Ninja Turtles is THE BEST comic book out right now, period.

I meant HERE. ;) But yeah, sometimes is does feel like I'm the only person I know who's reading it, which is lame because the last issue was pretty sweet. FE6 had a really great twist. I go to talk about it with people and they look at me like a crazy person, but that might be unrelated to the comic...

I'm digging Trail of Jean Grey right now. I'm also excited to see how they wrap up Superior Spider-Man, but I hope it doesn't lead to the end of Superior Foes because I REALLY like that book. Just started New Warriors, it looks promising. I'm also interested to see how they get out of the "pickle" the world is in in Uncanny Avengers.

I actually haven't read a current Marvel book in a year or more - I got a Marvel unlimited subscription and am reading the old stuff. Currently reading all of Spider-Man from the beginning.

Looks like there's lots of interesting stuff going on at the moment though. Looking forward to catching up with the current Fantastic Four.

Other new stuff I am reading: Saga, The Massive and Sheltered.
FINE

I read the free issue of Saga that Google Play had.  Not sure if I want to continue.  I'm curious if any of IDW's Godzilla stuff is worth picking up.

Didn't hook you, or there was something in it you didn't like? I think it's pretty fantastic.

Nah.  It was fine.  It's just sometimes it's hard to tell with just one issue.

Godzilla Half Century War is worth picking up for the art alone.

I'm sure I'll get to it, but probably will be awhile.

Been reading through the free archives of Fred Perry's Gold Digger when I stumbled upon a few panels where the main characters are singing parts of the MST3K theme.

Read the Essential Ant-Man.  Man, that was like the one character in the early days of the Silver Age Marvel characters who had NOTHING that made him interesting.  Really thrown together.  Most of the villains are Scooby Doo-ish, though in many cases, it's like pulling off the monster mask and finding an alien.  Plus, there's the uncomfortable gender role stuff.

Also read Nemo: Heart of Ice, a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen spin-off with Nemo's daughter.  A fairly fun story that works in the Mountains of Madness, but this one isn't as good as the other League books, in that I feel that there's not a lot to grab onto in terms of characters and that despite the dark ending, it feels fairly insubstantial in the end.  Still, fun if you want more adventures in the League universe (I'd rather they'd just flesh out the adventures referenced in the Black Dossier).
