Okay, trying this again
 Cheesy

Got back on board Action and Superman (I was out for about two issues of each, I think) and while that Superman issue I was talking about liking (the same one Jimmy also enjoyed) is still on my mind, I just don't know where to rank them honestly. I keep thinking about Bendis, and ... well ... I am glad DC is allowing the creative teams to "finish" their runs by giving them an "arc ending Special" issue
 Undecided

01 - Mister Miracle - My favorite DC book right now. Best use of the 3 main factors in comic creating- writing, art, colors.
02 - Doomsday CLock - An incredible recreation/original comic happening before my eyes.
03 - Justice League of America - Really digging this arc. totally agree with Jimmy here. A unique title voice here with Priest
04 - The Wildstorm - Not sure I should count this or not, but a top 5 DC book is what it is so, here it is. Ignore if needed
05 - Batman - The Worlds Finest arc is the ONLY reason this is back this high. Love King, but his Batman ... HIS BATMAN!
06 - Michael Cray - May as well throw this here too. Deserves the spot, don't get me wrong, just not sure if it should count
07 - Deathstroke - would have been 3rd before I read that last Annual. Ugh, still shaking from that issue. Not good.
08 - Titans - I know, I know, I am just as shocked as you. But the last 2 or 3 issues have felt like old times. Pelletier helps
09 - Detective Comics - Tragic comics always end up lower for me and this has been sad lately  Grin
10 - Aquaman - Still a beautiful comic and though it IS dragging a tad, I am still here enjoying the ride
11 - Super Sons - Dropped way down after that horrible x-over crap, but I know the potential is still there
12 - Superman - That "caring" issue really hit home for me. Jumped this title up a spot or two for sure.
13 - Hal Jordan - Just started to get into this and then ... Zod  Undecided ...  Grin. Okay, yes, still pretty good, or at least decent
14 - Silencer - Another title I am not sure if I should place here. Really just okay. May be dropped next issue anyway.
15 - Sideways - again, like Silencer, not sure this belongs, nor will last, but the Rocafort art sure does!!!
16 - Metal - Not a good "event", at all, but want to see it through. Better now that I read more "tie-ins"  Angry Angry Angry
17 - Nightwing - Actually really good arc, top ten DC maybe, but going to drop in another two issues, soooooo
18 - Action Comics - Meh, just trying to see how it ends, really  Tongue
19 - Batman and the Signal - Yawn
20 - Damage - Yep, a comic even below Action in my eyes. Wow, that was rough. DC's Hulk without the charm  Cheesy Cheesy

I really am waiting until they are done, but I am looking forward to getting into the following DC mini's and hope to see them on the list next time around -

The Demon: Hell is Earth
Deadman
Black Lightning
Batman: Creature (or Creatures ..??) of the Night
Batman: White Knight
Mera: Queen of Atlantis (spoilers for Aquaman, yeha?  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy)
Ragman

Hope they are all winners. I know Jeff is diggin on the Deadman one. Hope the rest are just as good or at least interesting.

I just finished latest Detective 974.  This is my #1 now.  And yes Perry, it is a tragic tragic end but so well written.  Actually stirred up emotions for me which comics rarely do anymore.

It is good, I just ... I don't know ... the Batwoman thing kinda got to me. I think they may be going down a road they may regret with her.

Which I guess is better, actually, than just another "Bat".

Infact, Hell, I convinced myself ... now I am hoping for it.

As for Super Sons ... I am hoping, that maybe, they are just changing the name? Maybe? Hopefully?

Ironically I had decided to drop Super Sons and didn't pick up this weeks issue.  Makes me wonder if I should go ahead and finish out the series.  Hmmmm.  Four more issues?  Yeah, I can afford to finish it out.

Bummed about Tynion leaving Detective.  I hate to lose my favorite DC title.  But I'll with hold judgement until I see who the new team is.
