Doomsday Clock will deal with the Watchmen universe 's incursion into the DC universe, right? I might check that out
Yes, I got it pre-ordered and got the intel from you about three weeks ago. Thanks.

Yes, that is the correct description of Doomsday Clock. I have not been following the DC Universe closely since the New 52 initiative, but this has caught my interest.

This has a handful of solid arcs, but no Robin or Batgirl. I say if its a look at Batman's early career include them too!

I'm a big fan of Marvel, but they aren't putting anything out I love.
How do you like Doom Patrol? I love Gerard Way's first comic series, Umbrella Academy. But I've been waiting almost a decade for him to give us the next volume

And I agree about Marvel, I'm probably taking all their titles off my pull list for a while

I feel like right now Marvel is winning at movies and sucking at comics and at DC its vice versa

I'm starting to think they will wait to release volume 3 of Umbrealla Academy so there can be some Netflix synergy when the show drops.

Doom Patrol is great. It's easy to recommend to a fan of Umbrella Academy.

Umbrella Academy is great, I read those a month or two back.

Just finished reading James Tynion IV's "Memetic." That... that was creepy AF, fellas. Seriously messed up.

I'm intrigued...


And I'm jealous you just read Umbrella Academy some months ago, I've been waiting for the next installment for nine years.

Go read Memetic. It's only 3 issues. One of the creepiest things I've read in awhile, just because of that damned Good Times Sloth.

I think I will check that out, you've piqued my interest Cylons.


I just read through the back issues of Curse Words, and I gotta say I don't think I've enjoyed burning through everything available in a series so far since Saga.

I checked out the first couple issues of Curse Words, but it wasn't enough to keep me going.

Anybody pick up anything new or read anything particularly good this week?

I caught up on the two thus-far released issues of the new story arc in Snotgirl; the series is way different from my usual fare but the writing and art have been consistently good and the latest issue made me laugh several times. The mystery keeps getting more mysterious.

I also checked out the first issue of Void Trip, released today. Pretty interesting. I've met a lot of people like Ana and Gabe in my time (at times I've been like them myself) so I feel a certain kinship with this series already. I'm curious to see if the series can keep up that feeling

I got the newest issue of Rat Queens, it was pretty good and I enjoyed the 30's/40s cartoon homage during the second half

Nice. I have been rereading my old back issues of Rat Queens so I can continue on with the newly-numbered series. I have read a couple of the new issues though, the backup stories have been pretty good. That old school animation homage sounds cool.

I only pull TMNT and TMNT universe.

But anytime I see a deal for Ultimate X-men or ultimate spiderman I will pick up the TPBs for cheap. I will eventually finish both series.

Also if anyone is a fan of Berserk check out Vinland Saga, its more grounded than Berserk but it will feed your sword and warfare needs
