My Latest Pull List – June 6th, 2012

Posted by under *like, Comics |

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.

Six new books for me this week with lots of AvX on the list. I’m still debating Dark Avengers (formerly Thunderbolts#175 much like I went back and forth with last week’s Batman Annual #1. Scott Snyder’s Mr.Freeze story turned out to be a great read even if it didn’t have much to do with the Night of the Owls event and I’m glad I didn’t skip it. I haven’t been reading Jeff Parker’s *Thunderbolts* as I have Snyder’s *Batman*, so it’s less of a sure thing.

  • AGE OF APOCALYPSE #4 – The reappearance of the AoA Hulk could be a lot of fun. It will be interesting to see if the character has been changed much since the original X-Universe series. I don’t remember him being a very nice guy at all.
  • AVENGERS ACADEMY #31 – An AvX tie-in that has been one of the stories I’m less interested in from the event. Admittedly, Sebastian Shaw’s escape was pretty fantastic and the last page homage to Uncanny X-Men #132 was more than enough to bring me back.
  • AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #5 – Act one of AvX comes to a close. I was honestly surprised to see John Romita Jr. listed as the artist for a fifth consecutive issue, but if this issue wraps up the first arc of the story I suppose it makes sense. Can’t wait to see what comes next with Hope Summers, the X-Men, and the Phoenix returning to the moon.
  • DARK AVENGERS #175 – I’m still not sure if I’m picking this up today, but I did enjoy Warren Ellis’ Thunderbolts and Dark Avengers quite a bit. I’m less familiar with Jeff Parker’s work with the title though.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #13 – Kieron Gillen continues to work his ongoing plots into the framework of AvX and I’m really enjoying it. Last issue left some things to be desired, but the promise of Mr. Sinister could change all that.
  • X-FACTOR #237 – Peter David’s X-Factor is always an enjoyable book and a road trip issue featuring Banshee, Wolfsbane, and Polaris sounds like a premise he could turn into something memorable. It will be nice for Polaris to see some expanded panel time regardless.

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.
