As if I don't go on enough timeouts but you know, I like the outdoors. Before I go out for a while let's roll this message out from our resident geeks:
Hello there! Just thought I throw in my suggestions for the month. First up is a piece of software to keep your comic collection organized. With Comic Collecterz I can record how much each comic was, where I purchased it, what condition it's in. I'm completely blown away by how the website already has so much information on the books I have! It works with Issues, Hardcovers and Trade paperbacks. Try it at http://www.collectorz.com/comic/
Now let's get to the comics.

TODAY I TAKE THIS MEDICINE. TODAY I AM CALM. NORMAN! I EMAIL THIS TO YOU, YOU BASTARD!
My Opinion of Spiderman : Civil War, Spiderman : Back in Black & One More Day.
Do not groan at me! Groan elsewhere!
I have been following these titles starting from Spiderman civil war, Peter Parker civil war,
Back in Black to Brand New Day. I have to admit that in Civil war Spiderman stories is more interesting to follow than BIB and OMD. It all started with CW when Peter decided to reveal his identity and how everything went downhill from there. In Back in Black, the stories bring together Peter's problems with his wife, aunt May and the death of Captain America.
I felt the stories are too slow with a lot of drama between Peter Parker, Mary Jane and his fellow superheroes.
Spiderman : One More Day is another week of stories about saving aunt May from death and the deal with Mephisto. What a stupid reason it is to save someone life, and this doesn't look like Peter Parker in his true self. I always figured him much smarter than to agree to a deal with frigging Mephisto.
In conclusion I like Spiderman and I don't care what the haters (including Norman) thinks. I don't even care if this is old news. HAH!
With that we wrap up this month's Review Rail. Thanks everyone and see you again when I get back.
