5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is volume three of “All-Star Batman” that is a part of DC Comics’ recent “rebirth” reboot.  I enjoyed the storyline for this present work more than the previous two volumes.  It seems the “All-Star Batman” is more fast-paced than other Batman titles which can have its strength and weaknesses but being bored won’t be one of them.  But in volume three the timing was right in my opinion along with a great reoccurring theme and human interest’s angle.  The artwork is great as well.  I give this a rating of five out of five.

15 Year Anniversary: Iraq War

This is not a political post.  It just occurred to me that today is the 15th year anniversary of the start of the invasion of the Iraq War.

Of course 15 years later American troops are still there but with different rules of engagement.

I myself was in Iraq starting in April 2003.  Can’t believe it was 15 years ago.  Later in my time with the Marines I served with some of the Marines who entered Iraq in the invasion on that date (if not earlier!).  So much has changed since 2003 and the early to mid 2000s.  I’m at a different place than back then.  I love the Marines that I have served with and because of my love for Jesus I hope they and many others who serve would also come to know the saving power of Jesus personally in their lives.
