Every comic you've read in 2019

I read that a year or two ago, and dug it okay, but I remember Aquaman getting dogged out in the book because he was so otherworldly. This would've been written before the whole "Aquaman is lame" insertion into the zeitgeist, but I was surprised at how comparatively dopey I thought the book made him out to be. Might be misremembering it.

To make a recommendation, I enjoyed the Green Lantern/Green Arrow miniseries by the same creative team around that time or sometime after.

Tales from the Darkside: Joe Hill was set to head up a reboot of Tales from the Darkside with a series of interconnected scripts all written by him. He only finished three or four before the show was dropped, so IDW adapted them into comic book form. Fun, creepy, great concept. Wish the show went forward.

The Tipping Point vol 2: nowhere near as good as the first volume of stories, and even that volume wasn't something that knocked my socks off.

The Complete Ghita: Frank Thorne REALLY wanted to do a porno version of Red Sonja, but it neither has a decent story or decent porn. Lame. Haha!

The Sandman Universe #1: decent collection of stories.

Avengers/Defenders War: this wasn't bad, but it was really unfocused. I wish there was more between Loki and Dormammu, because that was the fun part.

Unnatural #2: not good. I'm out.

X-Men Blue #33: still very solid.

Astonishing X-Men Annual 1: I'm loving this.

Babyteeth #12: well this escalated.

Cable & Deadpool Annual 1: terrible. Like, unreadable.

Crowded #1: definitely not for me.

Extermination #1: Best event first issue I've read in ages. I'm intrigued. Very X-event. Throwback to Xecutioner's Song. Digging it. But, man, you need to know a little bit of X-lore to understand. At one point Young Jean Grey, modern Jean Grey, Rachel Summers and Cable are all in the same room. Haha! 

Hunt for Wolverine: Claws of a Killer #4: decent. Not great. This is the least entertaining of these minis.

Ice Cream Man #6: there's no way this doesn't reach my top 5 horror comics of the year list. Awesome.

Infinity Wars #2: still pretty good.

Multiple Man #3: awesome.

Ninja-K #10: this is Valiant's best series. I think I can say that definitively.

Pearl #1: no thanks.

Volition #1: also no thanks. I just don't like sci fi in comic or book form, I guess.

Weapon H #6: I am absolutely loving this series.

Weapon X #22: this is a quality drop. I'll give it another issue.

Archie's Superteens vs Crusaders #2: this was awful. Now, get me a Crusaders series with this artist and I'm in.

Batman Kings of Fear #1:  no thank you

Bedtime Games #3: a sleeper for best horror comic

Black Hammer Age of Doom #4: I didn't expect this angle, and I'm glad they're doing it.

Cold Spots #1: Too early to say, but this is some good horror comics

Daredevil #607: I really enjoyed this weird diversion form the regular DD story. I sure hope it doesn't cop out and reveal to be Mysterio again.

Die! #1: this was kind of dumb fun.

Hunt for Wolverine Mystery in Madripoor #4: oh thank god, Betsy Braddock is back!

Justice League Dark #2: this is slow-moving as hell, but I'm still enjoying it.

Old Man Hawkeye #8: decent

Old Man Logan #46: it's easy to see where this is leading. It's still good though. Love seeing Alpha Flight back too.

The Sentry #3: really fun, especially since the title character doesn't actually appear except for like one panel of a flashback.

Batman #82: Bruce and Selina fight Bane. That's it.

Does Bruce know about Alfred? If so, when did he learn what Bane did to him?

It's irritatingly vague. The last issue revealed that much of Bruce's downfall was pre-planned, so everything including him hitting Tim and his defeat was to throw Bane off. Even Damian's capture. But they've been completely cagey on the Alfred situation.

When this run is finished, I'm going to have to read it straight through and possibly cover it on The Show. This thing needs to be dissected.

Suicide Squad Annual #1: pretty decent. I enjoyed this.

Terminator Sector War #1: decent but not necessary as it basically takes the plot of the recent movie and transposes it over the first film's time period. But I guess that's the unique thing about it compared to other T movies. Oh well.

The Punisher #1: damn...this might be the golden age of Punisher comics. There's only one of them and it's really fucking good. That's a rarity.

The Silencer #8: this isn't bad, but it's just the same thing over and over. I'm out.

X-Men Gold #34: pretty good. Never been a huge fan of Storm-Centric stories. I feel she's always misused.

X-Men Red #7: great.

Beyonders #1: not great. I'm out.

Brothers Dracul #5: solid.

Catwoman/Tweety and Sylvester #1: these have broken down like so: 1, wow, this is the best single issue of the year, 50% of the leftovers "this was ok" and the other 50%, why did I waste my time. This one is the latter.

Cyber Force #5: this commits a comics cardinal sin for me: the cover has a character who does not appear in the issue. But I guess that is happening more and more these days. Anyway, this was a Ripclaw-centric issue and I dug it a lot.

Daredevil Annual #1: not great, but these Marvel annuals tend not to be.
