Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

Recommended Posts

I had a trip to Forbidden Planet yesterday morning and picked up a few things.

Injustice Year 4 was finally released. I hate how these collections only pop up once a year but at least there's only 1 left from the first run. I really enjoyed Year 4. Introducing Gods into the mix had some interesting results. It's always good to see Superman get his butt kicked. :D 

I picked up a Power Rangers graphic novel called Soul of the Dragon. It was a self contained story that was about Tommy and his son. This was another good read. I'm early awaiting the release of the Shattered Grid graphic novels and this has held me over nicely.

I ended up buying Uncanny X-Men 1-12 and a bunch of the Age of X-Man comics. The X-Men Disassembled event that featured in issues 1-10 was fantastic. I'm a sucker for anything related to X-Man and the Age of Apocalypse so this storyline was right up my street and I loved it. The ending of it all and the events in issues 11 and 12 have set things up for future storylines and it's great to see a certain X-Man back in action. He was always right. :p

Oh yeah, I remembered that as well the other day. My birthday is coming up soon so I'm not buying it yet but will ASAP. I also find it crazy that the collections come out so slowly, they finished Year 5 last year, just release it!

I was looking at my trade collection over the weekend, sitting in a box in my wardrobe all sad. I really do miss collecting physical comics :(  I need a full room converted with shelving on every wall so I can display them again!

Took advantage of one of the latest Comixology sales the other day and bought:

Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: Spider-Man No More
Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: Venom
X-Men Epic Collection: Lonely are the Hunted
X-Men Epic Collection: The Gift
Immortal Hulk Vol 1: Or Is He Both?

I didn't think I would like the way they were doing these Epic Collection books at first, releasing everything out of order but I found it's actually quite nice to jump into random stories. I had bought the Essential collections before but always struggled with having to go through early writing styles early on so it's good to be able to bounce between decades.

Watching Endgame inspired me to try and rearrange everything again to try and get my comic collection back on display. Annoyingly though I've still only managed to free up one extra shelf for them so it'll fill up again pretty quickly.

Thinking about getting the Marvel Unlimited subscription again. I've dropped nearly all DC books now and only really buy stuff from Comixology so could probably save money this way. It's a shame it's 6 months behind but I do like to read a lot of back issues of stuff so it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Well that didn’t last long. I think their smart panel view is better than the last time I used it but I just don’t like the service as well. I like the simplicity of just being able to know what I’m looking for and buy specific books from Comixology. Finding specific stories or just simply reading a book from the beginning one after the other just seems like too much hassle. 

It’ll probably cost me more but I’d rather just carry on buying the books from Comixology I think. It’s a shame their subscription service is US only. I’d definitely sign up for that.

Grabbed myself a couple of trades in the Marvel Christmas sale on Comixology

Started re-reading Geoff Johns Teen Titans run this week. Such a good collection and getting me all nostalgic as that was when I was still really into DC.

Looks pretty good with the interactive choices. A nod to the original story with the vote.

If anyone else uses ComiXology, they currently have every issue of Black Panther for free.
