Even by my looser standards of what I’m adding to my pull list, there’s not a lot to pick up this time. Here’s what I’m looking at this week.
- BATMAN BEYOND #2 – Dig some Beyond, yo.
- BATMAN ODYSSEY #6 – It’s truly been killing me that I haven’t been able to pick up Neal Adams’ new Batman work. I’ve been discovering that I haven’t really been interested in jumping into series that have been running for a while (that’s why Secret Six hasn’t made this week’s list, but maybe it should), but I’ll be on the lookout for every issue of this one.
- INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #500.1 – As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a sucked for anniversary issues, and this one is both priced at $3 and written by Matt Fraction. I’m curious to see how the .1 initiative plays out. In theory, if its just a signifier that the issue in question is the jump-on point for a new arc, I’m all for it. I’m hearing some rumblings that they’re just recap issues, though, which I’m not down with.
- JESUS HATES ZOMBIES LINCOLN HATES WEREWOLVES TP COLL – I just mention this because I feel the anachronistic team-ups/battles are feeling played out.
These books get added to my running pull list, which now has a few books I’ve been able to cross off thanks to a friendly hookup. All I’ll say is that Rick Remender is writing the hell out of Uncanny X-Force. I would NOT want to be Warren Worthington III last week. Also, stay tuned tomorrow, as I review the worst comic since Arsenal messed with a dead cat.
That’s it for me. What are YOU looking at?
