Comics: My pull list

I have been reading a lot of comics in 2014 and I thought it might be fun to take a look at my current pull list. I read comics though Comixology and though the Marvel Unlimited app. I do mostly read Marvel comics but some image and DC ones sneaks in as well.

Meathouse Man

MHM_coverTitle: Meathouse Man
Author: George R.R. Martin Raya Golden
Art: Raya Golden
Genre: Comic, dystopia

I read this as part of my Hugo Award reading, it was part of the Hugo voting package. I do not think I would have ever picked it up otherwise. Gritty dystopian fiction, not my cup of tea.

I will say up front, I did not like it – at all! I really tried to give it a chance, but it creeped me out – and not in a good way.

Godzilla (2014)

50e3ea8eabf54b3628e2fecabcb9f655I just came home after a long day. My boyfriend and I were to a family gathering  a party for one  of his nephews – his confirmation. As so many family gathering it was loud, too much food, there were too many people I had no idea who was and I found it kind of tiring – as I often do with that kind of gathering. At least it was rather casual and we were able to skip the church part of the day. So when we were going home by train I suggested going to see a movie – and boy was I in the mood for some dumb action by then. Luckily for us Godzilla just had its premiere – which seemed like the perfect match.

Author: Brian Michael Bendis
Cover: Kaare Andrews
Art: Sara Pichelli
Series: Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol. 2

I will start by saying that I read all of the series (28 issues) in two days. That should give you some idea of how I felt about this series. To me it was unputdownable! I just had to keep reading.

Not that this review will talk about things that has happened in the Ultimate Marvel universe a few years back. It will not spoil the story of this comic however.

Comics, lots and lots of comics

I am still reading lots and lot of comics. I am still struggling with finding out how best to track what I read. Goodreads don’t seem to be the answer, it skews my reading stats – and lets face it – reading a comic – not the same as reading a long novel. But anyway, I thought you might want to know what I am reading and what I can recommend for you. I will just mention the new series I have gotten into… just assume I am still reading the ones I mentioned in the last Comics, lots and lots of comics post if I liked them.

Comics, lots and lots of comics

I have been ill with the flu a lot this month to my great annoyance and adding stress to my work. While I have been ill and recovering I have not really been able to read much regular fiction. I simply have not had the energy which is why I am now going on week two of reading the same novel. However comics have been the perfect fit for my bored but low energy mind. I have not just read a comic or two but a whole host of them! I thought it would be fun to list them all. Some of them I probably don’t have a lot more to say on than FUN. Ok enough babbling lets see some comics.
