    I might give it one episode. Probably not, though. This is not the tone I want from a Titans show. Like, at all.

    This is very NSFW.

    Every comic you've read in 2018

    X-Men: Red #6: Still easily the best X-team book out there. Twice now Jean has used her powers on other people without consent. Both times she was doing good, but I hope they make something of this; she cannot be psychically influencing others without blowback. Jessica Jones #1: A surprise digital-first issue which picks up right where Bendis left off. While some of the tropes are still there -- such as the two-page spread of talking heads -- the dialogue is less Bendisy. At 40-plus pages, it's essentially two issues rolled into one. Batman #51: In the aftermath of last issue, Bruce is in a bad place -- which makes it the worst time for him to be called for jury duty. Even worse, the case he's assigned calls Batman's legitimacy into question, as Mister Freeze claims he only confessed to a murder spree because an enraged Batman was going to kill him. This issue is mostly setup for the next, but I like what they did with Bruce here. Using very little dialogue, you know everything he's feeling. From his bathroom outburst to his loneliness in the hotel, this is a very broken man. The Magic Order #2: Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel begin to expand their world, and we get a few more clues as to what's going on. Tony Stark: Iron Man #2: Character wise, Slott has me hooked into this book. Plot wise, he needs to start moving this somewhere. Rogue Trooper: Tales of Nu-Earth, volume 1: In truth, I've only read the first 50- or 60-ish pages of this 400-page beast. They're solid, Silver Age-inspired war stories set on an alien world. They're also quite repetitive; reading them all in one sitting was a mistake on my part. For future readings I'll consume maybe two or three stories at a time, rather than pushing through, because these are fun, action-packed, beautifully drawn stories.

    Superman #1: Weird book. Felt like it ended out of nowhere. I love that J'onn wants Superman to do more and be better. X-23 #1: Honey Badger is the best. Also, nice nod to HB's future Wolverine suit from Old Woman Laura. Old Man Logan #43: Having not read their previous encounter, I felt a little lost, but it was till an okay read. Plastic Man #2: Fun book.

    Oddly, just before you posted this, both this movie and a C. Thomas Howell month were thrown around during a Pulp Diction recording.

    I might toss John Romita Sr. in there, but since he wasn't one of the Marvel Founding Fathers, yeah, I think Stan's it.

    My understanding is that this is meant to be the flagship book at the moment.

    Weapon X #20: Holy crap! Someone is getting me to like Omega Red! X-Men: Gold #31: Instead of focusing on the aftermath of the non-wedding, we're shunted to a Days of Future Past timeline. It's fine but not for me. The Immortal Hulk #2: Oh man! This is an old school horror comic featuring Banner and The Hulk. More of this please! Captain America #1: I think I'll wait for the trade here. It's solid and is very much set in the Golden Shitgibbon's America, but I'm not yet compelled to read this issue to issue.

    Batman #50: Blue eyes. Green eyes. Blue eyes. Green eyes. Shut the fuck up! I like Tom King, a lot, but his matching narration and dialogue is getting tired. As for the ending, he says this is the midway point of a 100-issue story so I'll see where it goes. Catwoman #1: This didn't really grab me, but I like Joëlle Jones so I'll stick around for a bit. Cosmic Ghost Rider #1: There's a scene that made me laugh out loud. (You'll know it when you get there.) And babychest returns! Death of the Inhumans #1: Well, this book took a few big players off the board. *shakes fist* Wolverine: Origins #1-3: I planned to read all 50 issues, but these opening three really set a poor tone. I think I'm out. Man of Steel #1-6:
