Mera Queen of Atlantis #1
Stanley Artgerm Lau Variant Cover B
Release Date: 2/28/18
Cover Price: $4.49
Purchased from: Midtown Comics
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Thoughts:  Not a bad issue. I don’t really know what I expected but it seemed to fall short. I don’t hate it, and I will for sure read another couple of issues (I’ve already bought them). I hope it turns into a story I enjoy. It has the potential to do so.
Justice League of America #26
Francesco Mattina Variant Cover B
Release Date: 3/14/18

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Thoughts:  I was really impressed with this issue. The art and story was fantastic and I was excited to see the finale of this story arc. Very well done.
Justice League of America #27
Francesco Mattina Variant Cover B
Release Date: 3/28/18
Cover Price: $2.99
Purchased from: Midtown Comics
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Thoughts:  I was excited to see this new story line and it wasn’t horrible. I was a bit disappointed  with the pacing as it seemed a bit rushed but overall I think I’m going to enjoy it.
Justice League of America #28
Francesco Mattina Variant Cover B
Release Date: 4/11/18
Cover Price: $2.99
Purchased from: Midtown Comics
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Thoughts:  Carrying on the story from the previous issue this story stayed right on track. I’m still not LOVING it but it’s a decent story right now.
Dark Nights Metal #6
Andy Kubert Variant Cover C
Release Date: 3/28/18
Cover Price: $4.99
Purchased from: Midtown Comics
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Thoughts:  I didn’t hate the issue but it seemed to rush to the end. All the build up and world changing battles and it ended so sparsely.  The epilogue really hints that big things are coming but I’m not as excited as I should be and doubt I will pick it up in May.

That’s it for today! I have been reading comics mostly for the past couple of days. Ready Player One novel is still sitting in my read pile, I’m about 3/4 of the way through. I am not watching the movie until I finish the book. In any case, stay tuned, a garden update is next! We did some cool stuff today (4/21) in the garden and will show pics in the next blog!
