    I was expecting live and let die to be a modern take, but it seems to a straight adaptation of the novel (I’m guessing) set in the 50’s 60’s? I’m surprised it hasn’t been updated some what as they actually describe the black characters as negroes, which I found quite shocking.

    Is this the order (so far) that the novels came out? Casino royale, live and let die?
    It is indeed - I think the plan is all Fleming novels. Live and Let Die as a novel is notorious for that very reason, huge criticisms of racism - not that it’s the only example but certainly the most obvious. I seem to remember Van Jensen talking on a podcast about specifically having that discussion in meetings and wanting to avoid it, so I’m surprised that they have included the word in the graphic novel.

    Finished the Prometheus / Aliens / AvP / Predator Fire & Stone and Life & Death collections, which were fun. In Life & Death, the various stories fit together more tightly (all in the hands of one writer).

    Received the Injustice Omnibus last night and immediately started reading it. It's a real page turner.

    I finished reading Silver Surfer: Parable 30th Anniversary Edition OHC by Stan Lee & Moebius. Great stuff! Moebius also did the lettering, and strangely it's a plus and a minus IMHO. The lettering is very very good but on the other hand it seems just a wee bit too large in particular with this larger than normal OHC. I'm probably being a bit finicky bit that was my first impression. There is some nice additional stuff such as other Marvel covers and posters. Elektra and Spider-Man are pretty exceptional. The dust jacket also folds out to be a big poster of these posters. I really appreciated and enjoyed reading "The making of...." by Moebius where he shares his thoughts on his drawing technique and how he went about putting together the Silver Surfer: Parable. Extremely interesting. I even shared some of it with my wife as we both enjoy sketching. Overall an excellent book.

    I just finished the third John Byrne volume. I'm still not overly keen on the art (although I found myself not minding it nearer the end), but I loved the writing and I think that I will check out some of his other work. Possibly I've already read X-Men from him...

    Finished the Injustice Omnibus in a couple of days (fantastic!) and read the Uncanny X-Men Masterworks Vol 10 over the weekend (Yay for Claremont's X-soap ), which was also great. I really missed the X-Men, can't believe I haven't read anything since 2017.

    Therefore tonight I will continue X-Men in The Gift Epic Collection.

    The Wild storm: Ellis reimagines the Wildstorm universe from the ground up. Starts a bit in medias res but it gets clear after a few issues (similar to Injection). Loved that it was 24 issues and done, although it's just the origins really.
    Also in usual Ellis fashion it reads like a tv series. My only complaint is the art. Plenty of details but the design and style doesn't live up to Hitch.
    Also if you are a fan of the original Authority, get ready for the millennial, hipster, LGBTQ (more so than before) reimagining! I liked this version a lot, except for Hawksmoore, I think he just got a bit lamer.

    Sunstone: Mercy v1: I need more!
    MOOOAAAR!!!!

    PTSD by Guillaume Singelin: cartoony art and pseudo sci-fi setting (kinda futuristic, undefined war is going on, somewhere in fictional Asia) but realistic examination of ptsd and the treatment of veterans.
    I LOVED the art style, especially the colors were beautiful, but it might not be everyone's cuppa. The structure of the story is a bit ill defined but it gets its point across.
    +1 for best doggo sidekick!

    Has this been released as a HC or just the 4 trades? And is the universe finished now?

    4 trades only as far as I'm aware.
    there is a Michael Cray 12 issue mini from another writer and Ellis will have a 6 issue Wild Cats series (I think it starts this month), but this can be read as it's own thing and the origins of the new Wildstorm universe.

    I'm currently reading through the Bendis Daredevil Omnibus and it's my first time reading this story in nearly a decade.

    It absolutely floored me back in 2012, but I've found it a bit of a slog to get through ever since. Hard to say why, but it might just be the style of pacing or perhaps my tastes have just changed. I'm enjoying it, don't get me wrong, but I'm unsure if I'll reach the end soon and decide to order Volume 2. I'll possibly report back later!
