All right, this week looks to be a pretty heavy week. Add to that the fact that I will be moving into a new house over the next week and it looks like I will be struggling to post reviews this week.
Which DC comic book am I most looking forward to reading? Well, that is certainly a tough choice. We have McDuffie’s first issue on the Justice League of America with issue #13. We have the new creative team kicking off on Teen Titans #51. And then we have the always entertaining “goddman” Batman on All Star Batman. And to round things off, we have the dramatic return of one of my favorite Legionnaires in Wildfire over on Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #34.
I’m going to have to go with Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #34. I know that probably isn’t the issue that most people would pick out of those four titles that I listed, but I’m a huge Legion fan and I have been waiting a long time for Wildfire to make his return to this newest incarnation of the Legion.
Which DC comic book am I least looking forward to reading? That would be Countdown #31. This title has been such a disappointment for me. I keep hoping that Dini is going to get this story rolling, but each week I leave unsatisfied with the efforts Dini & Co. are giving us.
Which Marvel comic book am I most looking forward to reading? It comes down to Immortal Iron Fist #9 and Iron Man #22. Both titles are incredibly well done comic books. Immortal Iron Fist #9 just edges out Iron Man #22. Brubaker and Fraction have been white hot on Immortal Iron Fist ever since the debut issue. I am completely enthralled with this current tournament story arc and can’t wait to read this issue.
Which Marvel comic book am I least looking forward to reading? This one is easy. X-Men #203. This title is so poorly written. All I get each month on this title are hyper-kinetic and disjointed brawls laced together with some rather generic dialogue.
I’ll try my best to start posting reviews as soon as possible. I hope everyone enjoys their new comic books for this week.

Did’nt you just write that you bought a house like two months ago. How many houses do you need? Some of live in the rich overpriced part of LA where houses start at around a million, and we can’t afford a house in our wildest dreams or unless we kill several people for insurance money.
I hated Countdown every issue so far. It’s been pointless and plot driven to the point where characters act retarded, but this week’s issue was actually quite good, relatively speaking. It’s still not the best book ever, but McKeever did a great job with the Crime Syndicate and most of hte plots had some movement this week.
It might just be my low expectations, but I think this was definitely a step in the right direction.
Marvel side of things, you hit the nail on the head with X-Men 203. Save yourself the time reviewing it. That 2 line paragraph is all you need to describe it. Only other disappointment from Marvel this week was Iron Fist Annual. Not a terrible issue, but poor art hurt it and I was expecting bigger things from the usually awesome Fraction and Brubaker. The main series was perfect though and another great issue this month.
The Weekly Crisis
good call, legion 34 was awesome, but the cover was switched. very weird. any thoughts on why?
Thanks for the compliments Rokk, I appreciate it. Hope your move / touch ups went alright with the new home.
