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!

Perfect Pulls: It is a very X day from Marvel, with nearly every X-title getting a new issue today (which is never a bad thing). The two that stand out the most are Uncanny and All-New X-Men; according to writer Brian Michael Bendis, these two issues will answer all our questions about both X-23 and Magneto, and those questions are plentiful. If spiders are more your thing, we get both the latest issue of Superior Spider-Man as well as Doc Ock Spidey’s own Inhumanity tie-in. Since we know now that the end is near, these issues going forward are even more must-read than they were before. Also, an 80’s classic returns this week in the pages of Miracleman. No idea who that is? Fear not; this issue contains a primer to get you caught up.

Suicide Squad #27
Superboy #27
Superman Wonder Woman #4
Worlds’ Finest #19

Perfect Pulls: A bit of a quiet week from DC, but highlighted by a new issue of one of my favorite new books from the publisher. Justice League 3000 #2 is the follow-up to an outstanding first issue, which follows a dysfunctional team made up of somewhat-broken clones of the Justice League. Filled with over-the-top future science, fantastic art, and a hatred between Batman and Superman that is a blast,  this books is incredibly easy to recommend. If you missed the first issue, be sure to grab today’s and start tracking the first down! Meanwhile, the Durlan’s attack continues in the pages of Green Lantern Corps, where John Stewart tries to stop the destruction of the Sector Houses. And over in Superman Wonder Woman, we find out how the world reacts to finding out the two are more than just comrades-in-arms. In hindsight, maybe this week isn’t so quiet after all!

Alex + Ada #3 (Of 15)
Carbon Grey Volume 3 #2 (Of 2)
Egos #1
Ghosted #6
Peter Panzerfaust #16
Prophet #42
Protectors Inc #3
Rat Queens #4
Velvet #3
Voice In The Dark #3

Perfect Pulls: Hot on the heels of their huge announcements at Image EXPO 2014, Image already brings a new book to the table, and as usual it sounds extremely interesting. Ego focuses on Deuce, the former leader of a team of galactic heroes, who’ve since disbanded. However, a new threat has arisen, and now Deuce is out to reform the team to stop it. Of course, nothing is ever that easy, especially since he’ll likely have to sacrifice his marriage to achieve his goal. And, as always, along with a new book comes several more of Image’s best, with titles like Peter Panzerfaust and Prophet leading a pack of half a dozen more.

Perfect Pulls: After some smaller weeks, there are a lot of new books out from the indies today. First up is Curse from BOOM!, which mixes bounty hunting, a father out to save his son, and werewolves. That’s a combination that merits investigation. Dark Horse continues to expand it’s superhero universe with Skyman, spinning out of their entertaining Captain Midnight title. The Lil’-fication of comics rolls on as well; we have Lil’ Gotham from DC, Dark Horse recently had a Lil’ Hellboy, and now we get Dynamite’s contribution: Lil’ Battlestar Galactica. Can kids say frak? Combine these with both a Black Dynamite and an X-Files mini from IDW, and there are a lot of #1’s on the indie shelf today.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, January 15th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
