    Getting close to finishing Uncanny X-Force Omnibus by Remender.

    I was looking forward to this for such a long time as I missed the original printing...It's enjoyable. However, I was expecting more based on all the hype.

    I finally got a pretty nice copy of Popeye Volume five! Too bad my volume one was trashed in my move last week. From "POPE" to "OPEY"

    The last three TWD books are en route, as are the last two associated novels. Once I finish this Barnaby novel I will read TWD (last time I read it there were only 100 issues I think, and I didn't even know about the novels) and possibly take a break to read Simone's WW omnibus

    Currently reading Scalped by Jason Aaron. Am about 13 issues in and it is really great. I hope it will stay as good throughout.

    While social-distancing, I have finally decided to read the entire Lee/Kirby run of Fantastic Four. I’m 32 issues in, and it isn’t nearly as hard a read as I was expecting. Plus, it seems to get better the further in I’ve gotten. I have issues 1-62 in the Epic format, and will probably read the rest digitally.

    I had a really hard time to get through the first omnibus, i.e. the first 30 issues or so. The second omnibus was already an improvement but I found lots of it to be still very silly. It has really put me off of reading any other Silver Age material, which is a pity because I have all of Silver Age X-Men, Avengers, Spider-Man, Thor in omnibus format.

    Maybe one day I will gather my courage and start again but I am starting to have shelf space issues so I may just sell some of that stuff.

    the only Silver age material I could get through was Doctor Strange.
    I know it's a polarizing run but there was something to it that held up throughout the decades more than any other of the famous runs.
    I can appreciate the inventiveness of ASM or F4 but you have to put on your "it's the 60s and I'm a 10 year old who never seen anything like it and most of my intellectual stimulus before came from watching the Lone ranger on a black and white tv and playing with a wooden train" glasses.
    Strange felt old and cobwebby but it had a certain energy and mystic atmosphere ingrained into it other books (for me) didn't.
    Also while I respect the heck out of Kirby, I think Ditko's art is just easier to read for a current audience.

    This resonates with me too. I haven't read any of the F4 from that era but I flew through Dr Strange, but struggle with Spider-man, despite him being my favourite character. I really had to push through the first omnibus of ASM and still have volumes 2, 3 and 4 unopened on my shelf because I can't muster up the energy to read them.

    That's exactly what's keeping me back. I think between FF omnibus 1 and 2 it took me 2 years. I would really like to have all that background / historical knowledge when reading modern runs but I'm afraid that it may take me years to get through.

    Let's see. maybe it also differs from title to title.

    Almost finished up with Avengers Epic: Operation Galactic Storm.

    Then I will jump into the next two volumes (Fear The Reaper & The Gatherers Strike).

    I thought it got better. I read it when the single issues came out and was so impressed. I'm hoping they produce an Absolute Edition at some point.

    You’re right it does get better. I’m somewhere in the high 30s or even low 40s now and it’s amazing. I think there’s been at least 5-6 issues now on supporting characters or even stand-alone issues and they are just as good and flesh out the world. One of the best series I’ve read so far.

    Punisher: Back to The War Omnibus Overall 4/10

    I will give special long review to the first appearence of Punisher in The Amazing Spider-Man.

    It had its logical gaps like Spider-Man's spider sense thingling when Punisher tried to shoot him from a roof top but later on Punisher's wire gun, Jackles Attack from behind with his poisonuns or something claws and no spider sense... what are you gonna do, it's comics. Spider-Man kicks and punches punisher... that should probably kill punisher, i don't think as a normal human, he can take a punch from Spider-Man and so on but it sure was fun.

    I never thought Punisher had a code of honor at the begining... He had more like whatever it takes to job done kind of attitude in punisher comics... But here, he's very conserned that he didn't kill spider-man in a honorable way... again... comics... lol I don't like Soldiers but i can see myself play grab ass with Punisher. jk I always wanted to read this first appereance, and i don't approve punisher's ways but oh boy, as a guy who grew up with 80s action films, does punisher pull me in ! I sometimes miss watching something one man army like a Stalone, Arnold or Ludgerin film, and Punisher is my go to thing to read at times like this. Just don't take it serious and no real humans hurt in the making of this comics makes it ok.

    Parker had a social life and a fun personalty with soon to be a girl friend who loves to have fun (Marry Jane) That was different from DC... Batman for example usually has no social life... He's all about the mission. Then again i like that better 'cause you need to be bat ---- insane to be a vigilante. lol

    Parkers interaction with JJ. and other Daily Bugle workers were really fun to read, I have never seen a worker at Daily Planet have any deeper relationship than Parker had with Daily Bugle workers. A girl said to parker '' i know we are not close like we used to but i want you to come to my party parker'' I have never seen anything this level in DC. If these characters had a close reletaionship, and now, they are not so close but the girl shows some efford to go back to old days with his friend Parker, that's very extraordinary for a comics, a different flaivour than DC.

    I haven't read so many spider-man for long time... Marvel put all the punisher appearances in spider-man in to the back to the war omnibus... This is not what i signed up for... i just want to read Punisher. I wish punisher just put a bullet in to spider-man's head and save me from this torture... lol

    It was fun at the begining. I have never read this much old spider-man issues before... but later on spider-man and spider-man again kind of made me sick and tired of spider-man.

    They always misundestand each other and fight in spider-man... First Punisher and now Nightcrawler...
    after a big fight, they start to talk '' you are the killer !'' ''no, you are the killer'' '' wait a minute i thought you were the killer, oh golly, sorry for beating the crap out of you'' .... why can't you just sit down and talk, god damn it...lol

    And i finally came to the Daredevil vs Punisher issues of Frank Miller... I read the first issue and it was so good... After all the crapy spider-man stories made me wishing for corona...to just end my missery... lol Frank Miller came to my help.

    Top notch art and writting. I forgot how good it was after all these years... It restored my faith in superhero comics again.

    after Miller DD, there came another Spider-Man & Punisher team up... this time i didn't bother to read all of the issue, i just read Punisher's lines, and it wasn't half bad.

    Finally the Punisher's first mini, but what a dissapointment it was, punisher played right into the hand of Kingpin like an amateur. He started a gang war... as a result of this, Punisher was responseble from the death of so many innocents... I was just like, what a load of crap, Punisher acted like The Spoiler in The Batman: War Games... lol

    Overall, not the brightest Punisher Omnibus ever... It's the best for everyone to Just stick with Ennis.

    I've been reading Powers by Brian Michael Bendis. On Volume 4. LOVING it!

    I'm also reading the first JSA omnibus. It's fun but as someone who is not that well versed in DC history, reading something that is so entrenched in DC continuity is strange. I don't really know who is who and who is related to who and how many incarnations this or that superhero has. It's just a lot of history but I am looking forward to getting into John's run properly.

    Nice.....Powers was my favorite book for quite awhile. Worth a re-read, especially with the new hardcover coming out that wraps up the last storyline that was left hanging.
