The Pull List! Week of April 29, 2009

In The Pull List! on April 28, 2009 at 1:00 pm

So here we are again. A new week, a new Pull List. Derk just finished up college for the semester, and my temp assignment just ended, so expect me to get the site back to its full running potential during this lapse. In the meantime, why not pick up some ad space to show off your website and help support ours? I’m also looking into launching a store so you can purchase official HomeWorld merchandise.

In the meantime, here’s this week’s Pull List! Legion of Three Worlds makes its return, as it edges closer to its grand finale, while an old friend from the X-Men’s past makes their shocking return. As always, this is just the list of purchases I recommend, but just because its not on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good! If you enjoy this article, leave a comment to let us know, or hit the button the left and leave us a DIGG.

Official Solicitation: “”Agent Orange” part 2! The prelude to “The Blackest Night” continues as the war of light explodes across the Vega System. It’s the Green Lantern Corps vs. the bizarre Orange Lantern Corps led by the most disgusting, filthiest, vilest being in the universe.

Official Solicitation: “Mon-El has agreed to be Metropolis’s new champion – unfortunately Metropolis wants nothing to do with him!

Dark Avengers #4Dark Avengers #4

Why You Should Read It: The Dark Reign has taken the concept of the Thunderbolts and multiplied it exponentially, creating one of the most intriguing concepts in comics today: the villains are The Avengers!

Last Issue: The Dark Avengers teamed up with Doctor Doom to battle Morgana le Fay, who sought to kill Doom for betraying her. As the rest of the Dark Avengers were being soundly beaten, Doctor Doom allowed Norman Osborn to use his Iron Patriot armor to utilize Doom’s own armor, sending the two back in time and to the stronghold of Morgana le Fay.

Official Solicitation: “”The Dark Avengers’ first mission shows Norman Osborn all the plusses and minuses of the choices he has made for his team. So changes must be made. Some come, some go, and not everyone is happy about it. Also, the Cabal reunites for the first time since the Dark Reign began, and they are REALLY not happy.”

Nova #24Nova #24

Why You Should Read It: With the rebirth of the Nova Corps and Richard Rider stripped of his title as Nova Prime, the book has taken twist after twist to craft one of the greatest space titles created to date.

As the Shi’Ar and the Kree’s cataclysmic battle explodes across the cosmos, Richard Rider is forced to fight the one opponent he never wanted to: the ancient power that made him Nova in the first place! Yes, it’s time for another of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s trademark jaw-dropping plot swerves! Plus: Please welcome new series artist Andrea DiVito (ANNIHILATION) to the book that Aint It Cool News says is packed with “twists and turns, thrills and scares, cool stuff and awesomely jaw-droppingly cool stuff!””

Uncanny X-Men #509Uncanny X-Men #509

Why You Should Read It: The X-Men’s move to San Francisco has redefined the band of heroes, the last of a dieing species. And as the pending Dark Avengers crossover and the fallout from Messiah War looms, what will happen next to the mighty mutants?

Last Issue: Northstar was offered a place on the team, as Madylene Pryor and her team of female villains stole the remains of Kwannon, the X-Man more commonly known as Psylocke.

Official Solicitation: “The X-Men get up to the delicate art of living as the Sisterhood plan their imminent demise. The Science Team gets to work, trying very hard not to kill one another first. Simon Trask gains traction in the California state legislature, muscling PROPOSITION X to an emergency ballot vote. If it passes, mutants past and present, powered and otherwise, won’t be allowed to breed… all this and a friend returns as a foe and ready for murder. Oh, things are getting ugly.”
