So instead of putting up my Comic Gazing post on Wednesday night as I usually do, I figured I'd put it up a day early... And to be perfectly honest with you, I think I'll be permanently moving Comic Gazing to Tuesdays from now on. Why not look at the upcoming books a day in advance as opposed to the day they're coming out? As for tomorrow, I am HOPING to put up 4(yes FOUR!)new reviews, although we'll see how that works out... What will I be reviewing? My current favorite for mini-series of the year, War of the Supermen #1-4. I read all four issues last night before going to bed, and I've got to say I was EXTREMELY impressed. If you want to know just how impressed I was, you'll have to check back tomorrow! But that's later, let's get back to the here and now and check out which books will be on my pull list.
Batgirl #11: Yes please!!! Interest Level: 10 out of 10.
Batman #700: Ugh, it's written by Grant Morrison, and he's going to be spotlighting his boy Damian Wayne in it... I'll say it again, UGH! Interest Level: 5 out of 10.
Booster Gold #33: Interest Level: 7 out of 10.
Justice League Generation Lost #3: Last issue was awesome, but with the unfortunate arrival of the fake Blue Beetle I get the feeling this mini is about to take a nosedive... Interest Level: 8 out of 10.
Outsiders #30: This is a book that's BARELY still on my pull list... Interest Level: 5 out of 10.
Secret Six #22: This is another comic that's barely staying on the old pull list. Interest Level: 5 out of 10.
Titans #24: I'm cautiously optimistic about this comic... Interest Level: 8 1/2 out of 10.
Avengers Academy #1: Hank Pym leading a bunch of Avengers newbies?!? Written by Christos Gage? Hell yeah! Interest Level: 9 1/2 out of 10.
Captain America #606: Well, I can't say I like the premise of this story(Baron Zemo back to his evil roots), but Ed Brubaker has yet to let me down, so we'll see what happens... Interest Level: 9 out of 10.
Daredevil #507: Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Invincible Iron Man #27: That's right, I'm going to give the Iron Man series a shot! Trust me, nobody is more surprised then me! Interest Level: 6 1/2 out of 10.
SHEILD #2: *shrugs* Interest Level: 5 out of 10.
Ultimate Comics Avengers 2 #3: Interest Level: 2 out of 10.
Uncanny X-Men #525: Nope, won't be reading this... Interest Level: 0 out of 10.
Young Allies #1: What the hell, I'll give this first issue a shot. Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
And it finally seems to be happening... Marvel edges out DC this week by a count of 8 to 7! Although to be honest, I'm only getting Uncanny X-Men because it's one of my subscription titles, and I have NO intention of reading it, but still, number-wise Marvel comes out on top this week. With the way both companies have been going lately, I'm not really THAT surprised, although I did think it was going to take Marvel a bit longer before they took the crown from DC. Oh well, Long Live Marvel and Avengers Assemble!!!
