Wednesday Pull LIst

Not too much going on this week on the DC side.

DC:

JLA #6.  The reveal of the Catwoman “death” was as weak as you’d expect and I’m still not even entirely sure what the point of this series is. 

Animal Man #22:  The “Buddy as unlikely celeb” deal has been interesting and this remains a pretty fun book.

Vibe #6:  I thought they’d cancel it after 3 issues, so congrats on making is this far.  I’m consistently entertained by it, even though I’m kind of amazed it even exists.  This needs Steel popping up soon for all us JL Detroit nerds, though.

Brother Lono #2:  100 Bullets is of course one of my favorite series of all time, and this is more of it.  Big boobed nuns and Lono killing drug dealers in Mexico?  Take all my money.

I think Batman 66 is also out weekly, which is probably the title I’m most excited about recently.

Marvel:

All New X-Men #14

Avengers #16

Superior Carnage #1:  The Superior Foes debut was HILARIOUS, although this will likely be less on the light-hearted side.  I’ll give it a go even so.

Deadpool #13:  Deadpool goes back in Marvel history again, this time in Power Man & Iron Fist.  This should be epic.

Iron Man #13. I’ve been digging the Iron Man origin stuff, although I’m ready for him to get back to the Earth again.

Savage Wolverine #7.  Apparently they’re doing kind of an overhaul of the concept into a team-up book, which is too bad because there’s enough of those already and Wolverine is already in about 17 different teams at any given time to begin with.  I thought the Frank Cho Savage Land run at the beginning of the series was a pretty cool take on the character, and the current arc (although really funny) feels like it’s from a different series.  Oh well, much like the weather in Saskatchewan, if you don’t like one Wolverine series, just wait a day and you’ll have two more to choose from anyway.

  1. Superior Foes was so much fun. I didn't want to pick it up, but I'm glad I did. I'll be adding it to my pull.

    This week I'm picking up invincible, jla, Batman and Catwoman, animal man, the print version of Batman 66 and ff. The ending of the last issue of invincible was a great cliffhanger and I still love this series 104 issues in.

    Anyone read the most recent walking dead? The last two issues have been a fantastic one two punch after the series had been in a stalling pattern for a while. I honestly don't know what's going to happen next.

  2. I picked up a few things recently:

    1) Mouse Guard: The Black Axe. This is such a great, light fantasy series. I haven't had the chance to read it yet, but given how much I loved the first two books, I have know doubt I'll love this one.



    2) Saga Vol. 2: Probably hands down, the second best book on the market right now. If you haven't been reading it? SHAME ON YOU.


    3) Locke & Key Vol. 5: This however, is in my opinion, THE best comic on the market right now. Let's put it this way. Some months ago, I was short on funds to buy anything for myself. Shortly before, I had managed to scrape enough to buy Locke & Key Vol. 1. I became so enraptured with the world and the mythos that I actually pirated the rest just to read it. I have never, EVER done that with a comic before and I've been reading comics for over 20 years.

  5. Wait, they're doing print versions of Batman 66? Doesn't that kind of defeat the entire purpose of the series?

  6. They do print versions of almost all of their digital series. The print runs contain three issues or so of the digital series.

  7. Just downloaded my digital comics for the week, Brother Lono and Transformers: Regeneration 1 are the only books released this week I bought, but I got six other previous issues, including:

    Justice League of America

    Justice League Presents Vibe

    Supergirl

    Masters of the Universe



    Animal Man


    Wonder Woman


    I haven't even had time to read the books I downloaded last week, although I did just start reading Brad Meltzer's latest novel, The Fifth Assassin, released in January. I'm enjoying it so far.

  10. 66 is such a distinctly digital comic, with the motion effects and whatnot, that it just seems weird to put it on paper.
