Week in Review (12)

Random Thoughts

I joined Marvel Unlimited... Scribd wasn't enough... I needed another toy! I have read what works out to 7 trades so far, so I am excited! I am all about the comics this year. I just have accepted that is how my year is going. I am not complaining. I have read so much good stuff this year.

Graphic Novel Year

Fall of Cthulhu
The All-New X-Men Issues 1-32
The Amazing Spider-Girl Volume 1
Monster on the Hill
Day Men Volume 1
She-Hulk Issues 1-8


I really need to get back on track with audio books...

Currently Reading

I have been dipping into some short story and essay collections, but actually haven't had much time to read the last couple days.

Weekly Reading

Volumes 1-6 - This is by the same author as Hexed. I really liked Hexed so went looking for some more by this author and find the e-book of this for a decent price. Not my typical way to read comic books that I buy, but sometimes money is the deciding factor!

Issues 1-32 - This was my first foray into Marvel Unlimited and I really liked it! I have always been curious about X-Men comics and now I am getting a chance to read them!

Volume 1 - I read some issues of this on Marvel Unlimited. It was okay, but I haven't finished what they have on there yet. I am drawn to comics about women, so this was mostly just a whim. I will likely read more soon!

Just a fun comic that I read on Scribd. It has monsters and adventures in it. Worth checking out!

Volume 1 - Another comic by the author of Hexed. This time we are in the land of vampires. It was an interesting take on them and I am looking forward to more in this series!

Issues 1-8 - I have heard a lot of good things about this series, so I felt the need to give a try. Another 'drawn to women in comics' scenario. This was really good! I can't wait until Marvel Unlimited adds more in the series.

Weekly Posts

New Additions

Hawkeye - Volume 2: Little Hits
Hawkeye - Volume 3: L.A. Woman


  1. I gotta find a way to gently hint to my brother-in-law that I'd like him to install his Marvel Now subscription on my iPad so I can try it out before getting one of my own.

  2. This is going to be the graphic novel year for you isn't it? How fun! I do have one graphic novel from the library on my nightstand right now but haven't gotten to it just yet.

  3. I think I'm going to be making far more use of Marvel Unlimited now than I have been ... :) I'm definitely going to add All New X-men to my list. And Hawkeye - Memory keeps saying Hawkeye is a must read.

  4. It seems like everyone is trying Marvel Unlimited right now! First, I need to try Scribd. :-)

  5. Oh! Now I really need to get my hands on Fall of Cthulhu for the Man here; he has a thing for all things Cthulhu!

  6. Nothing wrong with spending the year reading graphic novels! ;)

  7. I was never much into comics, but I'm glad you're enjoying them. :D
