I shall soldier on and post in Jeff's stead as well!!

That said, as I open the DC app...It is WITHIN ONE MONTH of picking up where I last bought my actual hard copy , er, floppy copy issues! I picked up the app at just the right time! LOL

That said:

Adventures of the Super Sons 6-10: Damn you Bendis for what you took from DC fans. THIS is Jon, not your bullshit. Love this series; can't say enough thanks to Tomasi for his work on the Super books for the 4 years he did.

Hawkman 10-12: A big Hawkman spectacle for all Hawkmen everywhere. I think it helps clean up a lot of what got done wrong to Carter after N52...and I think it entirely skips over Death of Hawkman too? Oh well, that's fine!!

Marvel Unlimited
The life of Captain Marvel 1-5: A pretty decent story, actually! Does a small reset on her origin, which I think does a good change to make her more than the 'damsel to (original) Captain Marvel's distress' who just happened to get the best superpowers ever. Makes the character feel a little more worthwhile. I will pick up with that series...which is over a year old as of its Jan 9,2019 publishing. So I get 6 months to read!

Amazing Spider-man 30: Whatever. This title just feels...poor. Be nice if it actually told some small stories instead of a 5 month event after a 5 month event.

Daredevil 13: hee hee great stuff! However, making Fisk a bit too much like the TV show Fisk is not quite how I want to see the character run.

Guardians of the Galaxy 11: Still waiting for this title to prove it has any legs to stand up to Abnett and Lanning's work, which set the new benchmark 16 years ago for what GotG books should be.

Immortal Hulk 26: Back on track!!! Heh heh heh heh...I love a slightly mad Banner who has a plan. At least I think he's mad.  Cool In any case, when Banner has a path with a goal, and a plan for it, bad things happen!!

Fantastic Four...754?: Sorry Perry...but I like the ideas coming out, and I enjoy my time reading far. I wouldn't put this on any pedestal, but it's better than other Slott fare so far!!

I know I read more ... but I can't think of any as of yet ... will have to update later I guess.

Dare Devil #1
Dare Devil #2
Dare Devil #3
- Pretty darn good I can say that! Very interested in seeing why this cop is so gung-ho. There has to be something with that ... doesn't there? Maybe not. Still, enjoyed what I have read so far and always like the artist draws DD. The first time I saw this artist, whose name escapes me right now, he was drawing the x-over mini with DD, Spidey and Punisher. And guess who I saw at the end of issue #3

Marco Chechetto I think is the spelling. Good looking book, agreed!! Glad to hear it has hit well, I'm still really enjoying all of it up to and through issue 13 so far!!

Seems the reasoning was "an ill fit between her and production"
her leaving was agreed by both parties as she hated the long hours that the lead role demanded so much that, from the one side, she was being a real pain in the ass on set. Now, if true I have to ask myself was she purposely being a pain because of the role and the low luster accolades for the show and used that as a way out or was she really just tired of lead role requirements? Either way, that kind of reasoning, again if true, will only hurt her chances going down the line. I mean, who wants to hire or work with someone that complains about the acting hours all the time? Especially when you are the "star".

Of course maybe she will state otherwise. Not about it being an ill fit, as she has kinda agreed with that aspect, but about being a pain? Maybe her side of it will be different? I stand by my statements above
 Cheesy Cheesy

And of course my feelings on the shows new lead still stands.

I’m finally home as of today! I’m worn out so I’m going to bed. Hopefully I can post more tomorrow.

Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers!

Alot of blank spaces on the comic wall and was hoping for more new material.
But this is what I got and reading this week:

Amethyst #2
Lois Lane #10 (not my usual fare but a couple pages that explain the current multiverse)
Justice League #44

Anyone know when the new Death Metal mini is rescheduled to be released?

Tried episode one, in the hopes that it wouldn't be like another CW teen drama. It wasn't ... it was worse.
The trappings of this show was ... well... again, I only made it partway through the first episode and I could tell it wasn't for me. I think it wasn't for too many others as well as its getting a measly 3.5 on IMDB.

And Rose won't say it, but I can almost guarantee the reason she left was to try and salvage her career. It would have been dead for years to come had she stayed on for season 2.
I hope they hire a brand new actor that can use this show as the stepping stone it should be, to build a better career, than use up another semi-established decent actors abilities.

Who watched last night's premiere? What were your thoughts?

I tried to, but so many people were trying to watch it kept locking up. I would get about 2 or 3 seconds worth of show for every 10 to 15 seconds of freeze.
Will try again tonight or in a few.

I did enjoy the opening scene
seeing the JSA getting their ass handed to them and all. Loved seeing Wildcat thrown out of the window as "we" drove up  Grin

Seeing all the characters was nice, the look was a tad ... 1990's Flash show, which had me a little sad and from what I can tell in the little amount I saw it is gonna be like most CW television shows, which makes me even more sad and a tad angry, but I do want to give it an honest try.
Don't think I will end up enjoying it, though I am hopeful that I was more annoyed by the stops in action than I was the show. It was 50/50 going though, so ...
We will see

This is a shocker: Ruby Rose, the star of the CW’s freshman drama series Batwoman, is leaving the Warner Bros. TV/Berlanti Prods. drama after one season. The series, which already has been renewed for a second season, will continue with the title role getting recast.

“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” Rose said in a statement “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles.”

Neither Rose, nor the Batwoman producers would speak to the reasons for the actress’ exit so early into the series’ life, though sources indicated that it is not related to the stunt injury she sustained during filming of Season 1, which left her facing paralysis and needing emergency surgery.

Rose, a movie actress and a DJ, was a major get when she was cast as Batwoman in summer 2018, originally for the 2018-19 Arrowverse crossover, and later for a full-fledged pilot, written by Caroline Dries based on the DC characters, which went to series, executive produced by Dries and Berlanti Prods.’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Rose acknowledged the series’ creative team as well as the heads of the CW, Mark Pedowitz, and Warner Bros.’ TV operation, Peter Roth.

“I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity, but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created,” she said. “Thank you Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful.”

In a joint statement, Berlanti Prods. and WBTV reaffirmed their commitment to Batwoman and to casting another LGBTQ actress in the groundbreaking role. Because the CW is delaying the launch of their regular lineup, including Season 2 of Batwoman, until January over the coronavirus-related production shutdown, the producers have time for an extensive recasting process.

“Warner Bros. Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best,” the two companies said. “The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we — along with the show’s talented creative team — look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months.”

Orange Is the New Black alumna Rose returned to the small screen with Batwoman, playing the first gay lead character — male or female — of a live-action superhero series. Her character came out to Gotham City in an episode of the series’ freshman season.
