Started reading Darkseid War: Power of the Gods. The Batman issue was a bit of a mess really. But after starting the Flash issue, I realised maybe this wasn't the main Darkseid War arc.

[I should have realised it based on the "previously on" section...]

I haven't read a comic in nearly 2 weeks. Maybe I am done? Maybe I am free?

Messi drops Marvel and he stops reading books. Coincidence? I think not.

In all seriousness I've been lazy with my reading lately. I'm more curious about books in the coming months.

Its mostly true. I read the average marvel books every week to stay afloat. When I dropped them I didn't feel an urge to go elsewhere. I will soon I am sure but here we are now.

Dropping Marvel wholesale will likely be the best thing that will happen to me in comics. Breaking that cycle of needing to read everything regardless of quality. Felt like a job when really I am supposed to be reading for fun.

The other companies don't do it enough for me outside of a few books and what they put out has always felt completely different.

This summer is going to be an interesting time for comics in general.

Messi will come back once Silk brings back Stacey Lee.

I'll come back when they put digital codes back in the books. I don't care what they do before that. Honestly.

Sejic drew Mera again today for fun

lmao that's probably a better Mera than anyone else has drawn ever.

What's funnier is that he is legit doing this for shits and giggles. It's not a teaser or anything... He just likes Mera and the palette lol. He seems to have no interest in doing actual projects that aren't his own creations. I love that.

That Mera art made me realize that I have never read an Aquaman comic.

What if they drop prices, but don't bring back digital codes?

The first time I feel a female work doesn't look the same as all his others (especially Sunstone characters)

Only books for me this week are Shade and Flintstones. Nice to have a back to back of two of my favorite ongoings at least.

Been playing Nier Automata pretty much nonstop since yesterday morning, just started the third playthrough this evening. It's dope. Trying to finish it before the Switch comes out lol. So backed up on my ongoings though :( Gonna just start chopping stuff off if I don't read it same week.

Can't wait for 10/3. Finally finished FFXV(still have some post-game stuff left).

Sad that Sejic removed the Mera piece from his twitter. I'd buy a Mera mini-series or OGN from him. He's a good fit for the setting what with his great monsters etc.

Edit: New CBLR about STAS.

Time for list. Then I have to go finish Tales of Berseria definitely maybe.

Flintstones #9
Extremity #1
Invisible Republic #15
Walking Dead #165
America #1
Unstoppable Wasp #3
Brave Chef Brianna #1
Giant Days #24
Motor Girl #4

DC letting Cho do those variants:

All of Chos Harley variants have been really fun and in the tone of the book. Good stuff.

That Mera art made me realize that I have never read an Aquaman comic.

Won't happen and no interest.

Do I want to read booth Action Comics and Superman?

Most of Action has been pretty bad but this month's two issues lead directly into the Superman Reborn storyline. You may want to check them out. Superman is probably the best capes book that DC publishes right now.

For the art buyers: Takara has opened.

hey. I’m trying to see if this Big Cartel thing works for me. if you feel like buying original art you can go here: mtakara.bigcartel.com | but please be patient, as I’m still trying to figure that out. or you can always email me asking for a specific page you feel like having: mtakara7@gmail.com

Link.

If the Cass 'Tec #950 pages go up I'm expecting them to disappear quickly.

Edit: Sejic is funny:
that moment when you're so annoyed by your work that you gotta make a revenge piece on yourself XD

like i said...issues

I'm mentally dropping extraordinary xmen and new avengers from my MU reading in an effort to spend less time reading books I don't like.

Also Amazing Spider-Man and uncanny inhumans.

Yeah, this Darkseid War: Power of the God seems like bits of left over what-if stuff. Sat through a rather boring Flash issue to find a Manapul Superman issue. Dropping.

Well, yeah. That was the point. A few one-shots about the heroes with god powers. The GL and Shazam ones were pretty good.
