Devil I just finished reading Daredevil #227-233, The Born Again storyline by Miller and Mazzuchelli. Even after 25 years it's still a great story.

Nowadays I'm reading Amazing Spider-Man Vol.2. I read #3-4 yesterday.

I recently bought most of the entire Doom 2099 issues and tie-ins for cheap not too long ago, and I've been reading it and really enjoying it.

Well I just started getting through the highly-recommended Warren Ellis issues which begins with issue #26 (in the pic). I'm up to about issue #33 when Alchemex makes their own Captain America to stand against Doom.

And I've got to say, I'm QUITE disappointed. I think Warren Ellis's run on this series is praised for no other reason than it's Warren Ellis. Because his run hasn't been nearly as good as the 25 issues prior.

He's going for this big, epic storyline where Doom takes control of America. The problem is that while he's reaching for this great epic storyline for the 2099 Universe, he's completely lost the character of Doom. Instead of being the fully-fleshed out character that was neither fully hero nor fully villain that I had read for the last 25 issues, Doom becomes a stale archetype of his old villain self (and I mean "stale", because when villain Doom is written right, he's an amazing villain). Ellis also immediately kills off two main-characters in Prophet and Wire when he takes over, which is another big disappointment. And while that cover looks great, the inner-artwork definitely took a dive.

I'm gonna keep reading this until the end, and hope there's a big pay-off. But all those people praising Warren Ellis's run on Doom 2099, have really disappointed me. I wish they would have kept the old creative team around to end this series.

Just re-read F.F. #'s 19, 212 and 213.
Have not read the stories in 25 years and after a discussion about the Sphinx I had thought that Rama-Tut and the Sphinx stories were related somehow...
I was mistaken, the only ties they had were the country of Egypt.
Either way it was an enjoyable read for me.

Recently I have been lucky enough to have been given a copy of the Flash omnibus that has Geoff Johns run on it. I have to admit that I have never read this before and am finding that I have been missing out greatly. This series is one that everyone should check out well worth the $70.00 + dollars for the omnibus.

Recently I have found myself going back to the older Silver age Green Lantern and Flash books. Talk about wordy but still over all great stories and I am a huge Gil Kane fan. Anyone who has not yet read the older silver age Dc titles should Definitely give GL and Flash a go.
You remember what we did yesterday? We saved the world – again. You don’t think that has any value, well think again, pal. The Justice League goes on, with or without you. Look, nobody can question your service or commitment to making things better. If you’re quitting because you think you’ve already done your fair share, fine, we'll throw you a parade. But if you’re quitting because it’s easier than continuing the fight, then you’re not the heroes we all thought you were. The world needs the Justice League... and the Justice League needs you

I LOVED Inferno when I was a kid! I didn't collect X-Men at all, but the tie-ins affected several of the books I did collect. I liked the idea so much that I decided to search out all the Inferno books (main issues and tie-ins). I had a lot of fun searching them out at all the convenience stores around town. Out of all the mutant crossovers of the old days, I think Inferno got the most participation from Marvel writers. It was just a great story idea that really allowed writers to do some crazy stuff (Daredevil fighting a vacuum cleaner, for example).
