All the Comics I've read
constantly updating. :)
and some ramble-y thoughts on each of them because why not?

was fantastic, wonderfully scripted and the pace is perfect. It's good in just about all the ways I wanted it to be. Harley Quinn is one of my favorite bats characters and I loved her in this. She's such a tragic character. Also made me laugh out loud a few times which was good. 5/5
Read Issues 1-75
he Walking Dead has been consistently great. It's hard to talk about without getting into spoilers so I'll just leave things here and say it's great. No score because why would I score a work in progress?
Read Issues 1-4
I've only read the first arc of Barker's Hellraiser, and I'm already really impressed. I'd be willing to say it's the best place Hellraiser has been in since the first film came out however many years ago. As both a horror junkie and a fan of this universe the first arc was a joy to read. I plan on picking this back up once after I've read some more "urgent" things.
Death is my favorite character maybe out of every character ever written in anything. So I would obviously love this. 5/5
um, more Death= <3 5/5
I'm giving a lot of 5/5 aren't I? I guess I just love things too much
A short continuation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman universe. Like all things involving the endless authored by Gaiman this is perfect. 5/5
I Have read the entire series. 1-40
The television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is by far my favorite television show so I went into S8 very hopeful, and I was pretty happy with things up through about the first 25 issues or so. That's where all the Scoobie goodness happens. After that is just sadness and depression and silly destiny awfulness. It's frustrating too, because it starts out so good. Wolves at the Gate in particular is fantastic. Overall though, s8 is merely solid because of the dip in quality after issue #25 3.5/5
I can never make up my mind on which Joss helmed comic book I like the most. Fray or his run of Astonishing X-Men. Love 5/5
It's been a really long time since I've read Tales. I could have added Tales of the Vampires and Tales of the Slayers here but I own the big huge hardcover so here we are. I think I'll re-read it before I say anything in detail about it. I remember loving how it was crafted though. ALL THE ONE SHOTS!
okay so if you did not know by now I am a total Whedon fangirl. Dr. Horrible has a story of each character in the web series, and it's just as good. Extremely funny. It works without the music. Who would have thought? 4.5/5
After the Fall. Read 1-17
I've only read the "canon" After the Fall Arc in this series, and it's very good. I would definitely put it above Buffy Season 8. Bryan Lynch is the best non-Joss writer for this universe in the world of comics and I hope he isn't finished with the Btvs universe. Lord knows we could use him or Joss in a bigger role right now. I do plan on reading the non canon section of Angel at some point because I'm obsessed. 4.5/5
Bryan Lynch owns Spike's voice. Just as good as his work in After the Fall. 4/5
Spike and Willow? This is where I post my excitement face. 4.5/5
Read All Published so far. 1-11. Once again we have a fantastic start to a new season of Buffy. The first seven issues are great. One in particular is the best thing Buffy has ever been a part of in comics. However, recent issues are leading me to believe that Buffy should end and soon. I'm worried. I'll be posting singular issues of 12 forward once I read them separate from this entry from now on.
Due to the fact that I don't live anywhere near a comic book shop keeping up with comics is a bit hard. I really liked the first issue of Angel and Faith, and I fully intend on reading everything published for A&F.
This is Joss Whedon's run of Astonishing X-Men. As of right now it is the only thing I have read in the X-Men world, but if this is any indicator of what I can expect from X-Men then I'm totally down for more. This was also one of the first times I ever cried when reading a comic. I was an emotional wreck. :) 5/5
read entire series
The Sandman is the best thing I've ever read. 5/5
It's Watchmen 5/5
I know I'm being quite lenient with grading and saying all of these comics are perfect, but I like to think that I've been growing into a comics fan because my first journey's into this art form have been so fruitful. Blankets is another example of a comic that wrecked me. I think it's beautifully written and wonderfully paced. I related a lot to Blankets. Growing up in a religious household sucks, btw. 4.5/5
Lynchian? Cronenbergian? Yes and Yes. If either of those directors adapted Black Hole I think I would die of happiness. 4/5
Kittens and a teenage girl dealing with problems. Was made for me. 4/5
If I had to rank all the comics I've read Ghost World would probably only be behind Sandman. 5/5
Frank Miller is a flawed writer. His cynical, dark take on Batman is seen as a classic of the comics genre, and I sort of liked it. I don't think Miller is a great artist or a great writer, but his style works really well here. Some of the panels are a bit vague looking and some of the characters thin, but I enjoyed this for the most part. 3.5/5
I have the same problems that I had with The Dark Knight Returns, and like Returns I still ultimately like the comic. I think Frank Miller's writing is a bit misogynist and sometimes silly, but his work here for Gordon is consistently good. I don't like some of the decisions made in this comic, but I'm not going to bore you with Catwoman things. The art is a step up from Returns, but I think the story is a bit weaker. If you take this as a simple origin story of Gordon/Batman it's pretty good. 3.5/5
Still my favorite Batman story (well either this or The Killing Joke). This was one of my first comics, along with The Killing Joke, and I adore every panel. Perfect. 5/5
Rereading this I'm sure of it's perfection. 5/5
This sequel to The Long Halloween (one of my favorite comics) isn't quite as strong or interesting as it's predecessor. However, it still has the same style, ideas and tone. This continues the story of Harvey Dent's turning into two-face and it's very well crafted. This was quite a bit more humorous than The Long Halloween and in some ways a bit darker, or maybe I just think hangings are more violent than shootings. Anyways, great comic. 4/5
Catwoman: When in Rome. I need more girl comics in my life <3 4.5/5
In some ways this feels like a continuation of The Joker's Origins presented in The Killing Joke. I loved both the artwork and dialogue in this and the joker was evil. I think I tend to get hooked into the joker stories a little more when he is a little more off the rails and little more deranged and he is here. Great comic, and I'm really enjoying my time in the Batman universe. 4.5/5
Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth.
DAAAAAAAARK. HORROR <3. Maybe the best look into the psyche of Batman I've read to date. 5/5
need more girl comics <3
EVEN MORE AWESOME!
Have I mentioned I need more girl comics? <3
One of the books I think you would recommend to a person who doesn't take comics seriously. I don't know how to rate this so I don't think I will. I'll just say that it's really good and everyone should read it at least once
Just finished Arc 1. Interested to see where things go in God Politics and the plotline with Zola
A very solid one shot that goes more in depth about Babs. Shows her self reliance, strength and some of the discrimination she has to deal with by being both a woman and a disabled person. The Canary plot is also solid. This is more character based than any sort of conflict and resolution. 4/5
Like Wolves this one shot deals with Babs almost entirely and Canary takes a backseat. This one is quite solid and deals with some of the aftermath of the events of Killing Joke. Once again showing just how complex Babs is as a character. She's totally unique to comics. 4/5
Trade Paperback #1 for Birds of Prey collects all the odds and ends stories that led up to the eventual monthly comic. It's a nice start. A little rocky at times. Some one shots and stories better than others. I'm not a big fan of The Ravens yet. 3.5/5
Okay so half of these issues are kinda whatever and the other half are solid. Birds of Prey starts out it's monthly comic a little inconsistent. The small arc involving The Ravens is not great in my opinion. It involves Time Travel and Kobra. I don't really care for it. However the first 3 issues are solid examples of a mission that Birds of Prey are known for handling. Luckily the comic takes huge steps forward as early as the next issue, and I would definitely call myself a fan after the tiny misstep that was issues 4-6. 3/5
Favorite Issue so far: #8: On Wings
The effects of police work on a person and the very real responsibilities of those who enforce justice.
