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!)

Read comics!!!

  1. Someone compared Deadpool’s creator, Rob Liefeld, with Jack Kirby: http://www.spandexless.com/2012/05/spandexless-reads-05-31-2012/. What do you think about it?
