My Latest Pull List – September 12th, 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.

It’s a big week this time around with nine new books on my list.

  • AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #11 – I actually found myself missing this book with four weeks since the last issue after months of biweekly shipping. It’s not perfect but I am enjoying it. The last two issues could make or break it but Olivier Coipel back as the artist for this issue is a big plus.
  • BATMAN #0 – My first foray into DC’s “Zero Month.” Snyder and Capullo’s Batman is unquestionably my favorite series of the New 52 and I’m curious to see what they do with this flashback issue.
  • THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #6 – More crazy science, technology, and magic. Can’t get enough.
  • NEW AVENGERS #30 – Despite the excellent prison break and Iron Fist stories in this title, I’ve been going into each AvX tie-in issue with low expectations. Hopefully this book will continue to be a pleasant surprise.
  • UNCANNY X-FORCE #31 – Still loving this title even though last issue saw a major drop in art quality. Phil Noto on this one should be great.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #18 – I’ve lauded Kieron Gilllen for working his ongoing plot points from this series into the fabric of AvX, but it seems this issue fits right into the main series. I’m curious to see what else he’s able to incorporate here.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #16 – Last issue was excellent and renewed my faith in this title. The return of Chris Bachalo on art is more good news. Unfortunately this issue seems to go in a different direction entirely as a Phoenix powered Cyclops sets his sights on the new Hellfire Club kids.
  • X-MEN #35 – Way behind on this series. I like the cover although it’s a stylistic shift from the last few issues.
  • X-MEN LEGACY #273 – This book has seen a dramatic change of scenery after the AvX tie ins but I’m loving it. It’s still wholly focused on Rogue which is fitting as the series wraps with issue #275.

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.
