This week is incredibly small. I cannot remember the last time I was getting so few comic books on a Wednesday. And I am not really all that excited to read any of these issues.

Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? That would be Green Lantern #39. This issue is going to focus on the Orange Lantern Corps and I am interested in learning more about them. Johns has been money on Green Lantern as of late and I see no reason for that to stop with this issue.

Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? The easy choice would be to select Trinity #45. However, I am going to go with Battle for the Cowl #2. I have a bad feeling that we are in store for a predictable and pedestrian read with this issue.

Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? That would be Wolverine: Weapon X #1. I know that Wolverine is absolutely the last character that needs another comic book. And normally I would be ripping this move by Marvel to give us yet another Wolverine comic books. After all, Logan is possibly the most over-exposed character in comic books.

However, the fact is that I really dig Jason Aaron’s work. And I read an interview with Aaron where he said he wanted to make Wolverine: Weapon X new reader friendly and not continuity heavy. And given all the garbage that Marvel has done with Wolverine’s continuity over on Wolverine and Wolverine: Origins I am looking forward to a Wolverine title that does not bother itself with Logan’s ridiculous continuity. Hopefully, Aaron will be able to deliver some exciting kick-ass action stories in a straight forward fashion and make Logan cool once again.

Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? None. I am not getting much from Marvel this week and both titles should be good reads.

  1. I’m most looking forward to see what Jeff Parker will do with the “Exiles” relaunch. Claremont, long since parted with his talent (he’s a poster child for artists who should have called it a day a while ago; now all he’s doing is demolishing the considerable cred he earned with his incredible early work), drove that book into the ground, but Parker’s stuff looks great.

  2. How can you not be looking forward to GL? ORANGE LANTERNS! Philip Tan! (Have you seen his sketches on Newsarama?)

    And I second you should read Exiles, but only because I am afraid to buy it after the Claremont fiasco and want to know if its good.
