So, what's the reason that the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy is not
a rotting corpse in the remains of a dead universe
?

Also, really Grant Morrison? Really? Vyndktvx? That's the name you're going with? A little on the nose, don't you think?

Apparently we find out in the first few issues.

Cool! It's one of the older runs I've started collecting that hasn't been traded up. Also picked up aquaman by David. I plan on finishing waid's flash run that isn't traded and maybe his cap run.

Just need to find the time to read it all!

Oh Waid Flash was great. Loved David Aquaman/ Atlantis Chronicles also. I wish he could have done it longer.

A Marvel Knights Fantastic Four book and some stuff for CrossGen come to mind. I think he took over Meridian from Joshua Middleton.

That's actually hard to find. After I finished Hickman's run I went on a FF binge and wanted to read everything. That's the only FF book I haven't been able to find.

I think I'm about to get back into the whole monthly thing again. Finished up my back log on Gottfredson and Barks' collections and I'm ready to catch up on WatXM and Saga.

COMICS!

Catching up on a couple weeks worth of books. Just finished:

Hawkguy 8

Was a dope issue. Wu's little interludes were amazing and there were some fucking CHOICE lines in there. "Are you Iron Fist??" was fucking hilarious. Was laughing out loud at that. Kate's brief appearance was amazing too, "You guys suck." So Cherry is double crossing ol' Hawkguy huh, that kind of surprising.
Can't wait for the next issue. FRANCAVILLA!!!!!!!!

Hmm, I don't think it's worth getting that just for one book I may not like even if it would please my inner OCD freak...

Make a list of old stuff you always wanted to read, and then sub for a month. It's $10 if you go monthly. $60 for the year. A large portion of their 2000s output is on there. Earlier decades are spottier, but there is a ton of stuff.

Have you read the Earth X trilogy?

Earth X is excellent. Universe X and Paradise X aren't quite as good, but I still enjoyed them. If you like alternate future/history stuff you will probably enjoy the series.

Jean Paul Leon Penciled the first series. Doug Braithwaite did the pencils on the other two series.

Yeah I read them. The opening trades are cheap, like ten dollars, but they are Marvel style so only like four issues a piece. I enjoy the books, but the art lacks personality for me.


Also new 100 Bullets
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=44039

Do the 100 Bullets TPB's paper quality increase after the first volume? The paper almost seems like its newsprint, which really turned me off from wanting to buy more volumes

It is Amazing.
I wouldn't bother with Universe X or Paradise X

I'll have to take a look at what they offer and make a list to go through one month. I hear they don't offer a whole lot though, if it were nice and robust it's exactly the sort of thing I'd love.

They offer 10k+ back issues. Just not a lot of 2011-2013 stuff. Most of the best runs from 2000-2009 are up there. Stuff from the 60s to the 90s are more sporadic, and you will sometimes encounter stories with missing issues, but they have been filling that stuff in. It's not as bad as it was 2-3 years ago.

read Patsy Walker Hellcat mini that is on there Xo. They have a lot of minis from the last five years that would more than make a month sub worth it, alongside whatever issues of the ongoings you are interested in that they have available.

I don't own the 100 Bullets trades but Vertigo books are generally known for their...lackluster paper stock. Some DC books are like this as well but I think they've changed up in recent years.

Yeah, the 100 Bullets trades are all made out of "that paper". Though the trades for newer series like Unwritten and such use a higher quality, glossy paper.

Are the hardcover editions better at least?

What's coming up in Batman?

ECCC: DC Comics All Access.
"Batman" was next up as Snyder offered thanks to fans who supported the "Death of the Family" storyline making some jokes about artist Greg Capullo's excitable persona in that all his texts to send messages to his writer and fans felt like they were sent in all caps.

The writer spoke about the future of the series, saying that issue #18 deals with the fallout of Damian Wayne's death. "It looks at it through Harper Row's eyes," he said, saying he wanted to let Pete Tomasi and Pat Gleason tell the reaction of Batman in the pages of "Batman & Robin.

The next two issues will be a bit more of a "fun" story before Snyder and Capullo kick off a huge 11-part serial with #21. "This really is a really ambitious, crazy story that will be announced in about two weeks...I really believe it's our boldest story. I asked 'Can I spoil it?' and they said no. But it really is my favorite thing," Snyder said.

Please no more crossovers.

I'm pretty sure the 100 Bullets deluxe hardcovers use the new glossy paper.

Personally, I never really minded too much what type of paper they used. I'll treasure my Y: The Last Man hardcovers forever, despite them using the old vertigo paper.

I doubt it will be, I sort of feel like after DotF there's won't be anymore huge Bat-family crossovers. It would sort of defeat the purpose story wise. Part of me thinks they did DotF so there couldn't really be anymore crossovers for a while. Then again DC's editorial department isn't exactly the best these days...

Please, please, have the Teen Titans tie in for all eleven issues and somehow tie in to Rotworld as well.

Can I say this would be an improvement. Lobdel isn't a bad writer, he's just super boring and by the numbers.

The other name for him (The Little Man) is pretty clever for a villain that just wants to humiliate Superman. However, given that we're of a higher dimension than DC's universe, anything that's impressive to them might not be so impressive to us. :p

It probably will? They made Bat dudes fighting owl dudes a crossover and the Joker clowning everyone a crossover, right? DC is really into family crossovers these days.

Next, a coloring sheet, business card and a mysterious envelope...


Spooky...

How the hell is the Matt Fraction writing Fantastic Four the same Matt Fraction writing FF? The span of quality is ridiculous.

i can only assume Marvel segmented Fractions brain and only let's him use all of it on Hawkguy and FF. Fantastic Four is his dormant stage.

Fraction has always been terrible inconsistent. Look at his Invincible Iron Man vs his X-men. He also seems to do better on solo books.

Still enjoyed both as well. There are excellent Captain America and Punisher stories in there.

Kelly Sue Frichtion ghostwrites some of his stories.


Also, Bendis is going to do amazing things with GotG and cosmic Marbel. Jump in before it gets popular brahs, you wanna tell your friends and little kids in Rocket costumes next year that you were into before it was cool.

Frichtion, Fraction. Close enough.
