Detective Comics #1027 - I got this mainly because there was supposed to be a connection with the Generations book.  There is; only one of the many stories.  But thatís ok as I enjoyed this entire book.  Lots of good Detective stories in this one including the short prequel to Generations Shattered.

Generations Shattered #1 - Now this feels like a real crisis.  Very copy cat of Crisis on Infinite Earths except it moves across time instead of the multiverse.  Batman from 1939 was picked up by Kamandi in the Detective comic above and this starts out with what Kamandi is assembling as a team.  I like it so far.

Future State: The Next Batman #3 - Only liked the Arkham Knights story.  No interest in either the Batman nor Outsiders tales in this one.

Future State: Harley Quinn #2 - Not bad.  Nice ending and still fun to read the insanity that Harley can bring.  Not even Scarecrow or Black Mask can control her.  :-)

Future State: Superman of Metropolis #2 - Superman story, thumbs up.  Didnít care for the Mister Miracle or Guardian stories.

Future State: Wonder Woman #2 - I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.  And while I donít want her replacing Diana, I like this Yara and will enjoy learning more about her history as an Amazon.

Future State: The Flash #2 - oh yeah.  That was not good at all. And looks like it will continue into the Teen Titans book.  That doesnít bode well for that book.

Future State: Swamp Thing #2 - That was a really good story.  Somewhat sad but hopeful as well.  Thumbs up for the Swamp Thing.

Not that I was interested but Batman Urban Legends #6 was sold out and the hot item of the week.

Those were really good issues and I enjoyed Generations Forged as well. Let me know what you think when you read the ending.

Die #14-18 - Iím kind of glad I forgot about this and let so many issues queue up.  Reading these 5 issues together helped the story make a lot more sense.  Plus we are clamoring fast to the end.  These issues include the end of the Great War and the start of the final journey out of the world of Die.  Secrets are finally coming out and the final battle through the final dungeon is upon us.  I enjoyed reading these issues.  Perhaps I should have read all of this in collected form.

Fear Case #1-4 - Good supernatural crime case by Matt Kindt.  Itís a one story adventure and I enjoyed it.  A lot of double meaning as the case involves aÖ.brief case.  Thumbs up.

Went back and grabbed Teen Titans Spotlight (1986) #1. A buddy gave me a copy of Batman Urban Legends #6 (he grabbed 5 or 6 when the LCS opened to sell for a quick profit).

Fire Power #13 - A bit of an interlude after last issues big wrap up.  But the seeds of the new arc are being planted and more action is coming our way.  Really enjoying this title.

Hey Kids! Comics! #3-5 - Man what a sad ending to this great series.  I wonder if comic creators really hated each other this much.  Stan LeeÖ. I mean Bob Rose doesnít come out looking very nice.

Rorschach #11 - My brain hurts. But I like where this went.  Hopefully next issue it all comes together for me.

Paper Girls TPB Vol 4 (Collects issues #16-20) - That read fast.  Adventure at Y2K in this collection.  Not much in revelations but a fun little romp in this time period.  Still fun book.

Stray Bullets Vol 4: Dark Days (Collects issues #23-30) - Wow.  This was the most powerful book of the series.  I thought I understood Amy Racecar after the last book but all is really revealed here and I couldnít have been more wrong.  Incredibly gripping story and one that will leave me sad for a very long time.

Going to put the new Marvel MU Manic Monday release books I want to read up here, but I know full well I am not getting to them (most chances) before Wednesday. I am going to concentrate on getting through some more Hulk issues (47-49), getting totally caught up, so I can read #50 as soon as it hits! I don't want to be spoiled on it, so I am reading it on realese.

Marvel Unlimited
FANTASTIC FOUR #32
SPIDER-WOMAN #12
X-CORP #1 SERIES DEBUT! (end copy and paste  Cheesy)
Star Wars #13 (*Bounty Hunter Wars Tie-In)
Black Cat #6

I am pretty sure I "read" that X-Corp issue, or at least partially read it, but damn if I can recall  Undecided

But ... here is what I have read this week (with maybe one or two issues carrying over from last week that I forgot to put on that thread  Wink)

Cable #10 - Dang, was going to write about my thoughts on this issue but ... Yeah ... I can't remember what happened. It has been over a week so ... 
Grin

Strange Academy #10 - A good field trip issue with a nice parent reveal for one two students.
 Grin

Black Widow #6 - I enjoyed the last arc, but I now feel it should have been another BW mini. I think I'm done.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter War Alpha #1 - I have been waiting for this since I first heard of it about 7 months ago. I tired the SW: BH title when it first hit and it was fine, but not engaging enough in the long run, but THIS? I hope the event holds up as well as it started. Yeah, this was good.

Immortal Hulk #43
Immortal Hulk #44
Immortal Hulk #45
Immortal Hulk #46
- Damn it!!! I had thought about buying the last four issues so I could be up-to-date when that last issue #50 hits, but now there is no doubt. I will be caught up to read the last issue when it hits. Nobody at the LCS is going to have a chance to spoil this for me
 Tongue

Defenders #28
Defenders #29
- Man how I wished #28 was the last issue of the original Guardians of the Galaxy arc. If for nothing else to end on an issue that was NOT inked by Vince "how do I have a job" Colletta. But no, he was back for #29. And yeah, it looked like shit.
 Angry
(fun arc overall however. More of a GotG story though)

Itís interesting that the GotG have been around since the 1907ís.  I really had no idea they were that old.

 Grin
I love typos
 Wink
