Weekly Treats -Thursday 5th January

Hello everybody 
 Together let us trample the freshly fallen year and shake the soggy disappointment of belated deliveries asunder for this is New Comic Day Eve a precious time to contemplate purchases to come...
So then... 
If only Marvel could unofficially brand the shipping weeks like the reborn DC...
Marvel are celebrating the fledgeling January with the second round of Avengers X-Sanction!
The Cable Captan America collision cascades into THE BIG EVENT OF 2012 AVENGERS VS X-MEN
so don't be left out.
  Dragging its knuckles along the shelves this week is the inaugural edition of  the Avengers Annual featuring Beast buddy Simon Williams going doolally  with Bendis providing his usual ventriloquism.
Matt 'parrying' Fraction serves up second helping's of the Defenders and our House of Ideas spotlight quartet is topped off with the second title for Wolverine and the X-Men Alpha Omega by the versatile Brian Wood.
This week see's master Criminal's  Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips' Fatale from Image.
“The overwhelming positive response to FATALE from retailers and fans has been a bit shocking, but a great way to start the new year,” said Brubaker. “Keep it up, and we’ll keep putting out the best book we can.”
FATALE tells the story of a reporter in 2012 who stumbles on a secret that leads him down the darkest path imaginable… to a seductive woman who’s been on the run since 1935, a mobster who may be an immortal demon monster, and the stories of all the doomed men who’ve been caught in their decades-long struggle. FATALE blends noir and horror to tell a riveting epic unlike anything readers have ever seen before.
By the way we have piles of it coming in so don't let bully boy Brubaker  frighten you.
Forgetting to take his shoes off at the door is Mudman #2 from always reliable Paul (St Swithin's Day) Grist
Issue one is still available for all you late sleepers.
Dark Horse unleashes the Goon, Boom offer up more Betrayal on The Planet of the Apes and The Boys march once more to their brutal tune.
Lots more delicacies but why spoil it here?
Pop in tomorrow but PLEASE not until 1PM-these comics need a jolly good counting before presenting themselves for your approval.
On the New Book front its Grant Morrison's going all soft on us with Seven Soldiers Vol 1 soft cover and Batman:The Return of Bruce Wayne soft cover.
David Finch has let his Batman out the cave with The Dark Knight Golden Dawn hardcover.
