Doh! Not so much feeling old, just stupid for that common math mistake.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

I just read Ghost Rider vol 6 #1. I've always been a sucker for the 'dark' characters of the big two, and for any book with religious tones; so this storyline appears to be right in my wheelhouse.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

with my subscription to Marvel unlimited and cmro.com i have just started to read thru in order and read thru my first 5 issues

FF 1-3. growing up I was never a fan of FF so when i got back into comics last yr i avoided them, but know maybe knowing more about the universe I really enjoyed this issues. its pretty cool reading and realizing how much stuff is still referenced in these first couple books.

Tales to Astonish 27 - introduction of hank Pym (im assuming) interesting as i just read Age of Ultron so it was cool seeing his origins of sorts

Hulk 1

Read a couple of the recent-ish IDW Transformers freebies just to verify that I don't have to jump on the sale that ends today.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

I read a slew of Warren Ellis' Marvel 'first issues' last night. Nextwave, Iron Man, Thunderbolts, Astonishing X-Men, and several of his Ultimate series.

Unfortunately for my wallet, I liked them all, especially Thunderbolts.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

Nailbiter #1 (Fantastic...could be the best new series of the year)

Southern Bastards #1 (Love both involved and the story is solid)

The Woods #1 (Quirky story, curious to see where it goes)

Hoping to read Lumberjanes #1 tonight...looked like a cool quirky book. I also have Dead Letters, Translucid and Calaban on deck too.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

Have only started buying monthlies again in the past few months after a 13 + year absence from any sort of collecting.

Minimum Wage # 4 - Love that Fingerman is going back to the well, it's an old favorite from the '90s.

Miracleman # 5 - Not sure when I started picking up the old Eclipse issues, so these reprints have been fun and largely new to me.

Moon Knight # 3 - Loving Ellis' take on the material, and the largely wordless storytelling in these first issues makes for a certain elegance that really showcases the art. That said, I think I read this in around 5 minutes, which kind of surprised me and left me going back to skim it again to make certain I hadn't skipped a page or something.

Welcome to the forum!

And yes, comics are hard to quit. I've had months or even years of near cold turkey, but I always come back.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

I'm having a boring weekend so far too, and reading comics.

I've read a couple issues of the fifth (fourth?) volume of The Authority, spotted them at $.99 per on Comixology. Very sneaky tactic of Wildstorm of having backup stories in each issue that continue in different titles. I guess that whole universe always tied together anyway, Wildcats and Stormwatch was it? I enjoyed them enough to buy issues 3 and 4.

Just read a book by DVDTalk's own Jamie Rich, Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks. I liked it, but a little slim at about ten pages of actual story for $.99. It looks like it's 14 chapters were all released at once. I think I'll wait for a lower price point on the full story.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

I read Letter 44 issue #1 and liked it enough to buy 2-5.

I think Afterlife with Archie is next in my queue.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

I have very limited knowledge of pre 52 comics so i feel a lot was wasted on me, but i did enjoy it (mainly read it bc of the new weekly book)
It started off as a light hearted book with humor thst i really enjoyed few issues in switched writers and it got a lot more serious. I enjoyed it i liked the break in the other universe books and was able to enjoy a stand alone series that i didnt have to jump around to different books

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you read?

Just went through and entire run of X books for the the past year (catch up time) including All New, Uncanny, WaTx, Amazing, Magneto, Storm, Cyclops, Doop......


Fun times!! Tons of books and my eyes hurt but worth it. Nothing like smelling that freshly opened comic!!!


Still have tons of B books on digital but I have to own the good stuff physically.
