Posted on December 23, 2015 at 6:47 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!


dv14covMarvel Releases

Amazing Spider-Man #5
Angela Queen Of Hel #3
Astonishing Ant-Man #3
Daredevil #2
Darth Vader #14
Deadpool #4
Extraordinary X-Men #4
Figment 2 #4 (Of 5)

New Avengers #4
Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat #1
Spider-Woman #2
Star-Lord #2
Venom Space Knight #2

Perfect Pulls: Is there a comic that nails a character better than Darth Vader? This comic has been a glorious look into the mind of one of the greatest Sith Lords of all time, and the current Vader Down event has been the perfect combination of this book and the also-excellent Star Wars title. If you’re sleeping on this book, wake up! This week also has new issues of some of the finest new Marvel books, including Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, and Extraordinary X-Men, so don’t miss those. Finally, if you’re one of those rabid Hellcat fans (wait, what?), today is your day, as her own solo book kicks off this week!


dkIII2covDC Releases

Aquaman #47
Art Ops #3
Astro City #30
Batman ’66 Meets The Man From U.N.C.L.E. #1 (Of 6)
Batman And Robin Eternal #12
Batman Arkham Knight #12
Cyborg #6
Dark Knight III The Master Race #2 (Of 8)
DC Comics Bombshells #7
Deathstroke #13
Gotham By Midnight #12
He-Man The Eternity War #13
Jacked #2 (Of 6)
Justice League 3001 #7
Justice League Of America #6
Last Gang In Town #1 (Of 7)
Robin Son Of Batman #7
Sinestro #18
Superman #47
Teen Titans #15
Titans Hunt #3 (Of 12)

Perfect Pulls: I love Frank Miller’s Daredevil, but I’m not a big fan of his Dark Knight. It’s revered, but for me, it falls flat. That being said, I picked up the first issue of Dark Knight III and was really pleasantly surprised by how hooked I was; it’s unlikely this will become a favorite of mine, but I’m definitely looking forward to today’s new issue. There’s also lots of new Robin War tie-ins, a new issue of the epic Sinestro, and no BS fake tie-ins trying to steal $7.99 from you… good job, DC!


jc2covImage Releases

Chew #53
Covenant #5
Deadly Class #17
Invisible Republic #8
Island #5
Jupiter’s Circle Volume 2 #2 (Of 6)
Nameless #6
Outcast By Kirkman And Azaceta #14
Pretty Deadly #7
Saga #32
Sidekick #12

Perfect Pulls: It’s a shorter list from Image this week, but it’s a loaded one! New issues of Saga, Pretty Deadly, and Deadly Class make this an awesome week. Also, if you’re not paying attention to Jupiter’s Circle, rectify that. I can’t even explain why I like this title so much, but every issue just feels so solid and unique. Grab the trades, and then start grabbing this: you won’t miss it.

Perfect Pulls: After lots and lots (and lots) of delays, we finally have a new issue of Mega Man today… I hope! Unfortunately, it’s the last issue before a hiatus for the series, but I’m cautiously optimistic that that hiatus is going to lead to a Mega Man X title, so I’m willing to wait for that! Valiant has new issues of Rai and Bloodshot Reborn this week, two of my favorite books they’ve ever made, along with a new Doctor Mirage miniseries kicking off as well. Finally, fans of the film The Martian will want to check out BOOM! Studios’ Venus, which carries the same colonize-or-die vibe.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, December 23rd. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
