Batman: Gotham Nights #9 - Sad tale for Two-Face that I really liked.  The Joker myth origin was ok.

Batman: The Adventure Continues #4, 5 & 6 - Fun Deathstroke story.  I do like this but I just don't have the time to invest in it.  If you liked the old cartoon you'll like these from Paul Dini.

Birthright #44 - Epic battle between Mikey and Lore!!  This is the issue you've been waiting for!  Thumbs up.

DCeasead: Hope At Worlds End #5 - Well this was a much better issue than the past couple.  I enjoyed this one.  Even with the silly Kite-Man joke.   ;D

Family Tree #6 - Good issue. Was surprised to see a certain character in this one!

Giant Size X-Men: Magneto #1 - Really good issue.  Makes you wonder what Emma is up to.

Gideon Falls #22 - Two Lemire comics in the same week! And this was a good start to the new arc. It痴 getting crazier.

Strange Adventures #2 & 3 - I知 not sure why theLeague would be investigating Adam Strange.  But that aside, this is a good series.  I like the jumps from past to present.
Strange Adventures #3

I知 not sure why the League would be investigating Adam Strange.

Now I haven't read the latest issue yet, and as you know my memory is crap but
I thought he was accused of killing a girl that publicly accused him of genocide so he asked Batman to find the truth and Bats sent Mr. Terrific. Yeah?

So I think it is more of a favor than anything, even though he didn't want Micheal doing it. And yeah, I could be way off about the entire thing ...  him asking Batman to look into it and the crime, but I thought I remembered that.
Though it is also highly likely that I am wrong  :D

That痴 right. I had forgotten about that accusation. It makes sense now.

Doctor Aphra #40 - The end of the Doctor Aphra series.  Only fitting it includes a final confrontation with Darth Vader.  Even though the story continues on in a different book, this was a good finale to the series.

Immortal Hulk #28 - More Hulk goodness.  I値l admit it, I felt bad for the security guard.

King Thor #4 - And that痴 it for Jason Aaron and his epic Thor era.  Pretty good ending.  I知 gonna miss seeing those grand daughters. And Thori.  Even if others write them, I doubt it will ever be the same.

When I went back to my LCS for bags & boards, Gib (the owner) had a table set up with random shit for FCBD 2020. I picked up X-Men, My Little Pony, and the Weirn Books.

Sweet! I need to get my hands on that X-Men.

Guardians of the Galaxy #12 - Final issue of this run.  Some really nice moments with Rocket and the team.

Incoming #1 - An 80-Page prologue for the upcoming Empyre event.  It basically shows you what's going to be coming up in all of the different comics tie-ins as well as the main event.  Plus more of Al Ewing's mysterious Masked Raider!

Dr. Strange #1 - At first I was thinking that I might skip this series as it didn't seem to exciting.  Then that changed halfway through and I thought - yep, I'm on board this one!

Web of Black Widow #5 - Good ending to a good mini.  Love the cast that surrounds Black Widow.

Hawkeye: Freefall #1 - Speaking of one of that cast.... Great start to what I hope will be a great mini!!

The Old Guard #1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 - I bought this because it was on sale and it was a Greg Rucka tale.  I had NO IDEA until after I bought it that it was a new Netflix series that my non-comic book friends were watching!  So I read this first before I watch the series.  And I loved it.  I hope the show is just as good.

Thor #1-4 - Wasn稚 sure how I壇 like a Thor not written by Jason Aaron. Turns out, I can love it! I like this series.  A lot of fun with Galactus, SilverSurfer, and Beta Ray Bill!

Jeff, I'm not sure you seen Rodney's post, about 4 above, so want to point it out ...
 :)

Glad you are digging the Surgeon Strange ... I love the guest star. Well, love how they are using him. Although I can't remember if he shows up in issue one, maybe it was issue two or .... so ... nevermind
 :D

And yes, Thor is really cool. Not a fan of the design, but the story is classic kinda cosmic fun
