Okay, I have to ask this. What the hell is up with Marvel this week? This is an insanely large collection of comic books from the House of Ideas. Are they releasing absolutely all of their titles for the month on Wednesday? Good lord. It is bordering on ridiculousness.
All right, let’s check out the comic books for this week. It appears that we have a huge shipment of comic books headed to the Bunker this week with a whopping total of 20 titles. Yeah, that’s right. 20 damn titles. I seriously need counseling.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? This is also an easy choice. I cannot say I am all that excited to read Trinity #4. This title isn’t as horrid of a read as Countdown was. But, this title is definitely no 52. Trinity is floundering as a resolutely average read. And that is unacceptable for a weekly title.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Well, since Marvel is throwing everything including the kitchen sink at us today, this is one really tough decision. The House of Ideas is spoiling us with numerous strong reads this week. Daredevil #108 should be a great read as it appears that Brubaker has gotten this title back on track.
Fantastic Four #558 should be a good read. Anytime Doctor Doom comes calling, you know you are in for a wild ride. Also from Millar comes Marvel 1985 #2. I loved the first issue of this title and expect Marvel 1985 #2 to be just as good.
We get double barrel Secret Invasion action from Bendis with Mighty Avengers #15 and New Avengers #42. For the most part, these Secret Invasion tie-in issues have been excellent and certainly better than the story itself on Secret Invasion. I expect these two issues to be strong reads.
However, the Marvel comic book that I am most looking forward to reading is Captain America #39. Yeah, what a surprise. Captain America is Marvel’s 800 pound gorilla and whatever week this title is published, it is almost a lock to be the Marvel comic book that I am most excited to read.
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? This is a tough choice. Ultimates 3 #4 is sure to be a dreadful read. Loeb’s take on the Ultimates has been a huge disappointment to this point.
However, the Marvel comic book that I am least looking forward to reading is Wolverine Origins #26. Way has consistently delivered practically unreadable issues during his entire run on this title. I see no reason for that to change now.
As always, I’ll try my best to start posting reviews as soon as possible. I hope everyone enjoys their new comic books for this week.
