As part of my birthday present, my wife decided to help me clean out my pull box at the local comic book store. I have a bad habit of not visiting the shop on a regular basis so books tend to pile up there pretty quick. For those of you that are curious, this is the up-to-date list of books on my pull list that I’ve been neglecting over the past month.
Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1–2
I love the DC Black Label format, which is printed on thicker stock and has a premium feel to it. As for the book itself, this duo is rarely off the mark so I’m looking forward to what’s been billed as their final Batman story together.
Everything Brubaker and Philips do is of the highest quality, including this new volume of Criminal. I’m enjoying the small arcs of a couple books per story. It makes everything new and fresh after a couple of issues.
Invisible Woman #1
I’ll admit that I was initially sold on the Adam Hughes cover but realizing that the book was written by Mark Waid, whose writing I enjoy, and drawn by Mattia de Iulis, whose recent work on Jessica Jones has been nothing short of a home run, it was hard not to pick it up. The second issue was released this past week but unfortunately my LCS didn’t have a copy.
Depending on how I feel at the end of this first issue, it might make its way onto my pull list full-time.
