Hey there X-philes, it's the Duke of Disaster himself here with a new New Comic Day post!!! The “Duke of Disaster”? Ugh... Man, I don't even know what to say after that horrible line... Okay X, shake it off and move on... So today was Wednesday, meaning it was time for me to drive to the comic book store and spend oodles of cash-money on comic books... “oodles of cash-money”? What's the matter with me tonight?
That's it, enough funny business(THAT was funny?!), let's get into the meat of this thus far meaningless post. As always, before moving forward, let's look backwards at last week's post. I said that I'd post 16 reviews by today during last week's NCD post and I managed a measly 12 reviews... Epic fail you say? Not so fast bucko! Last week I did mention that there was a good chance that I wouldn't be able to reach the 16 post plateau due to an enormous amount of school work and life related junk that popped up this week. So yeah, I failed to reach 16 reviews, but I was close... That should count for something, right? Right?!? Meh, I tried.
So yes, last week was a bit of a letdown, but I'm hoping to turn things around and get back on track this week. Man am I gabby and nonsensical(or more accurately, more nonsensical than usual)this week... Enough talk, let's see what I picked up this week. Red Hood: The Lost Days #6, Superboy #1, Hawkeye and Mockingbird #6, Avengers Academy #6, Brightest Day #13, JSA All-Stars #12, Namor #3, Young Allies #6, Secret Six #27, Captain America: Man Out of Time #1, Generation Hope #1, Freedom Fighters #3 & Invincible #75. That gives me a grand total of 13 books. Well, actually it's more like 12 books, because I can't read Invincible #75 since I'm still playing catch-up with that series. So let's go with 12 books. And since today is the day after Election Day I feel like making some sort of promise, just like all of those politicians do... By next week's NCD post I SHALL have 12 new reviews posted!!! And UNLIKE every single politician in the known world, I fully intend on keeping my promise! I won't blame other bloggers if I don't get my reviews done, nor will I spend my week searching for imaginary weapons of mass destruction or fooling around with interns. No, I am a man of my word, a man of morality and virtue. Many of my friends and associates have gone so far as to say that I am perfect, but I'm much to modest to repeat their words. No, I won't claim to be perfect, even though everybody I've ever met, as well as several people I haven't met have told me that I am indeed perfect. Nope, I'm not going to claim that I'm perfect, even if everybody thinks so. My modesty prevents me from doing so. BUT, if you're looking for a man of morality, virtue and yes, perfection, then next time you're voting, consider doing things the perfect way like me and vote X! My name is X and I approve this blog post. Hmm... That was weird... Oh well, what more is there to say besides X out!
