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 six new books for me this week, though I will be taking a look at Image’s Harvest #1 and Think Tank #1.
- AGE OF APOCALYPSE #6 – I just caught up on the last four issues of this series and this one is going to have to make an serious impression for me to stick with it. So far it’s primarily consisted of bringing characters back into the mix (and back from the dead) after killing a large number of established AoA characters at the outset, and I’m not sure how effective it has been at making me care (even with the inclusion of Havok).
- AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #9 – I really love the cover to this issue and really hope there’s a fitting pay off inside the book. It’s an instance where the regular cover is far to superior to any of the many variants this book sees each month (which are featured for each issue here on MLD). The preview indicates that Iron Fist story in Brian Bendis’ New Avengers tie-ins will come into play here, and those have been some of the best issues related to this event.
- AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #10 – Part two of the guest appearance by the new Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel) as she and Spidey team up on the heels of her new series.
- FIRST X-MEN #1 – I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. A secret history of mutant protectors could be fun if they don’t take the retcon too far. I want to trust that writer Christos Gage can make something like this work after his X-Men and Spider-Man series a few years ago, and Neal Adams created some of many favorite X-Men comics of all time. That was many years ago, but I’m willing to give it a shot.
- X-FACTOR #241 – An important arc that promises big changes for X-Factor starts here. In a recent interview, Peter David hinted and some great stuff coming out of these next few issues and I’m particularly excited about the Polaris story featured in #243.
- X-MEN #33 – If nothing else, Brian Wood’s run on this title has featured some beautiful cover art. I have a lot of catching up to do here, but a villain named Mr. Grey has me intrigued.
