Reading Wednesday II: Electric Boogaloo

I almost forgot that I was going to do this today! Oops, obviously all of these books aren't improving my memory any...

Just finished: Thor Vol 2: Who Holds the Hammer? Really interesting and fun! Not as good as the first volume of Jane Foster's run as Thor, though, and I have some problems with how they handled things.

Currently reading: the Peripheral by William Gibson, which is rather interesting but a little heavy going.

Coming up: ALL THE THINGS! But, more specifically, Justice League vol 2: the Villain's Journey

I thought that Thor Vol 2 was pretty interesting, though I agree with you on how they handled some things.

I definitely liked it a lot! I think the main problems came from how Secret Wars happened, and the longer arc that they obviously had planned got squashed because of it.

Indeed! I'm really enjoying most of the things I'm reading at the moment. :D

What were the things you disliked about Thor Vol. 2? (I haven't read it, but I don't mind spoilers.)

I just felt that it was too squashed for my tastes. They obviously had a big plot planned out, but I got the feeling that Secret Wars meant that it got a little smooshed together. As a result the pacing was a little off, and some of the moments felt a little out of nowhere.

I still really enjoyed it! But I just get the impression that it could've been a lot better, and that makes me a little sad. :(

Ahh, yeah, it seems like Secret Wars did that to a lot of things.
