    Haha! I was just going to ask if you were the Thundershot I knew.

    I'm not reading Venom until the Gang War collection comes out (presumably in twenty twenty . . . four?). I really like reading in long runs (currently reading all of Fraction's Iron Man run).

    Just reread all of Warren Ellis’ Thunderbolts in one sitting. Great stuff.

    I'm reading Royal City: the complete collection. I like this. For me it's hit or miss with Lemire.

    I don't know if this truly counts, but I'm reading collections on Marvel Unlimited, so to me it is collected editions

    I'm reading the entirety of the Ultimate comics and mostly I'm really enjoying it. X-Men is probably my favourite so far, but Spider-Man is not quite as good as people make it out to be - it's still really good, but people made it sound so much better. I actually laugh outwardly quite a lot in Spider-Man, which I wasn't expecting. The art is also a bit off sometimes. The consistent artists I find really good, but there have been a few stand in or one-off artists where I've found it a bit of an eye sore.

    I really like (from what I can gather so far) the fact that death can actually be death in an isolated universe like this, and I'd love to read more isolated continuities. The primary thing I dislike is that every female character has a 2 inch waist, and they all seem to wear crop tops. Like seriously, with the exception of Aunt May

    Around 50 issues into USM/UXM, and all of the other smaller series that have tied into the reading order that I'm following. Another plus is that I've become more interested in DD/Cap/FF.

    I think USM was very fresh at the time but to me it doesn't hold up at all. Feels very early naughties (that probably explains all the crop tops).

    Can't wait for you to get to Ultimatum, very curious of what you think (or just ultimates vol 3)

    Do you like UFF? I kinda enjoyed it at the time, mainly cause it was Ellis, but it is not exactly prime Ellis and the art is ....well it's Greg Land.

    Just finished Lois Lane: Enemy of the People and it was fantastic. Love me some Greg Rucka in the DCU. Moving on to Fraction's Jimmy Olsen collection next

    Ah yes, I've been somewhat pre-warned about Ultimatum haha At this point, I'm only 6 issues into FF actually, but they start popping up more in the reading order now. I did like that initial arc though.

    I finally got around to reading it yesterday and I'm very happy with the ending. I think it's a fantastic story overall and amazing world-building. We need more of that.

    I think I'm going to reread the other two. When the third will arrive I'll be ready.

    Maybe this is something for you: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/produc...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It's hugely surprising to me that Ult Spidey (the Parker years) hasn't been put into omnibus format yet. There was that vol 1 like a decade ago but then nothing.
