I agree with chap22 on FC. Worse that I have to read FC: Submit to understand the first part with Black Lightening and the Tattoo Man. Though I thought the best part was the Black Adam scene. Still I couldn't help but look at certain pages wondering if heroes I liked survived (so far counted Jaime, Rose, and Tim no Cass or Steph yet *sniffle*).

Also this kinda spoils JSA doesn't it with Kingdom Come Superman being gone and the upcoming Black Adam storyline as well?

Next issue for FC is the big Supergirl vs Mary Marvel fight yes?

I actually thought this was the best issue of FC so far. The story actually had flow to it and seemed to actually have some moments of folks dealing with their emotions. It still wasn't great or anything, but it was good. Maybe it's just lowered expectations though.

SI was in fact awesome this week. The two tie ins I picked up, Thunderbolts and New Avengers, were also great. It really feels like Norman will be running SHIELD in the end though. I loved the moment with Bullseye, in Thunderbolts both Daredevil and Spiderman are visible, but by far the moment with Clint picking up the bow was the best in the book. Great issue and I can't wait to see it play out in the finale. This is a much better crossover.

There's some other books like Blue Beetle that I'll post some thoughts on tomorrow, but I want to watch the World Series now.

I've enjoyed it, but I need to save money and was thinking of dropping it after this arc. It's a tough choice right now though, Norman is really interesting and there are lots of cool things going on. The SI story was lots of fun though.

if Norman comes the head of SHEILD (another SI prediction I had), I just may pick it up.

I think Songbird will join the Dark Avengers, and fulfill her Avengers appearance in Avengers Forever.

I really liked Final Crisis 4, and am about to read Secret Invasion 7 and Captain America.
I'm saving Cap for last because it's my favorite book.

Just finished Cap. I've never read Cap prior to Bru writing the book and enjoyed Batroc.
