I really dug the concept of time-fighters. The science of everything was a little too densely packed in and I felt a little cheated that I didn't get to REALLY get into anything like in Transhuman, but I liked the story well enough. After finishing, I felt that if I was to strip the science behind the story away and read the story, it was a bit generic. The art was cool though and I liked the cool time-fighter ships. The whole thing felt too condensed, like it should have been an issue or two longer. I would have liked a better explanation as to why the son goes on to be what he is. Kinda weird though.


The ending felt a bit rushed to you too?

More like it was very abrupt. I would have liked to see more expansion on how Dom got to be he leader of the bad guys.

So today I got a book in the mail (Hickman F4 v3) and that shit full out hand puncture marks in it. Took it to the store right away. Now I have to wait for the replacement.

Puncture marks? Did someone try to eat it?

The Flash Geoff Johns Omnibus Vol. 2 - Much larger than the first volume, I'm only about 1/4 of the way through. So far its filled with all sorts of Wally West Flash fun but the entire gigantic book is basically building to the creation and first appearance of the all-new Zoom and I just want to get there already! Putting my impatience aside, like I said, this book is filled with all sorts of good stories featuring Wally West as the Flash. As much as I enjoy the current Flash series, Wally West is and always will be my Flash, so getting to know him again has been quite enjoyable.

Daredevil: the Man Without Fear

Reread this last night and fucking LOVED it. The only setback was the two issues full of Elektra stuff that I wasn't really too keen on. I think I appreciated the art a lot more this time around. The one thing I wanted more of was Kingpin's story. It would have been cool to see how Kingpin came up alongside Daredevil, rather than so much Elektra silliness.
