    I finished reading the Winterworld Better Angels/Colder Hearts TPB written by Chuck Dixon. It started off extremely strong with the Butch Guice drawn arc "La Nina" followed by the pretty good "The Stranded" story drawn by Tomas Giorello. Following that was the one-shot "Wynn's Story" which was not bad, art duties by Tommy Lee Edwards. The last 3-part story "Frozen Fleet" was a bit of a letdown. I disliked the "lazy" art by Esteve Polls and the story didn't seem to make sense. It also finished on a cliffhanger which was a bit of a downer as there are no further WinterWorld stories. It would seem that the series was cut short for some reason or another (low sales?..) and so IDW decided to put everything they had in one TPB. It's definitely a high quality TPB, physically. All the Variant covers are in the back. The colours by Diego Rodriguez throughout the run/series are beautiful. Overall pretty good, strong start but a weaker finish. Let's hope Chuck Dixon writes some more and produces some sort of satisfactory finish.

    I'm reading Voltron Legendary Defender vol.1 TPB
    I'm on S8 of the show and I'm finding two issues in that the creative team has done a good job of capturing the characters and universe.

    Spent the last week slowly reading Conan the Barbarian Marvel Years Omnibus.

    I really liked Conan in the 80s as a pre-teen/teen, but had never read the stories in this volume until this read.

    I was surprised early on at how Barry's art wasn't all that great at first, but by the end of his run the art got MUCH better. However, John Buscema is my favorite 60s and 70s artist, and he did the last two issues in this volume, so I can't wait for the second volume this summer.

    Ive finally cracked open my Absolute Preacher volumes. The books themselves are beautiful, but some of the art suffers artifacts from being upscaled...

    I've started reading Tarzan: Burne Hogarth's Lord of the Jungle HC. It's a beautiful oversized deluxe hardcover and the reproduction is top notch. Lovely to hold and look at. The original Edgar Rice Burroughs text is in the main part reproduced and there are no word balloons but the art is extremely "lush" and dynamic. It's quite a "meaty" but enjoyable read. I highly recommend it to any Tarzan and/or Burne Hogarth fan.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I was unfamiliar with Hogarth but have now ordered the Tarzan volume after checking it out.

    Just finished Silver Surfer by Slott & Allred.

    Honestly, It was one of the best stories I have ever read. So emotional!

    I've read the first four issues in Wonder Woman by George Perez omni 1, man this art is incredible! I love the paper in this also, and the colors are really soft and understated at times. Very pleasant on the eyes. Great omni so far, can't wait to keep reading.

    Also, is the New Teen Titans by Wolfman/Perez omni volumes good as well? Feel like I should pick those up while I can.

    Bought the Walt Simonson Orion Omnibus but I'm going back and reading Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus before I start it. Every time I read through it I have a different favorite part. I used to like New Gods the best, then I liked Forever People and now the Jimmy Olsen issues may be my favorites.

    I finished reading Tarzan: Burne Hogarth's Lord of the Jungle OHC. A beautiful book and a good read. Very nice art indeed. The second part of the book is in black and white and only highlights how good the art is.

    Where can this be found? Is it in the first Morrison Bats Omni? I don’t remember seeing that.

    It's a separate book by an independent author. See here.
