Quote from: rusty on January 17, 2019, 12:11:20 amI'm caught up on the mainstream DCs now, except for a few that arrived in my latest shipment.Heroes in Crisis 1-4 - I'm a bit conflicted on this series. It hasn't been bad, but I don't really like some of the characterizations. The deaths also seem kind of pointless. We'll see where it goes and what the underlying secrets are behind the deaths. It reminds me a bit of Sue Dibny's death way back when.
Quote from: rusty on January 17, 2019, 12:11:20 amMystik U 1-3 - A younger Zatanna goes to magic school and meets John Constantine, Sargon and others. I liked this miniseries quite a bit.
Quote from: rusty on January 17, 2019, 12:11:20 amWonder Woman 25-61, Annual 2 - This series has been pretty solid. I think the Robinson run was my favorite, but the others are good, too. I think we'll see Diana's brother return at some point. There is still a lot that can be explored there.

Quote from: rusty on January 17, 2019, 08:04:11 pmUnited States of Murder Inc. 1-4 - This is another holdover from Icon and is about the first female assassin in a particular mob family. I like the book more than Scarlet, though not as much as the other two series. It has potential.The move to DC seems to have done good things for Bendis and deadlines on his indie books so far.
Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on January 18, 2019, 02:21:44 amI liked the first US of Murder Inc series, way back when, but missed the new one when it came out (probably will get the trade collection at some point, though). But where is POWERS? That's the only one I really wanted to see. Or is it over for good, after a few different hiatuses and publishers?
Quote from: rusty on January 26, 2019, 11:31:50 pmFuture Quest Presents 1-12 - These stories were a lot of fun. I wouldn't mind seeing an ongoing series with some of these characters or another anthology series. The Jeff Parker written stories were probably my favorites here. The Space Ghost three parter was nice in both art and story.
Quote from: rusty on January 26, 2019, 11:31:50 pmLooney Tunes 238-246 - This series is still fun, even if some of the stories are reprints. They are from so long ago that they seem new. I did see one funny accident, though, where they included the indicia from the issue that was being reprinted as part of the story page. This series is now tied in terms of # of issues with the original Dell title. That tie will be broken soon.
Quote from: rusty on January 26, 2019, 11:31:50 pmScooby-Doo Team Up 20-45 - This series is a lot of fun with the Scooby Gang meeting a different DC or Hanna-Barbera character or group in each issue. Sholly Fisch does a nice job writing this and even maintains some continuity. The art is pretty good, too.
