Welcome to Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews! Here you can find out what we at thought of this past week’s new books in 140 characters or less! Make sure to come back each week to see what we have to say about the latest comics!

Amazing Spider-Man #637 (Marvel)
Grim Hunt ended with a dud. Now bring me this O.M.I.T. and please don’t let it be stupid or sucky. K’thanks.

Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #2 (Marvel)
Andy: Talk about an outside of continuity tale that doesn’t suck! This one’s it.
Jeff: This book makes absolutely no sense…and I LOVE it!

Avengers Academy #2 (Marvel)
Andy: If you passed on this grass get to your dealer and pick up #1 + #2! Quicksilver fans should do so post-haste!

Batgirl #12 (DC)
So can Calculator stay locked away for a long time now…please?
Oracle has a new apprentice and Batgirl made it through the year without dying, sounds like a good year to me.

Batman #701 (DC)
I need to go back and re-read Batman RIP for this one to make sense to me…and I’m too damn lazy to do that.
Arnab: The bridge between Batman: R.I.P. and Final Crisis. Bruce may be just a human, but goes toe to toe with gods on a regular basis.
Aron: I think I have read more informative stuff off the roll of paper towels in the kitchen. What’s up?

Birds of Prey #3 (DC)
Loved the opening hallucination of Penguin. I’ll take more of that any day! …but only if Benes is drawing. What was with the artist swap at the end?
Oracle and Black Canary seem to be in over their heads, while their enemies continue to maintain control.

The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles #1 (BOOM!)
Aron: Interesting. I like it.
Decapitated Dan: While horror comics aren’t scary, the last panel in this one sent chills up my spine. A must read!

Daredevil #508 (Marvel)
Not as great as Shadowland #1, but it’s still pretty great! Love the art in this series too.
Aron: So SHADOWLAND #1 really happened. R.I.P. Bummer. Other than that, this issue was badass.

Daytripper #8 (Vertigo)
Andy: The most emotional issue yet. Damn.

Doctor Solar: Man of the Atom #1 (Dark Horse)
Like…too many words, man. It was alright. DECAPITATED DAN IS IN THE BACK, YO!

Fevre Dream #3 (Avatar)
Decapitated Dan:
We’re taking our time to get there, but I am really enjoying this so far. Very different than what I expected to read.

Invincible Iron Man #28 (Marvel)
Meh. Will something happen already?
Aron: “You think I came down to your nerd hole because I wanted to trade Pokémans?” Other than that, it ain’t grabbin’ me.

Iron Man Noir #4 (Marvel)
Aron: Awesome! Sad to see it end.

Justice League: Generation Lost #5 (DC)
Andy: I’m still really liking this series despite previously not giving a crap about any of the characters. The new art is rockin’ as well.

Mystery Society #2 (IDW)
Aron: Oh, man! This thing is COOKY! In a GOOD way! Not the typical Niles horror, but I’m keeping it.

Orc Stain #4 (Image)
Decapitated Dan:
I get so lost in the pictures that I almost miss how awesome this story is. It’s like my dreams on paper.

Superman #701 (DC)
I never gave 2 shitzu’s about Superman before, but now I’m on board. This is a Superman I can get behind.
The walking dude. Pretty cool.

Sweets: A New Orleans Crime Story (Image)
Andy: It was ok, but it crammed a lot in there for a #1. It will probably read better in trade format.

The Thanos Imperative #2 (Marvel)
Andy: I’m not a huge Marvel Cosmic guy, but this issue made me poop my pants…a few times.
Aron: What the hell? And Silver Surfer looked like a dork. Had to make sure it wasn’t the artist from “In Thy Name”.

Titans #25 (DC)
Andy: I want to like this book, but it’s not grabbing me. Why the f would these characters ally themselves with Slade for no reason?

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #12 (Marvel)
Man, if I were in high school again I’d be doing a lot more than kissing the girls. That’s all I have to say.
Decapitated Dan: This arc is shaping up to be awesome!!! I am looking so forward to the Iceman/Torch vs. Mock Spider-man coming up.

Uncanny X-Men: The Heroic Age #1 (Marvel)
Andy: This was actually really well done. Don’t let the shittiness of Nation X dissuade you from checking it out.
Arnab: Hope makes a friend, Beast gets dropped by a little girl, and Scott receives a medal form the President. Just another day in the life of the X-Men.
Decapitated Dan: By far some of the worst art I have seen in a while from Marvel that’s how we draw Beast now? AND KEEP MOLLY OUT THE X-BOOKS!!!!
Jeff: The reason SWORD was canceled was because of Steve Sanders’ rendition of Beast, so what do they do, get him to draw him in this! Wasteful.

The Unwritten #15 (Vertigo)
Andy: People who have stuck this series out will enjoy the payoff in this issue. Lots of stuff happens and it’s for the better.

X-Force: Sex & Violence #1 (Marvel)
Andy: If the stunning art alone doesn’t sell you, the solid story surrounding it should.
Arnab: Domino is on the run, it’s a good thing she’s got Wolverine looking out for her.
Jeff: I never really liked Domino much, but this issue made me really like her. Dell’Otto’s art is gorgeous!

X-Men Origins: Deadpool (Marvel)
Knock Knock. Who’s there? A great one shot Deadpool book!
Arnab: Pretty cool take on an origin story. Deadpool’s always been a little crazy, now we know why.

X-Men: Second Coming #2 (Marvel)
So f-ing awesome. On every level. Can’t wait to read what comes next.
Multiple stories with major impacts. New X-Force. Five Lights.
Aron: This event cost a lot of money and two X-Men. I hope it was worth it. It sure doesn’t seem like it. R.I.P. Nightcrawler.
Jeff: A true epilogue. A shame they did it in four parts with different creative teams.

X-Men Second Coming Revelations: Hellbound #3 (Marvel)
Andy: Soooooooo we needed 3 issues for Pixie  to figure out she doesn’t hate Illyana? Jeez.
Arnab: Gambit’s got hell at his beck and call. Pixie decides she’d rather be an X-man than whole.
Jeff: Cannonball is such a badass and this time he proves it to Death Gambit.
