Perfect Pulls: The new faces of the Marvel universe are well represented this week, as the Avengers NOW movement kicks into high gear! Have you been wishing that your exposure to Tony Stark came with 100% more douchebaggery? Have you been wishing your exposure to Captain America came with 100% more wings? You’re in luck! This week sees the launch of Superior Iron Man #1 and All-New Captain America #1, bringing major changes to two of Marvel’s biggest names. Speaking of major changes, we also have Thor #2, the second issue of the female Thor’s solo book, of which the premier issue was outstanding. Spider-fans won’t want to miss Spider-Verse #1, oddly not the kicking-off point of the event (that was in last week’s Amazing Spider-Man #9) but obviously essential to the event. And, of course, let’s not forget about Axis, the massive event that’s bringing us all of these changes, which has a new issue today as well as tie-ins across Captain America and the Mighty Avengers and the utterly fantastic Axis: Hobgoblin.

Perfect Pulls: Endgame rolls on in the pages of Batman #36, which features one of the most terrifying depictions of Superman I’ve ever seen on the cover! Joker is back, and somehow he’s got the entire Justice League under his control, a loaded gun that he’s pointed directly at Gotham! How long can Batman survive the onslaught of the entire League, while also trying to stop one of his greatest rivals in the process? We’re certainly going to find out! This week also brings us a step closer to Convergence with the latest offerings of both New 52 Futures End and Earth 2 Worlds End, and Godhead rolls on in the pages of Green Lantern Corps #36.

Perfect Pulls: “Space westerns” may not have been a genre before, but Image has firmly created over these past few months, and this week it adds another title to its latest creation. Drifter, from Ivan Brandon and Nic Klein, takes us to a future where we’ve colonized and mined the life out of dozens of different worlds, leaving them barren as we bounce to the next one. However, when a transport crashes on an old backwater, it kicks off a chain of events that “set the stage for a story that combines the dark wonder of a strange and alien landscape with the struggles of an abandoned and lawless frontier town.” Ok, official solicit, consider me intrigued. Also this week is the latest chapter in The Walking Dead, the penultimate issue of the latest Millar title MPH, and the newest offering of the last sweet space western from Image, Copperhead.

Perfect Pulls: Dynamite Comics has a whole catalog of franchises I love, like The Shadow or Green Hornet, and for the most part their offerings in those brands always put a smile on my face. However, nothing Dynamite puts out makes me happier than The Lone Ranger. Spanning two volumes, Dynamite’s Lone Ranger titles have always been consistently fantastic, and it was with a heavy heart that I saw the most recent volume come to a close a few weeks back. That’s why I’m happy to report the start of a new miniseries this week with Lone Ranger Vindicated! If you’re a fan of the cowboy that won’t kill, but you’ve never read the comics, check out this mini, though you may want to read it before you leave the store; I suspect you’ll want to grab some trades after you do. Also this week, BOOM! premiers the latest Justin Jordan joint with the conspiracy-laden Deep State, Dark Horse brings us Fred Van Lente’s Resurrectionists, and IDW’s Bigger Bang looks to be a cool twist on the Superman trope.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, November 12th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
