ACTION COMICS #847
GREEN LANTERN #18
FANTASTIC FOUR #544
ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #40
ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #107
ULTIMATE X-MEN #80
We have another good sized shipment of new comic books headed to the Bunker this week. I should be able to post reviews for most of these issues.
Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? That is a really tough choice! All four titled from DC this week are excellent. 52 is steaming toward WW III. Action Comics is insanely good. Johns and Donner have done an amazing job on this title. Green Lantern has been a fantastic read. And Batman should be much better with Morrison back at the helm as writer.
I’m going to have to go with Action Comics #847. We have Kryptonians raining from the sky, Superman trapped in the Phantom Zone and Zod poised to reclaim his son from Lois. There is no doubt that Action Comics #847 should be an excellent read.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? None. Like I said before, all of these titles are strong reads.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Ultimate Spider-Man #107. Bendis is money in the bank on this title. It is incredible what Bendis has accomplished on this title.
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be Fantastic Four #544. First, you can’t have the Fantastic Four with out Reed, Susan, Johnny and Ben all together. Second, Black Panther and Storm were extremely questionable replacements for Reed and Susan.
I’ll try my best to start posting reviews as soon as possible. I hope everyone enjoys their new comic books for this week.

There’s always been a kind of duality in the FF roster: the fact that the original four are central to the whole thing versus the need to occasionally shake things up. Obviously the lineup will reset at some point, but I don’t see a problem with some fill-ins every so often; Byrne put She-Hulk on for a good while of his classic run, and even Lee had Crystal sub for Invisible Girl back in the 60s. Also, according to McDuffie, Sue and Reed will be in every issue, or close to it.
I see your point about the original FF roster, and your point about the Black Panther/Storm relationship, which still feels like it’s being forced down the collective readers’ throats. That said, I’d be interested to what you think about this issue. McDuffie’s already succumbed a bit to the writer’s temptation of writing in their favorite characters, but honestly, even with Storm and Black Panther, this was the first time I’ve really enjoyed an issue of Fantastic Four since Waid was writing.
