Each week, MK2Fac3 and Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesnâ€™t? So, letâ€™s take a look into the depths of their pull list, grab some issues and weâ€™ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of May 25, 2011.

This is a personal favorite of mine, and I simply can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
