Pull List Analysis for October 17, 2007

Posted by on Monday, October 15th, 2007 at 11:09:49 AM

8150_400×600.jpgAquaman: Sword of Atlantis #57
Tad Williams & Shawn McManus

The final issue of the run on Aquaman that came after Kurt Busiek’s. Williams is furiously wrapping up plot threads from his own run, Busiek’s run, Arcudi’s short run, Pfeifer’s short run, and hell, let’s throw in Marc Guggenheim’s initial two issues in comics while we’re at it. I don’t think it’s touching the disastrous Rick Veitch run, which is probably a good thing. Either way, this is tying up all the plot threads back to the sinking of San Diego, and I guess Aquafans (they exist, right?) should be sure to pick up this final issue as the new Arthur Curry swims off to the new Outsiders.

8152_400×600.jpgBirds of Prey #111
Tony Bedard & Jason Orfalas

Remember that awesome Graymiotti-penned hacker war from Countdown between Oracle and Calculator? Remember how fucking AWESOME that was? No? Well, here’s round two anyway.

8162_400×600.jpgCheckmate #19
Greg Rucka & Joe Bennett

Somehow, Greg Rucka manages to wade through the DC Universe’s Countdown-infested waters with grace, touching base with both the new Suicide Squad, Countdown and the upcoming Salvation Run without sacrificing his main story. Still one of the most consistently satisfying reads from DC.

8115_400×600.jpgDeath of the New Gods #1
Jim Starlin

I’m incredibly trepidatious about this storyline. On one hand, Starlin has some experience with the characters. On the other hand, basically nobody has gotten these characters right since Jack Kirby but Walter Simonson and Grant Morrison. I think this is likely a mercy killing… or, at least, a method to free the characters from the confines of the conflict set up by Kirby. I dunno what to think. I’m really curious, but… it could really, really, REALLY suck.

capa0.jpgCaptain America #31
Ed Brubaker & Steve Epting

Part one of “The Burden of Dreams,” counting down to the recently-announced new costume premiering in January’s #34. There’s no reason to think this storyline won’t continue being excellent and definitive.

mightyaveng.jpgMighty Avengers #5
Brian Michael Bendis & Frank Cho

No way. I think my eyes are lying to me. This is a great book, but it’s been hugely hurt by a multitude of delays straight out of the gate. Cho’s art has been impressive enough, but it sure as hell doesn’t justify the disgusting delays. Bagley can’t get here fast enough.

penance2.jpgPenance: Relentless #2
Paul Jenkins & Paul Gulacy

I liked the first issue of this way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way more than I thought I would. This isn’t aimless Paul Jenkins — he knows where he’s going with this story and what he wants to accomplish, and Penance is already progressing past the unbearably emo bullshit in Front Line. He’s still sick, but he’s improving, and it’s clear Jenkins has a larger arc he wants to get into here. I’m interested.

Full list after the jump.
