The Pull List! Week of June 24, 2009

In Comic Reviews on June 21, 2009 at 10:25 pm

Good lord! Marvel comics must be hemorrhaging money. In addition to having three times as many titles as DC does on this week’s Pull List, over a quarter of those titles are new releases or title changes related to the “Dark Reign” event that, let’s face it, most people wish would end! Its a pretty big list this week, Marvel comes in on top with 30 titles, while DC puts out 11 titles. Hey, quality over quantity folks. Don’t forget: just because it isn’t on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good.

REVIEW Superman/Batman: "Mash-Up"

Superman/Batman: Mash-UpSuperman/Batman #60-61: “Mash-Up”, Pts. 1 & 2

Writers: Michael Green & Mike Johnson

Art: Francis Manpul

Despite Bruce Wayne being dead in the core DC Universe, they’ve daftly found a way to keep him alive, by continuing to use Bruce Wayne in flashback stories that were never told in titles such as “Batman Confidential”, and in out of continuity tales that exist just to make the fans squee and to give slash writers something to, well, write about.  For those people, we have “Superman/Batman”, and to really make the slashers happy, we have “Mash-Up”, in which the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight find themselves encountering a world comprised of hybrids of the people they know.

I reformatted the computer recently, and don’t have everything back in place yet. So, no video pull list right now! We’re doing it up old school today, kids. Don’t forget, Captain America #600 comes out Monday instead of Wednesday, and just because its not on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good.

So here we are with another installment of my version of this week’s Pull List. If you’re looking for a list that is insufficient and meager compared to Christophers’, you’ve came to the right place. But as usual, if you want a more informative list, check out his (especially this week since it’s a video). Here we go.

VIDEO: The Pull List! Week of May 28, 2009

In The Pull List! on May 25, 2009 at 11:00 am

So this week, I decided to try something new! Your Pull List is now in a convenient, bite size format, in the form of the video below. Its still pretty experimental, but the goal is to start including a lot more video content, since its much easier to digest than long winded articles…though, don’t get me wrong, there will still be plenty of written articles and reviews; we simply don’t have the time or resources to do videos of everything at this stage.

Hope you enjoyed it! Leave a comment and let us know what you think for future episodes.
