just got. Paid $60 for it but it’s great content so was worth paying double. Also read Conan Original Marvel Years Omnibus Vol 1 but I didn’t enjoy it. Didn’t live up to the hype for me. I think for a lot of people it’s just for nostalgia’s sake. Conan under the limitations of the Comics Code of the time is just too neutered. It wasn’t for me but hope others enjoy it. Haven’t read Savage Conan yet but think that will be more to my liking.

    Jessica Jones (2nd Bendis- Gaydos series): Other than JJ being integrated more into the main Marvel continuity, this very much felt like the original series (which I've read once about 4 years ago, but really liked it).
    If you liked that you can probably just jump right into this one, there is a bit of a time gap where her and Luke had a kid who is 2 now but other than that it's good old Alias and I loved it (also the Bendis dialogue felt toned down, which is good).

    Kelly Thompson's Jessica Jones: Thompson manages to keep the tone and the characters consistent but I'm not super crazy about the art. It looks pretty but it gradually devolved into a Mike Deodato Jr like style where it feels like the artist is tracing 3D models (or using them as a template, calling it tracing is a bit harsh) and it made the characters look artificial and stiff.
    Also they retcon an important bit from Bendis' run which I wasn't crazy about but other than that it's a fun series with the highlights being Jessica's interactions with Elsa Bloodstone and Emma Frost.

    About halfway through snyders Batman omni, Iím enjoying it more than the Morrison Batman I have just finished, but I think Iím suffering a bit from Batman burnout, which doesnít bode well as my next reads are Batman Black and White, Batman and Robin by Gleason and the Batman Eternal omnibus.

    As a side note, the binding on the synder omni is absolutely awful, almost impossible to read at times as itís so tight, terrible stuff

    I am currently running through a huge Batman reading order, starting with the "Birth/Son/Bride of the Demon" stories and Morrison's Batman. I am currently at Death of the Family, bouncing between Snyder's Batman Omnibus, Tomasi's Batman and Robin Omnibus and (currently) Joker: Death of the Family HC.

    Once I finish Death of the Family I will probably break off from Batman and move on to Hellboy Library Edition Vol 1 and 2 (although I know that will just lead to buying 3 and 4 and more)!

    Good luck guys. I LOVE Batman myself but it’s difficult to go straight through and read a ton of it at a time. Definitely need to take a break in between and sneak in some other stuff, preferably non-superhero or non-Marvel/DC.

    Agree there. I have broken it up about 10 times with other stuff. I also have this Lone Wolf and Cub Omnibus 1 sitting here calling my name...

    Halfway through the Ex Machina omnibus and really enjoying it. Like the political stuff even more than the superhero stuff. I guess it's fair to say (after reading Saga and now this) that BKV knows how to write

    I've been sampling various DC titles from the New 52 and Rebirth era - with the result that I'm now ready to either abandon DC completely or at least go back to their 80's/90's stuff... it's a shame though, because some of it really started off hot - but then completely fizzled out into an outright disaster. Like N52 Superman/Action Comics. Holy s---...

    Yeah, it's a shame, I was looking forward to it for a long while, but after seeing the vids there was no way I was paying for that kind of terrible binding.

    Tearing through Black Science by Rick Remender. I'm on v4 right now, and it's a rip-roaring good time.

    Avengers Arena and Avengers Undercover by Dennis Hopeless:
    I don't think I've ever read anything from Hopeless before, but these two series made me want to seek out more of his stuff (oh hey he wrote Spider-man...Greg Land on art...riddled with tie ins...nevermind).

    Arena is an obvious cash in on the Hunger games craze that was going on at the time, but it's well written, I cared about the characters (more than I did in Avengers academy with those set of heroes, but I really should go back and give that series another read) the art is mostly good, especially Kev Walker, and Hopeless is not afraid to shake things up a bit.
    Also they explain why it's a Hunger games/Battle Royale rip off. But even if they didn't I think that concept is strong enough to work with teenage superheroes (especially with the added drama of them being basically sworn to be the good guys and then slowly watch them turn against each other).
    Undercover is a good sequel, maybe not as good as Arena but it's still engaging and I would like to see this group of kids forming a team and having some further development (make them the new Runaways maybe, although that ship has probably sailed by now).

    I am re-reading Stray Bullets Uber Alles and re-watching The Wire. Stray Bullets is a brutal world and the characters feel real. The book takes off from issue 1. Issue 6 introduces the character Amy Racecar and I have forgotten how inventive this book was, but I remember the sense of menace.

    The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. I’ve owned it for 30+ years and never read it before. Enjoying it so far through chapter one.
