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.
Last week’s “break” with only seven new books waiting for me will be completely erased tomorrow. If the shipping lists are accurate, there are eleven new books on my list this week. I can’t believe I’ll be alone in this being a huge week.
- ALL NEW X-MEN #9- This book has been great since page one and hasn’t really let up. Stuart Immonen returns this issue and I’m not gonna lie, reading “the original five get new costumes” in the solicit has this at the top of my reading list.
- AVENGERS #8 - Another title that’s been hitting a lot of high notes since its launch. Things are unfolding a bit slowly, but Jonathan Hickman rarely disappoints.
- CABLE AND X-FORCE #6 - I’m still not completely sold on this title, but I’ll keep coming back for Cable and Hope. Last issue went a long way to give some much needed perspective to what has been happening so far.
- CAPTAIN MARVEL #11 - I’m woefully behind on this series. Joe Quinones‘ cover for this one looks great.
- DOCTOR WHO: PRISONERS OF TIME #3 - Last issue gave a bit of an indication of what’s happening with the Doctor’s former selves, but with 11 Doctors and 12 issues it can’t continue the single issue treatment of each one without more threads pulling things together. I like seeing the old faces, but I don’t want this to wind up as only two issues of multi-Doctor team up.
- JUSTICE LEAGUE #18 - Still playing catch up.
- NEW AVENGERS #4 - Can’t wait to read what’s next here. Jock’s cover is incredible!
- NOVA #2 - I enjoyed the first issue of this series, but I wasn’t sure about continuing with it. The second issue falling in a big week does not help its chances of staying on my list.
- SAGA #11 – Brian K. Vaughan and Fioan Staples’ Saga gets a lot of well deserved praise each month. This issue should be no different.
- X-FACTOR #253 - The Hell on Earth War continues to bring Peter David’s plot threads together, and last issue’s cliffhanger was just the latest unexpected twist.
- X-TERMINATION #1 - I’m not reading any of the titles involved in this crossover regularly (Age of Apocalypse, Astonishing X-Men, and X-Treme X-Men), but I did follow all of them at one point. The advertising has captured my attention, and the connection to Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force has this on my list.
