My Latest Pull List – July 11th, 2012

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

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

Another big week with eight new books on my list for 7/11.

  • AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #9 – I don’t normally read this title, but I’m picking it up for the appearance by Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel) before her new series launches later this month.
  • AVX: VS #4 – I don’t like the “winners” that are picked at the end of these fights, but the series has featured some decent artwork.
  • BATMAN #11 – This series by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo and the Court of Owls arc have been fantastic. Very curious to see how it ends after last issue’s revelations.
  • NEW AVENGERS #28 – The Iron Fist chapters of the AvX tie-ins on this title were great, not sure that will continue as the focus shifts in this issue.
  • NEW MUTANTS #45 – All of the seeds Abnett and Lanning’s have planted throughout this series are meant to come together for this final arc. The two have done some brilliant work and I trust this will pay off.
  • SPIDER-MEN #3 – This has basically shipped every two weeks since issue #1, but there should be a month before #4 where I can catch up. I like what I’ve read so far.
  • UNCANNY X-FORCE #27 – This series has picked up again since the Otherworld arc (which I did enjoy to an extent) and it looks like some big things happen here.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #13 – Looks like the usual combination of action and silliness as the solicit describes the arrival of Gladiator and Kitty going on a mystery date.

Check back every week to see what’s on My Latest Pull List and please share your thoughts on these titles and everything you’re reading this week in the comments.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for July 9th, 2012

Posted by under *mixed, Television | Join The Discussion |

Raw is not War, nor Jericho, nor is it Monday Night Raw starring Brock Lesnar. It’s the YES Network presents AJ’s Kiss of Death.

Tonight Raw pulls into CM Punk’s favorite venue THE PEPSI CENTER in Denver, Colorado. Let’s hope AJ doesn’t share his love of the soft drink because I think we had our fill of her last week. It’s a shame mainly due to the fact that AJ has become and important figure in the WWE landscape and the positive reaction to her has led to overkill. The current WWE status quo is a far cry from where things were heading into last year’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view that featured C.M. Punk on the final night of his contract taking on John Cena for the WWE Championship.

My Latest Pull List – July 4th, 2012

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

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

Seven new books and a day at home to read some of them. Happy 4th of July, everyone!

  • AGE OF APOCALYPSE #5 – I haven’t read this since issue #1 and I’m hoping to catch up today.
  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #689 – More Lizard to go with yesterday’s movie premiere. I made time to see it last night and I’m curious to hear what people thought.
  • AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #7 – I wouldn’t say I wasn’t enjoying this series, but it really turned a corner in the last two issues. Olivier Coipel’s art is a big part of that.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #15 – I’ve lauded Kireon Gillen for his AvX tie-ins continuing his ongoing plots for this title and last issue was one of his best on the series. I honestly can’t wait to see what comes next with Mister Sinister, the Marauders, and all of his Madelyn Pryors.
  • WOLVERINE #310 – I read Loeb’s Evolution and wasn’t crazy about it. Sabretooth’s return is something I’m interested in, but the fact that he showed up months ago takes something away from this. We still don’t know how he came back, and Loeb’s past handling of mysteries has me on the fence here.
  • X-FACTOR #239 – Double shipping on this series has not worked in my favor. This one will put me three issues behind.

Check back every week to see what’s on My Latest Pull List and please share your thoughts on these titles and everything you’re reading this week in the comments.

Monday Night Raw Warm Up for July 2nd, 2012

Posted by under *mixed, Television | Join The Discussion |

Last Monday, the villainous Big Show handed Brodus Clay his first loss and continued his assault on John Cena, ending the night by applying the “Colossal Clutch.” Apparently, much like edible wallpaper, that’s a thing.

The Raw Warm-Up is back as Monday night’s long-running wrestling program continues its march towards the landmark 1000th episode, and three big hours on a continual basis. In the weeks we’ve been gone, the most significant change to the landscape on Monday nights has been centered around the General Manager’s position with Johnny “Ace” Laurinaitis being ousted in part by John Cena partnered with the return of Vince McMahon. The fans seem to have turned a corner with Cena in his ongoing feud with the Big Show, and the power vacuum at the top has led to guest General Managers stepping in each week. Tonight, the much maligned Teddy Long makes a triumphant return calling the shots, and we’re hoping for a strong showing with the return of Brock Lesnar in Laredo, Texas.
