I'm a fan of everything in you list there except for :
Obi-Wan and Anakin - as it just didn't hit for me
Patsy Walker - as I couldn't get past the art and direction of the title
The ANAD Universe thing - as I just didn't read it
and
The Infinity Entity - as I am waiting to read this when I have my super-dooper Starlin read through. Grin

Now that I have judge your titles ...
 Cheesy

I hope you dig them all !!!

Yeah I really need to stay off of comiXology for awhile and get caught up to "real time" on MU.

Maybe some unforeseen error in Jimmy's computations?

(And I got that "Computations" in my head from your Cage post, Jeff. Haha Can't get "Does not compute" out of my head)

Oh boy, finally I get to sit on my ivory throne and judge Jimmy's books now. Finally  Cheesy Grin


I got:

Action Comics 962-964

This has turned into my favorite Supes books and, as surprising as it sounds, may have even jumped into my top 5 DC books now. Yes, a Superman book in my top ... top "anything"
 Grin

Superman 5-7

You know how I feel about the Eradicator (is that his name?) so ... but last issue's standalone issue was hopefully a turning point (And give a peek to Trinity next time you are at your shop. It may surprise you)

Flash 5-7

I think I am done with this for a few. I know you were feeling a little less than wowed, so I hope this takes an upturn for you at least.

Deathstroke 5-7

I think these numbers are wrong  Wink But if it is 1-3, then you are going to have a ball.  Cool

Wonder Woman 5-7

Man, I want to talk to you about this when you get done. I ... Like the Cheetah story, but ... yeah ... we'll talk  Smiley

Aquaman 5-7

Issue 6 (I think it was, Co-Starring Superman?) turned this title back around for me. I think this may be the only Abnett book I am enjoying, and it is an up and down enjoyment scale, but currently up
 Grin

Hal Jordan and the GLC 3-5

Yep. Classic Hal stuff! (well, modern classic  Cheesy)

Titans 2-3

Moving on. Haha
Okay, the story is, okay, but that panel art is just bugging me. Want to see how you feel about it.

Blue Beetle Rebirth and #1

Man, I truly, truly hope you enjoy this more than I.

Superwoman 2

Not as strong as #1, but has me panting for #3
 Grin

Just gonna rely on you guys to tell me which Batman trades to get-'Batman' or Detective. Detective is what it kind of sounds like, to be honest.

First and most important, avoid the "(something something) of the Monster Men" trade when it hits. It is a Batbook event crossing over into all the titles, that may, MAY be a trade itself (most likely). Just walk past.

And I think there is enough stuff that I am overlooking in the Batman title, just as a Batman fan, that may cause you some issues with said book. Issue ... crap ... #6 ... I think ...  with Reis art was great stuff, but leading up to that, although it is important to the Bat mythos, maybe, I ... man, it is worth a read but can be a little aggravating if you let it, I think is the best way to describe it.

Detective, yes. Just yes. Especially the trade that has #940 (very important down the line)
 Smiley

Oh and as a semi-spoiler, but more of me asking for help, PLEASE IGNORE UNTIL YOU READ ALL OF SEPTEMBERS TITLES (or at least the ones you are going to read) ... okay, I hope this isn't a big spoiler or even a small one to some ... but
somewhere in this months issues, there is a scene in one panel where someone talks about a watch and when they show the watch, it has a little blood on it just like the Watchmen or Comedian's watch
. Can someone tell me where that happened in? I have forgot and now can't find it. I know I saw it, but need confirmation it wasn't a dream
 Grin Cheesy
 Angry Angry

Thanks!!

AH-HA. Thanks, Rodney !!!! That was really bugging me. I knew I saw it and then noticed I didn't write about and got mad at myself.
