Hey there X-Maniacs, it's Wednesday, which means it's time for another New Comic Day! Before I get into what I picked up as well as the Pick and Runt of the week, a quick question... Most of the past week saw me do quicker type reviews than I usually do, which worked out quite nicely for me, since I had a few busy days/nights and couldn't really spend all that much time typing up big, long reviews. So here's the question... Does anybody really have any major gripes about me cutting back on the length of the reviews I do? I mean for some books I WANT to type out a huge, long-winded posts because I really enjoyed the comic, but some books either don't really inspire me enough to spend a good 15-20 minutes typing about them, or don't really need super long write-ups. Besides being easier for me to type, I kind of figure the Quick Look reviews are easier to read. But I'm open for suggestions, and if a mess of people ask me to go back to the other type of reviews, then I will. If not, I'll probably alternate between my regular reviews and the Quick Look reviews.
Now that I've taken care of that, let's take a gander into my bag from the comic shop and see what I brought home with me. Justice League Dark #5, Teen Titans #5, Voodoo #5, Avengers Solo #4, Captain America and Bucky #626, Daken: Dark Wolverine #20, Deadpool #49.1, Mighty Thor #10, Secret Avengers #21.1, X-Men Legacy #261... Hey, look at that, a very reasonable 10 books this week! Well, kind of... I also picked up Green Lantern: New Guardians #5, but I mainly picked it up because my sister is enjoying it... I absolutely hate it passionately, and as such, am not sure if I'm going to bother reading it. If I DO read it, I shall be scoring it using Brightest Day Rules, which will at least amuse me. As for this week's Pick of the Litter, I'm going to go with Secret Avengers #21.1, if only because I am extremely curious to see what Rick Remender does with this book. This week's Runt of the Litter is... Um, I want to say New Guardians #5, but since I may not even read that book, I can't really choose it. Instead, I'll go with the thus far terrible Justice League Dark book. If Zatanna and Constantine weren't in this series? I'd have dropped it LOOOONG ago. With 10+ books this week, I should have 2 reviews up each night between now and next Tuesday. As for tonight, expect reviews for Secret Avengers and Deadpool #49.1. And that's it. Remember to check the scan blog as I'll have this week's Random Scan posted there pretty soon. Until later, X out.
