I read this tonight. I really liked it and how everything was wrapped up.


Oh I agree. I don’t normally buy new comics but that’s one I did pick up digitally when it came out 6 months ago, but I have to read it again because I have forgotten some of the details.

If you haven’t been reading Endless Winter. Don’t sleep on it. It’s a GREAT story and I’d love more event books like it. It’s fun teases some small things and is very well paced.

The next few weeks will be like the dim dawn before the bright sunrise of Future State coming up on the horizon. We’d love to hear your thoughts though on the comics that were published during this interim period that are appearing on DCUI week to week now.

Just read Next Batman Second Son. I just want to say that the actual plot is a little confusing, but I love what Ridley IV is doing with Renee Montoya. There has been very little focus on her right now, and while I wish we could get a little more in her head. I appreciate the little snippits.

I’ve been reading it as well and just trying to hang in there because I keep asking myself “why am I in this location in the story” and “why is this important to the story.”

But hey seeing the DC Direct issue this week as well makes it pretty obvious we need to follow this series.

If I can work up the nerve, I will say something.
