Posted on November 20, 2013 at 3:00 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!

SSMA1Marvel Releases

A+X #14
Avengers #23
Avengers A.I. #6
Cable And X-Force #16
Cataclysm The Ultimates #1 (Of 3)

Dexter #5 (Of 5)

X-Men #7
X-Men Legacy #20
Young Avengers #12

Perfect Pulls: Lots to look forward to today from Marvel, with something for every Marvel fan, regardless of whether you’re a mutant, human, or Inhuman. Of course, Infinity is still going strong, showing up predominantly in today’s Avengers #23, but also tied in with titles such as Thunderbolts #18The effects of Battle of the Atom play out in Uncanny X-Men #14, and if last week’s All-New X-Men proved anything, it’s that the New Xavier School is suddenly the most fascinating place in all of mutantdom. However, it’s fans of all things Superior that really win big this week. You can catch Doc Ock Spidey in a number of titles this week, especially with friends: the latest issue of Superior Spider-Man Team Up continues the Superior Six storyline, while the odd partnership of Magneto and Spidey graces half of A+X #14. The biggest title of them all, however, is Superior Spider-Man Annual #1. Unlike normal annuals, this is going to be extremely important to the overall story of the main title, as Doc Ock comes up against something he’s never had to do as Spider-Man: save Aunt May from certain death. The results of this book promise to be massive, so don’t miss it!

Wake #5 (Of 10)
Wonder Woman #25

Perfect Pulls: Been following along with the exceptional Zero Year tie-ins? Then you’re in luck, because two more are set to hit stands today, so make sure you don’t miss Red Hood and the Outlaws #25 or Birds of Prey #25 if they aren’t already on your list. The hotly anticipated (and somewhat controversial) Harley Quinn #0 comes out today, with a different artist drawing each page, so that should be worth a look even if just for the novelty of 17 artists in one place! Finally, the massive Forever Evil continues with Rogues Rebellion #2, while the ongoing effects of the latest Lantern event Lights Out spin on in Green Lantern New Guardians #25. Considering Kyle is supposed to be dead now, the book that focuses on Kyle is about to get a whole lot different!


VitDcoverImage Releases

Clone #12
Savage Dragon #192
Sex Criminals #3
Sheltered #5
Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth #7
Voice In The Dark #1
Zero #3

Perfect Pulls: Image has a weird new book this week, which I guess isn’t very different from normal. Meet Voice in the Dark, the story about a girl who’s celebrating her new start to life as she heads off to college. I say new start, because it’s finally helped prevent her from killing anyone. But once she becomes the host of the campus’ late night radio show, her dark urges suddenly find a new outlet, and while what happens isn’t clear, I can assume it isn’t going to be good. The controversial Sex Criminals also has a new issue this week, along with the extremely impressive not-so-normal espionage thriller Zero, one of my favorite books out of Image right now.

Perfect Pulls: All kinds of greatness out of the indies this week, both new titles and continuations of some of my favorites. Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t first mention the second issue of Afterlife with Archie, a series that blew everyone away with how realistic and downright awesome an Archie comic can really be. IDW, kings of bringing cartoons back to life with their comics, have another issue of their outstanding Samurai Jack series. The first issue perfectly captured the feel and style of the show, and if you were ever a fan of the cartoon you need to be reading this book. Dark Horse has a new issue of Kiss Me, Satan out, one of my favorite supernatural comics out there, as well as a new Star Wars series, Force War. Finally, if you’re a fan of Dynamite’s Pathfinder series, their is a special one-shot issue you won’t want to miss this week!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, November 20th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
