What’s on YOUR Pull List?

  • All-New X-Men #7
  • Fight Club 2 #10
  • Saga #35
  • They’re Not Like Us #12

Fight Club 2 is ending this week. I’m not sure if I’m upset… this book has constantly been edging towards “too-meta” and unsure of what it really is. I’m ready to see it through the end, but what that end will be is uncertain from where I’m sitting.

Saga is Saga. What else is there to say?

They’re Not Like Us continues to be the book I’m never quite sure of, but in a good way. Other books have rubbed me the same way (Rumble, EGOs), but there’s something different about this book.

  • Judge Dredd #4

An unusually small week for me. So far, IDW’s new Judge Dredd series has been fun, although it has a very different tone than the British version of the character seen in the pages of 2000 AD. Even still, Dan McDaid’s artwork is lovely, and I am interested to see where they take this story.

  • Saga #35

I should really get back to reading this series. I’ve been collecting the issues and setting them aside with every intention to read them, but I have yet to sit down and actually open them up. Hopefully this means that I can tear through the better part of a story arc in one sitting without having to deal with all that suspense and waiting nonsense.

  • RAI Vol 3: The Orphan
  • The Omega Men #10
  • They’re Not Like Us #12

Admittedly, this week was even shorter, before my volume of RAI (which was originally solicited for last week) found its way onto this week’s pull.  I still haven’t finished volume 2, but all you need to know is that it’s Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain, which is shorthand for the fact that it’ll be beautiful…but will also likely require multiple readings to “get” everything.  And I don’t mean that in a bad way, chalk it up to Kindt’s penchant for plotting alongside the fact that (until “4001 A.D. rolls around) he’s all by his lonesome in world-building the futuristic “Valiantverse.”

Omega Men has three issues to go, but given how issue nine ended…I can’t help but wonder if Tom King played the (somewhat inevitable) ace up his sleeve a little too early.  Then again, this series has subverted all expectations up to this point, and he’s a smart guy.  If anything else, the real question is whether or not DC Comics is going to be smart enough to “lock down” artist Barnaby Bagenda.  A question I fear was answered by the fact that I don’t recall his name being part of the “Rebirth” presentation.

I read They’re Not Like Us #11 two nights ago, and maaaaaaaan, was I lost.  I’m beginning to wonder if every book by Eric Stephenson (Nowhere Men being the other one) either requires a constant reference guide, or the willingness to only read it in trade.

  • Faith #3 (of 4)

I am really enjoying the Faith miniseries.  I hope that its popularity spurs Valiant on to make another, or more series along the same line.
