10 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT NOVEMBER ’10 COMICS (and a couple I’m not so crazy about).

New Avengers #6
by KC Carlson

Well, Christmas is over! Hope you had a great holiday season!

Of course, in the real world, the holidays are still several months away! But in the wacky world of comic book advance ordering, pretty much all of the industry’s major wares have already been offered up. Since the last three months have been SO packed with goodness, this month’s offerings pale a bit in comparison. Still, there’s plenty of great stuff if you dig around a bit, so here are my picks, along with a bit of commentary here and there since I haven’t had much chance to talk about current comics lately. On to it…


Fifth Degree: Marvel Previews #81

Young Avengers Ultimate Collection

by Josh Crawley

Not to brag, but I have so many awesome friends! Chadi got me a sketch card from Jordan Gunderson of Witchblade-bearer Sara Pezzini (a nice companion piece to the 11 by 14 he did for me a couple years ago). Our customers (Brian, Katie & Eric, Emily, and many more) brought so much food to my co-workers on Free Comic Book Day that I still got to eat some today.

Oh, and my amazing friends Andy & Kristy: it was a beautiful wedding and I had so much fun with friends new & old; thank you. I love you two!

Now that that’s been said, it’s time for me to get back to work! This week: Marvel Previews #81!
