I officially caught up with all the Infinite titles of Batman and Detective!!! I was YEARS behind 4 months ago!!!

Batman102-106, Annual 5; Ghost-maker and Clownhunter, Tanaka as the new mayor, Bruce getting into his new 'normal' good reading still; thanks Tynion!!  :)

Detective 1029-1034; Aw, I finished Tomasi's work! Felt like the Hush stuff went by WAAAAY too fast!! Was he booted off for the new deal going forward? Love the strife with Damian. What a little dick still!!

Batman: The Detective 1; okay worth it for the Kubert art, and some cool moments as well. I actually love the inside narrative voice of 'I'm older and slower than them; dammit'

The Joker 1 & 2; so I know Joker War just happened but damned if I'm not interested in following through with this and enjoying this, especially with good ol' Jim Gordon!! Also, can anyone tell me when he stopped being Commissioner? I truly, and utterly, forgot how that happened!!!

Miles Morales Spider-man 29; okay this title got real boring about a year back, but I stepped in for fun to see where stuff was going with his Clone Saga. I've enjoyed the read of it, I have!

Gamma Flight 2; OooOoOOooo I like! feels like a perfect cousin to Ewing's Immortal Hulk, so glad to see it!!

Moon Knight 1; what is this, volume 8 by now? Doesn't matter, cuz I really enjoyed it, and I love seeing the other 'Fist' of Khonshu too!!!

Guardians of the Galaxy 16; okay, I can see why this was cancelled again. All I feel as of this moment looking at the new titles list is "umm...okay....I read it." That's the only synopsis I feel about it.

I'm keeping up; keeping ahead!

Although, I was cranky last night, or something, and did some more scanning of some stuff instead of paying attention, like...

Batman, Last Knight on Earth; you'd think I'd love reading this with Snyder and Capullo! But I mostly scanned what felt to be a predictable story. Oh well

Batman Urban Legends 1 & 2; I felt more connection to the Red Hood stories; although,....the Batman stance of "Jason's a killer; I must take him!" seems really incongruous, with, well, EVERYTHING that has happened in the last 8 months of comics!!! But I really just scrolled through the Poison Ivy/Harley, Oracle, and Outsiders stories. Didn't grab me as much.

Wonder Woman 770-771; I feel a bit lost, but so does Diana! So, good for that. It's a bit entertaining of a read. Also, my 770 issue only showed every other page! And then, again with my crappy Saturday night, I only parsed through the Young Diana pages.

Flash 769; okay, bouncing through time is fine. Nothing spectacular here, if only to say Bart is there, somewhere, and all is good with that!

Nightwing 79; the best! I love the art showing the movement Nightwing, and I just love his relationship with Babs. Solid, and great issue!

Things are getting really busy around here which isnít leaving much free tim for comics.  I did at least get through the Black Hammers this weekend.

Black Hammer: Visions #7 - I liked this meta story of Ms Moonbeam. A forgotten minor character who dreams of more!

Black Hammer: Visions #8 - The Horseless Rider.  Not a bad little tales. An origin and an ending.

Black Hammer Reborn #4 - Whoa! I didnít expect that ending! Great issue with more Colonel Weird craziness!

Black Hammer Reborn #5 - Now the world is literally going off the rails.  The more learn the more questions there are.  And now a super villain team? Oh yeah!

***************************************************

Just some quick notes on a few ...

The Joker series, as Jeff told me, is more of a Gordon series. Me likey. Thanks, Jeff

Also enjoyed the Infinite Frontier stuff quite a bit!

Legion seems slow, for the time it takes to read, but enjoying it. I need to get back to its "1k year in the future" counterpart

Thor was fun as was MK (although the art took me a bit to fully absorb. Not bad, just wasn't hitting from the get go)

Symbiote has PAD all over it. Dialog seems s little dated, sure, but still is just fun. And he writes Peter's humor correctly.

F'n Hickman's Avenger stuff is really good. Just really F'n good!!!! Don't think I read past issue 5 or so originally. I think

Locke & Key/ Sandman - If you love Locke and Key you will be okay, but being a fan of both titles will certainly be a bonus.

Thank God Black Hammer: Visions is done. Last issue was okay, character wise (story was weak AF ... like most of them)

Clear #1 - a murder mystery! I like it already. The future sci-fi aspect only makes it more intriguing. Thumbs up!

Deep Beyond #8 - a great escape and all answers can now be revealed! Or will they? Iíd recommend reading this collected. It would be easier to follow that way. But I do like the story a lot.

Jupiterís Legacy: Requiem #4 - the art is so distracting. Not that itís bad because itís not. But itís so different from Quitelyís art that I canít recognize the characters.  Makes it even harder since they have aged so much.  Otherwise Iím enjoying the story.
