The Pull List! July 29, 2009

Well, folks, it’s that time again, where we take a look at the comics you need to pick up.  Marvel did exactly as we expected, dumping every single “Dark Reign” related book this week, as well as finally releasing the final issue of the easily forgotten “Ultimatum” event.  Meanwhile DC actually eased off it’s current event, “Blackest Night”, probably because it’s two strongest books, “Superman” and “Detective Comics” come out this week.  All in all, a somewhat disappointing week for the Marvel Zombies, but Johnny DCs are going to be foaming at the mouth.  Hit the jump to find out what’s notable this week, and remember that just because I didn’t put it on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good.

Gotham City Sirens #1

Union

Writer: Paul Dini

Artist: Guillem March

Colors: Jose Villarrubia

Paul Dini seems to be consuming the Batman universe whole.  Not only is he writing the new Streets of Gotham on-going, he’s also been given another go with the femme fatales of Gotham, characters whose current iterations are largely due to his work on Batman: The Animated Series.  And despite some ill will towards the initial previews, the good news is that Gotham City Sirens isn’t nearly as bad as you would think.

Detective Comics #854

Detective Comics #854

Elegy, Pt. 1 “Agitato”

Writer: Greg Rucka

Artist: J.H. Williams III

Colors: Dave Stewart

With “Batman Reborn” sweeping the DC Universe, the most drastic change has been in the much anticipated revamp of Detective Comics.  Kate Kane, first introduced in the critically acclaimed 52, takes center stage as the much neglected Batwoman.  Its a character that’s received a lot of fan support, but has only shown up in a few places and has yet to be really fleshed out as a charcter, aside from being “Renee Montoya’s ex-girlfriend”.
