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.
Only five this time around.
- DOCTOR WHO: PRISONERS OF TIME #5 – I’ve been critical of this series’ pacing with each issue essentially being an isolated adventure of a particular incarnation of the Doctor and his companions with little connective tissue to hold the issues together. I don’t expect that to change here, but it will be nice to see “my” Doctor, Peter Davison, again.
- NEW AVENGERS #6 – This book is just great and I’m enjoying the monthly shipping schedule. It’s allowing Jonathan Hickman‘s story to unfold at a deliberate pace, and every issue has impact. A lot of Marvel Now feels overwhelming with the number of issues that are shipping.
- UNCANNY X-FORCE #5 – A trip inside Bishop’s mind. It will be interesting to see how far this might go to rehabilitate him after his actions in Messiah Complex and Duane Swierczynski’s Cable series.
- WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #30 – I’m way behind on this but I’m hoping to catch up before the Hellfire Saga begins next issue.
- X-MEN #1 – This series has a strong creative team with Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel, and a stronger cast. I’m looking forward to seeing how all of these characters will interact in light if all the Schisms, AvXs, and vampirism that has gone on in recent years.
