At least Morrison used to write interesting comics, unlike the wankery he's been putting out for DC.

I think he's still doing a fine job in Image with his Happy miniseries.

Well, I finished the Walking Dead Book 2. It was a quick, fun read but nothing spectacular. There were some plot points that I really wish they would have worked into the show and others that I am glad that they left out but all in all, I try to read the book as if it is a separate entity from the show entirely.

I also received and read the third volume of Sixth Gun. The series continues to be quite good and I am loving the world that Cullen Bunn is creating. This volume is probably my least favorite of the books so far but it's still really good and I am intrigued by what is going to happen next.

Everyone should do that. I don't know why so many readers get obsessed about the show not replicating the comic...

I've enjoyed the first volume. Have to get the others. So much books, so little money.

I will say that I definitely enjoyed the second book as much as, if not more than the first volume.

So much books, so little money.


Isn't that always the problem? :-( :P

There's no problem in re-reading. I'm re-reading Team-ups of the Brave and the Bold by JMS.

I'm re-reading Simonson Thor (slowly) and Uncanny X-Force. Well, I finished Uncanny X-Force. Man, that Otherworld story was awful. How does that artist still get work?

Just read through Bendis and Brubaker's DD. Bendis was surprisingly good and Brubaker was just a touch below it. Also just started on the FF Byrne omnibus. Woof that is a big fucking book! Also read Kieron Gillen's first volume of Uncanny randomly because they library had it. I haven't read the x-books since 2007 and I am not regretting it if this is the quality. Fucking terrible, and what happened to Pachecho's art??

stop with DD there and jump to Waid's run. Diggle's run was shite
Uncanny sucked, try Aarons Wolverine And the X-men for a good new X book

Bendis DD is the best thing he ever wrote.
