Tyler’s Comic Corner – 10/8/14 Edition

Posted on October 8, 2014 at 12:01 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!


axis1covMarvel Releases

All-New Ultimates #9
Amazing Spider-Man #7
Avengers #36
Avengers And X-Men Axis #1 (Of 9)
Captain Marvel #8
Hawkeye Vs Deadpool #1 (Of 4)
Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble #13
Miracleman #12
Nightcrawler #7
Punisher #11
Rocket Raccoon #4
Savage Hulk #5
Thanos A God Up There Listening #1 (Of 4)
X-Force #10

Perfect PullsAxis is here! The next big thing from Marvel comes barreling in full force, as Red Skullxavieronslaught (go with it) brings his S-Men and racist hatred and promises to make the Marvel U a lousier place. As always, this event promises to change everything, but this looks like one of those times where most of the changes aren’t going to be very nice. Either way, I know I’m in for the ride. Speaking of events, Spider-verse continues in ASM #7 as well, in case you prefer your important events to come with extra legs. Finally, there’s another Thanos miniseries launching today, and I don’t think anyone has ever had enough Thanos in their life, so be sure to check that out too.

Arrow Season 2.5 #1

New Suicide Squad #3
Scooby-Doo Where Are You #50
Superman Wonder Woman #12
Worlds’ Finest #27

Perfect Pulls: The next big thing in Batman launches today as Endgame kicks off with a bang. What kind of bang, you ask? We’ve only seen one page so far, and it involves Batman rocking the most epic armored battle suit yet, and the cover seems to indicate a Batman vs. Justice League showdown, so the bang seems pretty big. Snyder and Capullo have been warning us for a month that this is going to be huge, so I can’t wait to see what happens. Meanwhile, the Futures End event continues with the latest in the weekly series, as well as the Earth 2 World’s End title kicking off a new weekly series that looks to tie into the war we keep hearing about but have yet to see. Got all that? If not, make sure you get on board, as big changes seem to be coming for the DCU!

Tales Of Honor #5
Thief Of Thieves #24
Wytches #1

Perfect Pulls: There aren’t many Image books that premier without an outcry of early joy from critics, but Wytches from Snyder and Jock may be hitting the shelves with the loudest applause. You name a major creator and chances are quite good I can find you a tweet from them praising the first issue, and the amount of pride you can see in the creative team behind this book is palpable. I’m not a fan of many horror books, but this is at the top of my pull list this week, and it should be on yours too. Also this week, check out the second issue of the impressive Copperhead, the latest Black Science, and rejoice as Spawn gets one issue closer to #250.

Perfect Pulls: There is a Fraggle Rock comic on this list today. Seriously. Go back and check that BOOM! list again and you’ll see I’m not making this up. Amazing, right? How do I even go on to tell you about a new AvP title from Dark Horse, more monstrous premiers from Dynamite with a new Evil Ernie and Vampirella titles, or the new Sabrina from Archie? How do I remind you that Valiant has a great jumping on point in X-O Manowar #0, or that Garth Ennis’ War Stories begins today from Avatar? I can’t, because I’m too busy being blown away that other people remember that show too!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, October 8th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
