Weekly Pull #7

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.

Weekly Pull #5

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.

Weekly Pull #4

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.

Weekly Pull #3

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.NOWX-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.

Weekly Pull #1.NOW

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”

All-New Weekly Pull: December 11+

Well, I warned you it’d be a while since you heard for me. Turns out graduate school is no joke when it comes to final season. That said, I did manage to do some reading over the past couple weeks. Just not a lot of writing about it. In lieu of a traditional Weekly Pull rundown, I’m just going to list all the comics I read since last time with a “score.” And maybe a note or two.
