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.
Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Let’s hope talking about comics can provide a nice break from all of the tragic stories coming out of the past two days here on the East Coast. Have a safe and happy Halloween.
- A+X #1 – Not sure how long I’m on board for this series, but I like the idea of getting two Avengers/X-Men team-ups every month. Kicking it off with Cable and Captain America is really appealing, I just hope this story channels the spirit of Cable and Deadpool #25 more than Avengers: X-Sanction #1 . This book is also shipping with seven different covers, and the Mike Deodato variant is something I might track down.
- AQUAMAN #13 – I’ve been debating whether to drop this series for a few months now, and with The Others storyline wrapping up here it seemed like the right time. An upcoming crossover with Justice League may have me sticking around for a few more issues.
- AvX: CONSEQUENCES #4 – This follow up to AvX is great. I’m happy to see Kieron Gillen getting a chance to take Cyclops in a new direction despite his Uncanny X-Men ending (again) earlier this month.
- BEDLAM #1 – In honor of Halloween, I’m planning to try out Nick Spencer’s new horror series from Image Comics.
- CAPTAIN MARVEL #6 – I still have some catching up to do on this series, but I’m not crazy about seeing another return of Mar-Vell (the original Captain Marvel) after recent appearances in Secret Invasion and AvX: Secret Avengers.
- LOT 13 #1 – Another new horror series starting on Halloween. This one is from Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Glenn Fabry (Preacher), and DC Comics.
- NEW MUTANTS #50 – I liked this book, but it appears to have run its course with this final issue. Unfortunately, it’s the type of book that should have a place in the Marvel Now! status quo as it really distinguished itself from the other X-titles.
- WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #19 – The Jean Grey School’s second year promises a lot of changes in the aftermath of last issue’s tragic ending.
- X-MEN: LEGACY #275 – It’s a bit surreal seeing the final issue of this book ship. It was Marvel’s longest running uninterrupted title (despite a few name changes) for a few months and I’ve been on board since #1. A new X-Men: Legacy is relaunching with a new focus and creative team next month, but it’s still tough seeing the original series end.
