The Pull List! Aug. 8, 2009

In The Pull List! on August 3, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Another week, another pull list!  Not a lot to say this month, so let’s just dive right into it.  It’s fortunately another week light on Dark Reign related books, while DC continues to push the World Without Superman arc.  Remember to check the websites of each book’s publisher for more information, and don’t forget that just because it isn’t on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good!

Also, big thanks to Marron over at Avengers Tower for the shameless plug; you can find what she’s picking up this week by clicking here.

I’m not ready for Steve Rogers to come back

There, I said it.  I got it out of the way.  I’ve enjoyed Bucky!Cap, and I think Steve’s death has been a poignant moment in Marvel history that deserved a bit more.  He was doing fantastic as a presence in the Marvel Universe.  He’s been dead just over 2 years now, a lot longer than it seems  But I’m just not ready for Steve Rogers to come back

That said, Captain America: Reborn?  Might just change my mind.  Spoilers within! Read the rest of this entry »
