The Soldier's Christmas Poem: Another poem, I can't summaries it, one has to listen to it.

Hawkman (2018): Like I said it was the only DC comic book worth reading and Hawkman&Hawkwoman finally got a happy ending.

Snake Eyes: Deadgame: It's bad enough that Rob Liefeld is drawing it, but to make matters worse, he's also writing it... which would explain the lame title. Liefeld can't draw and he sure as hell can't write.

Punisher: The Tyger: Ennis is the only one can write about this part of Frank's past when he was 10 years old, most hacks at Marvel wouldn't have a clue.
Punisher MAX: The Platoon: I prefer this part of Frank's Vietnam tour (his first one) to Born and once again Ennis is the only writer who can write about this part of his life.

I've been thinking of getting this, the guy doing the narration in the audio sample isn't too bad and his Gambit... I've heard worse.

Blood Harvest: by Tessa Dawn. Book 12 of the Blood Curse series. It was okay, its in the paranormal romance genre. (no judging, don't knock til you try it. LOL)

I liked the epilogue best for the next book. Though, it feels like it will be the last in the series. The epilogues are preludes to the next book. It's the next book that feels like it might be the end of the series.

What is fun about these books besides Vamps, Weres and other beings not being evil though some are ... is the author used the constellations of the stars for her gods and goddesses. Neat twist. I do know its not everyone's cup of coffee or tea.


I have not bought a comic book in quite some time. Comic books can have all of these elements if not more when it comes to sci-fi and other elements. No visual is all. :)

The Transformers vs. G.I. Joe Comic (2014): This was one of those free comics that you could get at comic books stores back in 2014. This is an action, drama, and parody comic based more off the 80s cartoon of G.I. Joe than the comics and I was never a huge fan of the animated series, it pales in comparison to the comic, at least during the 80s and 90s. The artwork may look like it's poorly written, but it's very funny, crazy as hell and has some touching scenes. Being a Snake-Eyes/Scarlett fan, it had the perfect ending for them.

The Silmarillion - Dagor Dagorath: The Last Battle in which Morgoth will return and a second music of the Ainur will remake the world. It's pretty much Judgement Day with a little bit of Ragnarok. I don't think this is canon anymore, but it should be, it gives Middle-earth a second chance.
