    I had some interest in reading those Conans cause I never did when I was a youngster, but I have to draw the line somewhere lol. If I catch up on my other lines I might tackle them.

    I finished the WW by Perez omni #2 a few days ago, very enjoyable. Slowed down a little for me during the "Cheetah" storyline, mostly because some of the dialect-writing got a little old to read. Finished strong, though I do miss Perez doing the art.

    Currently about 200 pages into the Seven Soldiers omni and enjoying it so far, can't wait to see where it goes.

    I finished reading Superman: Secret Identity The Deluxe Edition by Kurt Busiek & Stuart Immonen. What a very good read. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised. Very interesting story with some fantastic art and colours. I'm not a big fan of "real life" art inside a comic such as Alex Ross, I prefer it on covers. I initially felt that's how would it be but it's more of a blend of reality and comic form. Some beautiful two page spreads.More a grounded tale such as Busiek's Marvels. I highly recommend it..

    What issues are in the Perez Wonder Woman collections? I actually just read the first 7 issues of that series this week. I have the first 11 and a few other sporadic early issues that I picked up as back issues in the 90s, when I first started collecting comics seriously. Because that's when I started, most of what I have from that series is after Perez left.

    Yeah these are the first Wonder Woman I've ever read and I've loved them so far. The three omnis go from #1-62 plus a few other related issues.

    Looking online, I found cheaper TPBs, but they don't cover as many issues as the omnibus editions. But since I have most of the first TPB in individual issues already, that will be the best bet for me, if I want to start there.

    And I agree that it's a great series, at least the first 7 issues that I've read so far. It's been so long that I really don't remember much, so I'm looking forward to re-reading what I have, and maybe getting some more.

    Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus HC vol. 01 collects Wonder Woman (1987) #1-24 & Annual #1
    Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus HC vol. 02 collects Wonder Woman (1987) #25-45 & Annual #2
    Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus HC vol. 03 collects Wonder Woman (1987) #46-62 & War of the Gods #1-4 plus a few later stories

    So far the new TPBs have each collected half of the contents of each omnibus so DC would need to release 6 of them in order to complete Perez's run. Three have been released but the fourth hasn't been solicited yet. However, there is an Amazon fish for the fourth voulme for early next year.

    I just finished the Jim Starlin Omnibus the Thanos Wars, and it was such a blast. It has the same big narrative feel of the 4th World Books, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, or Neil Gaiman's Sandman. Reading the Death of Captain Marvel and looking at all that lush art, all I could think of was how it reminded me of the Wake by Neil Gaiman. There are times in the early issues where the figures remind me of Wally Wood and then you look at one of the panels or a cover and there is a big canal covered Mars that has to be from an old E.C. comic. There is just so much going on, Ego, Cosmic Awareness, The High Evolutionary... The big battle with Captain Marvel, The Avengers, Warlock, and Thanos, it had to be a template for Infinity War just as much as the Infinity Gauntlet or the Hickman run. There is even a big moment with Thor. So much cool stuff and there is also an early sketch where Thanos is styled more like Metron rather than Darkseid. Oh and Superman! I know I see Superman everywhere but Adam Warlock/Captain Marvel, they are distant cousins of SHAZAM for sure but they also got a big dose of Kal-El in them. In many ways those two characters are early deconstructions of the Superman myth. And getting back to the Death of Captain Marvel, they totally remind me of the Last Days of Superman! So good! Now I am on to re-reading Morrison's Seven Soldiers.

    I finished off the first Batman Golden Age Omnibus last night. Batman keeps on killing, but less frequently towards the end of the volume. By this point, Robin has even killed at least two people.

    Some things that came as a surprise to me:

    The Batplane appears within the first few issues of this omnibus. Despite owning a car from the get-go, it is not called the Batmobile until issue #48 of Detective Comics. In the issue before that, Batman #4, Gotham City is finally mentioned by name for the first time. Robin is called "the Wonder Boy" almost as often as they refer to him as "the Boy Wonder." So far, no Batcave and no Alfred.

    The biggest distraction in this book was the very poor lettering done in the first 75% of this omnibus. It was very difficult to read, but by the end, it seems they had people to do more legible text. Overall, I enjoyed reading these earliest issues of Batman and would recommend any Batfan to do so as well.

    Edit: Corrected the issue numbers where the Batmobile and Gotham City are first referenced.

    Reading through Spectacular Spider-Man MMW 1. Digitally just read the Michael Straczynski Thor run which carried through to Gillens run. Might read the Loki omni soon.

    Reading through Hulk Vol 1 of Marvel Essentials. Every now and then I like the B&W format of the Essentials books.
    Dick Ayers artwork on Tales to Astonish 59 is particularly awful but I love every bit of it.

    Just finished Southern Bastards deluxe book 1 by Jason Aaron. Really enjoyable non superhero read. If you enjoyed Criminal by Brubaker, this may be right up your alley. Am looking forward to the release of book 2

    I enjoyed the first hardcover too. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever see a second. The rest of the series is available in TPB though.
    Currently Pulling: Amazing Spider-man, Daredevil, Batman/TMNT III, Black Hammer: Age of Doom, Invisible Kingdom, Farmhand, Gideon Falls, Infinite Dark, Criminal, Babyteeth
