The Pull List: Must Read Comics of 11/14/12

Posted on the 13 November 2012 by House Of Geekery

Batgirl

Batgirl #14

By: Gail Simone and Ed Benes

Publisher: DC Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: I haven’t been really liking Batgirl series. I think Simone has a problem filling up the pages with too much narrative. It s a visual medium, so I wish she would “show us” more than “tell us.” Granted, Batgirl and the Joker have about as much history as Batman and the Joker does, so too see her face off against him is too good to pass up.

Joker

Suicide Squad #14

By: Adam Glass, Fernando Dagnino, and Ken Lashley

Publisher: DC Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: Another person I was really looking forward for Joker to reconnect with beside Batgril is Harley Quinn, who has been a series regular on Suicide Squad. Otherwise, I probably would not recommend this book that seems fairly directionless right now.

Locke and Key

Locke & Key Omega #1 (of 7)

By: Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez

Publisher: IDW Publishing

Price: $3.99

The Lowdown: Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) started the story of the Locke family back in 2007 becoming one of the most exciting non-DC/Marvel books out there, and the end starts here with the last 7 issues. It is kind of sad to see the story end, but it is also really exciting. The ending could make or break your legacy in the industry, and it is always better on your own terms.

Robert Kirkman

Invincible #97

By: Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley

Publisher: Image Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: The countdown to issue #100, where they keep teasing that something big is going to happen, continues. This one is a flashback to the origin of Zandale Randolph, otherwise known as Bulletproof and currently crime-fighting as Invincible while Mark Grayson heals up.

Saga

Saga #7

By: Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Publisher: Image Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: Saga returns! Saga #6 was released back in August, and I have been missing this book. It is such a unique vision with a narrative style that is simple and quick that never compromises emotional impact and development. This has and always will be a must read for me.

I should also mention that Image Comics really stockpiled this week with all their great books. Not only are Saga and Invincible hitting the shelf, but so is Walking Dead, Hack Slash, Peter Panzerfaust, and Thief of Thieves all of which have at some point made my list and ai guarantee will make it again.

X-Men

All New X-Men #1

By: Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Price: $3.99

The Lowdown: Modern day Beast travels to the past and gets the original line-up, including a much less beastly version of himself, to come to the future. It should make for an interesting look on where the X-Men should have gone and where they actually ended up. I love Immonen’s art, but unfortunately. Bendis can be pretty long-winded. Either way this X-Men book should be good for a read.

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four #1

By: Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: My experience with Matt Fraction revolves around the awesome Immortal Iron Fist and the awesome Hawkeye. Both of which are awesome for their low-scale Marvel Knights feeling. I am excited to see where Fraction goes with the more epic-scoped Fantastic Four. I mean, I know he has worked on Iron Man and Thor, but I didn’t read them. Either way, I am sure he is up to the challenge.

Thor

Thor God Of Thunder #1

By: Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Price: $3.99

The Lowdown: Here is another book part of the Marvel Now renumbering. If you always wanted to read Thor, here ios your moment to jump on.

X-Men

X-Men Legacy #1

By: Simon Spurrier, Diogenes Neves, Mike Del Mundo

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Price: $2.99

The Lowdown: Legion has always been an annoying character to me. He had the very over-used cliche of multiple personality disorder and just so happened to be a villain even though he was the son of one of the most righteous heroes the Marvel universe has ever seen. This brand new start to X-Men Legacy (which is a title I always hated, just call if something else) will star Legion trying to overcome his own demons and embrace his father’s true intention in the wake of his death.
