Hey there X-Maniacs, it's Wednesday, meaning it's time for yet another edition of New Comics Day! I am your host, the man they call X! This week is(THANKFULLY!!!) a smallish week for yours truly, which is a good thing since I've yet to get myself a job and as such probably shouldn't be buying 20 something comic books every week... But wait, what comics DID I pick up this week you ask?! Well wonder no longer, here's what I came out of the comic shop with! Irredeemable #31, Stormwatch #3, Invincible #84, Amazing Spider-Man #673, Avengers Academy #21, Fear Itself #7.1(!), Fear Itself: The Fearless #2, New Mutants #33, Uncanny X-Men #1 & X-Men #20. I was thisclose to picking up the Villains for Hire book, but I may wait a week or two for that one depending on what I hear about it. So overall, that's a total of 10 comics for me spread across 4 different comic companies. I'd be very happy with 10 comics every week! With only 12 books to review, I'll do 2 reviews a night for 5 nights and do something special for next Monday and Tuesday. This week's Pick of the Litter is an easy one... It can only be Fear Itself #7.1, which is where we FINALLY get Ed Brubaker writing Captain America after Bucky's death in Fear Itself... I am crossing my fingers, toes, eyes and anything else crossable that somewhere, somehow Brubaker leaves the door open for a Bucky return in this comic... Yes, I know it's a longshot, but a guy can hope. As for this week's Runt of the Litter, I'll go with... huh, with only 12 books, there really aren't a lot of choices... Um, X-Men #20, I guess... It could be good, but since I didn't like the past three issues, I'll be placing X-Men #20 at the bottom of this week's comic pile. And there you have it. Another NCD in the books. As always, here's this week's random comic scan, and until later(and Fear Itself #7.1!), X out.
