This week in the life of comics 4/15/11

Salutations everyone! I regret to inform you that I have lost another of my superhero themed pint glasses this week. One of my cats, Brooklyn, knocked over our Wonder Woman glass with his bulbous behind, causing it to shatter on the floor. He showed no remorse for his actions. My fiancé, being a huge Wonder Woman fan, was devastated.

The Red Sox continue to bludgeon my heart with a rusty crowbar, but I won't abandon them. I've been through worse times with late 90's Spider-Man titles. I can handle this nonsense. Thankfully the Sea Dogs have been faring well, so I can relax a little bit.

As for comics, I've had a hard time deciding what my favorite book was. It's come down to Carnage #4 and Uncanny X-Force #7, and I think I'm just going to call it a tie. Both were gorgeous, well written, and left me insanely satisfied. You should be reading both of these titles, if you're not already.

Flash #10 was the big issue before Flashpoint begins, but I was a little underwhelmed by it. I'm not too sure what to think about Flashpoint period. I know it's supposed to be a big event, but it doesn't feel like it. That's me anyways, I'm sure there are some Flash fans excited about it. I just have a very wait-and-see attitude about the story.

Spidey was fun this week. I especially enjoyed Sue Storm imprisoning a mime in an actual invisible box. I didn't care for the opening scene with the new costume though. There's no need to re-write a scene that already occurred, and was written better, in FF #1.

Other books that were cool are Daken, Batman and Robin, and Birds of Prey. Each provided me with copious amounts of joy.

Also, what's happening in Age of X is enough to give me a panic attack. It's insane!

I also managed to get 27,555,000 on the new pinball machine here, Scared Stiff. Deal with that!

Until next time everyone!
