Here we go again! It's X here, once again welcoming everybody to a new installment of New Comic Day! Huzzah! There should be some really good books coming out this week, and before I even check this week's comic list I already know what this week's Pick of the Litter is going to be! As usual, I'm currently at work, but when I get free, here are the comics I intend on getting... Stormwatch #9, Teen Titans Annual #1, Amazing Spider-Man #685, Avengers Academy #29, Avengers vs X-Men #3, Daredevil #12, Exiled #1, Invincible Iron Man #516, Venom #17, Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega #5, X-Factor #235. So 11 books... And let me just come right out and say it. Most of those books? They should be awesome! Seriously, when I get my comic books home, I always put them in three piles. The ones I can't wait to read, the ones I'm interested in, and the ones I expect nothing from. This week? There are at least FIVE books in the “can't wait to read” pile, and only two in the “expect nothing from” pile. That NEVER happens! As for this week's Pick of the Litter? It is, as I'm sure most of you expected, Avengers vs X-Men #3. I've enjoyed the hell out of the first two issues and the Vs issue of this event we've gotten thus far, and I'm hoping that Marvel keeps bringing the awesome with this issue. On the other end of the spectrum, this week's Runt of the Litter is Teen Titans Annual #1. It has two things going against it. The first is a story I'm not very keen on, while the second is a painfully high price... You see kids, THIS is the ugly side of being an obsessive collector! You end up getting stuck with something you KNOW you're going to hate, but are compelled to buy it in order to keep your collection complete. Yep, I'd be a shrink's dream! And there you have it. Tonight I'll be reviewing AvX #3(obviously) and Avengers Academy #29(again, obviously!). Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to get the posts for those two books up until VERY late tonight. Like 2-3 hours later than usual. But I'll do my damnedest to make sure those reviews are up tonight. As for tomorrow it's Exiled #1 and Iron Man #516. And that brings us to the end of this post. Until later, X out.
The (not so) Random Scan of the Week!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, back in the 1980's there was an X-Men vs Avengers mini-series! But let's ignore that for now... Check out Magneto's swank-ass boots!
