Another week and another pull list. Comic books are great, aren’t they?
Batman Superman #4
Guardians of the Galaxy #7
Indestructible Hulk Special #1
New Avengers #11
Superior Spider-Man #19
Uncanny X-Men #13
Well, Hawkeye. Do you remember the last time you read Hawkeye proper since the epic Pizza Dog issue? Me neither. It’s been that long. Now mind you, I am not disappointed at all about this. As a matter of fact, I am more than happy to wait a bit in order to maintain a sense of artistic continuity in the series. I’d rather see David Aja on the book indefinitely than to succumb to a rapid release schedule with many artists on board. And if Aja’s catching up means that Matt Fraction has more time to make books such as Satellite Sam and Sex criminals, I am a happy camper.
On the opposite side of the release spectrum, we have Superior Spider-Man. This is just about as solid a series as Marvel has now. There is talk of the Ock-Spidey status quo going away as we draw closer to the release of the next Spider-Man movie. I hope that is not the case. Spider-Man hasn’t been so exciting in a long time, so I don’t mind Ock-Spidey hanging around for an extended period of time.
Finally, we have Batman Superman hitting the shelves again. This is a weird series for me that spans both sides of the spectrum. On the one hand, I am reading an amazing book that blows me away with both the art and the story. On the other, I am reading a book that’s dialogue is odd and the art lacks detail and background work. I just hope I see the better side of the coin this week.
So what does your pull list look like?
