Pull List Analysis for June 27, 2007

Yo, David Uzumeri here to comment on new funnybooks again!

Blue Beetle 16

Blue Beetle #16
John Rogers & Rafael Albuquerque

Rogers comes back to Blue Beetle just in time to tie into everyone’s favorite weekly series, COUNTDOWN! This issue is set to feature the return of Eclipso to Earth, presumably so she can make Mary Marvel’s skirt EVEN SHORTER, but hopefully will also feature the blend of intelligent action, high-concept sci-fi and brilliant character interaction that has made this book so popular with its 20,000 readers. This issue could be a good starting-on point — I highly recommend everybody check out this critically acclaimed but unfortunately a sales disaster. This is a book WELL worth saving.

Sinestro Corps
Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special
Geoff Johns & Ethan Van Sciver w/Dave Gibbons

Well, DC’s biggest event so far this year begins here. Johns has likened this to the Empire Strikes Back to Rebirth’s Star Wars, and that seems like an accurate description — darker, more epic, continuing to reveal Johns’s extensive additions to the Green Lantern mythos. Also likely to be a sales success for DC — something the company badly, badly, badly needs.

Superman Batman #37
Superman/Batman #37
Alan Burnett & Dustin Nguyen

“Diniverse” alum Alan Burnett does his first comic work in this bizarre-sounding six-part “Torment” arc, set to feature (as this goes on) Darkseid, Killer Croc, the New Gods and Batman boning Orion’s wife. Burnett’s work in the DCAU proves that he gets these characters amazingly well — we’ll just have to see how this translates to the comic medium (probably pretty well). Worth a watch, especially if this heralds a continuing career for Burnett. Also, gorgeous Dustin Nguyen art.

Wonder Woman 10

Wonder Woman #10
Jodi Picoult & Paco Diaz

This lead-in to Amazons Attack finally hits its conclusion as, uh, I guess Wonder Woman cuts some Amazons up and fights with her mom some more. I really have absolutely no idea what DC was thinking with this arc, which was clearly aimed at the direct market (and isn’t likely to read well in trade) what with leading into a major event crossover and tying in with other books repeatedly. It didn’t do particularly well there; I guess we’ll see how the “Picoult experiment” does in bookstores when the hardcover comes out later this year.

Daredevil #98
Daredevil #98
Ed Brubaker & Michael Lark

Gladiator vs. Milla vs. Feminist comic blogs! Will Marvel’s controversial preview information lead to yet another HTTP POST to the Women in Refrigerators website, or will Brubaker amaze us all again? Find out here!

X-Men #200
X-Men #200
Mike Carey & Humberto Ramos w/Chris Bachalo

Also featuring the first Endangered Speciesbackup by Mike Carey and Scot Eaton, this double-sized issue features the X-Men fighting a fuckload of Marauders, and Mr. Sinister. This landmark issue promises to contain a few shocks and thrills, as well as some rather controversial art (due to fan displeasure with Humberto Ramos’s latest style) and hopefully the same thoughtful, intelligent, well-planned writing Mike Carey has made use of this entire run.
