My Latest Pull List – January 9th, 2013

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.

Eight new books on my list for this week including three series finales and two debuts

  • CABLE AND X-FORCE #3 – I like that Hope Summers has a title she’s regularly appearing in, but I’m still not sure how much I’m enjoying this one. It’s hard to get a sense of Cable in particular and it feels like the character we’ve seen over the last few years is still missing in action.
  • FIRST X-MEN #5 – Neal Adams X-Men sounds great, but this series left me with a mixed reaction after the first issue. I waited for the whole thing to ship before continuing so I’m curious to see how the latest X-retcon turned out.
  • INFINITE VACATION #5 – “…the mind-blowing conclusion to the biggest sci-fi epic of 2011!” I’ll need to re-read this entire series now that it’s wrapping up. That is if I can find the issues around here…
  • SECRET AVENGERS #36 – I honestly thought #35 was the series finale before reading it, but I’m looking forward to the real final issue and the conclusion to Rick Rememder’s Descendants storyline.
  • STAR WARS #1 – I’ve tried a few of Dark Horse’s other Star Wars series and they haven’t really been for me. Brian Wood writing the characters from the original trilogy is worth a look.
  • SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1 – Lots of chatter about this one and I’m hoping to avoid having anything spoiled. I didn’t hate the ending to Amazing Spider-Man but I don’t know that this is a Spider-Man I want to read about.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #23 – I don’t think I’ve read this since issue #20. I’m not crazy about the series but one of the more appealing elements is Kitty Pryde. In the five issues of All New X-Men that have shipped, I can tell that’s going to be the better place to see her story so the days of this title being on my list may be numbered.
  • X-MEN LEGACY #4 – Mike Del Mundo’s covers for this series might be enough to keep it on my list, but I did like what I read in the first two issues.

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.
