My Latest Pull List – February 5th, 2014

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

Six new books on my list for this Wednesday.

  • FOREVER EVIL #5 - Feels like forever since the last issue of this series with so many titles on my list double-shipping. Looking forward to seeing what’s next for the remaining heroes of the DCU.
  • LAZARUS #6 - This was my favorite new series of 2013. Plausible science fiction, great world building, and enough intrigue to keep me around for the duration.
  • MS. MARVEL #1 - I still miss Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel, but this definitely looks like it’s worth a shot.
  • NEW AVENGERS #14 - Easily the Avengers book I’m enjoying the most.
  • WOLVERINE #1 - Trying this almost exclusively for Paul Cornell.
  • X-MEN #10 - This book is going to get hit with some shrapnel here. I get Marvel rolling out the All-New Marvel Now banner for their latest crop of new titles. I even get throwing a giant “#1” on the covers of existing titles to pull them into the rebranding and spark interest in a new arc (a #1 on both chapters one and two of a crossover is pushing it when it comes to All-New X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy). Then this book has a giant “#1” on the cover and it’s clearly the middle of an arc. It’s a decent arc, but the point to jump in was three months ago.

Six new books on my list for this Wednesday and all of them pretty great.

  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #11 - The Trial of Jean Grey. I’m really into this crossover with All-New X-Men. Particularly looking forward to seeing Sara Pichelli’s take on the original X-Men.
  • SAGA #18 - Always a welcome entry on the list.
  • SERENITY LEAVES ON THE WIND #1 - I have high hopes for this extension of Joss Whedon’s space western.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #16 - There was no way I wasn’t sticking with this title with Havok on the roster, but things have really picked up in recent months. Steve McNiven art certainly doesn’t hurt.
  • UNCANNY X-FORCE #17 - The Vendetta crossover with Cable and X-Force is a great next chapter for Hope Summers. It feels like things might be wrapping up too quickly though.
  • X-MEN LEGACY #23 - Amazing cover art. One day I’ll get to the interior material.

My Latest Pull List – January 22nd, 2014

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

It looks like 2014 starts for real with a ton of books shipping this week. Eleven new books made it on to my list for this Wednesday.

  • ALL-NEW INVADERS #1 - I’m not entirely sure I’ll be picking this up, but the All-New Marvel Now Point One story certainly piqued my interest.
  • ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #2 - Forgot about the double-shipping that accompanied the first wave of the Marvel Now rebranding. It looks like we’ll be seeing the same with the All-New books. I imagine that will greatly impact my ability to keep up with my reading.
  • ALL-NEW X-MEN #22 - This is at the top of my reading list every time it ships and I can’t wait for the crossover with Bendis’ Guardians of the GalaxyThe Trial of Jean Grey starts here!
  • AVENGERS #25 - Jonathan Hickman’s new arc for this series coming out of Infinity is off to a solid start.
  • AVENGERS WORLD #2 - Unfortunately Hickman’s newest Avengers series isn’t grabbing my attention.
  • BATMAN #27 - DC’s monthly shipping schedule stands in stark contrast to the rapid pace of Marvel’s line. It really gives me a chance to miss this book.
  • CABLE AND X-FORCE #19 - The Vendetta crossover with Uncanny X-Force has been exactly what I’m looking for as the next chapter for Cable and Hope.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #27 - The Forever Evil tie-in story is intriguing. I’m just left wondering where the main series is on the schedule.
  • ORIGIN II #2 - I’m a big fan of Kieron Gillen and Adam Kubert, but not so crazy about Wolverine. Their first issue of this series got me to commit for the whole thing.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #40 - I was going through the motions getting this title for a long time, but the Battle of the Atom issues and the current arc have been a real treat.
  • X-MEN #9 - A bit let down by the current story after a strong start and Battle of the Atom but there’s still huge potential for where things could go.

My Latest Pull List – January 15th, 2014

Six new books on my list this week.

  • ALL-NEW X-MEN #21 - The inclusion of X-23 with the original X-Men has been great. It’s tough to say whether this will be the first book I read this week or Uncanny.
  • AMAZING X-MEN #3 - It’s an X-heavy week and while I’m enjoying this series it hasn’t captured my attention like Bendis’ X-books.
  • MIRACLEMAN #1 - I’m on the fence with this reissue series but I’ll likely try the first one. I only know of this series and have never read the source material.
  • UNCANNY X-FORCE #16 - I caught up on Cable and X-Force over the holidays in anticipation of the Vendetta cross-over. Still have a few issues of Uncanny X-Force to catch up on.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #16 - An issue focusing on Magneto. Chris Bachalo’s art may be what pushes this to the top of my list this week.
  • X-MEN LEGACY #22 - I’ve fallen many issues behind on this series. It’s probably going to be something I read in its entirety when the series wraps up in a month or two.

My Latest Pull List – January 8th, 2014

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

Six new books on my list to start the All-New Year.

  • ALL-NEW MARVEL NOW POINT ONE #1 - This anthology should be enough confirm if I’ve made the right choices about which All-New Marvel Now titles to pick up.
  • ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #1 - Perhaps the All-New title I’m most looking forward to. Peter David’s X-Factor has been a favorite for a long time.
  • AVENGERS WORLD #1 - A year ago, I’m not sure I would have believed I’d be picking up three Avengers series from Jonathan Hickman, but here I am.
  • CABLE AND X-FORCE #18 - Caught up on this series during the lighter weeks at the end of the year. Despite the Adversary coming off a bit silly, I’m enjoying this arc.
  • HALO ESCALATION #2 - Dark Horse’s Halo books have been fun so far, but the real appeal is where and how these books fit in with the games.
  • REVOLUTIONARY WAR ALPHA #1 - Andy Lanning’s take on Marvel’s UK characters is certainly worth a look and the Mark Brooks cover doesn’t hurt.
