My Latest Pull List – March 12th, 2014

Posted by under *like, Comics | Leave a Comment |

Pretty typical list this week with six new books for Wednesday.

  • ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #4 - I’m already behind on this series as a result of the All-New Marvel Now double shipping schedule, but Peter David’s X-Factor is always going to be on my list.
  • ALL-NEW X-MEN #24 - The Trial of Jean Grey continues. I’m enjoying this crossover with Guardians of the Galaxy and Brian Bendis is providing some great moments. Unfortunately I can’t quite get past the questions I have about how Corsair is back and why the Shi’Ar would go after Jean now. It would help if Gladiator (or anyone else) would justify that Jean’s return is an issue because of Phoenix activity during AvX or Battle of the Atom or really anything else.
  • BATMAN #29 - It’s not that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy the Batman Eternal preview last month, but I’m certainly looking forward to the next chapter of Zero Year. I don’t know if I can commit to a weekly Batman Eternal book, but I’ll continue with Snyder and Capullo’s Batman monthly as long as they’re on it.
  • CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 - The last Captain Marvel relaunch just missed the start of the Marvel Now wave. Hopefully an All-New Marvel Now relaunch allows it go for a decent run. Kelly Sue DeConnick’s writing is right where it needs to be and David Lopez is a solid regular artist.
  • X-FORCE #2 - Still not sure about this latest X-Force relaunch but the first issue was an interesting start. The dynamic between Cable and Psylocke has a lot of appeal, but what happened to Hope?!
  • X-MEN LEGACY #300 - I’m way behind on the Legion-fronted volume of this book, but I won’t let that stop me from jumping right into this. Mike Carey alone makes this a must buy.

Weekly comic books are a big part of my life and I regularly post what I’ll be picking up each Wednesday along with cover artwork and previews courtesy of Comixology’s Pull List app.

My Latest Pull List – March 5th, 2014

Posted by under *like, Comics | Leave a Comment |

Seven new books on my list this Wednesday and five of them are first issues Dark Horse, Image, and the “All-New Marvel Now” line.

  • FOREVER EVIL #6 - Feels like a long time since issue #5 and with Justice League moving away from the Owlman/Nightwing story in recent issues I find myself very anxious for what comes next. The cover and solicit suggest it’s nothing good.
  • MAGNETO #1 - I’m thoroughly enjoying Brian Bendis’ X-Men books, but I’m not sure Magneto (or Cyclops for that matter) needs a solo series at the moment. I haven’t read much of Cullen Bunn’s work but I do recall enjoying Gabriel Hernandez Walta‘s art during Age of X and Curse of the Mutants. This is definitely worth a look.
  • MOOK KNIGHT #1 - I overlooked the “All-New” Moon Knight when I first saw Marvel’s latest wave of new titles until someone pointed it out as a possible reddit/r/rcomicbooks “Pull of the Week” for early 2014. I like the character and the creative team of Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey, and I want this to be great.
  • STARLIGHT #1 - Just noticed this on the shipping schedule on Monday and while I’m not the biggest Mark Millar fan it deserves a look.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #18 - I don’t know anything about artist Marco Rudy but the cover to this issue is pretty great. The interiors shown in the preview pages suggest a unique style.
  • VEIL #1 - I’m enjoying Greg Rucka‘s Lazarus series to the point where I cannot pass up another new title with him at the helm.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 - When it was all said and done, I found myself disappointed with Jason Aaron’s previous volume of this series. There are only a handful of issues I genuinely enjoyed as things usually ran a bit too silly for my tastes. I regularly read all of the X-titles, but it’s going to take a lot from Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar’s first issue to keep me coming back.

My Latest Pull List – February 26th, 2014

Posted by under *like, Comics | Leave a Comment |

Six new books on my list this Wednesday.

  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #12 - One of the things I’ve been looking forward to most from The Trial of Jean Grey is seeing artist Sara Pichelli‘s take on the original X-Men. We only got a taste in the last issue of Guardians but there should be a lot more here.
  • HALO ESCALATION #3 - I like the way Dark Horse’s Halo books are fitting into the status quo of the current Halo games. I think a lack of clear connectivity (to me at least) between the comics and the games is part of what kept me away from the Marvel line of books.
  • ORIGIN II #3 - Undecided on whether I like the connections this series is making in Wolverine’s history but I do like Adam Kubert‘s art and I trust Kieron Gillen to deliver something special.
  • SERENITY LEAVES ON THE WIND #2 - Strong start to this series last month. Of all the various Joss Whedon properties that have found new life in print at Dark Horse, this might have the most potential.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #17 - I’m enjoying this series but it has reached the point where it feels like the Apocalypse Twins story may be going on too long. Putting all of the mutant members of the team on the shelf hasn’t helped.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #42 - More than ready for this series to wrap up. I stuck with it through a lot of stories even though it wasn’t what I was looking for most of the time. With the All-New relaunch coming up  next week, it will take a lot from the first issue to keep me coming back.

My Latest Pull List – February 19th, 2014

Posted by under *like, Comics | Leave a Comment |

Seven new books on my list this Wednesday, though I may only bring five of these home with me.

  • AMAZING X-MEN #4 - I have to admit I kind of forget about this title between issues. As much as I appreciate Firestar as part of the cast (offset by irritation at her absence from the New Warriors line up), I may be done with this after the first arc. I stuck with Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men longer than I should have and I’m fearing this is heading in the same direction.
  • AVENGERS WORLD #3 - I’m seriously contemplating dropping this series on the spot. Three Avengers titles is pushing it for me and I honestly can’t even tell you what’s happening in this book.
  • CAPTAIN AMERICA #17 - Thinking about picking this up for the appearance of Dr. Mindbubble. I seem to recall him being referenced in Rick Remender‘s Uncanny X-Force. Any feedback from people reading the series is appreciated.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #28 - The Forever Evil tie-in issues of Justice League have been decent enough. I’m more invested in Nightwing and Cyborg than the Metal Men, but this could be fun.
  • NEW WARRIORS #1 - I really enjoyed the original series and it’s good to see something similar returning. Chris Yost writing is an added bonus as a fan of his New X-Men/X-Force runs.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #17 - I sometimes can’t believe how much I’m enjoying Brian Bendis‘ X-Men titles and Chris Bachalo‘s art will move this to the top of my reading list this week.
  • X-MEN #11 - All-New Marvel Now double shipping and a general lack of interest in the current arc has me an issue or two behind on this series.

My Latest Pull List – February 12th, 2014

Big week with ten new books on my list for this Wednesday.

  • ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #3 - I’m already behind on this title. Double shipping can be the worst.
  • ALL-NEW X-MEN #23 - This is my favorite book right now and I’m completely on board with the crossover with Guardians of the Galaxy. Looking forward to see the two teams actually interact.
  • AVENGERS #26 - The words “science war” in the solicit have really captured my attention.
  • BATMAN #28 - Can’t say enough good things about this title. There are times I feel like Zero Year is a let down, but I’m wrong. I just forget what how much I’m enjoying it between issues.
  • SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #27 - I dropped Superior at issue #3. Not entirely sure I’ll end up bringing this home, but the Goblin Nation story starting here is a huge draw.
  • SHE-HULK #1 – Writer Charles Soule is making a name for himself in comics, but his legal background makes him a perfect fit for She-Hulk’s alter-ego Jennifer Walters. 
  • WINTER SOLDIER #1 - I’m not trying all of the All-New Marvel Now titles, but Andrew Robinson’s cover art really caught my eye.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #41 - I’m more than ready for this to end and I’m just seeing it through to the final issue. I’m loyal to a fault with Marvel’s X-titles, but this is one I should have bailed on a long time ago.
  • X-FORCE #1 - Two X-Force titles may have been a bit much, but the teams coming together here have a ton of potential. Cable and Psylocke alone would get this on my list.
  • X-MEN: LEGACY #24 - The final issue of a title I let myself fall way too far behind on. Looking forward to catching up on what I’ve missed.
