Batman Secret Files #1 This was a series of short stories. Some of them were good, some not so good. I actually don’t even know how this got on my list, but I believe Comixology just added it and it is a part of the Batman series that I do read. I probably would have skipped this if I new before hand it was on my list.
Daredevil #610 Okay so this is the second issue in this Death of Daredevil storyline. Let’s hope that it really isn’t. So Elektra joins the crew to capture the Kingpins right hand man, but they end up with a fight with the new villain Vigil. It seems that he has some ability to mess up Daredevils radar which essentially renders Daredevil blind. So it’s a good thing they had Elektra in the story to keep up the fight, but of course we are drawn back to that same plot point where Elektra is going to kill Vigil and Daredevil stops her, which of course means he kills the Kingpins right hand man and gets away. So the team is back to trying to find out how the Kingpin got elected as the mayor of NYC.
Heroes in Crisis #2 Was a fantastic issue. The heroes begin investigating the murders at Sanctuary while Booster recovers and decides to solve the mystery to find out if he did kill them while he was crazy. Artwork was top notch, story and pacing was excellent.
Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth Special #1 Alright so… the heroes are losing. The world is doomed and these fishy space gods and their legions are taking over the earth and converting people into Lovecraftian Deep Ones. Still not a fan of this storyline, and it really is confusing when it is happening yet not happening in the other books I’m reading in the DC Universe. Just like Batman being all broken, yet in other books not at all. Continuity is all over the place.
Old Man Hawkeye #10 (of 12) was great. This series has held up all the way through. Bullseye is still chasing after Clint, and Clint is getting closer to finding Baron Zemo’s location.
The Realm #10 was decent. Some really nice visuals and style going on in this. Finally the group is back together and they have escaped the dungeon. Now the journey continues and we’ll see where it leads us.
The Wild Storm #18 is trekking along. Not really much to say about this issue as nothing is really standing out. Just a lot of moving pieces at this point. I mean, sure the story is good, but its all just making sure that all the different threads are heading in the right direction to arrive at our climax that should be happening soon.
