Future State: Dark Detective #3 - Two stories - Bruce Wayne & Grifter.  Both were good.

Future State: Green Lantern #2 - Three stories.  Not bad.  My favorite is the middle one with Mogo and the teenager.  The Hal Jordan one seems to be setting things up for the next series.

Future State: Justice League #2 - This was good.  Two stories. Justice League and Justice League Dark.  Both were fun conclusions to their stories.
 
Future State: Kara Zor-El, Superwoman #2 - Definitely not my cup of tea.  This one bored me.  It was supposed to be some awe inspiring tale of Karaís legacy but I found it lacking.

I read the entire Endless Winter arc. I liked the history story that ran through everything more than the main current storyline. I enjoyed the history, but not the current stuff.

Also, Pa Kent is alive again? Dammit, when do I find out when that happened? I mean yeah, it was from Death Metal, but now I'm like what was changed, what wasn't, what is...is! I'm confused.

Endless Winter was a great story! I loved that it was "one and done" in a single month. Gotta agree that the back story was better than the current tale.

Future State: Robin Eternal #2 - I liked the art.  But thatís about it.  Story wasnít very interesting.

Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #2 - Maybe Iím in a mood but I didnít really like this one either.  It wasnít terrible but just didnít hold my interest.  Maybe Iím just grumpy in my old age.

Future State: Teen Titans #2 - This one I liked so I must not be grumpy!  Now I want read Titans Academy.  This really perked my interest.

I also "read" Spider-woman 6-11.

Not interested. Mostly just a bunch of yelling, and frankly, waaaay overwritten. I see she's back to her classic costume in #12, and hopefully its a new direction that doesn't really reference the first year, otherwise I'm just not going to bother reading it anymore.

Immortal Hulk 46 - hee hee still great! But Perry gives ill tidings of the future issues....

Green Lantern Season 2 1-2 : Okay, i love me Grant Morrison...but man....this felt like hard reading. Okay, the bird man issue did. I liked the Young Guardians lead off.

Batman Superman 11-15 - finished off this run of the title. I feel like I almost only read Josh Williamson DC titles! A nice Grundy issue to finish the series. Reading this, and JL, i'm only obliquely being referenced to Supes revealing his ID as Clark (which is still the worst idea ever). I hope it gets reversed. It's so terrible.

Infinite Frontier 2 & 3 -little glimpses into the little people of the world since Death Metal. Roy knows he was dead, undead, then alive. So does Jade. That ought to mess people up!!

Yeah, I was a little miffed, but then again, I was more mad I paid for the issues and got what I got. I think on MU they will be fine. I just should have waited is all.

That monster one-shot is out this week. I did like that one. But as I said last time, had I known it was coming out so soon I would have waited and saved the money!!

My impatience got the best of me

I felt this way after reading issue 12.  Iím taking a break from Spider Woman as well.

The Green Lantern Season Two #11 - Looks like weíre heading for a final battle and Halís greatest enemies are involved.  This issue sets thing up for next issues series finale.

Sweet Tooth: The Return #1-4 - Excellent sequel!  Itís a whole new story set 300 years after the original.  A whole new set of enemies and friends with ties to the world of the original.  Thumbs way up on this new take.

And I remember you saying that. A bit of trepidation going towards these issues...and your words did prove true. I'll read 12...and if I don't enjoy it, I'll just break away.

Ascender #17 - story is coming to an end finally.  I think this ran too long and interest in the characters waned.  I think next issue is the finale.  Iím hoping it has a big finish.

Jupiterís Legacy: Requiem #2 - Good issue.  Itís fun seeing what the grand children and great grandchildren are heading towards.  Answers to questions from the beginning of all this could be answered soon!

Radiant Black #6 - Back story for the red radiant.  My only problem is the artists drawing the girl who is supposed to be getting married.  She looks like she is 12!  I thought she was one of the children at the table and sheís the main adult character!?  Otherwise it was a good issue but that really took me out of it.

Time Before Time #3 - More time travel fun!  Nice twist with the Syndicate in this one which puts our heroes in more possible trouble.  Wish this came out faster because itís a lot of fun.

Snow Angels Season Two #3 - This book is so good.  Our heroines escape one trap only to be right back where they were before.  Iím ready for some answers dangit!

So yeah, spent money I just should not have, but what's done is done and at least I will be set to read the last issue of Immortal Hulk as soon as it hits ... in OCTOBER!!!!!!
 Angry Angry Angry

Immortal Hulk #47
Immortal Hulk #48
Immortal Hulk #49
- Okay, yeah, not the best, but if I would have waited I think I would liked it more? Maybe?

IMMORTAL HULK: TIME OF MONSTERS #1 - Bought this as well at the same time. I learned a lesson here, be sure to check the release calendar before purchasing anything. I got this last week and it is set to hit MU tomorrow  Angry
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
That said, the first story was ... interesting.

Seven To Eternity #1 (Reread)
Seven To Eternity #2 (Reread)
Seven To Eternity #3
Seven To Eternity #4
Seven To Eternity #5
Seven To Eternity #6
Seven To Eternity #7
Seven To Eternity #8
The last issue of this series finally hit a couple weeks ago and as I have had most of these issues for a long time just waiting for the end, it was time to hit 'em up. Loving this. only 9 more issues to go, which sucks, right now, but I like this. Certainly more "fantasy" leaning than Sci-Fi, but I have Remender's other stuff like Black Science, Low and Tokyo Ghost lined up for that genre
 Smiley

Black Cat #6 - Part two of the current arc and not sure how Felicia is going to get out of this one  Grin. Really enjoyed this issue. Sure, its forgettable, much like last issue was for me  Cheesy, but fun while I read it anyway.

Still have some more MU reads that I haven't hit yet, thanks to Remender's STE, but I will get to them at some point. Also adding  what is hitting tomorrow from MU as well as I may skip around a bit -

X-Corp #1 ... maybe, maybe not? I now remember reading some of this at the LCS when it first hit.   Undecided
GotG #14 ... maybe? I want to like this Ewing book but its just not hitting for me. I hate Wiccan and Hulkling
Star Wars #13  (War of the Bounty Hunters)
Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #12 (War of the Bounty Hunters)
Fantastic Four: Life Story #1
Shang-Chi #1
Way of X #2 ... already canceled? WHAT?
The Ultimates ... maybe both volumes of Ewings runs? I loved what he did with Glactus in the first one, and I am in a Celestial mood so maybe will hit that volume as well.

Ha, okay, no way I get through all these AND more of Remender's STE

Hmmm.  Now thatís not a bad idea.  I wonder if I should reread the bulk of this while I wait for the last issue to drop in priceÖ..

Hey Kids! Comics! Vol 2 #1-3 - This volume gives us peek into the worlds of Mad magazine and the horror, western, Archie crazes of comics which eventually spawned the comic book authority.  Amazing how much these creators all hate each other.

Moonshine #23-26 - Itís all coming to a head as multiple gang wars erupt.  And the werewolves seem headed for a last fight between themselves as well!  Looks like the end is nigh.
