Pull List Analysis for the Week of May 23, 2007

Filed under: Pull List Analysis — David Uzumeri @ 12:11 pm

Small offering this week. List is after the jump, as always.

DC

Countdown #49 $2.99
Dan DiDio and editorialThe Monitors are here to clean up the Crisis’s cosmic mistakes! Mary Marvel acts like a completely unsympathetic nutjob! Mike Marts swears everything we think was a mistake was planned from the beginning and misuses the word “subtle” some more! COUNTDOWN!

Infinite Crisis!Infinite Crisis Audio CDs Part 1 $19.99
You have to be fucking kidding me.

Editor’s Note: No we are not.

Justice League Of America Vol 2 #1 4th Ptg $3.99
See above. Isn’t the trade paperback out?

7323_400×600.jpgSpirit Vol 6 #6 $2.99
Darwyn Cooke wraps up his first six issues of what is easily the best monthly book DC is publishing. The medium of comics at the top of its game.

7324_400×600.jpgSupergirl And The Legion Of Super Heroes #30 $2.99
This should be interesting. Mark Waid and Barry Kitson wrap up their once-great Legion run six issues early while Barry Kitson runs screaming from DC to Marvel to pencil a book that’s already under legal attack because there’s already an RPG named “Champions”. The future of this book is in complete limbo — Tony Bedard was brought on to finish Waid’s storylines since he couldn’t bear to continue the book without Kitson, and my understanding is that the original plan was to put Jim Shooter on the book. But Jim Shooter left. And now this book has no future. And the pre-Crisis incarnation of the Legion is showing up in JLA/JSA and Countdown as we speak. Oh, but these guys are showing up in Brave and the Bold and Action Comics #850. What the hell is going on?!? Does DC even know?

Superman Batman #35 $2.99
The first post-52 appearance of the Metal Men, other than Justice League #1. Except that apparently in this book Superman and Batman don’t know who Will Magnus or the Metal Men are. Which makes no goddamned sense. Also, thrill to the art of Alex MilnePat Lee, who somehow keeps getting hired despite telling the artists he farms his pages off to things like “DC pays less than Top Cow.”

Wetworks 9Wetworks Vol 2 #9 $2.99
Mike Carey’s last issue of Wetworks. J.M. DeMatteis & Joel Gomez come on with the next issue, but blog posts by Whilce Portacio indicate that after #13 or 14 or so the writing is definitely on the wall for this book. It hasn’t garnered strong reviews at all, so this is understandable, despite the fact that Carey tends to be loved by most reviewers. Yet another Worldstorm casualty, I guess.

Wonder Woman Vol 3 #9 $2.99
Jodi Picoult’s second-to-last issue, and Terry Dodson’s last. At this point we’ve gone straight from “lol fish out of water” antics to full-bore Amazons Attack tie-in. This book is desperately flagging and in need of help; we’ll see if, at least on a sales level, Gail Simone can provide that.

Marvel

capa26.jpgCaptain America Vol 5 #26 $2.99
FINALLY. This issue was delayed a month because they wanted to leave room for Jeph Loeb’s Fallen Son project, except that that book then got so late that it went past this issue. At least they didn’t re-delay Cap 26 in response. This book is riding a crescendo of attention and praise and isn’t likely to slow down, so if you’re not on board so far preorder the Captain America Omnibus coming out in September and get on board for the most controversial and consistently excellent book in superhero comics. This is Brubaker’s starmaker.

Doctor Strange Oath TP $13.99
This was the best superhero miniseries of last year. If you missed this the first time around, grab it now — Brian K. Vaughan’s street cred should carry the measly $14 purchase. Even if you don’t give a shit about Dr. Strange, this book is practically guaranteed to make a believer out of you. I grinned like an idiot throughout every issue of this miniseries.

ff546.jpgFantastic Four Vol 3 #546 $2.99
Galactus, Devourer of Worlds versus one black dude with a bunch of gadgets. Galactus is fucked.

Heroes For Hire Vol 2 #10 $2.99
This book remains on life support until it gets what has to be its last chance with the World War Hulk tie-ins (five issues’ worth, I believe). I don’t think this is going to last much longer.

Irredeemable Ant-Man #8 $2.99
This is also selling abysmally, although it’s not such a bad book. I’m not a huge fan of Kirkman’s writing — it tends to push fanboy buttons a little too much for my taste — but he definitely has his fans, and this is an interesting and different book that I have to admit enjoying. I’d be sad to see this one go, even if it isn’t totally my thing.

xmen199.jpgX-Men Vol 2 #199 $2.99
All-out war in Cable’s island nation of Providence, as well as the wrap-up to Carey’s first year on X-Men and the lead-in to the supposedly ballbusting X-Men #200 and X-Men: Endangered Species one-shot. Marvel’s been teasing a major X-event for a while, and the buildup is mostly in this book.

  1. Wow, the bulk of that Infinite Crisis audio trailer is generic punching, grunting, and exploding sound effects. Really makes me want to lay down 20 bucks for, what, half the story, maybe?
