Here’s a recap of my pickups for this week: Birds of Prey #10, Glory #27, and Astonishing X-Men #51 . Remember, my rating does not necessarily reflect the comic’s quality (although that is taken into consideration) but rather it’s a gauge of my overall interest in the story being told.
5 = Excellent thus far, and will definitely pick up the next issue if/when available.
4 = Pretty good, the series has got my complete interest. Recommend staying with this series.
3 = If I see the next issue on shelves, I might give it thumb-through. I’m Mildly interested.
2 = Has some good points but I didn’t find the story too interesting/I feel nothing for the characters.
1 = I wasted my money!
0 = I will BURN every copy I find!!!
Also, I am always careful to avoid spoilers as much as possible.
So let’s get to it!

Plenty of action in this issue, but not much else. Here the Birds of Prey are deep in the Amazon, fighting plant monsters, as they continue their quest to rejuvenate their fallen comrade, Poison Ivy.

I know last week I implied that I wouldn’t be doing a “PawPrints” for this week, because it seemed like there wouldn’t be anything major that’d interest me on shelves. Oh sure, there’s AvX VS #1… a tie-in to Avengers vs X-men, which I couldn’t care less about – I might grab it in trade paperback when it wraps up though.
However, I had some time to kill before meeting with friends at the pub after work, so I popped into my local comic store. I’m very happy I decided to drop by, as I came out with some really great reads. Again, as I said in my previous post, my rating doesn’t necessarily reflect the quality of the particular issue (although that is definitely taken into consideration) but rather my desire to continue reading and supporting the particular series.
