The Spawn, and Gunslinger are the only Spawn titles I get anymore. At some point it just seemed to me that I have to weed out the unnecessary. King Spawn was cool but I gave up, maybe someday I’ll buy a tpb of it.

Predator is cool. I don’t know much knowledge about the franchise but this series is based off the only movie I’ve seen, I think it’s predator 3?

Daredevil, Echo was cool. Until the last page.

Red Room works as the only true horror reads that make me feel guilty for reading such sadistic sh!^. It is well written, I confess.

Punisher is a rando I landed out of a 4 issue mini series. I closed it after five pages because I’ll find a way to read them all.

I read the Avengers: Celestial Madonna TPB. Comics are weird. People complain about the books nowadays; this story is 50 years old and ends with one lady marrying a robot and another marrying a plant. Who was thinking of the children???

I was told this supplier is clickbait. Ive read the whole series anyways and was excited to see how it ended. My LCS didn't get them until today and I had to call to make sure I got my 1 copy at least. He thanked me for the heads up, (without ruining the story) and I got a copy of all 3 covers.

Read through my week's pickups this morning.

ASM #26 was bad. Like really bad. I liked the beginning of this run (despite my dislike of JRJR's art), but this storyline has been awful.

I have been out of DC for a while, and had no clue what was happening in the Power Girl special. The art was cool, though. And the Nakayama foil cover is fantastic.

The Rocketeer special was okay. Picked it up for the Adam Hughes cover, to be honest.

The latest issue of Doctor Strange was good. Reminded me of some of the issues from the 60's.

The North Valley Grimoire was the highlight of the week for me. Interesting mix of James Bond and magic, with a bit of high school drama tossed in.

I admit, I read and re read issues 1 and 2 thru-out the week to get the characters straight. I fell into a wormhole yesterday though and I just finished the twelve issues.

From the past few days.

I'm ok with trying new things, but I don't think this new beast-mode Punisher worked out. Nice try, but finished like a greasy dump to me. Too many writers are trying for the Garth Ennis style which only worked for Garth Ennis. It must be too difficult to give the character some personality and not just be a ruthless killing machine.




Ghostlore has an interesting concept where a preacher and his daughter are able to communicate with the living impaired. I added issue two to my pull list to see where this goes.



A little misleading as the Soviet Super Soldiers are more of an afterthought in this. TLDR, SSS are extradited back to the USSR while the Supreme Soviets stop the Unicorn and rechristen themselves the Peoples Protectorate. It ends somewhat on a cliffhanger, as it implies that Soviet mutants will be more of a thing. I guess the geo-political timing between when the story was made and published along with the collapse of the USSR ended that. Story contains elements that are a continuation of Captain America #352-353.



Funny. This one had me actually chuckle out loud a few times. The media, the villains, the general population all hate Fight Man. This was entertaining. Now Marvel just writes all their characters to be obnoxious so the real world readers hate the product.









Bob Layton's writing/art and George Roussos' coloring make this. Excellent conclusion following the two equally solid Hercules limited series before this. Full Circle calls back to both series. As Hercules bastard son schemes to kill his pops, Hercules teaches the kid some valuable fatherly wisdom. Recommended.

Oooooooooh, @Studley_Dudley..... It hurts my feelings to disagree with you on Punisher. I haven't procured my copy of 12 yet but I spoilered myself.

With that being said, I'm not an OG Punisher guy.

It's all good. I'm able to handle a difference of opinion. I wanted to like it, but it just wasn't adding up for me. To me, I feel like so many writers since Ennis try to copy his style but forget how to make the character engaging plus the gallows humor that he employed especially in his two Marvel Knights imprint series.

That would be funny but I've had it for over 10 years. It's always just weird. This book captures it in words. Although, it has gotten weirder since a few people I was close with died. Now they all revisit me in the F#$%6d dream.

Nah, it's nothing like that. They would have been in the dream over 10 years ago. It's just more weird of a dream now. I think I convinced my wife to read it. She has heard me tell the story already.

@Studley_Dudley read it. Everyone should check it out. I'll mail my copy to anyone interested as it is an 8 dollar buy for a 20 minute read.

Welcome Back Frank deserves a reread from me. What a classic. The second MK series was from 2001-2004 and ran about 35+ issues before relaunching under the MAX banner. It was a good read too. A bit over the top at times but great stuff.

I honestly thought you were making a joke about the sexual content of the book and the 24/7 implications of the title. I thought it was a pretty solid joke too!

Let's see... There was...

The Uncanny X-Men Annual 7, 10, 12, 14

Annual 7 was just me looking to see how they handled Rogue's first appearance as an X-Men (it came out before issue 171), Annual 10 confirming that it is not the first appearance of the X-Babies, Annual 12 being a top favorite of mine, and Annual 14 being a refresher.

The Uncanny X-Men 246-247, 269-280

Truth be told, I love Chris Claremont's copper age Uncanny X-Men stuff. So most of this was a refresher while I try to find out what issues are Rogue keys, and which ones are Rogue tie-in stories.

X-Men Adventures 1-2

With both X-Men '97 debuting later this year, and there is a chance it will have ties to the MCU's Multiverse Saga, I felt a refresher was needed. The writing kind of felt bronze age to me.

The Avengers Annual 10

I totally needed an excuse to read this! I mean that if I am going to be honest, I am not a bronze age fanboy. So unless Chris Claremont gave me a reason to pick up those bronze age Rogue keys, I might pass unless I see a gap I need to fill. With that said, I think her first was better than Wolverine's.

Red Winter: Fallout is the conclusion to Red Winter. Red Winter followed a disgraced ex-NYPD cop who moved to Moscow as muscle for the Russian mob. The follow up series picks up after the first one and follows his son as he tries to escape Moscow while eluding the authorities and other gangs. Good read even if somewhat predictable at times.






Finally getting around to the last 3 or so years of DC Black Label stuff I have.

Batman: Three Jokers has beautiful art and a great concept. Batman, Batgirl, and Douchebag are trying to figure how the Joker can be committing crimes in three places at once. It's almost like a look at different eras of Joker as one is the "gangster", one is the "clown", and the other is the "comedian". Very well done story.





Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey. Fun read and Amanda Conner's art fits the style. Harley goes from NY to Gotham to teach a slum lord a lesson. Along the way, the BoP get involved, the Joker and other Batman Rogues are in there and we get The Message the whole way through.

A collection of the King issues of Mandrake. Also contains a lot of background info on the character and cool pictures of vintage items such as movie posters and BLBs.


Creature Commandos is a feature I have always thought was underrated. The collection allows one to revisit the stories in order without having to rummage through the boxes. Definitely recommended!



Over the last few months I have been revisiting Iron Man from the Tales of Suspense days forward. I am now into the early 30s of Iron Man’s solo series, and I have to say that the title has really lost steam during this period. Archie Goodwin kicked off the series with some really good work, but by the time of his departure he was clearly running out of ideas. What followed was some frankly not very exciting stories by the likes of Mimi Pond and Allyn Brodsky. The quality of the artwork was also somewhat up and down. I really liked the creative layout style of George Tuska on the early issues. Bringing back Don Heck to fill the void after his departure was a logical move, but pairing him with inker Chic Stone seems like a clash of styles that didn’t benefit either artist. IM has been my go to after work read for several months now, and I am not giving it up, but I do hope things pick up soon.
