Weekly Purchases

A light week for books.  Reviews will be posted throughout the week.

Monthly Comics

Dark Avengers #3 – The Dark Avengers continue to fight Le Fey and try to save Dr. Doom, Osborn gives the Sentry some psychiatry lessons (which is pure irony) and Osborn plugs 5 Guys burgers, which is awesome.  5 Guys is the best burgers out there, and The Green Goblin knows it.

Deadpool: Games of Death – An interesting story, doesn’t stand up to the current ongoing series, and hearkens back to the earlier series (that’s not a good thing).

G.I. Joe: Cobra #1 – There’s three different series being published by IDW in the G.I. Joe universe.  This title stands out as the best following an undercover Joe.  Out of all three this is the only one that makes me want to pick up the second issue.

Punisher #3 – I’m loving this series so far.  The Hood is definitely the villain the Punisher needed.

X-Factor #41 – Again the series writer Peter David has asked to not divulge any spoilers.  I’m sticking to that and just saying another fantastic issue.

Uncanny X-Men #507 – Concerns are raised by the Mayor of San Francisco as to what exactly Cyclops’ plan is, and an old villain returns.

Wolverine #71 – Logan and Hawkeye reach New Babylon.

X-Force #13 – Wow, what a hell of an issue.  Save one life or save a species?  That question is asked and answered here.

X-Men: Legacy #222 – Professor X, Gambit, and some others deal with a danger room in the Australian outback.  Not sure I’ve liked these last issues.

Graphic Novels

X-Men: Deadly Genesis – Ed Brubaker takes on the X-Men.  I love his writing for so many other series I thought I’d give this a shot.  I’ve never seen the man do wrong.
