I had two weeks worth of comics this week, so some of these are probably from last week. East Of West #10. This book is immense. That is all that needs to be said. Mighty Avengers #8, really enjoying this book, love the humour in the writing. Wonder Woman #29. Like every Wonder Woman issue in this run, this doesn't disappoint. Manifest Destiny #5. Another fantastic issue. Art continues to be amazing. Lazarus #7. Brutal. Brilliant. FBP #8. Think this book is really underated. I've loved every issue that has come out. Captain Marvel #1. Great start, can't wait to see where it goes.
Still got a pile to read, including Sex Criminals, Rocket Girl and Ms Marvel. I've got high hopes I won't be let down by these titles.
Superman Unchained was finally what i wanted from that book and it was amazing. 5/5
Daredevil was brilliant and was better than i thought it was going to be. 5/5
Have yet to read WW.
But lastly Animal Man #29. This issue was 4/5 for me but is my book of the week because it wrapped everything up and the issue worked well because over the last couple of days i re-read every Lemire issue.
Was one week behind on picking up my comics so I ended up having a bunch to read this weekend.
Harley Quinn #4 Legenderry #3 Marvel Knights: Hulk #4 Royals: Masters of War #2 New Avengers #15 Thunderbolts #23 Letter 44 #5 Suicide Squad #29
I've read the first 4 on the list so far. From best to worst I'd say - Legenderry followed closely by Royals, then Marvel Knights: Hulk(was a 4 issue series so it's done), and then in dead, dead, dead last Harley Quinn. I am just loving Legenderry. I love the writing, the word choices, the art is wonderful and I find myself not being able to wait to see what other literary/fictional character will pop up out of the blue. It's just a lot of fun. Plus did I mention the wonderful art? On the flip side you have Harley Quinn, where I find the writing to be bordering on childish, along with the art. There was at least one panel where I it appeared to be drawn in some weird Dragon Ball Z style with bug eyes, open mouth, and goofy hair. It was right in the middle of some other 'normal' art so it really stood out. The story is going nowhere, Harley has zero character appeal or personality besides a 'lets see how much we can just make her do whatever we want without any real reason'. She's borderline stupid in this comic, which really sucks because she is not a dumb character. It's just very lame slapstick which IMO falls flat. Including the #0 issue I've gone 5 issues on this book and that's my nice round number. There won't be an issue #5 for me.
So with Marvel Knights ending and me dropping Harley Quinn that should free up some space for the upcoming Sinestro and Iron Fist comics.
Anyone else reading Legenderry or Harley Quinn and have thoughts to share?
What's on my pull list, what am I searching for, what have I found, what's on my 'to read' list!:

After much deliberation mine was Superior Spider-man Annual #2.
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
