Skitch Commentary – Because of New 52, it’s easy to miss out on some of the other books DC puts out, but this week Young Justice and THUNDER Agents comes out, both series that I love! And Tiny Titans seems like a fun book, though I’ve never read it.

– Fables is another non-new 52 book I really used to love back in the day. I definitely want to catch up with that book eventually. Man, too many comics, no where near enough money.

– Third week is always expensive for me with Batman, Justice League, Blue Beetle, and DC Universe Presents as books I buy as soon as they come out (not to mention YJ and Thunder Agents). It’s a shame that so many good books come out and that DC still is charging full price for digital releases. I would definitely read Nightwing day of release otherwise, right now I have to wait a month. BOO!

– I am always amazed by how many Batman books DC puts out. On top of him appearing in SIX relaunch titles, we also have Batman Odyssey and a Batman Inc one shot this week. I know that Bats is a cash cow, but really, that is just getting excessive. Especially since I can safely guarantee none of them will be anywhere near as awesome as Synder’s run on Batman…which also comes out this week!

Grey Commentary – Amazing Spider-Man is finally back where it should have always been as one of Marvel’s premier titles. The Vulture has been made into a bad ass for the first time since….jeez, I don’t even know. Oh, and Peter’s two ex’s both know he’s Spider-Man and are set to have a talk this issue. Talk about Parker luck!

– Daredevil is probably the best new series of 2011 at Marvel, and if you haven’t read it yet…what are you waiting for?! MARK WAID! Light hearted swashbuckling Daredevil!

– Fantastic Four #601….JOHNNY’S BACK!

– New Mutants features Blink and a metal band that bring massive destruction. Sound awesome yet?

– Uncanny X-Force ships twice in two weeks as the new status quo debuts this week. AoA Nightcrawler in the house!

– Wolverine and the X-Men should be continuing the sheer insanity of the new school being built on a Krakoa with awesome Bachalo art.

– X-23 nears its finale, but first we have to find out if she can save Val and Franklin Richards!

Skitch Commentary – I actually really want to read Daredevil. It’s Waid!!! But not available digitally. What’s up with that, Marvel? There seems to be no rhyme or reason with their digital release schedule.
