Posted on October 24, 2012 at 10:42 am by Tyler Waterman

Welcome to Tyler’s Comic Corner, where I highlight the majority of this week’s new comic releases. My highlights include mainstream and indie titles, ensuring your pull list won’t be deprived of one of this week’s gems. My apologies if your favorite isn’t listed, but good news; you clearly already knew it was coming!

Wolverine #315 (Ben Ang Susan G. Komen Variant Cover), AR
Wolverine MAX #1 (Jock Regular Cover), $3.99
X-Treme X-Men #5, $2.99

Perfect Pulls: AvX Consequences has rapidly become the book I look forward to the most each Wednesday; if you followed the AvX epic but assumed this was just some throwaway tie-in, stop assuming that and start reading this. The real payoff of AvX is happening here. Also important to note that this is the final month for the majority of the books on this list. Both Cap titles, Iron Man, FF, Hulk, Journey into Mystery and Wolverine all come to an end this week, becoming the memories of Marvel THEN! as we boldly adventure into Marvel NOW! in the coming weeks. Oh, and A-Babies vs. X-Babies tries to come out this week as well, hopefully being more successful than it was at coming out last week.

DC Releases

All-Star Western #13
Batman Incorporated #4
Batman The Dark Knight #13
Fables #122
Flash #13
Fury Of Firestorm The Nuclear Men #13
I Vampire #13
Justice League Dark #13
Red Lanterns #13
Savage Hawkman #13
Superman #13
Talon #1
Teen Titans #13
Unwritten #42

Perfect Pulls: Very quiet release week for DC, though Batman Incorporated is always something to be excited about; one of the few comics I’m guaranteed to read once and then immediately read again each time it releases. Red Lanterns ties in to the current Rise of the Third Army storyline tearing through the Lantern-related books, and Superman #13 promises an important death and the start of a major Super-title event just over the horizon, He’l on Earth. It’s been a while since we’ve had a Super-centric storyline, and so far what they’ve shown has been promising, so this issue may be worth an investigation.

Image Releases

Artifacts #22
Debris #4 (Of 4)
Hack Slash #19
Invincible #96
Li’l Depressed Boy #14
Multiple Warheads Alphabet To Infinity #1 (Of 4)
Prophet #30
Revival #4
Spawn #224

Perfect Pulls: Invincible continues to tear toward it’s 100-issue milestone this week, and Spawn comes one month closer to its sure-to-be-controversial election issue. Critically-acclaimed miniseries Debris comes to a close as well, and fans of trippy art and trippier plots should definitely give Multiple Warheads a looksee, I think you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Indie Releases

Crossed Badlands #16 (Avatar)
Hero Worship #4 (Of 6) (Avatar)
Adventure Time #9 (BOOM!)
Bravest Warriors #1 (Of 6) (BOOM!)
Clive Barker’s Hellraiser #19 (BOOM!)
Extermination #5 (BOOM!)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Spike #3 (Dark Horse)
Dark Horse Presents #17 (Dark Horse)
Ghost #1 (Alex Ross Variant Cover) (Dark Horse)
Lord Of The Jungle #8 (Dynamite)
Marcus Nispel’s Chosen #1 (Of 3) (Dynamite)
Pantha #4 (Dynamite)
Red Sonja #70 (Dynamite)
Robert Jordan’s The Wheel Of Time The Eye Of The World #30 (Dynamite)
Shadow #6 (Dynamite)
Warriors Of Mars #5 (Of 5) (Dynamite)
Alan Robert’s Killogy #1 (Of 4) (IDW)
Battle Beasts #4 (Of 4) (IDW)
Cobra #18 (IDW)
Ghostbusters 100-Page Spooktacular (IDW)
Let’s Play God #1 (Of 4) (IDW)
Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #6 (Of 8) (IDW)

Perfect Pulls: Pendleton Ward’s not-Adventure-Time-related Bravest Warriors begins today. I’m a huge fan of Adventure Time, but I’ve always found the comic falls flat of delivering the style of humor the show conveys so well, so I’m excited to be introduced to his newest creation without the bias of a show going in. Fans of the darker side of superheroes or post-apocalyptic settings should be sure to check out Extermination. This series has been a real delight, expertly written with great “holy crap” moments, and this latest issue is the start of a new story arc, making it new reader friendly. Also, the return of Ghost from Dark Horse produced a fantastic zero issue, and the start of her monthly book this week picks up right from there.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, October 24th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!

      I can't wait for Batman #14. November can't come fast enough!!!

    • Can someone point me to where I can figure out what is going on with Nick Fury? I left Marvel for a long time and only re-engaged with them a year ago with Thor and Daredevil. I got sucked into AvX and decided to get with Uncanny Avengers; so I knew WTF was happening I picked up the Marvel Now primer and had no idea why I was looking at Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury. I thought that was only in the Ultimate universe? What happened to the cigar chomping, white sideburn Nick Fury?!? God I hate Marvel.

      I sure can. Go read the last run of Secret Warriors (it's only 28ish issues and is AMAZING) to have a full grasp as to what's going on with the Fury you know and love, then peruse Shattered Heroes – Battle Scars (it was a epilogue story to the Fear Itself event, but you didn't really need to read all of Fear Itself to read it) to find out what the deal is with the new Fury we have now.

      • I will give them a read, but what you are telling me is that they aren't actually the same person… right?

        • Tyler

          Nope they are officially not the same person hahaha

          • thejerd

            I hate Marvel. Lol
