My Latest Pull List – June 4th, 2014

Posted by under *like, Comics |

Eight books on my list and unfortunately not much time to talk about them. I worry for what that suggests for my reading time… Have a great week, everyone!

  • ALL-NEW X-FACTOR #9 – It’s not as challenging as a weekly schedule, but the bi-weekly shipping of the All-New Marvel Now line makes it so easy to fall behind. I’m not quite up-to-date here, but I love Peter David’s new direction for X-Factor.
  • AMAZING X-MEN #8 – I couldn’t be more excited for the return of Craig Kyle and Chris Yost to the X-Men line, even if the first issue features a Wolverine/Wendigo story.
  • AMAZING X-MEN ANNUAL #1 – I’m committed to the Amazing X-Men title, particularly with the new creative team. This was an issue I’m seriously considering skipping though. Sal Larooca’s art would have held a lot of appeal at one time, but even that isn’t enough to make this a “must buy.”
  • BATMAN ETERNAL #9 – OK. A weekly title is just too much for my reading schedule. I like that DC is delivering a weekly dose of Scott Snyder’s Batman, but I’d enjoy it a lot more if I had time to keep up. The main things keeping me on board are the promise that the main Batman series will tie into Batman Eternal after Zero Year, and the false hope that I’ll catch up before then.
  • CYCLOPS #2 – I still don’t believe there’s a real need for this title, but as expected I loved Greg Rucka, Russell Dautermann, and Chris Sotomayor’s first issue. I’ll be sticking with this title for the duration, which I’m assuming will come when young Cyclops rejoins the original five in the pages of All-New X-Men. Alexander Lozano’s cover art is an added bonus.
  • MAGNETO #5 – Much like Cyclops, I question whether the current line of solo X-Men titles are really necessary as these characters already get a lot of panel time. I wasn’t as taken with this series as I was with Cyclops, but it’s certainly winning me over. 
  • MOON KNIGHT #4 – Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey’s take on Moon Knight is quite frankly amazing. I’ve always been a fan of the character and this is shaping up to be a brilliant treatment of Marc Spector. The series so far has focused on single issue stories, but I’m expecting things to come together over time much like Ellis’ Secret Avengers and Thunderbolts runs. 
  • ORIGINAL SIN #3 – I’m not completely sold on what’s going on here given all of the obscure villains and space bullets, but I’m intrigued enough to continue and this will likely be the first book I read this Wednesday.

Weekly comic books are a big part of my life and I regularly post what I’ll be picking up each Wednesday along with cover artwork and previews courtesy of Comixology’s Pull List app.

Check back every week to see what’s on My Latest Pull List and share your thoughts what you’re reading this week.
