The Pull List 3/28/12
We start out the big event with M.O.D.O.K. getting his ass kicked (again), Scarlet Witch thinking she’s a horrible person, Vision telling her she’s a horrible person and Hope Summers telling Scott to f*** off.
AVX Rd. 1
Scott acts like a complete tool the entire issue and manages to kick start a fight with The Avengers. Good going dick. Oh and the Phoenix is back to take over Hope and make things fun.
The Ultimates #8
Reed may have found a new ally (as if he needed one). Tony and Thor are taken hostage while the president decides to take the offensive on The City. Pretty good stuff.
After last month’s Mera side story we get back to more serious tones with Black Manta back to cause more problems and Aquaman trying to unravel the mystery of who sunk Atlantis. This is still one of my favorite books every month.
All Star Western #7
Jonah heads to NOLA, which still looks as dirty today as in western days, to search for Moody only to get sidetracked by some good old fashioned gladiator type bum fights. Love the story but the art gets on my nerves a bit.
The Dark Knight #7
Batman and Bane go at it one more time to finish up the new venom story and we learn the secret of White Rabbit and no she doesn’t magically become a real rabbit.
New creative team begins with the introduction of Helspont who went to mid 90’s villain school. Dan Jurgens is involved so that may explain a lot. Not a big leap in quality (so far).
Star Trek #7
Good beginning to a new story directly correlating with the movie and a very good twist ending. Looking forward to see where it goes.
Also I am going through American Vampire Vol. 3 so here are the quick scores for the first two.
Vol. 1- 9.5/10
Vol. 2- 9.5/10
Moral of the story kids? Scott Snyder is one of the best things going in comics today.
