See, I start with the second-favourite and then employ the system detailed above. I need a good aperitif.

That's a good variant - if I wasn't a creature of habit I'd try that.

I start with new stuff, typically those in the first three issue which I still consider 'under review'.

The system I employed with the latter IDW Judge Dredd stuff is was to put it randomly into my (non organised) pile and then not actually read it....yet...will at some point I guess.

I start with the ones I ‘need’ to find out what happens next then in descending order of excitement...

So again, just when I was going to stop buying, things pick up.

The walkers are showhorned in to the episode but at least they are there this month!!

So I'm at New World Order trade and some interesting stuff happening. It's  not exactly... er... subtle though is it. No nuance at  all.

And even the reasons for Michonne starting to side with the Commonwealth seems terribly forced. Iirc, the TV show managed to set our gang on different sides of Prison vs. Governor much more effectively.

Princess can fuck right off though. Every terrible bit of "That's totally rad, dude" dialogue pulls me out of an already strained believability.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

100% spot on Tips! if a character was ever ever designed to appeal to a cosplaying demographic and attract the Vampire Diaries audience its her, we can only hope she has a deep, dark, nasty side that comes out and stabs them all in the back!

Trade Waiting scum that I am, I have just picked up Volume 31 THE ROTTEN CORE.

It livens up a bit. Still not subtle in the slightest.

But Rick actually seems to be doing the right thing for a change before being forced into a trademark bad decision.

The pacing is a bit off though; Michonne's big dilemma and court room scene rushed through in a dozen pages almost out of nowhere. Princess still annoying. Cast still too large to keep track of.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!
