Pull List Analysis for September 6, 2007

Filed under: Pull List Analysis — David Uzumeri @ 8:43 pm

We got a sweet delay until Thursday this week thanks to Labor Day and the resulting postal holiday. So.

7954_400×600.jpgInfinity Inc. #1
Peter Milligan & Max Fiumara

This is a really intriguing book for a number of reasons. First of all, Max Fiumara is a relatively unknown talent with a pretty strong portfolio and track record. Second of all, this is a really offbeat title from Peter Milligan, who excels at this shit far more than his more-widely-read mainstream work on X-Men and last week’s Batman Annual might make you believe. On top of all of that, it’s a 52 followup, and we’re about 3.5 to 4 on those (the .5 for Black Adam), so it’s in tall company. This could be a by-the-numbers superhero book or a unique, eclectic addiction to the DC Universe. It all depends on how much freedom Milligan gets.

7985_400×600.jpgMetal Men #2 (of 8)
Duncan Rouleau

The last issue of this was an incredibly pleasant surprise – a fun, far-out sci-fi epic with a taut emotional center. Rouleau’s art, while sometimes unpopular on other books, is a perfect fit on this material and the veteran artist’s mainstream outing as a writer was really impressive, effectively building on the vision of Magnus in 52. More than any other book with the credit, this one actually feels – in a good way – like the ideas had contributions from Grant Morrison.

7989_400×600.jpgOutsiders #50
Tony Bedard & Matthew Clark

This is really a #0 issue for next month’s new ongoing Batman and the Outsiders, with former writer Judd Winick going off to do Teen Titans East. It’s also, probably, a sort of epilogue to last month’s Outsiders: Five of a Kind “event.” As such, it’s likely to be a transitory issue where Bedard’s Batman continues to be more of a dick (I thought we were going to fix this problem?) and maybe lets Aquaman back in or something, who knows. Winick’s take on this book was at least entertaining in its shameless sleaziness; this new direction looks like another highway straight into Countdown hell.

J. Michael Straczynski & Joe Quesada

Oh snap, it’s the 400-pound-gorilla! The second genie! The most foreshadowed and hyped event since House of M #3! In all seriousness, this is easily the biggest release of the week in terms of visibility and, God knows, possibility for controversy. They should have published this at the same time as Zimmerman’s Rawhide Kid; I’d be interested to see whether they got more hate mail from Spidey-Marriage fans or gay-bashers. Anyways, this is the first part of the final chapter of Straczynski’s pretty damn epic run – six years, an impressive feat for the first mainstream work from a TV crossover – and it’s been hyped as having huge repurcussions for Spidey’s world, likely to “fix” Quesada’s “problem” with the marriage. Whether this is telegraphing of an obvious event or an elaborate fakeout remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt that this is going to be – at least in the short-term – a pretty important event, leading to the thrice-monthly Brand New Day initiative.

Dan Slott, Ty Templeton & Rick Burchett

The final issue of Slott’s fairly epic and character-reinvigorating run finally arrives before Peter David & Shawn Moll (could this be the beginning of Marvel stealing DC’s standout 52 pencillers much like they did with Seven Soldiers?) take over the book next month. Last issue, She-Hulk saved the regular Marvel Universe from being replaced by the Ultimate, and this issue appears to center around using alternate universe tourists to solve continuity problems. Methinks Slott has taken continuity humor too far.

Kaplan SAT ACT Van Von Hunter Vol 1 TP $9.99
Kaplan SAT ACT Warcraft The Sunwell Trilogy Vol 1 Dragon Hunt TP $9.99

I’d just like to mention that these are, from what I could gather, manga and videogame novels with SAT vocabulary words highlighted and sold by Kaplan. Honestly, I’d love to have been at the meeting where this was proposed. If fifteen- and sixteen-year-olds can’t learn SAT words without having them narrated by Bath’szfor, Grand Orc Wizard, our society is fucked.

  1. Unlike most of the Spider-Man fans out there, I’m not upset about what could possibly take place in One More Day. Until I see exactly how badly it’s going to screw with the character, I’m going to just sit back and see where it goes.

    Good post!
