We have a total of 18 titles headed to the Bunker today. This week is evenly split between DC and Marvel.
Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? We have several interesting titles headed our way from DC this week. I am interested in Green Lantern #36. Green Lantern should be the “must read” DC title this year as The Blackest Night event gets cranked up.
I am curious to see how Johns ends his seemingly never ending Kingdom Come/Gog story arc in Justice Society of America #22. After such a long build-up it is going to be tough for Johns to deliver a satisfying ending.
In the end, I had to go with Superman #683 as the DC comic book that I am most looking forward to reading. The New Krypton story arc is rapidly approaching its conclusion and I am curious to see what new twists and turns Johns and Robinson have in store for us.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? I am not that excited to read Justice League of America #28. This title continues to showcase characters outside of this title rather than focusing on the Leaguers themselves. Of course, my complete lack of interest in the old Milestone characters also dampens my interest in this current story arc.
I am not all that excited for Trinity #31. This title continues to be a rather bland read.
However, the DC comic book that I am least looking forward to reading is Teen Titans #66. This title continues to decline with each issue. And the teasers for the new roster for this team do absolutely nothing for me.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Dude, this is a tough one to pick. We are getting flooded by an awesome selection of comic books from the House of Ideas this week! I am excited to read pretty much every single one of them.
I am looking forward to Avengers/Invaders #7. Krueger has hooked me with this stunning move by the original Human Torch to liberate and lead the LMD’s against the humans.
I am sure that Captain America #45 will be another excellent read. This title is so dependable.
I am interested in seeing the funeral for Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four #562. Millar has quickly made this title one of Marvel’s better reads.
I am sure that DnA will crank out yet another riveting read in Guardians of the Galaxy #8. This issue is going to be a lead-in to the War of Kings event. There is no doubt that we will get plenty of good action and a few surprises.
I am excited to read Kick Ass #5. Millar has crafted such a gem with this title. This is one of the most entertaining and off-beat interpretations of the super-hero genre.
However, the Marvel comic book that I am most looking forward to reading is Wolverine #70. Millar’s Old Man Logan story arc has been so entertaining. I love the rich and textured world that Millar has crafted as the setting for this story. And it is going to be so much fun when Millar finally lets Logan cut loose with a little bit of “the old ultra-violence.”
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? None. This is an absolutely fantastic selection of titles from the House of Ideas for this week.
