Better than the last arc, though still kinda missing something. Love the "villain" however. She is what Marvel's Medusa could be if she just broke bad  Wink

The next arc preview looks good. Still on this title !!!

Aquaman #3 - I'm done. I gave "The Rule of Three" and I am out. Abnett, please make up with Lanning!!!

Hellblazer Rebirth - Eh, a typical Constantine story without much flare. It was okay. Not sure I will continue or not.

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey Rebirth - Gave it a shot and I don't think I'll be getting this. Nothing horrible, other than Barbara's huge, manly legs, especially on ... the title page I think it was (when she first comes 'swooping' in), but I have enough to read. Of course when the proper #1 hits I may jump in again anyway.

Titans 1 wasn't bad but it was more setup.  I like that they are bringing back some classic Titan's villains.  Still too early to tell how Abnett will do here.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns 1 - I liked this.  All the players are getting put into place.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Rebirth - So this is going to be a solo series?  I liked this first issue enough to see where it goes.

Yeah, that Abnett aspect is scary, and while I haven't read this yet, I am giving Dan a long leash with this title. I just love this team.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns 1 - I liked this.  All the players are getting put into place.

Liking this also. Much more than the other "Lanterns". If I drop one, this will not be it.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Rebirth - So this is going to be a solo series?  I liked this first issue enough to see where it goes.


I am going to try this as this is the "Anti-Trinity"
Redhood - Batman
Bizarro - Superman
Artemis - Wonder Woman
I like that aspect.

Oh thats right.  Red Hood was the focus on this book and it was pretty good.  I'll pick this up for awhile to see what it's like.

Ultron vs zombies was better than I thought it was going to be.
The premise is also pretty cool. Simple, but cool
 Smiley

And I really liked Sinister Squadron. Not so much Ghost Racers (didn't finish). I think Korvac was ... damn ... I can't remember that one. Hmmm, may had to go back and see that one again. E for Extinction I am pretty sure I really didn't like. I think  Grin I think there was only one of the X books that I enjoyed and the rest were pretty rough. E is not the one I think I liked ... I think.
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I'm gonna read the new Batgirl tonight.

I started E in floppy when it came out and dropped it after the first issue.  But my OCD seems to kick in when I don't have to pay for it and I'm reading all of the Tie-Ins.  So, I'm not expecting to be wowed by it at all so maybe it will beat my expectations.

Understand completely.  Cheesy

Batgirl #1 - Okay, really like the art, but ... if this stays on my reading list I think that the art will be the reason. At least for the short term. Not sure I care enough about Batgirl anymore. I think I enjoy her as an element of the "Bat-Family" more than as a solo character. Kinda miss Oracle more than I enjoy Batgirl ...? Yeah? Eh, up in the air right now for this title.

E is for Extinction was much better than I remembered. I must have been in a bad mood when I read that first issue way back when.  Bunn did a good job recapturing Morrisons X-Men run.
