My Latest Pull List – November 14th, 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.

I’m not sure that I’ll be sampling all of the new titles launching as part of Marvel Now, but the five titles shipping this week made the list for one reason or another. Unfortunately, that causes this week’s total to balloon to eleven books along with a fair share of non-Marvel reading.

  • ALL NEW X-MEN #1 – I’m a huge fan of the “Original Five” and while displacing them in time wasn’t immediately appealing, I can’t wait to see it.
  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #697 – Counting up to #700, where I will likely end my Spidey collecting.
  • BATMAN #14 – Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman is undeniably great, but running a solid Joker story is even better. I really appreciate the way “Death of the Family” is being published in that reading other titles doesn’t feel like a requirement, but I always fear I’m missing something.
  • FANTASTIC FOUR #1 – The solicit promises “a journey through all of infinite time and space.” How could I not be on board for that? With Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley as the creative team, this might even be a title I keep up with.
  • FIRST X-MEN #4 – Not sure that I got around to reading #3 yet, so this one will probably wait until the whole series has shipped at this point.
  • THE MASSIVE #6 – I need to catch up on this book having jumped on at issue #4. Anything involving Antarctica automatically gets my attention.
  • NEW AVENGERS #33 – Despite Mike Deodato’s art, this book is doing nothing for me as it wraps up. Since the “Heroic Age” relaunch of this title, it ran hot or cold from arc to arc and this one isn’t for me.
  • SAGA #7 – Really happy to see this series return and an advance look at this issue shows it hasn’t suffered at all in its absence.
  • THOR, GOD OF THUNDER #1 – Esad Ribic is the reason I’m trying this book. Jason Aaron is hit or miss for me, and Thor is a tough sell.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #20 – My interest in this book is wavering and double shipping each month does not help at all. 
  • X-MEN: LEGACY #1 – Si Spurrier really caught my attention with his X-Club work and seeing him get his hands on Legion is intriguing. I just hope the series builds from what Mike Carey established with the character during his tenure on the previous volume of Legacy. Mike Del Mundo’s cover art is a big plus for this book.

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.
