It's Wednesday, which means yes, it IS time for another New Comic Day! Huzzah!! As usual, I'm stuck at work, and as of this moment, I haven't gotten my comics for the week yet. I get off at 7 and probably won't have any reviews up until 11 tonight, at the earliest. But wait, I should probably check out what I'm expecting to pick up later on today... Irredeemable #36, Batman #8, Hellblazer #290, Nightwing #8, Red Hood and the Outlaws #8, Supergirl #8, Amazing Spider-Man #684, Avengers #25, Avengers vs X-Men #2, Defenders #5, Invincible Iron Man #515, New Mutants #41, Thunderbolts #173, Uncanny X-Force #24, Venom #16, Wolverine and the X-Men #9 & X-Factor #234. So 17 comics... That's a bit more than I was hoping to see... The rest of my week is REALLY busy with work, so I'll probably be taking some shortcuts on certain books... More on that in a second.
This week's Pick of the Litter is easy, and to be honest, every other week the Pick will probably be the same series... This week it's Avengers vs X-Men #2. Two weeks ago it was Avengers vs X-Men #1. Two weeks from now I'm sure it'll be Avengers vs X-Men #3. You get the picture. On the other side of the equation, this week's Runt of the Litter is Wolverine and the X-Men #9. I really don't like this series and WILL be dropping it after AvX wraps up(yeah, I made my mind up). Hopefully the AvX stuff will make this series somewhat more bearable... So yeah, 17 issues this week... I'll probably do 2 reviews for the first 4 nights and then 3 reviews for 3 nights. But the comics I'm not all that enthusiastic about(Wolvie and the X-Men, Defenders, Nightwing, etc) will be getting some really half-assed reviews... Sorry. As for tonight, I'll eventually get reviews for AvX #2 and probably Batman #8 up much later. I'm still kind of undecided on that second review though... It may end up being something other than Batman. But for now, expect a Batman review. And that'll do it. Until later, X out.
The (not so) Random Scan of the Week!
Yep, I'm STILL doing it!
