Aw! ❤ So in lurvz!!
I’ve been sick lately, so I’ve been doing more reading than usual while having to lay back in bed rather than sitting up. I just finished Volume 3 of the New 52 Aquaman comics, and though I’m not up to writing a full review, I can say that the Aquaman comics are only getting better as I go along! I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!! The artwork is lovely and the writing is action-packed! It is really working to give Arthur (Aquaman) his true credit as the king of the seas and show how hardcore he really is! Aquaman is one of my favorites!!!! I have volume 4 here and I’m excited to get to it!
I’ve also been reading the Flash comics. I love science and physics and the whole speed force thing is intriguing to me. I can’t say that I totally love The Flash comics, but I know I will continue to read them when I’m all caught up on my other favorites first. It’s interesting enough to fill in space between the releases of the other current comics I get, which is a bunch of them, but not as a priority.
The New Batman/Superman comic is intriguing, and I am curious to see how it progresses. The New 52 Batman comics are amazing! I need to give the New 52 Superman another shot now that there are more volumes available, and Supergirl, too. I read the first volume of each of those and felt that they were moving a little slow and somber and confusing, but that the potential to give Superman more than just a Boyscout persona looks very promising. I am excited about that! So once I get into a Super-mood I’ll grab the next several issues of both of those. Wonderwoman is still one of my favorites, and Swamp Thing too definitely! Animal Man kind of fell of the map for me, though, and now I’ve heard that they are canceling his run? I guess that’s why. Even with my great interest in Swamp Thing and hoping to see an appearance by him in Animal Man isn’t enough to hook my interest for Animal Man before I’m turning to other comics. Catwoman is still sexy and fun, though surprisingly brutal and psychological at times.
I feel pretty lame for not keeping up to speed on Thor and especially the new Loki comics coming out, but it won’t be long before I get all of those. I just keep getting side tracked by all these other comics that I want to give a try, and then I like them, and want to try more, and then I like them….and months go by of me trying new things until the first things I tried now have a new issue out so I want to get that. But I can’t let poor Loki go unread, so very soon I will catch up on those….my most favorite ever….Thor comics and get Loki’s whether they’re good or not because I’m obsessed with him!
We just got the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls expansion pack!!! I’m super excited because I love Diablo 3 a bunch!!!! You can read my review of Diablo 3 here. I have not played enough of Reaper of Souls to write about it yet. All I can say is that I am so happy to have something new for the whole Diablo atmosphere!
To make a point of how much I lurvz this game, I have played through it on Inferno mode, (the highest level), AND visited all the Whimsyshire worlds in each of those levels. AND I have played through the game from start to finish to hear the perspective of the characters of the Monk, the Barbarian, the Wizard, and am now working on going through it as the Witchdoctor and then the Demon Hunter! I am taking my time with those last two because I just don’t want it to be over! Now with the expansion pack I can go ahead and either truck through the other two characters, or save those two like I have been and complete the entire Reaper of Souls expansion pack without feeling like I don’t want to finish it. I think I’ll do the second of those options.
Right now, Master Betty (my gaming sensei), and I are playing Reaper of Souls together with pre-existing characters because your saves transfer!! Well, Reaper of Souls shows up on the game as Act V, so you have to have played through Act IV to get to it. It also has a new character to play as: the Crusader, and to play as him you have to start from the very beginning. I was too excited to see the new Act V to wait and play through the entire game again with the Crusader just yet, so we picked up with some existing characters and started right away with Act V. It’s great so far and just new enough to hook me! I’m really glad that when we finish it, there will be a reason to play through the entire game all over again to hear things from the Crusader’s perspective!!
