Just so ya know, Jeff, read JLDark Annual after #13 and before #14. I think that is right. That is how I read them and the annual flowed right into issue 14, though the Annual may have indeed come out after #12? Maybe? Not sure. Maybe you have it right as listed. Me no know.

Good catch!  I actually wrote the numbers wrong.  I'm reading issues 13, Annual, 14 - not 12 & 13.

I edited my post and put the right numbers in - thanks!  I did know to read the annual first, thanks to your post from the previous week.  So thanks again!

Sweet!

Once you read it, let me know if you have seen/heard from THAT character within the last few years, because I only recall them from ... well, not wanting to say yet, but I have not seen nor heard from them in many a year. Not that they are THAT great, at all.

DCeased 4 - Is anyone left alive?  Crazy fun.

Freedom Fighters 9 - I get the feeling this is coming to a close.  I wonder how sales are?  This issue itself was good.  Love the Plasstic Man.

Detective Comics 1007 - End of the Spectre team up.  Loved seeing these two together.

Age of X-Man: Nextgen 2 - Continues to get interesting.

Age of X-Man: The Amazing Nightcrawler 2 - This was good too.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man 4 - End of this arc, I think.  Very good.  Loved Johnny being in this arc with Spidey.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 - This is picking up.  Next issue should be a big one.

Immortal Hulk 15 - Wow.  Just when I think it's getting too creepy an issue like this comes out.  One of the best.

========================================

Detective Comics 1008 - A Joker one shot story.  Almost reminded me of the old Adam West days with the Joker's silly scheme.  I enjoyed it for it what it is.  A simple good time.

Detective Comics 1009 & 1010 - Part 1 & 2 of new arc facing Deadshot.  I like it so far.  Interesting story with the old WWII vets.

Justice League Dark 13 - A sort of one shot interlude setting things up for the next story arcs.  Nice little break and the origins of Dr Fate and John Constantine.

Justice League Dark Annual 1 - Wow what a great story!  Classic Swamp Thing.  And the ending adding to the setup of the next arc has me excited.

Justice League Dark 14 - Great start!!  I'm going to like this magical version of the Legion of Doom.

Martian Manhunter 7 & 8 - We get some back story on J'onn's partner and more story progression on the missing girl.  Still good.

Inferior Five 1 - The guys over at iFanboy hated this giving it a 2 out of 5 stars.  I don't know what they're talking about.  I liked it.  It's a setup issue like most issue #1's so the mystery has just started.  I'm in for this story.

Criminal 7 - Finally getting the Ricky Lawless story.  Good book as always.

Psi-Lords 3 -  Shocked  I did NOT see that ending coming!  This is getting good.

Amazing Spider-Man #26
Amazing Spider-Man #27 - Dang it!!! No issue at the shop!!!!! However, thinking I am done with this title.
Amazing Spider-Man #28
Amazing Spider-Man #29
- Yeah, I may come back, to check in on the new villain we have yet to really see, but ...
Dr Strange #17
Dr Strange #18
- A decent Galactus story with a ending that we have had to endure before  Angry
Strikeforce #1 - Yawn. If this was better, it is what Savage Avengers should have been. But I've no interest
Powers of X #5 - Wow! Another great issue.
Was that Krakoa all mechanized at the end of the issue? Looked like his underground trunk thing where the pods are kept
Shocked

========================================

Jessica Jones: Purple Daughter 3 - Great ending to this story.  Heck every issue was great.  Pick this up and read it!

Spider-Man: Life Story 1 - This is going to be so much fun.  This first issue, 1960's, was really good.  Not to mention I love Bagley on Spider-Man (any version).  I'm looking forward to the next issue.

Thor 11 - Prelude to War.  Thank gawd the artist changed!!  This was sooooo much better.  And the prelude was good too.  Looking forward to the War of Realms.

Uncanny X-Men 14 - I'm really enjoying this.  Salvador Larroca is so great to see again on X-Men.  This is a great team too.  Cyclops, Havok, Wolverine, Madrox, Majik, Wolfsbane, Karma, and Mirage.  And add Chamber in this issue.  Lots of fun!

Venom 12 - Another good comic.  Fast read.  Should be interesting with the new character in Eddie's life.

Blade Runner 2019 #3
- Not sure if this is ongoing or mini, but I'm damn sure diggin' it!! Art is amazing, story is solid
Spawn #299 - Getting closer to #300
Psi-Lords #2 - I ... just can't get into this yet. Jeff, I know you like it, I hope I will soon  Undecided Not giving up
Black Hammer: Age of Doom #12 - I'ma just gonna post my thoughts on this with this other title ...
Black Hammer/JLA #3 - *sigh* What can I say here? Like Jeff, I am a huge fan of Lemire. I really like his writing, but ... BUT ... this was a very disappointing two issue read. With Age of Doom, what started out so good, just went to bland slop. Yeah, I kind of like the ending, kinda, but around issue 7 or so this revamped title fell like a rock for me.
And then I read the JLA/BH "joint" which would contain some of the most ridiculous Lemire I have read. His Batman ... dear lord his Batman. Let me get this straight,
Batman, one of the smartest characters in the DCU confuses a barn for the Batcave? Needs Cyborg to tell him some gizmo will not work? Doesn't see a freaking robot in a box, right beside him, after it being there for, what seems to them, to be about 6 months?
CRAP. Come on, Lemire, stop it. You're being lazy as hell right now!!!! You're better than this. Maybe don't write as much? Something.
 Angry

EDIT - Got so mad I forgot to place my two Big-Two reads !!!
 Grin

Dr. Strange #19 - The new, upcoming Dr. Strange title's title (Surgeon Supreme) is explained here  Wink

Action Comics #1015 - An okay issue that I forgot was co-starring "Naomi". A character that had a mini that I was going to read before this issue, so I wouldn't get spoiled by anything.
DOH!

I am enjoying it but it might just not be your cup of tea.  It picks up in issue 3 but if your not liking it by the end of issue 3 it's just not for you.

I think he started spreading himself to thin before finishing Black Hammer out.  I really thought the whole crossover with DC universe was a very bad sign for the series.  I still haven't gotten to issue 12 but this doesn't bode well.

The Fuse Vol 4: Constant Orbital Revolutions - And we're done.  Great series and good ending wrapping everything up.  Big thumbs up for this series.
