Howdy, X-Maniacs! It's Wednesday, meaning it's time for a New Comic Day post! Huzzah and all that jazz! Instead of spending a mess of time on the preamble, let's get right to what books I picked up today... Batman and Robin #6, Grifter #6, Superboy #6, Thief of Thieves #1, Battle Scars #4, Captain America #8, Daken: Dark Wolverine #21, Deadpool #50, Journey Into Mystery #634, New Mutants #37, Secret Avengers #22, Venom #13.1, Wolverine and the X-Men #5, Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega #2. Hey, check that out, I got exactly 14 books, which is pretty much the perfect number of books for me in a week! Awesome!!
Let's see... This week's Pick of the Litter is basically a toss-up between two books, Secret Avengers and Deadpool... Since Pool is only starting a new storyline, while Secret Avengers is starting a whole new direction, I'll go with Secret Avengers. So later on tonight(much later...), expect reviews for first Secret Avengers and then Deadpool. On the other end of the spectrum, this week's Runt of the Litter is another toss-up... This time between Superboy and Daken. Hmm, I'm really torn here... Both comics star characters I really like(or in SB's case, used to like), but the storytelling in their respective books has just been abysmal for the most part as of late. I guess I'll give the slight nod to Superboy. While I'm hoping Daken picks up a bit seeing as that the series is almost finished(I think there are only like 2 issues left to go), I have no such expectations for SB, thus explaining why SB gets the Runt treatment. With 14 comics to get through this week, expect 2 reviews a night, but as always, that is subject to change depending on my schedule. And that'll do it here. I'll be back later on with a pair of reviews, until then, X out.
