The 2019 Reading Thread — The October “Better Get This Done Before I Head to NYCC” Edition

Treat yourself to reading some comics! Can’t find the time? Then trick yourself into reading some comics!

The Rules
Log everything you've read this year. Just edit your existing post or you (and we) will get confused trying to keep up. At the end of each month, I'll start a new thread and you can pick a "winner" from your favorite books. You can focus on just trades, or just write about the good stuff you've read.
