Remi's (slightly) Obsessive Reading Log! Week 9-10
Week 9 was pretty slim, having taken the weekend off for Cat's birthday, and spending a lot of time with her and whatnot, so I just merged it with Week 10.
Amazing Spider-Man: Shed wrapped up this week, and it was seriously one of the best ASM stories since the reboot with One More Day. Anyone who isn't reading this book should really look into it, cause it is consistently one of the best reads going.
Decided to catch up on Superman and Hulk, as a I was at least a couple months behind on their big events.
Fall of Hulks ended up being a bit better than I though, but still kind of pointless. Lots of explosions and double crosses, as if they're trying to mix the old style "Hulk Smash" with Bruce Jones' more intelligent run, and throwing in "Hulked-Out Heroes" just to sell a few extra books. The whole things seem a little much, but wasn't that bad in the end.
Superman's Last Stand and War of the Supermen was lots of fun, and wrapped up the story that they'd be working on for a few years now. Maybe a little too nicely, if I had one complaint. Other than Clark/Kal being "a little" depressed about the ending, it's more or less back to the status-quo. We'll see where JMS goes with the back I guess. Also very excited for Paul Cornell writing Action Comics, and seemingly turning it into a Lex Luthor book!
New Avengers started out strong, looking forward to what they're going to do with that!
Young Allies and Avengers Academy were two books I didn't expect much from, but both were pretty solid. A good light read from Young Allies, and a surprising twist for Avengers Academy!
