Hopefully the rapidity of this week’s posting makes up for the tardiness (and paltriness) of the last one. If not, oh well… the weather is glorious and a long week(end) of stress ended last night for me, so I’m happy to have the chance to relax a bit today. This week saw the continuation of Gothtopia in Birds of Prey #28, the return of Kaine and Aracely in New Warriors #1, and the continuation of three other favorites of mine in Morning Glories #37, Uncanny X-Men #17, & X-Men #11. Oh… and of course Deadpool: The Gauntlet #7.

Apologies for taking so long, but graduate school does indeed take priority and this week that priority has precluded a formal update here. So I’m just going to provide a midnight hour, very barebones list of last week’s reads:
- Injustice Year Two #3 [3/5]
- For some reason, this series just isn’t grabbing me like it used to.
- Deadpool: The Gauntlet #6 [4/5]
- All-New X-Men #23 [4/5]
- All-New X-Factor #3 [5/5]
- She-Hulk #1 [4/5]
- I’m still not sold on the art, but this was more enjoyable (and unique) than I expected.
- Batman #28 [5/5]
- A bit light, but truly exciting on multiple fronts. Probably disappointing for Harper Row haters.
- Batgirl #28 [3/5]
- I really liked Wanted, but I find this Silver character rather lackluster.
- Legenderry #2 [4/5]
- Astro City #9 [5/5]
- Fatale #20 [5/5]
- The first issue of the final arc. GO READ THIS SERIES NOW.
As soon as they dropped the Level Two Snow Emergency down to Level One, I dug my car out of last night’s wintery deposit and braved the inconsistently-plowed roads to make it to the Laughing Ogre. At the forefront of my mind was, finally, Ms. Marvel #1, but that wasn’t all I picked up. This week also brought with it X-Men #10.NOW, Detective Comics #28, Revelations #2, and DC Comics Presents: Harley Quinn #1. Toss in Deadpool: The Gauntlet #5, and you’ve got a small but decent week to talk about.

By all rights this should have been a short list, but I lack restraint. So I bought a few unexpected issues after retrieving my week’s pull. In addition to finishing off the Bendis/Maleev Daredevil Ultimate Collection trades (volumes one through three) and the Brubaker/Phillips Incognito (the latter of which might end up reviewed sometime, if I have the chance), this week I read Guardians of the Galaxy #11.NOW, Avengers Assemble #23.INH, Catwoman #27, Fables #137, Inhumanity #2, Deadpool: The Gauntlet #4, Dead Boy Detectives #1 and #2, and Li’l Sonja #1.

This probably would have been written earlier had I not spent my time yesterday reading the Daredevil Ultimate Collection (Bendis/Maleev) Volume 1, which was fairly incredible (especially the “Wake Up” arc, which floored me and legitimately made my eyes water). But that’s tangential. As for single issues this week, I pulled All-New X-Men #22.NOW, X-Men #9, Birds of Prey #27, All-New X-Factor #2, Li’l Bionic Kids #1, Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Two #2, and Deadpool: The Gauntlet #3.

It has been a pretty busy week for me, so you’re getting this a bit later than I wish (but hey, good thing I changed the naming system, eh?). This week I pulled All-New X-Men #21, Uncanny X-Men #16, Batgirl #27, Velvet #3, Astro City #8, Li’l Battlestar Galactica #1, and Deadpool: The Gauntlet #1 — twice — & #2.

Okay, so the name is a bit of a joke at Marvel’s expense (seriously, how many times can you rename and reboot things?) but I decided that henceforth I’d rather just number these rather than use the date in the title, especially since I very rarely actually read or write on the actual release date. It also gives me an excuse for tossing in the occasional reviews for things not released on a given week if I so choose (for example, I’ve tossed in brief scores for last week’s unreviewed reads).
With that housekeeping out of the way, I present the first Weekly Pull of 2014! Continue reading “Weekly Pull #1.NOW”
