Big Trouble in Little China Vol. 3: Jack Burton in the Hell of No Return - Jack Burton is dead! Long live Jack Burton! Vol. 3 picks up immediately where Vol. 2 left off, with Jack Burton navigating the perils of Hell alongside his nemesis, Lo Pan while his friends try to find a way to bring him back to the mortal realm. Great stuff. Love this book. 8)

Green Valley hardcover - This collects the entire nine issue series and was better than I ever thought it could be. Great mix of medieval action and time travel thrown together. Some other crap about friendship and rising up to ones true potential too. :P

Grayson Vol. 5: Spiral's End - I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this but as I started to read this book, I was really confused. It has been awhile since I read what I thought was the previous volume of this series but something wasn't adding up. It felt like I had missed a huge chunk of the story somewhere along the way. It wasn't until I was close to the end of the book, specifically the preview of Nightwing: Rebirth, that I realized what happened. I received Vol. 4 and Vol. 5 at the same time and in my haste to pick up where I left off, I read Vol. 5 before reading Vol. 4. :oops:

In any case, while I can't wait to go back and fix this egregious error, I will say that even though Vol. 5 had a completely different artist and wasn't as strong artistically as previous volumes, it was still a fitting end to what turned out to be a pretty damn fantastic journey for Dick Grayson. I'm kicking myself for not picking up the first volume of the new Nightwing series at the same time.

Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 1: Into the Twilight - A back to basics approach to Spider-Man that works for me. There's classic villains like Tinkerer, Vulture and Kingpin. Spidies quips actually feel funny. There's plenty of supporting characters from Spider-Man's past like MJ, J.J.J., Aunt May, Flash, Johnny Storm, and Betty Brant. There's also new ones brought in like a potential new love interest and the Tinkerer's brother who helps superheroes. Chip Zdarsky seems to know Spider-Man's past well and he gets the character. This title will be added to my pull list.

Enjoyable. It's creepy and atmospheric, though there are some big moments where you have to suspend disbelief to accept the story's progress. For example, after the family's house is attacked by the Grim Reaper Vision asks SHIELD to track him down. The agency can't find him, even though he says they look everywhere, including other planets and alternate dimensions. Where is he? Buried in the backyard after being killed by Vizh's wife. A neighborhood dog later digs him up.

Grayson Vol. 4: A Ghost in the Tomb - If I'm being honest, this was easily my least favorite chapter of the Grayson series and that's not because I read it after reading the fifth and final volume of the series by mistake. It contained two issues of the Robin War crossover and the Grayson tie-in but it didn't contain the rest of the tie-ins, so the beginning of this volume felt really disjointed. Immediately throwing us right back in to the narrative that the series has actually been building toward didn't help and the multiple artists throughout the book really just made this an all over the place mess. Definitely not Grayson's finest hour.
