The 2017 Reading Thread - THE ULTIMATE EDITION - October

I'm doing terrible about logging everything I've read this year. Either the shine's off the apple or all the craziness of the past summer really caught up to me. Either way I'm happy the rest of you still are enjoying doing this.

Rules are simple: Log everything you've read this year. Just edit your existing post or you (and we) will get confused trying to keep up. Bold the stuff you really dig. At the end of each month I'll start a new thread and you can pick a "winner" from your favorite books. You can focus on just trades (which is usually what I do), or just write about the good stuff you've read, or go completely nuts (like I plan to this year) and log EVERYTHING you read.

    The "I am posting this really behind schedule" edition:

    Amazing Spiderman Omnibus vol 1

    The Autobiography of Jean Luc Picard

    Slugfest: Inside the 50 year battle between Marvel and DC

    Investigating Lois Lane: The turbulent history of the Daily Planet's Ace Reporter.

    No Sept Winner. The Spiderman Omnibus took all month and spilled over into October.

    =Slugfest: Inside the 50 year battle between Marvel and DC

    Any good? I think the book I did on Carmine Infantino with my buddy Jim Amash is the most-cited source the author used. Not that I'm counting. (I was counting.)

    I did enjoy it. It is a fairly quick read and it does not break a lot of new ground but it is a good overview of the rivalry.

    I may be misremembering this (all the books I read tend to get jumbled together in my head) but my main issue with the book was that that author liked to occasionally throw in his opinions as facts without any clarification.

    Hmm, that would make it a non-starter with me. Thanks!
