Howdy all, it's Wednesday which means it's time for... You all probably know the drill by now, right? And since you guys all know the drill, I can drop the intro! With that out of the way, let us take a gander back at last week to see which books I was most and least looking forward to, and how they wound up preforming. Last week's Runt of the Litter was Brightest Day #21 and man did it EVER deserve THAT moniker!!! It ended up getting a score of -76 out of 10, the second lowest score I've ever handed out at the blog. So yeah, it was bad... Really bad. Last week's Pick of the Litter was Daken: Dark Wolverine #6, which I haven't read just yet... It IS the next comic to be read in my comic pile, so I'd imagine I should have a review up for it by Friday. There. That takes care of last week.
With last week out of the way, let us shift our attentions to this week. First up, I have 4 subscription titles due in the mail this week. Those books would be: Batman and Robin #21, Birds of Prey #10, Titans #33 and Wonder Woman #608... All DC books, and to be honest, I can't say I'm looking forward to ANY of them! Now let's see what I actually picked up from the comic shop earlier today... Batgirl #19, Batman Inc. #3, Booster Gold #42, Captain America: Hail Hydra #3, Justice League: Generation Lost #21, Outsiders #37, Superboy #5, Weird Worlds #3, Zatanna #10, Captain America: The Korvac Saga #4, Hawkeye: Blindspot #2(!!!!!!), Onslaught Unleashed #2, Venom #1 and X-23 #7. Wow, 8 DC books this week... Interesting... Anyway, that gives me a grand total of 14 new books this week(18 including the subscription books). That's a very healthy number. Anytime I can come home with over 12 new comics, I'm a happy camper! This week's Pick of the Litter should be pretty easy considering all the exclamation points I put next to it, but if you still can't figure it out, I'll tell you. It's Hawkeye: Blindspot #2! Hawkeye: Blindspot #1 was possibly the best single issue I've read in over 3 years(and I read A LOT of comics!), so to say I can't wait to read issue #2 is a HUUUUUGE understatement. As for this week's Runt of the Litter, I'll go with Outsiders #37. It's not like I'm dreading it or anything, I just could care less about it. I mean we all know it's getting canned, so I just can't say I'm overly interested in reading it. And I guess that'll have to do it for this week. All that's left to do now is to post the Random Scan of the Week and get back to playing Dragon Age 2. Until next time, X out.
