New Comic Day! September 21st edition.

It's Wednesday, so you know what that means... It's New Comic Day!!! Instead of killing time with an extended introductory paragraph shooting the breeze and talking about last week's comic books, I'm going to jump right into what I picked up from the comic shop a few minutes ago. Trust me, once you see this week's list of books, you'll understand why I'm rushing through this...

First, here are the two comics that I didn't get last week due to one of the boxes at my comic shop being late due to the epic flooding around my area: Fear Itself: Hulk vs Dracula #1 & Batman and Robin #1. And now here are the comics from THIS week that I snagged today... Batman #1, Catwoman #1, Fables #109, Hellblazer #283, Legion of Superheroes #1, Nightwing #1, Red Hood and the Outlaws #1, Supergirl #1, Wonder Woman #1, Avengers #17, Avengers: The Children's Crusade #7, Captain America #3, Captain America Corps #3, Daredevil #4, Fear Itself: The Home Front #6, Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force #3, Fear Itself: Youth In Revolt #5, Heroes for Hire #12, Invincible Iron Man #508, Thunderbolts #163.1, Ultimate Comics Hawkeye #2, Ultimate Comics X-Men #1, Uncanny X-Men #543, X-Factor #225, X-Men #18 & X-Men: Schism #4... 26 comics(28 when you add the two from last week)?!? God DAMN, that's a new record... And may I also add this before I continue... Holy shit are there some AWESOME comics in this week's pile!!! I mean seriously, there are FIVE comics(Nightwing #1, Red Hood and the Outlaws #1, Children's Crusade #7, Youth In Revolt #5 & Ultimate X-Men #1) that any other week would EASILY be my Pick of the Litter! But only one of those can be this week's Pick, and to be honest, it's really not that difficult a decision when you really get down to it... This week's Pick of the Litter IS Avengers: The Children's Crusade #7, hands down. Let's put it like this... There have been 6 issues of the Children's Crusade mini released thus far, as well as one fill-in issue... Out of those 7 comic books, FIVE of them received perfect scores from me, while the other two? They ONLY received 9 1/2's!!! Avengers: Children's Crusade is the best thing(comics or otherwise) I have read in years, so yeah, it's this week's, this month's, hell, this year's Pick of the Litter. On the other end of the spectrum is the Runt of the Litter... That (dis)honor goes to Fear Itself: The Home Front #6. The last issue was brutally bad, and I don't expect this issue to be much better than that. And that about wraps things up. With a mind-blowing 28 comics to get through, I really need to try to push these reviews out as quick as humanly possible... But realistically, unless I review FOUR comics every night, there's no way I'll be able to review every comic listed here. I'll try my best, but even I have limitations... If worse comes to worse, and I can't get through all 28 of these new books by next Wednesday, I'll probably clump a bunch of them into a Best of the Rest type post, if only to get SOMETHING about those comics up and posted. Needless to say, I have some work to do! So until next time(which will probably be pretty soon...), X out!

The Random Scan of the Week!I know the feeling Daken...


  1. I find it hilarious that a big day at the LCS for me is about 6+ books haha. Your list is frighteningly overwhelming, but in a good way! Looking forward to your batman #1, nightwing #1, cap #3, cap corps, daredevil and schism.

    -I will be reading your other reviews so please don't convince me to pick anything else up as my wallet is sore already!

  2. This week was utterly insane, Cap, even by my standards! I can't wait for Fear Itself and the DC reboot to end between this month and next, as that should help me get down to a more manageable number of books! Nightwing should be up as early as late tonight, depending on how quickly I get through the first batch of books I want to read. As for the rest? I have NO clue when I'll be able to get to them!

    I'll try... I wouldn't want anybody's wallet to suffer as badly as mine does! :D

  3. O men your are insane!!

    Aniways, I m looking forward for your reviews on all the DC books, but, the most I am waiting to be awesome are Red Hood, Nightwing, and Batman 1.

    And i retook the Schism, I not waiting to be amasing, but a least it would help me to get into the regenesis X series.

  4. 28 comics......X, like I said, you are nuts!! Lol. We're gonna get you some help. We'll go to rehab together lol.

    Buuuut as always I still can't wait to read those reviews. I can't wait for: Batman #1, Catwoman #1, Nightwing #1, Red Hood and the Outlaws #1, Supergirl #1 (I decided to get this), Wonder Woman #1, X-Men: Schism #4. Especially Wonder Woman. I'm about to read that now actually, as a favor for your awesome X-Woman, try and get that up asap. I can't wait!!! lol

    Happy reading!!

  5. Yes I am insane, Alien! All I'm hoping now is that next week I only get like 10 books or something! Half of my food budget this week went towards comic books! :D

    Thanks, Lisha. When I get out of comic book rehab, I'll be expecting to meet you at that gate... With comic books! :P I shall move WW up a few spots in my comic pile. If I can keep up a strong pace, I SHOULD get to it around Friday or Saturday, but there are still a few books I want to read before I get to WW, but I WILL def get that review up post-haste.

  6. "Thanks, Lisha. When I get out of comic book rehab, I'll be expecting to meet you at that gate... With comic books! :P" Lol honest truth, I was thinking that. But we'd both be walking out with JT picking us up with comics in a u-haul truck lol.

    And you're the best. I read it and was like "Holy Shit" so I'm really really really REALLY hoping you like it as much as I did. Or I will be hurt. :( lol
