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.

    Mawrth Valliis OGN — “Presented in its original Martian form”, this story is essentially wordless with sf/x in English, but all dialogue in “Martian” and not really meant to be translatable. Very interesting book.

    The very august title to this thread edition

    ASM #70- 71 & Sinister War 1-2. Ohh boy I have opinions. More opinions that may shock my readers! How do things stand at the halfway point of our story?

    Lobo & Crush 1-3 an awful lot of crush (lobo's last remaining child, I think) and not much lobo. My things have changed and the twist was exactly what I thought it might be.

    Sir Charles Barkley & The Referee Murders

    Batman Reptilian 2

    Blue and Gold 1

    Suicide squad get the joker 1
