There are no numbers on the covers, so the only way to check is to look inside and see what comic issues are collected. Nice variety, though, but a shame that one or two surprises were spoiled as I’d read a later part of the story first.

Book Rating:7.5 Characters: Brightest Day (Brightest Day, #0) (Dc Universe Events Book 1) First published: May 31st 2010Rating: 7.96 stars GoodReads:Brightest Day (Brightest Day, #0) Review: as a whole, the event is kinda lack luster, it has some awesome moments but they lost the momentom after blackest Night and this book only gets good again towards the end DC Comics: The New 52 (Dc Universe Events Book 2) First published: December 12th 2011Rating: 8 stars GoodReads:DC Comics: The New 52 Review: It was a chore to read this tome. Clocking in at over 1500 pages, this collection includes the #1 issues for the initial New 52 reboot. I get that it’s a long collection, but something focusing on such a monumental moment in DC’s history should have really had more extras and intros. As it is, this is a very down and dirty collection.

Book Rating:8.6 Characters: Vietnam Journal Book One: Indian Country (Vietnam Journal Book 1) First published: November 17th 2009Rating: 8.62 stars GoodReads:Vietnam Journal Book One: Indian Country Review: I grew up during the Vietnam War. It was a horrible, unjustified war. I was lucky—my draft number was 284. With this perspective, I watched with horror as Amerika invaded Iraq. I continue to watch with horror as Iraq continues to deteriorate, the Middle East continues to destabilize, and Al Qaeda, which would have been a minor group without the invasion, has led to drone attacks that kill innocent people.

Book Rating:6.8 Characters: New Avengers: The Reunion TPB (Marvel Comics Hawkeye Book 1) First published: March 23rd 2010Rating: 6.82 stars GoodReads:New Avengers: The Reunion TPB Review: I’m not really sure why they didn’t call this story what it is, Hawkeye and Mockngbird. I guess they figured calling it New Avengers would sell more copies. But what it is is a good story. Mockingbird’s dealing with being captured by the Skrulls for 3 years while Hawkeye is just happy she’s alive.

Book Rating:8.5 Characters: Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus (Infinity Saga Book 1) First published: July 14th 2014Rating: 8.46 stars GoodReads:Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus Review: I really enjoyed, this and I escpecially loved the Thanos Quest, which is the prequel to this. It also shows how the Silver Surfer gets involved and why he’s such a twit.

Book Rating:8.4 Characters: Chester 5000 XYV (Chester 5000 Xvy Book 1) First published: July 4th 2011Rating: 8.36 stars GoodReads:Chester 5000 XYV Review: A strange and charming bit of erotic steampunk fantasy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Jessica Fink’s lively illustrations manage to tell the story quite well without dialogue. A little bit silly, but fun.

Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.4 Characters: The Big Adventures of Majoko, Vol. 1 (いたずらまじょ子の大冒険/the Big Adventures Of Majoko Book 1) First published: March 31st 2009Rating: 8.36 stars GoodReads:The Big Adventures of Majoko, Vol. 1 Review: This book is really good. I think it is like that, because it is just like Happy Happy Clover. Majoko, is a witch. Nana is Majoko’s partner. And Nana is just a human! So this story is about Majoko and Nana’s adventure’s. Its just like Happy Happy Clover’s book type. (If you read Happy Happy Clover). Instead of talking about adorable rabbits, this story is talking about a witch. Wait, its a good, nice, helping witch. Not these kind of evil spirit witch. Its a good story. Nothing scary. You won’t

Book Rating:7.8 Characters: So Not a Hero (A Hesitant Hero Book 1) First published: May 18th 2015Rating: 7.82 stars GoodReads:So Not a Hero Review: TL;DR: A misogynistic tale of the world ogling a woman’s boobs and butt when she is not busy shopping or worrying about men. Too much T & A. Too little super heroing.
