My Comics List, Week of May 14

Hey gang,
Here's what I picked up this week-

  • BATMAN #676 RIP
  • BOOSTER GOLD #9 (man, Earth is messed up 'cause of Ted Kord, huh?)
  • CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI 13 #1 SI (the Skrulls want to bomb Stonehenge?)
  • FX #3 (OF 6) (love Byrne's art!)
  • GEN 13 #20 (the end of the New York saga, finally)
  • GREEN LANTERN CORPS #24 (the source of the Black Mercy flower--revealed!)
  • NEWUNIVERSAL SHOCKFRONT #1 (OF 6) (further recreating Jim Shooter's pre-Valiant universe-building effort)
  • NUMBER OF THE BEAST #3 (OF 6) (things is messed up where the High is hangin'... dawg)
  • SECRET INVASION FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (OF 3) SI (okay, the ending you can see coming but getting there is kinda fun)
  • TITANS #2
  • WALKING DEAD #49 (the perfect antidote to happiness and optimism)
  • X-MEN LEGACY #211 DWS (Xavier is still putting it together... with help from a madman, Phoenix and his wackjob sister)

Overall, thought it had some bright spots. I might do a rundown of my faves (and not-so-faves) before I run off to London.

The earth is screwed up because of Ted Kord...blah. They could have written it otherwise. I hate that they're doing this to us!

I think you're right about that, Jeff. C'mon, *everything* went to hell because Ted didn't get shot in the head by Max Lord?
Talk about "It's a Wonderful Life" gone wrong...
Thanks for writing!
