It's Wednesday, it's the first week in September, and I am X. What does it mean when you put those three things together? It means it's New Comic Day of course! This is actually my first NCD post since June 6th... Which is actually a hell of a long time... Anywho, let's get to the heart of this post... The comic books! I ended up coming home from the comic shop with the following books: Hypernaturals #3, Stormwatch #0, Hell Yeah #5, Amazing Spider-Man #693, Avengers Academy #36, Dark Avengers #180, Deadpool #60, First X-Men #2, Hawkeye #2, Invincible Iron Man #524, Mighty Thor #19, Venom #24, X-Factor #243. So Ol' X ended up with 13 books for the week. That is the perfect number of books in my honest opinion. Not too many, not too few, just perfect. As for JT, he'll post what he's getting a little bit later on in the post... Probably. We're still getting used to this whole "sharing the blog," thing.
Now, normally this is the part of the post where I give my Pick and Runt of the Litter, or the comics I most and least want to read. This time around though not only will I tell you the Pick and the Runt, I'll tell you which comics you can expect JT and myself to review over the course of the next 6 days... First things first, the comic book I'm most looking forward to reading this week is Amazing Spider-Man #693. And this was actually a very difficult decision because there are a lot of really strong books dropping this week... Spidey, Avengers Academy, Deadpool, Hawkeye, Thor, Venom, etc. What puts Spidey over the top for me? One word... Alpha. 'Nuff said. This week's Runt of the Litter? That has to be Hell Yeah #5. I was thisclose to dropping that series last month, but a strong #4 gave this series a reprieve. As it is though, this series is still on a pretty short leash, meaning a less than stellar issue could easily see this comic leaving my pull list. Next up are the comics I plan on reading out of that bunch... Spidey and Hawkeye are definite, and will be posted Thursday and Saturday respectively. I'm also leaning towards reviewing Venom for Monday, but I could easily be swayed to review something else... Just sayin'... As for JT, I know he'll be reviewing Avengers Academy and Deadpool. Much like myself though, he was undecided on that final review. As of right now, the next four days will see reviews for Spidey, Avengers Academy, Hawkeye and Deadpool. Monday and Tuesday's reviews? To be determined... And that's gonna do it. Until next time? X out.
And JT has tagged in! Hey guys, since X has done all the heavy lifting, for ONCE, I'm just gonna pop in and let you guys know what I picked up Earth 2 #0, Green Lantern #0, Smallville #5, World's Finest #0, Guarding The Globe #1, Amazing Spider-Man #693, Avengers Academy #36, Deadpool #60, First X-Men #2, Hawkeye #2, Venom #24, and Ultimate Spider-Man numero 14. Like X mentioned, I'm definitely reviewing Avengers Academy and Deadpool, but for my last review I'll leave it in the hands of the people. It's a democracy up in here! Well, for me anyway. :P As of right now, I'm leaning towards First X-Men or GL, but you guys decide, and expect to see it on Tuesday, til then, we are outta here!
