Ok, and I'm back on time this week.

TRINITY #5: The fight with Konvikt hits its conclusion and at least I can say it was mildly entertaining. But it can't be a good sign that we've hit only the fifth week and I'm already starting to tire of this series. Thumbs in the middle.

BATMAN #678: After last month's miss, this issue proves to be more interesting and I'm starting to like the Club of Villains more and more. Even if I still can't quite wrap my head around what the hell's happening, I can't deny that I want to see what happens next, especially after the last page. Thumbs in the middle, leaning up.

JOKER'S ASYLUM #1: THE JOKER: The story was a nice throwback to some campier Bat-stories, but that artwork was an eyesore. I can understand them trying to capture the Heath Ledger-look of the Joker, but the art overall was just splotchy. Too bad, because this was a decent story otherwise. Let's hope Jason Aaron's take on the Penguin next week fares better. Thumbs down.

AVENGERS: INVADERS #3: After reading that important scene with the New Avengers and Spider-Woman, I realized that Alex Ross must want to throttle Brian Bendis for outing her as a Skrull and potentially screwing up his story. The Namor/Namor fight was a disappointment, but I'm intrigued to see where the result goes. And Tony Stark doesn't make nearly as long an appearance as he should (and when did you ever think you'd hear THAT in modern Marvel?). A disappointment, but the potential for better things is there. Thumbs in the middle, leaning down.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #16: With the world of comics proving a successful transition, now's as good a time as any to bring in future slayer Fray. The story's a good one and it's actually worth reading for the twist regarding what's happening with Dawn. Thumbs up!

ANGEL: AFTER THE FALL #10: Some major exposition happens here with Angel's secret getting exposed and the inevitable meeting between Angel and newly-vamped Gunn. The brief scene with Spike and Wesley was also some great stuff. Two issues left in this series and they look to be huge. Thumbs up!

A bunch of stuff I missed (including the new Astonishing X-Men), so feel free and pile on.

I have the same feeling about Trinity. It will most probably be well-crafted and all that, but meh. I like Kurt and Fabian, so I want to give it a chance. Maybe once the BIg Three and the Bad Three start intersecting.

Bought a ton of stuff as usual, but only had a chance to read one and that was "The Walking Dead" #50. I honestly had no idea if Rick Grimes would be among the living or one of the Walking Dead at the end of this issue and I was worried/excited about both possibilities, which is why I love this book soooo much.

Looking forward to getting caught up on Batman (I had to avoid discussion of R.I.P. as I picked up my books today as I'm a few months behind on Batman) and G.I. Joe as the last issue of the Devil's Due series was released today as well. Sad to see DDP losing (I guess) the license to publish this book as they really did a great job brining it out of mothballs (at first) and making it a viable comic property again. Not sure if I'll follow it to IDW yet, but I'll probably get suckered into the first issue at least.

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

Oh Drew, we both know you never stop with just one issue. ; )

FYI...Gannett (the Borg what own USA Today) have owned the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the town's oldest paper, for years now. They bought out the "little paper that could" competition, the Green Bay News-Chronicle a year or two ago.
