    The Flash stuff is very cool. Really good art and nice storylines. Also Firestorm (original series) is a nice read.

    With so many comic books you will definitely have many hours of reading ahead so that sounds like fun. I was thinking of checking out the bookstores this weekend but my health is in a nosedive again so it probably won't happen - plus I'm still sorting through the box of comic books I purchased last time.

Definitely was a much more comical take on the superhero group than we had previously seen.
    Thanks zryson it will save me thr trouble of reading the Weird which Ive always put off to the side.

    I'd have to disagree Zryson, I thought the Weird was a great mini-series by Starlin & Wrightson. It wasn't your typical 'superhero' comic, in that he WASN'T a superhero. JLI was hot at the time, that was the ONLY reason IMO they threw them in there...

    I guess we'll agree to disagree on this...

    Well disagreements make the world go around, so that's fine. But I wouldn't consider The Weird great by any means. Strictly forgettable territory.

    I have that entire Wolverine series and yeah, it isn't the greatest but has a few jems. Its more of a guilty pleasure...

    lots of 1st issues! You should be able to sell them for decent money if theyre high grade and you drip them onto ebay slowly.

    youve heard right, that Wolverine series is not the best. the exceptions being the early Chris Claremont & Buscema issues and then the later issues by Frank Tieri. There is some enjoyable small runs by Rob Liefeld (!) and Erik Larsen inbetween, but the bulk of the run by Larry Hama is downright forgettable.

    Steve Skroce did a great arc around the 150's that was a blast to read. I enjoyed the Hama/Silvestri era, but to each his own...

    Oh, yeah. forgot about that, was good. im unable to agree with you about the Hama stuff, although the earlier stuff with Silvestri wasnt as bad as the rest.

    The Captain Marvel comics should be good. I have that issue with the Watcher blasting him away on the cover (which doesn't actually happen in the story), and I think the Marvel Spotlights are in the Death of Captain Marvel hardcover I have.

    The adaptation of Return of the Jedi has great art. If you like the movie you should enjoy it.

    Excalibur is a lot of fun and Meltdown looks nice (I never did get to read the end of that story.)

    The Byrne FF and Alpha Flight are excellent. New Teen Titans are great.
