Hey guys, it's Wednesday which means it's time for another New Comic Day post! And boy, this was a BIG comic book week for yours truly! I came out of the comic book store with... wait for it... 17 new comics! Yep, 17. Granted, one was for my sister and I probably won't be reading it, but still, after 14 books last week, I was half hoping for a lighter week... Oh who am I kidding, that's a boldface lie... I LOVE walking out of the comic shop with a whole load of new books tucked securely under my arm!
Before I get into what I picked up this week, I want to take a look back at last week's NCD post. Last week I said that I would review every single new comic that I had picked up last Wednesday. As I stated earlier, I brought 14 books. As of this writing, I posted 16 reviews between last Wednesday's post and this post! So it looks like I more than accomplished what I set out to do, right? Umm, not quite... There were a few comics I picked up last Wednesday that I didn't get around to, mainly because they were mini-series that I hadn't read the prior issue for yet. For example, I couldn't read that Last Family of Krypton #3 comic because I still haven't read issue #2. But I made up for that by reviewing a few of my subscription books, and I'm pretty proud of myself for managing to bust out 16 reviews last week. So proud in fact that I want to make another guarantee... I shall review 17 comics between this post and my next New Comic Day post! Yep, I just went there!
Okay, that clears up last week's housekeeping, let's get into this week's books. I currently have the following comics resting next to me: Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Batgirl #1, Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Red Robin #1, Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Batman and Robin #1, Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Outsiders #1, Untold Tales of Blackest Night #1, Booster Gold #37, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #5, Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #3, Invincible Iron Man #31, Justice League: Generation Lost #11, Outsiders #33, X-Men #4, The Thanos Imperative #5, Shadowland: Blood on the Streets #3, Shadowland #4, I Am An Avenger #2 & Hellblazer: City of Demons #1. Whew! For the record, that last title, the Hellblazer one, is for my sister, so I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to take the time to read it or not. As for the books I'm most looking forward to, I'd go with; Thanos Imperative #5, Shadowland #4 and X-Men #4. As for the book that I am absolutely dreading, that would definitely be Return of Bruce Wayne #5! I STILL haven't read Return #3 or #4 because the first two issues were painfully bad... I guess when I review #5 I'll also take the time to review #3 & #4 as well. Besides that, I'm also 3 issues behind in my Gen Lost reading, so that's another comic that I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to. Okay, that was a long post, and I have a lot of comics to get to, so I think I'll shut it down right here. Until next time, X out.
