    Finished reading the Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Vol.4.I read many of the stories in this Omnibus in pocket comic books way back,so re-reading those stories in the over sized pages of the Omnibus is quite cool.
    And i am reading now New Mutants (Volume 2):The Demon Bear Saga.

    Just wrapped up the Sixth Gun and what a fantastic series. The depth of the world building Bunn accomplished in under 70 issues is astounding. Not to mention the art and coloring are impeccable. The mini’s add soooo much to the totality of the main narrative and are just as strong if not more so due to the richness of the world developed. I feel like I want to have wanted more from the finale but I think that is just because I didn’t want it to end and realistically it was the only way it could have ended based on what had come before. I highly recommend this series if anyone out there is not on it yet.

    Goblin Slayer, vol. 1-6 (manga) 7/10

    It's a fantasy manga series. Main character The Goblin Slayer has no interest in this world other than killing goblins. It's a result of an attack by some goblins to his town when he was little, his whole family murdered by goblins in the attack so he kills all the goblins, he can find.

    As you can see it's a pretty simple revenge story but it has a controversy around it and that's goblins not only kill humans but they kidnap human women and rape them to produce offsprings. There are some panels... This kind of reminded me Berserk and Trolls... same thing happened in Berserk at some point.

    I usually don't like safe series that doesn't make me feel like an adult, and spit on the face of the conservatives by making them uneasy... So here we are, at goblin slayer. I liked it even if it is pretty much a simple revenge story, it's controversial enough to pull me in.

    Goblin Slayer who is name is also Orcblog was a loner at the begining but later on a priestess who was saved by him, joined him. Others followed her. A magician dwarf, A shaman Naga and an archer elf girl. They become an inseperable party and it's fun to follow them in the dangerous goblin infested caves, and ruins.
    Bad bad boy with a bad bad girl in a bad bad world.

    Haven't posted in a while here as I just moved house some weeks ago. This was preceded by a lot of packing (61 boxes full of omnis and absolutes). Therefore less time to read, but I did manage a few books.

    Finished the Hickman read-a-thon with his Avengers run and Secret Wars - was very impressed by this overall run. Can't wait to read HoX / PoX of which I just ordered the hardcover. He's one of those writers I can't wait to read more of. Others are Ellis, Brubaker, Remender and many more.

    After that, I read Criminal Deluxe 1 and 2, Monstress HC 1, Uzumaki by Junji Ito, Harrow County 4 and a couple of days ago I started on Jack Kirby's The Fourth World Omnibus. Guess that may take a while

    Yesterday I finished reading the Silver Surfer by Slott & Allred Omnibus. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Funny and heartwarming. One of my favourite runs of the 2010s. I even shared some reading moments with my wife (she is not a comic fan) and kids.

    Before that, I finished reading the Secret Empire event and although I strongly disliked having Stevil Rogers /Cap Hydra, the whole event itself was pretty well done and I "enjoyed" reading it. A marked improvement to Bendis' written events. Like I said, though, hated the idea of making Cap a sleeper Hydra agent. The conclusion was satisfying enough.

    I completely devoured a couple oversized hardcovers recently: the Rebirth Deluxe intro, Detective Comics Rebirth Deluxe vol. 1, and Fables vol. 1. I'm a bit disappointed in myself for buying the first 3 Fables OHC and not realizing that a complete collection will be rather difficult as volumes 4 & 7 are OOP and impossible to find. That's going to get on my nerves...harumph!

    Finished Absolute Swamp Thing last night. Such a fantastic read. Unfortunately my copy has a bit of the glue separating from the ribbon so I'll want to get some book glue before another re-read (which will probably happen next year before vol 2 hopefully arrives).

    Now to decide which to start next: another Batman title (Tomasi's Batman & Robin, Batman Eternal or Gotham Central omni); Seven Soldiers by Morrison; Aquaman by Johns; New Frontier Absolute; Age of Apocalypse+Companion omnis; or Descender vols. 1 & 2. I also picked up volumes 1-4 of The Sandman (which I've never read before) from a discord group...so might jump right into that.

    After enjoying the Sixth Gun so much decided to go for some more Bunn and read Harrow County. Another solid outing. Again the setting was rich and felt fully flushed out. I wish the consequences of Emmy’s plan had been explored a bit more and the climax again left me a little cold for how strong the rest of the story was. I also would love to see further stories of The Abandoned and what becomes of him, which tells that the character development was good enough that I cared about them. Overall a great series.

    I've reread both of those recently myself, brought back many great memories. I also got the TPB for the X-ecutionor's Song, and looking for the TPB for X-tinction Agenda.

    Not sure if this falls into the category of "collected edition", but this week I picked up the TPB for Wonder Twins - Activate, the first half of the Wonder Twins maxi-series.

    I've started reading EC Archives Two-fisted Tales Vol. 1 OHC. Beautifully presented as per usual with the EC Archives. I'm quite enjoying it.

    Highly recommend Gotham Central. Liked it so much that looking to get the Omni now after selling the tpb’s. The story is very strong and stays with you after ending. I do wish the art grabbed me a bit more but it fits well with the writing. I loved how it took a character like Renee Montoya and really made you care for her. I felt the weight of her decisions and what she had to live with. It’s not surprising how well it turned out. Brubaker and Rucka are such intelligent writers. Definitely recommend you won’t regret it.

    I'm reading Injustice Gods Among Us. I do enjoy an evil Superman story. The introduction to the book put me in the right frame of mind for the whole thing. This version of Superman reminds me of the Plutonian. And Mark Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme. It's insane how many books have done a variation on Gruenwald's original 12 issue Squadron Supreme series. The Justice League divided and versus itself? That recipe always wins!

    I just finished the entire book and it was terrific. It really hit the spot for a line wide DC epic and I was surprised how many of the big moments, whether plot wise, emotional, or action wise had a ton of weight.

    Dark Ark, Cullen Bunn can do no wrong BUT although the concept of this book is excellent, I’m having trouble getting past the art, which I’m not enjoying at all, as far as I’m concerned as as important as the writer is, Comics are a visual medium, and the best story in the world can be ruined by poor artwork
