well it's not listed for next week yet. I guess we'll be lucky to get it before the end of the month.

It should be out May 30 unless it gets pushed back a third time.

At this rate I will get to read my digital copy before the print copy is released.

Future's End #1. I didn't care about anything that happened in here... this entire "future" is obviously going to be wiped out and never really happen.

Batman Eternal #5. The initial excitement of the first issue is wearing off fast. I was not dying to see the adventures of Vicki Vale.

Future's End 1 was a big improvement over the FCBD issue. Really looking forward to Lemire writing more of the future Stormwatch team. I'm impressed with how Giffen and Jurgens did handling Grifter and Firestorm respectively.

Batman Eternal 5 shows how Eternal really builds from Snyder's Batman run and Year Zero as a minor character that appeared in Eternal is shown to be involved with Gordon's frameup. Whoever wrote the script did a great job with Tim. Probably his best appearance in the Nu52 I think.

Swamp Thing 31 probably is the best DC comic this week. Soule introduces the fungal avatar of the Grey and explains they have been absent from the wars between the Rot, the Red and the Green. The strength of how the art and writing for this comic mesh together I can't imagine anyone else drawing it. The sequence where Alec travels through the Grey were just amazing.

I flipped through Future's End #0...so this is essentially supposed to be "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and a sort of re-imagining of "Infinite Crisis" as well as a set up for Five Years Later? Wasn't too thrilled with it...hopefully it gets better.

Evil sentient AI created by famous superhero takes over world and co-opts heroes creating post-apocalyptic wasteland... hero goes back in time to prevent it from ever happening...

It really does. The #1 issue is written more like 52 or Brightest Day with a large cast of characters each getting a few pages.

The first issue was indeed an improvement over the preview issue. I'll give this a chance but still not too thrilled with it.

Lemaire's Justice League United was interesting though. Worth sticking with.

So, I'm several months behind in my comics reading and have been trying to catch up. Just been a lot going for the last six months or so.

Finally caught up on "Batman" and, wow, this has just been a great, great book. Snyder is just knocking this thing out of the park and is really making Batman a real force. I wish I could get into "Batman Eternal" but the weekly format just isn't in the budget. I've had to trim down titles as it is. Maybe I'll get the trade down the road.

But Snyder's work on Batman is just really great and I love Harper as the faux-Robin.

Harper's not a 'faux-Robin' as we saw in the preview in 28...she's just a new partner.

I had a hard time getting through issue #0. I'll give it a few more issues but if it doesn't improve I'll probably dump it. It's too bad too because I'm Canadian and really wanted to like this book.

It was an okay introductory issue...nothing special...I'm interested in the concept though and the art was great.


Also Forever Evil #7 is finally out next week according to my pull list, same with the first arc featuring Lex joining the League in Justice League.
