New Comic Day! April 17th edition.

Hey X-Maniacs, X here to bring in yet another New Comic Day.  Last week I ended up picking up a lot of comics, but, on the plus side, there were some real gems in there.  This week?  We have a shot at another good week!  But I'm getting ahead of myself, here are the books I should be picking up in a few...  Nightwing #19, Red Hood and the Outlaws #19, Age of Ultron #6, Captain America #6, Captain Marvel #12, Daredevil #25, Dark Avengers #189, Iron Man #8, Nova #3, Superior Spider-Man #8, Thunderbolts #8, Venom #34, X-Factor #254.  13 books for the week is right around perfect for me.  I'll be reviewing Age of Ultron #6 on Thursday, and Captain America on Saturday.  The rest of the comics listed there I'll toss into Monday's Best of the Rest post...  Unless JT reviews 'em, then naturally I won't review 'em.  And yeah, that'll do it for me, now I'll hand you guys over to JT and give a cheery X out.

Hey Todd Squad, JT here with my comic haul for this week. Since X has done the intro and all that crap, we'll get right to my books! I plan on picking up Justice League #19 (Undecided on this), Red Hood and the Outlaws #19 (Wooooo, No more Lobdell!!!), Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth #4, Age of Ultron #6, Captain American #6, Captain Marvel #12, Iron Man #8, Nova #3 and Superior Spider-Man #8. Hm... weird haul. You can expect me to review Superior Spider-Man, Red Hood and the Outlaws and either Justice League or Nova. And as always, expect those on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday. Now, that's it for me, until next time, this is JT, signing off!


  1. JT! Are you gonna be reading All-Star Western next week? BOOSTER'S BACK :D

    1. Hey Caz, I found out about Booster returning a few weeks ago, and I'm a big fan of him but I don't have any interest in it to be honest. I'm more interested in the rumors that he's going to have his own comic where he remembers Pre-52 continuity.

    2. Now that is a rumor that I have not heard but would be very interested in.
      And while I'm most certainly NOT interested in Jonah Hex and the old west and all that other stuff, I've determined that I will pump out the money while he's involved in the series. I think it's worth it because it will likely tie into things to come. I'm really excited for when he begins to work with A.R.G.U.S. (as teased in the JLI Annual) which makes me wonder if he won't somehow become part of the whole JLA series somehow.
      I'm curious though as to how it will really work out in the end. I think it's clear that eventually they will find a way to re-merge the two timelines, but probably not soon. He may also have something to do with the whole Earth-2/JL crossover that Robinson has been teasing in interviews lately. I'm still really enjoying E2 after almost a year now. I think that, while some say that it's the dump for all the characters nobody else wants to use, it still has plenty of potential and I think that Robinson and Scott are really doing a brilliant job on it.

  2. Wow, both of you got Iron Man this week. Truth be told, I'm thinking of dropping the title. Gillen is still my guy, and the book has been ok, but the fact is that it's a $3.99 book. At that price, a book has to be consistently great, and I don't see this book getting there. The first arc was fine, but I have no idea where Gillen is going with this outer space arc. If the last few issues are indicative of where the series is going, then I won't miss it.
