Chrononauts: Futureshock #3 & 4 - Nice ending.  Not as much fun as the first series but the change to going into the future instead of the past made it pretty fun.  Would have enjoyed it more if he'd stayed politic neutral.  I could go on a rant about mis-characterization but I won't.  Despite that nitpick, the story is still pretty good and I actually enjoyed it.

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #1 - Now this is going to be fun!!  Q, the Organians, the Metrons, and the Squire of Gothos plucking out crews from the timeline (TNG crew, TOS crew, Voyager crew, and DS9 crew) for a battle royale starting next issue!!

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #2 - Squire Team: Captain Kirk, Dr McCoy, Mr Worf, Jadzia Dax, Tuvok, Miles O'Brien, and Quark.
Q Team: Captain Picard, Mr Spock, Dr Crusher, 7 of 9, Odo, LaForge, and Lt Uhuru.
Organian Team: Captain Sisko, Chakotay, Data, Sulu, Dr Bashir, Counselor Troi, and Harry Kim.
Metron Team: Captain Janeway,  Riker, Kira, Mr Scott, Tom Paris, Mr Checkov, and Lt Torres.
And the first contest begins!

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #3 - Challenge number 2 and a little treachery thrown in the mix!  It's not a oh wow story, but it is a whole lot of fun for this Trekkie.   :)

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #4 - Ah ha!  An unexpected twist!  Story is getting better with each issue.

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #5 - No crossover is complete without...the Borg!  And another familiar face as well!  Story still getting better with each issue.  Yea!

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #6 - And an ending worthy of a Star Trek Hollywood finale.   :D  This whole series was a lot of fun.  Especially seeing all of those characters interact.  Much fun was had.

Batman #87 - Interesting part 2.  I like the mystery here and all of the different characters.  Deathstroke, Penguin, Riddler, and more!

Detective Comics #1019 - And I'm done.  I normally like Tomasi but this two parter was terrible.  Doesn't bode well for his run.  If it gets better I can alway come back but for now, I'll just be reading Batman.

Criminal #11 - Why do they always think things went fine.  They never go fine.  Never.  Great issue leading up to a BIG ONE next issue!

East of West #45 - Very satisfying ending.  Great end to a great series.  I will say no more - no spoilers.   :)

Thanos #2 & 3 - interesting new telling of Gamoraís first dayís being raised by Thanos.  I give it a 3.5.  Good but not great.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Annual #1 - fun little side trip with the characters sucked into the black hole.  Nice seeing Cosmo as the major character.

Guardians of the Galaxy #6 - the attempt to resurrect Thanos wraps up nicely. Next up - looking for Rocket.

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #4

Just thought of something, are you going to read, or have you read, the ... I think it is two issue prequel to the Picard show? Or are you waiting for a price drop? If they do that?
 :)

Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #1-5 - Ugh.  I couldnít make it through this.  Stopped midway through issue 2.  Flipped through the rest and moving on. I didnít like this at all.

Yep, Yep and Yep.

The current one looks to be a little better, though I am waiting to pull the trigger on it.

Guardians of the Galaxy #6 - the attempt to resurrect Thanos wraps up nicely. Next up - looking for Rocket.

*sigh*
I had such hopes for this series, but it petered out for me as it went. Not bad, just lost all its "ooompphh"  :-\
I think Cates, once he knew he was getting Thor and getting off this title, went a little ... well, just got a little preoccupied maybe?

That said, the first issue of the *Ahem* newly relaunched Guardians  ::), with Al "The Ultimates and Immortal Hulk" Ewing is off to a grand start!!
Although I say that hating, with the fury of a thousand suns, one of the characters in the book. A character that seems to be heading towards team membership
 >:(
HATE HIM!!!
(but issue #1 is a great start for the new series!)
 :D

Is that ďPetered quilledĒ out for you?  ;D

I was actually thinking of dropping this until the Al Ewing one comes out on MU.  So yeah, Iím kind of with you on this one.

As for the Picard pre-quel, I didnít know there was one and I hadnít really thought about.  Good chance I will when the price drops.  Most likely Iíll wait for the first season to end.

Plutona Vol 1 (Collects Plutona 1-5) - itís like everything Jeff Lemire writes is awesome.  I know not everything, but dang near everything.  This is no exception. Five suburban kids find a dead superhero in the woods. And nothing goes as you expect. Another 5 star for Mr. Lemire.

Old Man Quill #6 - 7 - Finally got to the big twist that I got spoiled on six months ago.  This has been a good series and happy I can read the rest spoiler free! Iím sure this would have had more impact had I not been spoiled.  At the same time, it has been interesting reading this with that knowledge.  Looking forward to the wrap up!

Silver Surfer Black #2 - I do like this book and even enjoying the trippy art.  Especially that last page where he draws a full page...
Ego the Living Planet!
!  Yes, that was pretty cool.

I checked this out and thereís only 3 issues.  The first two have already dropped to the $1.99 price.  Iíll likely be grabbing these sooner rather than later after all.
