Justice League #59 - yeah itís Bendis but the backup story is Ram Vís Justice League Dark.

So, okay, I read the latest two issues (that are available on DCI) of his Catwoman and as I dug them and am now really looking forward to the next issue of that title, you then pulled me in with this statement about his JL Dark and I figured why not, so I added it. I only had time to read the first page so far and had to get the monther-in-law, but I figured I would get back to it tonight.

Okay, sweet, yeah?

Well I just found out (a mere 2 minutes ago) that Ram V is leaving both Catwoman and JL Dark in or after December

Not sure if anyone here reads it, but today was the last issue of Guardians of the Galaxy (again).

Catwoman #35 was sold out already at noon. WTF?

Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #5 - not bad.  This issue focuses on Bones and possibly a hidden past.

Infinite Frontier #1 - Love love love it! Love almost all of these characters, heroes and villains alike. Canít wait to see where this goes.

Nightwing #78 - mine downloaded!  Nice first issue for this new direction and new creative team.  By the way, ALWAYS trust a man with a dog.

Justice League #59 - yeah itís Bendis but the backup story is Ram Vís Justice League Dark. First story wasnít bad.  Bendis kicks off his arc pretty decently.  Ram Vís JL Dark is still so much better. Iím sucked into this story start right away.  Iíll be picking this up for as long as heís on JLD.  Bummer heís leaving DC!

Trying this again ...

But you guys didn't notice it wasn't in the November or even October Previews?
Hee-Hee, just bustin' balls as I sure as hell didn't notice either and I, at the very least, glance at all the previews that I can so yeah, I really, really missed it
 Grin

And glad Nightwing was available for you, Jeff. As I showed you and Jimbo in the Polo, I get nothing but black screen.
Contacted Support, twice, so maybe this will be resolved at some point. Luckily I have it already, but still ...

And yes, I agree about the dog (and I love what they did for this dog. Making him ... special  Smiley)

Fantastic Four #33 - That was actually pretty funny.  When will they learn? Never trust Doctor Doom.

Planet Size X-Men #1 - Hmmm interesting.  That was kind of cool by the end.

X-Corp #2 - Kind of interesting this time.  Not enough to woo me over every month but this story was ok.

New Mutants #19 - another side story and the part with Gabby made me wonder what happens next but not enough to start picking this back up.

Rorschach #12 - didnít expect that ending. But like the rest of the series, very good.

Ascender #18 - another series ending. I liked it overall. Nice how it brought both Descenders and Ascender together to wrap everything up.

Jupiterís Legacy: Requiem #3 - itís hard to get used to reading this without Frank Quitelyís art.  But the story moves along and the characterization is good.  Hutchís life has taken a bad turn but heís still the most interesting character in this story.

Nocterra #6 - I havenít seen any solicits for any more issues.  Was this the end?  It wrapped the arc up nicely but seems thereís still a lot of story to tell.

Radiant Black #7 - another good action packed issue.  Looks like weíre getting close to the end of this arc.  I like all the different powers each Radiant has.  Looking forward to some answers next issue!

So not sure what happened but looks like DCI updated or something as I no longer have Legends of the Dark Knight (current) in my downloads. I don't remember getting rid of the issues, but ... maybe? I don't know. Very odd
 Undecided
Regardless, not adding it back on as of yet anyway

Maybe I decided to drop it a few days ago and just forgot? Who the hell knows?

***********************************

Justice League #59 - Did not read the complete issue, no desire to, but I damn sure read the Ram V Justice League Dark stuff and I enjoyed it. How's about that blast from the past wizard, huh?

Legion '89 #7 - This was both somewhat disappointing and very odd. First off, the disappointing part is that I am starting to lose my interest in this arc, I know it will get back to good, but I just want them off this planet! Now, for the weird part,
Lobo, thanks to him being a Czarnian, has this 'power/ability' to produce clones from his blood. And by that, in this issue at least, he gets cut, he bleeds and from the drops of his blood more Lobo's are made?
WTF?? I am assuming this was retconned out? I hope? Crazy shit right there. But yeh, hoping to get off this planet or start a new adventure in the next issue or two.





Fantastic Four #33 (2021) - Jeff has me reading this again and it has a nice (and expected) ... twist? Is it a twist when you knew it had to happen?  Smiley

Thor #240 (1975) - Thor returns to Asgard, finds the place is getting all kinds of screwed up with Odin missing, and heads back to Midgard to find him. He does, but during a battle between Thor and Horus, the remaining Egyptian Gods (Osiris and Isis) have taking over and transformed Odin (who had recently forgetten who he truly is and was going by the name Orrin) from the Norse All-Father that he is, into the Egyptian All-Father; Atum-Re, who now readies to face off against his Thor




Master of Kung-Fu #33 (1975) - Just recently aligning himself with Sir Denis Nayland Smith, Clive Reston and of course Black-Jack Tarr; all whom are part of Britain's own MI-6, Shang defends the team from the villain Mordillo (Boy do I remember loving the issues with him in them a bit down the road Grin) and now the team must solve the riddles before them left by Mordillo. Oh yeah, and this is where Shang first meets the lovely Lieko Wu ... another ally in fight on evil. But this girl is also the ex of one of the members of the team! Duh-Duh-Dummmm

Tales From Harrow County: Fair Folk #2 - Enjoying this mini from Harrow County.  Bernice has to undo some of the protections she and Emmy had put in place and the ramifications are bad, real bad.

The Department of Truth #12 - Ah ha! A traitor in our midst!  I think some things are about to blow up.

Die! #19 - So this whole journey has been so one character can come to grips with his gender fluidity?  I hope itís more than just that.  I can sympathize with the characters struggle and appreciate the quality storytelling of that struggle. Iím just hoping thatís not all that this book was about.  One more issue, I think.

Serial #7 - the plot thickens as our heroine closes in on the killer! But will she catch her in time? She was close this issue and what a powerful issue this was with the Momís freak out.

Seven Secrets #11 - the traitor revealed!  I have a feeling I should know this face but I canít remember it.  Old man brain.
