New Comics Day: Our December 18 Pull List

CHRISTA’S PULL LIST

Ghost #1 (Dark Horse)

1293282_ful

New series by Kelly Sue Deconnick. Auto buy every time.

Avengers Assemble #22 (Marvel)

1298763_ful

Speaking of Kelly Sue – Since I am temporarily without Captain Marvel I decided to try out her other Marvel series the other week. Though it was an Inhumanity tie in, it stands pretty well on it’s own. Plus it was Spider Girl, Spider Woman and Black Widow. This is definitely an Avengers series worth checking out

Harley Quinn #1 (DC Comics)

1298637_ful

I read issue #0 of this and think it could have potential. I like that Harley seems to break the fourth wall a lot in this series and I could easily see this becoming DC’s Deadpool if they play their cards right

Pretty Deadly #3 (Image)

1298719_ful

This is just Kelly Sue Deconnick week isn’t it?

Red Sonja #6 (Dynamite)

1299176_ful

My surprise favourite comic of the year!

Saga #17 (Image)

1298728_ful

Just read it. You’ll understand.

Umbral #2 (Image)

1298741_ful

The first issue of this was incredibly beautiful and I am a sucker for any sort of magical fantasy world. High hopes for this series.

X-Men #8 (Marvel)

1298828_ful

Part 2 of the Muertas story arc. Monet has joined the team and I’m personally excited to see an unfamiliar face on the team.

Young Avengers #14 (Marvel)

1298831_ful

Second last issue! If you’ll excuse me I’ll be over in the corner devouring an entire pint of ice cream.

ARDO’S PULL LIST

Harley Quinn #1

1298637_ful

Excited to see where this goes after issue #0…

Pretty Deadly #3

1298719_ful

I’m in love with this series. So good.

X-Men Vol. 4 #8

1298828_ful

I’m luke warm about this series. Hopefully it’ll find it’s tempo from the first few issues…

What are you reading?

Cover Comments November 2013 – DC and Dark Horse Edition

Welcome to cover comments! A monthly feature where we break down what we think are the best and worst covers the month has to offer.

Overall, it was a meh experience since most of the covers were neither terrible or great. That doesn’t mean I’d have an empty list! onward with the cover comments…

– Ardo

[DC COMICS]

BATWOMAN #25

Batwoman 25

GOR-GEOUS. I love J.H. Williams so much and this cover is STUNNING. I don’t read Batwoman but I can tell you that I’ll miss Williams on the book for this very reason. Since Williams was taken off the series at issue 25 rather than 27, I’m not sure if this’ll be the cover used but it gets a win regardless. A++++

BATGIRL #25

Batgirl 25

Ever since Alex Garner has been drawing the covers of Batgirl, I’ve been salivating at it’s beauty. I can say for a fact that this is probably the most gorgeous and stand out cover that DC has in the entire month of November aside from J.H. Williams’ Batwoman. Good job.

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #7

Adventures of Superman 7

I love this cover so much mostly because of the contrast between Superman and the train. Superman is drawn in this classic, Fleischer-esque style while the train is far more advance with it’s slow motion/blurring effect. Sometimes, harking it back old school can create a warm fuzzy feeling that’ll in turn make a stand out cover.

BIRDS OF PREY #25

Bird of Preys 25

This cover could have easily made it on my “hell yes” list if it wasn’t for that mouth. I don’t know why but that mouth looks so odd on someone engaging in a fight. it looks more like a “what’s going on….” mouth than a “hiiiii-yah” mouth. It’s distracting. Otherwise, I adore the color scheme. It’s so different and if it wasn’t for that awkward mouth, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

SUICIDE SQUAD #25

suicide squad

No. I refuse. Quite possibly the only cover that I’d cool terrible including both DC and Dark Horse.

No….

[DARK HORSE COMICS]

Ghost #1

Ghost #1

I like the color scheme and I like how this character is drawn. Not AH-MAZING but it’s pretty good.

The Occultist #2

Occultist_2

This is the second time Occultist got onto Cover Comments for the right reasons. Gorgeous looking cover. The richness of the colors are amazing and I’d buy this without having to know what it is (assuming I have cash to burn which I don’t sadly).

X #7

X_7

I like this cover because of the texture. I do enjoy seeing paint being used as a medium (assuming this is paint which i think it is) because it offers this depth to the art and you can get these cool effects with it too. Again, not an amazing cover but it was definitely one of the better ones over at Dark Horse.

I’m a bit disappointed with Dark Horse and DC in terms of covers. Hell, I’d even take really bad ones just so I’d have SOME THING to discuss. Maybe Christa will have a better time with Image and Marvel…

New Comics Day: Our October 30 Pull List

ARDO’S PULL LIST

Damian: Son of Batman #1 (of 4) (DC)

damian-son-of-batman

I fell in love with Damian as a character in the New 52’s Batman and Robin. and was really sad he was killed off. I’m intrigued by this new title and it doesn’t hurt that it’s a limited run.

The Double Life of Miranda Turner #1 (Monkeybrain Comics)

the double life of miranda turner

 

Another female led title from Monkeybrain! I’m excited.

I feel like it’s been awhile. Really looking forward to this one – it hasn’t let me down yet.

X-Men Battle of the Atom #2 (Marvel)

1286309_ful

It all comes down to this!

Nightwing Annual #1 (DC Comics)

1286126_ful

I’m actually not much of a Nightwing fan but I am a HUGE Batgirl fan. So I’m buying this for her.
