    Thor (Marvel)


    How Everything Flows Together: perfectly except for the last few short stories that didn't have anything to do with the main story

    The Storyline: The main storyline is that Odinson is unable to lift the hammer after Nick Fury whispers something in his ear. However a strange woman does pick it up and is now the new Thor. Odin wants the hammer back and goes a bit nuts trying to do so including sending The destoyer to Midgard to get it. Odinson spends his time trying to figure out who the new Thor is.

    Artistry: Very good for the main story. The short stories ranged from meh to just silly.

    How much I Liked It: One of the newer Graphic Novels I've read (2014) but it was very good. The comic industry is very good at keeping up with the times.

    Final Thoughts: Well worth the read, especially if you don't know who the new Thor is and want to find out..

    Get Jiro(Vertigo)


    How Everything Flows Together: It's all a single storyline so it flows well

    The Storyline: LA is now run by chefs. The culinary industry is the only industry left and 2 chefs control everything. In steps Jiro, a man hell bent on taking them down so great food can be accessible to everyone.

    Artistry: Very good & it suit the story perfectly.

    How much I Liked It: Being a chef & a fan of Anthony Bourdain I absolutely loved it.

    Final Thoughts: A must read for anyone who loves a more out there grahic novel. You won't be disappointed.

    The New 52 Batman: The Court of Owls (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It's all a single storyline so it flows like fine wine

    The Storyline: Batman finds out he is targeted (as Bruce Wayne) for assassination by the mysterious Court of Owls. He spends the G.N. trying to prove the Court doesn't exist only to be pulled deeper into their world.

    Artistry: Dark, Gritty & Amazing.

    How much I Liked It: I was hooked from page 1. I loved it

    Final Thoughts: A must read for anyone who is a Batman fan. This shows a different side of Batman that I've never seen before and it's awesome.

    Anita Blake Vampire Hunter: Circus of The Damned (Marvel)


    How Everything Flows Together: It was the start of a single story so it stops rather abruptly.

    The Storyline: A man is found dead with bites on him from about 5 different vampires controlled by a rogue Master vampire. The police call Supernatural expert Anita Blake to help them find out who is responsible.

    Artistry: A bit childish looking for my taste. I didn't really care for it.

    How much I Liked It: I enjoyed it. My kind of story

    Final Thoughts: I didn't know this was only the beginning so I was a bit bummed not finding out who did it. Good read th o ugh

    Anita Blake Vampire Hunter: The Laughing Corpse Vol. 2: Necromancer (Marvel)


    How Everything Flows Together: It was the continuation of a single story which bothers me even more than just having the beginning like the last one.

    The Storyline: A killer Zombie is attacking people & Anita Blake needs to figure out who is doing it and why.

    Artistry: A bit childish looking for my taste. I didn't really care for it.

    How much I Liked It: I enjoyed it despite not having read the beginning.

    Final Thoughts: I hate jumping right into the middle of a story. Read Vol. 1 first and I'm sure you'll enjoy this one more than I did

    My Rating : * * * 1/4 out of 5
    I hope everyone has enjoyed this as much as I have enioyed doing it.

    If anyone has anymore requests I'll buy it with my next Paycheck.

    Chronicles of Wormwood Vol. 1 (Avatar)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flowed together pretty well even though it's just the first volume. No hard stop like some other's I've read.

    The Storyline: Danny Wormwood is the Antichrist and he doesn't want anything to do with Armageddon. He's friends with Jesus (a mentally handicapped black man who was beat into a coma by the LAPD) and has a tallking rabbit. His father (Satan) keeps trying to change his mind and the Catholic Church wants to kill him

    Artistry: exactly what it needed to be. It helped draw me into the story.

    How much I Liked It: Despite the fact i actually cringed in some places it was a very good read.

    Final Thoughts: Not for everyone. If you're easily offended don't read this.

    Crossed Vol. 2: Family Values (Avatar)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flowed together perfectly.

    The Storyline: a virus got let loose and infected the world and turned most people into psychopathic nutjobs who only want to live out their deepest darkest desire. The Pratt family live on a farm where they've managed to avoid the 'Crossed' as they're called (because of the cross shaped rash on their face) but 18 year old Adeline finds out it's not just the Crossed she needs to worry about, human beings can be psychotic as well.

    Artistry: dark, gritty & legitimately disgusting. In other words perfect for the story.

    How much I Liked It: God help me but I loved this. I'm a horror fan, the bloodier and disgusting the better and this fits that to a T.

    Final Thoughts: if you don't have something in you that's at least a tiny bit messed up you won't enjoy this at all and probaby not even then. This is definetly not for everyone.

    Crossed Vol. 3: Psychopath (Avatar)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flowed together perfectly.

    The Storyline: A group of survivors comes across a man with a broken leg and decide to take him with them. They find out the hatd way that he's got his own agenda and there's nothing he won't do, and no one he won't kill, to get the job done

    Artistry: dark, gritty & legitimately disgusting. In other words perfect for the story.

    How much I Liked It: I must be a sick, twisted S.O.B. because I loved this one as well.

    Final Thoughts: I can't wait to get Vol. 1 & the Crossed +100 series.

    The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (Dark Horse)


    How Everything Flows Together: It's the normal for this one, everything flows great.

    The Storyline: a young teenager, the only surving member of a group called 'The Killjoys' has to finish what they started by taking down the megacorporation Better Living Industries and save Battery City

    Artistry: Quite good actually. Not as crisp as others but fits perfectly.

    How much I Liked It: I enjoyed it but being a sequel i wished I had listened to the album it's a sequel to.

    Final Thoughts: Now I have to listen to My Chemical Romance in order to get the backstory. The album I mentioned above is their Danger Days album

    Now that I have steady cash flow I'm going to do what I've wanted to do from the beginning and that's buy them to add to my collection and I'm going to start with the only recommendations i haven't been able to do until now as well as review the ones in the series I've already read to see if my rating changes when I have the backstory

    Blackest Night: Green Lantern (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flows perfectly.

    The Storyline: The dead are coming back to life as the Black Lantern Corps and it's up to Hal Jordan to get Atroticus, Sinestro, Star Saphire, Agent Orange, Saint Walker & Indigo-1, all beings who wield 1 of the 7 lights of the Emotional Spectrum to fight & defeat these Black Lanterns before they extinguish all life in the universe.

    Artistry: a bit rough but somehow perfect

    How much I Liked It: I loved it. It's another must read.

    Final Thoughts: I got sucked in during the first few pages and that's always a good thing. As a prequel to the Blackest Night I'm glad this arrived first and I can't wait for Blackest Night to arrive because I'm very excitedto read it.

    Blackest Night (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flows perfectly.

    The Storyline: The dead are coming back to life as the Blac Lantern Corps and it's up to every hero on and off earth to lend a hand in defeating them. A very simple way to explain it but i don't want to spoil anything.

    Artistry: absolutely perfect. The team that worked on this did such an amazing job

    How much I Liked It: Words can not express how much I love this one.

    Final Thoughts: I've been excited to read this ever since i got the prequel and it did not disappoint. The reason i didn't go into much detail like I usually do is because I urge everyone reading this to go buy this ASAP. It ticks every box a 5 star graphic novel should. It makes you feel some major feels (which is a good thing seeing how the main theme is emotion.)

    Got some more from the library as well as a few more recommendations to add to the list.
    hopefully soon I'll be able to buy a few off the recommended list but until then I am no longer taking any recommendations.

    Superman: Ending Battle (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flows together pretty good for a story that spans a few different titles

    The Storyline: Superman's greatest enemies know his biggest secret...who he really is. Now he must protect everyone Clark Kent has ever known while at the same time finding the man behind his biggest nightmare come to life

    Artistry: I loved the fact that it looked like a comic strip out of the Sunday paper but the childishness took away from the seriousness of the story.

    How much I Liked It: I enjoyed it from start to finish.

    Final Thoughts: It was the plot that got me to grab this while i was at the library yesterday. Not the most riveting story but not the worst I've ever read either.

    Saga of the Swamp Thing Vol. 2 (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It flows decently. It's a bunch of individual stories with an overarching plott.

    The Storyline: It's a story of love between Swamp Thing and a woman named Abby. There was also demons and action and all that as well.

    Artistry: This particular Volume is a compilation of Swamp Thing from th mid 80s so it's a bit dated but by no means bad. This is another one that's designed like a Sunday Comic strip which is awesome.

    How much I Liked It: I liked it more than I thought i would so there's that.

    Final Thoughts: Having read about the animated & Live Action Justice League Dark films I wanted to read up on the characters. I like what I've read so far and am excited for more.

    Countdown to Infinite Crisis
    Superman: Sacrifice (DC)


    How Everything Flows Together: It's all one fairly major storyline so of course it flows good.

    The Storyline: Superman has had a psychotic break with reality and sees his wife Lois with some of his strongest enemies (Braniac, Darkseid & Ruin to name a few) and every time they kill her. He goes nuts and beats them almost to death only to find out this isn't what was actually happening.

    Artistry: It was good. Modern and crisp but still had a classic feel to it.

    How much I Liked It: I loved it.

    Final Thoughts: if you've snuck a peek at my rating you may be asking yourself "If he loved it so much why did he only give it 3 stars?"

    Well it's because on every page where a speech bubble was at the stop of the page words got cut in half, making it difficult to read and it eventually got so annoying i just skipped the offending speech bubble. The great story and amazing art work saved this one because there is no forgiving a mistake like this when it's DC. You'd think with as long as they've been in business someone in that giant company should have caught it.
