Adding the new digital releases for this week onto the list and look, I don't read a lot of comics in a week, usually, so man I am thankful that I don't see any new DC I have to add this week as Marvel has a good bit hitting I want to read/try. Glad I knocked out a few issues of older Thor last night (even though it was a wacky, confusing, not too grand of a story) as it may be awhile before I get back to the older stuff

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

       

Thor 243-245 - Got into this (not so great, but weird  Grin) story about the "Time Twisters".  
- LOKI SHOW SPOILERS -
These are essentially the guys in the show Loki that they called the Time Keepers.
A little different story, of course, and here the Twisters, in a battle with our Asgardians, call forth an army from the past to battle Thor and his pals and end up wiping out the Earth  Grin The gang that survives the apocalypse heads to the far future (the 50th century) to discover that three of the Time Twisters, responsible for the Earths destruction, are now in stasis, on life support. But Jane talks to "He Who Remains" (sort of the care taker) and tells him what the Twisters had done (in the past, now), he feels so bad that he pulls the Twister's life support. By using the lever labeled "terminate life support systems"
 Cheesy
Somehow, doing that, taking out those responsible, in the future, for destroying the Earths population in the past (?) returned Earth back to normal? What? Wha...??
Haha, yeah, I got really tired on the last couple pages, so much so that the panels began to blur, so I missed how that worked out. The Asgardians did have another, different time traveler with them, so maybe that was it? Hahaha, no idea. I need to go back and reread that part, but again, this wasn't the best story anyway, so I am happy to leave that as a question I find the answer to at some later time.
 Cheesy Cheesy

EDIT - Okay, I couldn't stand it, the not knowing, I went back and read the last few pages to get my mind/memory in order. Essentially the time traveler that was with the Asgardians came from the 50th century and the Time Twisters and the One Who Remains were at the end of time (for this iteration of the universe... I think back then it would be Marvel's 7th? Yeah? As Galactus was the last remaining being from the 6th?). As time "runs in a circle, the Time Twisters were to stay in stasis until the end of this time and were to originally planned to been awoken after the end of "this" time and go back to solve all the problems of this last go around they slept through. However instead they screwed everyone over. They went back in time, again after being awoken after this time ends, to the 50 century and they ended almost all life on Earth. But this time, currently  Grin, the time traveler from the 50th century got the Asgardians and brought them to the end of time where Jane then told the One Who Remains what the Time Twisters actually did... would actually do... and so he, the OWR, killed the Twisters while they slept, thus ending his/their existence when this time came to an end... at the end of time. Basically stopping the Twisters from surviving at the end of this time to go back in time. Ha. Then the time traveler returns to the 50th century and the Asgardians returned to the now.
Whew.
There is, of course, a lot more to it than that in this three issue run, but I needed to get a grasp on that overall ending. Okay, it has been resolved... at least for me.
 Cheesy Cheesy
Shit, no wonder I had no idea what I read.
No more reading time related shit when I am falling asleep, I can tell ya that!!!

DC Universe Infinite
Teen Titans Academy #3
Detective Comics #1036
Robin #2


------------------------------------------------------

Teen Titans Academy #3 - at least the crossover was one and done.  Iím finding I donít care about these young characters other than finding out who Red X is.  Once thatís revealed I may be off this.

Detective Comics #1036 - the mystery continues.  I like the way the Huntress backup story bleeds into the main story. This is some good Batman stuff.

Robin #2 - Hmmm.  A little less interesting than last issue.  But not to the point of giving up yet.  Still some interesting things with the island.

Yeah, that's why I dropped the title. This kids are more like misfits and third-tier hero wannabees. I was hoping for more of the older characters but am getting that from Titans United. I am betting this series folds within the next year.
