It's an interesting premise, so I'll probably read it as well, but I can't say I'm a massive fan of Kieron Gillen, he doesn't seem to be able to write a three-dimensional character. He's not terrible, though.

I see what you mean (Wicked and Divine, Uber, even if I do enjoy those books), though his Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra were I think exceptions. Largely because it's Star Wars and every character had at least as many dimensions as the movies managed.

I think Die might be a little different due to its premise, but we'll see.

Fight Club 3 #1
I really liked Fight Club 2, and I think the third feels like it's going in all the right directions for me. Just like part 2, it doesn't feel like a book "tries", it does --what ever it's doing --and I'm onboard :)

Heroes in Crisis #5
Quite intriguied by this one. Not sure yet if it's a winner or not, but I'll stay with it to the last issue. While I think it's a bit stiff at times it also delivers some really cool and interesting moments. Some of the Batgirl stuff wasn't my fav, but I was floored by Harley's last page. Wow.

I read the first two issues the other day and really enjoyed them. Gillen's stuff is a bit hit and miss for me. I really like Uber and his Star Wars comics but Wicked&Divine and Phonogram don't do it for me. I've always put it down to different musical tastes!

Phonogram is certainly the worst written of Gillen's work that I've read. It's a shame, as Jamie McKelvie does a good job on it.

Nice little mini haul this time as I had to go to the Nerd shop and get some baggin' supplies for selling some stuff. Anyway goes a little like this.

James Bond 3 is just well done Bond fun, enjoying this. Lone Ranger 4 is Mark Russell genius as he uses the genius villian from last time to really crank up the jeapardy and excitment .

Black Hammer - Quantum Age 6 is the real star - wow what a great way to land this story with a genuinely fascinating and origin way to resolve the impossibly challenging super villian fight. Just loved this. Jeff Lemire is creating all the superhero universe you will ever need with his Black Hammer stuff!

Black Hammer is absolute dynamite right now. Pick of the haul for me.

Reddin

A supernatural horror western. I downloaded it a while back but only just read it.

The demonic possession stuff wasn’t particularly original, but blending it into a Western resulted in something rather unique, I thought. I enjoyed that a lot.

I've bounced off Shadow Roads, which is a shame because I loved The Sixth Gun
