Week 12: Fantastic Four #602 vs Flash #5

Eric’s Week 11 Pull List

    Nightwing Vol 3 #5 – the main plot takes a break while Dick deals with Voodoo! Red Hood and the Outlaws #5 – the book once again looks exciting.  We’ll see if #6 is disappointing or if Lobdell breaks the trend. Generation Hope

Week 11: Batman #5 vs Chew #23

Eric’s Book Eric:  I have to say that this week there was no shortage of great, great stories.  I almost chose Daredevil #8 for my entry this week because I thought Waid did such a great job on the writing.  There were neat twists, great

X-Men Legacy #260.1

Eric’s Week 10 Pull List

X-Men Legacy #260.1 – Rogue and team head to Wolverine’s school to work security.  They struggle with the idea of keeping the kids from having the X-Men childhood they did.  The book leaves Mike Carey’s hands, but Christos Gage does a good job with his

Week 10: Wolverine and the X-Men #4 vs Batwoman #5

Eric’s Book Eric: So I decided to go for a bit of a challenge this week. Dan hasn’t expressed much love for Wolverine and the X-Men whenever it’s come up. He definitely didn’t like the Alpha & Omega spin-off mini. But I really liked this

Looking Back at 2011

Man, it was a crazy year to get back into Comics.  Taking a cursory look back, we had: Hickman launch FF, which had the Fantastic Four taking in a ton of other people and even working with their enemies. Speaking of which, right before the

Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha & Omega #1

Eric’s Week 9 Pull List

It was a heavily X-Men week for me this week.  Some great issues and some OK issues.  All links go to Comic Vine. X-Men Vol 3 #23 – The end of the Sentinels in Eastern Europe arc. Good, but not great. Wolverine and the X-Men:

Week 9: Uncanny X-Men #4 vs Rachel Rising #4

Eric’s Book Eric: Welcome back for another POW! This week was actually a really tough week for me. I was unsure whether to pick Action Comics #5 (which was really emotional this week), Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha & Omega #1 which had an interesting

X-Men Legacy #260

Eric’s Pull List for Week 8

This week was a very small release for me, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t have some fun titles to read.  It was a bit X-Men week, that’s for sure!  I had 3 explicit X-Men books and Avengers: Children’s Crusade features them quite heavily as
