So last year I did a post I really enjoyed, about my 12 Birthday Wishes, since my She Has No Head! column fell on my birthdate.

While recording 3 Chicks this week, Sue asked if I was doing it again, and I said no.  I didn’t do it again because A) my column didn’t fall on my exact birthday and B) it was a lot of work, and I was tired.  But in looking at the post again I realized that I ALSO didn’t do it because of secret reason C) which is that it was “too depressing”  – i.e. short of Stumptown #4 coming out and me buying myself some things, pretty much NONE of my birthday wishes came true.  I guess you could make an argument that #11 sort of came true since Marvel did the excellent Strange Tales this past year, but short of that, all my awesome wishes remain painfully unfulfilled.  So sad.  Head on over to the original post to check those awesome unfulfilled wishes out.

“The X-Team, currently a bizarre mix of Professor Xavier, Magneto, Rogue, Gambit, Legion, and Frenzy continues to hunt down Legion’s escaped personas which are wreaking havoc wherever they go. Our heroes spend most of their time fighting Chain, a persona that can turn everyone he touches into a duplicate of himself, and who has turned a large part of London into himself by the time the X-Men arrive. Also on the loose is Susan in Sunshine, who is dispatched with clever somewhat mean-spirited tactics by Frenzy. The X-Men defeat both personas and Legion is able to re-absorb them with relative ease — although anyone actually at ease with that whole “digital watch that holds powerful personas in check” is insane — but Styx remains on the loose and may in fact be hunting the X-Men…”

““Secret Avengers” #14 bounces back in time between the life of Brunhilde and the origin of Valkyrie, to one of the many battlefields of “Fear Itself,” as a handful of soldiers march behind Valkyrie to their likely deaths. The story begins with a pair of soldiers avoiding preparing for a battle related to “Fear Itself” and then draws comparisons between their day and Brunhilde’s journey from princess to Odin’s Valkyrie…”

““Gates of Gotham” #2 presents a dense and layered mystery that continues to unravel itself as we explore Gotham’s creation while the modern day Bat-family tries to prevent its destruction. “Gates of Gotham” presents a detailed and fascinating look at the most famous fictional city in comics, and one full of mysteries just waiting to be discovered…”

An easy win this week for this cover by Dustin Nguyen for Gates of Gotham #2. Gorgeous!

Bonus points for Cass Cain being on the next Gates of Gotham Nguyen cover (below).  I hate that silly cape – I mean, capes are silly anyway, but look awesome so we let it go – so when a cape is both extra silly and looks like crap…what’s the point? -  anyway, everything else about this cover is awesome:

This week on She Has No Head! I take a swing at my own DC 52 line up.  It was fun, but exhausting…take a look!

Here are the “rules“.

And if you’d like to see the full September 2011 Marvel solicits head over to CBR.

Your bi-monthly installment of DRUNK COVER SOLICITS IN THREE SENTENCES OR LESS!

This month we’re STILL covered in all sorts of Fear Itself Spooge…IT WILL NEVER END!!!!  You know what I’m afraid of at this point “Fear Itself” crossover?  The words FEAR ITSELF that’s what I’m afraid of.

*Kelly takes time out to weep openly*

It should be noted that after doing 60+ DC solicits, drinking an entire bottle of Veuve, jamming out to The Go! Team for a minute, and eating some chocolate, I am VERY CRAZY DRUNK.

Here goes!

ALL WINNERS SQUAD BAND OF HEROES 4.  I don’t know the character in the upper left but his positioning is HILARIOUS.

ALPHA FLIGHT 4.  I hope it wasn’t deliberate and I’m sure it’s the drink making me unreasonable…but while most of these characters look dead or just painfully unconscious, Aurora’s Snowbird’s position and expression makes it look like she’s taking it from behind against her will.  It’s makes me…uncomfortable.
