Pity they couldn't afford to draw Bruce Campbell.

Killed some time at an after hours clinic reading this...



Which I liked more than I expected.  Not as good as, say, the Adventure Time comics, but still a solid kid-friendly comic.

And this...



Which is a fun Transformers parody.  It's not the funniest thing out there, but it has some solid gags and an understanding of 80's cartoon formulas that serves it well (the repetitiveness of the stories, the "character who is small but he has something to prove" and stuff of that ilk.  There are definitely better humour comics out there (seriously, read Tales Designed to Thrizzle) but this is a fun, solid read.

Though I don't know why DC recycled that one from last year's Free Comic Book Day.

The Guardians movie really got me back into reading comics after about 15-20 years. Since then I read the entire War of Kings storyline and Wolverine has always been my favorite so I'm back in just in time for his death; I've read the latest series and the Three Months to Die issues and am current on the death issues. Oh, and I read the Old Man Logan miniseries from a few years ago.

Now, I'm picking my way through the Marvel Civil War for the first time - thanks to Marvel Unlimited I'm able to read absolutely everything that was part of that event. Right now, I'm on Ms. Marvel #7



Next up for me, after Civil War, is Planet Hulk.

Yeah, I loved Planet Hulk, too.  I'd like them to bring back the Warbound some day.  Would make for a great team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

They've said it would be a pretty unlikely Marvel movie, but I think they've proved they can pull off some crazy stuff.

I'm not YET, but I'm reading Nova and I read the first series of relaunched GotG, so once I'm caught up on the Bendis version, I will.

It's actually very stand-alone. I haven't read any of the other comics and it makes perfect sense. I'm getting the impression that marvel is just letting Skottie Young do whatever he wants on the series.

Oh sure, but I just can't bring myself to do it :P

Pluse I read on Unlimited, so by the time I'm ready to start,t here will be a few issues up there. At the moment I think there's only one.

Loved the first two issues, but haven't had a chance to grab #3 yet. It's the only comic series outside of MLP that I'm actually making an effort to buy.

Read the second Multiversity book and it is fairly fun, but I wouldn't put it among Morrison's best.  That said, it has a few good moments.  My one complaint: I wish the book had more Al Pratt.  The character is fairly fun and it feels like we should have had more of him.
