New Comic Day! January 4th edition
Hey, check it out, it's Wednesday, meaning it's time for another edition of New Comic Day! Not only that, but this is the first New Comic Day of 2012! Here's hoping we get a great week of books to start the New Year off right. With that said, what books DID I pick up this week? Well, let's take a look! Irredeemable #33, Stormwatch #5, Avengers Academy #24, Avengers: X-Sanction #2, Defenders #2, Fear Itself: The Fearless #6, Thunderbolts #168, Uncanny X-Force #19.1, Uncanny X-Men #4, Wolverine: Alpha and Omega #1 Only 10 books this week? Huzzah! The New Year IS starting off right! I almost picked up the Avengers Annual, but common sense took over and I decided not to pick it up. This week's Pick of the Litter is an absolute no-brainer... It HAS to be the comic I chose as my favorite series of 2011, Avengers Academy! Best comic on the market, with my favorite writer of '11. Yeah, that will definitely be getting read first. As for the first Runt of 2012, that'll have to be Uncanny X-Men #4. After the last issue I honestly wonder why I'm even bothering with this series... I get the feeling that unless things change drastically after the Avengers/X-Men crossover event, this is a series I can easily see myself dropping. Speaking of series I'm considering dropping, this issue of Defenders is going to go a LONG way in helping me decide whether or not this one stays on my pull list, because the first issue was a train wreck... In my humble opinion of course. Let's see... 10 comics means 5 nights of two reviews, with me flexing my (not-so)creative muscle on Monday and Tuesday. Tonight(probably around midnight) I'll have reviews for Avengers Academy and Avengers: X-Sanction up. And there we have it. Another New Comic Day in the books.
