JSA: All Stars #2

Nation X: X-Factor
New Mutants #9
Siege: Embedded #1
Suicide Squad #67
Superman: World of New Krypton #11
Ultimate Spider-Man #6
Alright, here’s something new for the new year. I’m going to do some forecasting based on the titles alone.
First of all, there aren’t as many comics on this list as I was hoping for. That being said, the first issue of Siege is here, and I’m extremely pumped about it and what it may do to the current Marvel landscape. If Ultimate Spider-Man is ever in my stack, it usually ends up being the best book of the week. I’m betting Siege gives it a run for its money.
I’m getting Suicide Squad because it’s by the Secret Six team, not because I have any love for the Squad. I’m betting it’ll be just as good as a regular Secret Six issue. I’ll tell you what I AM looking forward to, though, with these quirky little cancelled comic continuations. Starman. Robinson back on Starman. Sure, it’s only for an issue, but oh, that’s my favorite series of all time. I may just weep after (or during?) I read it.
I’m assuming that Embedded is the Frontline equivalent for this event. I didn’t much care for the Frontline books during the other events, so I’m not actually planning on liking Embedded, but I will give it a shot.

I hope to never have to put anything in this section. There's very little out there that I'll never pick up again. Usually it'll depend on how crappy I think a writer is. I can deal with crappy art as long as there's a wonderful story to go along with it. But not even crazy-good art can save a horrendous story.
