Rejoice! Tis Wednesday, meaning tis time for Ye New Comic Day! Yeah, enough of that... I am SWAMPED with school work(two 5 page papers, a smaller 2-3 page paper and a group presentation that has to run at least 20 minutes... On the plus side though, only a week and a half to go!), so this is going to be a rather brisk post... As such, let's get right to last week's books. Last week's Runt of the Litter(that would be the comic I was LEAST looking forward to reading, just in case there was any confusion...) was Brightest Day #24, and boy did it deliver! I gave that comic a score of -419 out of 10, making it the lowest scoring(and worst!) comic ever on this blog. The best thing I can say about Brightest Day is at least it's finally over. The worst thing I could say about it? Trust me, you don't want me to go there... As for last week's Pick of the Litter, I went with X-23 #9, and it wasn't that bad, getting a solid 8 1/2 out of 10.
So there we go, last week is taken care of, on to this week! I managed to pick up the following books earlier today... Freedom Fighters #9, JSA All-Stars #18, Secret Six #33, Superboy #7, Weird Worlds #5, Annihilators #3, Uncanny X-Force #9, Avengers Academy #13, Giant Size Avengers Academy #1, Captain America: Hail Hydra #5, Wolverine: The Best There Is #6, Deadpool Annual #1, Fear Itself #2, Captain America: First Vengeance #1, X-Men: Prelude to Schism #1 and Fear Itself: Home Front #2. I would have picked up Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1, but my blinding hatred of Christopher Yost prevented me from doing so, so that will be the ONLY Fear Itself title I don't buy. Okay, this week's Pick of the Litter is pretty easy, I'm going to go with Fear Itself #2. I wasn't blown away by the first issue of this event, but I'm still holding out hope here. As for this week's Runt, I'll go with... Huh, I'm not really dreading anything this week... I guess I'll go with Weird Worlds #5, only because I really didn't enjoy the last issue. But all in all, this week looks pretty good. Alright, I've got to get going, I'll leave you guys with THE Random Scan of the Week, and leave with the usual sign-off... X out!
