Once again it's Wednesday, meaning it's time for a brand new edition of the craze that's sweeping the Interwebs, New Comic Day! I came away with a pretty good haul this week, but as always, before we can look forward, I'll first be looking back. Yep, it's time to look back at that far off and scary land called “Last Week”. Last week I chose Brightest Day #20 as my Runt of the Litter, and I have yet to read it... I mean it's like the LAST thing I have left to read from last week, and I just can't get up the courage to give it a read. I'm sure it'll be horrible, but hopefully I'll have read it and will have put a review for it up by Thursday or Friday. Last week's Pick of the Litter was Amazing Spider-Man #654.1, and it was quite good, although it wasn't the best comic I read last week. That honor went to Captain America: Man Out of Time #4 and Hawkeye: Blind Spot #1, which both received perfect scores. In other words, last week was a pretty good comic reviewing week for me.
But that's enough about last week. Let's get to this week, and we'll start with the comics I'll be expecting to arrive in the mail this week... Action Comics #898, Gotham City Sirens #20, Green Arrow #9, Justice Society of America #48, Captain America #615, Secret Avengers #10 and Uncanny X-Men #533. Okay, with that out of the way, here are the books I just picked up at the comic book shop earlier today. X-Men #8, X-23 #6, Teen Titans #92, Namor #7, Justice League: Generation Lost #20, Invincible Iron Man #510, Deadpool #33, Detective Comics #874, Avengers #10, Amazing Spider-Man #655, Iron Man 2.0 #1 and Fantastic Four #588. So 12 books from the comic shop as well as 7 subscription books gives me a solid 19 books this week. This week's Pick of the Litter is actually REALLY easy. It really can't be anything other than Fantastic Four #588. I mean there are other books here that I'm looking forward to reading(Teen Titans #92, X-23 #6, Amazing Spider-Man #655), but none as much as this last issue of the Fantastic Four. As for this Week's Runt... I... I'm really not sure. I mean I'm expecting something good out of every comic here. I guess the one book I'm least looking forward to reading would be Detective Comics #874, but it's not like I'm dreading it. No, Detective #874 is my Runt in name only. This should be a good week of comic book reading for me. So that's it, I'll add a (not so)Random Scan of the Week and end this post. Until next time, X out.
