My Latest Pull List – December 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.

A light list with only four new titles took me by surprise this week. The break is welcome since I have a lot reading to catch up on.

  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #699.1 – The words “point one” get thrown around a lot by Marvel, but one thing that’s seems consistent is that books bearing the moniker are touted as jumping on points. A “point one” issue shipping just before a series finale is certainly stretching the term, even if Morbius is getting his own Marvel Now title.
  • AVENGERS ARENA #1 – This is perhaps my least anticipated book of the Marvel Now launch. I like some of the “Marvel Youth” set to appear in this title, but I’m no fan of the villain Arcade and the Battle Royale-esque premise doesn’t thrill me at all.
  • BATMAN #15 – This would have been the book I was most looking forward to reading this week, but I’ve been advised by a trusted source (i.e. KevinMLD) to read Scott Snyder’s Black Mirror run on Detective Comics first. I’ve been meaning to read that for a while now and the small pull list this week might actually make it possible.
  • CABLE AND X-FORCE #1 – Since I won’t be getting to Batman first thing tomorrow, this steps right into the top spot. I’m an unabashed Cable fan and I have high hopes for this series. Seeing Havok prominently featured in the preview goes a long way to help. Admittedly, I’m not crazy about this being one of two Marvel Now X-Force titles or the redesign of Doctor Nemesis. It’s a very ’90s look and it does not seem right for his character nor anyone that was born in 1906.

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.
