Re: OFFICIAL INDEX TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #1 - are you sure that's this week? Marvel's website has it shipping January 7:

http://www.marvel.com/catalog/?id=10627

Can't wait for it, though. Not counting that one, this week is an 11 for me. Big week.

AVENGERS: INITIATIVE #20
AVENGERS/INVADERS #7 (OF 12)
CAPTAIN AMERICA #45
FANTASTIC FOUR #562
GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #8
INCREDIBLE HERCULES #124
PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL #26
WAR MACHINE #1
X-FORCE #10
INCOGNITO #1
KICK ASS #5

I'm close to dropping Incredible Herc though. It's starting to feel like a cheesy sitcom - "the muscle-bound god and the brainy nerd form a 21st century odd couple - hilarity and hijinks ensue!" Meh.

There's something very bizarre with this week's shipping list : I see at least half a dozen titles originally solicited for Jan 7th (while the others were in the December solicits).

My list of these oddities :
MARVEL SPOTLIGHT: DARK REIGN
WOLVERINE: SWITCHBACK
MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD: HERO UP!
WOLVERINE/POWER PACK #3 (OF 4)
X-MEN NOIR #2 (OF 4)
OFFICIAL INDEX TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #1
(there may be others in titles I don't track.)

On the other hand, I don't see either NEW EXILES ANNUAL #1, MARVELS: EYE OF THE CAMERA #2, X-MEN: WORLDS APART #3, WHAT IF? SECRET WARS or MARVEL ADVENTURES: FANTASTIC FOUR #43.

This may just be some random rescheduling craziness, but I don't put much weight on this preliminary shipping list.

And anyway : FOUR Wolverine books the same week ? This is madness...

I plan to pick up nine of the titles listed, plus the Index. I'm picking up Previews that day, too, so my January call for analyses will be a few days late.
