The 2020 Reading Thread — The January “Living in the Future” Edition

It’s a brand new year, a brand new decade, and a brand new thread to keep track of your monthly comic book reading! So make your usual resolution to spend more time reading comics, your usual resolution to list them all here, and get cracking, because time waits for no fan!

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.

    Last Year's Winner: Urusei Yatsura (Viz) Vol. 1 - Sad that a near 30-year old title "won" for best comic of the year, but it's a great re-issue with tons of back material and frankly, I'll take Rumiko over most of what's out there right now.

    January Books
    Brok Windsor TPB (Bedtime Press)
    Urusei Yatsura Vol. 4 (Viz) - The funny keeps coming
    Young Justice Vol. 4 (DC) - this was the trade where I stopped collecting the singles, so it was cool to "pick up where I left off" David and Nyauk kept hitting it out of the park even after I stopped reading it.
    Civil War II (Marvel) - Surprisingly really well done for an Event comic
    Dark Days: Road to Metal TPB (DC)
    The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child (DC)

    January: I actually finished 4 books or storylines in December and I can't remember what they were.

    I really need to write books because I promise I read lots.

    It was my favorite thing I read last year
