My Latest Pull List – April 24th, 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.

Ten (maybe eleven) new books on the list for this Wednesday.

  • A+X #7 – Fairly certain issue #6 is where I’m planning to stop with this series, but I’ll give issue #7 a look at the store this week. The Giuseppe Camuncoli Iceman/Thor cover really caught my eye.
  • AVENGERS #10 – The incorporation of elements from the New Universe in this series took me by surprise, but the promise of Omega Flight in this issue somehow feels even more unexpected. As much as I’m anticipating what’s next I’d rank this third of the four Jonathan Hickman written books that made their way onto my pull list for today.
  • EAST OF WEST #2 – This series got off to a great start last month. I’m not really looking to add anything to my list, but this one is tough to pass up especially when it’s “Uncanny Hickman” week. Right now, this book is positioned at number two on the Hictogram.
  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2 – I certainly enjoyed the “point one” issue of Brian Bendis and Steve McNiven’s Guardians series more than issue #1 last month, though the bar was set pretty high. I still have a soft spot for Abnett and Lanning’s previous series, but I have high hopes for where this volume is headed.
  • JUPITER’S LEGACY #1 – A new series from Image by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely. The solicit promises this will be the “the superhero epic that all future comics will be measured by.” I don’t know about all that, but it’s certainly something worth checking out. Millar’s work isn’t always my thing, but I do like Quitely.
  • THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #11 – I need to catch up on my reading for this title. It fell from the top of my reading list around issue #8 and I’m finding myself missing it. As a result it falls to fourth of this week’s four Hickman titles, but that doesn’t mean it’s anywhere near the bottom of my reading list.
  • NEW AVENGERS #5 – This is honestly my favorite of the Hickman books shipping right now. It has an epic scope and it’s taking the concept of Marvel’s Illuminati into very unpredictable territory. The more conventional shipping schedule helps as I find myself with more time to consider each issue as I wait patiently for the next.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #7 – Rick Remender, the Apocalypse Twins, Kang, and Havok. I’m so happy to see this book arriving more regularly and the continuation from Remender’s Uncanny X-Force is an added bonus. This will likely be the first book I read today.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #5 – Frazer Irving joins Brian Bendis taking the artistic reigns from Chris Bachalo. I’m a big Bachalo fan, but this is a welcome transition if we can’t have him for every issue. Can’t wait to see the fallout from Cyclops’ recruiting efforts at the Jean Grey School.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #28 – I jumped in for the Age of Ultron tie in last week but I still have a number of issues to catch up on here. I’m contemplating stepping away from the series based on the last few that I’ve read and seeing Jason Aaron‘s recent reintroduction of Dog Logan.
  • X-TERMINATION #2 – Finishing out the alternate timeline crossover. Not much else to say as I haven’t read much of it yet.

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.
