Skitch Commentary: – Pretty good week for me. Animal Man, Green Arrow, Stormwatch, and Detective Comics for new books. Lots of that list that I pick up a month behind (Action Comics, Hawk and Dove, Batwing, Justice League Intenational, OMAC, Static Shock, Swamp Thing). Ended up putting Huntress on the wait a month list. I enjoy the book, but not enough to keep paying the extra buck.

– Some really cool trades it’s nice to see back in print like Sandman: Brief Lives, Batman No Man’s Land, and soft cover for Brightest Day Vol. 1 (which I reviewed last week).

– Fair is fair, later on in this column I complain about Marvel charging $125 for the X-Statix Omnibus. So I have to complain about Watchmen for $100. I don’t care what kind of extras are in there, it really is not worth spending $100 bucks on.

Grey Commentary: – Amazing Spider-Man is part two of the new and improved Vulture story, which really is a fitting followup to Spider-Island. People still want powers, so Vulture gives them flying suits. I don’t know how you guys feel about the Vulture, but this is a great use for him, and really, Toomes as a guy with a gang of teenage Vultures doing his bidding is so much more badass than an old guy in an ugly suit.

– Avenging Spider-Man #2 should continue the same feel from the first one, with Wells doing a great job with the characters and story, and Joe Mad! making it look awesome. It’s a shame he’s being replaced with Greg Land and not someone dynamic.

– Defenders is spinning out of Fear Itself, and despite Matt Fraction not being my favorite person after Fear Itself, I almost feel like I have to check it out. There’s an interesting roster, and Terry Dodson on art, and really, Fear Itself, Thor, and Iron Man since Fear Itself may have put a bad taste in my mouth concerning Frac, but he deserves another chance.

– Man, I’m going to miss X-23.

– X-Club should be an interesting mini series. Spurrier wrote a one shot for them back during Second Coming that was really entertaining, and I mean, come on, Dr. Nemesis and Madison Jeffries. This will be so awesome.

– X-Factor! Books that Marvel didn’t force to wrap up their stories in favor of coinciding events! Regenesis shouldn’t even effect this book for another two issues, and it’s great.

Skitch Commentary: – I love X-Statix as much as the next guy, but $125 is insane. Who can afford that right now? And if you can, please send me some!

Skitch Commentary: – Been really interested in Voltron again, mostly because I ended up sitting through a Voltron panel at SDCC waiting for the Batman: Arkham City panel. Voltron Force is a really good cartoon, and the new video game is a lot of fun (though not particularly deep). So, I was looking forward to this new Voltron comic series by Dynamite. As I say all the time, 4 dollar cover prices tend to scare me off, but this book is available digitally, so I am checking it out and will review. Love the Alex Ross cover! And Dynamite is even worse than Marvel, DC, and IDW with the alternate covers. Does Voltron need 9 covers? Does Jennifer Blood need 6?
