My Latest Pull List – February 20th, 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 again this Wednesday, but there’s a strong possibility I’ll only be bringing home seven.

  • AVENGERS #6 – I liked where Jonathan Hickman‘s Avengers series started, but I’m not crazy about the single character focus of the last two issues. They’re not bad stories by any means, but it’s not exactly what I’m looking for and this issue featuring Captain Universe appears to me more on the same.
  • CAPTAIN MARVEL #10 – I’ve fallen very far behind on my reading for this book, but I know I’m going to want to read it once I make the time.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1 – I’m really not sure about this title. The upsides are that Geoff Johns has been slowly developing the foundation for the book in the pages of Justice League, I’m a big fan of David Finch’s artwork, and the solicit claims this is where Trinity War begins. The downside (and it’s a big one) is that I don’t really care about any of the characters on the team.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #17 – Throne of Atlantis comes to an end and I really need to catch up if Trinity War is on the horizon.
  • NOVA #1 – I don’t know what to make of this one. I enjoyed the last Nova series, but this one features a different lead character so that’s not much to go by. The new Nova’s appearance in AvX was fleeting, but not anything that would turn me away. The only thing that stands out as a potential problem is that his identity seems to be a bit of a mystery and I just don’t trust we’ll see a satisfying payoff on a mystery from Jeph Loeb. I did enjoy his last outing with Ed McGuinness for Avengers: X-Sanction, even if the timing of Cable’s return before AvX didn’t make a difference in the event.
  • SAGA #10 – Another strong issue in the series. I particularly enjoyed the opening scene.
  • SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #4 – It’s likely I won’t be picking this up today, but I’m still debating it. I gave the series three issues to sell me and I think it may have been two too many. The main reason I’m considering staying with it is the indication from advanced solicits is that the current Spider-Man/Doctor Octopus story will be resolved by issue #9, but that’s no reason to buy a bunch of issues I’m not into.
  • X-FACTOR #252 – The Hell on Earth War continues and a lot of combustable elements from the last year of X-Factor stories are colliding. It’s made for a decent arc so far.

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.
