This issue itself was okay, but the overall series was lame AF!!!

 Cheesy

I couldn't agree more.   Smiley

I'm not sure about Wally In Space. And what,
as of now he is still a guy that tried to cover up a murder?
I want that aspect wiped away, not just shot into space. But hey, it's a start I guess. Whatever it takes. I will surely try the first couple issues while hoping for the best

Man, it's already Monday afternoon and I have only read ... one little four issue series??

Oh boy, I need to get pumping tonight and tomorrow or Jeff will slap my hand.
 Grin

So far -

Spencer and Locke #1
Spencer and Locke #2
Spencer and Locke #3
Spencer and Locke #4
- I read issue #1 a long time back, but as volume two is now hitting, I figured I needed to finally knock this first volume out. A very cool concept of what if Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbs fame, and whose name is Locke in this universe) had a very different upbringing and ended up becoming a detective. I enjoyed this. Calvin/Locke still has Hobbs, his pet Tiger, who goes by the name Spencer here AND gets first billing, as you can see in the title  Cheesy
With a certain Army Private (a Beetle Bailey analog) showing up in this next volume, I am hoping the next installment hits just as well as this one.
It wasn't perfect, but it was fun, and as of now, the only thing I have opened this week

Dangit.  Calvin & Hobbes is my all time favorite comic strip.  I'm being pulled in....... Smiley


EDIT:  Sweet!  I went to ComiXology to put Spencer and Locke on my Wish List and to see how much it would cost.  Only to find out that it's FREE to read for ComiXology Unlimited members.  No reason to not add this to my Wish List...other than time to read it of course!

Can't beat a price like that.

I just noticed I said "pet tiger" above instead of "toy tiger" like I intended. Ole Buckley must still be on my mind.
Speaking of which ... I will send you a pic ...

Cloak & Dagger 3 - Good to end to this arc (series?).  Hoping for more Cloak & Dagger in the future.

Old Man Hawkeye 11 - Wow - didn't  quite expect that.  Only one more issue for this GREAT series.

Daredevil 612 - Hmmm.  Cheap twist in the end.  Feel a little cheated.  This was the end for this creative team.  Guess we'll have to find out what happens next in another series.

Winter Soldier 1 - Good issue 1.  Cliff hanger was good enough to hook me in.

Lost Dogs   Vol 1 - DAMN YOU JEFF LEMIRE!  Another gut punch of a tale from my new favorite writer.  His independent stuff knocks out anything he could even think of doing for the big two.  I'll be thinking about this one for a long while.

It's a fast read.  Just four issues I think but reads a lot like Essex County.  And the art is the same.

Cool, will keep my eyes peeled !!!

I just totally failed this week, or this past week as I type this  Grin. I guess thinking about taking my contractor to court took a lot of my desire to read away this week. Ugh, man this guy ....

Anyway, I was able to get just a couple more in yesterday and I'm actually surprised I got 8 comics read this week

Detective Comics #1005 - Kinda ended like I thought it would, but also not. A typical comic. Nothing special
Batman and the Outsiders #1 - So after Jeff said he really liked this, I went back to see why I didn't. If for nothing else to better describe why I felt different. Well, maybe it was the mood I was in at the time, or maybe it was the fact I read the entire issue this time and not just the first quarter or so and flipped through the rest, or maybe it was ... oh heck I don't know, but this issue read a lot better for me this go around. I still don't think I like it as much as Jeff (although I am not saying he "Loved it") and that is fine, but I will also keep tabs on this title from time to time. Something I would not have done prior to his comments

Life/Death of Toyo Harada #4 - Valiant's best stories revolve around this character. This is no different.
Red Sonja: Birth of the See-Devil #1 - This one got me. I just read this because I thought it was a one and done issue. I thought this until it got to the back of the book and I saw this story was going to be continued in the next issue. WHAT? Darn it. I am not adding another Sonja book. I already have my Red Sonja book written by my boy Russell, I just wanted a nice little short story.
I could have read something else.
I should have had a V8
