Hey X-Maniacs, I have a full day ahead of me what with playing Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and reading a whole slew of new comics! Yes, it's a good life for me. Since I'm eager to get back to my game, let me get right to what books I picked up for this week... Batman #3, Nightwing #3, Red Hood and the Outlaws #3, Supergirl #3, Morning Glories #14, Amazing Spider-Man #674, Avengers #19, Avengers Academy #22, Captain America #4, Deadpool #46, Fear Itself #7.3, Fear Itself: The Fearless #3, Generation Hope #13, Incredible Hulk #2, New Mutants #34, Thunderbolts #164, Ultimate X-Men #3, Venom #9, X-Factor #227 & X-Men #21. Well, that's more like it... I see the past two weeks of me only picking up something like 12 comics each week is over... We're back up to 20 books, with a staggering 15(!!) of them coming from the House of Ideas! That says a lot about how I feel about DC nowadays, doesn't it? Not only that, but out of those 15 Marvel books? I'd say that I am SERIOUSLY looking forward to no less than 6 of them. On top of that, the Image comic(Morning Glories) will probably be one of the first comics I dig into this week. The four DC books? I can honestly say that I'm not all that excited for them... Which is flat out bizarre considering they include Batman(the good series) and two of my favorite DC characters(Jason Todd and Dick Grayson). Tis sad. Anyway, this week's Pick of the Litter? That wasn't really that difficult, believe it or not. It's easily Avengers Academy #22, probably the best ongoing comic book I pick up... Yeah, that's right, I went there. Some consideration went to Venom, New Mutants, Morning Glories, Amazing Spidey and Fear Itself #7.3, but in the end Avengers Academy has been too strong not to pick. On the other end of the spectrum, this week's Runt of the Litter is Generation Hope #13. I figured I'd give this series about 3 issues with the Regenesis stuff and a new writer, and if it STILL doesn't appeal to me, I'll drop it from my pull list... Again. And that's it. With a robust 20 comics this week, I'm going to try to post 3 reviews every night until Tuesday, which will only see two. For tonight, I'll almost definitely be posting reviews for Avengers Academy #22, Morning Glories #14(told you I liked that series) and Fear Itself #7.3. Tomorrow will bring us New Mutants #34, Venom #9 and Amazing Spidey #674. One quick note before I end this post... I'll probably be posting my three reviews for today later than I usually do, probably about 3 hours later. Just wanted to let you guys know in advance. As for me, it's back to UmvC3, so until later, X out!
