If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?- Kevin Smith

Hmmm.  Im not sure if the Marvel calendar was wrong again or if not everything dropped because of the new holiday.  Ill add the one that dropped but wasnt on my list but hold off on deleting any until I know for sure that they wont drop tomorrow.

Black Hammer: Reborn #12 - Well all righty then.  One series ends and sets us up for what could be the final series for Lemires Black Hammer tale.  Looking forward to seeing how this all wraps up.

Fable by Johnathon Hickman - off to good start.  Nothing like a little mystery to build intrigue and interest.  This first book is only 8 pages but the art is nice.  Im in.

Ruins by Johnathon Hickman -  continues the story from Fable.  I see now these are all different chapters of the same story.  An exploration of this universe while following a mystery.  This one was 13 pages.  Very science fiction centric.

Robin & Batman #2 - Awesome book.  And I agree with Alfred.  Batman's a b@st@rd.   Grin

Batman: The Imposter #3 - Final issue.  And what a great one it was.  Sorrentino's art is just amazing to look at.  The Imposter's identity is revealed and the story ends well.

Eternals: The Heretic #1 - Good book.  A supplement to the main book with the history of the older Eternals, the grand parents.  Gillen keeps the quality high with this group.

The Joker #10 - Weird flashback story that didnt seem to have anything to do with the current arc in this book.  Im sure it will fit in somehow but I found it kind of disappointing.

Uncanny X-Men (1987) #220  - Good one shot as Storm returns to Dallas to confront Forge for taking her powers.  I'm having a lot of fun re-reading these classic Uncanny X-Men stories!

Adventures of Superman Annual #2 (1990) - L.E.G.I.O.N / Superman crossover part 1 - Remember the days when an Annual had three stories - but they were all chapters of the same story?!  Well that's what we got here!  Vril Dox and his LEGION come to Earth looking for his father, Vril Dox Sr - or as we know him - Brainiac!  Misunderstandings of course start it all off when Lobo is involved resulting in a lot of battles with Superman!

L.E.G.I.O.N. Annual #1 (1990) - L.E.G.I.O.N / Superman crossover part 2 - The big conclusion. Multiple chapters as well and the big face off between Vril Dox and Brainiac.  This is really a lot of fun to read.  Even with the cheesey '90's dialogue!

Lets get me all caught up!~!


Daredevil Woman without Fear 3 DAMMIT I HATE KRAVEN!!! And I always will.  At least she kicks his @ss though!!!

Strange 1 Whoops, still haven't finished this

Cap/Iron Man 4 I've been enjoying it so far! AND wow, what writing to really throw the wrench into the works, take it down a new road, WOW great work in the writing department!

DC INFINITE

Nightwing Annual 2021 Always glad to see all the 'brothers' bounce off each other in one on one tales. ALWAYS love these stories. This one was pretty good, not the most amazing, but really good still.

Robin 2021 Annual A decent piece showing the other Island players more, and it gives the briefest hints at the connections this Deathstroke wannabe may have

Detective Comics Annual 2021 This was ...okay.Eh, not really, it just set up the next pitch for what Batman comics will be. But a forgettable issue, I think.

Batman Annual 2021...what the hell...

The Joker Annual 2021...what the F-!..

Wonder Woman Annual 2021...ok, maybe, LOL

Doing the slide over technique with my list, my ever growing list, to see what I was able to knock out.

I need to post more, but I feel bad when I come on here and can only report I read 1 comic  Angry

Anyway, here is what I've hit since last time... and once again, I end up having subtracted fewer issues (seven) than I add to the list (fourteen... or twenty-six if you break down the trades)  Sad. I just WANT to read these issues so badly. This is how the list builds to the point of explosion.
 Cheesy

Human Target - Ha! Forgot I had already read this one at the LCS, but I read the entire thing again, as it pulls you in so easily.

Dark Knights of Steel - Well now, didn't expect to see THAT character being the one to do THAT  Cheesy This is so good

Joker - Like Jeff said a "look back" issue that I swore I had read before. I mean it just seemed way too familiar. Didn't Snyder do this in one of his earlier issues? Maybe not, I knw I have seen this, or something very much like this before, but damn if I can remember when/where. Still liked it, but... yeah

King of Spies - Loved the first three issues, but did not enjoy the ending. Not because of who got what, but it just felt too damn clean with its ending. No emotional resonance at all, just... done  Tongue

Daredevil Woman without Fear 3

Cap/Iron Man 4

Strange 1 I loved this !! I love seeing non Earth humans not being written as part of the Judeo-Christian white american culture! Clea's attitude is great!! And that ending really hit strong, and I hope it heralds a big change for character(s)!

Amazing Spider-man 92.1 Why Monica Rambeau here? Just to have loose connections to Nextwave...and I'm really okay with that!  Cheesy

Punisher 1 This could be dangerous territory...like, will we look back at this and think "ugh, this was like the God's Angel Punisher" but maybe not! If not, well, I was jazzed reading this. Cheesy

Detective Comics Annual 2021 This was ...okay.Eh, not really, it just set up the next pitch for what Batman comics will be. But a forgettable issue, I think.

Batman 118 Cool new status quo for Batman with Williamson. I dug it!

Batman Annual 2021 Couldn't stand the art, and most of the issue isn't needed, but seeing Ghost-Maker's history and revenge was just SUCH a payoff!

The Joker Annual 2021 Eh. Meh. Same with Joker 10. Eh and Meh. Art was a real, real downer.

Wonder Woman 782 another pretty decent ish, with seeing Psycho become a new factor of stress in this world. Seeing Diana being buddy buddy with Deadman is an odd and fun pairing!

Batman Urban Legends 10 I love Time Drake stories. A very good Tweedle Dee and Dum story. Crap, did I finish this issue? LOL

Robin and Batman 2 Awesome! So sad it's only 2 issues!

Superman Son of Kal-El Annual Great Annual! Great moves by Jon versus Luthor! Loved it!

Batman '89 4 I like the movie tie-in book that this is, and I enjoy reading it still!!

Green Lantern 9 This is junk. Tom Raney used to be a good artist; what is this dreck? What is this lantern mythos? I need to go read Johns work to wash this out of my mouth

Suicide Squad 10 You guys kinda got on me to read the Squad, and seeing Superboy come to the title, I came to the title. And I still enjoy reading the title! With some really good art! I am onboard with all these machinations occurring!

Swamp Thing 10 I'll read this through to the last issue.

Dark Knights of Steel 2 More lore wrinkles and changes, and what big set ups occurring! Cool reading!

Batman The Imposter 3 What a series. How Brutal. And sad. And defeating. But a good Batman read. However...

HOOPLA

I read
Batman Earth 1 Book 2 Did they base Pattinson's movie off this book? Feels like they did! I really enjoyed reading it. But reading this after The Imposter just seems to show more and more, (what I've always felt), that Batman may not really ever succeed....and how much is a bigger failure than Bruce Wayne? He's got WAY more money than his parents, and look at what they did with their fortunes? I think Bruce doesn't try that route becuase A) he's too angry and broken as a human and B) he's reallly afraid of failing in the memory of his parents. That he knows he can't care like they did, and he knows he can't succeed like them, and he doesn't want to fail them again.

Once and Future vol 2 Wow, that threw me for a loop with how that really turned around at the end! LOL what a story! Love this stuff!

Starting Something is Killing the Children right now....

Dark Crisis: Young Justice #1... I remember being hooked on this title when it debuted in '98. Fun characters, decent art, and another version of the Teen Titans. This first issue reads just like that old series, but I just can't get hooked. I don't think I will be getting the rest of this series.

Multiversity: Teen Justice #1... The premise is a gender-swapped Earth. Pretty good characters and I would love to see this as a regular series, not just a mini.
