That happens quite often nowadays...

Haven’t posted in a while here’s the last three books I’ve read.

Captain America: Castaway in Dimension Z v.1 – Had to face a hard truth with this book. People have been saying it for years, JRJR’s art, fucking hell. Also realized, Remender is kind of a one trick pony with his Marvel work. It all seems to have alternate universe or something like that.

Anyway, it was just ok. Doubt I’ll keep buying this.

Bucko – This was really fun, had some good laughs. It was a collected webcomic and had running commentary too.

“Jazz." :lol: :lol:

Fall of the Mutants v.2 – I liked this more than v.1. X-Factor vs Apocolypse! I haven’t really read any of this X-Factor, no interest but I really liked this.

So, will it be safe to assume you won't be buying Superman now that Romita is penciling it?

One other thing that I forgot to mention about Uncanny X-Force was the fact that it was cool to see the early stages of concepts that Remender is currently exploring, like a statue of Dr. Mindbubble (currently appearing in Captain America) in The World and a conversation about Archangel's son (Uncanny Avengers) being bad news for the future.

I picked up Daredevil Volumes 4-6 Marvel Masterworks today. When I saw they were priced at $15 each I couldn't resist. I came so damn close to picking up volumes 2 and 3 too. I have a lot of reading to do now. Where do I start?

I've only read issues 0 & 1 of Mind MGMT but they were brilliant. Loved them.

I just got in the second Uncanny X-Men Omnibus today. Even though I've already read almost everything in it, I can't wait to start reading it.

When I received the second Library Edition of Fear Agent, I intended to read the first Library Edition again just to refresh myself on the series. Now both of these books are now taking up residence on my coffee table and I haven't had the opportunity to make a dent in either! Stupid life getting in the way! :x

Meanwhile, I've had plenty of time but not enough new comics to read.
