X-FACTOR: The genius that is Mr. Peter David delivers one of the most hilarious comic books ever. This time, it's about a ragtag team of detectives who are led by Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man. Everything about this comic book is interesting. Layla Miller (she knows everything), Rictor (bisexual depowered mutant), Monet and Siryn (who both slept with Jamie's dupe) and even Quicksilver (the semi-bad guy) all adds to the already colorful world of X-factor. To quote Rictor, X-Factor puts the fun in dysfunctional.

PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL: This is first a tie-in to Civil War. I'm still on the fence with this one, but it looks like it's a fun read. Frank Castle rejoins the Marvel Universe in this one, and his target, the lowlife scumbags of New York.

THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST: It's got Ed Brubaker's name attached to it, so naturally this will be a great read. The first issue looked great. The type of art for this kind of comic book I'm finally warming up to. If you were to translate it into a movie, this would be a very nice looking independent film.

CRIMINAL: By now, you'd notice that I'm having a man-crush on Ed Brubaker... More specifically his works. In this one, he shies away from the capes and masks and just focuses on thieving. It's like Ocean's Eleven, The Italian, and every kind of caper film rolled into one. It's not very funny, but definitely it's very interesting. Much more interesting than let's say... Batman. At least that's my opinion.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: Looks like I'll be sticking with this title even after the whole Civil War thing is over. Spider-man's public unmasking has opened some huge story possibilities for our favorite neighborhood wall-crawler. Rumors are, that they are going to kill his wife Mary Jane. I don't have a clue as to the truth on the matter, but hopefully it would be someone else.

You just can't stop, right? When I finally got back to comics last April, I only had 4 comics in my pull list. Now I got like 16.
