Got given the civil war graphic novel in prep for the movie. Should be an interesting read. They will obviously miss some stuff out in the movie but that is inevitable.

Picked up the Brubaker/Epting Captain America Winter Soldier: Dossier Edition GN today. Really enjoyed reading this run when I used to have all the individual issues and I missed it so looking forward to reading it again. The art and writing were both stunning. Might look to see if the following issues involving Crossbones and Sin were collected together as those were just as good.

The 6 Voyages Of Lone Sloane and Lone Sloane Delirius, which I remember reading when I was a kid as my dad had them. Going to start the first Kaijumax trade next, which looks pretty good.

Don't suppose anyone has looked at DC comics Rebirth? It's retconning the previous retcon which retcomned the universe that had previously been retconned two years before from the continuity that was retconned in the 90's tweaking the slight retcon of the 80's!

I like the idea of what they've done and I'm going to be picking some of the new stuff up, Wacky Raceland, Future Quest, Doom Patrol and Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, although technically they're all outside of the main DC Universe.

So hooked with 20th Century Boys manga, it was a debt I had with myself. Great stuff!

100 Bullets vol 1-4.

Really good read. Unfortunately the Library did not have volumes five and six so I need to track them down before continuing on with the rest.

The 2005 Shanna the She-Devil TPB. Decent, quick-ish read but the main draw is really the godly Frank Cho art :)
