Interesting thing is the stories in here are from the 60s and 70s and they say a Great Disaster happened in 1986 the same year Crisis on Infinite Earths takes place. Makes you wonder.

Spider-Gwen Vol. 1: Greater Power - Its been so long since I read the previous volume of this series, that I genuinely forgot what I liked about it and what I didn't like about it. I do remember commenting that this volume would have to be strong to inspire me to continue the series. If I'm being honest, it just wasn't there. I love parallel world stories and I really like the idea of Spider-Gwen. Some of her supporting cast are interesting parallels of their regular continuity counterparts but the writing and the art just aren't my cup of tea.

If trades count, The Wildstorm Volume 1 and Daytripper. I consider Daytripper one of the top 25 GNs I've read in the last half century + 1.

American Born Chinese: Pretty good. I like how all three stories are interconnected and the first story makes me want to read 'Journey to the West'.

Wilson: I've flipped through it. It looks descent.

The Autumnlands Vol. 2: Woodland Creatures

I fell out of reading this a while back, and I was hesitant about liking this after a long gap from volume 1. It took some patience, but I ended up enjoying this. At it's best, this is a nice mix of fantasy with Kirby-inspired sci-fi. The art ain't nothing to sneeze at either.

Image

Superb vol. 1

The best overall book from Lion Forge's superhero that I've read...so far. The art has too many cooks in the kitchen, but it's workable and is inspired enough to give the heroes some personality and fresh looks. The writing does a good job of making the characters relatable, and distinct. There could be more done to push these characters further, but this is a solid base to build on.

Rocket Vol. 1: The Blue River Score

I almost did a review on this, and I couldn't end this post without gushing about it. Is it an essential buy? I can't go that far. What I will say is that it's one of the most original comics from Marvel in 2017, and it's the best Rocket Raccoon story that I've ever read. From the lettering to the lettering, solid work all around. It's entertaining, and at times....touching. Worth a read.

The Death of Superman - Easily one of the oldest trade paperbacks in my collection. No matter how many times I read it, the ending still gets me every time. :cry:

Just read Our World at War Complete edition trade I picked up for 6 bucks. I wanted a fun Superman story.

I'm glad I only paid $6 because it was by no means the complete collection. It didn't include almost any of the one to two issue stories telling what others like Flash or the JSA did in the war.

Before that I read Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Vol. 1. It's part of my long term plan to mostly replace my sizable Marvel Essential collections with colorized trades. I got a good deal on this one it was worth it as that team will always be my favorite X-Men crew.
