Here's what awaits me at the LCS:

  • TERRIFICS #16 - I'm way behind on this series for some odd reason.  I was really enjoying it up to the Annual, so it will take a binge reading to catch up.
  • MR AND MRS X #11 I'm also way behind on this series.  I really enjoyed the first issue, and then got into a missing jag.  As I've dropped all of the other X-Men related titles, this one is likely on the chopping block. 
  • BACK ISSUE #113 - An ongoing title that I generally enjoy.  I can read bits and pieces at a time.  This month's theme is the 30th Anniversary of the Michael Keaton Batman movie, of which I have some interest in.

G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #262- I always enjoy the unapologetic heroes and the fun villains of Larry Hama's G.I. Joe.

Action Comics #1011- Leviathan has me intrigued.

Batgirl #35- An underrated book, just a good heroic Bat-story.

Detective Comics #1004- An interesting spin on someone not thinking Batman is good for Gotham.

Avengers #19- I've found that Aaron's writing of a book is mostly about the villains or supporting characters. He doesn't seem to want to actually write about the Avengers as much as he wants to concentrate on characters around them.

Doctor Strange #14- This has been good.

Tony Stark Iron Man #11- This storyline has taken a little too long.

Savage Dragon #244
GI Joe #262
Avengers #19

Also recently got Hulk #2 and #4-6, which was a dramatic leap forward in completing my Marvel Silver Age list (only three books left, one of which has probably priced itself out of my range and one of which definitely has - I foresee an anticlimactic finish) and an equally dramatic setback in paying off my credit card. :-)

Nothing for me. The way things are shipping right now, my books tend to get lumped into a couple big weeks with little or nothing in between.

What I've read so far:

AVENGERS #19: I know next-to-nothing about Gorilla-Man, but I enjoyed this issue. Ed McGuiness is the perfect big-muscle-character artist.

DETECTIVE COMICS #1004: so much better than Tom King's BATMAN that Peter Tomasi deserves some sort of medal. And I like this Arkham Knight character.

ACTION COMICS #1011: I hate what Bendis is doing on SUPERMAN. I'm enjoying what he's doing on ACTION COMICS. He should leave SUPERMAN, let some other writer clean up his mess (he doesn't understand how the Phantom Zone works, for one thing) and just stay with the kinds of stories he knows how to write (detective/crime stories like this, which show off "Clark Kent, Daily Planet reporter" quite well).

DAREDEVIL #5: just really solid writing by Chip Zdarsky.

DETECTIVE COMICS # 1004 - I've said it before, Peter Tomasi is doing brilliant work here.

GI JOE # 262 - You can't beat Larry Hama on G.I. Joe.

TERRIFICS # 16 - A good fun series.

TONY STAR: IRON MAN # 11 - I'd agree that the story has gone on a little too long.

DOCTOR STRANGE # 14 - Good, enjoyable, fun.
