Missing a week to the Comic-Con madness somehow meant missing a step as this week's comics were just not that good, even with a few revealing personality pieces and the humor of Ultimate Captain Marvel. Seriously.
The Great Sadness takes hold for the holidays as an inexpensive week is overwhelmed by comics that barely manage to whelm, with event comics, commentary tracks and other business taking center stage.
It's a huge week with five comics making the jump from "consider" to "purchase," with big showing from Starbreaker, Ms. Marvel, Hercules, Mark Richards and Star-Lord, and a magical surprise from Brian Michael Bendis.
Before taking a week off, the comics did their thing with great showings from Sunstreaker, Little Badger, Tony Stark, Kyle Baker, Irma Geddon, J.M. DeMatteis, while three DC books stink up the joint.
If you don't so much lose, that's like winning, right? We believe so with "Secret Six," "Deadpool," "Black Lightning," "Agents of Atlas" and more ... as the Buy Pile celebrates six years of service. We're just as surprised as you are.
Put this one in the "lose" column as the Justice Society jams in dumb elements, the Thor Clone's back (is "Clor" better than "Ragnarok?") and Mon-El's in reruns, plus, sadly, much more.
Winning big with five jumps, including a return to form for "X-Factor," making Milestones with "Justice League of America," whimsical good times with Norman Osborn and so much more.
Just barely winning even with six jumps because there were big, big problems from Patsy Walker, "Trinity," "Avengers/Invaders" and Blade's hairdo, plus "Whatver Happened to The Caped Crusader" and more.
Everybody's talkin' 'bout Norman Osborn in a winning week that tries to redeem Tony Stark, smashes Autobot hopes, delivers big surprises, brings back the Agents of Atlas and wins on ambition and quality.
Things go well with psychic spies, Latino heroes, legendary writers, ancient villains, forgotten stories and more, including the tragic end of "Final Crisis," a good look at "Buckaroo Bonzai" and more.
Everything's comes up Osborn in a winning week heavy from Dark Reign-fall, electricity in Suicide Slum, classical stylings from the Shadow Dimension, "Faces of Evil," manning up with Hercules and more.
Things go badly despite three jumps ("Blue Marvel," "Prometheus," "House of M: Civil War") because of Harry Osborn and Shilo Norman getting mixed up and some dry reads dragging down the curve.
A second big winning week in a row for the new year, as bricks get counted, Black Bolt makes a decision, El Diablo tells it like it is, Marvel gets organized, Clock King fascinates and more in this week's THE BUY PILE.
2009 starts with a bang as a surprising eight comics made their way to the promised land on their merits alone, from Ed Brubaker's latest to Jim Shooter and Dwayne McDuffie's team books.
Despite the unused cold gravy of vengeance, the week wins big with gunfire on multiple continents, laughing at a "Brand New Day," a finer future with fists, confusion and more to start off Kwanzaa.
