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.
A relatively small week for me with a couple of huge releases! Seven new books in all including the starts of Batman: Zero Year and Superman Unchained.
- ASTONISHING X-MEN #63 - Astonishing is one of many titles I’ve fallen behind on in the last few months, but I’ve stuck with buying it. Phil Noto‘s “women of Iceman” cover suggests some interesting happenings inside. I think the Age of Apocalypse version has been running around in this title for the last few months following his time in the previous volume of Uncanny X-Force.
- BATMAN #21 - I don’t know that I’m seeking another event from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo‘s Batman, but I’ll take it. The recent two-part Clayface didn’t distinguish itself too favorably in my mind, but their longer format stuff is definitely keeping me around.
- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #3 - Steve McNiven‘s art is gorgeous and it looks like there’s some Sara Pichelli in this issue as well! Still on the fence about how long I’ll be continuing with the series, but so far it’s bringing me back.
- THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #12 - I’m a few issues behind and I think this might be my last issue until I catch up. It’s a bit hard to believe given how much I was enjoying this story at one point.
- SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1 – Scott Snyder teams with legendary artist Jim Lee to take on DC’s Kryptonian icon just in time for his return to the big screen in Man of Steel. If anyone can do something great with Superman it’s these two and this could be the strongest writer/artist pairing Lee has been part of since joining DC.
- UNCANNY X-FORCE #6 - This book doesn’t come to mind immediately when I think about the Marvel Now series I’m enjoying most, but it must be near the top of the list because I can’t wait for it to get to what’s next. Bishop, Spiral, the many faces of Fantomex, come on!
- WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #31 - I’m still way behind on this series and I wanted to catch up before this issue and the start of The Hellfire Saga. At least I have all the issues I haven’t read in one place now.
