Nightwing #79 & 80 - Enjoyable so far.  Tom Taylor writes a decent Nightwing and Batgirl (Oracle).  Not sure what I think of the villain though.  Couldn’t he have come up with a better name?

Flash #769 - I see what they’re trying to do here with Bart.  While I think I like it overall, I wasn’t wild about this issue.  A little too silly for my taste.  I get why and it makes sense with the arc, I just didn’t particularly enjoy it.

Flash #770 - this issue was much better since our focus is on Jay Garrick n WW2.  Always enjoy a good Flash story in the war.

New Avengers #6 (2013 - Hickman's)
Alien #4
Alien #5


MU Newer Stuff
Defenders #1
Fantastic Four: Life Story #3

DCI Older Stuff
Legion of Super Heroes #2
L.E.G.I.O.N '90 #14

DCI Newer Stuff

Nightwing #80


Others
Ice Cream Man #25

Black Hammer Reborn #4
Black Hammer Reborn #5


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

Avengers #11 - Okay, yeah, this is starting to get there. Still not as concise as Hickman's "New Avengers" but close.

Alien #4-5 - One issue left in this story and as (admittedly) redundant as these stories can feel, I really like this one.

Defenders #1 - Art just blows me away. Still didn't like the "fighting to talking" transition and not totally sold on this team, but hey, its the Defenders. The very premise of this non-team is to be a mish-mash so I'm hanging on

Fantastic Four: Life Story #3 - Can't say the same for this. Okay, okay, I will probably finish it, I am a whore for this team, but I am not overly happy with it.

Moon Knight #2 - Still wish the art was better (it sadly looks like I am reading a Zenoscope comic much of the time here  Undecided) but I do love me some Moony, so yeah, enjoying this

Flash #769-770 - When I was finished with the chore of reading issue 769, I had plans to dump this title, head down to the big LCS after Thanksgiving and slap the ever lovin' shit out of some of the guys there for telling me this series was "worth reading". I went ahead and started the next issue with plans on just skimming it (I had already downloaded it, why not?), saw it was a WWII story and decided to try it. Okay Flash, after reading this and then seeing that last panel, you have me for another issue at least

Nightwing #80 - Just love this book. Both the written and artistic interactions between Barbara and Dick is perfection, as were the scenes with Dick and Tim. I do agree with Jeff about the "baddies" name  Roll Eyes no, not the best.
But I mentioned MK above, how about his gallery? I spent years having to deal with that kind of crap with older Moon Knight comics
I mean Bushman? The Profile? Black Spectre? (okay, no... I like that one  Grin). But how about this one ... the Stained Glass Scarlet?
 Shocked
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
I will say that the guy in Nightwing tells ya what he is all about, at least?
 Grin
Yeah, not the best  Smiley

Finally got caught up on my Bat books. Still loving Nightwing (and Babs). The comics this week featured a preview of the new Batgirls series and it looks horrible. Bad writing and even worse art.
