It's Wednesday, which means it's New Comic Day! And this Wednesday is kind of extra special since it ushers in the start of Marvel's latest MEGA-EVENT© Avengers vs X-Men. And yes, before you even ask, I am FULLY in the corner of the Avengers here, without even having read the first issue. But I'm getting ahead of myself... I am currently at work, and as such haven't actually hit the comic shop yet(I get out of work at 4 today). But when I DO get free, here are the books I plan on coming away with... Stormwatch #8, Fatale #4, Invincible #90, Whispers #2, Amazing Spider-Man #683, Avengers vs X-Men #1, Daredevil #10.1, Fear Itself: The Fearless #12, New Mutants #40, Thunderbolts #172, Venom #15, Wolverine and the X-Men #8, Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega #4. So that gives me 13 books this week... I MAY swap out WatXM:AaO#4 for Hell Yeah #2, because I just haven't enjoyed that mini-series AT ALL. Now, I can't review Fatale #4 on account of still not having Fatale #1 in my possession, so that drops me down to 12 reviewable books. I MAY review Green Lantern: New Guardians #7 this week if I find the time since I didn't read it last week, but to be honest with you, there's a REALLY good chance that I'm done with that series and won't bother reading it at all...
Anyway, this week's Pick of the Litter is obviously going to be Avengers vs X-Men #1. I think everybody knew that coming in... This week's Runt of the Litter is Wolverine and the X-Men #8(or Alpha and Omega #4 if I DO decide to get it). This series gets the Big Ol' Fail Award from me as it just hasn't been what I had been hoping for. Most likely, after the AvX event ends, I'll be dropping this series. With 12 books to review, expect 6 days of 2 reviews. As for next Tuesday? I don't know... I may review New Guardians #7 with Brightest Day Rules, I may review Flash #7(the GOOD Flash), or maybe I'll take a well-deserved break and do nothing. We'll see. But that's still a ways out. For tonight? Expect a gala review for AvX #1 and either New Mutants #40 or Spidey #683. And that's it. Until later, X out.
*edit* Avengers Academy #28 came out today so needless to say, that'll be getting reviewed later on tonight with AvX #1.
