Dom's Pull List: 7/13

Wolverine #1 - 365 Days of Comics
Jae Lee makes Wolvie do the snake dance.
The Red Wing #1 (of 4) - $3.50

That's a weird price, right? Regardless, the comic book is a Jonathan Hickman story who has been killing it with his Marvel work as of late: FF, Secret Warriors and S.H.I.E.L.D. I'm always willing to give a Hickman book a try.

X-Men: Schism #1 (of 5) - $4.99

My many days of listening to Ron Richards on podcasts has finally worn me down. I pick-up this X-Men event book due to his influence over my brain and his love of anything X-Men. He's like those alien things on Falling Skies that control you...but nicer...and not on my back.

Wolverine #12 - $3.99

Jason Aaron does Wolverine like no other writer. I have been picking up this book from about issue 5 and have enjoyed it quite a bit. The current story may not be as good as the last, but it still beats most non-team superhero books. Oh, and every cover is by Jae Lee...who is a cover God.

The Amazing Spider-Man #665 - $3.99

I just love Spidey. I will always pick-up ASM. Nuff said.

FF #6 - $2.99

As I mentioned before, Hickman has been doing a great job with FF. Currently Black Bolt has been introduced after a couple of years out of comics, and the multiple Reeds storyline is picking-up quite nicely. Besides the event books Flashpoint and Fear Itself, this is the issue I most look forward to reading each month.

Captain America #1 - 365 Days of Comics
The return of Steve...McNiven!
Captain America #1 - $3.99

Steve is back! No, not Steve Rogers...Steve McNiven! McNiven is an amazing penciler, which goes without saying, but more importantly to this title, McNiven draws the Cap outfit better than 99% of all other artists. I left that 1% open on the slight chance that some monk in Tibet may be the worlds greatest artist and I simply just never knew.

Detective Comics #879 - $2.99

If it wasn't for Scott Snyder's writing I would most likely not be getting a DC book this week. His work on Detective has become a run worth noting and certainly collecting in trade or hard cover format (once it becomes available). Snyder's work has been consistently good, which makes buying his comics an easy choice. You know they're going to be good.

The New Avengers #14 - $3.99

I can't pass-up a flagship title for Marvel. Bendis is looking to bounce back after his last story-arc on New Avengers didn't fair well with readers...including me. I have enjoyed the Fear Itself tie-ins which are in ongoing titles like Thunderbolts, Avengers and Invincible Iron Man, so I look forward to seeing if Marvel and Bendis can keep it up with this New Avengers tie-in.

Well, that's it for this week in pulls. Did I miss pickingup anything important? Keep in mind...I'm a Marvel Zombie.
