New Comic Day! October 3rd edition.

Huzzah, it's another New Comic Day!!  This is actually a big week, as we get the final part of Avengers vs X-Men...  One guess at what this week's first review is going to be...  Anyway, this looks to be a relatively small comic week for me.  How small, well, see for yourself!  Hypernaturals #4, Stormwatch #13, Fatale #8, Amazing Spider-Man #695, Avengers Academy #38, Avengers vs X-Men #12, AvX VS #6, Minimum Carnage Alpha #1, Uncanny X-Force #32.  Yep, Ol' X is only getting 9 books...  And I can't even read two of them(Hypernaturals and Fatale) because I'm not caught up with those two series!  So that's only SEVEN review-able books for me!  I'll be doing four reviews this week(I know, MADNESS!!!), with the first one on tap for 8PM tonight.  That book?  AvX #12, of course.  I'll also be reviewing AvX VS #6, Amazing Spider-Man #695 and Uncanny X-Force #32(you see that, JT! I left Avengers Academy for you, 'cause I'm such a nice guy!).  My review days are Thursday, Saturday and Monday this week, and as always, you can expect my reviews up at 8PM.  Unlike that other guy...  Speaking of that other guy, let's see what JT picked up and plans on reviewing. X out, JT up.

And now that the boring guy has spoken, welcome to JT's New Comic Day, starring JT, featuring JT and a special guest appearance by none other than JT! My comic week is actually pretty impressive, as I ended up grabbing the following books, Detective Comics #13, Earth 2 #5,  Green Lantern #13, Worlds' Finest #5, Amazing Spider-Man #695, Avengers Academy #38, Avengers vs. X-Men #12, AVX VS. #6, and Minimum Carnage Alpha #1. And unlike that first guy, my reviews will be up BEFORE 8 PM, because it's a review, not dinner. :P And since my buddy X did leave me Avengers Academy, out of guilt probably, or a trap, you can expect me to review Avengers Academy #38, Green Lantern #13, and Minimum Carnage Alpha #1. My review days are Friday, Sunday and Tuesday, so expect to see those reviews then. Til then, this is JT, signing off.

  1. Hey Nice to see that you JT picked Detective Comics now that Tony Daniel is off of it I (comparatively) 1,000,000 times better!

  6. Totally off subject, but did you guys read "Peter Parker, Spider-Man" #156.1? (As you know, I'm making my way through my Spidey backlog and this issue is the first of the 50th anniversary .1s that I've read.) It's spectacular. If you get a chance, grab it. It's Roger Stern and it's totally going to make your nostalgic.

  7. I think I did read that one, JW... I only read the first one, but I don't remember what the title was. The one I read had to do with the warehouse, if that helps. But yeah, I did enjoy it, don't know why I didn't pick up the others... I guess my shop probably didn't have them in stock? That's all I can think.

  8. I just read DeFalco's "Sensational Spider-Man" #33.1 and #33.2 and they were kind of meh. (I'm not even going to review them, mainly because they're pretty predictable.) So, I think you read the best one to read!

  9. OK, for what it's worth, I just read "Web of Spider-Man" #129.1 and #129.2. They're probably an acquired taste. The story is a bit whacky and the art is really bizarre. But, they're definitely funny, in a weird "actually, we ARE talking about potential murders, so maybe we shouldn't be so light-hearted?" kind of way. If they're in a bargain bin, they're worth a read. But, they're probably not worth $5.98. The Stern issue is the clear winner of these issues.
