New Comic Day! January 11th edition
Hey all, it's time for New Comic Day #2 for 2012. Last week saw me take home a very sensible 10 comic books. This week? I'd bet good money that my pull will end up much higher than that... Without further ado, here's what I managed to pick up this week at the comic shop! Batman and Robin #5,
Deathstroke #5, Whispers #1,Grifter #5, Superboy #5, Invincible #87, Amazing Spider-Man #677, Battle Scars #3, Captain America #7, Daken: Dark Wolverine #19, Deadpool #49, Incredible Hulk #4, Scarlet Spider #1, Journey Into Mystery #633, Magneto: Not A Hero #3, Secret Avengers #21, Ultimate X-Men #6, Wolverine #300, Wolverine and the X-Men #4, X-Factor #230, X-Men Legacy #260.1. Well, so much for our nice, reasonable 10 comics from last week... This week I've ended up snagging a ridiculous 19 books. Bah. On the plus side, there are a few good books here, as well as a few series I'll be dropping for certain after their current issue, so there's the silver lining. Now, this week's Pick of the Litter isn't all that cut and dry... I'm going to go with Invincible #87, based solely on how great the last issue was. I gave some consideration to Spidey #677, Deadpool #49 and X-Factor #230, but I have to admit that Invincible is the book I'm most looking forward to reading later on tonight. This week's Runt of the Litter is actually an easy choice. I'll go with Secret Avengers #21. Sure I enjoyed the last issue, but that had to be an aberration as I've detested most of Warren Ellis' run on this series. I'll probably try to post reviews for Invincible, Deadpool and Spidey tonight, probably late tonight, around the midnight hour. I'm not exactly sure how my week is looking, so I'm not going to try to figure out how many books I'll be reviewing each night, but with this many comic books on hand, you can be sure I'll have at the very least 2 comic reviews up nightly... Or at least that's the plan. Remember to check out my comic scan blog for this week's Random Scan(the link is on the right of this page), and until next time, X out.
