SWEET!!!

I wonder if Bendis made them do that? Makes sense. I know he does it with all his creator owned and he did it at Marvel, maybe he will start a trend. A great, fantastic trend.
 Grin

Okay, didn't get to the LCS until today, so I was able/forced ( Cheesy) to read some older stuff. Man, I forgot how that FF "Four" started. Almost as bad/sad as Morrison's 1234  Grin, but I got through the bad stuff in the first three issues and am now at the good, lets be happy stuff.
 Grin
I hope

Also, have not been a fan of Duggan's current GoTG run or as it was called Infinity Countdown and it is now called Infinity War, but I will say it has gotten a lot better for me since the "Countdown" turned into "War"
 Grin
Still a little bit "wait ... why would ... what?" happening, but I am digging it.

Justice League #1 - Rereading this to try and better my enjoyment level. So far, it isn't working. Hope it gets better for me around the time it did for Jeff.

FF 1234 #4 - A better ending than I remember. But those first three issues were ... kinda tough reading.
FF "4" #1
FF "4" #2
FF "4" #3
- Yeah, I hope issue #4 brings that joy I have been trying to find in my FF  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Infinity Countdown #5
Infinity War Prime #1
Infinity War #1
Infinity War #2
- not sure if it is because I read so many in a row or if this is just getting better for me, but I enjoy it now.

Gonna try and knock out -

Action Comics #2 (especially now that I have a recap!!  Grin)
Adventures of the Super-Sons #1 (of 12)

I forget; is Adventures of Super-Sons supposed to take place 'before' the Super Sons title itself? Or is it directly picking up again after that aforementioned title, but PB? (PB=Pre-Bendis)

I haven't heard it is a pre-title, so I would assume (and you where that leads  Cheesy) that it is continuing from the first run. But maybe after I read it more will become clear

Thanks to a trip to the garage to get a rattle under my car looked at, I was able to read a couple issues while waiting and pounding the free coffee.
 Cheesy

Justice League #2
Justice League #3
Justice League #4
Justice League #5
Justice League #6
- It is getting better, but still too similar to the movie Annihilation. I mean, waay to similar.  Undecided
Detective Comics #987 - I had heard this issue is where the new Outsiders team is formed so I had to take a look. I'm glad I did. Now I know I will not need to add the new Outsiders to my list of reads when it hits in November.
 Grin

FF "4" #4 - Finished the first four issues of Four's Four  Wink

Black Hammer: Age of Doom #4 - Top Five Title Each And Every Month
Cold Spots #1 - Art just sucked the joy out of this horror mini for me. Done after one.
Redneck #14 - Speaking of Recap Pages, come on Donny! And yes, Tweet sent to request it from now on  Grin
The Magic Order #3 - This has been really good. Can't wait for the Netflix show that is around the corner!
EDIT - Ice Cream Man #6 - I forgot about this one. This title is like the Twilight Zone. Really interesting stories that semi-tie-in to a larger theme/idea. This one, with the title "Neapolitan" for example followed a character that went to the Ice Cream truck and got a triple scoop, one each Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry and then as he walked home, crossing an intersection, a version of himself was sent in three different ways along three different paths. One straight ahead, one to the left and one to the right. Each following page contained three panels, one panel of each path/story of how this guys life was altered all because of the direction he walked that day. One where he left the truck and bumped into a girl and we witnessed his life from that meeting, one where he turned and met an injured dog and we are shown his life that came from that meeting and finally another, more sinister life that came from going the third direction. Each panel was colored with a certain hue (Pink, cream and light brown) to represent each flavor. It was pretty cool.

Able to knock out a couple more, but nothing like I wanted to get to. Bur I knew that going in
 Cheesy

Action Comics #2  Cheesy Loved all the Post-Its on that first page. Also like how this is more Daily Planet centric. And that last page? Whaaaat???
Superman #2 - I still hate this Rozar whatever, Barry was a little too funny thanks to movie Flash, but still had a cool moment of geeky when we saw Supe's just standing there, protecting Earth.
