New Comics Wednesday (12/14/11)

Before I get to this week’s list of comics that I’m buying, I have to amend my planned podcast schedule. As you no doubt recall from LBR podcast episode 16 ;), I had planned to do two more episodes before the year’s end, but it looks like work and the holiday season will prevent that from happening. I may release one more episode soon, and then it will be after the new year starts before any more new podcasts are released (that is, unless something drastic changes schedule-wise). In the meantime, as you take time to reflect, please enjoy over 260 blog posts (135 from this year!) and 16 podcasts from yours truly–merry holidays!

Didja hear about the next big Marvel event, Avengers vs X-Men (AvX), coming in April? My gut reaction to this new event was ugh, especially since it’s another biweekly, 12 issue series (like the current Fear Itself: Fearless, which I am not reading). However, I haven’t read any X-Men comics since Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men (nor any before that since about 1987) and am curious how the X-Men are doing since that Schism thing that I didn’t read. So, yes, I am curious, plus, I feel like I should check it out to review here, though I am having a hard time justifying the cost involved. I guess I’ll pick up the zero issue come March.

Finally, Marvel is publishing their Holiday Special today. I’ve purchased a few of DC’s holiday books, but I’ve never seen a Marvel one, so I may have to pick that up next time I’m in the shop.
