Tracie's Pull List - Week of January 4, 2012
It's the first New Comics Day of the year and I have contracted some sort of Y2K12 stomach bug. Here are the comics I'll be buying tomorrow, if I don't suddenly die:
ACTION COMICS #5
It's 2012 and Grant Morrison & Andy Kubert are here to give us all new origin of Superman! Just what we needed, maybe. I dunno. Action Comics has been pretty great so I don't really care what it is that they do.
ANIMAL MAN #5
Jeff Lemire Week 2012 Part 1.
AVENGERS: X-SANCTION #2 (OF 4)
Ed McGuinness, I will buy anything you draw. Even if I don't totally "get" it.
FEAR ITSELF: THE FEARLESS #6 (OF 12)
Valkyrie, kicking ass and taking hammers.
Part 3 of the Irredeemable/Incorruptable crossover. Both books you should be reading.
STATIC SHOCK #5
Oh Static, I still like you. But I hope that the impending new writer brings in more readers and elevates this series.
SWAMP THING #5
I'm worried that the creepy decaying meat kid has gotten to me in real-life. *Urrp*
SWEET TOOTH #29
Jeff Lemire Week 2012 Part 2. New storyline! Good jumping-on point! Great book!
THE AVENGERS ANNUAL #1
And finally we get the conclusion of the Wonder Man/Revengers storyline.
THE DEFENDERS #2
Really dug the first issue. I'm onboard with this wacky team.
THE PUNISHER #7
What could make me love Greg Rucka's Punisher more? Oh, how about reteaming him with his Gotham Central artist Michael Lark and throw in a Daredevil guest-appearance. Yes, that'll do quite nicely.
Hey, remember Luke Cage and the Thunderbolts who are still active in present times? Let's check in with them, shall we?
UNCANNY X-FORCE #19.1
Special point-one jumping on point, wherein we get the story that will spin off into David Lapham's upcomnig Age of Apocalypse ongoing series. So, good for new X-Force readers and readers looking to hitch a ride on AoA.
UNCANNY X-MEN #4
A one-shot drawn by Brandon Peterson and featuring The Phalanx. Are you excited, 90's Tracie?
See you next week.
