Skitch Commentary – If you haven’t read them yet DC Comics Presents The Dark is a must buy! ANIMAL MAN #1, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1, I, VAMPIRE #1 and SWAMP THING #1! For two bucks an issue! Easily four of DC’s best series. This actually reminds me of Crossgen’s Forge and Edge trades where evert series was traded. I definitely hope they do more of these!

– Speaking of Animal Man, issue 5 is out this week, which I will likely be reviewing. Pretty light week for me, with Swamp Thing, Stormwatch, and Green Arrow.

Grey Commentary – Avengers Academy just keeps getting better and better, now with the future Reptil plot going, and X-23 on the roster, and hell, the other new members too, Gage hasn’t lost that pacing and tone that made the book so awesome for the first year and a half.

– Avengers Annual is the second part of the New Avengers Annual from, I want to say August, with Wonder Man and his Revengers attacking Avengers Tower…which was destroyed in Fear Itself, and most likely will be destroyed here, and I won’t be buying it.

– Avengers X-Sanction….otherwise known as “Hey, remember the 90’s?”. The first issue was a blast of nostalgia that went a long way, some of the best work I’ve seen out of Loeb in years. It’s fun, it’s exciting, hell, it’s well written Cable!

– The first issue of Defenders really surprised me, as I liked it far more than I had expected to. This is currently the only Fraction book I’m even looking at after Fear Itself, and really, it’s good. Entertaining Dr. Strange.

– Speaking of Fear Itself, if you missed it and want to bash your head in with a hammer, you can buy the hardcover!

– Uncanny X-Force’s .1 issue is the direct lead in to the new AoA series, also, consistently one of the best books Marvel puts out. Be there.

– Didn’t I just buy Uncanny X-Men last week? Gillen is hitting a home run, scope it if you’re not. X-Men vs Celestials was awesome.

– Brian Wood makes his return to Marvel with the Wolverine/Kid Omega mini. This should be awesome. I hope this will be awesome.

– X-23 is being listed as the final issue, but I know there’s another one hitting in March. Stupid Marvel, you PROMOTE this book, not cancel it!

Skitch Commentary – Bloodties Hardcover….uhm….why? This story was all right, but overshadowed by Fatal Attractions which happened around the same time. I know that Avengers/X-Men is supposed to be big and Marvel loves to cash in, but this story really doesn’t need a Hardcover.
