This is a standard sized week for The Revolution. We are getting 15 titles headed to the Bunker today. Once again, we are getting a fairly small and collection of comics from DC this week. Marvel is cranking out plenty of titles this week and several of them should be fantastic reads.

Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? I am intrigued by Last Days of Animal Man #1. This title is being written by comic book legend Gerry Conway. I love Animal Man, but I really only seem to be impressed with his character when Morrison is writing him. Hopefully, Conway can do a good job with Buddy.

However, Green Lantern #41 is the DC comic I am most looking forward to reading. I am anxiously awaiting Blackest Night and I have been enjoying this Agent Orange prelude. I am sure that Johns has plenty of action in store for us with this issue.

Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be Trinity #52. The only positive is that this title has mercifully come to an end as of today. Let’s hope that DC’s next weekly endeavor is an improvement over Trinity.

Which Marvel comic book am I looking forward to reading? There are plenty of choices this week as we are getting some quality reads from the House of Ideas today. Of course, I am looking forward to Incredible Hercules #129. This title is such a blast to read. No, this is not a pseudo-intellectual story nor is it dark and ultra-violent. It is just straight forward good comic book fun.

We are getting two titles that are War of Kings tie-in issues with Guardians of the Galaxy #14 and Nova #25. I am confident that both issues will be good reads. DnA have been incredibly consistent with both titles and War of Kings has been an entertaining event so far. We should get plenty of good action in both issues.

However, the Marvel comic book I am most looking forward to reading is Wolverine #72. I have loved Millar’s Old Man Logan story. And I am anxiously awaiting the inevitable moment that Logan finally pops his claws and becomes Wolverine once again.

Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be New Avengers #53. More than likely we will get another meandering read that moves at a snail’s pace and is crammed full of idle chatter. Maybe Bendis will prove me wrong and deliver an entertaining read.
