Hey guys, it's your very busy(and oh so tired...)amigo X, ready to bring the awesome with another installment of New Comic Day!!! This past week has been a busy one for me, but the finish line is in sight, and I'm racing towards next Monday, which spells the end of this semester of school. Besides that, these past three days have brought us our first measurable snow of the season, which naturally annoyed the hell out of me... Damn lake effect snow... I mean really, why couldn't the snow hold off ONE more week? Once I'm out of school, I could care less HOW much it snows. Oh well, what can you do.
Okay, enough complaints, this post isn't about the sucky weather we denizens of Upstate New York have to deal with, it's actually about comics, so let's get to that. As always, before we take a look at the comics I picked up earlier today, let's first take a look back at my predictions from last week's NCD post. Last week I picked up 13 comics, and promised 7 reviews by the time I posted this week's NCD post. How did I do? I managed to put up 9 reviews, topping my promise, so I'm happy about that. I'd have liked to have gotten 13 reviews up(for the 13 comics I picked up), but schoolwork has to take precedence at this time of year, so all things considered I'm happy with the 9 reviews.
So that was last week, now the question is, what did I pick up this week? Well, I picked up What If? Wolverine: Father #1, Superboy #2, Shadowland: After The Fall #1, Justice League: Generation Lost #15, I Am An Avenger #4, Detective Comics Annual #12, Booster Gold #39, Batgirl #16, Captain America: The Korvac Saga #1 & Widowmaker #1. That's 10 comics, but I've got to say, I am looking forward to most of those books for a change. If I had to pick out just one though, I'd have to say that What If? Wolverine Father #1 would be this week's pick of the litter... But man, that wasn't an easy decision... Batgirl or Widowmaker could have EASILY taken that top spot. This week's runt of the litter? I'll have to go with Booster Gold #39. Yup, since Dan Jurgens has left this series, things have gone drastically downhill for the Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of... Here's hoping we get a writing change on Booster sooner, rather than later. Now for my obligatory weekly promise... Let's see, since I picked up 10 books, I'm going to promise 5 reviews. But that could very easily change depending on when I finally finish up my research paper, since it's the only thing that I really have left to finish off this semester. If I get on the ball and knock that sucker out, expect more reviews. If I'm feeling especially lazy, well then 5 new reviews seems just about right. As always, if you want me to specifically review something drop me a comment. If not, well drop me a comment anyway, I don't mind! That'll do it for now, until next time, X out.
