My Latest Pull List – July 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.

This was a tough week for determining exactly which new books were shipping to comic shops. There was a lot of conflicting information (for instance, the Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time issue included above did not actually arrive in stores), but it looks like I brought home 7 new books  today.

  • BATMAN SUPERMAN #2 – I’ve been limiting myself to following three monthly DC titles since the relaunch of the New 52, but this one is too good to pass up. Looks like I’m up to four at the moment with Batman, Superman Unchained, and Justice League. It doesn’t help that we’re currently in the throes of Trinity War across all of the Justice League books.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22 – I’m not terribly familiar with the characters starring in this title, and this Trinity War crossover issue will be my first of the series. It may not matter that I don’t know the characters given the way the Justice League took over the pages of Justice League of America last week, but maybe the principals with have a chance to say something. I’m also not crazy about the team being called the “Justice League Dark” and I’m surprised Wonder Woman is OK with it after her reaction to the existence and name of the JLA.
  • LAZARUS #2 – This book is amazing. I picked up issue #1 knowing nothing about it and just got to it over the weekend. As writer Greg Rucka describes, it’s plausible science fiction in a world based on an extrapolation of our own, and that’s exactly the kind of stuff I’m into. Looking forward to more.
  • NEW AVENGERS #8 – I enjoyed the first six issues of this series far more than #7, but with Marvel’s Infinity event right around the corner I’m sure that will change with this prelude issue.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #10 – I’m not sure I’m sold on the most recent Avengers/X-Men villain mashup this series has introduced. Red Skull/Xavier brain? OK. Kang/Apocalypse Twins? Absolutely! Four Horsemen featuring Grim Reaper, Sentry, Banshee, and Daken? That’s going to take a great story. I think the Sentry’s return is the biggest problem for me given the lengths involved in writing him out of the Marvel Universe during Siege. Also, I think it was hinted that Banshee stuck around after returning in Necrosha, so hopefully that’s addressed.
  • WHAT IF AVX #3 – Issue #2 just shipped last week, so I surprised to see this on the shelf today. Either way, the Jorge Molina cover is incredible.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #33 – This issue has been on my radar for a while mostly for the X-Men 50th Anniversary variant. Unfortunately, I’m many issues behind on this series with no sign I’ll be catching up anytime soon.

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.
