No Top 10 or any random musings for this week. I am slammed at work as I am in the middle of some complex litigation at the moment. Therefore, I have to make this quick. Let’s check out the comic books for this week. It looks like we have a total of 11 titles headed to the Bunker this week. This week’s shipment of comic books is a bit heavier with Marvel titles than DC titles.
Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Oh, this is just too easy. It simply has to be Legion of Super Heroes #38. I was stunned by how fantastic Shooter was with his debut issue on this title. Shooter brought back that magic Legion feeling to a title that has been limping along half-dead for decades. Now is a great time to be a Legion fan. And if you haven’t read this title before or gave up on it a while back then this is a perfect time to hop back aboard this train.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? This is also an easy one. It has to be Countdown to Final Crisis #14. This title continues to be a dreadful read and I simply cannot hold out any rational hope that we are going to get a quality ending to this story. I will continue to suffer through having to chronicle this title in order to save people from having to waste their hard earned money on this pathetic excuse for a comic book.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Well, this is a tough decision. We actually have a really strong selection of comic books headed our way from the House of Ideas. Astonishing X-Men #24 is sure to be a strong read. Whedon’s run on this title has been an absolute blast even with the shipping issues that have plagued this title.
Iron Man #25 is another issue that should provide for an incredibly strong read. The Knaufs have done a masterful job on this title easily making Iron Man one of Marvel’s best titles.
However, the issue that I am most looking forward to reading would be X-Men #207. This issue is the dramatic conclusion of the fantastic Messiah Complex story arc. I have loved Messiah Complex from the very start and I am sure that the boys at Marvel have something pretty wild in store for us with the conclusion of Messiah Complex.
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be Ultimates 3 #2. What Loeb gives us on this title is a far cry of the incredible work that Millar cranked out on this title.
I’ll try my best to start posting reviews as soon as possible. I hope everyone enjoys their new comic books for this week.
