    It probably was my least favorite of all the LoEG volumes (I liked everything up till this). It's just very bitter (the articles at the beginning of every issue really set the mood) and there is just way too many pages paying homage to British comics I have zero clue about.
    Full pages done in the style of the Beano or Captain Clyde, or whatever those things are, screwing up the flow of the story and they just feel very self indulgent.

    The ending of Tempest is good but the story pacing is strange.. sometimes everything happens at speedlight, sometimes nothing happen at all.
    I read it monthly and I hope with the collected edition the story flows better.

    Finishing up the Darth Vader vol. 2 by Gillen then back to X-Men. Next up this week is the Shattershot omni, Fatal Attractions (I really wanna re-read the X-aminations issue of X-Factor), and the Wedding of Cyclops & Phoenix.

    I recently read Spider-Man: Life Story by Chip Zdarsky......This seemed to get a lot of hype on the Spidey sub-forum here, but I thought it was kind of average. Not bad, just wasn't that great and I had to force myself to finish it.

    Also read The 7 Deadly Sins by Tze Chun (TKO Studios)......I wasn't expecting much from this, but it was surprisingly good. Very ugly artwork, but a solid storyline. I'm usually not that into westerns (be it in film, TV, or comics), but this had me engaged and I had to finish it in one day.

    Finished Tales of the Batman by Don Newton Vol 1 and Tales of the Batman by Gene Colan Vol 1. The Don Newton volume was a chore to get through as it was very dated and the stories were forgettable. The Gene Colan volume though was surprisingly good, especially considering this is late 70s to early 80s material. I was expecting more silly campiness. There was a bit of that but overall very entertaining especially the vampire storyline. Just started the Annihilation omnibus. It has been epic so far. Just finished up the Nova issues. Thrilling stuff. Definitely living up to the hype. Can't wait to finish it and continue on with Annihilation: Conquest, Road to War of Kings, War of Kings, and Aftermath to War of Kings.

    Finished The Incredible Hulk V1 by Peter David. Read almost all of these as (or soon after) they came out in the 80s/90s.

    Good stuff, and I was never a huge Hulk fan until PD’s run was in full swing.

    Just finished Annihilation: Conquest and on to GotG by Abnett and Lanning (omni including Thanos Imperative). After that, I'm not sure what to get to next. Maybe I'll finish the WW by Jimenez omni in preparation for getting the WW by Simone omni (I know they're not contiguous, but just to get in a WW mood).

    I think that's it for me with Unwritten. I'm on vol 4 and I realized that I just really don't care. It's not painful to read but I don't feel the drive I felt with any other Carey book and the art doesn't add anything to the experience, it's just kinda there, looking like a pile of nothing.

    Just so you know every issue in the GotG omni is covered in the Annihilation/War of Kings saga. I didnt know this myself until recently.

    Interesting, but luckily not a concern for me. I'm skipping as much of the WoKs stuff as I can. The Inhumans don't do it for me at all. Hopefully the DNA omni is sufficiently coherent w/o the tie-in stuff.

    I finished Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns, and Moonage Daydreams. Mike Allred's artwork keeps getting better and this book is full of gorgeous Sci-Fi/Glitter punk imagery. A must read for fans of Bowie or Allred.

    definitely gonna get this one of these days!

    Read Sinestro corps war, read it once like a decade ago and well, some things just don't hold up that well.
    It's a fine "smashy smashy, punchy punchy" book with mostly good art but there is barely any substance to it. And most the Earth lanterns are super boring. I feel like there is some really great potential in the whole GL concept but it's either just gets pushed to the side in favor of some boring action plot or it's Omega men which I could not care less about (despite that it was trying to do things that I wanted from GL).
    I want Gotham central in space +social issues (in space). Basically just a good cop or army drama but in space.

    Also read Persepolis finally and while the art is super crude at times the story is just superb and very engaging. Absolutely loved it!
