The first of the month used to mean that rent was due, bills needed to be paid, and you were one month older. Now the first of the month means a double shot of Animal Man and Swamp Thing fresh off the ramifications of this week's Animal Man Annual, a tag team of alternate realities with Earth 2 and World's Finest, and Darwyn Cooke's return to monthly work on Minutemen. Marvel brings back Avengers vs. X-Men after an extra week off for the start of Act 2 and it brings along Amazing Spider-man in Motion variants with it. Then there's Hickman's Secret, Grist's Mud Man and Creator Owned Heroes from people that own their own books.
It's a good time to be into comics.
