There is not much from DC this week that really grabs my interest. Surprisingly, one of the DC titles that I am looking forward to reading is Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3. I have never been a Wonder Woman fan nor have I ever been much of a Greg Rucka fan. However, this mini-series has been quite an enjoyable read. Rucka has done a great job getting the reader inside Wonder Woman’s mind. I look forward to seeing what Rucka has in store for us with this final issue.
I am certainly looking forward to Great Ten #4. I love these characters and have been impressed with how Tony Bedard has been handling them. I like that each issue is told from the point of view from a different member of the Great 10. Bedard is doing a fine job giving the reader a well balanced read. This story has plenty of action and adventure as well as some quality character work.
There are a couple of titles from Marvel that I am excited to read. Nova #34 should be another exciting issue. DnA are doing a great job with this current story arc involving the Sphinx. This story has the proper grand cosmic scale to the story. To be sure, Jim Starlin would heartily approve of what DnA are doing with this title. This current story arc involves all the proper Sci-Fi themes ranging from alternate realities, time travel and battles between cosmic god-like beings.
I expect Wolverine: Weapon X #10 to be another good read. Jason Aaron has been money in the bank with this title. Personally, there is only one Wolverine title that Marvel publishes that is worth you hard earned money. And that one title is Wolverine: Weapon X. Aaron simply “gets” Wolverine’s character better than any writer who has been handling Wolverine’s character since the 1990’s ended.
Aaron knows that what makes Wolverine cool is not his ridiculously bloated and preposterously convoluted history. Logan is best when he is written like the Man-With-No-Name. Wolverine is more entertaining when he is not investigating his “origin” in the 616 universe, but instead simply going out and kicking ass and generally causing havoc.
Yeah, I am going to give Ultimate Comics X #1 a chance. I know that I should not. It is Jeph Loeb after all. Loeb’s run at Marvel Comics has been abysmal. There is no reason for me to believe that Loeb will suddenly regain his mojo that he had rolling over during his time with DC. There are two reasons why I am getting Ultimate Comics X #1. First, I cannot resist trying a debut issue of a new title. Second, Art Adams is the artist for this title. I love Adams’ artwork so I will get this issue at least for the pretty pictures.
I am not that enthused to read Invincible Iron Man #23. Matt Fraction’s unoriginal, dull and slow storytelling is putting my patience to a test. As a long-time and die-hard Iron Man, I find it almost impossible to not purchase this title. However, at some point, something has to give. As long as I have been reading comic books, I have been reading Invincible Iron Man. That may have to finally come to an end.
I am not all that excited to read Siege #2. I found the debut issue of this title to be massively anti-climactic. And that was even after keeping my expectations for this “big” event very low. It seems to me that this incredibly thin and shallow story could not possibly have been “seven years in the making” as Marvel has been trumpeting.
Instead, Siege feels slapped together in a hurried fashion so that Marvel would have a “big” event to combat the sales juggernaut known as Blackest Night that has been absolutely dominating Marvel as of late. Of course, maybe Bendis will surprise me with Siege #2 and crank up the intensity and excitement in this “big” event.
