I'll make these short and sweet or not sweet. Whatever. In no particular order.
The mixed art was distracting. I liked Garza's, not the other. I have mixed feelings about the story, too. So Supergirl was being tested, and by Dark Angel and a Monitor, of all beings. So while there were thrills and chills, there was also the feeling that the whole mess was something Pam Ewing dreamed up and I was left thinking the last few issues have been a whole lot of trouble about nothing. Still, Kelly had Kara show some guts and self-awareness that was nice.
Lone Ranger 6
Finally got the end of this story and what a ride it's been. I am so loving this book. So much said with so few words. The art has carried this story in a way few books do.
Green Lantern 20
A nice ending for this story. I'm one of the people who likes Acuna's art, even if everyone of each sex looks pretty much the same except for the hair. Cowgirl has quickly become one of my favorite supporting characters. She'd be so much better for Hal than Carol.
I love the cover. The story was okay, serviceable, nothing special. Dick's being a jerk about a woman from his past. Has she ever been shown before? I don't recall her. I hope Marv doesn't have him revert to the babe magnet he was when Jones was writing the book. Yeah, Dick's sexy and good looking, but he really doesn't have to sleep with every female who thinks so.
All-New Atom 12
Continued fun stuff from this delightful book. And probably the best supporting cast this side of Blue Beetle.
Checkmate 14 / Outsiders 48
The crossover continues has been fairly enjoyable, but as soon as this story is over, I'm dropping The Outsiders. Things are moving along nicely now, but I don't like this group much and I definitely don't want to see Batman back with the Outsiders. Bruce has a group -- the JLA -- and this is Dick's only group and for Batman to take over pushes Dick back into a subordinate role and I don't like that dynamic. Feels like a step backward. And I don't like the competition being set up, either.
Birds of Prey 107
Great end to the story. The Birds and the Secret Six made for a fun team-up once the fighting ended. Catman and Huntress flirting back and forth was fun. Zinda letting the bitch Spy Smasher have it, then literally walking away was great, as was Helena giving Babs an earful about it and how she's let herself be trampled by that very same bitch. Great stuff. Gail's run on BoP has been nothing short of masterful.
I know people are upset with the idea of a dark Mary Marvel, but I like how this is developing, with Mary's frustration and feelings of being lost and disoriented. She's been abandoned by the Marvels and her gods and is seeking something to give her purpose. I want to see this emotional journey she's on. Sweetness and light is nice, but it can make for some dull characters. I don't know where she'll end up and I don't want her to become a female Black Adam, but I'm willing to give the writers the benefit of the doubt and let myself enjoy the story. The Jimmy Olson storyline has promise, too.
Wonder Woman 9 / Amazons Attack 2
Finally, Jodi Picoult's WW didn't annoy the crap out of me. The two books dovetailed better than previous issues. It was nice to see Donna and I hope she finally ends up having a purpose and some impact. She's been mostly wasted since being brought back from the dead, leading me to wonder why they bothered. And she's one of my favs!
Blue Beetle 15
More fun. Jaime is running with the big guys now, with Superman guest-starring.
Supes is really getting around these days, or rather, in this one, Kendra visits his city. Not much really happened, but things were set up for the end of Kendra's quest for Hath-Set.
More clues and not as obtuse, confusing, or crowded as the previous issue. A lot to enjoy here, but I'm still not liking the art.
