I don't even know what to say
Avengers (2016-) #673 - Paco Diaz,Javier Pina,Alex Ross,Mark Waid

I kinda saw that ending coming, but not quite in the way it panned out.   And that's going to be interesting.   And I miss the old Viv.  

 

Still, this was a pleasant surprise: tight, I cared about the things that happened to the characters, and no dumb, forced romance.   Far, far better all around.  Onto 674 now.

Wow, that got interesting
Royals (2017-) #12 - Al Ewing,Javier Rodriguez,Kevin Libranda

And yet, there's no continuation, so it's still incredibly frustrating. 

 

Why can't I have TWO good Inhuman series?   Not mini-series, but ongoing series.   Is that really too much to ask?   I mean, at this point, they should have kept Soule on for Royals...

When I should care
Royals (2017-) #11 - Kevin Libranda,Al Ewing,Javier Rodriguez

But I don't.   I mean, big, supposed-to-be emotional things happen and I'm like 'meh.'   

 

So, yeah.   But the art is growing on me so there's that, and there's a hint that they might meet up with Black Bolt on Earth, so that should be... Well, I like Black Bolt.   But I might cry if Ewing writes him, so I dunno.   I'm excited and aware I might be dumb for being exited so we'll see.

It's another swipe at the Tower of TBR thanks to the world of audio books...
Jack: Grime and Punishment: Brothers Grime, Book 1 - Audible Studios,Z.A. Maxfield,William Arden

I've wanted to read these books for ages now. I'm totally a fan of Z.A. Maxfield and while I haven't read all of her books I'm working on it and I've wanted to read this one for quite a while now. So while I still love to read my books like most things I have come to realize that audio books have a place in my reading routines. 

 

'Jack: Grime and Punishment' is the first book in the series 'The Brother's Grime'. Jack is one of the partners in a company that specializes in crime scene clean up. A company that came into being when Jack's career as a firefighter came to an abrupt end. 

 

Ironically when a job comes up to clean up the house of a suicide victim it's Jack's turn to move on from the past when the victim and owner of the house turns out to be Nick Foasberg...Jack's first love and the person who betrayed him in unimaginable ways. But if Nick is Jack's past then what does that make Nick's cousin Ryan Halloran...is it possible he's Jack's future?

 

To say the least Jack's career gave this story an unusual setting at times and there's a solid cast of interesting characters adding depth and dimension to the story. There was a fair amount of tension and misunderstanding between Jack and Ryan, which was appropriate given the history between these two and add in some interference from Jack's well meaning friends and things definitely got challenging for Jack and Ryan at times.

 

I've enjoyed reading Z. A. Maxfield for a few years now and now I'm enjoying her stories on audio book. I'll probably never conquer my personal Mt. TBR but between my e-books and audio books I'll certainly be giving it a valiant try...so, I'm off to the next book in 'The Brother's Grime' and then who knows where the world of audio will lead me in quest to conquer Mt. TBR.

The main problem?
Royals (2017-) #10 - Al Ewing,Javier Rodriguez

This series has successfully gotten me to stop giving a fuck. 

 

 

The storyline is barely interesting me, the characters lack the depth of Black Bolt's series, and the art isn't nearly as good as Christian Ward's.  

 

So basically I'm going on because I'm Inhumans obsessed, but that can only take me so far.
