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.

The Pull List! July 29, 2009

In The Pull List! on July 27, 2009 at 3:17 pm

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.

"Wednesday Comics" #1 Review

Wednesday Comics #1

Wednesday Comics #1

DC’s been doing the weekly thing for about 3 years now.  “52” was a bit slow in the second act, but ulitmately a damn good series.  “Countdown/Countdown to Final Crisis” was kind of a wreck.  And I dropped “Trinity” after about 5 issues.

They’re giving it another go with “Wednesday Comics“.  I’ve been trying to put words to this review for a while, and I simply can’t.  15 characters by 15 creative teams, in 15 one page stories told in the style of the Sunday funnies.  The teams they have working on this book are simply top notch.  They’ve tapped talents the like of Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Neil Gaiman, Jimmy Palmiotti, Karl Kerschl and more.  Even Dan Didio is getting in on the action with “Metal Men”.  There’s not a lot to say other than its really, really, really good.  And its only 12 weeks long, meaning DC may have finally learned their lesson about how long a good story lasts.

There’s not a lot I can say about this issue.  Either this review would go on for an eternity as I ramble about each story, so I’m gonna say this instead.  Buy this book now.  Its that good, and you owe it to yourself.  If you want to know more about a specific story, leave  a comment about what you want to know, and I’ll reply as quickly as I can.  Hopefully, before next week, I’ll think of some way I can do this that won’t take you all day to read.

Wednesday Comics” #1 gets an A for being just damn awesome.  And for those who are wondering, the two I’m most excited about are easily the suspenseful “Batman” tale by Azzarello and Risso, and the classic feeling “Flash” story by Kerschl and Fletcher.
