    When is that coming out?

    On the last deluxe edition of Scalped. Maybe 5-6 issues to go at most and it's not losing steam. Can't wait to read the end tonight after work.

    Best read so far this year (unless the final issues suddenly undo everything, which I doubt and really not hope).

    Currently reading Superman : The Man of Steel Vol. 5. I found vols. 1-3 to be pretty good to awesome but vol. 4 just didn't connect with me. Fortunately, I'm enjoying vol. 5 way more.

    Byrne’s run is so good.

    I’m up to the Epic collections of Peter David’s Hulk run, issue #422 at the moment. Really really enjoying it (as I generally do with David’s work.)

    I've just started reading Daredevil By Frank Miller & Klaus Janson Volume 2 TPB. Volume 1 definitely got better the further into it I got, so I'm looking forward to see what volume 2 has in store.
    Currently Pulling: Amazing Spider-man, Daredevil, Invisible Kingdom, Farmhand, Gideon Falls, Family Tree, Babyteeth, Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy

    I have to go into work today unfortunately, so I have decided to take Morrison’s Batman omnibus 1 with me and start on that, I’m not a massive Morrison fan, I did have the Batman stuff he had released in the absolute format which I never really got into (and sold) I’m hoping it reads better as an omni

    Your job sounds good if you get to read comics

    I love Morrison; the omni is amazing and reading it like that will only add to the enjoyment.

    I am almost done with Brubaker/Fraction run of Uncanny X-Men I am on X-Men vs Dark Avengers: Utopia. I really enjoy the inclusion of Namor but it is so clunky as how he became involved. I will continue to read the run until I get to Gillen. Let's see if it picks up

    I love his Batman run but I have a feeling you won't care for it. It starts out as a sort of Dennis O'Neill pastiche, then fluctuates between weird full on Morrison and goofier adventure stuff with a grotesque edge.

    Loving my TWD read through and it's all fresh as it was so long ago that I read any of it. I've also paused after V4 to read the first four novels (Governor stories). I've heard some people say that it gets old eventually though, is there a certain point (no spoilers!) that it starts to drag a bit?

    I finished it all recently (I had about 1 - 7 of the HC’s then I sold them and started getting the slipcase editions) I didn’t expect to enjoy them that much as the TV show really put me off the whole idea, so the slipcase editions were sitting on my shelf still sealed, I had heard the (comic) series had finished so I thought I’d give them ago, long story short, I really enjoyed the whole thing, it had none of the stupid (or boring) plot lines that dragged the tv show down, and the ending wasn’t a let down like some (The Goon) so hopefully, you will enjoy the whole thing, do the novels add much?

    Ah, that is comforting to hear! I liked the TV show initially but I really went off in later seasons and don't intend to revisit it. I'm only a little into 'Rise of the Governor', but my understanding is that the first four focus on how the Governor arose and fell, the second four focus on the lady that took over Woodbury post-Governor and I believe there is one just come out last year which I assume is a new four-part

    Ah, never found the governor that interesting on the page or screen, so will give them a miss I think

    Honestly, I'm halfway through the first one and I think that four is going to be a bit much. However, I think that one background novel on The Governor and one background novel on Negan (or any character, I'd love a Glenn book haha) etc would be nice, just to flesh it out. I don't know how they are going to keep me interested in him for four books though...
