Oops sorry!  Yes I liked it.  At first I didn't think I was going to with her dream sequence sugary pages but as you read through it they totally make sense and really do reflect the character.  I see why they launched a full series after this.  It was a nice fun read.

Yeah I liked it.
Haven't tried the new series yet and only had Dave hold up to issue ... 4 or 5 or 6 ( Grin whichever is the end of the Archer crossover) so I can't speak on that one. I may get to it some day year

Wow this week is flying by fast.  Haven't made near the progress I was hoping for!

I feel ya!
We just got a new pup (8 week lab) and that little #@$^%# has been keeping me busy as hell  Cheesy
I have trained 4 labs over my lifetime, 5 counting him, and this dude is making me laugh so much it is hard to maintain the composure I need, making training even harder. Jedicow was talking about the Rocket/Groot scene in the new Guardians trailer and I am certainly feeling the same as Rocket right now.
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Of course I love training them but man, it takes a lot of my comic time.  Grin

Plus, the week may be going fast for you, but you're also trying to get through All-New X-Men and that can make you tired also
 Cheesy Cheesy

What I have made it through so far -

Batman Annual #1 (lots of stories, read some)
Superman Annual #1
Hal and the GLC #8
Hal and the GLC #9
Wonder Woman #10
Wonder Woman #11


Great Lakes Avengers #2
Totes Hulk #12
Uncanny Inhumans #16
Old Man Logan #14
IvX #0

Invincible Iron Man #1

Savage #1
Generation Zero #4 (maybe my last issue)
Seven to Eternity #2
Seven to Eternity #3
Bloodshot U.S.A #2


Infinite Crisis books

Rann/Thanagarr War Special
Adventures of Superman #648
Infinite Crisis #5

Mignola Universe

Hellboy - Heads
Hellboy - Baba Yaga

Not much at all. Thankfully it was an off week for DC.

I thought you were liking this one.  Did it nose dive?

Generation Zero #4 (maybe my last issue)

I thought you were liking this one.  Did it nose dive?

Kinda. More of a nose turn. It started out being close to a New Mutants type of story but has now shifted, in a way. I am sure it was just my idea of what was happening that I got wrong more than the tone shifted of course (it is only at issue #4 after all  Grin)

There is still nothing wrong with it, maybe a tad too crazy for some (any story that has a fetus that can control minds from inside his mothers womb can be called that I guess ... and yes, he's also controlling her  Cheesy)  but I was just looking for something else in tone. This is basically the kids from the Harbinger Wars out on their own, but centering on a small town instead of moving on after a recruit trip like I was expecting/hoping. I wanted New Mutants, going around the world, on their own adventures and this is more like New Mutants, in one city, dealing with crazy stuff there instead.

It's fine. It's good. Just not sure I want it. But gonna read #4, if I can  Grin, before making a final decision.
 Cool

Too early to tell I think.  Mainly because this teenage Raven just isn't the character I grew up with.  I knew this going in but it's written by Wolfman so I'm trying it out.  First issue is mainly a setup issue as she moves in with her Aunt and Uncle in California and starts High School.  I'm going to give it 4 issues to give the story a chance to get moving.

Gotcha. Thanks. Yeah, the "school yard" Raven is why I didn't try it, but hey, if it ends up being great spread the word  Smiley
