Suicide Squad #9 - I really thought I hated this issue. And I was mentally tagging all the things I hated so I could write them here.  And even though I saw it coming...I didn’t see the part after that coming!  Hopefully you know what I’m talking about if you read this.  And just like that...BAM! I loved this issue.

That Texas Blood #3 - Another good issue. But I have some minor gripes. And they are gripes that only someone from Texas would have.  First off, the character goes to a ranch in Irving.  Well, Irving is a suburb right in the middle of Dallas and Ft Worth.  It’s where the Cowboys used to play football.  There’s not a ranch in 20 miles of that town!  You can’t tell where Dallas ends and Irving begins.  It’s all city and suburbs.  Second they show a sign where Irving’s slogan is “We Shoot Straight With You.” That slogan belongs to the east Texas town where my brother in law lives - Gun Barrel City.  Yes - that is the towns real name which is why it’s slogan makes sense and is funny.  In the grand scheme of things for the purpose of this story these things don’t matter but wouldn’t it have been cooler to use Gun Barrel City as the name of the town?  And there are lots of ranches out there.  Other than those nit picky things - great story progression and I’m anxious to peal more layers of this onion.

Juggernaut #1 - Decent first issue setup stuff.  Taking on the Hulk next issue is promising.

Is this just a Juggy story by itself? Just a mini, not an Swords tie-in? I haven't decided to get this yet so kinda curious. I know it isn't a "part" of the Swords storyline, but does it tie-in at all is what I guess I mean
 Cheesy

Nope. Nothing to do with the X-world or the crossover event.  You can even wait for it to hit Marvel Unlimited if you want.

Sweet. Waiting!
Thanks

Told my LCS guy to put me down for nine issues of Endless Winter.

Yeah, I don't blame ya. I'm kinda intrigued by that as well. But may try to wait on that one as DCU is soon only waiting 6 months to put stuff up on the site.

Although reading a "Winter" tale in the heat of Summer may throw the whole damn thing off

I loved Empyre ...

Wow, that's good. You seem to be one of the few but damn glad it hit hard for some. I think, for me, somehow (I can't put my finger on it) that the FF side that was good, was good, but still had a Slott flavor to it that bugged me. Plus, the Coati (sp?) never seemed too much of a threat. They were, but ... hell, I don't know. Glad you dug it though

Also as for X of Swords, I can't blame ya. 22 issues is a bit much for a inner title event, considering it doesn't have any "tie-ins"
But dang it ... I'm in for it
 Grin
(then dropping almost all the X-books, but they have me for now)

Hawkman #1-4 - I enjoyed this.  Maybe it reads better when it’s free.   Grin

 Cheesy
It may well have.
It wasn't terrible, but I lost interest after a few issues. Not due to story, or art, per se, but I think my head was not in the right space at the time. I kept trying to tie stuff in, fill the lacking history I have and as I am not knowledgeable on older Hawk stuff, other than he reincarnates  Grin, I was getting lost a little I think. I probably should have just let the book come to me instead of trying to force total understanding of a subject into my head all at once
 Undecided

Good news is you will get the new origin/history a lot sooner than I did  Grin (Which again, I LOVE the new one!!!)

Apparently all he was doing was ruining the Justice League movie for Ray Fischer and Zach Snyder, according to Ray Fischer

Yeah, ole Ray is calling out everyone aint he. Haha, WB, Joss Wheadon, Johns, ... Now he has Aquaman by hs side though so I don't know what to think!

X of Swords: Creation #1 [...] I think everyone was right.  It's got to do with Excalibur; the swords in Cable; Apocalypse; and who knows what else!

Well I think the sword in Cable may be involved, but the story of the sword, with the ... others that were involved ... is not the main push like I had thought after a few issues of Cable. It became clear that the X of swords was not going to be about that certain planet shall we say
 Grin

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #10 - Another nothing issue.  This things swings pretty regularly from "eh" to really good.  This week was "eh".

DAMN IT!

Juggernaut #1 - Decent first issue setup stuff.  Taking on the Hulk next issue is promising.

 Cheesy

Not much for me so far. Just one  Grin -

Cimmerian: People of the Black Circle #1 - Finally finished this. Ablaze is trying to go through all the Robert E. Howard Conan stories so there is nothing new here that I haven't read 50 times over, but the art is still hard for me to get past. Again, not that it is bad, just doesn't fit. Still, I will be getting the next (last) issue of this story as well to support a good thing (overall good thing at least)  Grin

Flash #70, 71, & 72 - Flash Year One retelling of his origin.  Nice update to the first days of being Flash.  I had heard this was good and it doesn't disappoint.  Thumbs up.

Nailbiter Returns #4 - More serial killers.  More death.  And a not so unexpected twist!

RAI #7 - Hmmm.  My theories may be wrong since....well I won't spoil but this was a good one!  Going to be really fun when these characters collide!

The Boys: Dear Becky #4 - Still fun watching the Boys at work again.  And getting a lot of insight into Butcher's thinking.  That's a scary thought!

DCeased: Hope at Worlds End #10 - Another nothing issue.  This things swings pretty regularly from "eh" to really good.  This week was "eh".

Family Tree #8 - Wrap up to the second arc and things have gotten crazier.  I'm ready to see how we got to the upcoming time jump.

Juggernaut #1 - Decent first issue setup stuff.  Taking on the Hulk next issue is promising.

Locke & Key: In Pale Battalions Go #1 - Good first issue.  I like a whole new tale in this universe of keys taking place in the past.  I hope we get a lot more of these.

My first reaction was “no way!”.  But he actually makes sense and I agree that comics should be sold in grocery stores, Walmart, Target, etc.

And it does look like DC might be doing some of this.
