My Latest Pull List – September 19th, 2012

Posted by under *dislike, 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.

Only five this week and I’m caught up on nearly all of them.

  • AVENGERS #30 – Aside from the Walt Simonson art, I really haven’t enjoyed the AvX tie-in issues for this book. What bothers me most is the lack of coordination with other books that are part of the event. It’s a shame as the stories could have added some real depth if they felt like they had an impact outside of this title.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #0 – I’m not sure how I’m feeling about DC Comics’ “Zero Month” but I’ve been following this series. Last week’s Batman #0 took an interesting approach to the flashback gimmick by telling an early story of Bruce Wayne’s costumed career that will have a direct connection to issue #13 when the New 52 returns to the present. Unfortunately, Justice League #0‘a Shazam story isn’t a sure thing for me. Gary Frank artwork should help with that as well as the Shazam back up features that have been running in the book recently. 
  • NEW MUTANTS #49 – I’m several issues behind in my reading for this series, but the cover has me intrigued. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s move from the Marvel Cosmos to this book could pay huge dividends as they tell the latest tale of the Technarchy.
  • SPIDER-MEN #5 – I’m liking this meeting of Spider-Men, but a lot hangs on how it wraps up. One of the best aspects of this story is the way Brian Bendis has taken this monumental collision of the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe and kept it very personal.
  • X-FACTOR #244 – The Breaking Points arc running in X-Factor right now is great and Peter David is really putting the team through the wringer. Last issue’s Polaris story is going to be tough to beat for me, but every issue has delivered on the “five days that will change X-Factor forever” promise.

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.
