New Comic Day! October 10th edition.

Hey True Believers! JT here with this week's New Comic Day post. This week is actually a pretty packed week for comics, I mean we get the Joker's return AND Uncanny Avengers? Happy Birthday to us! Anyway, let's check out my comic haul. This week I picked up Batman #13, Batman and Robin #13, Suicide Squad #13, Halloween Eve #1, Avenging Spider-Man #13, AVX Consequences #1, Deadpool #62, First X-Men #3, Marvel Universe vs. The Avengers #1 of 4, Scarlet Spider #10 and Uncanny Avengers #1.  That's right, JT picked up 11 books! Who am I, that X-Man guy?! My review days this week are Thursday, Saturday and Monday. As for what I'm reviewing, I plan on reviewing Batman #13, Marvel Universe vs. The Avengers #1, and Scarlet Spider #10. So, I'll see you guys tomorrow with a review for The Joker's return in Batman #13. And now, for a message from my boring co-host, X!

Yep, it's Wednesday alright...  JT took care of the intro quite nicely if I do say so myself, so I'll just get into which books I expect to pick up from the comic shop when I get there later today...  Batman #13, Batman & Robin #13, Grifter #13, Superboy #13, Team 7 #1, Morning Glories #22, Avengers #31, Avenging Spider-Man #13, AvX Consequences #1, Captain America #18, Deadpool #62, First X-Men #3, Invincible Iron Man #526, Scarlet Spider #10, Secret Avengers #32, Space Punisher #4, Ultimate X-Men #17, Uncanny Avengers #1, Wolverine #314...  Wow, so that's a grand total of 19 books, and that's provided I don't impulse buy anything else.  Ugh...  My wallet is gonna feel THIS one.  And JT was griping about a measly 11!  It looks like I'll be reviewing Uncanny Avengers #1, AvX Consequences #1, Deadpool #62 and possibly Captain America #18 or Superboy #13(depending on which one I feel like blabbing about) if I manage to get the review for Uncanny Avengers up later on today.  Regardless, I'll definitely have reviews up on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday.  And that's that, another NCD in the books.  Until next time, X out.

  1. Hey Xman,
    I was curious on your take of the new Young Avengers they have coming out.

    1. While I'm sad it's not going to be Heinberg and Cheung, I'm pretty psyched for this book. Out of all the Marvel Now! stuff, this one if in my top three of books I'm most looking forward to reading. Especially after reading about the line-up. A few original Young Avengers? Marvel Boy?! I am SO looking forward to this one!

    2. I'm hoping that they just accidently left Speed out of the main line up and that he isn't a part of Wiccan's "mistake".

    3. Didn't even mention Kid Loki and he will be written by the same writer. Also liked that they referred to Marvel Boy as the ex-Protector. I will admit that I am cautiously optimistic about Marvel Now, but then again I was somewhat cautiously optimistic about some of the New 52.

    4. Yeah, here's hoping Speed does pop up in that series... Especially since he, and not Billy, actually wanted to continue doing the super-hero thing.

      Yup, the Kid Loki thing is/was great, Jermox. And dropping that awful Protector name is a GREAT thing too, imo. As one of the biggest fans of that character you'll find, I am so happy to see him returning to his roots. I'm actually REALLY hyped for Marvel Now!, especially after reading Uncanny Avengers #1. I think Marvel is doing it the right way. Introducing new series and renumbering things to boost sales, but keeping their continuity, which is what really soured me on the New 52. I mean I went from buying something like 20 DC books pre-New 52, to 25+ DC books when the New 52 first happened, to just 10 DC books a year later... I have total confidence that Marvel will learn from DC's many, many mistakes and make the appropriate corrections... Or at least that's the hope!

  2. Batman #13
    Batman And Robin #13
    Demon Knights #13
    Frankenstein Agent Of S.H.A.D.E. #13
    AvX Consequences #1
    Uncanny Avengers #1

    Only 6 book for me, that's fine. Since I havent got much time now.. I havent been folowing the whole AvsX only trought tien ins of the series I was reading before the event and pick up the last issue just cuz I wanted to know of the Mutants rebirth, I was more interested in the consequences than the story itself.

    And OMG Batman 13 I'm thinks that jokers will be in my nightmares...

  3. I noticed awhile back but did you notice that Captain America's costume is remodeled after his movie version? Not exactly a fan of it.

    1. Really? I picked up that Marvel Now! free preview guide at the comic shop today and Cap's costume seemed pretty much the same. There may have been a few alterations(the pants and boots, I think?), but I could be wrong. I'm pretty lousy on picking up on the art-type stuff though, unless it's a really big, obvious change.

    2. His helmet is actually a helmet that has a strap. You can see it a bit in Uncanny Avengers but it looks like it still has the wings on it. In other Marvel Now images CA head-wings are painted on.

    3. In the AvsX consequences Cap has the movie costume (pased trought DC's New52 take on outfits)

  4. Hopefully you'll actually review Deadpool.
