Hey all, after considering skipping my weekly trip to the comic book shop due to snow, I decided to bear the elements and make my way through the snowy streets to get my comic books. In other words, it IS time for this week's New Comic Day! Before we get into what I picked up earlier today, let's first take a look back and see how my predictions last week turned out... Last week I promised 11 new reviews and I managed to deliver 12, mainly thanks to a last minute Best of the Rest post. But hey, I did manage to surpass my prediction, so huzzah for me. Last week's Pick of the Litter was Avengers: The Children's Crusade #4, which as always, delivered the good. Last week's Runt of the Litter was Brightest Day #17, and quite frankly, I just haven't been able to bring myself around to reading it... I know I'm going to hate it, so why rush into reading it. Most likely I'll read it tonight or tomorrow just to get it over and done with.
Alright, that wraps up last week, let's get into this week's festivities. This week I came away with 13 comics. Amazing Spider-Man #651, Batgirl #17, Booster Gold #40, Captain America: The Korvac Saga #2, Captain America: Man Out of Time #3, Deadpool #31, Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #6, I Am An Avenger #5, Justice League: Generation Lost #17, Secret Six #29, Widowmaker #3, Wonder Girl #1 and Daredevil Reborn #1. So a pretty good mix of good, bad and meh books here, and I'll promise 13 reviews by this time next week. This week's Pick of the Litter is going to have to be Deadpool #31. I have been LOVING Daniel Way's work on this series, and the last issue was probably my favorite DP comic in QUITE some time, so here's hoping the awesomeness continues. This week's Runt of the Litter is Secret Six #29. I used to like this series, but man, I've been disappointed by like the last 15+ issues! Hopefully the Secret Six x-over with Action Comics will give this series the boost it desperately needs. That'll do it for this week, I've got some comic reviews to get started, so I'll drop the Random Scan of the Week and bust out the customary sign-off line... Until next time, X out!
The Random Scan of the Week!Um, why do the other Titans look so shocked? He's a regular, plain looking kid!
