    I had a different experience - I finished volume 1 yesterday and loved it. Thought it was much better than the material in the Bronze Age omnibus. Starting on volume 2 tonight.

    I am more the Man Thing type of guy (wow, how that comes off?). Usually I like Alan Moore.

    Wish you a good read with vol. 2.

    I finished this one, recently (borrowed from a friend of mine). It's nice for a '79 story.

    I read Ultimate Captain America, by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney and it was... fine. I liked what Aaron was aiming for at the beginning of the story, but towards the end, Captain America learns nothing, and I wanted this version of Steve Rogers to be able to change since he's kind of an asshole. Still, I had fun throughout the whole volume

    You are welcome.

    Right now I read the 60teeess X-Men comics in the Masterworks version of my language. I think the translator changed the dialog a bit, it sounds pretty funny, almost like a its so bad that its good comedy.

    How are you liking this?

    After his dreadful GLC mini series, a sampling of Injustice, and DCeased (blah) I'd written off Taylor for the most part. However his current Nightwing run is fantastic! Based on that I added his two Spidey trades to my Amazon wishlist but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    I've just started reading through the Green Lantern by Geoff Johns omnibus vol 1 really good so far.

    Is that everything I have to buy to read through it? I mean the titles you mentioned above. I would like to try that as well.

    I've read half of it. I'm not sure how to rate it - it's pretty good, it's got Peter's voice down pretty well, but the plots are nothing to write home about. It's a satellite title, so it's not like I was expecting some big revelation about Peter, but it's just a little inessential. I'd say if you're jonesing for some good classic Spider-man, then it's a solid option that's not heavily tied to ongoing plots or tie-ins.

    With the way most of my current monthlies are going, I'd say I'm jonesing for some good classic anything right about now!

    I think I'll check this out after all. Thanks bob!

    There's a decent sized gap between Knightfall and Contagion; some of those collections are OOP, but I'm sure you'll be able to follow the story without them. I filled in some of the gaps in my Batman collection after watching this series of videos:
