The Weekly Pull List – MIDNIGHT EDITION.

For all you late-night cats out there, these are the comic books we at DTC are reading this week. But our list isn’t complete, we want to know…

What’s on YOUR Pull List?

  • Imperium #8
  • Lazarus #19
  • Material #4
  • Silver Surfer #14
  • Uncanny Season 2 #6

I don’t think I really know if or when Silver Surfer is going to end and I am 100% totally okay with that. Secret Wars be damned, I want more of this book forever!

I am nearly lost with the direction of Material. It feels like Pulp Fiction in the way that it is structured, but serialized, so each month I have to carefully remember the various plot lines to the story. But I don’t see this as a bad thing. I don’t think it’s wrong to pay extra special attention to this book because it reminds me of the heavy-laden themes within. It’s a monthly reminder than there is more to what is happening in my small bubble of the world.

Lazarus is the best book out there, everyone. Last month’s issue was a rush and with that ending? Whew! (Spoilers on the cover this month) I can’t ask for a better book. Check my full gushing rant this week on I Read Comic Books Episode 35.

  • Casanova: Acedia #4
  • Daredevil #18
  • Material #4

Another small week for me, but those are some solid comics. Daredevil is the book I’m most excited for, since this is the conclusion to Mark Waid’s fantastic run on the title. Obviously, I’m sad to see him and artist Chris Samnee leave, but they have been telling such a great story that I’m certain the ending will be spectacular.

  • Aliens:Salvation HC
  • Imperium #8
  • Nailbiter Vol 3

Although it’s been released in several trade/omnibus collections since it came out in 1993, one-shot Aliens: Salvation is getting the hardcover treatment.  There’s not much more to be said, beyond the team on this: Dave Gibbons wrote it, Mike Mignola drew it, and Matt Hollingsworth colored it…and it hardly gets better than that.  Throw in the fact that Mignola did a brand new cover for this printing, and it’s well worth it.

While it’s my only individual issue of this week, there’s no denying (now that I’m caught up) that Imperium #8 ought to be a goodie.  Toyo Harada has got it in his very powerful brain that Divinity would make a splendid addition to his team of baddies.  The problem?  Divinity isn’t really one for group activities…or being bothered at all, let alone, against his own will.  While it’ll be amusing if Harada finally realizes how much this recruitment is a futile gesture on his part…what if he succeeds?

Oh, Nailbiter.  I read it in trade, so my feelings on this book might be considered “dated” or “wrong” for those that read it monthly.  That being said, I’m still waiting for this book to expand into a larger mythos and a fleshed-out world.  If TPB Number Three still continues to be a gorefest at a plodding pace, picking up Vol 4 might be less of a “sure thing.”

Attention! Comics! And Comics! And Comics!
