Hey there X-Maniacs, X here to celebrate yet another new comic day, the first one with my friend/lackey JT as a part of the blog! :P So huzzah and all that jazz! From the looks of things, this should be a rather packed week here at the blog... How packed you ask? Well, let's take a peek into the old comic bag and see what I snagged this week! Irredeemable #34, Stormwatch #6, Fatale #2, Invincible #88, Amazing Spider-Man #679, Avengers Academy #25, Avengers: X-Sanction #3, Defenders #3, Fear Itself: The Fearless #8, Uncanny X-Force #21(AGAIN?!), Venom #13($3.99?!? WTF?!), WINTER SOLDIER #1(!!!!), X-Factor #231. So 13 books, which is the PERFECT number of books in a week for me.
This week's Pick of the Litter is pretty easy to call, and should be pretty obvious to all of you, seeing as that only one comic listed above is in all caps and was followed by four exclamation marks... Still can't figure it out? Huh... Well, it's Winter Soldier #1! Bucky Barnes' very own ongoing series! How frigging sweet is THAT?! So yeah, that's the first book I'll be reading and reviewing later on tonight. As for this week's Runt of the Litter... Hmm, there really aren't a lot of Runt-worthy books listed here... I'm tempted to go with Venom #13, even though I love the series, simply due to Marvel jacking up the cover price... But no, this week's Runt has to be Uncanny X-Force #21. Yes, I love this series and all, but I'm not enjoying the current storyline, and to be totally honest, I'm tired of reading a new issue of this series practically every week. Give my wallet a break, Marvel! Please!! Now, this week is kind of tricky... I have some personal stuff to deal with towards the end of the week, and with my Giants in the Super Bowl on Sunday, there's NO way I'll be posting ANYTHING that day... Hopefully JT can fill in for me or something, because I'll be absent for sure. I'll definitely be posting at least two reviews every night(except Sunday, as previously stated). Bottom line? I have NO idea what I'll be reviewing and when, except for tonight with Winter Soldier and Avengers Academy. Tomorrow will be Avengers: X-Sanction & Stormwatch, and then things start to get a bit foggy. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. And with ALL that out of the way, it's time for me to end this post. Until later, with those two reviews I mentioned, X out.
