Pull List Reviews for January 16, 2008

Posted by David Uzumeri

Hey, look, it’s my thoughts on this morning’s books! More, of course, after the fold. Booster Gold #6: Basically everyone has been looking forward to this specific issue, and I assure you, it doesn’t disappoint. The series’s high quality standard continues, it’s rather funny – it’s hard to review this book, because I just enjoyed […]

Pull List Reviews for December 28, 2007

This was an absolutely huge week for me, so there’s a lot here. Batman #672: If you were waiting for the part of the run where everything would go fucking insane and you’d think “Well, Jesus, NOW this is a Grant Morrison book”: It’s here. I’ve been enjoying this book a lot so far, but […]

Pull List Reviews for December 5, 2007

Uncanny X-Men #493: Brubaker still isn’t the best writer for this title, but the overall coolness of Messiah CompleX is beginning to eclipse that. This issue follows up satisfactorily on last week’s cliffhanger(s) and sets up the next issue rather well, but something still seems intangibly off about Brubaker’s handling of the characters. Still, it’s […]

This is a huge week. I’ve been sick these past two weeks but I’m back in action now. Let’s roll. Batman and the Outsiders #1Chuck Dixon & Julian Lopez This book has had, at different times, Judd Winick, Peter J. Tomasi, Tony Bedard and now Chuck Dixon attached on writing duties. So it’s gone through […]

Blue Beetle #20John Rogers & Rafael Albuquerque Blue Beetle, my favorite DC ongoing, ties in with Sinestro Corps War, easily the most intelligently-planned writer-driven crossover of the summer (which is much like winning the best evolutionary theory award at Bob Jones University), and somehow I’m still scared shitless for this book’s longterm success. Everyone loves […]

Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #57Tad 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 […]

Pull List Analysis for October 3, 2007: Special “Fuck You Steve Gerber” Edition

Action Comics #856Geoff Johns, Richard Donner & Eric Powell I don’t know what I’m enjoying more about this arc (the first issue and the preview of this one up on Newsarama): Johns and Donner’s tortured take on Bizarro or Eric Powell’s brilliantly appropriate art. I know it may sound like heresy, but I found Morrison’s […]

Not a lot new going on this week; books that you may or may not like continue to come out, and are in the middle of various arcs. I couldn’t think of anything to say about any Marvel books, so Pedro’s gonna pinch-hit on that beat. Batman #669 Grant Morrison & JH Williams III Blue […]

Catwoman Vol 3 #71 Will Pfeifer & David Lopez CHRIS: Will Pfeifer and a variety of talented artists have been putting out a solid book in Catwoman, and as near as I can tell no one has really noticed. After a year or so of stories involving improbably-cool-revamped-D-list-villains trying to get revenge on Catwoman by […]

CHRIS: Not a lot to talk about this week. A couple of new creative teams, a couple new series, but for the most part books are just chugging along — and speaking of chugging along, you may have noticed that there has been some slightly spotty output here at FBB. Part of the blame for […]

We got a sweet delay until Thursday this week thanks to Labor Day and the resulting postal holiday. So. Infinity Inc. #1Peter 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. […]

DAVID: Man, this is the smallest week ever. CHRIS: Agreed, New Comics Day Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody‘s wallet, although there are a lot of interesting products coming from without the Big Two for people who have a big Labor Day bonus burning a hole in their pocket. 52 Aftermath: The Four Horsemen #1 (of 6)Keith […]

Special Interference Note from Chris: David said pretty much anything I’d want to say about the books he’s spotlighted this week, so rather than going all Tag Team for y’all, we are going to play it like the originators, 95 South, and bring you a double a-side of metaphorical Miami Bass comics previewing! TORONTO, WHERE […]

CHRIS ECKERT: Whoomp, there it is — a Tag Team Pull List Analysis! Sadly, this is not a day simply for Miami Bass nostalgia… DAVID UZUMERI: Rest in peace, Mike Wieringo. Your work is going to influence generations of writers and artists to come. From everything I’ve read, you were too humble to realize your […]
