Lot's of issues went on sale so I'm catching up faster than expected.  I'm taking Thursday off from work so I can go to the season opener hockey game.  Dallas Stars vs Boston Bruins.  Maybe I'll see Wringer there.   Cheesy

But with a day of leisure, I'm hoping to read through a lot of this on Thursday.  We shall see.   Wink

Got a jump during my THREE HOUR wait today and the DMV.  Probably could have read them all but enjoyed listening to the Vietnam Vets sitting next to me reminisce about their time in the war.

House of X 6 - And there we are.  The new normal for the mutants.  And Wow.  Sabertooth.

Millennium 2 - I'm going to hate this new Legion.  I can already tell.  They should have hired Hickman instead of Bendis for this reboot.  I'll still give it a fair shot, but it's not the Legion of Super-Heroes.  It's something else.

Lois Lane 4 - Love that Renee Montoya is back to being the Question  AND that the original Question is here as well.  Fun.

Batman 74 - Glad this arc is over.

Batman 75 - interesting start to city of Bane.  I like it so far.

Batman Secret Files 2 - Not bad. Im interested in seeing Psycho Pirate in the City of Bane storyline.

Just remember ...all you feelings about Legion is how I feel about his Superman.

Although...I bet his Legion ends up worse.

Batman 76 & 77 - I didn't think I'd like City of Bane but I do!  This is kind of fun.

Sinestro: Year of the Villain 1 - Very interesting plot.  The whole Micron society is fascinating.

Black Mask: Year of the Villain 1 - This was OK but wouldn't Clayface have been a better choice for this caper?

Justice League Dark 15 - Another thumbs up.  Glad I came back to this title.

I'm not ready to say it's going to be bad but it's just not the Legion of Super-Heroes.  It may very well be interesting and the characters could win me over but they will just be something else.  Kind of like Abnett and Lannings Legion.  I really loved the heck out of that series but it wasn't the Legion of Super Heroes.  And that's what I really wanted to have back.  My old Legion - not some new team I don't have a connection too.

See how I go back and forth from "not gonna like it" to "gonna give it a chance"?  I'm so conflicted.

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

Ascender 5 - Finally moving the story along and man, what a heart jabber.

Black Hammer: Age of Doom 12 - I have mixed feelings about the ending.  For the most part I like how it ended.  Makes sense and brings things full circle.  But I don't like...
that their memories seem to be totally erased and they don't even remember who they were.
  Although, I might be ok with that too.  Like I said mixed.  I will have to go ponder on this one.

Black Science 42 - The penultimate issue before the big finale. 
Interesting the way Remender is giving us two different outcomes to this story.
  I like it!

Bone Parish 12 - Final Issue.  This ended way too fast.  I hope they come back for another 12 issues.  This has been a great series and the characters need more time to finish developing. 
At least, the ones that are left.

Ice Cream Man 14 - Man this comic is F*&^ing weird.  Cheesy

Doctor Mirage 1 - An ok start.  Typical first issue setup. 

Killers 2 - This is getting more fun.  All the Ninja's are interesting characters (except maybe Ninja-F) and an all out battle is probably in the coming future.

I know what you mean.  I'm reading the six month old stuff in MU and buying the new Hickman stuff as it comes out.  And I love both.  I think Uncanny X-Men was headed in a good direction from my MU reading and not sure it needed the big Hickman reboot (which I also love).  I would have been fine if they kept going this way with X-Men and let Hickman go reboot a DC team that I will not mention.   Grin

I'm behind on my updates as I finished these off over the weekend.  Probably not going to get to that Doom Patrol TBP but should finish up the Marvel stuff.

Age of X-Man: X-Tremists 2 - Better than the first issue but that's not saying much.

Black Widow 3 - Is it bad sign that I remember liking this but I can't remember what it was about?

Doctor Strange 12 - This was good to.  Looking forward to the new arc.

Invaders 3 - Man Namor is a D*&^.  Oh wait, I said that for the last issue.   Cheesy  Good issue and good series.  I hope it holds up.
