We are getting yet another monster sized shipment of comic books headed to the Bunker today. We are getting a total of 17 titles. This selection of titles is heavier with Marvel titles this week.
Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? I am definitely excited to read Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns #1. I have enjoyed most of the Final Crisis tie-in issues and I suspect that I will also enjoy this issue. Plus, this issue is the prelude to the Blackest Night event which I have been greatly looking forward to.
Of course, it is no surprise that I am looking forward to Legion of Super Heroes #47. Thom and I have not been shy about our love for Shooter’s work on this title. I have completely enjoyed Shooter’s run and I will be reading these final issues of Shooter’s Legion with a tinge of sadness knowing that DC is going to once again rip up the Legion.
However, Superman #681 is the DC comic book that I am most looking forward to reading. Johns and Robinson completely wowed me with their fantastic work on Superman: New Krypton Special #1. That issue immediately hooked my interest in the New Krypton story arc and I am excited to see what Robinson has in store for us with this issue.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? I am not that excited to read Justice League of America #26. McDuffie has completely lost me with this goofy spider-god villain that we are getting with this story arc.
However, Teen Titans #64 is the DC comic book that I am least looking forward to reading. Now, I have enjoyed McKeever’s work in the past. But, what McKeever is giving us on Teen Titans is simply awful. I am talking Fan Fiction awful. Teen Titans is rapidly becoming completely unreadable.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? I am looking forward to Wolverine: First Class #8. This title is always a blast to read. And it is so much fun reading a title that giving us Wolverine back when he was actually cool.
Now, any regular follower of The Revolution knows that I am a huge fan of Charles and Daniel Knauf. So, naturally, once I found out that these gentlemen were writing Captain America: Theater of War: Operation Zero-Point #1 I just had to add this to my pull list. Normally, I do not bother with special issues like this one. However, if the Knaufs write it, I will read it. I expect this issue to be a quality read.
Still, Incredible Hercules #122 is the Marvel comic book that I am most looking forward to reading. I finally followed the advice of Islandliberal (a regular follower of The Revolution who has been urging me for months to try this title) and gave this title a try a couple of weeks ago. And I absolutely fell in love with this title. Incredible Hercules is simply flat out fun. I expect more of the same with Incredible Hercules #122.
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be Wolverine: Origins #29. This title has been doing its best to make Wolverine less cool with each issue. I was happy to see Mike Deodato take over as the artist for this title. I dig Deodato’s work. Now if we could just get Way removed as the writer then maybe this title might actually become an enjoyable read.
