Pip's Pick Up's - 1/5/2011

Still catching up from the past two weeks. Here's what I picked up today:

Deadpool #30
Detective Comics #872
Generation Hope #3
X-Factor #213

I also picked up some back issues of X-Factor, #208 and #209. I kept hearing what a good series X-Factor is. Well, after reading #209, I'm sold. The disfunctionality of this team is hilarious. Highlights for me included Madrox talking about how he envies Cyclops and the military precision of the X-men after Longshot and Layla disappear and when they call to say they've found him at the craps tables at Caesar's (what would you do if you had Longshot's abilities), Guido is looking for them in a strip club. Also, does anyone else think that Jane Foster looks a little like Natalie Portman in this issue? I don't read Thor so I couldn't pick Jane Foster out of a crowd, but when I saw her first panel in this book I thought it was Portman.

  1. I'm assuming that would be in part to her connection in the upcoming Thor movie. Perhaps they making sure the fans pick up on it.
