(Y-11 ) final reading session of the week

I enter this last reading session with a bit over 13 hours on the reading clock and two amazing days of progress.

I want to closeout not only the week but also the month of June, which has been historical for this blog, with a bang.to help me out to close this down, I’ll invoke the help of the third volume of the fantasy series Pathfinder, based on the Role-playing game.

And try to chip away a bit more of Memories of Ice, currently on page 122.

Also tomorrow I’ll made a numbers update.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Sunday of making lists and new comics.

I spent this morning reading for awhile and making plans for the rest.

I finally finished the first 100 list of books, for this occasion it was for fantasy.

I’ll start with Fiction probably sometime next week.

The other great thing about today is that my special order of the Italian graphic novel, in it’s Spanish version, Dragonero.

I am still missing some issues, three to be exact, but they will arrive soon.

Plenty of new material.

Off to read.

(Y-11) The Dreaming before sleep

I’ll close out my reading day with a little over 15 hours on my reading clock and probably closing in on 700 pages for this week.

Tonight’s repertoire will include numbers seven and eight of the current run by Simon Spurrier on The Dreaming, part of the Sandman Universe.

And the latest numbers of DC Heroes in Crisis, numbers five thru eight.

Off to read.

(Y-11) last stretch of the night

As I enter the final hours of the day, there is still some 17 plus hours to go on my weekly reading clock.

I could chip away almost 3 hours, and hopefully I’ll slip another one before I succumb to sleep.

Right now I’m reading Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol and the third book of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Memories of Ice.

Lets see how much I can achieve.

Off to read.

Entering the weekend and I have still 20 hours left in the clock and only 285 total pages for the week.

So, it’s time to put some effort to this and finish the week strong.

I’ll start with some DC Comics stories, Batman Who Laughs, Justice League Dark and Green Lantern.

Jump into The Malazan book of the Fallen.

And finish the day with Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol.

Off to read.

(Y-11) starting the day on a high note

I started my reading day with a bang, and now I am close to finishing The Dark Phoenix Saga.

Tomorrow I’ll update my numbers, and hopefully there will be progress all across the table

And finally, I am giving another shot to the reading progress app Bookly, starting fresh with my list, so far it is working excellent, I think the problem was that it was not suitable for my tablet, will see.

Off to read.

(Y-11) new comic books

I went yesterday to pick-up the new comic books for this week.

As I mentioned last time, here in Mexico, it is a whole adventure to find those new books, but that doesn’t discourage me.

To start, there was waiting for me the fourth volume of the Prince Valiant.

4 down, 72 volumes to go.

Also, the eight issue of DC Heroes in Crisis, and the start of a new series of one of my favorite characters, Green Lantern, written by one of my favorite writers, Grant Morrison, this looks really promising.

I will make tomorrow a comic book day, I just have to find the fifth number of DC Heroes in Crisis and I’m all set.

But tonight it’s back to Genabackis

(Y-11) tonight’s reading

For tonight’s repertoire, I’ll go back to the Dreaming, trek thru the badlands of Genabackis and try not to invoke the wrath of Phoenix.

But I’ll start in the Dream Lands.

Sweet Dreams.

(Y-11) Time to flex

I just achieved a couple of great things this weekend.

Finished with Fire & Blood, just one half of the Targaryen family history in Westeros, and with that I just got passed 30,000 pages for this year of reading.

I still have 23,000 pages in front of me, but I am ready to put on my reading glasses and get shit done.

Right now I will go back to Genabackis and continue to follow the epic story of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, now it will be the third volume, Memories of Ice.

I hope to finish this volume and the next two by the end of the summer.

This combined with lots of comic books.

Now back to reading, because those 900 pages are not going to read themselves

(Y-11) Old School Monday…The New Gods (1971-1978) #1

As every Monday, I have read an old comic book from the top creators of the field.

And this week was no exception.

One of the coolest creation of the ever-cool Jack Kirby is The New Gods, a group of celestial characters from the DC Comics who are the inhabitants if New Genesis, they are looking for balance thru the universe.

In this particular issue we see Orion, one of the fiercest warriors of New Genesis, return home.

Where he uncovers a plot of one of the most infamous villains of all the universe, Darkseid.

Armed with an equation known as “Anti-Life”, see the series Final Crisis, which it can negate existence, Orion must stop Darkseid’s plan to destroy the universe.

These characters have appeared in other comic books, I recently read an story arc involving them with the Green Lantern Corps.

Also, I reccomend you read the limited run by legend Jim Starlin, The Death of the New Gods, it wouldn’t disappoint.

For next week, I’ll go back to the first appearance of the emerald knight.

Now off to prepare a new post with some of my plans and numbers for the upcoming week.
