Hey there X-Maniacs, it's Wednesday, which means it's time for me to bust out my weekly “New Comic Day” post!!! Normally this is the point where I'd happily begin listing off all of the new books I picked up at the comic book shop today... Unfortunately for me, I only wound up picking up a measly FIVE new comics! Yes, that's right, I only picked up 5 new comics today... The rest of my comics from this week are subscription books, so I have a good week to wait on them. So needless to say, I was feeling like... well, less than a comic fanatic, so I wound up picking up a few back issues and a trade as well at the comic shop today. Hey, unless I spend at least $30 a week on comics I go into a funk! First off, the back issues. I managed to grab Flash #113-118, Captain America Annual #8(featuring Wolverine!)and the Kick-Ass hardcover. And now for the new books. Captain America: Patriot #2, Avengers Prime #3, Teen Titans #87, Detective Comics #869 & X-Men vs Vampires #1(yes, that's the actual title).
So yeah, a depressingly small pull today, but maybe in the long run, that's for the best... You see, my chum Kello alerted me to a huge sale over at Things From Another World. Btw, I think the sale still going on until Friday just so you know... Anywho, late Sunday night I wound up buying a mind boggling 19(!!)trades from that place. And the crazy thing is that I barely spent over $100 to get them all! I mean, that's an AWESOME sale if I do say so myself. While I'm talking about that particular comic order, I might as well fill you guys in on exactly what I brought.. Avengers: Kang- Time and Time Again, Infinity Crusade, Iron Man: Legacy of Doom, Marvel: 1985, Superman: Birthright, Batgirl: Destruction's Daughter, Batman: Scarecrow Tales, Batman: Harvest Breed, Penance: Relentless, Spectacular Spider-Man: The Final Curtain, Squadron Supreme: The Pre War Years, Superman: End of the Century, Supreme Power: Contact, Supreme Power: Powers & Principles, Supreme Power: Nighthawk, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up: Ultimate Collection, What If? Classic Vol. 2, Wolverine: Logan and finally, Zombie... Whew! That's a LOT of trades!
Hmm, what else can I talk about here... I beat Fallout 3 earlier today, and I'm currently playing through the third expansion which allows you to continue the story even after the game ends. I can see myself picking up all of the expansions over the weekend... That game is THAT awesome! Once I'm done going through the expansions I plan on starting the game over again so I can play as the most wicked villain imaginable. Lookout Capital Wasteland, here comes EVIL X! BWA-HAHAHAHAH!!! Besides that I'm almost finished with my EPIC review for the Superman: Secret Origin mini-series that wrapped up not so long ago. I've finished reviewing it up to the forth issue, so hopefully I'll be able finish reviewing the last two issues and get the post up by the weekend. And I guess that'll have to do it for me, as I think I've rambled quite enough for one night. As always, any comments are appreciated and will be responded to... Probably! Until next time, X out.
