New Comic Day! July 27th edition.

Hey all, it's Wednesday, meaning it's time for the weekly New Comic Day post!! As usual, I picked up a ridiculous amount of books this week, add that to the fact that I am very deeply entrenched in Mass Effect 2(which is an amazing game), and yeah, this post is going to be uber-short! Before I get to the stuff I snagged today, here's a look back at last week. Last week's Pick of the Litter was Invincible Iron Man #506, and it delivered as expected, coming away with a strong 9 out of 10 score. On the other hand, last week's Runt of the Litter, Generation Hope #9, came away with an AMAZING 8 out of 10... Considering that book usually gets scores under 5 from me, an 8 is a minor miracle! Overall, the average score for last week's comic books was a 6.44, which was actually different than the past two weeks, which eerily came out to an identical 6.65. On the negative side though, that's the lowest average score I've ever had...

With that taken care of, on to this week, and the books I just picked up a few minutes ago at the comic shop... Action Comics #903, Detective Comics #880, Gotham City Sirens #25, Teen Titans #98, Wonder Woman #613, Invincible #81, Amazing Spider-Man #666, Captain America and Bucky #620, Fear Itself: The Deep #2, Fear Itself: The Worthy #1, Mighty Thor #4, New Mutants #28, Ultimate Comics Fallout #3, Venom #5, Uncanny X-Force #12, Wolverine: The Best There Is #8, X-Men: Schism #2 & Batman: The Dark Knight #4. So as usual, nearly 20 comics, as my summer of insane comic book spending rolls on. This week's Pick of the Litter was extremely easy, as it HAS to be New Mutants #28. This is really the make or break issue for this series for me, as this should have all of the fallout from the past three issues involving my all time favorite comic book character, Nate Grey. It could be insanely awesome, or it could be horrifyingly bad. I shall put all of my trust in the hands of the capable writers, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. As for the Runt of the Litter, that “honor” goes to Fear Itself: The Deep #2.... And let me tell you right now, that was a VERY difficult decision, because this is one of those RARE weeks when I'm looking forward to nearly every book I picked up... If you've been around this blog often, you KNOW that doesn't always happen! And that'll do it. It's back to Mass Effect 2 for me, before I get a few comics up and posted later on today/tonight. Here comes the Random Scan of the Week, and as for me, it's X out time.

The Random Scan of the Week!“I'm Jason Todd, and I ain't NOBODY'S bitch!!” JT, that was for you.


  1. Lmao, I ain't nobody's bitch! And I love that he graduated from the streets of Crime Alley...with a Doctorate in Thuganomics :P

  2. Well did I promise I'd find a place to sneak that quote in or didn't I? :P

    "with a Doctorate in Thuganomics" I KNOW I should say something to that, but I just can't think of the right words... Nicely done, JT.

  3. As you did, I'm just waiting for other quotes to pop up now... I may have to use a few as well.

    Haha, the only person who could see Jason... was The Joker. So of course that makes Joker The Game, right? :P

  4. HA! @ Joker being The Game... "I am the Joker-ah... And I am-ah... That-ah damn good-ah!!" Hmm, maybe that wouldn't work after all...

  5. I can't believe I'm a day late on commenting on this lovely blog!! For shame, I shall punish myself at a later date, lol. But while I am here I shall tell you what I'm looking forward to reading.
    1. Wonder Woman (JT told me who the other WW is, I plan on playing catch up tonight after I read my Zenescope comics)
    2. Detective Comics (after that last issue, I must read this review)
    3. Siren's
    4. Venom
    5. X-Men: Schism (Which I'm about to read your review on right now)

    Those will be the 5 I can't wait to read your reviews on, especially WW and Venom.

  6. At the rate I'm reviewing these comics, I should have all of those reviews up by the weekend! How about that! :D
