- Art is really trying my patience now, and it is odd how each issue is a different artist (of the three or four they have rotating) as again, it takes three of these digital issues to produce the print version the put out, so I find it odd they don't have one artist do a three issue run and then rotate from there instead of 8 pages or so at a time. Still on board, don't get me wrong, but man, Googe's art (something I use to semi-enjoy on Wildstorm stuff) is really rough for these old eyes now. Maybe it is the same for him

MU

Immortal Hulk #26
Immortal Hulk #27
Immortal Hulk #28
Immortal Hulk #29
- This reread has been so much fun and I am enjoying this title, one I really liked originally, so much more this time around. Can't wait for next issue's Zemnu confrontation as I really, really, loved that issue the first time. I also see, coming up, I have a Tom Taylor Immortal Hulk one shot coming up called "Great Power" It hits after  Immortal Hulk #30, but it takes place after Immortal Hulk #14. I find that somewhat odd that MU would not slide it in that spot in my read through.  Undecided

Wolverine #10 - Speaking of bad art ... Ugh ... I hate Adam Kumbert's art. I look over at DC and see how fun and dynamic his brother Andy's stuff looks (With energy his dad would be proud of) and here, in this, I just see bad, sketchy figures with boring, bland ass panels. And now he is trying to add a Deodato style to his repertoire and ... oh boy. I'm trying to stay on this as I do like Wolverine, but between the art and the writing, I think I will only last up to issue #12  Undecided

Doctor Strange #1 (1974)
Doctor Strange #2 (1974)
Doctor Strange #3 (1974)
- Reading this after Captain Marvel may have helped my enjoyment of this run, at least for the start of it as it sets my brain into the crazy mid-seventies "hey, explore any ideas" magic.
In an effort to save his beloved Clea from the clutches of the Silver Dagger (a villain I honestly had wrong my entire life ... I didn't know his goal was to purge demons from people, I thought ... ya know ... I don't know what I use to think his "thing" was  Cheesy), Doc enters the Orb of Agamotto and in doing so trips his mo-fo mind all to pieces.  Grin Strange enters the "Unreality" and finds *ahem* a talking caterpillar (explained in the pages) as well as some familiar figures that are ... not so familiar. Issue #3 is kind of a cheat as it only has two or three pages of the continuing story and throws a Lee/Ditko reprint in as most of the meat. Sneaky thing actually because if you just flipped to the first or last page, you would not have known you bought a reprint.

Captain Marvel (1973) #31-34 - Fun finish to the first Thanos vs Captain Marvel storyline.  First appearance of Drax as well as some other characters we all know and love now.  I always thought Starlin had a longer run on Captain Marvel but I've enjoyed reading these and getting context to all that has happened with Thanos in current day.

Jupiter's Circle Vol 2 #1-6 - Glad to be re-reading these.  Seeing the history before the official Jupiter's Legacy mini is very interesting.  Looking forward to starting the original next as it should match up with the Netflix series.

Marvel #4 & 5 - Not bad anthology stories but the over arc with Nightmare is kind of lame.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #7 - new arc has pulled me back in.  Iím in for this one.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #9 - Iím bored.  I thought this would have a lot more Boba Fett but itís about a comic only character named Valance.  Iím done.

Jupiterís Legacy TPB Vol 1 (Collects Jupiterís Circle #1-6) - reading this just makes me more bummed out that the Netflix series got cancelled.  So many good stories to be told that we won't get to see.  These were some great stories from the early days of the Union.  Fun reading this in chronological order.  Seeing these characters grow old is going to be very compelling.

Pride of Baghdad GN - The art in this book is absolutely amazing.  It's the story of 4 lions who escape from a zoo during a military attack on Baghdad.  All from their point of view.  Thumbs way up on this book.

Interesting special.  I'll be checking it out when it hits DCUI.  Hopefully they'll keep this team together as it is generally my favorite.

I don't buy anything -at all- anymore. If it's not on MU or DCI, I just don't even try anymore.

Kids, man. Kids...

I hear ya on that, but if Pop (me) doesn't get at least one splurge or entitlement, I am cranky. And it's not like if have a love life and spend money on dates.

Several of the highest-profile members of DC's Teen Titans will come together this fall to solve an existential mystery in a new story titled Titans United. Written by Cavan Scott with artist Jose Luis, Titans United appears to be a graphic novel-length, single-volume story judging by its listing on DC's subscription service website.

In Titans United, Nightwing, Donna Troy, Superboy, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Red Hood - a cross-section of heroes from several eras of the Teen Titans - will work together to crack a case that DC states will have one of the heroes involved questioning "their very existence" as the team goes up against some type of enemy using their own abilities and skills against them.

"The Titans face their greatest challenge - their own powers!" reads the description of Titans United from DC's subscription site. "Nightwing, Donna Troy, Superboy, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Red Hood kick off a thrilling new case that will lead one of their own to question not only their place on the team, but their very existence."

As ominous and specific as that last bit sounds, it's oddly tough to narrow down which of the Titans may be hit with this existential crisis, considering how many of the characters involved have already had their lives retconned, rebooted, or even wiped out entirely in past stories.

Right off the bat, there's Jason Todd/Red Hood, who was killed by the Joker in the seminal Batman: A Death in the Family, only to be resurrected years later when Superboy Prime managed to alter reality.

Speaking of Superboy, there's the one in Titans United who is presumably Kon-El/Conner Kent, the main user of that name now that Jonathan Kent is going by Superman in his own title. He also underwent a total reality rewrite when he was killed by Superboy Prime, resurrected, totally rebooted by the 'New 52,' and now gone back to a version of his old self - who was an artificial clone to begin with.

And of course, there's Donna Troy, whose very existence and origins have been the subject of multiple past stories that tried to reconcile the questions about how she can exist in the DC Universe with the continuity she's had - and who has been rebooted entirely multiple times to boot.

Of course, all of that is less hard to untangle now that DC has its all-in Infinite Frontier approach, in which every story and every part of DC continuity is accessible somewhere in the Omniverse - a policy meant to alleviate the stringent questions and continuity conundrums caused by decades of successive reboots and rewrites to the publisher's continuity.


Titans United is due out September 14. Watch for all of DC's September 2021 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
