Pull List for September 12, 2018

Excit­ing new week of comics! Here’s what I read last week, and what I’m pick­ing up this week.

What I read last week

  • Dead­pool #4
    The first issue I picked up of this new run was issue #3, and was­n’t con­vinced with how Skot­tie Young wrote Dead­pool. It was­n’t very fun­ny. How­ev­er, this issue felt like a com­plete 180! It had me laugh­ing in a few dif­fer­ent moments.
  • Cov­er #1
    The premise for this was pret­ty clever and I enjoyed the first issue. I’ve heard peo­ple say they did­n’t like the art inside, but I thought it was pret­ty cool. Very dif­fer­ent and uncon­ven­tion­al, which I’d almost expect from a cre­ator-owned comic.
  • Paper Girls #24
    This com­ic is absolute­ly gor­geous. I’d love to frame the cov­er and hang it on my wall. Also, Cliff Chi­ang does a spec­tac­u­lar job with the inside. The col­ors are vibrant, the let­ter­ing is done very well, and it’s all print­ed on this glossy, thick­er-than-oth­er-books paper. And that’s to say noth­ing of the sto­ry. It was my first issue, and I’m very intrigued to see what hap­pens next. I’ll be buy­ing the back issues to catch up for sure.
  • Dead­pool #2
    Over the week­end I want­ed to get some of the back issues of this, since I start­ed on issue #3. The more I read this series, the more I like it. My ini­tial hes­i­ta­tion on Skot­tie Young is long gone.
  • Paper Girls Vol. 1
    After pick­ing up Paper Girls on Wednes­day I just had to catch up on this! I enjoyed the first vol­ume and I’m start­ing to under­stand some of the things I read in issue #24. Again, what beau­ti­ful art by Cliff Chi­ang. I’m just entranced with every panel.

Favorite of the week: Paper Girls #24

Picking up this week

  • The Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man #5
    The first arc of this new run comes to an end this week, and I’m intrigued to see what hap­pens. Nick Spencer is writ­ing the Spi­der-Man I want to read, but I’m sad to see Ryan Ott­ley’s run end.
  • Cat­woman #3
    Can’t even imag­ine the work involved in being the writer, artist, and main cov­er artist on a title, but Joëlle Jones does it. Inter­est­ed in see­ing where this arc is headed.
  • Fan­tas­tic Four #2
    A decid­ing issue of whether I keep pick­ing this up, or trade wait. I liked the first issue, but we’ll see where this arc is headed.
  • X‑23 #4
    Mariko Tama­ki is doing such a great job on this book. You can tell she did her home­work and under­stands the per­son­al­i­ty of Lau­ra and Gabby.
