Pull List 7/25- 8/1
I’m falling too far behind on my reading! My apologies guys!! My addiction has grabbed hold of me again and I thought I had shook it. It’s a dangerous thing. It’s called Skyrim. I hope all of you forgive me for the lateness of this due to this wonderful addiction.
A lot of books to go through so we’re just going with scores and favorites at the end.
Books for 8/1
The Dark Knight #11- 8.5
Batman, Inc. #3- 8.0
Winter Soldier #8- 7.5
The Ultimates #13- 9.0
Before Watchmen: Comedian #2- 8.0
All-Star Western #11- 7.5
Green Lantern #11- 8.5
Aquaman #11- 8.0
Books for 8/8
Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe #1- 9.0
Hawkeye #1- 8.5
Detective Comics #12- (Main Story-6.0, Extra Story- 8.0)
Action Comics #12- 7.5
Before Watchmen: Nite Owl #2- 8.5
Swamp Thing #12- 8.5
Animal Man #12- 8.0
If I had to pick a top three of books it would have to be The Ultimates which features Cap finally returning ang kicking all kinds of ass, Deadpool in the beginning of a great series and the new Hawkeye series which is taking a different approach to the hero story and the art looks like Batman: Year One which is always a good thing.
For some reason, I just don’t know why, but Action Comics has not been clicking with me lately. I should love it. It’s Grant Morrison writing Superman but it just seems like he’s writing the character just to do it. I don’t feel any passion for it like with his run on Batman. He is leaving after issue 16 so let’s hope he has a big send off planned and a new writer can keep going up.
Rotworld got off to a great start with Animal Man and Swamp Thing heading down into the heart of the rot. Swamp Thing ended up being a bit better but just because the Animal Man issue was more of a setup. And the end of Swampy is truly a whoah moment.
Till next week….or next time depending on how well I keep up (sorry!)
