    I know what you mean about Invincible. I did read the first compendium a while back and flew through it. I've not read compendiums 2 or 3 and I've not read a single issue of Black Science before.

    Snap. Just finished Invincible and waiting for the 3rd BS hardcover to be delivered. Started on Paper Girls in the meantime to fill the wait.

    That's interesting because I bought it for that angle haha

    Read through all the The Boys TPB omnis since Wednesday, only 3 issues left for tonight.

    This series is great and while I appreciate why certain changes were made to the TV show, as so often the source provides the more comprehensive experience. Definitely recommended (although I still need to see how it all ends tonight).

    Finished the two Paper Girls hardcovers. Bought it based solely on Vaughan writing it, and it was pretty much what you'd expect. Very easy reading with some interesting ideas in there. Will probably pick up the next hardcover if there ever is one.

    Just finished the Nance Collins Swamp Thing and that was terrific. It put me in the mood to read early Vertigo so I started reading my Hellblazer Original Sins trade. Better than I remembered. I just ordered the Dangerous Habits trade. I wonder how good the original Delano run is in retrospect.

    Any further thoughts on Nancy Collins Swamp Thing? I’ve been close to pulling the trigger but it seems to have a divided reaction. Some people love it some people hate it.

    I am a big fan of the character, love the original Len Wein Wrightson issues, can't say enough about the Moore run, and I really like the Millar and Soule recent runs.

    It carries on from the Moore run with all the characters and mythology intact. I thought it read really well, nice balance of character stories and good old fashioned horror stories.

    I read some of the controversy on the politics but, come on environmentalism good, racism bad,,, I don't see the problem.
    I think its a good solid run, solid horror comic moments, great new characters to the universe, generally really well written.

    Personally, I like it better than the Ennis run. Then again I'm a fan of Delano's more cerebral writing style in general. If you like "Original Sins", I'd highly recommend the next volume "The Devil You Know".

    While I haven't cracked open my copy yet, I read the run in singles years ago and I really enjoyed it.

    Witchy by Ariel Slamer Ries: Don't let the cover scare you, the art is not as abstract as it seems ( I actually really really liked it). Interesting concept and world building, engaging story, I got sucked into it very quickly and was disappointed when I figured out it's an ongoing webcomics and who knows when the second volume will come.
    Regardless, whenever it is, I'm buying it!
    (also Netflix should buy the rights for an animated series and should develop it like yesterday!)

    Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau: a very wholesome slice of life/coming of age story about a late teenage years boy wanting to leave the family bakery for the big city and another boy (maybe slightly older?) starting to work in the bakery. It doesn't really brake any new ground on the storytelling level but it's a very cute romance story with a lot of baking and relatable characters. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Runaways by Rainbow Rowell (up to issue 31, still ongoing): It really surprised me that a Runaways book by Rowell could stay off my radar for so long. I was just reading her Simon Snow books and somehow stumbled upon this current series and couldn't wait to start reading it.
    I'm a huge fan of BKV's original but any other Runaways after that felt uninteresting and forced (although I've enjoyed Nico and Chase in Hopeless' Avengers Arena and undercover) but Rowell does a great job (along with the various artists and colourist) updating the concept for current days and focuses a lot on the personal aspects and character dynamics.
    I've almost forgot how much I love Molly as a character (even though I can't stand children) and how much I care for these (completely made up) people until this series brought them back to my life.
    Can't wait to read more and if you like good YA fiction and /or Rowell's writing I would recommend checking it out.

    BTW, I'm always on the lookout for good, uplifting (or at least just not straight up depressing) books with diversity and representation, and all 3 of these fit that criteria.
