========================================

Old Man Quill #5 - Ooo - a cross reference to Old Man Hawkeye and a peek at what's left of Nova Corps!  Still fun series to read.

Spider-Man: Life Story #3 - Not as good as the first two issues.  Not sure I'm buying the characterization of Peter in this issue.

Star Wars: Age Of Rebellion - Lando Calrissian #1 - Fun little one shot.  Makes me hopeful at seeing Lando in the new Star Wars movie coming out next month.

Uncanny X-Men #18 - Another good issue.  I like the Emma mystery.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out!

War of the Realms #4 - Nicely done issue.  Really enjoyed the Odin and Freyja stuff.  Thumbs up!

Batman Universe #5 - NOOOooooo. This series, one that was so fun, and I mean fun, with it's first four issues, just totally went Bendis on me. Batman so out of character, making jokes (in regular Bendis fashion) just ... crap. There was one cool spread of Batman and ... a guest
Nightwing
fighting through hallways of henchmen that was really cool and well done artistically, so yes the art is still highly enjoyable, but reading this issue ... I can no longer put this on my "Gonna Buy" list.

Buy the first four and then quit.  Got it!

- man this is good. But man it takes me what seems like forever to remember what is going on here  Grin. It isn't complicated, it is a pretty straightforward
parallel dimensions
type of story, but man, I don't remember what is what and who is who until I get to the second or third issue of my long reads  Cheesy. Going to reread this when it is all over. Really get into the story better than I am now. It is good, its just on my memory I blame the problem.

Comment on your spoiler...
I thought it was time travel not parallel dimensions.  Now I have to re-think.  You could have a better understanding than I do.

Please know that I do love just reading about you guys posting about comics. Love reading them!

Well I (and I'm sure I'm not alone on this) always look forward to your thoughts on the various goings on in the occasional comic you read as well, brotha!!!
 Cool
Just hope ya get your feels back on soon to dive back in more

Sadly that doesn't work. Also sadly I just remembered that there is only one more issue left in this series so I may as well finish it off now!
 Undecided
But yes, the first three or four issues were a delight. As was/is the art in the entirety of the run

Oh, I think you certainly are correct. Maybe it is a little bit of both, maybe, I think.
We know you are right with time travel as characters talk about stuff like "...when I see you again you will be 50 years older" (or along those lines) but we also see, in the art, that there appears to be parallel or alternate worlds outside the center. Of course I am only 50% sure there are these parallels so I could be wrong on that aspect, but I am 100% sure you are right about time being an issue.
