My Latest Pull List – October 10th, 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 Wednesday with ten new books on the list, the start of Marvel Now!, and New York Comic Con this weekend.

  • AVENGERS #31 – I’m assuming this is Brian Bendis’ final arc on the series . Did we ever get that Ultron War?
  • AVX: CONSEQUENCES #1 – As the distance from Avengers versus X-Men grows, I’m liking the event more and more. It had its share of flaws, but Kieron Gillen’s Uncanny X-Men tie-ins were among the best and I have high hopes for this series.
  • BATMAN #13 – DC’s Zero Month is over. The Joker is back. It’s time for the Death of the Family and I haven’t been this interested in a Batman book in a long time.
  • FIRST X-MEN #3 – I may end up liking the Neal Adams variant for Uncanny Avengers #1 more than this series by the time it’s over, but for now I’m enjoying it and it hasn’t been the continuity disaster it threatened to be.
  • MASSIVE #5 – I’m late to the party on this sci-fi series from Brian Wood, but after seeing Antarctica in the preview for the issue I had to check it out.
  • SECRET AVENGERS #32 – I’ve been happy to get back to Rick Remender’s story after the AvX tie-ins on this title, but I’m fearing a rushed wrap up as Marvel Now! rolls out. This issue has a great Art Adams cover.
  • TRANSFUSION #1 – A new mini-series from IDW that promises a future overrun by out-of-control machines and monsters, a handful of human survivors, and their fight to regain a normal life. From 30 Days of Night‘s Steve Niles and menton3 of Monocyte.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 There’s a lot of hype as this book users in Marvel Now! but what has me most interested is the X-Men’s  Havok as an Avenger. I’m also a big Rogue fan and with Rick Remender writing this is a must buy for me. Then there are all those variants…
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #18 – I give this series a lot of grief for being too silly for my taste at times, but the preview for this issue suggests a more serious tone in the wake of AvX. Jorge Molina art is another plus.
  • X-MEN #37 – I need to catch up here, but the last few issues seemed very out of sync with all the AvX business. I don’t want or need every book to tie into Marvel’s major events, but this book involves a lot of characters that had big roles to play.

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.
