Comic of the Week: March 28, 2012

I figured to avoid confusion I would start labeling these as the day the comics come out and not the day I post these. That said, comic time!

Comics Round-Up:

AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #0 - 3/5 - I'm assuming this event will be interesting, but this "prologue" was nothing special. The Scarlet Witch part was interesting but I didn't really see how it played into any of the AvX storyline. As for the Hope part, I felt like I had read half of it already due to the previews in the back of the past couple months' comics. Either way, I'm excited to pick up the first issue.

AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #5 - 4/5 - I really liked how this issue felt very Spidey-ish but was also a great tribute to Joe Simon and Cap. I'm fine with them taking one issue of this amazing series to dedicate to a comic icon.

ASTONISHING X-MEN #48 - 4/5 - I started picking up this series because of Marjorie Liu and after the first issue, I'm hooked. I can't wait to read more about all of these characters. Especially Iceman.

BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #7 - 3/5 - This series should start improving pretty soon. New writers coming in soon so this could be the turnaround this series needs. Yet another meh issue.

UNCANNY X-MEN #9 - 4/5 - This could be the last team-up between Avengers and X-Men for a while and so far, I'm enjoying it!


Comic of the Week:

GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #7 - 5/5 - The Lantern series are getting pretty amazing! Between this fun ride with all the Lanterns and the Hal/Sinestro Green Lantern series, I'm loving me some Lanterns! Can't wait to see these different Corps start growing on each other as they already started in this issue.
