New Comic Day! March 21st edition
Hey X-Maniacs, X here with a New Comic Day post! Huzzah! I'm actually at work right now, and plan on going to the comic shop when I get out, so I don't actually have any new comics in my hands at this time... However, here's what I expect to get upon hitting the comic shop later on today... Batman #7, Hellblazer #289, Nightwing #7, Red Hood and the Outlaws #7, Supergirl #7, Amazing Spider-Man #682, Avengers: X-Sanctions #4, Deadpool #52, Fear Itself: The Fearless #11, Invincible Iron Man #514, Kick Ass 2 #7, New Mutants #39, Thunderbolts #171, Wolverine #303, X-Factor #233. So that's 15 books up for this week... That's really not that bad a number, but there is a problem with it, which I'll get to later on in this post... This week's Pick of the Litter isn't really that straightforward, as there are A LOT of good to very good books coming out this week. If I could only afford one to read, I'd go with Deadpool #52. The Dead storyline has been pretty good thus far, and with a Deadpool/Daken confrontation on the horizon, I'm really looking forward to this one. X-Sanctions, Kick Ass 2, Batman, Spidey, Iron Man, New Mutants and X-Factor, could all also be really good, which I'm pretty excited about. On the other hand, this week's Runt of the Litter, the book I'd leave at the comic shop if I ran out of money, is Wolverine #303. I'm tired of Wolverine's adventure in Japan. Sure, it hasn't been as bad as I expected it to be, but I'm ready for it to end. Red Hood and Nightwing were also in consideration for this week's Runt. Now, normally a week where I have 15 books would see me doing 2 reviews for 6 nights and 3 reviews on a single night. However, my work schedule this week is a killer, and I'm not sure if I'll have the time to do 2 reviews nightly... I'll try my damnedest, but I'm not making any promises... Take tonight for example... Normally I'd promise two reviews, but since I have an early day of work ahead of me tomorrow, I can't make that promise... I will say I'll definitely review Deadpool, and I'll TRY to review another comic, but that might not happen... We'll see. And that'll do it. Expect 15 new reviews over the course of the next 7 days, but who knows how many reviews I'll be doing per day... Anyway, until next time, X out.
