First comic haul in awhile. Much more expensive than if I just caught up with these series via ebay, but I just chalk up the extra cost to enjoying the banter of the people in the comic shop. And honestly, unless you’re getting a whole run of something that’s hard to find (*cough*, New X-Men, *cough*) the feeling of getting comics in he mail has got to be pretty meh.
Anyway, I wanted to come up to date with these series (Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine and the X-Men) prior to Marvel Now! but I did not have sufficient munnies to do this in time. I still have AvX to look forward to in both series, as well as the crossover stories themselves, and probably New Avengers. And, once Marvel Now! hits (in less than 2 weeks !@#$#@%*@#$) you know I’m getting those J. Scott Campbell connecting covers, and I’ll probably end up reading all three series (Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, and All-New X-Men).
So yeah. I has reading to do.
Oh yeah, and the issue #0’s are because fuck you.
But seriously, I just wanted a peek at some New 52 stuff and, let’s face it, that Flash cover is sex. I originally got into comics because of the New 52, but ended up enjoying my foray into Marvel much more because, quite frankly, the world was presented much… well, better, even in spite of the fact that I literally had no idea what the fuck was going on when I started reading at Schism.
So yeah. Giving DC another chance briefly. I loves me some Batman and I’m interested in getting to know Mr. Flash but, I don’t know man, the X-Bros just all have my heart right now.
