Posted on October 28, 2015 at 5:12 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!

aqoh1covMarvel Releases

Angela Queen Of Hel #1
Captain America Sam Wilson #2
Chewbacca #2 (Of 5)
Deadpool Vs Thanos #4 (Of 4)
House Of M #4
Howling Commandos Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1
Kanan #7
New Avengers #2
Spider-Man 2099 #2
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1
What If Infinity Dark Reign #1
Where Monsters Dwell #5 (Of 5)

Perfect Pulls: After a few weeks of heavy lineups, today’s Marvel offerings are a bit lighter. The Anglea-in-the-Marvel-U experiment continues with Angela Queen of Hel; after a big intro and then lackluster follow-ups, I’m hoping this is where Angela starts to shine again. Star Wars gets a double-dip with a new issue of the surprisingly good Chewbacca, and the not surprisingly awesome Kanan. Finally, we get another of the What If? Infinity titles, and if the others have been any indication, you can probably avoid this and nothing of value will be lost.

All-Star Section 8 #5 (Of 6)
Aquaman #45
Art Ops #1

Perfect Pulls: It’s a good day to be a Robin! Whether you’re official or not, former or current, if you’re a Robin, chances are you’re represented on the DC shelf today! The unofficial Robins continue their adventure in the officially great We Are Robin, while the real Robin continues his journey in Robin Son of Batman. Meanwhile, past Robins come together in Batman and Robin Eternal… Robins as far as the eye can see, just as (Bat)God intended! And, speaking of Batgod, don’t miss out on the first of the Darkseid War tie-ins this week as well.

Black Magick #1
Chew #51
From Under Mountains #2
Island #4
IXth Generation #6
Manifest Destiny #18
ODY-C #8
Revival #34
Rumble #8
Savage Dragon #208
Spawn #257
Spread #11
They’re Not Like Us #9

Perfect Pulls: Image’s newest offering is also the latest Greg Rucka joint, and combined with Nicola Scott’s art, that should be all I need to tell you. However, if you must know more, does knowing this is a “gothic noir” tale of destiny, fate, magic, and a Portsmouth detective? Now I know you’re hooked. Also, don’t miss out on new issues of Rumble, Spawn, and more!
