Batman Incorporated #1
Batman Urban Legends #20
Black Adam Special Edition #1
Enola Holmes Mycroft's Dangerous Game GN #1
Superman Son of Kal-El #16... series is ending in a few months. Might as well finish it.

Not picking it up but I see that this week's Future State Gotham #18 is its final issue. I am surprised it lasted this long.

Yeah, gotta edit now that DCUltra is a thing....
Probably won't get to all these this week, as Jimmy pointed out, I have a shit ton of Hellboy/BPRD/Abe Sapien/Lobster Johnson stuff to go through  Cheesy but I am putting them here, to slowly work through 'em.
I will say, as much crap as I give Marvel, I do like the fact that when I am on their app, I can type in an issue and that number will show up in the search. It may be with 45 other issues of that title with the same number  Grin but at least they will show up.
Using a DC search, typing in Batman #125, gets me  Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #125, which okay, close, but then I get... what... Action Comics #30, Animal Man #9, etc... but no Batman #125

Yep - I’m off and running!

Batman: One Dark Knight #1, 2, & 3 - I liked it! Feels so much like the old Batman stories that were so great.  Big thumbs up from me.  It’s a three issue story and each issue is 50 pages.  Lots of good Batman here.

Batman/Catwoman #11 & 12 - Pretty decent ending.  Not the greatest twist but I’m ok with it.  It was still a fun ride.

The Joker #14 & 15 - Great ending to this Jim Gordon series.  I really enjoyed this and would love to see more of Gordon’s adventures.  Here’s to hoping!

Oh, this DC Ultra thing is gonna be the death of me.

I'm holding off on adding anymore issues this week, but if I get too far along and you know that I forgot to read something, hit me up and let me know?

Nightwing - Great. I love a certain aspect of this... if you know what I mean  Grin Let's just say... no, nevermind. I already semi-spoiled something today, I'm saying no more.

Screw it!! Not a real spoiler but, still... don't look  Cheesy Cheesy
I'll just say Wally gives good advise!!

Detective Comics - Cover? Looked spectacular, I was ready to go! The coloring of the issue? Was perfect. No neon colors, no bright ass panels. Interior art? pretty solid. I will add fitting for Gotham. The writing? Oh how Ram V had me. I was enjoying the hell out of this bizarre, but almost gothic feel. Yes, this issue I had waited for was going swimmingly... until the last F'n page. Last panel maybe, now that I think about. I saw that and just instantly felt my heart drop. So yeah, all that waiting... aaaaand, I'm out!
(if it gets good, let me know and I will try to come back)

Lobster Johnson - Okay, so yes, I read the v6 trade before I read the v5 trade of Lobster. But that is how they have it listed in the reading order. I can see why. Even though the Omni ends with Get the Lobster... and that story carries on in the next trade volume, it was (at first) nice to get a break with some cool one-shots. That said, sadly, I am getting tired of this character. There has been little to no character development here so far. It is just like reading the first few trades of Hellboy. Character arrives, monster arrives, fighty-fight-fight, monster loses, rinse and repeat.

I will say that the Get the Lobster's ending does show promise for adding depth to The Lobster, hahaha, so I am holding out hope the next trade will keep me going. If not I am just going to skip the rest and get back to the Hellboy/BPRD stuff and leave Lobster Johnson, Witchfinder and perhaps even Abe Sapien alone until I get done with the main stuff

Sabertooth #5 - So this was the setup for the new Sabretooth & the Exiles comic book.  I didn't really enjoy this so I won't be getting that book.  

Legion of X #3 - I'm just not enjoying this as much as Jimmy is.  It feels like a chore getting through this.  I think that means it's just not for me even though I find myself always wanting to know what happens next.  I think I'm bailing on this one.

Strange Academy #18 - Contrast that with THIS gem!  From the second I start reading just the list of characters on page 1 I start to get giddy with excitement.  And it never disappoints.  This final issue of the first season left me with a blown mind.  I CAN'T WAIT THREE MONTHS FOR THE NEXT ISSUE!!!!  Sigh.  This is clearly my favorite Marvel comic right now.
