Immortal Hulk Vol 4 did not disappoint. Got that from the library and read it one sitting. :thumb:

I bought a 535 page Vampire Readers Giant via a reprint publisher called Gwandanaland that I like. It cost me something like $25 shipped via Amazon, and featured Golden Age Vampire stories in B&W. One of the best comic book reading experiences of my life. Tomorrow I’m planning to buy another B&W Golden Age Readers Giant reprinting Golden Age horror from the same publisher and retailer.

Immortal Hulk continues to be the best Hulk story since Planet Hulk.

Silver Surfer Black is trippy and awesome. Looking forward to how it all comes together at the end.

Catching up on Doctor Strange...has its ups and downs, but Strange becoming a herald of Galactus is an interesting development I just reached.

Also, all 3 books have a tie to said purple-headed cosmic entity. Is it too much to hope for a new Defenders book bringing the 3 tales together somehow?!?

Catching up on the last five month's Valiant output.

Bloodshot: Rising Spirit was a prequel story that seems fairly redundant to me, whereas I quite enjoyed Forgotten Queen and the background-building that was done on the character there. Currently catching up with Incursion; all seems groovy so far. Not sure to what extent it was reworked from a Shadowman story to an EW story plotwise, but the first couple of issues have been enjoyable in that it feels in a 'reading experience' sense much like Kindt's XO Manowar did. I do like when Valiant do these 'strange places' stories, like the stuff set Deadside, Eternity and Aric's space adventures :thumb:

I just discovered Charles Soules’ run on Daredevil. Incredible stuff.

They released Visitor #1 and Dynamite Dejah Thoris #1 in the same month, December, and #2 was January, so I plan to keep picking them up together, once a month, making one run by the comics store. Those are the only two *new* comics I am reading.

I am reading VH1 Rai TPB right now in my enormous backlog of 90s VH1. I'm starting Rai #4. The 90s TPBs have minor worth, per se, especially used, but to me as a reader are a HUGE bang for the buck. Almost the biggest bang for the buck I can think of right now.
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?

I am currently re-reading the Mass Effect comics from Dark Horse I bought a few years back. All digital, mind you. They're really good and don't feel unnecessary like tie-ins to video games tend to do. Last time I enjoyed a comic based on a game this much was the Top Cow run of Tomb Raider.
Manga, comics, who cares? They're pretty much the same thing.

I’m reading Grant Morrison’s JLA for the first time. It’s been great so far.

I've been reading more Marvel again lately - still loving Immortal Hulk 30 issues in, really digging the new Ghost Rider series so far with Ketch & Blaze as the main focus, sticking with New Mutants after reading the HOX/POX mini-series, and I was even picking up the recent Avengers issues for the Starbrand storyline .
