Pull list 05/06/13 the "not so much Big Two as Big Who" edition

As our time with out current suppler / LCS winds down, so does our list of books. Now that Wrath of the First Lantern (or whatever the latest Green Lantern universe event was called, we are down to a very small number of DC books, and were it not for Marvel bringing out Kick-Ass 3, they wouldn't even show on the list at all this week.

Image once again reign supreme as my favourite publisher, a trend that I anticipate will continue as we wend our way into the murky waters of finding a new weekly supplier. I swear, reading / buying comic books is worse than having a drug habit! On which unsavoury note, here are the weeks books...

DC

Green Lantern #21 

DYNAMITE

Garth Ennis Red Team #3

IDW

Colonized #3 

Locke & Key Omega #5

IMAGE

68 Jungle Jim #3 

Bedlam #7

East Of West #3

MARVEL

Kick-Ass 3 #1

INDYS

Uber #2 

Herobear And The Kid Special #1

Pull list 30/5/13 - the "delayed because of another bank holiday" edition

Thanks to a combination of the bank holiday and my lcs having the worst courier company in the world, this weeks book have been delayed by a day.

The entire world seems to be looking forward to the new Brain Wood take on the (all female) X-Men, but I will be totally honest and admit I am only getting it to make sure that my run of Skottie Young baby variant covers is complete! If I enjoy the first issue then I'll pick up the first trade when it comes out, but I'm not going in with any expectations.

On with the list then...

Dark Horse:

Dragon Age Until We Sleep #3

DC:

Justice League Of America #4 

IDW:

Danger Girl Trinity #2 
My Little Pony Micro-Series #4 Fluttershy

Lost Vegas #3 e

Pull list 22/05/13 - the "Lantern heavy" edition

It's almost like the old days looking at this weeks picks, eleven new books coming out!

It should be a good week for MrGiantwoman, he has four new DC books this week, plus new Deadpool and the second issue of the bizarre (but rather good) Miniature Jesus.

From my point of view Revival is one of those books that just keeps getting better and better, so I'll be settling in with that (and maybe a cheeky glass of wine) this evening.

DC

Batman Lil Gotham #2

Flash #20 

Green Lantern New Guardians #20 (Wrath Of The First Lantern Tie-In)

Green Lantern #20 (Wrath Of The First Lantern Tie-In)

Red Lanterns #20 (Wrath Of The First Lantern Tie-In)

Image

Five Ghosts Haunting Of Fabian Gray #3

Miniature Jesus #2

Revival #10

Marvel

Deadpool Vol #10

Indys

Adventure Time #16 

Adventure Time Fionna & Cake #5

Pull list 15/05/13 - the "my money saving plan is finally working" edition


So, finally the pull list is down to a manageable number of titles, and I can stop despairing at the size of the "to be read"  long box, and actually start reading some of them!

Fingers crossed this will mean a few more articles coming up on here in the near future.

Saving money may have just been ruined though, as I've been offered a ticket to MCM at the end of the month, and I can't decide whether to trust my brain and pass on it, or to use my normal approach and grab it with both hands. Hmm...

While I ponder, here are this weeks books:

DC

Fables #129

Dynamite

Bionic Man vs Bionic Woman #5

IDW

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic #7 

Image

It Girl & The Atomics #10

Pull list 08/05/13 - the "I wonder if the bank holiday will mess up the delivery this week" edition!

After a great time at Free Comic Book Day in London, visiting Orbital and Forbidden Planet - managing not to pick up any free books in the process - it is a nice quiet week for myself and MrGiantwoman, which might be even quieter if the delivery hasn't turned up today. Only one way to find out!

Without further ado, here is today's list:

DARK HORSE

Star Wars (Dark Horse) #5

DC

Green Lantern Corps #20 (Wrath Of The First Lantern Tie-In)

Justice League Of America #3 

IDW

Rocketeer Hollywood Horror #4

Chin Music #1

MARVEL

Deadpool #9

INDEPEDENTS

Uber #1

Plus of course an FCBD titles that we asked them to get for us!

Pull list 01/05/13 - the "calm before the storm" edition

A nice quiet week, which I can do the before the Green Lantern 1:1 scale replica I am expecting some time in the next couple of weeks turns up. The LCS got a job lot of Green Lantern trades in last week and somehow (no names mentioned MrGiantwoman...) a number have ended up in our box. A quiet day today should give me a chance to grab a couple of those, as I need some GL inspiration for a potential cosplay that is currently in the works...

Once again Image take the lead, although only two books this week are for me, and neither are Image, shockingly. 


DC

Fairest #15 - looking forward to reading Sean Williams new storyline.

Dynamite

Game of Thrones #14

IDW

Colonized #2

Image

68 Jungle Jim #2

Epic Kill #10

Pull list 24/04/13 the "Jupiters Legacy comes out at last" edition

Iron Man 3 comes out tomorrow. I have avoided all teasers, trailers, spoilers, photos, screenshots, you name it! As with Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man last year, I am going in to the cinema tomorrow with a totally clean palette, hoping for an awesome film experience with no preconceptions. It had better be good, I've got the whole day off work for it!

On the comic book front, "Jupiters Legacy" comes out this week. I am excited. That is all.
