Hey there X-Maniacs, it's time for another New Comic Day! Last week I had a pretty abysmal pull(by my standards anyway) with only 10 new comics, I'm sure that number will be way higher THIS week... I man it sure as hell can't possibly be lower! On the plus side, out of those 10 comics from last week, THREE(!!!) received perfect scores from me(which is flat out insane!), while the rest were all very solid, not a single issue scored lower than a 6. So last week was REALLY good, but what about THIS week??? Let's take a look at what old X brought home from the comic shop today... Batman and Robin #3, Deathstroke #3, Grifter #3, Suicide Squad #3, Superboy #3, Battle Scars #1, Fear Itself #7.2, Journey Into Mystery #631, Point One #1, Uncanny X-Force #17, Wolverine #18 and Magneto: Not A Hero #1. So 12 books... My shop still hasn't gotten Teen Titans #2 and I, Vampire #2 in stock for me, so the owner of the shop said he'd give me Teen Titans for free, and if issue #2 was as bad as the first one, that's probably about what it's worth! 12 comics is about the perfect number of new comics for me, so yay me. Let's see, out of all of the books I brought home, the one I am most looking forward to reading, and the comic that is therefore this week's Pick of the Litter is Point One #1. The price tag for this one was rather steep($6!?), but it promises to have 7 new stories as well as set the stage for Marvel in the year 2012, so I'm hoping this comic was worth that steep price. On the other end of the spectrum, this week's Runt of the Litter, the comic I least want to read is Superboy #3... Which is sad because I used to love the Superboy character, but DC decided to turn him into something unrecognizable with the reboot... If this issue is sub-par, there's a VERY good chance I'll do the unthinkable and drop Superboy from my pull list... And there you have it. I'm considering doing 3 new reviews tonight, 3 new reviews tomorrow, and then dropping down to 2 reviews a night which should leave me with a day or two of Retro-Reviews towards the end of the week. As for me, I've got some comics to read, and some reviews to prep for later on. Until next time, X out!
The Random Scan of the Week!Yeah, I know I just posted this recently as part of a larger page, but I liked it so much it's also getting the Random Scan treatment.
