Smile Pile 12.10.08

secret-six-4In the previous issue, Secret Six #3, our favorite villains somehow got their hands on a “Get out of hell free” card made by the devil himself!  This issue fills us in on exactly how a team of baddies reacts to a revelation like that, not to mention a whole cadre of other evildoers who are after them and the prized artifact!

Also out this week:

ACTION COMICS #872
DETECTIVE COMICS #851
FINAL CRISIS #5 (OF 7)
TITANS #8
INVINCIBLE #56
WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ #1
ASTONISHING X-MEN GHOST BOXES #2

Didn’t we tell ya it’d be a DC week?

batman_681

Batman #680 seems to have ended with us finding out who the black glove really is and the caped crusader falling into the apparently conniving clutches of one Jezebel Jet. Batman #681 comes out this week and concludes the R.I.P. storyline. I have no idea what to expect from EJ and Alex, but I will say those two better not fucking spoil! — John

Also coming out this week:

UMBRELLA ACADEMY DALLAS #1
BLUE BEETLE #33
FERRYMAN #3 (OF 5)

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #128

dpool004_cov

Deadpool #3 ended with Wade giving Nick Fury the old switcheroo involving some apparently vital Skrull data.  Who did he give it all to?  Why, only the most trustworthy civilian in the Marvel U, Norman Osborne! Duh! D’oh!

Also out this week:

ROBIN #180 (last issue?)
TERRA #2 (OF 4) (BOOBIES!)
X-FILES #1 (OF 6)
FANTASTIC FOUR #561
UNCANNY X-MEN #504
YETI VS VAMPIRE #1  (really.)

wolv069_cov_colI am loving the Old Man Logan storyline by Millar and McNiven, so I can’t wait for Wolverine #69 to hit the stand this week.  The last issue revealed the intentions of Hawkeye’s daughter/Rosario Dawson, so let’s see what Wolverine/Samurai X/Gandhi decides to do about it!!!

Not a big week for Marvel as far as I can tell, but here’s what else I can’t wait to grab this week:

CLEANERS #1 (OF 4)
ACTION COMICS #871
BATMAN CACOPHONY #1 (OF 3)
DETECTIVE COMICS #850
TITANS #7

What are you guys looking forward to?

I honestly don’t know anyone who isn’t enjoying the current Thor run, and I have in fact never been a fan of the guy. Stracszynski and Coipel, what a team. Thor #11 comes out this week and I absolutely cannot wait.

Also out this week:

JOKER Hardcover
FERRYMAN #2
TRINITY #22
SUPERMAN BATMAN #53
MARVEL 1985 #6 (OF 6)

Let us know what you guys are looking forward to. It’s a relatively tame week, so we might pick up some books you want reviewed.
